THE worship of the modern
church is a many-toned sym
phony, but in many caccc one
chord is lacking-the peniten
tial note. The Christianity of
many people is a complacent contem
plation-not a sorrow for sin and .an
agony of moral aspiration. The creed
of the multitude is: "God is in his
heaven, all's right with the world and
us." This mood of superficial con
tentment ls not that with which "god
liness" is joined in the beatitude and
declared to be great "gain," but is
really a state of indifference with re
spect to such Ideas as atonement and
regeneration. Hence we find that,
while crowds jostle one another on*
the sunny way to the halls of Caia
phas, or even the Temple courts, the
pathway to dark Gethsemane tempts
but few-here and there a Magdalene
or a contrite publican whose vital
powers have burned almost to
socket-and yet Jesus Christ snjent
more time, at least more congenial
hours, with publicans than he did
with Pharisees, and hardly ever re
ferred to the Sadducees except to ex
pose their shallow philosophy and
their still shallower hearts. Somehow
the Bible does strike the penitential
note-somehow its promises are most
ly to humble and contrite souls.
It is worthy to note that two re
nowned preachers, both Englishmen
it happens, have lately sounded a
warning against the spirit of smug
Pharisaism which seems to possess
large sections of the modern church.
Thus Dr. J. H. Jowett says: "Every
thing is not right among us. We are
busy, but we are not impressive. We
may interest, but we do not .con
strain. We may tickle men's palates,
but we do not make them feel the
bitterness of sin." So Rev. Charles
Brown rebukes the modern church tpi
its 8elf-righteaueness and "unctuous
rectitude," for it has no out-goings of
self-denying and self-giving service to
the people without who need help.
"There are churches absolutely desti
tute of any passion in this direction,"
he declares. "There are multitudes
of our church members who do not
care. They never give a thought lo
the subject They belong to a church
as they belong to a club. They pay
their seat subscriptions, they expect
their reserved place, they go to hear
their favorite preacher; and it ends
Warning Worth Heeding.
These warnings are needed, though
the indictment may easily be mad?
more severe than the facts warrant
It behooves us not to berate others
in respect of self-righteousness and
"elder brother" unconcern for the
prodigals, whether returning or unre
turned, but to look Into our own
hearts to se whether they are sepul
chres of pride instead of sanctuaries
of penitence. Yet we must not*be un
mindful of certain drifts of the timer?,
in which the leaders of the church
are in danger of being caught. Ii
may be, as the Christian World (Lon
don] thinks, that preachers "have-itf
lowed" Ihelr^ersonal and professional
interest in the fascinating intellectual
problems of theology and criticism !to
deflect them too much from the lin?
of preaching directly to the heart and
mind of average modern congrega
tions." It Is not fair to blame oniy
the preachers for such loss of the-unc
tion of a prophetic message, for the
churches in the long run, and for tte
most part, have Just such preachTOJ '
as they want and as they make, and'
none others. It is a time, not for
mutual misunderstanding, much less
for mutual recrimination, between
clergy : nd laity, but for a general
searching of heart, for prostration be
for the cross of Christ, for confession
of sin as well as confession of faith,
and for the taking of such a docile
and teachable attitude before th?

The Supreme Aim.
To be what God wills us to be, and
because he wills it-this should be our'
supreme thought and aim, and the
mainspring of our Christian life. The
sanctified Instinct which leads us to
ask, not first of all for our daily bread,
or the forgiveness of our trespasses,
or the avoidance of temptation even,
but which places in the forefront bf
our most passionate longings and
pleadings "Thy name be hallowed, thy
kingdom come, thy will be done on
earth as lt is in heaven"-the suppli
cation which puts the Divine will "in
the beginning," will lead to the purest
and loftiest experience possible to
man on the earth.
