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.

Revivalism in America & Siam

Readers of this blog might be interested in a posting I just made to the modest blog I maintain in conjunction with my personal website, herbswanson.com.  The posting is entitled, "McGilvary in America and Siam" and contains some basic reflections on the role of Presbyterian missions in the history of 19th and early 20th century Protestantism in Thailand.  It's there if you are interested.
