Bayne held the deep conviction that God created all and loved all that He created. Narrow nationalism, party rigidities, racial bigotry, and sex discrimination therefore stood condemned in the vision of God. In the style of the ancient prophets, Bayne spoke out against those tendencies in the Church and in contemporary society that fell short of this understanding of Gods all-embracing love.
