One lion would conquer a thousand kids.
The battle opens. There are a great
multitude of Syrians under General
Ben-hadad, strong as lions. The Israel
ites are few and- weak, like two little
flocks of kid. Who beat? The lions, of
course Oh, no; tho kids, for it all de
pends vyhethqr God is on the side of the
lions or tho kidB. After the battle 100,
000 Syrians lay dead on the field, and
27.000, attempting to fly, came along by
a great wall, which toppled and crushed
them to death.
Which was tho stronger weapon
great Goliath's sword or little David's
sling? David had five smooth stones
from the brook. Ho only used one in
Btriking down Goliath. He had a sur
plus of ammunition. He had enough to
take down four more giants if they bad
appeared in tho way. It all depends
upon whether God is on the Bide of the
shepherd boy or on, thp side of the giant
THPiPUnUBHKES AND HELiaiON.
Tlere,have been many in our day who
have ventured the opinion that Christi
anity 'is falling back, and that in SO years
it wjll be extinct. They found their
opinion on the assumed fact that the Bi
ble is not as much of a book as it used to
be, and that portions of it are repulsive
to tho people. I reply by asking, Which
one of the publishing houses of New
York, Philadelphia, Boston or Chicago
Is publishing the Bible, today with iho
omission of a single verse or chapter?
Are not our publishers intelligen'.Mnen?
And would they contrary to their finan
cial interests continue to publish the Bi
bio without the omission of a single chap
ter or a single verso if it were becoming
an unpopular book and the people did
not want it?
If Harpers or Appleton or Scribner
or Lippincott should publish a Bible
with the omission of ono chapter, they
would not sell 10 copies in 10 years. The
fact that throughout Christendom there
are hundreds of printing presses print
ing the word of God without the omis
sion of a chapter or a verse proves that
the Bible is popular, and tho fact that
there are more being printed in this dec
ade than any other decade proves that
the Bible is increasing.in popularity,
I go through tho courtrooms of tho
country. Wherever I find a judge's bench
or a clerk's desk I find the bible. By
what other book would they tako solemn
oath? What is very apt to be among the
bride's presenta? The Bible. What is
very apt to bo put in the trunk of the
young man when he starts for city life?
The Bible. Voltaire predicted that the
Biqle, during the nineteenth century
would become an obsolete book. Well,
we are pretty nearly through thp nine
teenth century. The Bible is not obso
lete yqt. There ia.npt.much prospect of,
its becoming obsojetp, but I have tp tell
you tjiat thqt rqom-rthe very room in
which Vollteiro wrote that prediction
Borne time ago was crowded from floor
to ceiling with Bibles for Switzerland.
Suppose the congress of the United States
should pass a law that no Bibles should
be printed in tho United States.
If there are 80,000,000 grown men and
women in the country, then there would
bo 80,000,000 people armed against such
a law. But suppose the congress of the
United States should pass a law that
Macaulay'a history or Charles Beade's
novels should not be read could you get
half as large an army or the fourth as
large an army? In other words, there
are. as you know and I know, a thou
sand men who would die for their Bibles
where there aro CO men who would die
for any other book. The fact that there
are now more Bibles being-printed tlian
ever before, that publishers find it a
financial, interest for them to continue
the Bible, proves that this book is still
tha most popular book on tho planet
A SOURCE OF COUFOUT,
"But," say those who are antagonistic,
"Christianity is falling back from the
fact that the church is not as much re
Bpected as it used to be and is not as in
fluential." I reply to that with tye sta
tistic that one denomination tt.eMetU
odist church according to a etfUijEMc
given me by one of their bjshope, dedi
cates on an average a new church every
day of the year. Three, hundred and
blxty-flve new churches in one denomi
nation in a year and over a thousand
new churches built every year In this
country. Does that look as though the
church were failing In its power and
were becoming a wornout institution?
Around which institution lp our com
munities gather the tno3t ardent affec-
Hnrm? Tha uoatoflice. the IlOiei, WO

