Sunday School Chronicle
In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria…
God's Gospel is made not for Englishmen, but for all men. Many think the Gospel is a very beautiful thing — if you would only keep it at home; but the moment you try to apply it to anybody else, it will not suit them. Try it upon the poor man; he is too low. Try it upon the Hindoo; he is too high. Each of these must have a religion of his own; one would not suit them all. The rice that forms a suitable food for the natives of hot climates is not suitable for the bleak north. The food that is suitable for the north, the clothing and house suitable for the north, are not suitable for the tropics, and so with religion. "A man looked into the eye of an Anglo-Saxon," says William Arthur, "and he said, 'These are different organisations; you are not so bewildered as to think you can enlighten both these eyes with the same sun. You must have a sun for each of them; you must have different suns, you see, because the eyes are differently organised.'" Very well, that is exceedingly fine in theory, but try it — try whether the sun which God put in the heaven will not illuminate the pale eye of the northerner and the dark eye of the southerner.
