DR. TALMAGFS SERMON
AT THE TABERNACLE-"A FAMILY
In Matters or Church Attendance Should
the Wife Go with the liusband or the
Hasbuud with, tl?? Wife??Tho Gonpc-1
Bhookly.v, Nov. 28.?The Rev. T. DeWitt
Tulmage, D! D., preached in the Brooklyn
Tnbernacle this morning on the subject: "In
Matters of Church Atter.danco Should the
Wife Go with the Husband or the Husband
Go with the Wife/" The tabernacle still re
tains the decoration of Thanksgiving day,
being specimens of American producta from
the north, south, east and west A vast con
gregation sang the opening hymn, beginning:
Come, let us join our friends above.
Who have obtuined the prize,
And on the eagle wings of love
To joys celestial rise.
For the greater part, the hymns used in
Dr. Tahnngo's church are old and familiar-,
and when the whole audience rises to sing,
led by Professor Ali, the cornetist, and Pro
fessor Henry Eyre Browne, the organist, the
effect is overpowering.
Dr. Tidinnge's text was from Genesis xiii,
8, t>. "Let there bo no strife, I pray thee, be
tween me and thee, und between my herdmen
and thy herdmen. Is not the whole land be
fore thee/" Dr. Talmago said:
Uncle and nephew, Abran; aud Lot, both
pious, both millionaires, and with such large
flocks of bleating sheep and lowing cattle
that their herdmen got into a fight, perhaps
about the best pasture, or ubout the best
water privilege, or because the cow of one
got hooked by the horns of the other. Not
their poverty of opportunity, but their
wealth, was tho causo of controversy between
these two inen. To Abrain, the glorious old
Bedouin sheik, such controversy seemed ab
surd. It was like two ships quarreling for
sea room in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
There was n vast reach of country, corn
fields, vineyards, harvests and plenty of
room in illimitable acreage. '"Now," says
Abram: "Let us agree to differ. Here are
tho mountain districts, swept by tho tonic
and sea breeze, and with wide reaching pros
pect, or there is the plain of the Jordan, with
tropical luxuriance. You may have either."
Lot, who was not as rich as Abram, and
might have been expected to take the second
choice, made the first selection, und with u
modesty that must have made Abram smile,
said to him: "You may have the rocks and
the fine prospect; 1 will take the valley of
the Jordan, with all its luxuriance of corn
fields, and the river to water the 'locks, and
thv genial climate, and the wealth immeasur
able." So the controversy was forever
Settled, and great souled Abram carried out
the suggestion of the text: "Let there be uo
strife, I pray three, between me and thee,
and between my herdmen and thy herdmen.
Is not the whole land l>efore thee?*'
Well, in this, tho last quarter of the Nine
teenth century, and in this beautiful land,
which was called America, after Atnericus
Vospuous, but ought to have been been
called Columbia, after its discoverer, Colum
bus, we have u wealth of religious privilege
and opportunity that ?* positively bewilder
ing. Churches of all styles of creeds, aud of
ell Stylit of governments, anjl all styles of
worship, and all styles of architecture. What
opulence of ecclesiastical opportunity! Now,
while in desolate regions there may bo only
one church, and it must be that or nothing,
in the cpuleut districts of this country, there
?-Kuc-1: a profusion that thero ought to be no
difficulty in making a selection. No light
about vestment.-:, or between liturgical or
lion liuirgi'-al adherents, or as to baptismal
mod'or a handful of water as compared
w ith a rivcrful. If Abram prefers to dwell
in the heights, where he can oulj' get a
sprinkling from the clouds, let him consent
that Lot have uli the Jordan in which to im
merse himself. "Let there be no strife, I
pray thee, between thee and me, and between
thy herdmen and my herdmen. Is not the
whole laud before thee?"
