Excerpt from The Improvement Era, Vol. 9: Organ of Young Men's Mutual Improvement Associations According to this theory, Humanity has no providence outside of itself. Here the Brotherhood of man and Fraternity of action are strongly emphasized; while the Fatherhood of God and a divine providence are entirely lost sight of. The Brotherhood of man without the Fatherhood of God seems like a circle without a cen ter, or a solar system without a sun.
Brotherhood implies Fatherhood. Brotherhood implies limita tions; but when we cross the border into the domain of Father hood; we find no limit, no place to rest. Luke, in tracing the genealogies of the fathers, when he comes to Adam, says, Which was the son of God, and stops, but the mind goes on.
