The secret of a better civilization is bound up in the Master’s teachings of the brotherhood of man, the good will of love and mutual trust. But in this brotherhood of Jesus, there is no place for sectarian rivalry, group bitterness, nor assertions of moral superiority and spiritual infallibility. As Jesus said, a house divided against itself cannot stand. (Mark 3:25)
The only hope of a possible unification of Christianity rests with the unadulterated teachings of the living Jesus.
It is just because the gospel of Jesus was so many-sided that within a few centuries, students of the records of his teachings became divided up into so many cults and sects. This pitiful subdivision of Christian believers results from failure to discern in the Master's manifold teachings the divine oneness of his matchless life. Truly, for those who love Jesus, a lack of spiritual brotherhood is both inexcusable and reprehensible.
But someday the true believers in Jesus will not be thus spiritually divided. The true church—the Jesus brotherhood—is invisible, spiritual, and is characterized by unity – spiritual unity. And this brotherhood is destined to become a living organism in contrast to institutionalized social organizations.
Yes, the kingdom of the divine brotherhood is still alive and will eventually and certainly come forth from this long submergence, just as surely as the butterfly eventually emerges as the beautiful unfolding of its less attractive creature of metamorphic development.
