How to Ki? a f hnrch.
' Tho >chprch os a whole is hold In
High esteem by ali mon. Hut tho in
dividual constituency is often doubt oil.
This is brought about by tho failure
of tho members to comprehend that
each of them advertise tho whole.
Carelessness on tho part of christian
>plo Is tho church's w?rst foo to
iy. It is my purpose to lllumlno tho
,Ath that^many tread. There aro
th roo ways* to quench Oro.,
^ First, smother ll. I can but Illu
Irdtn this by a christian sceno of my
boyhood. The.old church was having
ito Christmas cheer (or tree). It was
packed, Tho cbmlng'of Santa with
bk, cottoa covered coat and great pack
pail brought tho climax to tho Joyous
hour'.' Suddenly Santa's cap touohod
?'..tiny taper and a terrible tragedy
started. Ho stood a living fire. Men
lost their senses. Women . screamed
find fought; Costly.' windows , werd
crushed, doors woro BWopt from their
Sages and a score of legs and arm's
&.pn'iV. .ono, man in that vast throng
hod prosancn of mind nnough to oct.
ile, caught UP "overcoats and robes,
and Anally t.-ocoodrd in wrapping
them about poor Santa mun the cruel
flamas had been, smothered.. Bnt hot
galil they .had sent, their .deadly
fernen Into tho lungs of our splendid
Sunday' school superintendent, ' who
was our Santa that night.
How smother a church? Put U on
k- "purely-^'commercial footing; Wrap
tho cloak of ? .worldliness, about it.
/.?fldga In tho pastor with instructions
to wink ut tho moro common sinful
'.bracticesV: Tell him that you want
no' poor people lu' Ute nows. Agree
With tho worldling who tells you that
.tba lodges ore far superior to the
Church*VWlpe out. ell dividing lines
between worldliness and churchliness.
Lot church folks do everything that
?un-church folks do. Fill church of
floes'-With worldliness, and let the
preacher count them. . I think that
: you can easily extinguish- the, warmth
and glow that and church noa hod.
> Second, lot tho jfiro burn. oct. Woa?
torn; Arpirlcmen employ th?B method.
When great' flambs thrchton to swoop
tho county or stato, they ruah forth
with .teams and plows and surround
: t^io 'c^nCagrailon';:."-.jrh? fires , slowly".
? cat themselves to death.
To lot' tho . church . fires burn out,
don't odd tue) to. , .them, Stay away
from the,'Sunday Behool, tho prayer
;hitar,',the- preaching programmes. ?Let
, ??ar little trille keep you away, Stay
homo an entertain worldly company,
r&ftat^?&ves a floe ImfcreoBloo of you?

;sfWroy thc other ten. . If your church
;?JWes oro low, eec if yo* haven't, plow
?d deep furrows of indifference, neg
lect and foolish faith about it.
Thirdly? throw cold water upon the
Pira. Thia lost is the most common
method of quenching thc lire. Water
l3 flro'B master, ye together they do
make a powerful combination.
How can I throw cold water upon
If you go regularly, never ask any
ano to go with you. Act os though
you wore ashamed. . I know c Sun
lay Behool superintendent who has
Ilassed my home every Sunday for the
past ten years and has never invited
me to his Sunday school or church.
Always come to church late. Never
come enthusiastically. Always take a
back. seat. Don't look pleasant; re
member you are in church. Remem
ber, you will have to sit here one
Hour, and t>r> air munt be perfect
Last week you sat in a dead stuffy
show house for three hours and paid
for the privilege and never noticed the
rotten air. Of course thc preacher 1B
hbt perfect, so go after him. His
lifo 1B pure, his heart warm ned he
comes; burdened with the heartaches
of tho" stck, tho poor, tho aged. Yes,
go after tho preacher. Tell him how
dead tho church ls: (Why not tell him
how long you have been dead?) Nev?
or thank him for tho1 hours he has
spent pouring over 'his PUROS. He
must conto mew- every service. Whon
the service is over, revcamber .. tho
church is no place, to be friendly,
pon't shake hands with any one.
Boah out as you would at the theatre
Ono would think tho building was on
flrb by tho way our churches empty
those days. On thc way .home don't
lot any ono sus pee that yon have
been at church.: Try not to pay any
attention to the' church altor you
leave it,- Don't refer tb it all week.
Never admit that lt ima any, claim
upon your time,' thought,- talent, pray
er or money. Keep every cent you
can away from" tho church. Poverty
ls a sur? path to humility s Then,
don't 'forgive any one. . Forgiving
heals, hurts. So don't be charitable.
If you read church literature, lt may
enthuse you, and yon will want to do
moro for its groat' enterprises. Why
should you read church literature?
It is not necessary for you to keep
Informed concerning the; movements
of its .millions of members,'-thousands
of pastors I and. hundreds bf millions
of, dollars invested Iii church institu
tions. U you read church papers,
you' might get rome idea of the mag
nitude of the church. Out ot your ig
norance you can throw a constant
stream of cold water upon tho flory
?pal pf.t?'c church. My r. frlonds,
