was on "Blander Against Religion An

littlo book out ot the antrol'i band, and ate
It up; and It was in mouth sweet ui honey;
and as soon a I had eaten It my bolly waa
Ditter. And he said unto mo, thou must
prophony npfuln before many pcoplos, and
nations, and ton-rues, and kin?." Rev. x.
10-11. Tho eloquent cllvlno spokoas follows:
Domitian, the Houmn Emporor, hud in bis
rculm a troublc-omo evaneolist who would
keep prenehini?, and so he exiled him to a
barron Inland, ai now the Russians exile
convicts to Biberln, or aa sometimes the
Englkli Oovcrnment used to sond prisoners
to Au-trallu. The island I apeak of is now
called rntmos, and It Is so barren and un
rroduetlro that its inhabitants live by fish
liifr.
But one day the cvantrellst of whom I
sneak, tlttlnir at tho mouth of a cavern on
the hlll-sido, and perhaps half aslocp nnder
the drone of the saa. has a supernatural
dream, and before him pass, ns In panorama,
time and eternity. Amnnf thestrnntro thlnprs
that ho saw wns an angel with a little book
In his hand, and in hit tren.m tho ovangoUst
asked for this littlo book, nnd the angel
gave It to him, and told him to eat It up,
As In adrcnm things nro sometimes Incon
gruous, tho evangelist took tho little hook
and eat it up. The angel told him before
hand that It would bo very sweet in the
mouth, hut afterward be would be tro lblod
with indigestion. True enough, tho evange
list devour the book and it becomes to h'm
a sweetness during tho tnasticitlon, but
arrerward a physical blt'oruem.
Who the ingul wns and what the book
was no one can tell. The commentators do
not agree, and I shall take no responsibility
of Interpretation, but will tell yon that It
anrgotts to mo the littlo book of creed
whleh skeptics take ami chw un and find a
very luscious morsol to their witticism, but
after a while it is to them a great distress.
Tho angolof the church hands out this little
book of evangelism, ami the antagonists of
tho Christian Church take it and eat It up,
and It makes thorn smile at first, but after
ward it is to them a dire dyspepsia.
All Intelligent p-onlo hivo creoils that Is,

Ignorance on the part of tho acoTur, for he
baahimelf a hundred creeds In rnrard to
other things In our time the beliefs of
evamrollstlc churches are under a fuslllndo
of corlcatiiro and misrepresentation. Mon
set no what they call orthodox faith, and
then thev rnle It wlthtHn mnk"try of their
denunrli.il. n. They fe.SIfy what the Chris
tian churchc believe. They ti.lio evangeli
cal do-trinrm ntid sot then in n hnrnh and re
pulsive way and put th-m nut of the asso

