Quote of the Day

“The inclination of evangelicals, and particularly of fundamentalists, is to take for granted that the Bible approves participation in war and [to] classify all opposition to it as identified with the pacifism espoused by liberals. The evangelical fellowship should be better informed.”

— C.N. Hostetter, Jr., twentieth-century Brethren in Christ church leader and former president of Messiah College, in a 1954 letter to evangelical leader Carl F.H. Henry