Espe-ialiy is it unfortunate when families
allow, at the breakfast, or dining, or tea ta
ble, angry discussion as to which is the best
church or denomination, one at one end of
the table saying he could not endure the
rigid doctrines of Presbyteriatiism, one ut
the other end responding that she never
C.rjid stand the forms of Episcopacy, and one
at one side of the table saying he did not
understand how anybody could bear the.
noise in the Methodist church, aud another
declaring all the Baptists bigots. There are
hundreds of families hopelessly split on cede
Biastk'istn, and in the middle of every discus
sion on such subjects there is a kindling of
indignation, and it needs some old father
Abram to come and put his foot on tho load
ed lusj before the explosion takes place, and
say: "Let there be no strife, I pray thee, lie
tweea me and thee, and between my herd
men and thy herdmen. Is not the whole
land before theof"
I undertake a subject never before under
taken in any pulpit, for it is an exceedingly
delicate subject, aud if not rightly handled
might give serious offense: but I approach it
without the slightest trepidation, for I am
sure 1 have the Divine direction in tho
mat Lei's I propose to present. It is a tremen
dous question, asked all over Christendom,
often asked with tears and sobs anil heart
breaks, and involving the peace of families,
the eternal happiness of many souls: In
mallei's ??(' church attendance, should tho
wife l-.-i with the husband, or the husband go
witii the wife?
First, renii ud?or that all the evangelical
churches h.tve enough truth in them to save
the soul iui] i-ivpare us for happiness ou earth
and iii heaven. I wiii go with you into any
wed seie ted theological library, und I will
show you sermon-: from ministers in all de
nominations that set forth man as a sinner
and Chri.-t asa deliverer f rom sin and sorrow.
That is the whole gosjiel. < let that into your
soul und you are i.lied lor the here and the
hereafter. The world has twenty-six letters
in its alphabet, and there are only I wo letters
;n tlie?-.! alphaixt?Sand C: S standing for
our ?in. C standing for Christ, our rescue,
blosse I be IIis glorious name forever! In any
Church where you can thoroughly karn these
two letters, and all they stand for, you might
to be edified und happy. There are differ
ences, we admit, and some denominations wo
like better than others. But suppose three
or four of u.; make solemn agree
ment to meet ?i !i other a week
from HOW in Chicago on important business,
and one goes by the New York Central rail
road, another by the Erie railroad, another
by the Pemisylvunia railroad, another by the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad. One goes this
way. because the mountains are grander;
another takes this, because the curs are more
luxurious: another that, because the speed
is greater: uuothiT takes the oilier, because
be has long boon accustomed to that route,
and all the employes are familiar. So far as
our engug :iu-n: to meet is concerned, it
make- no ? !.;'.* :vuce if we only ;-vt there.
Now, any i?ne of the innumerable evangel
ical denominations, if you practice its teach
ing?although some of their trains run on a
broad gauge, und some on u narrow gauge
will bring you out at the city of the New
It being evident that you Trill bo safe in
any of the evangelical denominations, I pro
ceed to remark, first: If one of the married
couple bo a Christian and tho other not, tho
one a Christian is bound to go anywhere to a
church where the unconverted cooipauion is
willing to go, if he or she will go to no other.
You, of the connubial partnership, are a
Christian. You are safe for the sides. Then
it Ls your first duty to secure tho eternal
safety of your lifetime associate. Is not the
everlasting welfare of your wife impenitent,
or your husband impenitent, of" more im
portance than your church relationship! Is
not the residence of your companion for the
next quadrillion of yean a mightier considera
tion to you than the gratification of your
ecclesiastical tasto for forty or fifty years?
A man or a woman that would stop
half a minute to weigh preferences us
to whether he or she had better go with the
unconverted companion to this or that
church or denomination has no religion at
all, and never has had, and I fear never will
have. You are loaded up with what you
suppose to be religion, but you are like Capt.
