“The Word of God
 is the king of words
and its pervasive influence is incalculable.
It hath ever dominated
and will continue to dominate
 the realm of being…
…The Word is the master key for the whole world
inasmuch through its potency
the doors of the hearts of men,
which in reality are the doors of heaven,
are unlocked…”
