THE GENERAL JUDGMENT.
A Sermon Preached Rev. Dr.
Durbin, of New York, at the
Ninth-street Methodist Episcopal
Church.
L Tut 2d Timothy, tt chppter,
1st and 2d verses:
l. I charge thee, therefore, be
fore Qod and tho Lord Jsuh Christ,
who sball judge the quick and the
dead at Llis appearing and His
kingdom: ' '
.' "2. Teaoh the word ; be instant
in season and out of season; re
prove, rebuke, exhort with all long
suffering and doctrine .
Dr. Durbin said:
. Amid the busy pursuits ot life,
ia which , all are absorbed in this
land at this time. we are' liable to
forget the. weightier matters of re
lrgion,' and a future life. Indeed,
the doctrine of a general judg
ment, in which men shall give an
account of all their deeds in this
world, has almost lost its place in
the world. It is even rare now for
a minister to speak of it,
. 1 have been accustomed to visit
the city occasionally for the last
forty years, and to preach when
here, and every time I come among
you l am told o some one who
has djed some man or woman
who has fallen, under the weight of
years, or some man in the vigor of
life, and in the midst of its active
duties, or some young man in the
bloom of health,' with brilliant
prospect for the future, has gone
to the grave, and to that Judgment
to which you' and I must finally go.
Is it then strange that I should feel
like warning you, and asking your
serious attention to. the subject f
Increasing years admonish me that
I may never ,returnto discharge
this duty again. Let me, there
fore, drop one word of exhortation
in your ears, to think seriously of
a Judgment, J Let me, in the words
of our text, Charge thee before
Qod, and our Lord Jesus . Christ,
who li all judge the quick and the
4ead.;C:,v ,--'v w:?
' ' The , first: question that, arises in
the consideration of our subject
ier: who. shall; be the judge; Irheri
we'are called upon to give'aa ac
connt before, oar' God Almighty,
t)ie niaker and . preserver, ot men.
The j adge. is tcf be, onr Lord 'Jesus
GhrW ,Jf we search, the ScrJp
tiiresC carefuHy; from the Evangel
ists , to Revelations, wd will find it
distinctly . atatedT; . WherevCT the
Judgment ia spoken of, that we are
tr. be Judged .by - ouf.. Lord Jesus
Christ IThis you must not forget.
We are not to be judged by God
tie' father. Jh plain language of
tfte .JJible is, "The Father juogetn
nq; jjaab, but : hath 'committed, all
judgment unto the Son." !;
f It i8 natui al - fot vns . to inquire
why 0odvhas- thus committed all
judgment;, unto the . Son ! :,"When,
ia the) fuJr state, woare permit:
ted to see things from the begin
ning to the end, all things that are
now mysterious, : because we can
.not understand them, will appear
peneciiy reasonable. Jhere ,. are
many things which we can not now
understand, and here is the princi
pal difference between orthodol
Christians and those whom we re:
gard as not orthodox :. We are
willing ( to receive some doctrines
that are beyond our understand
ing,' and they are disposed to reject
wnai can not be comprehended by
human reason. But to the ques
tion; Why are we to be judged
Dy uie Jsoni we have an an&wer in
the Bible. . It is not always that
questions are so clearly answered
here. He is to be our Judge be
cause he is the Son of Man. .But
the question then arises, why is
uus a reason ior nis toeing our
judge. , The Scriptures further an
ewer, because, being the Son of
JVian, he is touched mux every feel
ing of our infirmities. He knows
what we need. That is the reason
why he is. to be our judge, And I
say, with due reverence to God the
Father, let me be judged by the
Son of Man i because I can explain
to him why I was tempted in this
way and that, for he was tempted
as we are. I can understand his
communications to me.' Take away
the incarnation, and this consolins
hope of being judged by one who
can understand and feel with us is
lost. , . ' ;
The 6econd inquiry in our dis
course is, who are to be the sub
jects of the Judgment! The text
says the quick and dead are to.be
judged. I will explain these words,
44 quick and dead,'$ so that you wilj
never forget Hiem, for the illu8tra:
tion will be so simple. , Cast your
eyes around you, on this assembly,
and you see the quickthe living-,
then go out to your beautiful cemetery,
and-behold the dead are)
there. " 'These words mean just. ex
actly living and dead, and nothipg
more. These, then, are the . sub
jects whom our Lord Jesus Christ
shall judge..-;. . 1; , -;t-.The
dead . have ' passed -the
bounds of.responsfbnityr Tli'eir
destinies are fixed. But before me
this morning are the quick. They,
too, must go to heaven or. to hell.
But your destinies are yet in your
own hands. . You are all to go to
Judgment. That is clear. But
what your fates will be after that,
depends on your conduct while
living. IN ot withstanding these
facts are made clear in the Scrip
tures, men will not give them heed.
They are slow to realize and 'act
upon them.
. In reference to this indisposition
on the part of men to believe such
truths, wo have this remarkable
language in the Bible : " For as
in the days' before the flood, they
were" eating and drinking, and
marrying and giving in . marriage,
until the day that Noah entered
the Ark; . and know' not until the
flood came and took them all away.
So shall also the coming of the Son
of Man be." ; , The people in the
days of Noah,' did not believe the
flood would come.' They kept on
eating and drinking, even after the
