EArTISM AND THE REMISSION 0? 8INS.
A large audience assembled at the First
Baptist church last evening to lie r Di.
Taylor's sermon on "Bap lsm and the
Remission of Sins." The orJirance of
baptism was administered to seviral can
didates at the close of service.
The text was from Acfc 11:38:
'Then Peter e&id onto tham, repent,, ad be b-ip-tixed
everyone of yon in the name of Jtu Ch i-t
far the iemiion of fins."
Nothing is more perilous thaa to give
misleading interpretations of scripture,
said the pastor, and rong instructions to
those seeking sal valion. Terribl? is the
calamity when in spiritual things there
are blind leaders of the blind. Those
who seek to guide eouls into the way of
life must themselves le&ra from tae teach -incs
of Christ, of bis inspire! apostles,
being asbiated more or leis. in under
standing the scriptures by the expositions
of pious and intelligent chrutii's of the
past and present time, though notLiug is
of authority except what Jesu3 and the
apostles taught. Among the earliest
corruptions of christian faith, was the ten
dency toward wbat Dean Stanley termed
the "dreadful superstition," that no one
could be saved without the "wishing of
water," or ' unless he passed thr jugh the
waters of baptism." To this "supersti
tion," more than to any other ctuse. is
owing to the manifoldjcorruptio:i6 which
have cursed the church, for the reason
that it brought into her member hip those
destitute of piety and the "rectivingj of
the holy ghost." Thsre is no more per
sistent tendency of human nature than
that of seeking the divine favor through
ordinances. It is the gen of all elaborate
and costly religious rituals, hea'hen and
christian. It is the principle underlying
the doctrine that sins are retiitted in
1. What are Christ's teachings as to
how the sinner may have eternal life?
Among His earliest teachirga and where
He was expressly instructing cne as to
how he might enter the kingdan ef God,
(John III), he never once refers to bap
tism, nor does he anywhere in a.l his
teaching speak of baptism as ir any way
connected with salvation; with '.he possi
ble exception of MaikXVI. 1C; but there
baptism is not made necessary to salva
tion; besides so much doubt exists as to
the genuineness of the paragraph (Mark
XVI, 9 20) that it cannot be quoted as
authority la favor of any doctrine.
In the commission, (Matthews,
XXVIII, 19.) he commands bis disciples
to first disciple and then baptize. Bat he
does teach tbat those who believe have
eternal life. See John III, 10; Y, 24; VI,
40, 47. There is not anywhere in his
teachings even a remote hint that sins are
remitted in baptism, bat he does- say that
his blood is shed "or their remission.
2. Do the apostles teach that sins are
remitted in baptism? Those wto hold to
the doctrine of baptismal remission have
attached peculiar meanings to the terms
"repentance," "faith," "reget eration ,"
"the new birih," "born again," "co m
mission," "change of heart," "obedience
to the gospel," "born of the spirit," and
"the work of the spirit;" meaiings that
are unBcriptural and diffierent from those
attached to them by Evangelical chris
tians universally, and which betr the seal
and superscription of an able and theor
izing sectarian leader and not the Beal of
the Holy Ghost. Using these terms in
their scriptural meaning and in the mean
ing attached to them by all Evangelical
christians, do the apostles teach that sins
are remitted in baptism? Most emphati
cally not. Peter's woids, Acts II
38. are quoted to prove it. But,
baptism is here used representative
ly. True scriptural repentance is accom
panied by saving faith. Verse 4 J, informs
m that Peter spoke ''many otb:r words.
which are not here recorded. The Greek
proposition "tti" here trenslated "for'
may be properly and correctly rendered
'on account of ." Every pas3a e quoted
as proving baptismal remission when cor
rectly interpreted fails to support the
doctrine, as Acts XXII.16. I'aul J,be
lieved" several days before his baptism
Titus 111:4,5. The agent of the "wash
ing" of regeneration here is said to be the
Holy Ghost. I Peter 111:20,21. Baptism
is said to be a "figure" of Salva'.ion but
to put away sins. The apostlee, howev
er, do leach that men are jusJfied and
saved by faith, John I, 11,12. 13; XX 31
Acta X, 43; XIII, 39; XVI, 81; 3om. IV,
16. VI; X, 8, 9, 10.
The scriptures teach that sin are re
mitted by the blood of Christ when we
believe. Matthew XXVI.28. Hebrews
IX.14, I John 1,7; IV.10, and that we are
saved throu gh faith, not baptism Eph
11,8. The theory that the gospel dispen
sation did not begin till the day cf Pente
cost is absurd. See Mark I; Luke
Baptismal remission is beset with prac
tical difficulties. If it be true, the
pentitent thief never saw par
adise; neither can the peni
tent and believing sick be saved, and ail
the godly, consecrated, noble, christian
m;n and women, who are not baptized,
are lost. A supposition, too horrible to
bs entertained for a moment by any ra
tional mind, and yet to admit the salva
tion of such is to throw away the dac trine
of baptismal remission.
THE TRCE OBJECT OF BAPTISM.
1 . To set forth the obedience, death
burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ,
Rome VI. 3. 4. Col. II. 1,2; Gal. Ill 27.
2. It is a symbolic fulfillment of right
eousness. Matthew 111, 13.17.
3. It represents a state of subjection
and obedience to the Father, Son and
Holy Ghofct. Matthew XXVIII, 19.
It occupies a most important place; is
the initial act of the obedience of those
who have received Christ as a personal
Savior. In it are cvstalized and retires
sented the most important truths of salva
tion and all believers are commanded to
believe it, but it is tnt necessary to com
plete the fact of salvation. Inquirers
need to be told to receive Christ, John
:2, not to receive an ordinance. To dis
direct them to an ordinance, for the re
mission is misleading and deceiving fa
tally, and leading death, not life.

Between midnight Saturday and one

who raised a window in tbe rear, and
after making themselves solid with the
watch dog which was asleep in the saloon.

smoking tobacco, a bottle cf wbL-ky.
wo razors and 30 pieces of old coin, and
escaped. At soon as the discovery of the
burglary was mads yesterday morning.
ie police were notified and at once com
menced an investigation They were
not long in determining that the thieves
were Rock Island people familiar with
the premises, and soon traced them to
the head of Twenty-second street, where
the contents of two kegs of beer had been
consumed and one of the kegs used for
firewood, the thtrd keg having been drop
ped on the way up and was recovered by
the polics. Marshal Miller tracked the
burglars to Davt opart, and the police on
that side were put in communication
with the facts. At 3 o'clock yestrriay
