and Acts 17:11.
HE, first part of our
text consists of
word3 -spoken by
Jesus in challenge
and command tc
the Jews who
themselves to the
truth as fulfilled
in Christ and re
vealed by Him in
and the remaining
rjart of the text
is the testimony
borne in respect to the Berean Jews
to whom Paul and Silas came with the
message of salvation, after they had
been so shamefully driven out of Thes
salonica. Here we have precept and
example -Jesus' command and a beau
tiful and striking obedience to the let
ter end spirit of that command. Jesus
recognized the Scriptures as the au
thoritative word of God, and they were
always His last source of appeal. He
held up to the Jews who rejected His
claims as the promised Messiah the
very Scriptures which they recognized
as the Word of God, and with which
they were familiar, and challenged
them to study the sacred writings
again, for they "testify of Me." They
had read the Scriptures and yet they
had not learned the truth. The Thes-
salonian Jews had the same heart of
unbelief. They read in blind bigotry,
Instead of openness of mind which
characterized the Berean Jews. The
latter "searched the Scriptures daily,
whether those things were so." Here
was neglect of the Scriptures on the
on hand, and on the other a daily
reading and studying of God's Word
In search for the truth. The Thessa
lonians recognized the Scriptures as
the Word of God. Generally speaking,
they undoubtedly were familiar with
thorn. They heard them read in the
synagogue from week to week. They
observed the externalities of the Jew
ish faith, as revealed in those Scrip
tures. But notwithstanding all this
there was neglect of God's Word, and
in this respect the Bereans were in
striking contrast to them, for they did
that which the Thessalonian3 refused
to do, "searched the Scriptures daily."
S there neglect of God's Word to
day? Are the Berean type of people
sadly In the minority, and the Thessa-
Ionians vastly in the majority every
where? How generally is Christ's
command: "Search the Scriptures,"
being obeyed? and how often do we
find it possible to say of individuals or
communities or churches: "They re
ceived the Word with all readiness of
mind and searched the Scriptures
daily, whether those things were so?"
Is the Bible, the Word of God, being
neglected? we ask. Certainly not in
respect to the printing of the Bible
and sending it broadcact over the
earth. More Bibles and Testaments
are being printed every year. Several
million copies of the Bible and parts
of the Bible are being issued every
year by the different Bible societies
and denominations. Already the Bible
has been translated into over 400 dif- i
ferent languages and dialects, and each I
year see3 some new translation added
to the long list. Millions of copies of I
the Bible and parts of the Bible are
being sent each year from the United
States to other lands. Surely it can
not be charged that in the publication
and distribution of the Word of God
the Bible is being neglected. In the
purchase of Bibles it cannot be claimed
that the Bible is neglected, for a news
paper man who visited the book de
partment of all the large department
6tores of New York city wa.3 told that
the Bible was the best selling book
handled, not excepting the popular
novels of the day. The sales were
steady and from 30,000 to 40,000 copies
of all styles of bindings were sold
each year. And at Christmas time a
special Bible department was neces
sary, requiring the constant attention
of three or four clerks. Taking ihis
as a guide to the general popularity of
the Bible, it can be said that in the
purchase of the Eible the sacred Book
is not being neglected. And in dis
cussion or the Bible it is not being:
neglected. The higher critics and the
lower critics, too, for that matter, are
not neglecting the Bible. It is the
most talked of book in the world.
Each year multiplies the myriad of
books which treat of the Bible in some
respect or other. And so it cannot be
charged that the Bible is being neg
lected by the scholars of the day. And
in the direction of archaeology there
Is no neglect of the Bible. Almost
every year some new monument, or
tablet, or parchment is being discov
ered which establishes more firmly the
authenticity of the sacred writirigs,
and throws light upon the conn trips
and peoples and times with which its
history and biography and literature
had to do.
BUT the fac'.that the publishing houses
and Bible societies, the book stores
the scholars, and archaeologists of the
day are not neglecting the Bible as a
commercial commodity or as a subject
of research and discussion does not
prove that the Bible is not being neg
lected. If after the printing: press nnd
distributing agent have done their part
in placing the B1DI3 in the hands of the
individual, it remains practically a
closed book, not even to be opened once
a week on Sunday because the Sunday
newspaper has usurped its place, Is it
not a neglected Book? "Some people,"
Mr. Moody used to say, "have a very
small Bible, for they only read the part
they like and leave the rest alone," and
It might be added that the great major
ity of people have no Bible at all be
cause they do not read a single word
or sentence cut of its pages for weeks or
months or years together. And I ven-

ity you would be surprised and shocked
to find out how many homes are with
out a Bible or Testament. In the sec
tion of the city where I live, and which
is peculiarly blessed with many
churches, Sunday schools and missions,
such a canvass was made during the past
summer, and dozens of homes were
found which did not possess a single
page of the printed Word of Gcd. But
the weekday and Sunday newspaper,
the magazines and journals came into
those homes, though, while the Bible did
not have even an honored place under a
mantle of dust on the high shelf. And
within a stone's throw of the church we
found a child of nearly twelve years
who had no intelligent idea of who
Christ was. She had heard the name
used in profanity on the street, but had
never been to Sunday school and did not
know who Christ was. Think of it! Is
not the Bible neglected? we ask.
