circa 1902-1904


In this sermon, Earl Davis discusses the pitfalls of creeds, which in his view are more destructive of honesty and integrity than the false ideas about property that undermined the failed communistic society immediately following Christ's life. He believe it is only a shared high purpose that can bind society, not shared beliefs.
