A Moment: On “Hope”

“It is obvious that from the Christian standpoint no greater injury can be done to the true progress and healing of humanity in this present evil world than to make it promises and offer it remedies which have no vital connection with the hope of eternal life.  For this hope along can in the long run feed and keep flowing every stream of altruistic activity that deserves the name of religion.” _Geerhardus Vos, “Eschatology of the Psalter,” 364
