OUR REGULAR SUNDAY SERMOI1
A Brilliant Discourse By the Rev. A.
H. C. Morris.
Brookilyn, N. Y.-Sundayh nior;nin:g. in
Stromt- Place Baptist ChLch. the pas
tor. the Rev. A. H1. C. Morse, had :s
his snbject. "Powerful Promises." The
text was from II Peter 1:4: "Whereby
are given unto us exceeding great and
precious promises; that by these we
might be partakers of the divine na
ture. having escaped the corruption
which is inl the world through lust."
Mr. Morse said:
At any rate the Bible is frank. It
says the plainest things about man's
sin. But it also holds before him a
wonderful hope. To-day he is mired in
corruption. To-morrow lie may have
escaped from this and become like
God. The whole gol is fcr-nd in
these few words.
We have here a statement of the fact
of sin and its origin. The fact is "cor
ruption" and the origin "through lust."
I know that there are woridly-wisc
men who sneer at the third chapter of
Genesis. But this I have noticed. that
they are uniformly unable to give us a
simpler solution of the mystery of evil.
Somewhere and at some time the race
must have sinnled. The stream of life
has been poisoned. and this must have
taken place at its fountain head. fot
we cannot tind any divisions which do
not have the entire characteristics of
tI' whole. The Bible says the event
took place ill the first man, before a
siingle son was born. and he lusted af
ter somethiig which was forbidden to
him, and that by his disobedience he
fel! from a primal innocency. and
lurched the race, aid entailed a condi
tion of corruption. And that we have
aggravated this calamity by repeating
sin and deepening the ruin.
But I am not so much concerned to
day about the origin of the condition.
We can leave that with a single word.
But there are certain facts that cannot
be brushed aside. A mai may ques
tion the story as it is written in Scrip
ture, but lie cannot deny.' it. for it does
not come within the region of' denial.
Neither can lie deny the story as it is
reproduced in life to-day. Have you
never plucked forbiddeni fruit? Have
you never lusted for pleasure which
has been distinctly forbidden? And as
a consequence of transgression, have
you never experienced a repulsive sick
ness and an intolerabie loathing, so
that you have known what is the
ineaning of this phrase,. "the corrup
tion which is in the world through
lust'" Do you not know anythin; at
all of the lashings of remorse?
Let me ask you another question.
How does it happen tlat the heart is
so constantly "running down?" Why
must it be repeatedly wound up and
fastened with ratchets? Why do we
have to make and renew resolves, and
lash the will to the "sticking place?"
Why is it that a man never backslides
into holiness? Why cannot we take ofT
the brakes and find ourselves gliding
into the highest moral living? Every
thing, we are told. tends to move in
the line of least resistance. Do we
find that we are drifting toward char
ity and holiness and benevolence and
virtue? Nay, but to all of us these
graces are the fruit of serious toil.
I'hey are magnificent possessions, more
)lrecious than gold and sparkling gems-,
but they are gotten only by struggle
ind privation and self-denial. And
that word "'self-denial" contains a fos
sil history of primal sin. It tells us of
in evf: s'elf that must he constantly de
aied, because its desires are wrong.
But whence this evii self, and whence
these wrong desires?
But let us come a little closer to this
subject. Let me hint at the things that
we cannot spread before the public,
our secret thoughts and faults which
are hidden. The thoughts that creep
into the heart and nestle there. Can
you tell me whence they come? Tell
ne. for instance, whence cerme the envy
mud jealousy and malice and evil de
sire, and the lust for gold that nmakes
the thief, and the thirst for llood
which crimsons the hand of murder?
Do you not think these things arise in
buman life as malaria and pestilence
from a death-dealing bog? Do they
aot bespeak what this Scripture calls
a "corruption which is in the world
throuah lust?' I suppose that the an
~els before the throne of God would
shirk from hiav.ing their thoughts pro
elaimied with the trumpet of Gabriel.
[ know that Jesus has torn open His
heart and flung out a challenge which
10 man can accept. "Which of you
:onvinceth Me of sin?" said IHe. But
we cannot do that. We hide our
thoughts and cover' our faults with a
crimson blush. antd walk amng our
nearest friends wvith a coward's step.
But what has befallen man? If God
madle him innocent-and nobody ques
tions this-something must have hap
pened~ to corrupt his thougihts atnd
make them so black that he stands in
'read of the day for w-hich till other
lays wecre made, when this hidden his
tory shall be revealed.
There is something pathetic in mnan's
attenmpts to assert his worth. We
speak. for instance, of the ".Majesty of
-onscmiece" and the "Dignmity of hu
man nature," and ot the "FIathierhood
>f God." and the "Brotherhood of
mian" as if these terms were true and
meaningful. Take the first of these
ind see what comfort there is in it.

