A Call to Simplicity
In this booklet four authors appeal for a return, not to the old paths, but to the Scriptural pattern. Conformity to God’s will must be the only way to progress since He holds the future.
In a complicated world new ideas are constantly being put forth with the object of solving some of the problems. It is not surprising that the Church should adopt a similar attitude. Some new ideas are better than others, but many raise more problems than they are supposed to solve. This of course is retrogressive and counterproductive.
In this booklet four authors appeal for a return, to the Scriptural pattern. God surely holds the future and conformity to His will must logically be the only way to progress.
