Excerpt: "The subject of footwashing is one of these non-vital questions having the fullest right of investigation and exposition. No individual or body has the right to hold it as a standard of doctrine or in a party spirit forbidding discussion, or in any way as affecting Christian fellowship. There is no need of becoming contentious over it. Barring possible errors of detail the writer has the utmost confidence in this exposition; but the attitude taken is not condemnatory, is in no way disruptive of Christian fellowship but is open and receptive toward any interpretation that can be shown by the Scripture to be a better one."
