'Tis less a religious revival than a base opportunism which leads them to search the Scriptures, but so be it! God can turn even base incentives to his own purposes. There is no controversy over the fact that Christ enjoins his followers to show hospitality and kindness to outsiders. The parable of the Good Samaritan demonstr
