  21. 21. A New Standard of Christian Liberty<br />Christian Standard, January 2, 1909, p. 11<br /> “The claim of those who are most insistent on the retention of Professor Willett, as a representative teacher, on the Centennial program, is on the ground of what they are pleased to call “liberty”; that is, “liberty” to teach their own conceits, whether in accord with the word of God or not. <br /> That the brethren may keep fresh in mind precisely what they mean by the word “liberty,” we reproduce a few specimens of their teaching, as copied from their own official organ….” <br />“6. It will be a happy day for the church when her ministers are trained in undenominational schools, where the truth is sought independent of any sectarian bias.”<br />
