CHAIR-TALKS ON PERFECTION

 

 

By Charles J. Fowler

 

President National Association for the Promotion of Holiness

1918

 

 

 INTRODUCTION

 

“About right,” [i.e., “nearly right”] is always wrong. This is true in mathematics and in ethics. Two and two equal three and seven-eighths would be about right; and that one pint and three-quarters of milk equal a quart would be most right also. What would all think of that sort of reckoning?

What do men in general demand of themselves and of others? just weights and measures-agreement with recognized standards.

What is this but “perfection?” perfection in every-day affairs.

What does the human conscience demand when it comes to moral character and conduct? -- nothing less than being right.

Perfection, though this term may not be used, is on men’s hands and always has been and always will be.

What shall be done about it?

 

 

PART FIRST -- BE PERFECT

 

PART SECOND -- BIBLE PERFECTION
