Quotation: Ernest Newlandsmith (1955)

"For Christians to pray 'Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven' would seem to be little else but a taking of God's Name in vain, for it is abundantly clear that such practices* could not possibly prevail in the Kingdom of God - a Kingdom of LOVE - which Christ has commanded us to seek before all things else."

From a letter which appeared in the Spring 1955 edition of World Forum
