It's Christ Universal.
He Is "the Son of Man." There Is
something exceedingly emphatic' In
that expression. "Son of Man," writes
Frederick Robertson; "our Master
Is not called the Son of Mary, but aa
If the blood of the whole human race
were In his veins. He calls himself
tho Son of Man. He was not tho
Asiatic. He was not the European.
He wns not tho Jew. Ho was not
tho type of that century stampod with
Its peculiarities. He was not the
piechanic. He was not the aristocrat.
But ho was tho man." No one could
mistake Mohammed for such a "Son
of Man," Ho was a son of Arabia,
and nothing more. Tho Koran Is,
therefore, a sectarian book, and Mo
hammedanism is cruelly sectarian.
Buddhn wns a son of India, and noth
ing more. No oiw could mistake him
for a ' Son of man.'- His writings nre,
therefore, sectarlmi. They are not
adapted to tho occidental mind. Confucius
was a bon of China, nnd nothing
more. His writings aro therefore
sectarian In their nntiwmnl narrowness.
