MARX PHILOSOPHY IS
THEME IN THE PULPIT
Pastor Preaches on Aims of
F : ounder of Modern Socialism
OAKLAND, Nov. 3.— Rev. Herbert A.
Jump, pastor of the First Congrega
tional church, spoke this evening on
the life and aims of Karl Marx, whom
he called "a philosopher of bread find
"He has offered to the world an In
terpretation of the economic order
quite as comprehensive as Darwin ever
offered for the biological order." said
"Moat philosophers have dealt with
the omnipotent God and how he Imparts
bia being to the world; Marx dealt with
common man and how he get-s his liv
ing seven days in the week. It must
be admitted that the latter line of in
quiry secures a larger and more inter
est >'d audience than the former. The
head of man goes out on Quests foj
truth, the heart of man on quests for
lore, and the will of man on quests Cor
selt-exp te—lon in action; but the stom
-01 man goes out on quests iVn ,
throe meats a day. or as close an ap
proximation to that ideal as is possible.
The millions that follow the loaf are
far more numerous than the thousands
lh.it follow the gl^ain.
"Marx was the thinker Who tried to
solve the problems of the poor man's
kitchen and the rich man's factory.
Hence Marx's writings are eagerly read
in Chins and Japan, in Australia, and
Scandinavia: there are Karl Marx clubs
in Africa; his principles are being daily
interpreted to millions in a score of dif
ferent tnngijps. It may he stated truth
fully that no single writer of the last
century is so widely, so earnestly, so
thoughtfully being studied by armies
of readers as this son of a German
The speaker held that Karl Marx had
considered hut one side of the great
situation, namely the "bread and but
ter' , side, and that he ignored God in
"In this," said Jump, "he was faulty."
'•Marx asserted the economic basis of
all history. He believed that questions
of bread and butter have been the de
terminers of all social evolution. They
done much, but they have not
done all that has been done. The stODI
- important but the human soul is
more important: and in the providence
of God there has entered continuously
into the ongoings of his world an ele
ment that is not the product of eco
nomic forces, ("all it the spiritual ele
ment or the element of human will, or
personality as you please, but. God has
let loose mighty spirits in tbe course of
the years who have not been created
by their ago, but who have created
their age or a new and better age.
There is a God side, to history as well
a« a bread and butter side. And even
in the lives of ordinary men there have
mighty momenta and stupendous
hours of vision or struggle or heroism,
that were producers much more than
they were product. The race has moved
forward like a great sailing ship. Im
pelled in part by currents in the water
where she floats, but also in part by
invisible wind currents in the heavens.
The spirit bloweth where it listeth.
Marx in his exaltation of economic, law
placed no value upon religion; therein
his interpretation of the universe is
