W TKe old idea, too, of a phys!.al hell
as the eternal abode of unrepentant
sinners has given place to the teach
ing of Universalism that all life, both
here and hereafter is one-that it is
a great school-that opporotunity for
repentance and salvation never ends.
but that God will discipline each soul
with His tireless love, until all souls
'know and obey ;Him. All these
changes have been toward that broad
er religion known as Universalism
"that Universalism which means har
mony-nnan at harmony with himself,
at harmony with his leighbor, at har
mony with his God." "That jn'ver
salism which teaches also that Jesus
is the great Harmonizer, that He
caie to reconcile man to his duty, to
deal:ng unselfishly with his biother,
to bonor and obey his God."
What other religious conception
can point to so many changes in the
olO-established ideas of God and re
lig!on, and can say these are the
changes; these evolutionary changes
toward the light and truths that have
been brought by our maintenance of
the principles of our church? But
people tell us: "Oh, you Univer
salists cannot progress, because the
other denominations have ceased to
preach hell fire and endless torment:
they have stolen your thunder. Al
though their creeds recognize the old
ideas, yet they now preach a theology
which is. practically Universalism, but
under another name." What does the
argument amount to? Universaliim
has brought about the change from
the old theology of hell to the new
theology of Cod's love, and other
-chu'ches have seen the light and
have modified their preaching. But
we maintain that this is no reason
'why Universalists should cease to
-preach God's endless love. If others
preach it, how much more should wo,
the original supporters of the faith,
-peek by our works to maintain and
soread abroad the good tidings of joy
But for a -fully successful develon
tnent we must have withlif us, within
each individual member of our fam
Aly, a strong spiritual life. We must
meditate upon and consider well that
conception of God as our Father, our
universal Father, who watches over
us to lead and guide, even as did our
eathly parents in our weak and help
loss infancy. Then shall we be able
to think of God sas He truly is-reach