waters began to descend. They
said, it will stop to-morrow. They
would not believe till the flood car
ried them away. ' How' many im
mortal souls, are here this morning,
young,; active, fond of pleasure, or
ardent in the : pursuit of wealth,
giving np thought to a Judgment ?
I charge you, as a ' Minister of
Christ, to pause, and. give one ser
ious thought, to that Judgment to
which we must all go. Vhen the
day of Judgment comes, 1 have no
doubt it will, find Cincinnati as bu
sy and as thoughtless as it is now.
Now let us turn our attention to
the nature and scope of that Judg
ment. For what . are we to be
judged ? In ray. very earliest relig
ious life, which began at sixteen or
: i i .1 j 1 1
seventeen yeuts uiu, notning in my
Scriptural reading . touched, my
miad80 deeply as the fey? words,
"For, every , idle word a man shall
speak shall be given an account
to uoa.",, ; lnese. words, lollowed
m w
me through, ooyhooa. . inf t more
responsible , manhood,, and when
tempted into any improper expres
sion the words have- come,, up be
fore me in fearful distinctness.", I
could not get rid of them, and, tljey
cbme.to day, and ring; '.in bay ears.
"For every , idle word" ; spoken an
account must be rendered to God.
Men have made no greater mistake
than. , to' suppose that idle . words
were" trifling, in their results.', The
character ' and condition of the
world has turned upon idle words.
Becau of .tfceiP,' ; ves.bobeea
sacrificed. - No man can calculate
tue euttvt oi his worus. ine judg
ment will take them up as the
foundation of evils. The treat du
ty of life Is to be so careful in our
language that no idle word shall be
spoken.1 How great is the respon
sibili ty of statesmen and politicians
in this respect? Perhaps you have
never thought of this matter, or
nave regarded words and acts of a
political .character as not subject
to be1 measured by morals, and
tnerelore not subject of judgment.
But not enly the facts, but the ef
fects of our political life, will be
scrutinized in the Day of Judg-
jnenr. Suppose your acts and
words, thought apparently triflling
in themselves, have brought pov
erty and distress , on.-, others, or
have encouraged pride and wick
edness, is the man who hab been
the author of these results to be
discharged simply because he is a
politician? Ihave sometime thought
there was wanting some further in
structions in the Scriptures on the
responsibility of men, from whose
apparently trifling acts and words
great evils have resulted. ' '
Let ns now, for a lew moments,
notice some of the circumstances
connected with the Judgment, and,
first , of all 1 desire you to divest
your minds of the notion, that the
Judgment is too mysterious for the
comprehension of the human mind.
Iknow that, in the early ' vears of
myuie, Awas disposed to invest
tho subject with mysteries beyond
piy reach. ' But for the last thirty
years of i my lifer I have regarded
the Scripures and the Christian re
ligion as part of human experience;
and I : read the Bible as I would
read any other book, taking into
consideration, the different circum
stances under which it was written.
And in its interpretation, I apply
the same i rules that I do in inter
preting other books. -I claim that
it comes clearly within , tho circle
and domain of haman. experience.
If such is the case, ' why can not a
Christian be just a& certain in his
ctmprehension of Scriptural doo-
triues as he can of worldly allairs t
rwish youto taw -this' 'inquiry
home with you and examine it
There used to be a class of men in
Cincinnati, and they may be here
yet, who refused to receive any
thing that their reason could hot
approve.. : They thought reliirion
did not come within the domain of
human, experience and reason. I
may turn aside a little further by
saying that since abandoning my
early visionary ideas of Judgment
and religion, and adopting, . as my
basis of interpretation, human ex
perience, 1 have read and could
read a hundred thousand times,
with renewed joy, "That having re
ceived the : spirit of adoption,
whereby we cry Aba, Father, (that
is my Father), the spirit itself bear
ing witness with our spirit that we
are the children of God. There is
no mystery about this passage. We
receive the spirit of adoption,
whereby, we cry Aba, Father. Why
should we call God our Father if
he is not such? The spirit beareth
witness with, our Spirits that we
are the children of God. I say af
ter many1 years experience of my
own," and after hearing the exper
ience ; of others, I am here this
morning to say that the doctrines
of the Christian religion, are with
in the domain of human experience
and as easily understood as any
other part of human experience.
The Christian may with certainty
say, "1 know that my Kedeemer
liveth." . Such has been Christian
experience in all ages of the world
The Christian, may 'say I know, I
feel that I am a child of God. How
does he know it ? The answer is
by his experience, just as you know
ordinary things' connected with the
world. You men of the world have
no right to deny the experience of
the Christian, because you-know
nothing about it. Having now di
vested myself of these visionary
views of the Judgment, I have
learned to comprehend it as a part
of human experience. . ,'
The first circumstance ot the
Judgment is the' fact that the Lord
Jesus Christ is to be the Judge.
And what shall be his appearance?
When I was at Jerusalem, in 1843,
I went 'j out, one.' day, 'to' Mount
