LIBERTY and Loyalty Are Needed By
Christians, Now As In Early Days
Admonitions of Paul and Jude Apply With Especial Emphasis Today; Conserva
tion of Truth an Important Duty.
By REV. PERRY J. RICE, Pastor of the First Christian Church.

Contend earnetlr for the faith once
for all delivered to the aalnta. Jade,
I: 3 and 4.
I HAVE chosen to associate these
texts not because they are alike,
but because they reflect two dif
ferent phases of our Christian pro
fession. The one Is an exhortation to
libertj, the other to loyalty. The one
urges us to "stand fast" In the liberty
of the gospel; the' other calls upon us
to ' contend earnestly .for the faith
once for all delivered to the saints."
Thev seem to point In different di
rt etions, the first toward great free
dom of action an belief; the other
toward conformity to a fixed order
of things. Are they opposed to each
other? Are they irreconcilable?. Or Is
this apparent antithesis only on the
Before answering thfe question di
rectly, let us study the situation for
a. moment. They are from different
authors. The first is from Paul, the
second Is from Jude. Perhaps if we
knew these two men better and the
viewpoint of each, we should under
stand the significance of these say
ings. Paul, the Defender of Traditions.
Trnrjcrant nrthodoxv has made Paul
the defender of traditions, whereas he
was rather the propagandist of a new
theology, the steadfast and unrelent
ing enemy of a narrow conservatism
which threatened to i title Christian
ity in the first century. We shall
never be able to interpret correctly
his epistles unless we keep this fact
lo mind. He snent his life withstand
the efforts of the Judaizers. The Ro
man letter was wrUten to tho brethren

that city for this Tery purpose. There
Is not a single epistle from his pen
but that gives evidence of the con
flict in which he led on the side of

bten iaied up of God for this very
Ber ict- a service which he performed
with marked fidelity and ability as
thn new testament abundantly shows.
The text which -we have selected from
l'-e Galatlan pisile voices the very
heart of his contention, and is expres
sive of the mighty passion which
stirred his souL He was afraid of
the yoke of bondage which the Judai
zers sought to place upon the necks
of all Christians, and he cried out in
warning against it.
Jude Slow to Accept.
The other text is from Jude, the
brother of James, the bishop of the
church of Jerusalem, and brother of
the Lord. It reflects an entirely dif
ferent feeling. As Is well known,
tnese brothers of the Lord were slow
to accept his claims of Messiaship.
Indeed, they did not accept them until
after his resurrection. They -were
both of them conservative though gen

c evouon to ine institutes or that an
cient faith. Insofa- tieitlore, as lie
exhortation of the text relates at all
to doctrinal matters It has reference
t all thai the Hebrew people held
sacred as well as to later revelations.
There is. however, another fact to
be taken into consideration. In a very
true sense the two texts have refer
ence to very different things. Paul's
utterance has reference primarily to
one's Intellectual conception of Chris
tianity. He feared the tendency to
bind the intellect to a system that had
no meaning In the Christian dispen
sation. Jude feared primarily the
heresy of immorality. He warned
against ungodliness which turns "the
grace of our God Into lasclvlousness"
and thus denies "our only Master and.

be understood as contradictory or op
posed to each other. While Jude was
not so pronounced in his views about
freedom from bondage to Judaism as
was Paul he seems to have stood with
the apostle Instead of against him in
that particular: and while Paul stout
ly demanded freedom from the yoke
of bondage he would have been the
last to have looked approvingly upon
any moral derelectlon. We need,
however, to know the difference in
the atmosphere out from which these
texts came or we may quite misun
derstand and misapply both of them.
There Is a freedom which Chris
tianity not only grants, bat which Is
essential to Its very life. I do not
mean license when I say freedom.
One may so use his freedom as to In
jure both himself and the cause he
represents. Religious freedom does
not necessarily mean that one must
blatantly proclaim every new fancy
of his own egotistic mind. Such a
course deserves and usually receives
the condemnation of all right thinking
people. One does not need to become
a nuisance because he is free. Truth
never gains by boorishness. One s

