THE, SUPERIOR TYPE
of YOUNG MANHOOD
It Is Not a Product of the World, But Is Marked
ty a Union of the Human and the Divine
Sermon by the "Highway and Byway" Preacher.

Text. I have written unto you, young
men, because ye are strong, and the Word
of God abideth In you, and ye have over
come the wicked one." I John 2:14.
O DOUBT John, the
apostle, the one
who is speaking in
our text, was espe-
cially interested in
young men in a
certain type of
young men which he
describes in the
words before us.
This is not to be
wondered at, for
John was a young
man when he first met Jesus by the banks
cf the Jordan, and became His disciple.
His was a strone nature. He was a
young man in whose character the cur
rents of life ran deeply. His affections
and sympathies absorbed his whole na
ture. He was of quick perception and
understood his Lord better than any
other of His disciples. He realized the
mighty influence which Jesus had -ex
erted on his life; how from narrow Jew
ish prejudice he had been broadened in
his views to take in the whole world;
how, from low and selfish ideals having
their realization in this life only, he had
been inspired with the loftiest ideals
which found their eternal realization in
God, for he exclaims in this letter from
which our text is taken: "Beloved, now
are we the sons of God; and it doth not
yet appear what we shall be: but we
know that when He shall appear, we
shall be like Him; for we shall see Him
as He is." He realized how when he
first met Jesus he was filled with great
ambitions for this life only, but Jesus
had turned this strong current Godward
and had given him an ambition which
reached as high as God and which was
as broad as His eternal purposes. And
because he realized what a mighty
change and influence Jesus had wrought
In his life as a young man, he himself
was interested in young men. And
young men are always Interesting.
CATHER and mother quicken at the

