Excerpt from book:
normal. In other words, it is not as it should be. But if each one would take on a normal personality, assuming the characteristics of Christ, all our problems would be automatically solved. Jesus of Nazareth was Man in the Superlative. Whilst other men have been great in special lines, He was supreme in all things that make men and women that which they should be in order to be happy. To make this out it is not necessary to claim that He was a military genius, for the whole subject of war is abnormal, and can exist only while the human family is abnormal. All such men as Caesar and Napoleon are abnormal, whose greatness was the greatness of Satan. But the completeness and perfection of the work of Jesus of Nazareth, providing as it does for every need of humanity, demonstrates that He was supremely great in everything that goes to make genuine greatness. His was the universal and perfectly balanced nature. He seems to have been endowed with a reserve force that could not be exhausted. We know that He had a mental reach that never fell short, and a moral virility that was invincible. PHILOSOPHIC PRESUMPTION. One of the titles by which He is known, is "The Son of God." As to the exact meaning of this, no human can possibly know. And yet men of philosophic turn of mind have sought to peer into theinscrutable mysteries of the Holy Trinity, and ascertain the unknowable with the regard to the relationship of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The controversy this engenders is a towering monument tohuman folly. The dispute is infinitely above our reach.
