Later called “Moral Re-Armament,” the movement was instituted by Frank Buchman* as a moral and spiritual force to transform men and societies. The founder promoted spiritual conversion through the techniques of confession, surrender, guidance, and sharing. These techniques lead to the four absolute standards of life: absolute purity, absolute unselfishness, absolute honesty, and absolute love. The application of these principles through the Moral Re-Armament movement has brought Buchman decorations from France, Germany, Greece, Japan, the Republic of China, the Philippines, Thailand, and Iran for outstanding services rendered. Prime Minister Holyoake of [[New Zealand]] said, “He has done as much as any man of our time to unite the peoples of the world by cutting through the prejudices of color, class, and creed.”
