in Practical Religion- A
Protest Against Dis
In this discourse Dr. Talmage gives
prescriptions for the prolongation of
and preaches the gospel o; phySi
al health. The text is Psalaw xei, 10.
With long life will I satisfy him."
Through tle m's:ake of its frienls re
liaion has been chidfly assec'ated with

subject to many puope is odorous wid

Religion, so far from subtracting .:om

is sanative, curative, hN ien-e. It is
good for the eves, good for the ears.
good for the spleen, good for the dige.
tion, good for the r.erves, good for the
muscles. When David in anotner p:,r
of the psalm prays that religion may be
dominant, he does not speak of it as a
mild sickness or an emaciation or an at
tack of moral and spiritual cramp. lie
speaks of it as "the saving health of
all nations," while God in the text
promises longevity to the pious, saying.
"With long life will I -atlsfy him.'"
The fact is that men and women die too
soon. It is high time that religion
joined the hand of melieal scienec in
attempting to improve human longevity.
Adam lived 930 years; Me: huselah lived
996 years. As late in the history of
the world as Vespasian there were at
one time in his empire 45 people 135
years old. So far down as the six
teenth century Peter Zartan died at 1S.>
years of age. I do nut say that relig
ion will ever take the race back to au
tediluvian longevity, but I do say the
length of life will be increased.
It is said in Isaiah, "The child shall
die a hundred years old." Now, if, ae
cording to Scripture, the child is to be
a hundred years old. may not the men
and women reach to 300 and 400? The
fact is that we are mere dwarfs and
skeletons compared with some of the
generations that-are to come. Take the
African race. They have been under
bondage for centuries. Give the' a
chance, and they develop a Fredtriek
Douglass or a Toussaint L'Oaver:ur-'
And, if the white race shall be brought
from under the serfdom of sin, what
shall be the body, what shall be the
soul? Religion has only jxst i ouent a
our world. 'Give it full power for a few
centuries, and who can tell what will
be the strength of mats and the beauty
of women and the longevity of all?
Mv design is to show that practicai
religion is the friend of long life. I
prove it first from the fact that it makes
the care of our health a posi~ive Chris
tian duty. Whether we shall keep ear
ly or late hours, whether we shall take
food digestible or indigestible, whether
there shall be thorough or incomplete
mastication, are questions very often
deferred to the realm of whimsicality.
But the Christian man lifts this whole
problem of health into the accountable
and the disine. He says, "God ha~
given me this body, and be has called
it the temple of the H oly Ghost, and to
deface its altars or mar its walls or
erumble its pillars is a God defying
sacrilege." He sees God's caligraphy
in every page, anatouaisal a~d phy siol
ogical. He says, "God has given me a
wonderful body for noble purposes"

to himself, 'If I hurt my aerve~, if I
hurt my brain, if I hurt any of my h
sical faculties, I insult God and call f,.r
dire retribution." Why did God tell
the Levites not to offer to him in sacri
ice animals imperfect and di-eased? He
-meant to tell us in all the ages thei we
are to offer to God our very best pnysi
eal condition, and a man who thbrough
irregular or gluttonous eating ruins his
health is not offering to G od such a s~e
rifice. Why aid Paul .write for his
cloak at Troas? Why should such a
great man as Paul be a'nious about a
thing so insignideant as an overcoat.

but never worr.ing, because God is

worry about busit.es's when in answerto
his prayer God tells him when to buy
and when to sell. And if he gain, that
is beat, and if he lo:-e, that is best.

Again, practical religion is a friend
of lo' gevity in the fact that it removes
all corroding care about a future exis
tence. Every man wants to know what
is to become of him. If you get on
board a rail train, you want to know at
what depot it is going to stop. If you
get on board a ship, you want to know
into what harbor it is going to run. And

tiny I would, in as polite a t'ay as I
know how, tell you 1 did not believe
you. Before I had this matter settled
with reference to my future existence
the question almost worried me into
ruined health. Th anxieties men have
upon this subject put together would
make a martyrdom. This is a state of
awful unhealthiness. There are people
who fret themselves to death for fear
(f dying. I wont to take the strain off
your nerves and the depression off your
soul, and I make two or three experi
ments. Experiment first: When you
go out of this world, it does not make
any difference whether you have been
good or bad, whether you believed truth
or error, you will go straight to glory.
"Impossible," you say. "My common
sense as well as my religion teaches that
the bad and the good cannot live to
gether forever. You give me no com
fort in that experiment." Experiment
the second: When you l2ave this world
you will go into an intermediate state,
where you can get converted and pre
pared for heaven.
"Itopossible," you say. "As the
tree falleth, so must it lie, and I cannot
postpone to an intermediate state refor
mation which ought to have been ef
fected in this state." Experiment the
third: There is no future world. N
a man dies, that i. the last of him.
not worry about what you are to do
another state of being. You will
do anything. "Impossible," you s ty.
"There is something that tells me t:at
death is not the appendix, but the I-e
face, to life. There is something that
tells mne that on this side of the grave
I only get started and that I shall go on
forever. My power to think says 'for
evt r,' my affections say 'forever,' my
cap-teity to enjoy or suffer, 'forever.'"
Well, you defeat me in my three ex
perimcnts. I have only one more to
make, and if you defeat me in that I
am exhausted. A mighty One on a
kvoll back of Jerusalem one day, the
skits filled with forked lightnings and
the earth filled with volcanic distur
bances, turned his pale and agoniz.d
face towaid the heavens and said: "I
take the sins~ and sorrows of the ages
into my ow'a !eart. I am the expiation
Witniess, carth and heaven and hlcl. I
am the expiation." And the hammer
struck him, and the spears punctur.-u
him, and heaven thundered. "The
wages of sini is death!" "The soul that
sinnetb, it shall die!" "I wdll by no
mear~sclear the guilty!'' Then there
was silence for nalf an hour, and the
lightrda~gs were drawn back into the
scboard of the sky, and the earth
ceased to quiver, and all the colors of
the sky began to shift into a rainbow
woven out of the fallinie tears of Jesus,
and there was red as of the bloodsheti
ding, and there was blue as of the
bruising, and there was green as of the
heavenly foliage, and there was orange
as of the day dawn, and along the line
of the blue I saw the words, "I was
bruised for their iniqities," and alone
the line of red I saw the words, "Tb.'
blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from al
sin," and along the line of the g--een I
saw the words, "The leaves of the Tr'
of L-fe for the healing of the nations,"
and aloeg the line of the orange I saw
the words, "The day spring from on
hgh bath visited us," and then I saw
the storm was over, and the rainbow
rose higher and higher until it seemed
retreating to another heaven, and plaut
one column of its colors on one side'
the eternal hill, and planting the other
column of its colors on the other side
the eternal hill, it rose upward and
upward, "and, behold, there was a rain

sacrifice and quit worrying. Take the
tonic, the inspiration, the longevity, of
this truth. Resligmion is sunshine; that
is health. Religi n is fresh air and
