Religious Attitudes in Conflict - May 1929

The following are excerpts from the article titled “Religious Attitudes In Conflict”. The article originally appeared in the May 1929 issue of Methodist Review.

“To say that a man is religious, even Christian, to-day is a definite as to say he is an engineer. If he is an engineer he may be electrical, chemical, locomotive, civil engineer, or perhaps several other kinds.”

“The above three attitudes [Reactionism, Conservatism, Fundamentalism] constitute what might be called the conservative or left wing of religious thinking.” [Ed.-‘left wing’ is not a typo]”

“Still further, religious distance between groups is shown when social problems, such as outlawry of war, elimination of social evils, race relationship, child labor or the wage system press for solution.”
