I have your letter. My message to the Christians would be to cultivate humility
instead of arrogating to themselves the exclusive possession of absolute truth.
The only way I know of bringing about better understanding between different
peoples is to treat all as of ourselves.
Allen Melton, Esq.
World Fellowship Council
[This message was sent in response to a request
by Allen Melton, President of the World Fellowship Council, Dallas, Texas, for
publication in a collection of sermons of great ministers from various
countries. Mr. Melton said, in a letter of July 30, 1929, that he was being
asked, though not a Christian, because he followed Christ. He asked for a
"heart-felt message to the people who call themselves Christians," and
to offer "suggestions to bring about a better understanding between people
of foreign birth and those who are natives."11]
