Having published a synopsis of
Mr. Garvin's sormon on Thooso
phy, in' the Ohristinn church,-tho
Bulletin aBkod Mr. Hnynu for n
similar roport of his lecture in
roply. Ho has furnished us with
tho wholo lecturo, hut it would
tnko too much n spneo. After Mr.
Hnyno hud recited tho familiar
argumonts against tho Old Testa
ment as a guido of oithor faith or
practice, and denied credit to tho
American missionaries to Hawaii
for either great sacrifice or good
achievements, Mr. Uayno closed
with the following general re
marks: Now I havo given you brother
Garvin's thought as to what con
stitutes tho mission of his church,
tho plan of his God; lot mo give
you tho real God's plan. 1 shall
not go outside of tho words of one
of tho most thoughtful, most con
servative and moht eloquent
divines of tho Congregational
church tho dominant church in
Hawaii. 1 quote from llov.
Georgo D. Herron's "A Plea for
tho Gospel:" We point to our
beautiful and costly temples of
worship, to tho crossos crowning
tho village hill tops, and tho
crosses tho church spires lift
above the city's smoke and Btrifo.
Wo count our great missionary
benefactions, and hold mammoth
religious conventions. "Wo are
perfecting and unifying our great
ecclesiastical organizations, anu
loriniug now societies, and ap
pointing countless committees
Wo hnvo revised creeds, and nro
grossivo theologies and reuowned
preachers. But all tho whilo
tho church is getting farther and
farther away from the lotft sheop
it was sent to Bavo. Tho cove
tousness that fattens on the ilosh
of toiling boys and girls; tho
groou in tit wrecks the hopes and
iortunesoL less cunning rivals;
the fushiou whoso fatuous arro
gance fans the flame of judgment
that is kindling in the skies; tho
luxury that is content to enjoy,
while mon with darl: thoughts beg
ror woru, ana hopeless women
slave in sweaters' dens, and tho
life withers out of starved babes;
fill those 8milo and bow and pray
in church, wliilo tho groat, sad,
suspicious world impatiently waits
to see whether God be living or
dead. This is not Christianity.
This is not according to tho gos
pol of Jesus Christ. Much of
what wo call Christianity is no
less than an aristocratic and
shameless pauperism, thriving on
the wealth of sacrifice in
herited from tho past; rest
ing in high priced pews and
iasnionnuio resiliences; cun
ningly squeezing a luxurious
living out ol humanity, and super
ciliously labelling as charity tho
appeals made to serve tho human
ity that supports it. It is the
victorious forces of time tho
church worships prudence,
thrift, respectability, reputation,
culture-while it is practically
infidel to tho Christian gospel."
Now, brothers and sisters, 1
thank the, great all-mind, that the
fruits which brother Garvin has
pointed out aro neither tho pro
duct of Christianity nor Thooso
phy. They aro purely aud simply
tho harvest gathered from tho
sowing of sinful, vicious, and de
praved thoughts in fields of awful
t The greed of gain, and the lusts
of tho world.' Theosophy haa.no
Btrifo with tho words of 'Christ,
"peace on earth, good will to mon."
TheoBophy invites no mnn to
cease td follow tho toaohings of
any man who speaks tho words of
wisdom. Theosophy would point
out tho way whereby ono can find
"man's rightful place in tho
schenio of tho universe" It says
to all, livo clean livos, forgot solf,
barken to tho cry of tho forsaken
and tho down-trodden. Can vou
not do those things and yot bo a
Christian? Theosophy teaches
that you can.
"Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common, bush afiro
But only ho who sees takes off
Theosophy takes off men's
shoes. And, planting his feet on
tho Bure foundation that man, tho
self, oven on tho present plane, is
soul, nnd soul only, many things
are brought near and made dis
tinct that have beoii dim and
distant. Theosophy aims-to fur

on a practical as well as a theoro-

tical basiB from a standpoint
that cannot shift. It renders
suporJluouH the tonus "superna
tural," "doath," and even "supor
uo'r'malj" and eulargonthnuAtilrtll,
life,, and normal beyond all lini'l
tatious. It reudora the -human
souse of life spiritual rathor than
malorial. It 'aims to lift man
tibovo any earthly gravitation that
is burdensome and onslaving. It
unfolds a coiisciouHu-tf in him
that he is a living soul and not
merely an animated physical
orgnuisin. It discovers him as
made in tho 'imaRo of God;"
because a spirit, which,
though finito ju its range, is the
natural oiTtipring of tho Universal
Spirit. It makes religion not
dogma, which i inito another
thing not milv spiritual, but
natural and soinntiik'. It lifts or
der, law. and inter-relationship
from their malorial limitations, so
that the whole of God's realm bo
comes unified and systematic,
rather thau chaotic and capricious.
It iutorproto "death" as only a
falso seuso of life. It restores to
man tho soul, the consciousness
of his primal independence and
diviuo sonship. It lifts him from
tho animal piano and bids him
regard hid body as his temporary
and usoful servant, instead of his'
hard and tyraunical master. It
discloses tho divine in man as tho
real man, or in other words, re
stores man to himself. It lecon
ciles and brings together two tra
ditional antagonists, Science and
Religion, which havo so long boon
separate and frowned upon each
other. It opens to viow truth as
an harmonious unit, and changes
general discord into harmony,oven
though all its vibrations may not
yot bo understood. Says theoso
phy, "We uro souls having bodies,
and not bodies having souls."
In conclusion letmosay.friondB
all, that "as a man thinketh in his
heart so is ho." Theosophy
teaches us to build thought realms
with ideals of harmony, health,
soundness nnd sanity. If at pre
sent the body is not expressing
such conditions, the inner perfect
renlity must bo firmly hold until,
nt length, it is projected into out
ward expression. Thoosophy tolls
mnn to stop nnd think. Did you
ever try to do this, my friends ?
Did you over sit down, quite alone,
and fold your arras und try to
"That perfect silenoo whore tho
lins and henrfc
Aro still, and wo no longor enter
Our own imperfect thoughts and
But God alone speaks to us."
i.ry it, try it ovory day and you
win oecome a student of theoso
phy. Fiunlly, ladies and gontlomon,
with my good night! as I see it,
theosophy teaches that in tho
great circle of creative develop
ment, tho divino life nnd onorgy
which God first involved into tho
lowest conditions, will como nt
length, through a series of grand
stops, to be gathered, organized,
individuated, and evolved into
"sons of God," in which form,
with reciprocal affection, they will
return to the "Father's House."
Tho real thoosophist divines how
to "hitch his wagon to n star,"
nnd Uiub paves his onwnrd path,
and accelerates his onward pro-'
gress God-ward. And this is his
prayer and his belief:
