After this tho city demands was $"00 CO.
This amount wo hod not cn hnnd, so wo

During his pastoral charge this houso was

it. Tho noxt eldor was Elder Urown. Ho

Tho reverend gontlcmnn commenced ley
snvim: tho Christian religion bail its
objective as well a its sulpjcctlvo side. It
mm us onsi in cerium inci-, rupiuricniiy
utteiteil. Tho nnoMltf's creed was not a
system of philosophy, nor n theory about
divine or mortal things "Imply 11 state
ment to which the church bears willies.
Tho rmlpil should entorco tho concrete.
and historic truth upon which their relig
ion rested. Kemove the foundation ot
facts and thu church would fall.
Tho growing tendency of thu age win to
unsettle their religion 'from Its II r 111 foun
dation, and to divert it of 1)10 characteris
tics which separated it from all falo relig
ion. It was tho aim of modern heresy to
reduce it to an abstraction. It would
maku Christianity 11 theory mid 11 human
device. " Philosophy and upcrHitioii dis
carded a religion of facts and ba-cd their
eytiums 011 nt-umcd proposition!-. The
one Is cold, thu other grovelling, the one
presumptions, tho other Ignorant
Tho ureat cardinal fret of our rulii"n,
thu central fact of earth, was Chri't. The
earliuU generations had forulold Him by
lironbecy. Faith then looked forward a
it now reverts to Him. Tho thoughts of
thu ages centered upon Him. A Christian
era in the measurement of time wax thu
world's confe-siou 01 thu great central fact
of their religion. Iho "anno domltil,
points to Christ and remind believers
and unbelievers alike of Ihu great fact of
earths history. It would bo itlmo-l as
cay to demolish tbo world as to eliminate
llu lad. still nu would essay even uiit.
This great fact Is discredited by unbeliev
ers, "Wo have no vain theories, said
the speaker, "upon which to tuku an luu,
nor any philosophy except that which is
inherent 111 thu facts." Thiers was a per
sonal not a mythical Savior. In the com
plex statement 01 cardinal truth there
were some subordinate facts dependent on
thu principal, of which thu church was
one ol them. Christ and lljs forerunners
preached "Tho kingdom of heaven is at
hand," and the visible fact was before
thorn in the Christian church,
"What think ye of Christ?" was n
ouostion of cnerrossinir importance. The
question demanded a sober judgment upon
tnings accomplished; it wns not one of
metaphysical rounomont. it was the
question by which tbo world was to bu
confounded. It must be answered.
Thu Pharisees denied the mltslon of
Christ, and infidelity denied his works.
Thu croat fatal error of the Jewish peo
ple was tho' profussod belief in God and a
rejection of tho Lord Jesus Christ. Thu
text admonished thoio who wero believers
in God to nlso bolievo in Christ. A sim
ple acknowledgment of God was not all
that was required of them. He invited
their attentiun to a unci consideration 01
thu principal reasons why tho general
bullet in Uod was an Inriutuclent lalth.
If the revelation of God in Christ had
been unnecessary, no such revelation
would havo over been made. If the rev
elation was necessary then tho belief in it
was al.o necessary. Tboy could trace thn
preparations for tho coming nf thu
condition or immanuci even irom tne iau 01 man.
should thev charge God with folly, and
had ho wrought out all this for naught'.'
A second reason for tho necessity that
their belief should comprehend nut only
faith In God but faith in Jesus might b'e
stated in tho language of scripture. " For
there Is none other iiamu under heaven
whereby wu miut be saved ; nuUhur Is
there salvation in any other. ' This was a
vitally important reason. God Would
save thorn through faith in Jesus namo.
No other way of salvation had been re
vealed to mnn. There was one way which
men wero disposed lo reject ami depie,
and that was lo believe in ihu Lord Jusiii
Chriil. Ho was the one who was to con
fer eternal life. How then could the .on
of God bo set aido? Tho mm of tho
duvll would bo retched if ho could induce
in them the denial andconiemptof Chrin.
Ho begged his hearers to pray, "Lord, 1
believe, help Thou mine unbelief.''
Third, belief in Christ was essential be
cause Ho was to bo their Judejo. " For tho
Father Judgeth no man. but hath commit
ted all judgment unto tlio Son, " salth the
apostle. If they refused to honor thu Son,
then they dishonored God, Christ was
the ono who was to acknowledge or ie.
Ject them in tho day of account. Was it
then a matter of lndifl'urenco whether
they beliuved on Him or confessed His
nnmn boforo men? Could they deny Him
in word and deed nml expect liisclcmuncy
in tlio world to conio 7 It was tho judgo
who gavo them warning. " Whosoever
shall deny mo beloro men him will I also
deny before -My Futhor which is in heav
en." Fourth, tho comforts nnd consolations
of their religion weru all in this belief.
Every Christian hopo depended upon thu
fact that they had an advocate with tlio
Father in Jesus Christ. Deprived of this
faith, their religion wns barren of hope, of
commit and of Joy. Such n religion wns
no moro contradictory in terms than it was
impossible in fact. Tho graces of tho
Christian character nil contered in him.
Faith, hopo and lovo had no perfect exur
ciso in their naturu except toward Christ.
Faith fastens upon him; Impels secured
in him; lovo clings to him, nnd ho is the
basis and bond of these.