rou not know that conscience alost

But there is more in this scripture
h~an a1: s taitemenit of the fact of sin.
Ier'e are also "these great and pre
ions proises 1i~ wherecby we muy~ be
om -rtatkers of the divine n~atture."

everyv man.il by th~e ::ace of God, to
take on also the divine nature, to be

That is what is said in the word be
tore us. And this is done by a single
act. Man fell, we are told, by reach
ig after the divine attributes. "Ye
shall be as God" was the lying promise
>f the tempter, and by listening te that

But now God returns to us with the

but that it is endowed with an immor
tal nature. It is receiveLd the instant
he believes. as by a new birth, and has
passed from death unto life. He hath
been already delivered from the bond
age and corruption of the kingdom of
darkness and has been colonized in tie
kingdom of His Son. He is born of
God, a son of the Most High. a citizen
of heaven. A single sin has stained
the race. We laid hold oii death and
spite of tears and cries and struggle.
we have not been able to loose the
hand. One single act of faith takes
hold on eternal life, and in spite of
sins and falls and failure tLat prize
can never be wrested from our grasp.
And this is all by faith.
Men have said to me that the scheme
of salvation is arbitrary. It is vain,
they say, to shut the world up to faith.
But, my friend, do you not know that
this entire universe isarbitrary? There
is nothing more arbitrary than the laws
of mathematics, or of health or of
gravitation. It is not strange that
every son of Adam is shut up to the
multiplication table? Is it not strrnge
that if a man wants to compute num
bers in China he must use the identical
system that we use? That three and
two make five there as they do here?
No. there is but one law for light or
heat or electricity or numbers. or grav
itation in all the earth. And there is
I but one way of salvation for all the
earth. Here it is said "through these
promises." which only means that a
man believes in Christ. A promi-e is
nothing except for the value of the
person who makes it. Some men may
make their promises, and no man grives
them heed. But if one promises whose
character you know. then you count on
them as you count upon the shining of
We hear a good deal in these days
about education into the kingdom of
God. about the natural development of
righteousness. But development is
only unfolding, and that the race has
been doing in all the centuries, and
each age surpasses the last in the
enormity of sin. Education is drawing
out, but how can you draw holiness
from a heart that is "deceitful above
all things and desperately wickedf"
Education can never do the work. It
is like putting a new handle on the
pump and leaving the dog in the well.
You may wonder at the fancy of
bringing in a new and supernatural
life by belief in precious promises.
But all questions are answered by the
experiences of history. Great men have
been regenerated by single words of
Scripture. This was true of Augustine
and Luther and Spurgeon and scores
of others whom time fails me to men
tion. They were not only new men,
but mighty sons of God. Wonderful
was this? As great as the wcnder of
all forms of life. Look into tte acorn
and tear its halves apart, and tell iLe
if you can see therein the stalwart oak.
Analyze the seed of wheat and tell me
if you can see therein the waving fields
of grain. "Well," said Jesus, "the
words which I speak unto you they are
spirit and they are life." You cannot
see the spirit, you cannot see the life.
but can you say they are not there? I
hold up to you these great and precious
promises. and there are saints and mis
sionaries and noble lives and giant
charities and mighty revolutions there.
There are heaven and an eternal
weight of glory wrapped up in that.
And our growth in grace and the like
ness of God is not a process of mend
ing and improvement. But it is a new
creation by which we become like God.
And now I have finished. I know I
have borne down hard on sin. I wish
I did not havd to do so. I wish
with you that the word were not in the
language because it was not in the
heart. If one of those phantom friends
of the astronomers should come to this
earh and say to me "I understand this
is a beautiful place, but for one thing.
I understand it is filled with sin and
rebellion against the rule of God." I
wish I could say to him, "M1y friend,
you have been misinformed. There is
no sin.'' But I tell you frankly. I could
not say that to him. I would have to
sayr to him: "Alas' 'tis true. 'tis pity.
nn pity 'tis. 'tis true." But I could
also say to him that sin cannot bold usI
in :ts cruel grasp. I would point him
onder, and say, "Do you see that gol
den snlendlor? That is the gospel of
.esus.' It is filled with sweetness, and
by that we are restored and have be
come partakers of the divine nature."
And isn't that more than the fact of
God's promises are ever on the as
cending scale. One leads up to anoth
er fuller and more blessed than itself.
In Mesopotamia God said: "I will show
thee the land.'' In Canaan: "I will
gi'e thee all the land, and children in
numerable as the grains of sand.''
It is thus that God allures us, to
saintliness. Not giving us anything
till we have dared to act, that He maiy
test us. Not giving everything at first,

