The Sixth Comncsndment, which was
deferred at tbe time for which it was an
nounced, waa prexented at the First
Methodist Episcopal church last evening
by the pastor. Rev. F. W. Merrell. Rev.
Dr. Rhea, pastor of the First church 20
Tears ago, was presc nt and tdiressed the
congiegation in touching words of greet
ing at the close of tbe discourse: The text
was from Exedus 2(:13:
'Thou Slmlt Sot Kill."
This commandment, said the speaker,
touches upon tbe nacredness of human
life. Its sense may be better given bj
the words, "Thou shalt do no murder."
Scripture should be interpreted by scrip
ture. Tbe expression, "to kill," refers
to nil life, whether of man or the lower
animal. Whereas we are expressly told
in Genesis that "evtry moving thing that
livttb shall be meat for you." There
are those who regar j this commandment
as a prohibition of tintoal food for man.
They to by the nxme of vegetarians
Such an interpretation of this passage
transgresses tbe canon of interpretation
above rtftrrid to. Animals were later
divided into clean a ad unclean, and near
ly tbe same distinction prevails now with
respect to those fit and unfit for food.
Cut authority is nowhere given to man
wantonly to destroy animal life, to kill
for mere sport oro gratify the brutal
element in his nature, or to satisfy the
heartless behests of fashion. To take
life for any purpose except for man's well
fare is certainly against the spirit of this
Webster defines nurder thus, "to kill
with premeditated malice." Hence ail
taking of ht;man li e is not murder, as
human law speaks of degrees of guilt, so
tbt Ibible recognizes exceptions to the gen-
Law, human and divine, permits tbe
it niciion of death in the ex.cution of
justice. '"Whosotver sheddeth man's
biocd, by man shall his blood be shed."
The avenger of just ee is thus recognized
as t having powers that tbe or-
j dinary it d vidual dees not have.
Much has been urjed against the inflic
tion of capital punitLment and no doubt
with good reason. A.t the beginning of
this century in Etgland nothing was
rhcaper thhn human life. In the eye of
English law a Tab jit's life was worth
more than a mnn's, for an attempt on the
former cost the la.ter his life. There
were 23 capital t flenses. Amcng these
were Mich misdemeanors as injuring
Westminster bridge stealing five shill
ings, cutting young j-ees, etc. There has
been a great reaction from this extreme.
Tbe j.rosrcss of society is nowhere seen
more than in tbe estimate it places on bu
rn n li'e. This much-mooted question
will seme day be sett led by the total erad
ication of the vicious classes. Till then
society possesses the right to remove by
ibe death penalty tbe dangerous elements
and will probably continue to da so
According to tbe word of Sod there is
such a thing as juit and lawful war.
-ome good people bitve temples against
war for any reason, i ven in self-defense.
We are fast approaching a lime when all
swords shall be broken into plowshares
and pruning hooks. Wben England and
America repeatedly arbritate their differ
ences, certainly the ime is not far away
wben a universal peace congress shall
arbitrate all different es, and war will be
at an end. Till then tbe bible recognizes
the rights of nations to guard their own
interests. The doc'.rines of Tolstoi are
not based upon any lair interpretation of
God's word. Bloodshed in selfdefense
is permitted in the word of God. Acci
dental bloodsheding did not mean incur
ring of guilt from a biblical standpoint.
The cities of refuge were appointed for
the safety and protection of those who
bad unavoidedly by accident taken life.
Turning from these exceptions we find
that murder is of two kinds, self-murder
or euicide and murder ot another. The
former sin was exceedingly common
amocg the ascienM. Many eminent
heathen philasophcrs regarded suicide
aa a gallant and heroic way of ending
one's career. Brum 3 ard Cassius wben
defeated by Pompey, Hannibal, Cato and
Cleopatra all perished by their own hand.
But Aristotle called It "mere cowardice."
The bible goes beyond and stamps it
as a fearful crime. " It sweeps away the
possibility of repenteuce. It is directly
opposed to the fundamental principles of
religion, that this life is a probation. It
is contrary to faith iu God. The begin
ning of tbis Bin cat often be traced to
despondency and drspair. We can mark
the rock on which many a soul has
stranded. We may i a all charity believe
that most who take their own lives have
ceased to be responsible. But with
many the beginnings f the sin lie in lack
of confidence in God. Tbe first preven
tion is intelligent faitli in God. It is
hardly to be wondered at that an infidel
should under depressing circumstances
take his own life. I; would seem but s
na'ural result. Such a deed is impossi
ble to him who trusts God.
Turning to that sin which is specially
the object of this commandment, we tee
its heniousness in the following particu
lars. It is an interference with the pre
rogative of God, who is the author and
preserver of life. It is the worst form of
robbery for it is taking what you cannot
restore. Tbe murder .t is tbe peculiar
object of the judgments of heaven in
conscience and in discovery. Instance
the dream of Eugene Aram; instance the
Cronin case and many similar cases.
Again homicide is suicide, it is stabbing
the image ot God in which man was
created. It is also destructive of the pos
sibilities of repentaco and so of eternal
life. Oihers may be guilty beside the
actual murderer. According to God's
word, accessory per toes are guilty as
David in the murdi r of Uriah. Those
who consent to it are guilty as Pilate in
the death of Christ. He who conceals it
is guilty. Those wlo are in authority
and do not ponisti tbe crime, as Abab
in tbe c se of Naboth, those magistrates
who permitted a murderer to escape.
If now we take our Si viour's Interpreta
tion of thio commandment, we see that
few persons can plead innocent of a vio
lation of its real spirit "Whosoever la
angry with his brotber without a cause"
is guilty. Many an outwardly good moral
man is as guilty in the sight of high
heaven as he red handed murderer. The
seeds of crime are certainly within many
a man. Anger is the root of murder
who turd is tuiltlessT
Time wotfd not suffice to speak of the
ways in wbico tbis commandment is
violated in the taking ot human life.
