CHRISTENDOM IN SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 28 November 1914
CHRISTENDOM IN SURVEY. While Church and State are in many respects totally separate, nevertheless throughout what we term Christendom they are so closely related and inter twined as to appear one, and this one ness we believe the Scriptures to teach will increase until for all practical purposes they will be one. We surmise that this will be accoumplishled within the next three years. The Commnittee on Church Federation appointed some time ago is to meet in December. 1908. Conditions during tihe present year will undoubtedly cause the idea of Church Federation to take firmer hold thani over upon thlie public minid, especially upon the clerics, and our expectation, therefore, is that two years later it will be an accomplished fact. Quite pro bably by that time somie arrangement will have been effected between the Episcopal system atnd other Protestant demountations, whereby t hlie clergy of the latter will all be recognized by the former -probably by the lpiscopal clergy in some mann...
