Being a Crusader

The humblest citizen of all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of error. (William Jennings Bryan, late 19th and early 20th century political activist)

Bryan was a noted orator and politician, running in three US presidential elections. He is noted, also, as a witness for the prosecution in the so-called “monkey trial” in Dayton, Tennessee, opposing the teaching of evolution in public schools. He was a devoted Christian whose witness encouraged others who are less well known to pursue just causes fervently.

Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper (Proverbs 11:11).
