REV? L EL LOWERY'S
The following ls an editorial writ
ten for The Watchman and Defender.
But aa Professor Gregory delivered hie
lecture two or three times in Colum
bia, and in as many different placee,
I thought that it would be well to re
produce it in The Indicator tor the
benefit ot ita readers.
The Bahai Movement.
On the fifth Sunday in January the
editor worshipped at the Sydney Park
C. M. E. Church in Columbia by a
special invitation of tho pastor, ROT.
N. P. Haygood, D. D. Arriving at the
church belora the hour for beginning
the services, we were asked to take
a seat in the pulpit, which we did.
While sitting there lacing the congre
gation ,aud watching the people as they
entered the temple ot worship, we no
ticed one of the ushers as he con
ducted a stranger to a iront seat. The
stranger was a man, uud he was not
preprocessing in his appearance. lie
'looked ordinary. He sat quietly and !
?'listened lo a good sermon. He had
previously arranged with the pastor
to deliver a free lecture in Sydney,
'Park Church at 4 o'clock p. m., and
at the close of the sermon, Pastor
Haygood introduced the stranger as
Prof. Louis G. Qregory of Washing
ton, D. C., and requested him to speak
bf . his lecture. Then Prof. Qregory
arose, and, in a good, clear voice, he
Stated that at 4 o'clock he would dis
cuss the principles of -"The Bahai
Movement," and invited everybody in
Columbia to come out, and hear him.
.But .'when'we "li ea rd Dr. Haygood
say that "Professor Gregory of Wash
ington, D. C., will say a word," then
(fdr treacherous memory by associa
tion recalled the fact that about' 15
years ago, when we were stationed at
Old Bethel in. Charleston, a man by
that same name came to that city,
and delivered several lectures on the
?aliai Religion in some of the churches
and halla. Af that time there was a
brilliant young lawyer in Charleston
who was a member of > Old Bethel. His
parents before him were members of
this church. This youug lawyer was
christened in this church and grew
up in the Sunday School, became a
member and a trustee ol the church.
This y crang lawyer took hold of this
new religion, and triQd to master it.
We heard him deliver an a.ddr csa in
U# Bethel at a platform- service Oil -
a Sabbath night, and his subject waa
'Love." And this is the principle doc
trine of the Bahai religion. His ad
dams was.beautiful and eloquent, and
impressive. And this young lawyer
continued to wrestle with this Bahai
revlon, trying to master it, until he
:o$pl3tely lost his mind, and had to
je brought to the insane asylum here '
in Columbia.. tZ
But what is "The Bahai Movement 1
wr Religion?" We heard Professor 1
ir?gory at Sydney Park on the fifth
Sunday; afternoon in Columbia, and
:an truly' say for him that he was
really eloquent and'forceful. He held,
he'close attention of his audience for <
nore than an hour. And these are :
hb> principles of his religion as he '
augh t them :
TThe Search for Truth; The One- 1
less- ol Humanity; the Unity of Be
lgiens; Religi?n and Science Agree;
Dquality of Men and Women; Aban
lonment of Prejudice; A Universal I
.language; Universal Education; Uni
?rsal Peace; An International Tribu- 1
lal; Solution of the Economic Probl
em; The' Power of the Holy Spirit."
The principles seem to be all right',
mt the- Lord Jesus Christ is not recog
tized in them, and any religion that
tali no Christ in it, is not worthy of
he attention of intelligent Christian (
)copie. ? And any attempt to teach, \
ni orce and build up a religion with- !
?ut Christ will be ca utter failure. 1
:ho Bahai religion teaches love, but
t' ls. not the love that Christ taught. ?
t is: not the love that the Apostles j
aught. It is not the love that is pro- <
tailgated by Christianity. It seems to <
ls to be a head religion, and not a \
ieart religion. Nicodemus, a ruler ' J
if tho Jews, was a'man who belived ?
n; and taught the Bahai religion, but *
Christ told him that he must be born
gain. ' And no man can love God and
tis neighbor without' being converted.
.But . another word concerning the
:oung lawyer who. was brought to the
laylum. After he was brought here
ils par on tn wrote us to visit him os
>fton as possible ,and we did so. The
lrat time we called to . see him he ?
leid in his hand a little pamphlet, !.
ind we asked him for it. He readily 1
lavo it to us, and- when we examined.,
t, wo found it to be a book on the
lanai religion. We took it from him
md brought it home, cowing that it !
vas this that caused him to lose his !
i$ind. -Ho eventually died 'In tty* |
isylum, and we took his body home'
o Charleston, assisted at the funeral, ;
ind followed him to the grave. Bat.
vhile this young man embraced th* j
Bahai religion, he never left his
hurch, and his body was taken back
o the church of his parents and to the
:hurch ?f his childhood, and from
his church he was buried: This is
raat the Bahai religion'did for a .'bril-'
Ifti?. -1 >"? ? '? .:
Han young lawyer.
Professor Gregory spoke several
times In Columbia, and each time he
was ahrewd enough to conceal his rea]
purpose. Ho displayed considerable
sagacious Judgment in the wording
aud presentation of his new doctrine.
But while the people admired his ora
tory, they failed to accept his teach
ing. The impression he seemed to
have made was short lived, and soon
I passed away. But there may be a few
who like the young lawyer referred
I to above, who will follow the pro

THE GREAT fl \CE CON
FERENCE W VS A
Notwithstanding the fact that
the Hace Conferance was not as
largely attended this year as in
some years of the past as are
so many other organizations
these days during strenous times
from every point of view, the
Race Conference was a success.
Many helpful addresses were
made on live topics of the day by
men and women best prepared to
make them. ThoBe who attend
ed the sessions have reasons to
rejoice that they did and only
those who did not attend were
the losers of many helpful sug
gestions and new ideas.
The Conferencf ei.ded Thurs
day night with thrilling speeches
by Dr. William H. Johnson of
Charleston; Rev. M. L. Carlisle,
(white) and Bishop K. G. Finley,
All officers were re-elected.
