To experience the totality of those who believe in Christ as one organism, as one body, as the Body of Christ, is a special experience of faith. With this Body we are indissolubly united; its life is our life, its deficiency is our deficiency, its weakness is our weakness, its strength is our strength.- Eberhard Arnold
- 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.
