True Christianity Is From The Inside Out
Christianity teaches us to work from within to the outward and not vice versa; the perfect life, whether individual or social, cannot be attained through any programme imposed externally: spiritual rebirth is essential and it proceeds from freedom and grace. Compulsion will never make good Christians or a Christian social order; there must be an effective and real change in the hearts of persons and of peoples, and the realization of this perfect life is a task of infinite difficulty and endless duration.
Nicholas Berdyaev - The Bourgeois Mind, 1934
