Jesus Christ: To this end was the Son of God manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3: 8.)
Mrs. Mary H. Hunt: The star of hope of the temperance reform is over the schoolhouse.
Ex-Senator Henry W. Blair, U. S. 1907: The temperance movement must include all poisonous substances which create or excite unnatural appetite, and international prohibition is the goal.
International Sunday-school Convention, Louisville, Ky., U. S. A., 1908: We rejoice that the Sunday-school host has had so vital a share in abolishing the accursed traffic [in many States and towns] by faithful education of the coming generation in Christian principles, and in economic fact seen in the light of those principles. We desire to urge upon Sunday-schools everywhere a consciousness of the strategic position that the Sunday-school holds in the campaign, and to commend to all such schools the most careful and thorough teaching of the Quarterly Temperance Lessons, and co-operation with other agencies In establishing habits of total abstinence and abolishing the liquor traffic.
Cardinal Manning: The chief bar to the working of the Holy Spirit of God in the souls of men and women is intoxicating drink. I know of no antagonist to that good Spirit more subtle, more stealthy, more ubiquitous than intoxicating drink. Though I have known men and women destroyed for all manner of reasons, yet I know of no cause that affects man, woman, child, and home with such universality of power as intoxicating drink.
Rev. G. Campbell Morgan, D.D., London, 1908: If at this crisis the Church of God does not speak, then she is guiltily silent, and the issue will be her own condemnation and undoing in the days that lie ahead. We must remember when Christ challenged evil, evil challenged Christ. We must remember that the plea of the devil as he faced Christ was this: Let us alone: what have we to do with Thee? What was Christs answer? He rebuked the unclean spirit and demanded that he should come out, and, in coming out, the spirit cast the man to the ground and rent him. Before this demon comes out there will be much rending... I know the difficulty of this problem. The difficulty of it is that we are not willing, we Christian men and women, to submit this whole question to the simple arbitration of the Christian ideal.
Rev. Theodore L. Cuyler, D.D., Ex-President of The National Temperance Society, U. S.: If Jesus Christ established this church for the very purpose of saving human society from its sins, then the hugest sin should command the church's most serious attention. For the Christian church to ignore the drink evil is as absurd as for the West Point Military Academy to ignore the use of artillery, or for a medical college to ignore the treatment of fevers.
Clinton N. Howard, Rochester, U. S. A., in address to Preachers Meeting there, 1908: A religion that leaves the saloon undisturbed, unattacked, is not worthy to be called after the name of Jesus Christ. This ethical wave against the saloon has come like a hurricane upon the deck of a pirate ship. There is but one explanation: Jesus Christ is walking across the American Continent: every place His holy foot is lifted leaves a dry spot. And its meaning is, the liquor traffic must and shall be destroyed. In the name of Jesus Christ, the King, the saloon must die.
