Mixing Religion With Politics and business.
We have all heard preachers condemned because they discussed
in the pulpit the every day affairs of life ; because they talked
about living things, present day issues ; told us how we should con
duct ourselves in our business relations ; spoke of political matters
and denounced the acts and policies of men in public life. Each
one of us at sometime or other has heard an expression similar to
the following : "Why does he not preach the gospel, instead of
interfering with things that are none of his affairs. Politics and
business should be kept out of the church."
In one of the most forceful and logical sermons it has ever been
our pleasure to read Dr. Washington Gladden, of Columbus, dis
cusses the relationship of religion to business and politics. Among
many other good things, he says, "Separate religion from life, from
public life, social life, business life, the life of the community
make it a mere theology or a mere subjective experience or a mere
ritualistic cult, and it grows sour and bitter and rancid ; it becomes
Phariseeism or orthodoxism or fanaticism or superstition. On the
other hand, if it is kept in constant and vitalizing touch with the
life of the people it is kept pure and rational and fruitful of good
works. The only way to keep our own religion sane and vital is to
make it a power in the life of the community and the nation. The
tendency is just as strong today as it was 25 centuries ago to sepa
rate religion from life. Perhaps there are as many people today as
there were in the days of Amos
the Christian law to bear on trade
national problems is a profanity
The truth of the above statements are self evident. If a reli
gion is to mean anything, it must
a people, it must effect their every
every department of life. If it
In our opinion the preacher
business into the pulpit is not preaching the religion of Josus Christ;
Politics and business more vitally effect the happiness and wellfare
.of everyone than anything else and what is a religion for if it does
not deal with the things that make
. To the man who takes an opposite position from this, we have
only one request to make and that is that he study the Bible. We
will not refer him to any particular book. .He may open it at ran
dom, either the Old or New Testament, and he will find that religion
was in the days of the Bible, a
life and no where so closely as in the teachings of Christ. Politics,
business, social affairs, the intimate things of life were almost with
out exception his themes. To make plain his teachings he took the
things most familiar to his hearers.
You have often heard it said that it does not do to mix religion
with politics or business. It is not a question of mixing them.
You can not separate the Christian religion from politics and busi
ness. Every true Christian carries his religion everywhere. He
can not put it on or off as he may desire. Christ mixed his religion
with politics, with business, with everything and it is impossible
for his followers to separate them. The moment you separate,
them, you are not a Christian.

Shoe manufacturers predict that an ordinary pair of shoes will

We have often noticed at the theatre that for an actor to say
damn or hell seems to amuse the audience more than anything
else, but a paragrapher when he runs short on ideas is handicapped
by the postal regulations and can not indulge in this high form of
wit and humor for the entertainment of his readers.
If you come home early you can slam the door and knock over
two or three chairs and no one will hear you or if they do the clock
won't strike for an hour. But if you come in late, even if the
hinges and lock are fre-shly oiled and work without a sound and the
door is closed gently and not a board squeaks and you do not touch
a thing, every member in the family hears you and every clock in
the house strikes the next minute.

Like most Important inventions, that
of tbe organ Is veiled Id mystery. The
invention of the organ has been at
tributed to Ctesiblus, a barber of Alex
andria, about 250 B. O.; also, to tbe cel

certain thnt tbe organ was brought to
Europe from the eastern or Greek em
