THE APPEAL OF CHRISTIANITY
Tlio world In full of Hclliono. They lmro thrived with morn or
lens of racial mid sometimes of geographical characteristics niuc m an
lieeamo it thinking being. Hut Christianity, tho flower of Ilium nil,
in tho religion supreme, and in destined to ho tho religion universal,
we think, for its appeal is imiverHil.
lis appeal ih universal liecniim-, as Been in the earliest tradition,
as interpreted by Jesus himself, It is more a principle than a belief,
mid only principles are universal, Heliefs nro not and never can lie.
And being a principlo it was and is easily represented by four
words- character, lore, nervice, uttcrijtet . It was and is represented
in tlm life of Jesus, for ht was mid did what he taught others to be
The appeal of Christianity, then, when stripped of verbiage of
words that darken counsel is tho appeal of ri life rather than tho appeid
of a belief a life that can bo attained (Did Jesus ever hint other
wisoj1), a Character that may bo realized, a lore that must bo muni
fritted, a nervier that must a rendered, a Hiterifiee that is freely fp'vcit.
Here is something definite something that any ono can grasp.
There is not a bit of magic about it. The hocnn pocitn and the
lecrdermain are cast away for they are only of service to tho
ignorant. It is these and theso only that keep people in tho dark,
that shut out the light, Unit fouler division, thttt brrril neetarianisni.
Jesus never said one explicit word so fnr as nil body knows about
the (fur that reason) insignificant things that have rent Christendom.
Thu appeal is for conformity to a life, a standard of conduct, a
stature, mid not merely ton errrd mid n rile. And the criterion of
judgment is explicit ''Enter into thu jovs of your Loul, for I
was sick and in prison mid je visiled me ; I whs an hungered and yo
gave me meat ; 1 was athirst and yo gave me drink ; I was naked and
j i clothed me- in as much as ye did it unto the least of these my
brethren" In as much as your life conformed to my life in character
In the editor's childhood he lived in sight of two men whoselives
were an inspiration to tiobln manhood. Seeking to reach their stature,
ho saw the stature of Jesus "the life that was in Christ; the peat of
great price,"' mid lit; literally gave up nil for it. There was noth
ing mysterious about it. It was a decision in which the question of
purity or impurity was forever settled on the side of purity, the
question of selfishness or service and sacrilice, in favor of the latter;
in other words, as between n life of sin and the "life that was in
Christ," Hie former could frame no claim worthy of a moment's
consideration. And when the decision was made joy came - there
suit of a sense of oneness with him, an ethical union kindred to his
with the Father, and the expectation of being"with him where he in."
Such is the appeal of Christianity it n appeal from Hie one
mipreiiie life I ) life, and it is meeting with a hearty response in the
chapel meetings, as it alwnjs will.
President Frost's Sermon
At the Opening of the Gospel Meetings, Sunday Night
"The Pearl of Great Price"
Your prayerful atteiillcu is Invited
tonight to one of the shortest para
bles that Christ ever spoke two
verses, which concluded our Cospel
leading. "The kingdom of Heaven s
like unto a man that Is n merchant
seek in goodly pearls, and having
lound one pearl of great price, !i
went and sold all he had and bought
Suiely tho study of pearls will u I
popular with the young ladles hero I
tonight. We aro 'all lovers ot b,auty .
anil wo an' all lovers of vnlue. Now
our greed for beauty and tor value
sometimes leads us astray. Hut nf- .
ler all It is one of the distinctive
glories of human nature. No beast caiii
enjoy beauty, lie has no joy exe.'pt
the animal enjoyment. And no lieast i
lias a seiiai of value. Hu eats today
and tramples upon that which hi
will need tomorrow.
Man has higher faculties and can
sco valuo and beauty. Anil It Is lor
man not o;ily to seek beauty, but the ,
highest beauty, not only alue, but I
tho highest value. The earliest tax - '
ago who had the dawning of reason ,
lu li I in could admire beauty, hut It ,
was tho lowest forms which nttrac'
ed him. Th a difference between the j
suvugu and the wise man mirst be that i
the wise man craves the higher. You i
choose between a flower unit u gem.
