About this Quote

This quote by Alfred A. Montapert speaks to the idea that humans are naturally wild and untamed. This is why, according to Montapert, we require the Christian mentor. He thinks that the Christian mentor supplies us with a moral compass and a sense of purpose. It assists us to understand our place on the planet and how to live in consistency with others. The Christian mentor likewise offers us with a sense of hope and a belief in something higher than ourselves. Montapert thinks that without the Christian mentor, people would be delegated their own devices and would be unable to control their wild and untamed nature. He believes that the Christian teaching is essential in assisting us to become better individuals and to live a life of function and meaning.