tion, their pride and joy are centered in

ambitions, the persistent hopefulness are
felt throbbing within. And because of
this the voune man is interested in vounir
men as he is in no others. In the great
wide world outside the home and outside
of himself the young man is always the
center of interest and expectation. The
business and industrial world turns to
the young men with assured confidence,
expecting that its burdens will be ear-
ried and its problems worked out in the
main by them. The nation's strength is
in h" young men. She always turns to
them in the hour of danger and need.
She leans heavily upon them because
they are strong, and the honor and per-
manency of her government and instl-
tutions are measured by the character
of her young men. There is no place in
all the world where the human family
finds a home where the voune man has
?.Ct an exalted place and is not a sub
ject of interest and Importance.
HERE are different types of young
manhood, and should we ask which
one is the superior type, we would no
doubt receive a variety of answers. Some
would reply the Apollo of physical per
fection; others would esteem intellectu-
alism A3 the qualification which was to
determlce; still others would declare
that business acumen which would en
able a young man to become a Napoleon
of finance and industry was the trait
which would mark the superior type of
young manhood; while still others
would hold that ethical standards should
determine the question. But if we give
John the opportunity of answering the
question, he would point to the class of
young men to whom he was writing and
declare that, there was the superior type
of young manhood the young manhood
which was strong in the Lord and in
the power of His might. Two great facts,
yea three, must be kept in mind: That
man was created by God and created in
His own image, and man was created for
the Glory of God. The highest possibil
ities of man must find their realization
then in and for God. The manhood which
reflects most perfectly the God in whose
image man has been created, and ful
fills most fully the purpose of that
creation, must be the superior type of
THE sculptor with his chisel and mal-
I let, and the artist with his palette
and brush seek by their creative skill to
produce something which will give ex
pression to an inward Ideal and bring to
them glory, and honor, and fame. The
highest mission of the statue or the oil
painting would be to reveal the ideal of
the one who had created it, and by its
perfect outline and coloring bring to him
glory. But suppose after the last chip 1
had been taken from the marble and the 5
last touch of the brush had been felt by i
the canvas, that the statue or the figure 1
in the painting should willfully refuse
to express the ideal of its creator and
thus dishonor Instead of glorifying the
one who had so patiently wrought upon
it? Suppose the bird which God has
made to fly should lay aside its buoyant
wings and with downcast eyes content
itself with a life which never rose above
the earth's green sod or the branches of
the low-spreading bush? The lofty out
look in yonder tall tree would never feel
the weight of the little songster, and the
blue vault of heaven would not echo with
the notes of his song. The highest and
best possibilities of the little bird would
not be realized. It is so with man, and
especially the young man, for what the
young man is nearly always determines
what the character of the man in later
life Is to be. It is only as the thing
created fulfills the mission of its crea
tion that it can be said that it has real
ized its highest poseibjjiuesr. Man hss
been created in the image of God that
is, he has been endowed with a spiritual
nature which can only find its highest
possibilities and its complete satisfac-
tion in God Himself. He was created
for God, and nothing but God can satisfy.
This being true, the highest, the superior.
tyne of vountr manhood is found not in
the young man who achieves the merely
human and earthly success or honor or
power, but is found in the young man
who links his life with God and gives
expression to the Divine will.
STRONG young men! Found within
the ranks of the disciples of the Lord
Jesus Christ and not outside. Strange
that the opinion should prevail in the
world and among the young men of the
world that religion is weak and effemi
nate. Strange, we say, and yet not so
strange, for the devil is ever busy get
ting the world to believe a lie. And men
prefer to believe a lie because their deeds
are evil. The devil is the most clever
sleight-of-hand performer the world has
ever seen, and he can make you believe
black is white and white black if you
will but give him audience. Jesus had
to tell him to "get thee behind Me,
Satan," for he dared not parley with
such a visitor. And if Jesus dared not.
how dare you do such a thing? I re
member a number of years ago when a
clever trickster made me believe that he
had ripped every button off my coat. He
had not, but the movements of his hands
were so swift and he held my coat in
such a manner as to make it look ex
actly as though the buttons had been
pulled off. He made me believe a lie.
And Satan does that sort of thing, too.
He Paints religion in unattractive colors,
and deludes young men into the idea that
with it they are less manly, and less suc
cessful than without it Do you think to
find the really strong young man outside
the ranks of the followers of Jesus
Christ? Let us see.
THE man of fine physique rejoices in
his strength, and duri
lifeknowsnotwhat weakness means, but
when the chilling hand of death is laid
upon his powerful frame what has he to
depend upon? If he is a follower of
Christ he may shout with Paul, "Death
is swallowed up in victory." But if he
has refused to receive God's message to
his Polll. of what avail is Tiie
strength in tne face of the eternal sum
,Th.f, maJlst d lghts in nis strength
of 7" w,hjch enbles him to ve aclean,
uPriSht llfe- and he moves smoothly and
proudly through the world until at last
the grave opens and his career is ended.
His moral strength has enabled him to
leave with men a stainless record, but
how is it when his soul gets into the
presence of God? There moral worth
loses its potency. There only the blood
of Jesus Christ has the power to over-
come the judgment of death standing
against the human race, and is able to
admit to Heaven. He has put his trust in
his moral worth and he hears God say
to his soul: "All have sinned and come
short of the glory of God;" "There is
none that doeth good, no not one," your
moral worth is of no avail this side of
the grave; depart from Me; for you have
rejected My Son who went to earth to
The man of intellectual strength may
encompass the learning of the world and
sit upon the pinnacle of the mountain
of the world's wisdom. What towering
strength holds him in his position of at
tainment? He excels all his fellows in
learning. But the brain which has mani
fested such strength and capacity is soon
palsied by death, and the soul with all
of its learning is ushered into the pres
ence of Him in Whom center all knowl
edge and wisdom. Dare the poor soul
longer trust in the strength of its own
wisdom as it hears the words: "The wis
dom of this world is foolishness with
God, because the foolishness of God is
wiser than men; and the weakness of
God is stronger than men." "For the Lord
taketh the wise in their own craftiness,
and He knoweth the thoughts of the wise
that they are vain." And the simplicity
and faith of a little child is exalted above
all his learning, for Jesus says: "Except
ye become as little children, ye shall not
enter into the Kingdom of Heaven."
VVEALTH wields a mighty power. The
Vv man with the golden key can un
lock the treasure house of this world's
possessions and gratify almost any de
sire of which flesh is capable. Money
will buy any of the goods which are on
