REV. L E. LOWERY'S
Tho following lu an editorial writ
Icu for The Watchman aud Defender
liut us Professor Gregory delivered hit
lecture two or three times in Colum
bia, and In us many different p-luces
I thought that it would be well to rc
produce it in The Indicator for thc
benefit of its readers.
The Bahai Movement.
On the Hf LU Sunday in January the
editor worshipped at the Sydney Park
C. M. E. Church in Columbiu by a
special invitation ol thu pastor, Kev.
ti. b\ Hayguod, D. D. Arriving at the
church beioro the hour tor beginning
the services, we were usked to take
a beut in Hie pulpit, which ww did.
While sitting lhere luciug the congre
gation ,aud watching the people as they
entered the temple ol worship, we no
ticed one of the ushers us he con
ducted a stranger to a trout seat. The
stranger was a mau, aud he was not
pi'k'i/oscbsiug m his appearance. He
looked ordinary, lie sui quietly und
listuued to a good sermon. Ile had
previously arranged with the pastor
tu denver a tree lecture iu Syduty
Park Church at 4 o'clock p. m., aud
at the close of the sermon. Pastor
liuyguod introduced lue stranger us
rrot'. Luuis G. Gregory o? Washing
ton, D. C., and requested him to speak
of his lecture. Then Prof. Gregory
arusu, und, m a good, clear voice, he
stated that at 4 o'clock he would dis
cuss the principles of "The JLkihul
Movement," aud iuvited everybody in
Columbiu to come out, and hear him.
But when we heard Dr. Haygood
say that "Professor Gregory of Wash
ington, D. C., will say a word," then
oar treacherous memory by associa
tion recalled the fact that about' 15
years ago, when we wero stationed at
Old Bethel in Charleston, a man by
that same name came to that city,
and delivered several lectures on the
bahai Religion in some of the churches
and halls. At that time there was a
brilliant young lawyer in Charleston
who was a member of Uki Bethel. His
parents before him were members of
this church. This young lawyer was
christened in this church and grew
up in the Sunday School, became a
v.:em ber and a trustee of the church.
This young lawyer took hold of this
new religion, and iri^d to master lt.
We heard him deliver an address in
014 Bethel at a platform service OH
a Sabbath night, and his subject was
'Love." And this is the principle doc
trine of the Bahai religion. His ad
dn&?s was beautiful and eloquent, and
impressive. And this young lawyer
continued to wrestle with this Bahai
religion, trying to master it, until he
completely lost his mind, and had to
be brought to the insane asylum here
But what is "The Bahai Movement
or Religion?" We heard Professor
Gr?gory at Sydney Park on the ?fth
Sunday afternoon in Columbia, and
can truly say Cur him that he was
really eloquent and forceful. He held
the close attention of his audience for
more than an hour. And these are
the principles of his religion as he
"The Search for Truth; The One
ness of Humanity; the Unity of Re
ligions; Religion und Science Agree;
Equality of Men and Women; Aban
donment of Prejudice; A Universal
Language; Universal Education; Uni
versal Peace; An International Tribu
nal; Solution of the Economic Prob
lem; The Power of tho Holy Spirit."
The principles seem to be all right',
but the Lord Jesus Christ is not recog
nized in them, and any religion that
has no Christ in it, is not worthy of
the attention of intelligent Christian
people. And any attempt to teach,
enforce and build up u religion with
out Christ will be an utter failure.
The Bahai religion teaches love, but
it is not the love that Christ taught.
It is not the love that the Apostles
taught, lt is not the love that is pro
mulgated by Christianity. It seems to
us to be a head religion, and not a
heart religion. Nicodemus, a ruler
of the Jews, was a man who belived j
in, and taught the Bahai religion, but
Christ told him that he must be born
again. And no man can love God and 1
his neighbor without being converted. ?
But another word concerning the
young lawyer who was brought to the
asylum. After he was brought here
his parents wrote us to visit him as
often as possible ,and we did so. The
first time we called to see him he
held in his hand a little pamphlet,
and we asked him for it. He readily
gave lt to us, and when we examined
It, wo found it to be a book on the
bahai religion. We took it from him
and brought it home, knowing that it
was this that caused him to lose his
ufynd. He eventually died 'in th/e i
asylum, and we took his body home
to Charleston, assisted at the funeral,
and followed him to the grave. But
while this young man embraced the
Bahai religion, he never left his
church, and his body was taken back
to the church of hiB parents and to the
church of his childhood, and from
this church he was buried. This is
?what the Bahai religion did for a bril
Han young lawyer.
