Only those hearts have peace and only those people bring peace and cause peace who love the whole truth. The truth of God brings wisdom and genuineness, for it creates perfect love. Love is ultimate truth. It brings peace. Love, as the peace of God, is the bond of perfection that unites in complete surrender and common activity all that was broken and scattered.- Eberhard Arnold
- Eberhard Arnold God’s Revolution
Where the Kingdom of God, the rule of Christ, is being proclaimed, things start happening. That is why John the Baptist was challenged: Why are you asking? Look at what is happening, listen to what is being said, and accept it. This is what is happening here: The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised. (Matt. 11:5)
Jesus is saying that if only you could believe what is actually happening, Christ would be revealed to you, and your questions about God’s Kingdom would be answered. That is what faith means.

God went out from himself. He has truly revealed himself in His Word, in the creation which came to pass through His Word, in the incarnation of His Word, and in His Spirit of truth and unity. God has opened His heart. He has come forth from himself. He has turned toward us. He has revealed His thoughts to us. He has revealed His essence and His will to us. We little, weak beings are the object of His concern.- Eberhard Arnold
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