Subject: Jeremiah in the Dungeon. Jer.
.xxvill., 1-13-Golden Text, MIatt. v.,P
10-Memory Verses, 8-10-Commen
tary on the Day's Lesson.
I. Jeremiah's enemies (vs. 14). 1.
"Then." After the events referred to
in chapter 37. where Jeremiah was de
livered from the dungeon. "Shepha
tiah," etc. Some of Jeremiah's enemies
who were seeking his life. "All the
people." They'had free access to him
in the court of the prison. 2. "Life for
a prey." A proverbial expression. To
make one's escape with life like a valu
able spoil or prey that one carries off;
the narrowness of the escape, and the
joy felt at it are included in the idea.
He shall car- off his life as his gain,
saved by hi. going over to the Chal
deans. Had Jeremiah not had a divine
commission he might justly have been
accused of treason, but having one
which made the result of the siege cer
tain he acted humanely as interpreter
of God's will under the theocracy in.
advising surrerder. 3. "Surely be
given." This was a testimony that he
constantly bore; he had the authority
of God for it. He knew it was true
and he never wf.vered or equivocated.
4. "The princes said." Their reasons
were plain enough, but the proof was
wanting. "Seeketh . . . the hurt." An
unjust insinuation, for no man had
done more for this people than had
Jeremiah. His preaching wes calcu
lated to arouse them to a sense of their
sins and cause them to tu'rn to God-.
One of the commonest *ays of injuring
others is -:o misunderstand and misin
terpret their motives, as Jeremiah's
motives were maligned because It was
possible for him to have done what he
did with bad mdtives. When there are
two possible motives for the conduct
of another. it is not only a more char
itable, but probably a moi'e truthful
judgment to impute the better motives.
"Judge not that ye be not judged,"
should be written in capital letters,
yea. in flaming letters, before us all.
II. Jeremiah in the dungeon (vs. 5,
6). 5. "King is iot he." Zedekiah was
a weak king. He had a conviction that
Jeremiah was a phophet of the Lord,
and yet he dared not oppose his states
men, but yielded to their will without
a question. All innocent man was thus
sacrificed to their malice. These
princes were wroth with Jeremiah
(chapter 37: 15); "he had compared
them to rotten figs" (chapter 24). But
for him they would have had affairs
all their own way, they were anxious
to be rid of him.
6. "Then took they Jeremiah." Jere
miah was the butt of ridicule and
scorn. He was put in the stocks, was
publicly whipped, was misrepresented
as an enemy, was imprisoned several
times. but he kept right on. "The dun
geon." Literally "the cistern." It was
not a subterranean prison as that in
Jonathan's house (chapter 37: 151, but
a pit or cistern, which had been full of
water, but was emptied of it during
the siege so that only mire remained.
Such empty cisters were often used as
prisons. (Zach. 9: 11); the depth forbade
hope of escape. "Sunk in the mire."
They evidently egpected that he would
die in that place.
'III. ~ .eremiah's friend (vs. T-9). 7.
"Ebedmelech." The servant of the
king. He probably was keeper of the
royal harem, and so had private ac
cess to the king. Already even at this
early time, God wished to show what
good reason there 4as for calling the
Gentiles to salvation. An Ethiopian
stanger saves the prophet whom his
own countrymen, the Jewvs, tried to
destroy. So the Gentiles believed in
Christ whom the Jews crucified, and
Ethiopians were among the earliest
converts (Acts 2: 10; S: 27-39). "Sitting
in the gate." y'he gates of cities were
the places where justice was admin
istered. S "Went forth." The servant
went immediately to the kdng. There
was no time to lose, for if he delayed
the prophet might perish. What a
beld, courageous act this was. It ought
to put many ou us to shame.
9. "These ien," etc. He must have
been in the 'king's confidence or he
would not have dared raise his voice
against the action of the princes. The
Lord can raise up friends for His peo
ple where they are least expected. "No
more bread." That is, no more bread1
left of the public store in the city
(chapter 37: 21); or, all but no bread
left anywhere. This shows to what
straits the city was reduced.
IV. Jeremiiah rescued (vs. 10-13). 10.
"Kimg commanded." Zedekiah's better
nature was stirred. "Thirty men." Not
merely to draw up Jeremiah, but to
guard Ebed-melech if the princes
should oppose him. The king was de
te'mined that he should be rescued by
force if necessary. Ebed-melech was
rewarded for his faith, love and cour
age, exhibited at a time when he might
well fear the wrath of the princes.
1113. Ebed-melechl took the men as
the king had conmmiande d and rescued
Jeremiah. Hie let down into the pit
sonc torn clothes and worn out gar
ments and instructed Jeremiah to roll
them around the ropes and place them
under his armpits. so as not to suffer
injury from the ropes when he was
dlaw'n up. Although Jeremiah was
thus rescued from a terrible death. be
was not set at libe'rty, but remined fu
the court of tihe prison. He was still
in prison when the armies of Babylon
took Jerusalem. He was found in
c'hains and carried with other captives
on the way to Babylon. but was re
lesed at Ramah, six miles from Jeru
salem. Thus ended the prison life of
the prophet. How long he was in
prison it is difficult to determine, prob
ably for ycars. The Lamentations