Olivet and was .shown a footprint
on a stone,; in front of the. mount
ain. : Tradition said this -was made
by, the last step the Lord and Mas
ter took on the earth. : rom this
Joint he had ascended into-Heaven,
will not stop to. inquire whether
the traditidn is true or false,' but
this book tells me that while He
stood there and talked 'with ' His
disciples, a sweet spell rested on
all in the holy presence, and they
were so wrapped and aborbed in
the fullness of bliss, that they did
notobserve.when He departed from
them ; and, while they . stood thus
entranced, .and gazing up into
Heaven, an angel . said to them
"Ye men of Galilee,-why stand ye
here, gazing op into Heaven f ; Tills
same Jesus which is taken up from
you into Heaven shall, so come in
like manner aa ye have -seen Him
go into Heaven.' Now the Judg
ment rests upon the fulfillment of
this declaration; and the Apostle
Paul tells us exactly how it will be
fulfilled that the ; Lord Jesus
Christ shall descend from Heaven,
with the voice of the archangel's
trump. The dead in Christ shall
rise first This is not figurative.
You will find it a stern reality. Ti e
Lord Jesus .'shall descend ' from
Heaven with a shout and the voice
of the archangel's trump, intlica
tive of bis divine authority. There
is one circumstance connected
with this descent of the Judge, to
which few have given attention.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is represent
ed as ; coming from Heaven, and
approaching i the earth ; . but he
stops m , mid-heavens. . St Paul
says the dead iu Christ shall rise
first, and we shall be caught up in
to the air to meet our Lord. : These
words' can not be figurative. ' They
are literal ; "and so shall ever be
with the Lord." : ' ;, ' : ! : .
' The next circumstance of the
Judgment after the descent of the
Lord Jesus, is the. resurrection of
the dead. The dead in Christ shall
rise first .The Apostle Taul tells
us that the dead shall be raised
and the living changed.,. , This
change will only be necessary for
the living. .The. dead will have un
dergone the change in their graves.
Thus the whole, human family .will
stand before, the Judgment seat
We can not fully comprehend : why
the dead in Christ shall be raised
first, but this we can understand,
"the dead ehall be raised, they that
have done good to the resurrection
of life,' and : they . .that .have done
evi! to the 'tesnrreetiotvof darnna-t
tion." While the destiny of : tbe
goodis made plaiti,we are not inform
ed as to the condition and destiny
of .the wicked. Their immortality,
condemnation and future misery
are made clear, but under what
conditions is not explained.
The last circumstance connected
with the Judgment to which we
call attention, is the destruction oi
our earth by conflagration. In re
gard to the doctrine of a general
conflagration of the earth, there
has been a wonderful change in the
minds of philosophers during the
past few years. Fiity years ago
we would hardly have found one of
these wise men, who call them
selves natural philosophers, that
would have admit tedTor a moment
the possibility of a conflagration
of the earth. I do not speak ir
reverently of natural philosophers,
for when such a man is a Christian
he makes the best kind of a Chris
tian' but us a general thing, fifty
years ago, to have spoken to one
of these wise men of the world be
ing burned up, would have elicited
a "smile of incredulity, if not pity.
He would have answered, "that
will do very wed to terrify men,
but the idea is absurd." But what
of their opinions to-day? I may
say in the language of one ot them,
and a very . prominent one, too,
"That instead of the doctrine of a
general conflagration being ' ab
surd, the great mystery is that the
world is not burned up every hour ;
and the tact of its not occurring
can only be attributed to the inter
position of Divine government."
What, I ask, is the earthquake ! It
is nothing more nor less than the
violent' agitation produced by the
escape ot gas and steam ' thrown
out by the intense internal heat of
the earth.;: Have you ever' stood
by a steam boiler and observed the
agitation produced by the escape
oi steam through the safety-valve ?
This is only a faint type of the
the teirible agitation' produced. in
the earth by the escape of heated
gasseB and steam through its apper
ture?. . It is now demonstrated to
the satisfaction of the scientific
world, that the center of the earth
is in the highest state of ignition,
and the ccol and solid part in which
we live i3 a mere crust. ' This in-,
ternal- heat is made apparent by
boring a few hundred feet into the
earth: When the Lord Jesus shall
descend, that Divine power which
now holds these forces in, check,
will bo let loose, and the earth will
be burned up. This doctrine of &

general conflagration is not simply
a matter of revelation, it is a mat- .;

the last three months astronomers

Judgment? . We will part, now.- -Some

tney nave passed the boundary of

fixed. You may be there , a year

During the sitting of a court in .
Connecticut not long ago, on a -very
cold evening, a crowd of law: '.
yers had collected around the open ,
fire that blazed cheerfully on tho V
hearth ,in the bar-room, when a
traveler entered benumbed 'with . '
cold ; but no one moved t6 give
hini room to warm his shins, so he
leaned against the wall iu the. back
part of the room. . . .
Presently a smart young limb of
the law addressed him, and the fol
