What good is our religion to a dying child?

Interesting quote from Eberhard Arnold's biography, Against the Wind....
“Humanity must turn around. What good are all its religious practices, what good are all its church services, what point is there in all its devout singing if God’s will is not done and hands remain steeped in blood? What does people’s faith mean if injustice is done to the poor as casually as one drinks a glass of water? What good is it to profess the divine if not even a little finger is lifted when countless children and poor people die?”

Eberhard Arnold, from “god and the future of humanity,” a lecture
Something to think about...
