Excerpt from The Catholic Fortnightly Review, 1909, Vol. 16
The expression Kingdom of God is of frequent occurrence in the New Testament, and few Biblical phrases are more persistently misunderstood. In using this phrase the Savior meant to figure the abode of the Blessed in ... Heaven. This is at least the more common opinion of the Fathers of the Church. It is sufficient to refer to such a Well-known text as My kingdom is not of this world for, proof of this explanation. And yet untold thousands are encouraged inthe belief that Christ meant merely an earthly kingdom, from which pain and sorrow and misery should be banished and material prosperity rule as the supreme blessing.
This erroneous interpretation has been carried into the Protestant pulpit, and it may justly be said that of all fallacies and errors taught there, few produce more harm.