ent from what it l represented to bo by
theta enemle as the senrecrow which a
farmer put Inti the corn field to keep off
the raven I different from tho farmer him
elf. For IntUncA these enomles of evangelism
say that the Presbyterian Church believe
God is a savage (overehrn and that He made
sons men just to damn them, and that there
are Infanta in bell a span long. These old
slander oome down from generation to gen
eratloa. The Presbyterian Church believes
no such thing. The Presbyterian Church
believe that Ood I a loving and Just sorer
sign and that w are free agents. "No, no I
that can notbe,"ay these men who have
ohewtd ue the creed and bare the conse
quent embittered (tomacli. Thnt Is Im
possible; If Hod is a sovereign we can't be
free agent." Why, my friend, we admit
this la every other direction. I, De Witt
Talmage, am a free ettlzeu of Brooklyn. I
go when 1 please and I oome when I please,
but I havo at least four sovereign. The
church court of our denomination; tbat la
my eoclesia alcal toverelgn. The mayor of
thl city; be is my munlcliail sovereign. The
Governor of New York; lie I my State sov
erelgn. The President of the United Btalei;
be I my national sovereign.
Four sovereign have I, and yet In every
faculty of body, mind and soul I am a free
man. Bo, yon see, it 1 possible tbat the two
doctrines go side by side, and there I (com
mon sent way of presenting It, and there
is a way that Is ropul Ive. If you have the
two doetrlnee In a worldly direction, why
not In a religious direction I If I choose to
morrow morning to walk Into the Mercan
tile Library and improve my mind, or to go
through the conservatory of my friend at
Jamaica, wbo ha flowers from all landa
growing nnder the arches of glass, and wbo
has an aquarium all aawtm with trout and
gold flsrx, and there are tree bearing orange
and bananaa if I wanted to go there I
could, I am free to go. If I want to go over
to Hoboknn and leap into a furnace of an oil
factory, If I want to Jump from the plat,
form of tbe Ph iladolpbla express train. If I
want to leap from Brooklyn bridge, I may.
But suppose I should go to-morrow acd leap
Into the furnace at Hoboken, wbo would be
to blsmel Tbat I all there Is about sover
eignty and free agency. Ood rulos and
reigns, and be has conservatories and be ha
blast furnace. If you want to walk In tbe
garden walk there. It you want to leap
Into tbe furnace, you may.
Suppose now a man bad a charmed key
with which he could open all the Jails, and
be should open Raymond street Jail and
the New York Tomb and all the prison on
the continent. In three week what kind ol
a country would thl bet all tbe Inmate
turned out of those prisons and poniten.
Us lies. Huppose all the reprobate, the bad
spirit, the outrageou aplrlta, should be
turned Into the now Jerusalem. Why, the
next morning the gate of pearl would be
found off bingo, tho linchpin would be gone
eutot tbe oliarlot wheels, the "house ol
many mansions" would be burglarised. As
sault and battery, arson, libertinism and as
easslnatlon would reside In the capital ol
the skies. Angels ol God would be Insulted
en tbe street. Heaven would be a dead
failure if there were no groat lock-up. li
all people without regard to Uiulr cbaracte
when they leave this world go right into
glory, I wonder if in the temple of tbe skies
Cbarles Gulteau and John Wilkes Booth oc
cupy the same pewl Your common sense
demands two destinies I And then as to the
Prexbyterian Church believing there are in
fante In pordMon, if you will bring "me a
Preshyterlan of good morale and sound
mind who will say that be believes there
cvor wa a baby In the lost world, or ever
will bo, I will make him a deed to the house
I live in. and he can tuko possession to-morrow.
Bo tho Episcopal Church is misrepresented
by tho enemies of evangelism. They say
tbat church substitutes forms and oere-
' tnenloj for heart religion, and it Is all a mat
ter of liturgy and genuflexion. False again.
An Episcopalians will toll you tbat tbe form
and creeds of tholr church are worse than
nothing unle the heart go with them.
6o nlBO tho Baptist Church has beon mis
represented. The enemies of evangelism
say the Baptist Church b-lleves that unless
a man Is Immorsed he will never get into
Henven. Falso again. AU the Baptists,
dose communion and open communion, be
lieve that if a man accept tU6 Lord Jesus
Christ he will be saved, whother he be
Peptized hy ono drop of water on t'm fore
hand, or bo plunred Into the Ohio or Susque
hanna, although immersion Is tbe only gate
by which one enters their earthly com
munln. The enemies of evangelism also misrepre
sent the Methodist Church. They say the
Methodist Church believes that a man can
convert himself, and thnt conversion In that
cl'urcb Is a temporary emotion, and that all
a man has to do is to kneel down at the
altar and feel bad and then the minister
pats him on tho back and says: "It Is all
right," and thnt is all there Is of It.
False again. The Methodist Church believe
that the Holy Ghost alone can convert a
heart, and In that church conversion is an
earthquake of conviction and a sunburst of
pardon. And as to mere "temporary emo
tion," I wish we nil had more of the "tem
porary emotion" which lasted Bishop Janes
and Matthew Blmpson for half a century,
keeping thorn on are for fiod until their holy
enthusiasm consumod their bodies.
Bo all the evangelical denomination are
ml represented. And then these enemlo
of evangel! m go on and bold up the great
doctrines of Christian chnrcbe as absurd,
dry and Inexplicable technicalities. "There
Is your doctrine of the Trinity," thoy sav.
"Absurd beyond all bounds, the Idea that
there is a God in three persons. Impossible.
If It Is ono God he can't be three, and If
there are throe, tboy can't ba ono." At tho
tame time all of us thy with us acknowl
edge trinities all aro in.l us. Trinity In onr
own make-up body, mind, soul. Body with
which we movo, mind with which wo think,
soul with which we love. Three, yet one
man. Trinity In tho air light, heat, mois
ture yet ono at mo phero. Trinity in the
court room thn-e Judges on tho bench, but
cne court. Trinities nil around about n, in
earthly government nnd In nature. Of
course, all of tho ll'ustratlonrt are defective
for the reason that the nutnrul can not fully
Illustrate tho spiritual. But suppose an
h:nomnt man should oima np to a chemist
nnd say: "I deny what you say about the
water and about the air; thoy are not made
of different parts. The air is ono; I breathe
it every day. Tho water is one ; I drink It
every day.
"You can't deceive me about the element
that go to make up the air and the water."
The chemist would say : "You come up into
my laboratory and I will demonstrate tbl
whole thing to you." The Ignorant man
goes Into the chemist's laboratory and see
for himself. lie learn tbat the water Is one
and tbe air 1 one, but they are made up of
different parts. So bore Is a man who says:
' I can't understand the doctrine of th
Trinity." God says: "You come np here
Into the laboratory after yonr death and yen
will see you will co It explained, you will
toe It demonstrated." Tbe ignorant man
ran not unders'ind tho chomlstry of the
water and tho air until ba goes Into tbe lab
oratory, and we will never undorstand the
Trinity until we go into heaven. The Igno
rance of the mun who enn hot undorstand
the chemistry of the air and wnter does not
change the fact in regard to tho composition
of sir and water. Bocauso we can not on
dertnnd the Trinity, doot tbat change the
fact! :,. ;..- . V-
"And t hero is your absurd doctrine about

