EBERHARD ARNOLD: SALT AND LIGHT. "Whoever receives God's life and grasps the nature of God's future has taken on the character of salt. What is important to God is genuineness. He does not expect a person to adopt an attitude that is not in accord with his inner self and feelings. Christ sees as his friends all those who have his spirit, who breathe his life. The powers of the future world are at work in them, revealing unconditional love, righteousness, and purity. The coming kingdom, which will encompass the whole earth, belongs to God. It opposes all decay; all that is insipid, flabby, and weak. It resists death." -- from Salt and Light, 1920 Learn more about Eberhard Arnold at