IT has been said, and truthfully, that
it is impossible to mentally, or social
ly, enslave a Bible-reading people. The
great scientist. Huxley, in declaring that
the Bible as an educational and moral
influence in a community and nation
was unsurpassed, substantiated his
claim by asking us to "consider the
great historical fact that for three cen
turies this Book has been woven into
the life of &11 that is noblest and best
in our history, and that it has become
the national epic of our race; that it is
written in the noblest and purest Eng
lish, and abounds in exquisite beauties
of mere literary form; and finally, that
is forbids the veriest hind, who never
left his village, to be ignorant of the ex
istence of other countries and other
civilizations and of a great past, stretch
ing back to the furthest limits of the
oldest nations In the world." John
Wesley exclaimed: "Let me be homo
unius libri (a man of one book) , and that
book the Bible." The great, the noble
Lincoln is said to have built up his en
tire reading upon his early study of the
Bible. He was a "man of one book."
and instinctively put into practice in
his lofty statesmanship what he had
been taught from the Bible. Ruskin's
testimony of the influence and power of
the Bible upon his life is as follows:
"My mother's list of chapters with
which she established my soul in life,
and of which I learned every syllable ac
curately, were, Exodus 15 and 20; II.
Sam. 1, 5, 17 to end; I. Kings 8; Psalms
3. 32. 90. 91, 103, 112. 119, 139;
Proverbs, 2, 3, 8, 12; Isaiah 58; Matthew
5, 6, 7; Acts 26; I. Cor. 13, 15; James 4;
Revelation 5, 6. And truly, though I
have picked up the elements of a little
further knowledge in mathematics.
meteorology and the like, in after
life, and owe not a little to the
teaching of many people, this maternal
installation of my mind in that proper
ty of chapters I count very confidently
the most precious and, on the whole.
the one essential part of my education."
Gladstone declared that the "men who
are called to the highest positions of
trust are men who have built their lives
on the impregnable rock of Holy Scrip
ture. ' And what more need we say of
the power and influence of the Bible
upon individual lives and upon the livas
BUT remember that It was the read
Bible which exerted this influence.
The closed and neglected Bible is not
more potent than so much blank paper,
binding thread and cover. There are
more Bibles in this country to-day than
ever before millions upon millions of
them but If they arc not opened and
read of what practical good are they?
It may be comforting for you to know
that you have a handsomely-bound
Bible on your center table, and you may
dust it off regularly and even reverently,
but if you never look inside, if you do
not read its message, any other book
or a plaster paris image of some god or
goddess might as well be in its place.
To girdle the earth with Bibles, to lay
in every country on the globe a mosaic
of Bibles, will not enlighten the people
or draw them nearer to God, unless the
books are opened and read. And here
is where the Bible is neglected. Fifty,
one hundred years ago, when books
were few and costly, when magazines
were almost unknown, when the Sun
day newspaper was not even dreamed
of by even the most irreligious and un
godly, the Bible was the one book at
least which every home possessed. And
it was read, reverently read. And not
only was it read but it was memorized.
It was a Bible-reading people which laid
the foundations of this nation broad and
deep. Bible-reading fathers and Bible
reading mothers gave to the succeeding
generations a heritage which is still
resting as a blessing and benediction
upon us. But we have fallen upon a
day in which the Bible Is neglected.
The family altars are thrown down and
forgotten. Life is too rushing and busy,
and there are too many books and pa
pers and magazines which must be read
to be up to date, to find time to read
the Bible. The Word of God, the mes
sage of the Lord Jehovah to man, lies
neglected upon the table or shelf, while
the novel or essay or narrative which
man has written has the right of way
and holds the attention.
ONE of the religious journals had a
cartoon in a recent issue showing
a father seated with the family Bible
open upon his knee. The wife at his side
was listeniug to the evening prayers of
the two little ones who were bowed at
her knee, one on either side. The Word
of God has just been read and the
prayers are being said before the chil
dren are put to bed. Upon the outside
of that God-fearing, Bible-reading home,
ip the darkness of the night, the re
treating form of the Devil is seen. His
head is turned that he may watch the
scene within that home, but his feet lead
away from the home where he had
hoped to find entrance. Fear and hate
and disappointment play upon his
hideous face, for the open Bible has
scored a point against him. He is as
afraid of the unsheathed Sword of the
Spirit as much as the soldier of the
middle ages dreaded the keen Damas-
cus blade. Evidently he had been. Inrfc
ing in the shadow of that home to see
if the Bible would not be forgotten and
the little ones sent to bed without the
accustomed prayer. But when the
Bible is taken down and opened he pre
pares to flee. Underneath this cartoon
were the words: "Satan fears the fam
ily altar." And It Is true that the read
ing and studying of the Bible is one of
the greatest bulwarks of defense
against the attacks of the Devil. And
where the Bible is left closed and for
gotten he has pretty much his own way.
