The subject of Doctor Ford's addrcea was
"True Culture." He took for h's text II
Peter, E 3. In part he said:
"Before conslderirg the text It wll! be

In order to use knowledge effectively there
is required a manliness of character and j-mat-irltj
"In this course of spiritual development

"The sacred writer says: 'For If these

DR. BRANDT PREACHES UPON
"CHRIST THE GREAT TEACHER."
From the Text in Matthew vii, He
Delineates the Character
of the Savior.
The Reverend John I Brandt, pastor of
the First Christian Church, preached yes
terday morning on the theme 'Christ, the
Great Teacher." taking as a basis of
thought Matthew vlll. 3. 2$: "And it came
to pass, when Jesus had ended these say
ings, the people -were astonished at his doc
trine. For he taught them as one having
authority, and not as the scribes."
Doctor Brandt called attention to the
neutral and acaulred qualifications of Christ
n a teacher, emphasizing specially that he
had received wonderful training In the
ct.n..vad het he was also a student of
nature, and read the voice of his Father inj
all things. The speaker then passed to tho
Jay A. Ford.
dlseussion of "Tho Character of Jesus as a
Teacher," ard said.
"Jesus pos-esfced Infinite knowledge He
knew all things, nothing could be hid
from him The unierc seemed as trans
plant light before him In him were hid
den all the treasures of wisdom and knowl
edge 'He is unto us wii-dom, righteous
ness and knowledge' He had the full
measure of knowledge He know the God
head Thoroughly He saw Satan fall as
lightning from he.aen Ho knows the Joy
in the presence of angels He knows man's
need of salvation He knows the heart's
learnings after God. comfort and hope
He was neer puzzlod. but alwajs ready
with tho right answer for every question.
"Ho roiseJbed inhnlto holiness. Shakes
peare yald. 'It 1st aslcr to uach twenty men
what to do than bo one.' etc But Jesus
lived ills teaching. He suDDorted his truth
with his life, his words with hU example.
Other teachers have been fallible, erring
men. but he embodied his own teachings.
He lived even- precept He was holy and
undtflled. Ho was blameless.
"Jesus possessed infinite authority. It
was said of him, 'He speaks as one having
authority and not as the scribes ' The
teaching of the scribes was narrow, dog
matical, material and secondhand. They
quoud from those who had gone before,
and thus became servile to authority and
precedent. There was ro force and no
freshness in their teachings. Most of their
teachings were about mint, anise and cum
min, the breath of phvlacterles. washing of
cups and platters, new moons and Sabbath
dajK. but the teaching of Jesus was wholly
dlffernt In character so different that the
people recognized it was original and au
thoritative "It was from the mind and heart of Jesus,
which wer the mind and heart of God. He
Epake with authority and compelled his
hearers to admit his claim. The v ry pres
ence of God was in his thought. While bis
thoughts were human thoughts, addressed
to human understanding and stirring hu
man feelings, vet they possessed a divine
authority, which made them unlike anj
thlng the world had ever heard"
Speaking of Christ's mode of teaching,
Doctor Brandt said:
"The more we study his wav the more we
are Impressed with its uniqueness Men try
to explain thing", like Holmes's philosopher,
who is about to give some formula that ex
plains all appearances. The chemist in his
effort to get at the analysis of things talks
of atoms, the ontologist bf germs, the biol
ogist of protoplasm, the theologian ot tho
phllosophv of religion, but Jesus Is wholly
unlike scientists and philosophers and the
ologians for he raises no questions and
makes no effort to explain things; he sim
ply tells men what evil Is and how- to get
rid of it; ho tells us about heaven and God
as might realities that we must admit and
believo and meet and face. Ho overturned
tradition maxims which had more force In
Eociety at that time than the laws of God
and declared what was highly esteemed
among men was an abomination in the eve
of God. Ho declared that men were to love
one another as he had loved them
"His teachings were marked with great
simplicity. He thought in images. His dis
courses were full of figures of roeech. There
was no art in his words; no effort at dem
onstration; no trick of tho rhetorician; but
he sent his truth straight as an arrow ta
"Ho was tho most eloquent of preachers.
Ho spoke boldlv. He feared no man. Tho
preacher, who fears his audience and is a
respecter of persons, thinks n ore of him
self and what will be said of him than of
his God and the message he has to deliver.
Jesus nad a mess ige to deliver and he de
livered it. Judging what his biographers
say of him and those who flocked to hear

grasp such thoughts and express them so
tenderly. If fabled Hercules with the gold

men, so Jesus with the chains of truth in
his mouth chained both the cars and hearts

