Full-time Christianity

"A great many so-called Christians think they may go to meeting weeks at a time and neglect their business, and that God approbates such idleness because it is religious, as if religion consisted in going to meeting and ended when meeting was over. But the truth is that Christ’s religion is as much in the field, the store room, the work shop, as it is in the church house." -- Elder J. R. Respess of Georgia writing in the Gospel Messenger, July 1886