of others. But freedom itself is es
sential to the progress of Christian ty.
Must Have Iltght to Investigate.
People must have the right to in
vestigate, to reason, to draw conclu
sions and form convictions, however
radical they may seem to be. Only so
can the newly discovered truth gain
acceptance and become operative. We
must remember that as Sabatier has
"The new truth discovered by free
inquiry is older and more venerable
than the most venerable authority."
It Is hard to grant this freedom
graciously and it is hard to exercise
it gracefully. Our convictions get to
be our idols and we do not want them
modified. Our doctrines become shib
boleths by which we test the ortho
doxy of others. It is absolutely
necessary that from time to time these
forms into which the truth has been
cast be broken up and recast, other
wise they cease to have meaning and
vital signficance. We believe in the
Inspiration- of the scriptures, but It is
to be feared that the phrase to many
people, is merely a phrase, a shib
boleth which they want others to
Protestants and catholics alike be
lieve in the "divinity of Christ." and
rightly Insist upon it, but this phrase,
too, is in danger of becoming a mere
shibboleth by which we test the
othodoxy of others. I wish we might
become accustomed to the use of
that rich variety of phrases used In
the new testament to express our
Lord's nature and relations.
Pleads for Freedom from Phrases.
I ara pleading for freedom from
bondage to set phrases, forms and
traditions that hare become stilted If
not stale, and have no meaning to the
average man. We dare not deny this
freedom. Every time the effort has
been made to check It. division has
resulted and unhappy strifes have fol
lowed, greatly to the detriment of
the cause of Christ. People must be
given the liberty to think and speak
for themselves, using their own lan
guage to express the convictions of
their own hearts. It is the exercise
of such liberty that set the church of
the first century free from the letter
that would have killed it. It was
the exercise of such freedom that
liberated the church atrain in the ism
century from a formalism and dogma
tism that had well nigh robbed it of
Its glory and power Freedom has
been the watchword of all the re
formers from Savonarola to Camp
bell. In Its exercise they unchained
the bible and removed It from the
altar and cloister to the home and
fireside: they loosed it to the trans
lators who have made it accessible
to all the people; they interpreted Its
precious truths and set them free to
comfort and console, to cheer and to
chasten, to inform and inspire the
hearts of men and women everywhere.
We must have freedom or our re
ligion will become a dead formalism,
a Juiceless, insipid thing, unless at
least for the present life with Its prob
lems of sin and sorrow, of despair
and defeat. And there should be no
meets and bounds set to freedom save
those of good sense and Christian

minded people. There is truth to con
serve. It is slUy to ignore the past
with Its rich treasures of truth. The
old Is at least as good as the new so
far as It Is true, and it is as likely to
be true as the fancies of the men of
today. But more important still Is
th conservatism of which Jude
speaks. We must contend for Chris
tian charater. for that purity of life
and nobility of soul that commends
the gospel. Christianity flowers in
character not in creed, and if it cannot
produce Its blossom It Is weak lndeed.
There is nothing so deadly in Its
effects upon Christianity and the
church as the ungodliness that "turns
the grace of God Into lasciviousness."
Ieplore as we may the heresies . of
the head, they do not compare iqrtMttr
effects upon the church with those
other heresies of the life. People do
not read our bible, they care little or
nothing about our creeds, our fine
spun theologies: they do not often go
io our cnurcnes, dui mey sw u ax
work and at play, in our homes, our
stores and offices and on the street
and they Judge of Christianity and
of Christ by what they see and hear.
Real Enemies of the Church.
It L as true today as ever that the
enemies of the church are they of her
own household. Sometimes they are
in the pulpit, sometimes they are In
the pew, sometimes they are at our
seats of learning and sometimes they
are on the streets. Hre In this city,
contiguous to a city that represents
a state of civilization somewhat lower
than we claim for ourselves, where
Immoralities of every kind are coun
tenanced and indulged, I feel the urg
ency of right living. It is of great
importance that we should think cor
rectly and believe only the truth, but
more Important still Is It mat we
should live holy lives above the re
proach of the world, and thus com
mend the gospel of Christ. This is
the- kind of loyalty which Jude insist
ed upon and which every Christian
must yield if Christianity is to be the
conquering force that it is Intended
Character is the great desideratum,
and. in order to achieve it we must
have liberty which permits Individual
initiative and freedom of action, and
we must have loyalty also to the ideals
or character which God has set for
us In Christ Jesus.

Yet We Never Got Choicer Rubber
We Never Built Better Tires
There exists now a new reason most compelling for buying Good
year Tires. It results from war conditions.
These leading tires built of extra-fine rubber, in the same way as
always are selling today at June prices.
Early in August when war began the world's rubber
markets seemed suddenly closed to us. Rubber prices doubled
almost over night
Men could see no way to pay for rubber abroad, and no
way to bring it in. We, like others in that panic were forced
to higher prices. But we have since gone back to prices we
charged before the war, and this is how we did it:
We had men in London and Singapore when the war broke
out The larger part of the world's rubber supply comes through
there. We cabled them to buy up the pick of the rubber. They
bought before the advance 1,500.000 pounds of the finest
Nearly all this is now on the way to us. And it means
practically all of the extra-grade rubber obtainable abroad.
Today we have our own men m- Colombo. Singapore and
Para. Those are the world's chief sources of rubber. So we are
pretty well assured of a constant supply, and our pick of the best
We were Erst on the ground. We were quickest in action.
As a result, we shall soon have in storage an almost record supply
of this extra grade of rubber.
And we paid about June prices. V ' .'

that case It may prove that all Eng

impeded transportation. Cardinal
Farley, of New York, is In Switzerland,

Rome and In Italy already.
