The"8ecoDd C( n mendm nt.False and
True Worship." the second in the series
of sermons on the Ten Commandments,
was presented Sunday evening at the
b ist Methodist Episcopal church, by the
pastor. P': W. Mtrrell. Despite the
snow bound condition of ttings an ex
cellent coneregation pathererl h
was greeted with a full choir
and a special musical prolamine that
showed careful preparation, acd evinced
the musical talent for which the choir is
noted. The discourse wss from Ex.
The Second Commacdnn nt, 6aid the
speaker, relates to the ordinances of
worship, wer&hip false and Hue Idola
try is either internal, residing in the af-
fections and dispositions, or cross and
external, consisting in outward visible
worship of any objects intended or not
intended to represent God. The former
is forbidden in the First C unmandrrent
and was presented in the former dis
course, the latter is present! d now:
This commandment reft th evidently
only to images and reprei cntatiocs de
signed fcr worship. It tori. iris, first, the
ranking of images; secoti'l, the worship
of them. This commandment was evi
dently never intended to interfere with
arts of sculpture, painting and engraving,
except in so far as ttiese arts were mait
subservient to a false worsjip. Bui the
Jews have so interpreted this conjmnr.d
mett, at least since their Babylonian cap
tivity, as to regard it as forbidding the
practice of the Us 12 arts. A
fair interpretation will. however,
ee no such conflict. for Moe
was commanded to place the cherubim
ever the mercy seat and to embroider
them on the coverings of th ? tabernacle.
Christianity has hnd its influence for good
on art. its RtphaMs acd Anelos. It has
touched art and ennobled t.nd developed
it, especially in music. Th: worship of
images opens an all im portant question.
All would agree that the worship ot tbe
image itself is absurd and superstitions.
Isaiah ironically pictures the 1 !oiator as
warming himself and cooking bis food
with ODe end of a piece of wood ami
fashioning the other end inti an idol and
worshipping it. Logic would suggest
teat divinity wou'd not resiae in one end
of a s'ick more than in an ther. True,
relieion is against all such superstitions
and forbids consulting of familiar spirits,
wizards and necrommces. Snui was
disobedient to God and incf nsistent with
his own actions in consuliit g the witch
of Endor. The most superstitious of all
people are those who canno", accept tbe
mysteries of religion.
But may not thought be fixed and at
tention concentrated by the image? In
answer it is cnojgh to say ttiat God hds
drawn no .such distinction. The one
leads to tbe other; such i as been tbe
logic of history. Time was accordina to
profane history, when heathen religions
were without idols, and wh n tbey con
demned them as Muea did in early Rome.
Representatives of Goi are always his.
so says the bible. God is a spirit and all
representations of . God as untrue,
minister to wrong conception of
God and so tend awar fr;.m God
Idolatry is inseparably licked with
vice. So says history; 83 sain the ex
perience of Israel. O jr ri ligious wor
ship is to be governed by tie power of
faith and not imagination, ibis com
mandment does not appear in the cate
cbisms or books of devotion of the Rom-
ist church, and the penalty is at'achrd to
tbe first commandment, necessitating a
different enumeration of tha command
ments. The question becomes an t il important
one to every soul that wonlc please God,
what is the nature of true wir&hipT It is
gratifying to know that this has received
a direct answer from Christ in his con
versation with the Samarian worn in.
The Samaritans worshipped Jehovah
nnder tbe form of the goldai. calf, which
Jerobam set up at Din and ethel for po
litical reasons. From that conversation
we draw two important thoigb's. True
worship must be. first, spiritual, and
secondly, in truth, sincere. It was con
demnatory of the Sama'i.an worship
which made the idol a mer3 symbol of
God. It condoms that insircerity which
a lows that worship miy te separated
from obedience; that morality is totally
distinct from relicion . Be ace we find
here a broad distinction between the true
religion and all false relif ionB. The
bible teaches everywhere that, "If I re
gard iniquity in my heart, ti e Lord will
not bear me." It illustrates these words
with the case of King Saul, whose sacri
flee of oxen, sheep, etc., wai not accep.
ted because of disobedience. No soul
can approich God in real worship with
out tnrning from sin. All f ennine wor
ship involves genuine repentance.
Praying by the yard, or by the piece, is
empty formation, and a mociery of God,
instead of worship. The ' vain repiti
tions"of the heathens we i re to avoid.
The few words of the Publican, "God. be
merciful to me a 6inner." meant more
than all the formal prayers f the Phari
see. We find here a broa 1 distinction
between false and true worship.

fairly good entertainment to a fairly good