Frobisher, who brought back from his voy
ago of discovery a shipload of what he sup
posed valuable minerals, yet instead of being
silver and gold, were nothing but common
stones of tho field, to be hurled out Anally as
useless. Mighty God! In all Thy realm is
thero one man or woman professing religion,
yet so stolid, so unfitted, so far gono unto
death that thero would bo any hesitancy in
surrendering all preferences before such an
opportunity of salvation aud heavenly re
union? If you, a Christian wife, arc an attend
ant upon this Brooklyn Tal>emacle, and your
unconverted husband does not come here, be
cause he does not like its preacher, or its
music, or its architecture, or its uncomfort
able crowding, and goes not to any house of
worship, hut would go if you would accom
pany him somewhere else, change 3'our
church relations. Take your hymn book
home> with you to-day. Say good-b}' to
your friends in tho neighboring pews, and go
with him to 0213' one of a hundred churches,
till his soul is s?"cd and he joins you in tho
march to heaven. More important than that
ring on the third finger of your left hand,
it is, that your Heavenly Father command
the angel of mercy concerning your husband
at bis conversion, as in the parable of old:
"Put a ring on his hand/'
No letter of mure importance ever came to
the great city of Corinth, situated on what
was called the "Bridge of the Sea," aud
glistening with sculpture, und gated with a
style of brass the magnificence of which the
following ug-.*s have not been able successfully
to imitate, and overshadowed by the ACTO
Corinthus, a fortress of rock 2,000 feet high?
I say no letter ever came to that great city'
of more importance than that letter in which
Paul puts tha two startling questions: "What
knowest thou, oh wife, whether thou shalt
save thy husband? Or how knowest thou,
oh :nun, whether thou shalt save thy wife?"
The dearest sacrifice or. the part of the one is
cheap if it rescue tho other. Better go to tho
smallest, weakest, most insignificant church
on earth, and be co-partners in eternal bliss,
than pass your earthly mem!?ership in most
gorgeously attractive church while your
companion stays outside of evangelical privi
lege. Better have the drowning saved by a
scow or sloop than let him or her go down
whilo you sail by in tho gilded cabins of a
Britannic or a Great Eastern.
Second remark: If both of the murried
couple lie Christians, but one is so naturally
constructed that it is impossible to enjoy tho
services of a lenticular denomination, and
tho other is not so sectarian or punctilious,
let the one less particular go with the other
who is very particular. As for m)-self, I feel
as much at homo in one denomination of
evangelical Christians as another, and I
think I must have"hcon born very near tho -
line. I like the solemn roll of the Episcopal
liturgy, und I like tho spontaneity of the
Methodists, and I hko the importance given
to the ordinance of Baptism by the Baptists,
and I like the freedom of the Congrcga
tionalists, and I like the government
and the sublimo doctrine of the
Presbyterians, und I like many of the
others just as good as any I have mentioned,
and I could happily live and die, and preach,
and be buried from any of them. But others
are born with so stout and unbending and
inexorable a liking for some denomination
that it is a positive necessity they have the
advantage of that one. Whit they were in
tended to bo in ccclcsiasticism was written 1
in the sides of their cradle, if the father and
mother had eyes keen enough to see
it They would not stop crying until I
they had put into their hands as
playthings n Westminster Catechism or
the Thirty-nine Articles. The whole cur- |
rent of their temperament and thoucht and 1
character runs into one sect of religionists as 1
naturally as the James river into the j
Chesapeake. It would bo n torture
to such pei-sons to be anything outside of
that one church. Now, let the wife or bus- !
band who is not so constructed sacrifice the
milder preference for the one more inflexible
and rigorous. Let the grapevine follow the
rugosities and sinuosities of the oak or 1
hickory. Abrain, the richer in flocks of I
Christian grace, should say to Lot, who is
built on a smaller scale: "Let there bo no 1
strife, I pray thee, between 1110 and thee, and 1
between my herdmeu and thy horebnen. Is i
not the whole land before thee?" Asyoti can
be edified and happy anywhere, go with your ;
companion to the church to which he or she
must go or lie miserable.
Remark the third: If both the married
Couple are very strong in their sectarianisms,
let them attend the different churches pre
ferred. It is not necessary that you attend
the same church. Religion is between your
conscience and your Cod. Liki Abrain and
Lot, agree to differ. When on Sabbath morn
ing you come out of the door of your homo
together, and one goes one way and the Other
the other, heartily wish each other it good
sermon and a time of profitable devotion, and
when you meet again at tho noonday repast
let it be evident each to each, and to your
children, and to the hired help, that you have
both been 0:1 the Mount of Tnuisfiguration,
although you went up by different paths, and
that you have both been fed by the bread of
life, though kneaded by different hands, in
different truys, and baked in different ovens.
