Material objects in the material world are subject to change, but the cause of The Kingdom is never ending. Therefore it is the most important. But alas! alas! day by day the power of the kingdom is weakened, the material forces of nature gain the ascendency. The divine signs are becoming less and less and the material powers more and more. It has reached such a degree that the materialists are daily progressing and advancing, and the divine are vanishing.
Irreligion has conquered religion. The reason for the chaotic condition lies in the differences among the religions themselves, and animosity and hatred among the sects and denominations. The materialists have availed themselves of this difference amongst the religions and are constantly attacking them so that they may uproot the tree of religion. As the religions are contending among themselves they are being vanquished. If the general is at variance with his army on account of military tactics there is no doubt that he will be defeated by the enemy. Now religions are at variance; war and strife exist among them, and they are backbiting each other, shunning each other's association nay, rather, if necessary, they engage in shedding each other's blood. Read history and see what horrible events have transpired. All the prophets were sent for the sake of Christ, but alas! that the Talmud and superstitions contained therein could veil Jesus to such a degree that they crucified their promised Messiah. Had they forgotten the Talmudic traditions and investigated in reality the religion of Moses there is no doubt that they would have become believers in Christ. But imitations deprived them of their Messianic bounty. They were not refreshed by the downpour of rain of mercy; neither were they illumined by the rays of the sun of truth.
