A Christian gospel , similar to that which drew men to the servic * of the nation during the World war , is one of the great needs . ; The . present generation , is spiritually wistful . Too often the mild demands of orthodoxy have led young people to find atheism almost more of an advantage than faith . A tame gospel will always fail . Life cannot be bought cheap . The gospel for the age must have in it a demand for the same devotion that was called out by the World war . The war was the one thing that lifted men out of their own selfish concerns and gave purpose to life . In spite of its horrors , it provided a reason for existence . For most men , nothing like it has come along since . Many are in a state of mild desperation , tamed and conformed , looking back on the great days when there was a world to be fought for .
