Hudson Taylor


Student Review

I have seen that living in luxury is pointless and not only that but it can effect the way
one lives for God. When you live with just the necessities, you show yourself that there
is more to entertainment and comfort in life, that seeking material wealth all the time,
Is a waste of time and the precious gift of life which God has bestowed upon us to live
for His glory and not our own. Gods will is indeed inedible. Nothing we can do will
prevent what He has in store for us in this life and the next. When we do follow Gods will
and obey Him, much joy and peace will pursue those who follow Christ. Blessings abound in
the righteous living of the one who obeys and hears God.



Hudson Taylor was a calm, peaceful man, who learned many things about God and became
closer to Him through self-sacrifice and dedication to God in all aspects of his life.
Hudson trained himself to live on just the necessities, and nothing more in order that he
depend upon God for everything and even his very meal everyday. He lived in a most humble
and poor conditions to show his dependence upon God in every day life and activity. He was
obedient and listened to the call of God. He was described as many of the fruits of the
Spirit that God shows in the Word. Sacrifice became a daily thing for Hudson, as God
molded and shaped Hudson for His will.



Hudson Taylor was just that sort of man, one who you could call a saint. He would go where
no one would want to go. And do what no one would want to do. He willed to do Gods will,
and that was to go to china and spread the good news of salvation to all the lost and
hurting people in china. He was to a fairly financially stable family. Except he was not
saved yet when he was just a lad. Yet his mother prayed earnestly for a long time for the
salvation of her only son. The prayer was answered by God, when Hudson accidentally picked
up a Christian brochure and read of the saving love of Jesus and Christ and what Christ
did on the Cross of calvary, along time ago for the sins of Hudson and all of humanity.
Hudson then felt the call and desire to go to china to be a light for Christ. While Hudson
saved and lived as poorly as possible in order to save as much as possible. Hudson worked
in the medical field gaining knowledge that would someday be very useful in China. Upon
work He became ill with a fatal fever, which through prayer and meditation and the good
medical uses, was restored to full health after a time period. During the time period
Hudson saved his money he dealt with the issue of fully relying on and trusting God for
everything. Hudson then proceeded to China and was a witness and testimony to all for
Christ glory feeding the God starved people in need of Christ love in the war and poverty
stricken country. Hudson was an example of what the missionary should be today. Hudson
showed that giving your all to God brought rewards to those who obeyed Him. Hudson

Elie Faures statement summarizes best what critics, art researchers and collectors havent had the space, the heart or the inspiration to say in their restless attempts to present English Art. WHY?

    Development of Peace Idea THE HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT OF THE PEACE IDEA 1 PEACE is not only a fundamental doctrine of Christianity; it is equally a fundamental doctrine of humanity in its essential constitution. Hence peace, both as an idea and as a social attainment, has had a natural historic development, in which other forces than Christian teaching, or any other religious teaching, technically such, have played a powerful and incessant part. These natural forces began to act earlier, perhaps, t

Before that the only method of recording was the runic script. These mysterious symbols, incised on stone, were believed to have been created by Odin…” (C
