"This World: Playground or Battleground?" is a wonderful call to the real world or the spiritual life. Christianity exercised a dominant influence over the thinking of our forefathers. They conceived the world as a battleground. They believed in sin and the devil and hell as constituting one force, and . . . in God and righteousness and heaven as the other. How different today. People think of the world not as a battleground, but as a playground.
