HAVE NO RIGHT TO
REBUKE THE WORLD
The view Taken By a Meth?
odist Minister of the Du
tlcs of the Preachers.
That ministers of the gospel have no
right to rcbuko Iho world for tho slns
of omtsalon and commission is tha oplnion
oxpressed Sunday ovenlng by tiio Rev. K.
M. Maxey ln a scrmon dellvcred by him
at tho Asbury Methodist Church, ot
whicli ho is tho pastor,
Mr. Maxey wns discimslng the very ln
terestlng question of "Tho nuties nnd
Frerogatlvcs of tho Mlnlstry," a subject
which hns galncd moro or less
prominence here reeontly, In tho con?
struction of his thonght ho dlvlcjed nll
rnen Into two classos-those In tho church
and those out of tho uliurcti, or of the
world. Tho church. lio said, has placod
ltself under tho curo and guldanqo of tbe
mlnlstry; tho world hon not, There
should tliorefore be u illrference In the
liuuiner ln which a preocller should np
pro'itch tho two. Tlie fnct that there
slnmld ho such n dlfferenco ls uphelil liy
riyht, expedlcncy, courlosy, nml sorlpturo.
Followlng out this thought, Mr, Maxey
dcelared that ln tho church, a mlnlstot
hns a right tn reprovo, to rebukn nnd ex
hort. In tho world ho has no such right.
Ilvrc ho must bo an evangollst, lio nuist
neck to Icad men and lo porsuitdo innn.
but thero ho must stnp.
lt ls not |)ls-prlvllego hero to rcbuko.

Kerr, for meddllng with polltlcs, and ha
repeated tho olinrgo mado at tho Judg

Pllnto ncqultted him, saylng ho foiuid oo
fault in him, for Chrlst had told 1'llate
that ho waa a king, but that his klngdom
?was not of this world. "I como to bear

In the second place, Dr. Kerr sold,
there wero two things that Chrlst mearnt.
First of nll, that His klngdom was not
of this world, not tx wordly but a splrlt
u-al klngdom. lt hnd to do Crat of all
with man's relation to God, and, nocntid.
ly, with His relation to his fellow-man.
It had no material rewards nnd piuilsh
ments and nothlng to do dlrectly with
worldly klngdoms. In tho second place,
lt was propngatod only by tho truth. Ho
como Into the world to bear witnoss lo
tho truth and thus establlsh His klng?
Tho commission to the church nnd to
the pulpit, said Dr. Kerr, Is to preach
the Gospel to overy creaturo, tenchlng
them to observe all things whatsoever I
havo eommandod you. Tho Gospel, then,
la whatsoever Chrlst com-mnn?j<d by word
or doed. In his life, tenchlngs, denth and
rosurrectlon. Tlio apostles prefrnhed no
polltlcs, but St Paul said. "I dotermtned
to know nothlng among you snve Jesus
Ohrlst and Him crucli'ie.d." And from

Church, said Dr. Kerr, has everythlng

But If a political party bo organized, or
government measuro adopted for a moral
reform, the ministers have nOtlilng to do

"Wo must go on as over." lie said,
preaching tho moralB of Chrlst's law,
ln concluslon, Dr. Kerr contended thn*
tho war between tho Siates wns brought
on In part by political preaching. In tho
