I have faith that in these days of political world crisis the hour has come near when many will turn away from world politics and will seek a better way of justice, national community and peace among men, turning towards that government which knows no other kingdom than the one that is truly of God.- Eberhard Arnold

When we are no longer able to be there for all men, when we can no longer concern ourselves with the need and suffering of the whole world, our life has no longer any right to exist. As long as I live, I shall protest if people who are fighting for any ideal whatsoever no longer find an understanding among us. People who are fighting with a free and generous spirit for purity, for national unity, for pacifism, for a renewal of national characteristics, who are fighting for any political ideal, for any renewal of society cannot do it just in their own strength. If we were to have an understanding only for Anabaptist thinking, I shall not go along with it. I shall protest against it as long as I live.

In God, as the central sun of our being, we find the middle point of our inner life, because we recognize in Him the central fire of all creation and of all history and of the history of the end of all things.- Eberhard Arnold
Where Jesus’ influence makes men into real men, their life becomes genuine and pure. It shines into the darkness of the world around and unmasks what is false and untrue—what is trying to hide. But the light which Jesus kindles is not exhausted by just making a situation clear. Cold light has no part in the kingdom of God. What matters is to live in God’s heart and from God’s heart. As with the sun, the brightness of His being is inseparable from life-kindling warmth.- Eberhard Arnold
