A SERMON BEFORE THE GRADUA
The tn.-a Acniovenicnta ot Man in tho
yuyalual and Intollooti-al World, Duo to
?bo in nul ration of tho Almighty-Hil
spirit otvoth Understanding.
On Sunday morning, wbon Hio
largo congregation had assembled
In tho collogocbupol to boar tho bae
cnlauroute Hermon which Hov. Dr
Marshal of Anderson lind consen
ted to preach, it was with profound
sympathy and regret that presi
dent MeOaslan rend a letter from
the distinguished divine, which
stated that on account of the severe
illness of his wife, Dr. Marshall
would not he abbi to lill his appoint
ment, in this emergency and at a
late hour, Hov. E. O. Kriorson had
consented to preach. Below wo
give the full text of his eloquent
Joh, x.\xii,s: "Tltoro Isa spirit tn mau
and thc inspiration of the Almighty
itivotli him undoretandhut."
It can hardly Ix; supposed that Killin
intended in theso words simply to ro
poat what Moses had said in rogurd to
tho creation of man that < ?od breathed
Into man's nostrils tlio breath of lifo and
man became a living soul -to evince Ids
agroeuiont with him. The uso of the
word "inspiration" and tho present
tense of tho vorh to glvo, implying con
tinuous action, won ld scent to intimato
tl.ut he meant SOIllOthlllg morn than to
refer to man's creation. Inspiration
presupposes creation and tho present
tense of the vorh to glvo implies that tlio
act denoted by that ?voi d is SOIllOthlllg
that is uni uti on now. May not Kliliu
have Intended to express the idea that
ult our intellectual activity is tho ro.uut
Ol' (Jud's Spirit operating in and through
our facilillos like a groat vitalizing mo
llumi without whoso coagoncy all
thought ami rolloolion would ne Impos
sible? May he not have meant to ailinn
thal all our kllOWlodgO instead of hoing
the rosultof our ow u montai oUorts is tho
product of Clod's Spirit uciing on uml
co-operating with our spiritual po wort??
That i ?od can and does net upon our
minds without disturbing our froo-agou*
cv or our responsibility is a truth that
ifcs ut the hm i.dat ion of roliglon and no
ono cnn deny. Tho human mind with
its various fuculties is like a harp with
Its Strings attuned to tho harmonics ot
nature ready to respond in a variety of
soundsacuordlog as lt is struck hy the
plectrum of (lou's Spirit.
Let it bo observed that 1 distinguish
this general ordinary operation of thc
Spirit on men's minds from that special
extraordinary supernatural guidiuiuo
which ho imparted to the writers of the
Scriptures. Thal was inspiration in tho
narrow technical sense of tho word.
Thal was dosignod to secure accuracy
and infallibility in writing the Scrip
tures. In thut'narrow technical bouse

he wore nothing more i han mutter, a
stock or stone, lie COU ld not receive the
Spirit, Tho Spirit acts upon matter, it

it is not ahsurd to speak of un inspired

of blues over tho rumor. We under

don't believe that such a rumor printed

simply ridiculous for (?en. Hoke or any