"i'.ut how about the children?"' I am often
asked by hundreds of parents. Let them
also make their choice. They will grow up
with reverence for both the denominations
represented by father and mother, if you,
by holy livgs, commend those denominations.
If the father lives the better life, they will
have the more favorable opinion of his de
nomination. If the mother lives the better
life, they will have the more favorable j
opinion of her denomination. And some
day both the parents will, for at least ono
service, go to the same church. The neigh
bors will say: "I wonder what is going on
to-day, for 1 saw our neighbor and his wife,
who always go to different churches, going
arm in arm to the same sanctuary;" Well, I
will tell you what has brought them
together, arm in arm, to the same altar.
Something very important has happened.
Their son is to-day uniting with the church.
He is standing in the aisle taking the vows
of a Christian. He had been somewhat way- ,
word, and gave father and mother a e,ood
deal of anxiety, but their prayers have been i
answered in his conversion, and as he standa
hi the aisle aud the minister of religiou says:
"Do you consecrate yourself to the God who
made and redeemed you, and do you promise
to serve him all your days?"' and with manly
voice ho answers "I do." There is an April
shower in the pew where father and mother
sit, and a rainbow of joy which arches both
their souls, that makes all differences of creed
infinitesimal. And tho daughter who had
been very worldly, and gay, and thoughtless,
puts her life on the altar of consecration, and
as tho sunlight of that Sabbath streams
through the church window and fulls upon
her brow and cheek, she looks like their other
daughter, whose face was lununed with tho
brightness of another world, on the day when
tho Lord took her into Iiis heavenly keeping
years ago. '
I should not wonder if, after all, these
parents pass the evening of their life in the
same church, all differences of church pref
erence overcome by the joy of being in the
house of God where their children were pre
pared for usefulness and heaven.
But I can give you a recipe for ruining
your children. Angrily contend in- the
household that your church is right and tho
church of your companion is wrong. Bring
sneer und caricature to emphasize your opin
ions, aud your children will make up their
minds that religion is a sham, and they will
have none of it. In the northeast storm of
domestic controversy, the rose of Sharon and
the lily of the valley will not grow. Fight
h bout apostolic succession, fight aboutelection
and free agency, fight about baptism, fight
about the bishopric, tight about gown and
sui-pliee, and the religious prospects of your
children will be left dead on the field. You
will be as unfortunate as Charles, duke of
Burgundy, who in battle lost a diamond the
value of a nation, for in your fight you will
lose the jewel of salvation for your entire
household. This is nothing against the ad
vocacy of your own religious theories. Use
all forcible argument, bring all telling illus
tration, array all demonstrative facts, but
let there l>o no acerbity, no stinging retort,
no mean insinuation, no superciliousness, as
though all others were wrong and you in
Take a hint from astronomy. The Ptole
maic system mndo the earth the center of
the solar system, and everything was thought
to turn round tho earth. But the Copernicon
s3-stem came, and made 'die sun the center,
around which the planets revolved. Tho
bigot makes Ins little belief the center of
everything, but the largo souled Christian
makes the Son of Righteousness the center,
and all denominations, without any clashing,
and each at its own light aud in its own
sphere, revolving around it. Over the tomb
of Dean Stanley in Westminster abbey is
the passage of .Scripture: "Thy command
ments are exceeding broad." Let no man
crowd us on to a path like the bridge AI
Sirat, which the Mohammedan thinks leads
from this world over the abyss of hell into
paradise, tho breadth of the bridge less than
the web of a starved spider or the edge of a
sword or razor, ofT the edges of which many
fall. No; while the way is not wide enough
to take with us any of our sins, it is wide
enough for all Christian believers to pass
without peril into everlasting safety.
