INTRODUCTION. The student should
remember that the epistles were written
mainly to proteot disciples against the bad
conduct and erroneous opinions of thoso
with whom they were associated. This
fact accounts for tre difference in the
style and matter of the Pauline and Cath
olic epistles. The former were addressd
to converts among the Gentile?, who were
liable to retain the practices and views
of tho Gentiles, while tho latter were ad
dressed to 'those who had been Jews, who
might bo disposed to Jewish ways. It
Is very fortunate that the doctrine of the
Now Testament was delivered in this
practical manner, rather than In the form
of systematic theology, as in our day.
Hero we find the key to tho book of James
which is an antidote to Jewish Influence.
In last lesson we saw how anxious the
apostle was to save tho church from the
supreme fault of the Jews, who measur
ed every mnni by the soundness of his
faith and paid little regard to his out
CAUTION. Today's lesson deals with
another Judaistlo folly, closely related
to the other. Thero had grown up in tho
notion a fanatical activity in teaching
with a view to promote the faith. Many
esteemed it the height of earthly honor
to bo called rabbi, or teacher. (Matt,
xxlll, 7.) They abandoned ordinary call
Ings to engage In public disputations and
make proselytes (Matt, xxlll, 15). All this
Jesus discouraged among His followers,
and urged them to look to Him as the
teacher, (Mat,t. xxlll, g). So Jarnes In this
epistle, after showing that a mere intel
lectual acceptance of the truth Is less im
portant than tho Jews supposed, caution
ed tho disciples that they might not un
duly usolro to tho work of a master or
teacher, (verse 1). He reminds them that
teachers ere liable to err and come under
great condemnation, that it takes a rt
markable man, one well-nigh perfect to
fill this Important station, (verse 2), In
this there Is no dliparagement of the
teacher's offlca which is Divinely instltuU
ed (Eph. iv, 11), but a check upon un
worthy persons who seek to enter it.
UTILITY. To enforce theo dissuasive
words the apostle next shows to what high
use tho human tongue may be devoted,
and what wilt bo Its power when used
rightly. This he does by two compari
sons. The first Is the bit with which a
horse may be governed (Psalm xxxil, 9),
and rendered serviceable to Its ownor
(verse 3). The second Is the helm by
which a. ship may bo guided, even though
driven by fierce winds (verse 4). The value
of the bit and the helm as instruments is
determined, however, by the strength and
goodness of the man behind both. A
weak man could not manage a horse or
all a vessel, neither could a bad man bo
trusted to make tho attempt. So this or
Kan of speech Is a weapon of great power
for good only when wielded aright. He
who cannot control his tongue ought not
to be a teacher. A man of great poise,
symmetry and strength Is alone worthy.

PERVERSITY. Having shown tho
value of a tongue rightly used, likening
its power to that of a bit In tho mouth
of a horse and a helm In a ship, tho
apostle next exhibits the mischief that'
may bo wrought by a tongue wrongly
Ufced (verses 5 and 6). First, it hurts oth
ers, and may bo compared to fire. As a
spark may cause a great conflagration,
reducing buildings to ashes and render
ing men homeless, so unkind or untruth
ful words wound thoso who hear them,
burn those concerning whom they are
spoken, nnd stir up strife in families and
communities (Prov. xv 1). "Behold what
a great matter a little firo klndleth." On
the other hand the evil tongue defiles the
man who possesses It (Mark vll, 15). It
were enough to startle any to know that
by speech character Is revealed (Matt.
xxvl, 73), and that by it one Is adjudged
(Matt, xli, 37). But hero Is a much more
serious thought, that improper, unwhole
tome words leave a stain upon the very
soul of the man who uttets them. No
ono can escape the effects upon himself,
INABILITY. One might misjudge the
purpose of the apostle In drawing the con
trast botween the tonguo rightly used as
an instrument of good, and the tongue
wrongly used as an Instrument of evil.
He does not present these to the choice of
rren, although every one would approve
the former and reject tho latter. This
Is not a matter within the range of human
choice. If a man has un evil tongue he
cannot control It. The tonguo is the un
ruly member, full of all manner of poison.
