We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

Britain's "Street Angels": From Binge to Better
The street angel movement reflects the way in which the Spirit manifests itself in its longstanding campaign for peace on earth.

Amen.
