Excerpt: "The Kingdom of God stands over and against the kingdoms of this world. While the kingdoms of this world are concerned with insuring their longevity the Kingdom of God remains unthreatened by the passing of time. It is eternal. Whereas the kingdoms of this world measure their greatness by the extension of their boundaries, the Kingdom of God need not prove itself by outward conquest. Its Glory lies in the reigning power of the King; and that power is Love. And while the kingdoms of this world erect structures for the purpose of self-preservation, the Kingdom of God poses a contrastingly different way which is founded in Truth."