Important. He taught the groat truths re

the glories and showed how we might make

men how to live; how to act toward ono an

The text was Psalms xc, 11: "Light is

" "In a former sermon we saw that the

DOCTOR WILLIAMSON ON
"WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?"
Pays He Is Any Person Who Is in
eed of the Help ot ins
The Reverend Dor-tor W. J. Williamson,
pastor of the Third Baptist Church,
preached jesterday morning from Ijike x,
2 "And who is my neighbor?" The doc
tor said in part:
"Our Savior lived in a time of great
moral and spiritual darkness The religion
of tho Jews, corrupted through centuries,
was hardly to be recognized as the lav
which GcU gave to Mosea Whatever rmv
be said of evolution, it does not apply to
religion, for In every case the tendency has
been to become more and more corrupt un
til a new revclat'on must be given Jesus
came at a time when we had lost the deep
er meanings of their faith. Abraham's call
to be the founder cf a new nation and Sol
omon's praer at the dedication of the
temple were not racial and narrow, but
looked to the ultimate b'esslng of all man
kind, and et in Jesus's da the Jews had
no dealings with the Samaritans, while tre
Gentiles were dogs.
"In the Sermon on the Mount these words
were spoken: 'Thcu shalt lovo the Lord,
thy God. with all thy heart, with all thv
soul, and with all thy btrength, and with
nil thy might and thy neighbor as thself.'
ThlB led to the question of a Iawer, 'ana
who is thy neighbor?' The reply of the
Savior Is given In one of the most beauti
ful of parables: 'A man was going down
from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among
robbers, who both stripped him and beat
him and departed leaving him halflead. Bv
chance a certain priest was going down
that way. When he saw him he passed
by on the other side. And In like manner a
Levito also when he came to the place and
saw him passed by on the other rtde. But
a certain Samaritan as he Journeed came
to him arid bound up his wounds, pouring
on them ell and wine; and he sot him on
his own beast and brought him to an Inn
and took care of him And on the morrow
he took out three shillings and gave them
to the host and said, 'Take care of him and
whatsoever thou spendest more when I
come back I will pay thee." Which of
these thinkest thou was neighbor to him
that fell among the robbers? And he said
he that showed mercy to him. And Jesus
said: "Go thou and do likewise.'
"Man is a dependent creature. We re
ceive our dailv bread from God's storehouse.
In him we live, and move and have our
leing. We rre also dependent upon our
fellow- creatures. God has so linked us to
gether that our needs and blessings, our
joys and sorrows, are one. In a multitude
of was each man Is dependent upon other
men. God's purpose In the gospel is to
overcome the power of sin which has
wrought such havoc in our relations to each
other and produce a heavenly community
In which ever' man shall act toward God
as a loving, dutiful child, and toward his
fellow -man as a brother. When this end is
accomplished the Kingdom of God will
have been established and the gospel will
have born its perfect fruit. Then will our
Savior reign and the whole earth be full
of ills glory.
"Every man should be our ne'ghbor, be
cause we are the heirs of the same experi
ences. The lot of your brother may be your
lot to-morrow. If rich then Ou have been
favored by birth or circumstance and thua
far jou arc Indebted to others. God has
said, 'thou shalt not forget thy poor brother
as long as thou livest.' The life is full to
day, may be empty to-morrow. No sky re
mains forever clear, clouds follow the sun
shine. The very fact that I possess any
thins makes me a debtor to all men and
the recognition of this debt is the evidence
of the possession of the spirit of Christ, who
came not to be ministered unto but to
"Jesus means to condemn formality in
religion. God says 'they draw nigh me
with their mouths, but their hearts are far
from me.' The priest and the Lev lte, though
extremely religious, passed by on the oth
er side- A. man may be very religious and
possess but little of the spirit of Christ.
I perceive that In all things you are too re
ligious, said Paul to the Athenians. The
priest and the Levite certainly did not
possess the spirit of Jesus. Their religion
has a matter of form, like that of the
Jews, who would not enter into Pilot's
judgment hall for fear of defilement, while
they were thirsting for the blood ot pure
and Innocent Savior. Or like Herod, who
would not behead Peter until after the
feast. 'And now abldeth faith, hope. love,
these three, but the greatest of these is
love, what doth the Lord require of thee

