Church Going in Washington Why Has It Declined What Is the Remedy?
Christian Life and Activity Require Spiritual Food. PASTOR RUSSELL, of the Temple Congregation, Otters Suggestions '
I. HAVE always taken an interest in the Capital City of the most advanced nation of the world and have always
, . felHhat,,here and from here to the uttermost pants of the earth the torch of liberty should show forth the glo
rious efficacy of the Cross of Christ. But this feeling has deepened and intensified since I accepted the pasto
rate of the. Washington Temple Congregation. In my inaugural address I assured my hearers that I came with
.charity for all, with malice toward none, of my Christian Brethren. I would like to emphasize this through the col
umns of The Times, to your wide circle of readers. Neither I nor any. other Christian minister holds a commission
from the Lord to pull down or to destroy. Rather, as the Apostle declares, the Lord's people are to seek to build one
another up in the "most holy faith." If the people of God will let .the light of His Truth shine out, it will scatter
darkness wherever it goes, in ourselves and in others. It was our Master who said, "Let your light so shine before
men that -they may see your good works and glorify your Father whichf is;ln vHeayen.-'l My endeavors in. the Temple
Congregation, everywhere, will be. to reachhe great mass of thinking people who today are practically un
churched. The discontented, the dissatisfied, yet hungry, lovers of truth and righteousness we specially invite.
Why Church Attendance Is. Small
Various are the reasons given for the admitted and lamented decline in church. attendance everywhere. Some .
blame the automobiles and the fact that many find more pleasure spinning over the face of the earth and viewing
nature than in attending Divine worship. Others blame the comic sections of the Sunday newspapers and tell us that
they absorb the time and thought of those who formerly went to church. Othersblame the magazines and claim t
that much of the preaching has degenerated into attempted .scientific dissertations by men who are less quali
fiecHor the task than the magazine writers. "Others blame my sermons, claiming that these, published in more than
a thousand newspapers weekly, are satisfying the religious appetites of the people at-home and hindering church at
tendance. Others claim that the world is growing worse, that the teaching ancTpreaching of Evolution and Higher
Criticism-have well-nigh destroyed the faith of the majority of the people in respect to the .Bible and everything re
ligious, and that this smallness of faith accounts for the smallness of church attendance and for the increase of
crime: - .
What Is the Remedy?
4 It is not for me to decide to what extent these reasons properly explain the decrease of public attendance at ,
churches. I will, however, make Tjold to make some suggestions respecting-a remedy, which, I believe, would grad-'
ually increase church attendance and Kappify and interest ministers and people.
v I believe that dishonesty haS been one of the fruitful causes of a decline in church attendance. Ministers in
private tell of their unbelief in the Bible-and in their creeds, yet continue to use the Bible and to supporMhe creeds.
The average' man and woman has ai respect for honesty and feels that this is not quite" honest and above board not
quite the honest course. Hence many of them gradually lose interest, Nsaying, Why should we pretend to believe
these things which we doubt and which the ministers tell us they doubt, or deny?
This doubt, this lack of faith. I believe, is at the foundation of the general decline of interest in religion, even,
though other attractions may co-operate. If we have rightly diagnosed the case, we submit that a proper treatment
-'of it would be along the following lines;, -,.....
' - t, Let us each and all see to it M't Honesty is given first place in everything religious: This may mean a certain
amount of 'division in a way, but a general betterment, we believe, everyway. For instance, let those ministers-who
are -thoroughly convinced that the Bible is uninspired, and that its teaching of the fall of man from the image of his
Creator is a fallacy, and that his redemption from the fall by the death of Jesus is a fallacy, and that the hope of a fu
ture life through such redemption is a fallacy let these take their stand openly and honestly. Let'these gather to
themselves -along -ethical liries-such ararerin- sympathy with their presentations, making no pretense whatever to
faithm tlie Bible.Jhey wiH have large congregations, doubtless, for they are-generally talented men. They, will feel .
more'ftee and aplelvthemselves "because theirown"con sciences will approve.
Let all Christian ministers of every denomination who thoroughly believe their creeds, say so, and gather to
themselves the small handful of people who still believe the inconsistencies of the "Dark Ages." They will feel the
happier foKlaking sucha-decided stand, even though their numbers will necessarily be small.
