“We are so utterly ordinary, so commonplace, while
we profess to know a Power the Twentieth Century does not reckon with.
But we are "harmless," and therefore unharmed. We are spiritual
pacifists, non-militants, conscientious objectors in this
battle-to-the-death with principalities and powers in high places.
Meekness must be had for contact with men, but brass, outspoken boldness
is required to take part in the comradeship of the Cross. We are
"sideliners" -- coaching and criticizing the real wrestlers while
content to sit by and leave the enemies of God unchallenged. The world
cannot hate us, we are too much like its own.