Why is the home disintegrating? Why
are there so many divorces? Why are
there so many unruly and wayward
children? There may be many con-
tributive causes for these alarming con
ditions of our day, but chiefest and for-
most It is because the Bible is neglect
UT why should we read the Bible?
First of all because It Is the vtry
Word of God. "Why, madam," said the
infidel to the old lady who loved to
read her Bible, "I can prove to your own
eyes that the Bible Is a lie." "Law," she
said, "I would believe the Bible before
I would my own eyes. These old eye
of mine have fooled me a thousand
times, but that blessed old Bible has
never deceived me in a single instance
yet." Spurgeon says: "The Bible is the
writing of the living God. Each letter
was penned with an Almighty fingor.
each word in It dropped from the ever
lasting lips; each sentence was dictated
by the Holy Spirit. Albeit that Triors
was employed to write the histories
with hi3 fiery pen, God guided that p?n.
It may be that David touched hin harp,
and let sweet psalms of melody diop
from his fingers; but God moved his
hands over the living strings of his
golden harp. Solomon sang canticles of
love, and gave forlh words of consum
mate wisdom; but God directed his l.'ps.
and made the preacher eloquent. If I
follow the thundering Nahum when the
horses plow the waters; or Ha.bakkuk,
when he sees the tents of Cushan in af
fliction; if I read Malachi, when the
earth is burning like an oven; if I turn
to the smooth page of John, who tells of
love; or the rugged chapters of Pet it,
who speaks of fire devouring God's n
emies; if I turn aside to Jude, who
launches forth anathemas upon the fi"B3
of God, everywhere I find God speaklrg;
it is God's voice, not man's; the words
are God's words; the words of the Eter
nal, the Invisible, the Almighty, the Je
hovah of ages. This Bible is God's Bible;
and when I see it, I seem to hear a voica
springing up from It, saying: 'I am tie
Book of G6d: man, read me; I am God's
writing: study my page, for I was
penned by God; love me, for He is my
author, and you will see Him visible
and manifest everywhere.' "
ND we ought to read God's Word bfi-
cause it is the only revelation of
God to man. Ah, yes, nature may speak
of a God. As we behold the lilies of the
field which toil not nor spin, yet which
are clothed in a splendor and glory
which Solomon in all his glory never
knew, we exclaim In rapture, surelyonly
a God could have made these. As we lift
our eyes to the stars and behold the
vastness and splendor and intricacies of
the universe, the overpowering thought
sweeps over our soul that only a mighty.
powerful Creator and God could have
made them and hune them in space. A3
we feel the throb of life In our own
veins, as we behold life in its myriad
forms in the insect and animal worlds,
we are conscious of the existence of a
vital something which must have is
sued from a high controlling force and
power. The thought and sense of God
are all about us. How could it be other
wise when everything in the heavens
above and the earth beneath and the
waters under the earth bear the cer
tain impress of the creative hand and
fingers of God? But, notwithstandin;
all this, man needs the Bible to tell him
of the God which he discovers all about
him. It is not enough that man should
know there is a God, he must know
about that God and the way back to
Him. The Bible is the only source of
such knowledge. Therein we find not
only who and what God is, but who and
what man is, what his need, and how
God has wonderfully provided for that
need. The heart of the Bible is discov
ered to be the Christ, about Whom all of
God's thoughts and plans revolve, Who
is the full revelation of the character of
God, and Who redeems back to God a
sin-ruined race of beings.

it shows man how to treat his fellow
man: it instructs in political economy,
social order and domestic relations; it
exalts the heme; it indorses the nations
as the powers which have been ordained
of God, and it encourages and teaches
the truest patriotism and the bravest
devotion to uprightness and truth. The
man who reads the Bible and lives the
Bible is "thoroughly furnished unto
every good work." The man who neg
lects the Bible cannot think right, can
not act right, canno. be right. In the
days of Josiah, the king of Judah, the
Word of God was lost and forgotten in
the neglected and deserted temple. The
nation fell into grievous sins. Evea
the pious king did not realize the ex
ceeding low standard of morals and re
ligion in the nation, because he was ig
norant of God's Word, but when the roll
was found and read to the king he rent
his clothes and trembled before God, be
cause then he realized how far the ca
tion had wandered from God. To-day
there Is neglect of God's Word.. There
is a gradual drifting away from its high
standards, both In the national and
domestic life, both in the social and
business world. The present generation
is what it is because of Bible-reading
forefathers and mothers. With the neg
lect of the Bible in this generatien, what
will be the heritage which will be passed
down to succeeding generations? The
neglected Bible means a forgotten God.
And a forgotten God means rum and de
struction. Back to the Bible, we cry!
It is not enough that the few are read
ing the Bible. The many must read it
if the home and the nation are to be
conserved. The Bible is the Word of
God, and Is "Profitable for teaching, for