the mission fields, and especially in
the schools. where they have been in
deed "teachers of good things."
Mission Notes Concerning Women.
A Christian woman went to work in
a negro settlement in the Indian Ter
ritory appropriately named Sodom, so
vile was it. In less than a year the
men had built a school house and
church, and now the place is called
appropriately, "Pleasant Grove."
In heathen lands the suffering
caused women by the ignorance and
superstition of the native doctors is
unequalled among the world's tor
tures, and the woman medical mis
sionary winds the endless gratitude of
the women whom she frees from these
Dr. Clara Swain was the first wo
man medical missionary. She went
to North India in January. 1S70.
When the medical missionary at
tended in her severe illness the wife
of the Chins prime minister, Li Hung
Chanz. the great man's influence was
won for missions.
A mission school-teacher in a Mor
mon village was tormented by a rab
ble of boys, who stoned the school
house and tried to drive her out of
town; but one day she called in the
leader and got him to help her to put
up a fallen stove pipe, so winning him
that he became one of the most suc
cessful pastors in Utah.
A mission teacher in New Mexico
was thwarted at every turn by a Ca
tholic priest, but she ministered to
the sick during a terrible scourge of
diphtheria and smallpox, and after
wards all doors were open to her.

Womens Work for M;ssions.-Marl:
14. :-9; Acts 9. 0G; Rom. 16. 1, 2.
The woman who anointed Jesus;
the patron saint of all Ladies' Aid
So3ieties, Dorcas; and Phebe, the
"succorer of many," furnish us our
lesson basis. These all were nobie
women who poured forth their love
to Christ in help to o'hers. They arC
worthy types cf those noble bands of
Christian women who in our day have'
banded th'emselv'es together to carry
the gnspel to the neglectedi and se
'luded women of heathen lands. It
has crystallized itself into the Wo
man's Foreign and the Woman's
Home Missionary Societies.
Ninety days after the organization
of our Parent Missionary Society in
119 a "'Woman's Auxiliary" was or
ganized in New York by Dr. Nathan
Bangs and others. An address was
issued to the "Female Members of the
Methodist Episcopal Chuirch." But in
time the society bec'ame almost inac
tive an'i crowded out by the organi
zation of other societies. it has been
estimated, however, that they con
tributed at least $20,000 to the Parent
Soiety. Wnen the China Mission was
p~lantecl in 1S47 a society of women in
Ealtimore was organized as the "La-I
dies' China 31issionary Society." For1
some twenty years this did a noble
work. It grented $5,000' for a "Female
Academy" in Foochow, and gave for
ten years $300 per year to the ParentI
Socity. The Union Woman's Mis
sionary Society was or;;anized in New
York in 1SG0, and many of our chureal
women were active in it until the or'
ganization ot' our own Woman's Fo
reign 31issionary Society.
The organization of this society wvas
effecte'd in Boston in 1lG9 by a few
elect ladies, some of whom are still
living. They rapidlly grew in numbers
and in favor with the church. TheI
present work of the society is import
ant and growing rapidly. Their in-I
coec is about $5i0.000 a year. Th'ey
supprt m-issionarics in all our foreignI

under their direction. Some 6,000J
auxiliaries at home vwith nearly 150.
(000 members insure a still larger ad
vance in the future. Twventy-five
thousand copies of the Woman's Mis
sionary Friend go into the nomes of
our people. In common with other,

they are taking a systematic study of
missions from text-books prepared for
the purpose. This society is only one

"Cigarettes and conversation, and
ragtime dancing on ledgers," said
Captain Robert Quinton, of the light
ship Blunt's Reef, which recently
completed a unique voyage of fifteen
thousand miles from New York to
San Francisco, "constitute the chief

when they wish to do that trick, why,
th-e letter or other document is put