the world's counters, but it will not buy
a mansion in Heaven. Money will take
one anywhere almost on the face of the
earth, but it will not sectlre a passage
across the dark river and into the pearly
gates of the Celestial city. Money is able
to buy up legislative bodies, and nations,
and fill the offices of city county,
state and nation; but all the goid
mined and minted and all the gold
yet resting in the bosom of Mother
Earth is not sufficient to buy up
God and alter His judgments. The man
with his millions is a mighty factor in
the affairs of men, but, like the rich man
of Jesus' parable who was planning the
building of larger barns that he might
store his increasing treasures, when the
summons comes to meet his God, he has
to leave all his treasures behind. In
naked poverty he was ushered before the
judgment bar, and then what did it profit
him that he was one of the richest men
in all the world? For all that he could
take with him into the next world his
soul was lost forever. Who would say
that the wealthy young man was the
strong young man? So much for such
strength as the world in various direc
tions is able to produce. The superior
type of young man is not found in any of
them. Under the final testing at the
hands of God, the vital qualification is
found to be lacking. The counterfeit
coin may pass current side by side with
the genuine. It may look to be genuine,
It may have the true rung, but subject it
to the final test of the acid and its in
feriority is at once apparent. The supe
rior type of young manhood is not dis
covered by th$ worjd'B testiog, by tfee
searching testing of God. The strong
young man ia the superior young man.
THE young man who is strong physic
ally muat have life, and health and
muscles, and these three conditions are
requisite to the superior type of young
manhood. These three qualifications are
possessed by the young men to whom our
text is addressed, and mark their vital
points of difference from the other types
of young men. Let us see If this is not
true. The non-Christian young man,
whatever else he may have, has not soul
life, has not soul health, has not soull
vigor. He may not be alive to his lack.
He may be indifferent to his need. He
may doubt the reality of his soul's need,
but our final refuge must be in God's
word to prove man's condition as well
as his need, even as our final testing must
be at God's hand. It is harder to make
young men realize the deadness of the
natural soul, because they are so full of
physical life. Death seems a vague and
unreal thing, and life is so full and prom
ising. But apart from God there is no
lasting life. The unsaved soul is "dead
in trespasses and Bins." The physical
life may be perfect, the natural qualifica
tions and attainments may be of the
highest and best, but if the soul has not
been quickened into life by the touch of
the crucified Lord, the physical body,
with its intellectual and moral attain
ments, is but the sepulcher of a dead soul
Think of it! Hidden behind the smile of
the world, its pleasures, its ambitions.
lies the soul, cold and stiff in death!
Would you hope to find your superior
young man in one who was thoughtless
ly or wilfully furnishing a living tomb
for his poor dead soul?
AGAIN the superior young man is
the Christian whose soul is
healthy. One of the saddest of sights
is the weak, vacillating, half-hearted
Christian. The soul, has been quick
ened into life by belief in Jesus Christ
as Saviour, and then it has turned to
the weak and beggarly elements of the
world to feed upon. Did you ever see
a healthy body which was deprived of
its proper food? Can you expect the
soul to remain in health that is
not fed upon its proper food? How
carefully the babe is nourished. How
important it is that the babes in
Christ should feed on the sincere milk
of God's Word, and that the full-grown
Christians should be fed on the meat
of the deeper, fuller truths of God's
Word. No wonder such reproach is
cast upon Christian manhood when
there are so many unhealthy Chris
tians to whom the world can point the
finger of scorn. Such were not the
young men to whom John was writing.
He was writing to strong young men
young men who belonged to Christ,
and who, by the strength of their
Christly virtues, stocsl out as the su
perior type of young manhood. - Lifv
which has its source in Christ; health
which comes from the nourishing of
the soul on God and His Word;
strength which comes from exercise
unto godliness; "for bodily exercise
profiteth little; but godliness is profit
able unto all things, having promise of
the life that now is, and of that which
is to come."
YOUNG men who are strong! Young
men who have overcome! It takes
the strong young man to win the vic
tory over sin. It is the strong young
man who is the successful foe of the
wicked one. The superior type of
young man must of necessity be tho
young man who wins victories. Why
boast of strength if victories are not
to be an outgrowth of that strength?
This arm of mine may rejoice in its
strength, but if there is no weight to
be lifted, no burden to be carried, no
task to be wrought out, the arm soon
shows the weakening effects of inac
tion, and so is no longer the strongarm
but the weak, powerless member
which is unable to serve me with effi
ciency and honor. It is a constant
warfare for the strong young man if
he would keep in fighting trim. The
devil is aggressive and active. The
soul cannot sleep at its post. It can
not be indifferent to the advance of the
foe. David hasted and ran when the
giant Goliath advanced upon him, for
he knew that to hesitate or delay was
to lose his supreme opportunity of
sending the stone crashing into the
forehead of the giant. Soon he would
have the visor of his helmet lowered
as he joined battle, and the only vul
nerable point which David could reach
with his missile would be cut off.
KIOTE that the indwelling Word is
1 N the link which join3 the strong
young man to the victory. "I have
written unto you, young men, because
ye are strong, and the Word of God
abideth in you, and ye have overcome
the wicked one." The indwelling
Word is the secret of strength. The
Psalmist asks: "Wherewithal shall a
young man cleanse his way?" And
c.mckly answers his own question by
declaring: "By taking heed thereto
according to Thy Word." "The Word
of God ig quick and powerful, and
sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder
of soul and spirit, and of the joints and
marrow, and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents of the heart."
The young man of the unclean heart ia
in a condition of weakness. The ex
pulsive power of God's Word is needed
to cleanse the heart, while that same
Word girds with strength and equips
for the battle. Jesus put Satan to
rout by His thrice-repeated: "It is
written. I he devil can stand un
flinching and unscathed before the fire
of the guns of human word and human
effort, but let the thunderbolts of God's
Word be turned upon him and he
makes hasty and ignominious flight.
And Satan must admit defeat before
the strong young man in whom is
abiding the Word of God. He is the
superior young man, for both in this
life and in the life to come he is vi
torious, yea, he is more than conquer-
I or through Him that loved him, and
gave Himself for him. Would you not

Tho New York Central's Empire State

railroad, and considered the very best means
to cover the ground in the time required. It
is for this reason that the Harvard Uni

the most reliable play in their programme.
It was successful throughout the season
until it met Yale's '20th Century Limited"
play, which was just as swift, sale and sure,
but had longer endurance and was "limited"
ouly by the size of the field. The names of
the rival teams very correctly describe the
difference in the famous trains, the "Empire

Buffalo, while the "20th Century Limited"
makes the DS0 miles between New York and