"This Is Whltsundav. which is another
name for the day of Pentecost. It is the
birthday of the Christian Church ard tne
revealing day of the Hoi Ghost. Christlan
lt sees in God three modes of minlftsta
tinn God the Father, the creative reason;
God the Son, the suffering love; God tne
Holy Ghost, the energizing will. It be
lieves these dlstinctloi s to exist In the very

the Lord and giver cf life. He is. tho
Lord and giver of all life, but cpeclall
of spiritual life, and becomes clearly re
vealed when that spiritual life reaches an
intense and enthusiastic form This It did
on the day of Pentecost. Let us study a
little what happened First, thev were all
gathered In one place, then there was an
outpouring of intense life that seemed to
sound like a mighty wind and a halo as
of fire seemed to gather round their heads

these are mere! similitudes. Then they
had an intense des're to spoak. When -they
did speak their thought overleaped the lim
its of language and people of different na
tionalities understood them. The last phe
nomenon is often mlsn ad It Is thought
commonly that oach speaker was given he
faculty of speaking In some one foreign
tongue, but the Idea is that the Eame spei'ch
was heard at one tlmo in different lan
guages "This can only mean that the thoughts
of the speaker were convened direct to
others. It was some kind of thought trans
ference, such as we are learning a ;ood
deal nbout In ou- day. There Is one more
fact we are to bear In mind. Pentecost Is
a mighty culmination of mighty events
through which the dUciples had gone.
"They had been with Jesus; his works,
his wonders, his words, his resurrection were
In their minds. All this fuel had been
added to their mental life, but as et It
la dead and cold in memory. It had not
been welded into thtir life. It wns not
part of them Now came tho kindling
touch of the Holy Ghost, and the potential
forces which had been slowly gathering in
their hearts burst into mighty namttf
enthusiasm that sot the world on lire. Tins
world of ours is full of strange possibili
ties, its materials seem constant In ap
pearance and power. We divide them into
gases and liquids and solids. We measure
their capacities in these classes and think
we can count on them to be steadfast to
our Judgment. So they are. But some clay
wo try experiments. Wo try them by tho
touch of heat and cold. Ln! our stable
world passes Into wonderland. The gases
liquefy at the touch ot cold; the liquids
pass Into solids. Their former powers dis
appear. Dormant are their mighty en
ergies. Reverse the process: add heat to
the old liquids and solids. Lo! the solids
turn to liquids and the liquids pass into
vo'atile gases. New strange powers ap
pear. These gases are full of energy. They
soar toward heaven, they try to fill the uni
verse. "What heat does for the material uni
verse the spirit of life that we call enthu
siasm does for the world of mnn. We
think of man as a constant quantity, we
think wo measure his possibilities ard pow
ers. We estimate what his mind will do
and what his hands can do. For ordinary
mental temperatures we are not far wrong.
But add the heat of a great enthusiasm to
the man. Lo. OU pass at once Into the
land of wonders nnd miracles. All jour
estimates are out of place. The Pentecos
tal men change the history of the world.
The spirit ot a St. Paul soars nnd expands
to fill the Roman Empire. Christianity
springs from a tiny mustard seed to a great
tree whoso fai -spreading branches give
benignant shelter to millions of the weary
and heavv-laden. Look at the world of
to-day. What do wc see' What Is the
Orient? Why is its spirit inert and dead?
Because it Is frozen by the withdrawal of
all the heat of religious hope and political
and economic llbertv. There you S3e man,
but man without the fire of any holv en
thusiasm In his heart. What a powerless
nnd worthless creature he seems.
"Look at the Occident Why Is it differ
ent? Why is man so changed? Ah. now
ou are looking on man touched with the
fire from heaven! Christ has given him
faith and hope and love, the Holy Ghost
has kindled these with Pentecostal fire.
"When the powers of evil strongest seem
and men most helpless before the gods of
gold, then doubt not that God. the Hob
Ghost, will come like a mighty rushing
wind and kindle some feeble and doubting
hearts somewhere into daring self-sacrifice
and high enthusiasm, before which all the
forts of folly shall crumhle and fall. Tor
