Hunting afternoon, and I wish to commend
the statement thnt Deemed to Iiethe central
nlm of Ills terniou. Ills text was from Jno.
8:14, Mr. Moody1! fuvorlte text after he had
been converted by Henry Vnrley, of Kim
land. Mr. Moody had prcachrd for jenrs
that (lod hated sinners, but when be heard
Mr. Varlcy preach on "God so loved the
world Hp gave HH only begotten son that
whosoever belleveth In Him should not
perish but have everlasting life," he said
that he learned that Ood loved the sinner
but bated the sin.
In speaking of thefultu that saves the
soul, Mr.Turkington said It was not simply
fattbortbe head but of the heart, while It
Included Intelligence of the brain It must
go deeper. It must lie of the heart; and In
order to Illustrate bis meaning, he said, an
Intellectual belief was like the man, who,
when told that If he would first dip his band
n water another man could pour melted
lend over his hand without burning lilin, he
sulci. "I bellove you." but that thefnlthof
the heart that trusted was seen In the act
of the woman, who, when told the same
tiring, immediately thrusting her hand Into
water prenenleil It for the hot melted load
and It rolled off like water from a duck's
lck. Thus be said tho faith that trust
(lod must lie first put Into nctlim. This. It
seems to me. Is the essenco of a true reli
The question thnt naturally occurs to an
Intelligent, honest mnn Is, what act Ion does
Owl now require of everyone hen he first
believe with his heart unto righteousness?
If this could I simplified so thnt all of our
good nelghliors could read It In the same
words at thr same time In the same place
with Jesus Christ personally present and
seen by all, as the twelve apostles saw Hint
when He said In Mark I61IA, "He that lie.
Iletethand Is baptised shnll lie saved." whnt
would thry allsay? If they bad heard Christ
tell the apostles the words of Matthew's
if os pel sth chapter and 1Mb esse, 'Tlo,
make declplesof all nations, Imptlslng them.
What would they iigreo a4 the act follow
Ing Immediately upon teaching nod faith?
If they had heard Jesus speak to that
honorable senator, of Jerusalem, as record
oil in Jno. II;, "Ktcept a mnn be lorn of
wnter and of the Spirit he cannot enter In
to the kingdom ufdod." whnt would they
nllngree was the first act of the mnn whose
mind bad been Impregnated by the Holy
Spirit through the preaching of the Word
of find? before he could enter Into covenant
relations with (lod In Ills Kingdom or
church on earth. If they had heard Jesus
tell the apostles what lAike records In Jilh
chapter and ITtb terse., "That repentance
and remission of sins should lie preached In
His name ninongall nations beginning at
Jerusalem." would they not nllngree thnt
Jerusalem was the place to learn how to
preach and practice In the name of Christ
and not the rtter Jordan nor the sermon on
the mount? And If they all had been with
the apostles at Jerusalem on the day of
I'entecost when (lod and Christ loth spoke
by the Holy Spirit through Peter, and they
heard the same words that are written In
Acts I-Ss. "Itepent and lie baptised every
one of you In the name of Jesus Christ for
the remission of sins and you shall receive
the gift of the Holy Spirit." what would
they all agree was the act following repent
ance, necessary to obtain remission of sins
and the gift of the Holy Spirit?
And If they had all seen I.ufcc write the
words found In Acts 1:41, "Then they that
received bis ( Peter's) word wero baptised."
what would they all agree was the act Im
mediately following their faith In Peter's
word by which they were united to the
family or church of tiod? If fnlth only be
comes "saving faith" when It Is put Into ac
tion, as the brother suys, why cannot we all
agree In Jllckmnnaslo the act (iod requires
everyone to do In order to put his faith In
to action? Especially since we all have
read that Matthew olid Mark and Luke and
John and Peter In Acts JtfMl agree with
Christ that baptism In water or birth of
water Is the specified condition wherein
everyone must put his faith lntoactlon In
order to enter into the Kingdom of (iod.
And If we all as brethren of the same
family of one common Lord, could have
seen Peter write those wonderful words
In I Peter 3:?-SI, where referring to Noah
being saved by water and the ark, says
"The like figure w hereunto even baptism
doth also now sntn us, (not the putting
away the llUh of the flesh but the answer
of a good conscience.! by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ," would we not all hae
agreed thnt wnter baptism In soma divine
way wrought a good conscience In every
one who having faith In the resurrection
of Jesus Christ, thus, put his faith Into

Thousand Dollars Raised.
Some time ago Cen. H. A. Tyler
promised lo donate SI, 000 to the
book fund of the Carnegie Library if
the citizens of Hickman would con
tribute a like amount. The Gener
al's liberal offer is now forthcoming,
as Prof. Gabby, assisted by the good
ladies of the city, have succeeded in
raising the amount necessary to
swing Gen. Tyler's donation.
Through the efforts and generosity
of the above memtloned, we are no
assured a splendid lot of books for
the new Iibrary-in fact, it will be one
of the few and best in Western Ken
tucky. It is hardly necessary to say here
that the people of Hickman appre
ciate the donation by Gen. Tyler and
others, and the efforts of Prof. Gab
by and his assistants In this worthy
cause. To them we are largely in
debted for this public Institution, of
which every citizen may justly feel
proud. We are indeed grateful to
all who assisted in any manner.