It cannot be tamed. Man's power over tho
beasts and birds and things In the sea,
is well known, but ho Is unable to regulate
his own speech (verses 7 and 8). If at
times he uees gentle words and puts a
restraint upon his lips, it will be of short
duration. The apostle states the fact,
without accounting for It, But Jesus
gives tho secret, "Of tho abundance of
the heart the mouth spoaketh.' (Luke vl,
45). The speech cannot be regulated by
art or device, or made subject to one's
purpose. It Is the spontaneous outflow
of what is within,
DUPLICITY. Now comes a remark
able phenomenon (verses 9 and 10). Tho
samo tongue will at ono time bo used
rightly, at another time wrongly. A
man will pralso God, and shortly after
curse man, Blessings and cursings pro
ceed out of the same mouth. This du
plicity is because of the double life that
men lead. Their speech being the result
of their interior condition, must partake
of their moods, riling Into the heights of
apparent piety, sinking Into the depths
of shamoful sinfulness, registering day by
day, and hour by hour, tho thoughts and
feelings. This repretentatlon of the apos.
tI6 will ba recognized by all as correct.
Most men have observed tho same Itate
In others. Perhaps nowhere In tho Scrip
ture do -the two sides of human nature
find fuller exhibit than In these words of
tho apostle. And In no way does man
show his excellences and defects more ful
ly than in his language,

There were not a few weddings dur
ing the week, though the number was
not ns great as Is usual In this month
of roses and brides. E'.nor W. Swin
gle, of Peokvllle, and Miss Esther Etta
Moyle, of Oakwood place, this city,
were wedded at 12.4G o'clock Wednes
day by Rev. Q. M. Glffln, D. D., at Elm
Park church. Little Miss Elizabeth
Pettlgrew and Leon Moyle, cousin and
brother respectively of the bride, who
were flower maid and master, were the
tho tonguo calls for an expression of dis
approval (verso 10), and ot surprise or
regret (verses 11 and 12), Tho apostle
shows that he understands tho nature of
the difficulty and that he has traced the
trouble to Its source. Tho tongue is not
nt fault that Is only tho organ of the soul.
Two figures are used. A fountain pours
forth water, but sweet water and bitter
water do not como from- the samo foun
tain. A tree and a vine bear fruit, but
they do not bear olive berries and figs
simultaneously. Nature Is never contra
dictory. But a man, the noblest of all
creations of God, gives out of his heart
that which is good and that which is bad.
This proves that he is in on unnatural,
abnormal, or depraved state. Thus we
have been conducted to tho very secret
of all evil speaking, and James puts
himself in accord with tho fundamental
postulate of all revelation, that man's
heart Is disordered and sinful (Jer. xvll,
COUNSEL. Having been cautioned
against haste and ambition In assuming
the functions of a teacher, and having
contemplated tho possible usefulness and
the peril 'In speech and learned the In
ability to govern tho tongue, and tho
reason for Its Irregular action, ono may
deslro advlco as to the truo way of exer
cising talents. This the apostle attempts
In verse 13. "Is thero a wise man endued
with knowledge among you?" There aro
many such In every church. Let him
"show out of a good conversation his
works with meekness." Let him use his
wisdom and knowledge In the ordinary
affairs of l'fe. Let him do this without
any ostentation, or pride, or boasting.
Shall he stop thero? Certainly not, but
he must begin there. If he has not abil
ity to manago his own affairs he Is not
qualified to teach (I Tim. ill, 8-12). When,
In this' humbler, and more retired place
a man exhibits his qualities he will bo
called Into a larger sphere The voice of
neighbors who behold the display of wis
dom will seek him and esteem his works.
CONCLUSION. It will bo seen that In
this exposition tho word master In tho
first verse has been mado tho key to the
wholo passage. To be sure, tho utter
ances aro general from tho third to tho
twelfth verse,, as If Intended to represent
tho common sins of the tongue and ap
plicable to all persons. And yet It is be