But do not any of you depend upon what
you call a sound creed for salvation. A man
may own all tho statutes of the state of New
York, and yet not be a lawyer, and a man
may own all the best medical treatises, and
not be a physician; and a man may own all
the best works on painting and architecture,
and not be either painter or architect; and a
man may own all the sound creeds in tho
world, and yet not bo a Christian. Not
what 3'ou have in }'our head and on your
tongue, but in your heart and in your life,
will decide everything.
In olden times in England, beforo tho mod
ern street lamps were invented, every house
holler was : xpected to have a lantern sus
]tended in front of his house, and the cry of
the Watchmen in London as they went along
at eventide was: "Jiang out your lights!-'
Instead of disputing in your home about the
different kinds of l?utern, as a watchman on
the walls of Ziou 1 cry: "Let your light so
shine before men that they, seeing your good
works, may glorify your lather which is in
heaven." Hang out your lights! You may
have a thousand ideas about religion, and yet
not the great idea of pardoning mere}*. It is
not the number of your ideas, but the great
ness of them. A mouse hath t-.n offspring in
her nest, while the lioness hath one in her lair.
All ideas about forms and ceremonies and
church government put together are not
worth the one idea of getting to heaven your
self and taking your family with you.
But do not reject Christianity, as many do,
because there are so many sects. Standing
in Westminster hotel, London, I looked out
of the wiatlow and saw three clocks, as near
as I can remember, one ou the Parliament
house, another on St. Margaret's chapel,
another on Westminster abbeys nil(' they
were all different. One said 12 o'clock at
noon, another said 11:55, another said 12:06.
I might as well have concluded that there is
no such thing OS time, because the three time
pieces were different, as for you to conclude
that there is no such thing us pure Christian
ity because the churches differ in their stite
nicnt of it It is about 12 o'clock noon, of
the glorious Gospel dispensation, although
the church clocks somewhat differ, and under
the present light you have no excuse for
neglecting your dn'.y because you do not like
this or do not like that. "How shall we
escape if wo neglect so great .salvation.'"'
But let us all rejoice that, although part
of our family may worship on earth in one
church, and part in unother church, or
bowed at tile same altars, it must be in a
compromise of preferences, we ure, if re
deemed, on the way to perfect church, where
ull our preferences will be fully gratified.

MACON MEDICINE COMPANY,
l-lx-fiov. a. H. Stephens' Cousin.
1 am first cousin of the late Ex-Governoi
Alexander II. Stephens, and have been
postal clerk on different railroads since
1808. For ten years I have been a sufferer
from a cancer on my face, which grew
worse until the discharge of mailer became
profuse and very offensive. I became
thoroughly disgusted with blood purifiers
and pronounced them humbugs, as I had
tried many without relief.
Finally "I was induced to use 11. 15. 1!.,
which was about the 1st of February, and
continued its use until the latter part of
April. The offensive discharge decreased
at once and the hardness around the cancer
disappeared. It improved my general
health and I rapidly gained llesh and
Strength. The discharge gradually de
creased and the cancer became less and less .
in size until nothing remains except a scar
to tell the tale of a once dangerous cancer.
All who have seen nie since 1 have com
menced the use of E. R. 15. bear testimony
of my great improvement, and the scar on
my lace shows that it cured the cancer. I
find that R. R. 15. comes squarely up to
what it is recommended, and I cannot say
too much in praise of this wonderful medi
cine. I have tried them all but R. II. B.
stands at the top as a blood purifier.
The above is copied from the Athens,
(Ca.) Banncr-Walcluuan. being the volun
teer language of Mr. .James A. Orecr,
which Editor Gantl indorses:
"Mr. Grecr is an honest, upright citizen
of Athens, who had a bad cancer, and his
numerous rriends thought that lie could
not live very long, as the cancer was grad
ually sapping the foundation of his con
stitution, but now looks well ami hearty.
'? Against IS.
Several physicians have pronounced my
disease blood poison, caused by paint or
lead in the paint, but they could not cure
me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles
of a largely advertised blood medicine,
Which did me no more good than so much
1 have used only two bottles of R. R. R.
and am proud to say that I have received
greater benefit from them than from tie
eighteen, aud am now rapidly recovering.
There is no question about the superiority
of 15. 15. 15. over all blood remedies.
