The Essence of Christianity

"The very essence of Christianity is personal loyalty, passionate loyalty to our adorable Chief. In the idea of Christ is life; let the thought of Him once get touch of the soul, and it rises up, a living power, independent of all formularies of the brain. Let us save Christianity for our children by bringing them into allegiance to Christ the King. How? How did the of Cavaliers bring reverence for not too worthy princes? Their own hearts were full of it; their lips spake it; their acts proclaimed it; the style of the clothes, the ring of their voices, the carriage of their heads--all was one proclamation of boundless devotion to their king and his cause." ~~CM

"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
~~Deuteronomy 6:5-7