nists wbo have chowed np the little book of
evangelism, and have tho consequent embit

'That' a lie!" A a officer of tbe church
tapped him on the shoulder end (aid : "Yon

next night that ttrangor came, and he wa
converted to God. He wa Inth liquor busi

day be tent back tbe (ample that had Just
been sent him. He began to love that wblrh

the baptistry nnder this platform. A large
salary was offered btm If be would return
to bis former business. He declined It He
would rather suffer with Jesu Christ than
be prospered In the world. He wrote home
a letter to hi Christian mother. Tbe Chris
tian mother wrote back congratulating him,
and said! "If in the ebangeof your business
you hare lack of means, come home; yon
are alway weloome home." He told of bli
conversion to a dissolute companion. Th
dissolute companion said. "Well If you bars
become a Christian, you had bettor go over
and talk to tbat dying girl. She Is dying
with qulok consumption In that house."
Tbe new oonvert went there. All tbe sue
rounding were dissolute. He told th
dying girl tbat Jesu would sav ber. 1 "O,"
aaldihe 'that can't be, that can't bo I What
make yon tblnk sot" "I have It her In t

out a Now Testament Bhe said: "Bbow It

that book." Ho Id: "I have ncglecuu
this book a you huve neglected it for many
years, and don't know where to find it but I
know it Is lomewhere between tbo lids."
Thun he began to turn ovor the leaves, and
strange and beautiful to say, bie eye struck
upon thl passage: "Neither do I condemn
thoe; go and sin no moro." Blio said; 'It
Isn't possible that 1 thorel" '-Yes," he
said, "tbat 1 there." He held it np before

All modo over again by the power ot the
grace of God.
A few years ago a ship captain came in
hero and sat under the gallery. lie came in
with a contempt for the church of God and
with an especn 1 dislike for Talmage. When
an opportunity was given ho arose for
prayer, and as he was more than six foot
high, when he arose for prayer no one
doubted that ho arose I Tbat hour he be
came a Christian. Ho went out and told
the ship owners and the ship commanders
what a great change had boon wrought in
hiui, and scores and scores have been
brought to God through his Instrumentality.
A little while after his conversion he wua
on ship off Cape Hatteras in a thick and pro
longed fug, and they were at- their wits'
ends and kuew not what to do, the ship
drifting about hither and thither, and they
lout tholr bearings; and the converted sea
captain wont to his room and asked God for
tbe salvation of bis ship, and God revealed
to him while he was ou his knoes that nt a
curium hour, only a little way off, the fog
would lift; and the convurlod sea captain
came out on the dock and toid bow God had
heard his prayers. Ho said: "It it all right,
boys, very soon now the fog will lift," men
tioning the hour. A man who stood tbert
laughed aloud In derision ut the idoa that
God would answer prayer; but at Just the
hour when God had assured the captain the
fog would lift there came a hash of lightning
through the fog and the mun wbo bad Joered
and laughed was stunned and fell to th
d ck. The fog lifted. Yonder was Cape
llattorat lighthouse. The ship was put on
the right course and sal ed on to tbe harbor
in safely.
When in seaport th captain apend most
of his time in evangelical work, lie kneeis
down by one wbo has been helpless In the
bod for many months, and the next day she
walks forth In the streets well. He kneels
beside one who has lung been decrepit and
be resigns tho crutches. Ho kneels beside
one wbo had not seen enough to bo able to
read for ten y -ars and sbe roads the Blbl i
that day. Consumptions goaway, and those
who hail diseases appalling to behold come
up to rapid convalescence and to complete
health. I am not telling you any thing sec
ond bunded. I have bad the story from the
llns f the patients In this very house, those
who wore brought to health of body while
at the same time brought to Ood. No seo-ond-handed
story this. I have heard the
testimony from men and women wbo have
been cured. You may call It faitb-cure, or
you may call It tho power of God coining
down In answer to pray or; I do not cure
what you cull it it is a fact. Tho sending
sea captain, his heart full of hatred for
Chris iaulty, now becomes a follower of tho
meek and lowly Jesus, giving all the time to
evangelical labors, or ull the time be can
spare from otber occupations. Tnat Is re.
generation, that Is regeneration. Him all
made over again,
"There Is yonr absurd doctrine of vlcsrl
eus sacrifice," say those men who have
chewed up the l u book of creeds and have
the consequent embittered stomach. "Vi
carious sucrttloel Let every mun suffar for
himself. Why do I want Christ to suffer
for mel I'll suffer for myself and carry my
own burdens." . Tbey scoff at the Idea of vi
carious Haertlloe, while thoy admire It. every
where else except in Christ. People see its
bsuuty when a mother suffers for nor child.

