Excerpt from What I Believe and Why I Believe It

No attempt was made to formulate doctrines. Spiritual truth is apprehended not by elaborat ing theologies but in living.

At the same time due respect was paid to the religious convictions of all men. There are great fundamental truths that all devout men, of whatever race or creed, believe in, and these are the truths that are sought and emphasized. Stick to the fundamentals and you will not quarrel with anyone.

There was no desire to preach a new gospel,declare a new philosophy, or propagate new theories. In fact, the purpose of the addresses was not so much to inform the minds of the hearers as to clarify their ideals, quicken their moral life and inspire their spiritual aspirations.

One word of explanation. Concerning the speaker may be permitted. He is not a minis ter in a professional sense. As a certified public accountant he has a part in the busy world of affairs and steps to his Sunday plat form, not from study and ministerial confer ence, but from counting room and business Of fice. He knows at first hand the temptations, doubts, discouragements and weaknesses of the man in the street and his addresses are wrought out in the hot fires of commercial struggle and business rivalries. This fact may account for his slight regard for speculation and theology, and his emphasis upon the practical phases of religious life and belief.
