CHRISTIANS are in the world what the soul is in the body. The soul is diffused throughout the members of the body; so are Christians throughout the countries of the world. The soul dwells in the body, but is not of the body; so Christians are in the world, but not of the world. The soul is in the body, but invisible; so Christians are in the world, but their religion is not known to it. The soul is a prisoner in the body, and keeps the body together; so Christians are kept like prisoners in the world, but the world is held together by them. The immortal soul dwells in the mortal body; so Christians sojourn on earth in what is corruptible, and look for incorruption in heaven.