Let airChristian -ministers of every denomination who still believe the Bible to be God's inspired Word, and
who realize.the incdnsistericy of the creeds of the past; come together,, Let them .begin- a' fresh ,stu(iy of the Bible 2
itself, comparing Scripture with Scripture. Let them stand for. eyJerythipg'Ctiia't js written intlief Boole publicly 'and 1
leanessiy, ami ici us au accn. iu miuw inure aim mure me i cai learnings or inai BOOK, wlTJl ail ineugnt upon it wnicn
we can obtain from any quarter. My stand" will be in this class of ministers. And to us will gradually gravitate the
best-hearted and some of the best-headed. . ,".'
The result of 'this honest course would be that religion would become the chief topic of conversation in Wash
ington, and with malice toward none and charity toward all we'rriay be sure that .the outcome would be a revival of
religious interest of an intelligent kind that -would not be ephemeral in,its results. My contact with the thinking
people of the-world convinces me that the present conditionjsthejnoslinjurious one imaginable. Ministers who dis
believe a creed cannot strongly champion it. Weakness is, thereforemanifest along Christian lines.
Good Morals Not ;Relifkn. ' "
Good morals are not religion. There are moral, as well as immoral, people in every land and-in every religion.
The Bible expressly points out that although good works are important'ahd pleasing in God's sight, nevertheless,, the
offer of this Gospel Age is not merely a reward for ood morals; but primarily a reward for proper faith. A correct
faith, howeever, is the best basis of all for the highest form of Christian living and the Golden Rule!
And just here lies the defect which wtf are warning against. Tfie dishonesty of professing creeds which we $q
not believe and' posing as representatives of those creeds is, having a most immoral effect upon Christians every-,
where. The man or woman who is dishonest inrespect to his God and his faith Will soop -find itiornparatfvely easyflo
be dishonest jn. his dealings with his fellowmen. He who lies, deliberately in-respect to his religion may, not long be '
trustable in respect to any matter The remedy, then, of our.'non-churcji-goingand tendency toward immoralityis
honesty in dealing with the Bible and all things religious. Man isinaturally religiously inclined, and the vast majority
havereasonableconceptions of justice; honesty. These natural traits -need to.be guided and up-built -along Biblical linesl
Everything tending to their suppression surely makes 'for immorality, heartlesshess, and conscienceless ungodliness:
My conviction along these lines has been clearly presented td the Washington Temple'Congregation. My own
utterances and those of my assistants in that Pulpit will be absolutely unfettered. by human creeds, biit,thoroughly
in subjection to the Bible, which .we recognize as the inspired Message of a 'God of. Wisdom; Justice, Lovej and
Power. Our doors' stand open toN-Washingtonians and visitors from every clime. Our seats are7,ffe: We7takeupr-nx
collections. The poorest or the' richest may attend and never be asked for money. On the contrary, those whose,
l hearts prompt the'fh to desire to contribute to the work will be granted the opportunity- But jhey must seek the
opportunity. 1 reei use making inib a rctummenuauun iu au innsuan communions nere ana everywnere. wnue
it will do people good to give out their substance for the support of the Divine .Message, it, appears to me that con
tinual solicitation is harmful to the Cause we wish to serve. Our Heavenly Father is rich, and those who learn to
love Him and His Word are glad to voluntarily give to the sending forth of the Message.
( Bible Study and Bible Questions.
:. The people have gained the impression that the Bible contradicts itself and that its presentations 'are inde-'
fensible. This is a mistake. We ad vocate Bible Study Classes in which everything appertaining to the Bible topfcB
fully and freely discussed:from the Bible standpoint. We welcome questions. And if we cannot answer them we wJH
be frank enough to say so. But the unanswerable questions respecting the Bible we believe extremely rare. r '
Connected with the Washington Temple Congregation is a large adult Class of Bible Students under able di
rection and with full liberty. It' meets every- Sunday night at Old Masonic Temple at 7:30 o'clock. All are.welconie,
especially all whoare unchurchedand dissatisfied. Our advice to the fully satisfied is,;,"Stay where-youtre. iietwell --enough
alone." There are far more dissatisfied ones 'thaaweian possibly accommodate. But wedo want tcTjiieetSl
"C the:clissatisfied,- hungry children of God who love the Bible andVho long to have thd theological kinks of their creeds
straightened out by the Bible. And what we are thus doing in the International Bible Students' Association we com
mend to all Christian people of every denomination. Nothing could be better calculated to arouse interest in religkras
matters than Bible Study Classes conducted -along free and intelligent Bible.lines. ,
