Excerpt from The Appeal for Social Justice: An Address in the Rodef Shalom Temple Pittsburgh, Sunday, November 3, 1912
Twenty-five years ago it was believed that the modern Messiah had come in America. If you read the literature of that period you will find that frequent expr... es sion was given to the belief that the time was nigh when sectarian doctrines which invite separatism were about to depart, that the idea was current that men were about to agree upon a common basis of religious organization and that upon such a phrase as the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man, the church universal was about to be established. Men said that there would be no more Protestants, no more Cath olics, no more Jews, none of the old sectarianism; only one universal church would be needed to house the en tire army of God. The time has passed; the church is not yet here, and the Messiah has not yet come; and he will not come, and he cannot come, until we have obeyed this command of Isaiah, Thus saith the Lord, do ye justice and keep ye equity.
