Through unity with the eternal powers we must gain the strength of character to be tested in the stream of the world, the strength which alone can cope with the demands of the age. Not escape, but concentration for the attack, is the watch word.- Eberhard Arnold

Whoever has discerned in the revolutionary movements the awakening of conscience in the sense of the Sermon on the Mount and in the sense of the future kingdom of God fights all the more sharply against the demonic powers of impurity, the murder spirit, lying polemics, and the greed for possession and power in socialism and communism. But it is of great importance that just in this decisive struggle Christians discern the awakening for God, and that they witness to Christ in the midst of the socialist, pacifist and communist movements of conscience.

The all-embracing Spirit is the unity of all freed spirits. He effects the freedom of the soul’s powers, which now flow toward one another, without remaining dependent on sympathy or antipathy, on the states of the body. The Spirit dominates the uniting of men, and takes into His sphere all material goods. Where freedom, purity and the love of God reign; where Christ lives in the individuals; where His Spirit unfolds all gifts and powers, there grows a living unity which can only be seen as one body.- Eberhard Arnold
The discipline of God’s Church is the most careful marriage chastity. First and foremost it means unstained purity before marriage and outside of marriage. Yet also in a very serious and definite way this discipline means the right mutual choice of spouses, on the basis of their natural but even more their spiritual calling for one another. One marries the one human being who is destined for one from eternity.- Eberhard Arnold