'Many of us would chooso the flower. !
Its form Is perfect; Its color Is rich, j
Its perfume appeals to us even when
our eyes u'.o closed. Why should we j
not choose tlm flower? There Is on
sufficient renMin. The flower fades,
but tho gem will continue to Mied
Its boauty while the world lasts. Tlm (
Is tlm value of the gem. Ami th''.
gems that Ood has wonderfully mad '
and hidden In the dark pockets tf ,
the earth are symbols of things that I
nro eternal, If you ever read the 2Ut j
chapter, that wonderful chapter f
Revelation, where tho celestial city
Is M't forth, you know quite a lUt of
f,enis. "The foundations of th:1 walls
of tho city wero garnished with "ill
manner of precious stones. The fir.t
was Jasper; the second, sapphire; the
third, n chalcedony; tho fourth, mi
emerald; the fifth, sardonyx. (Wo
aro getting u wholo Jewell y ktoro
here!) tho sixth, sardlus; tlw seventh,
chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the
ninth, u topaz; the tenth, a chrysop
laBiis; tho eleventh, u jacinth; the
twelfth, an ainetliyst."
Many of us have never seen one of
these btoiies, hut 1 can show you
nu amethyst. Many years ugo one of
our great Kentucky Htntotinrii, fas
liis M. Clay, canto back from tho ,Mx'.
can War, and thu citizens of Tdndl
son ami Kayetto counties wished '.o
do him honor. He had saved their
sons from massacre at the hands of
the Mexicans and they caused a
sword to be made and presented to
General Clay. The blade and scab
bard wero skillfully engraved. The
hilt Is of solid silver. And then tiny
felt that the sword was not rich
enough to expres-s their gratitude and
admiration, and to give a great vnlu?
to that gift they put an amethyst in
the hilt. Clay grew old and now he
has passed away and nil the people
that subsciibetl for that gift, hut
the amethyst still sparkles. The
General gave his sword to L'erea Col
lege. Many of you havo seen It In
the library; but the amethyst was
too precious to be exiiosed there, so
Treasurer Osboine keeps It lu his
strong lox. I here Is the amethyst.
You can see Its glitter, the different
lacets which reflect the light, and
the color like a rose leaf. I do not
know the valuo of this gun; It may
bo worth $100, or $.")00, but It is worth
it whole garden of flowers.
And turning the page of the Uible,
wo me still in the celestial city.
"The twelve gates were twelve pearls;
every teveral gate was of one pearl.
Now theso things God made to glv
an Intimation and a type of things
Unit are unspeakable; things that can
never bo tId; things that we shall
learn about In eternity.
Now this stoiy, this puinble, Is a
very short one. There are three points
to be noted. In the first p'nee this
man who was a merchant SOUGHT
lor goodly pearls, He had a plan ami
a purpose in his pursuits. He set out
to find pearls rather than flowora or
anything else. Pearls was his pursuit,
and not only pearls, hut goodly peurN,
mid ho became, u connoisseur. Ho
looked through the collections tf
other merchant; kings nnd princes
showed him all they had. And In the
second place, he found something
greater than he expected. We don't
know where; It couldn't have been !n
the treasuries of any king, for a
king would nut have bold the peiul.
It nuibt have been In the boat of
boni diver, or In somo obscure cubln.
Ono day tho merchant started, and
his heuit beat loudl) ; ho Whs excited.
Ho salu, "Hery Is bouiothiiiK greater
than any thing I have ever t-ecu. Hero
Is something greater than the emper
or has seen; greater than uny mer
chant has over seen; greater, liouvlor,
moro lustrous, more precious." Ho
la tho third plain ho was resolute.
He went nwny ami sold all that lio
