An Extremist, and Proud of it
An Extremist, and Proud of it.
Harry Holland was never afraid to declare his faith. This is from a speech of his in 1920, when three members accused his party of being “extremists.”
“What man,” asked Mr. Holland, “is worth while if he is not an extremist? Would Christ ever have gone to the Cross if He had not been an extremist? Would the primitive Christians, especially during the first three centuries of Christian history, ever have been called upon to endure what they endured if they had not been extremists? Would the Christians have made Christianity the power it eventually became if they had not been extremists? Who would object to a man being extremely honest?”