Ing at the funeral, th lurgest ever at any
funeral in that place and the very peop.e
wbo had scoffed ca las and looked upon thst
pale face of the martyr, and ail honor was
done ber; but It was too lata. Vicarious
saeritioel All are thrilled with oeb in
stances a that But many are not moved
by tbe fact tbat Christ paid his poverty for
our riches, his self-sbnegalion for our en.
tbronement and knelt on tbe sbarp edges of
humiliation that we might climb over his
lacerated shoulder into peace and Heaven.
Be it our to admire and adore these doo
trlnes at which others Joer. O. the depths
of the riches both of the wisdom and knowl
edge of God I How unsearchable is HI wis
dom, and His way are past Boding outl O,
the height tbe depth, the length, the
breadth, the Infinity, the immensity, the
eternity of tbat love! I-etour earnest pray
ers go out in behalf of all those wbo scoff at
these doctrines of gruoe. When tbe London
plague was raging In the year 1065, there
was a hotel near the chief burial place tbat
excited much comment England wa in
fright and bereavement The dead carta
went through the streets day and night and
theory: "Bring out your dead I" was an
swered by the bringing out of the forms of
the loved ones, end they were put twenty or
thirty la a cart, and the wagon went on to
tbe oemeUtry; od these dead were not
buried In graves, but In greet trenches in
f raat pita, in one nit eleven hundred and
onrteen burials I The carta would oome o p
with their great burden of twentv or thirty
to the mouth of tbe pit and the front of the
cart wa lifted and the dead shot into tbe
pit All tbe churches In London were open
for prayer day and night and England wa
in a groat anguish. At that very time, at a
hotel, at a wayside inn near the chief burial
place, there waa group of burdened
men, who sat day after day and night
after night blaspheming God and imitating
tbe grief-struck who went by to the
burial place. These men sat there day after
day and nlgbt after night and they scoffed
at men, and they scoffed at women, and tbey
scoffed at God. But after while ooe of
them waa (truck witb the plague, aad la
two week all of th group were down In
the trench from the margin of whleh they
had uttered Ihnlr ribaldry. My friend, a
greater plague I abroad In tbe world. Mill
too have died of it Million are smitten
with it now. Plagu of sin, plague of sor
row plague of wretcbednoss, plague of woe.
And consecrated women and men from all
Christendom are going out trying to star
the plague and alleviate tbe anguish, and
there 1 a group of men in tble country base
enongh to sit and deride the work. They
scoff at the Bible, and tbey scoff at evan
gelism, and thersooff at Jesus Christ and
they sooff at Uxl. if these word shall
reach them, cither whllo they are sitting
here to-day or through the printing
press, let me tell them to remember the fat
of tbat group In tbe wayside inn while the
Slogu apraods it two bluett wing over the
oomed city of London. O. instead of belug
scoffers l)t ns b disciples! " Blessed is the
man that walketh not In the counsel of tbe
ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners,
nor ilvtelh in the et of th scornful."
