A Quote by John Neville Figgis on character, christ, contempt, conventionality, faith, fatherhood, happiness, hatred, losing, love, men, past, religion, sentimentality, simplicity, and tears

Men have, for the most part, done with lamenting their lost faith. Sentimental tears over the happy, simple Christendom of their fathers are a thing of the past. They are proclaiming now their contempt for Christ's character, and their disgust at the very name of love. Scorn and hatred, difference and division, must be more than ever our lot, if we would be the followers of Christ in these days. Conventional religion and polite unbelief are gone forever.