what building do they Bolicit? The

they want music on tho sad occasion do
they select the "Marseillaise" hymn, or
"God Save the Queen," or our own grand
national air? No, they want the old
hymn with which we sang their old
Christian mother to sleep. They want
the Sunday school hymn that their little
girl sang the last Sabbath afternoon she
Was out before she was seized with the
awful Bickness that broke father's heart
and mother's heart. Oh, you know as
well as I do I shall not dwell on it anv
lpnger the church of God, instead of
being a wornout institution, stands near
er the sympathies of- the people than it
over did and eclipses all other insitu
But our antagonists go on and Bay
that Christianity is falling back, in tho
fact that infidelity is bolder now and
more blatant than it ever was. I deny
the statement. Infidelity ia not near so
bold now as it was in the days of our
fathera and grandfathers. Thero were
times in this country -when men who
were openly and above board infidel and
antagonistic to Christianity could be
elected to high office. Now, let some
man wishing high position in the state
proclaim"hiniself the foe of Christianity
and an infidel, how many-states of the
Union would, he carry; how many
ceunties: how many wards in Brooklyn?
Ah, my friends, infidelity in this day
is not half as bold as it used to be. If ir
comes now, it is apt to come under the
disguise of rhetorio or fantastic senti
mentality. I know if a man with great
intelligence does Declomo an infidel and
begins an attack, on Christianity it
makes great excitement of course it
does, and peoplecorne to the conclusion,
weakminded Christians come to the con
clusion, that everything is going over
board because some, man of strong in
tellect assails Christianity..
If a -man jumps overboard from a Cu
nard steamer, he makes more excite
ment than nil the 600 sane passengers
who continue in the berths or on tho
decks, but does that stop the ship? Does
that wreck ull the BOO passengers? It
makes great 'excitement when a man
leaps from a platform or a pulpit into
Infidelity, but does that hinder our glo
rious Bible- from taking its millions into
the skies? I tell you infidelity is not
half as bold now as it, used to be.
DIVERSITY OP SCIENTIFIC TnODOHT.
Do you suppose such things could be
enacted now as were enacted in the days
of Robespierre, when a shameless wom
an was elected to be goddess, and she
waa carried on a golden chair to a ca
thedral, and the people boWod down to
her as a divine being and burned in
cense before her she to take tho place
of the Bible, and of Christianity, and of
the Lord Almighty? And while that
ceremony was going on in the cathedral,
in the chapels and in the corridors ad
joining the cathedral scenes of drunken
ness and debauchery and obscenity were
enacted such ns.tbo world had never seen.
Could sqch a thing as that transpire
now? No, sir. The police would swoop
on it, whether in Paris or New York.
Infidelity is not half as bold now as it
used to bo.
"But," say our antagonists, "Christi
anity is falling back because science, its
chief enemy, is triumphing over it."
Now, I deny that there is any war be
tween science and revelation. There is
not a fact in science that may not be
made to harmonize with tho statements
of the liible. So said Hugh Miller; so
said Joseph Henry; so said Professor
Hitchcock; sq said Prpfessor Silliman; bo
said Professor Mitchell,
Joseph Henry, the leading scientist of
America, better known and honored in
the royal societies transatlantic than any
other American, liyed and died a be
liever in the religion of Jesus Christ.
Joseph IJenry knew all the facts of geol
ogy and yet believed tho book of Gene
sis. He knew all the facts of astronomy
and yet believed tho book of Joshua, the
sun and moon stapding still. Joseph
Henry knew all tho anatomy of man and
fish and yet.belioved the book of Jonah.
If the scientists of the day were all
agreed, and they came up with solid
front to attack our Christianity, perhaps
they might make some impression upon
it, bt they are not agreed. It is often
said that we religionists are failing in
our advocacy of Christianity because we
differ in our theology. I tell you we do
not differ inside the church in theology
half as much as they differ outside the
church in science. If they reject our re
ligion because we differ on some minor
points, wo might just as well reject
science because the scientists differ, but
as far as I can tell the war of infidel
science against Christianity jf not so se
vere as it used to be, because theso men
ara antagonistic to each other, and as far
as I can tell it is gping to be a war be
tween telescope and telescope, Leyden
jar and Leyden jar, chemical apparatus
and chemical apparatus, iney ub uui
agree on anything.
tDo you suppose, that this Bible theory
aboat the oriirin of life is going to be
,oye$hrownby men who ka,va different
theories-frCO aerent.tneone aDout mo
origin of life? And when Agassiz comes
opt and puts both feet on the doctrine
of evolution and says in regard to many
scientists, "I notice that these yonng
naturalists are adopting as theories in
science things which bjive not passed
under observation," Agassiz saw what
WO all see that there are men who talk
very wisely who know but very little,
and that just as soon as a young scien
tist finds out the dltlerence between tne

agreed in their theories and came up
with solid facts against Christianity, I
say perhaps they might make some im
pression, but they do not agree. Dar

upon Cope. Herschel even charged up
on Ferguson. They do not agree about
the gradation of the species; they do not
agree about embryology. What do they
Herschel wrote a whole chapter on
what he calls "Errors In Astronomy."
La Placo says that the moon was not
put in the right placo; that if it had been
put four times tho distance from our
world there would havo been more har
mony in tho universe. But Lionville
comes up just in time to prove that the
Lord was wise and put tho moon In tho
right place. How many colors wqven
into the light? Seven, says N,e.wton.
Three, says David Brewster. How nigh.
is the aurora borealis? Two and a half
miles high, says Lias. One hundred and
sixty-five miles, says Twinhj? How far
is tho Bun from the earth? Seventy-six
million miles, says Lacaille; 82,000,000
miles, says Humboldt; 00,000,000 miles,
Bays Henderson; 104,000,000 miles, says
Mayer. Only a little difference of 28,'
000,000 milesl These men say wo do
not agree in religion. Do they agree in
Bcience? Havo they come np with solid
front to assault our glorious Christian
ity? Even mathematicians do not agree.
Taylor's logarithms are found to have
faults in them. The French metric
system has wrong calculations. Talk
about exact sciencesl They are inexact.
As far as with my little knowledge I
have been able to explore, the only ex
act Bcience Is Christianity. There is
nothing under which you can so appro
priately write, "Quod erat demonstran
dum." "Gentlemen of the jury, havo you
agreed upon your verdict?" the court or
the clerk says to the jury, having been
out all night, on coming in. "Have yon
agreed on your verdict?" If they say
yes, tho verdict Is taken and recorded.
If they say, "No, we havo not agreed,"
they are sent back to the jury room. If
one juryman should Bay, "I think the
man is guilty of murder," and another
juryman should say, "I think he is guilty
of manslaughter,and another juryman
should say," I think he is guilty of as
sault and battery with intent to kill,"
tho judge would lose his patience and
say, "Go. bock to your room now and
make up a verdict Agree on some
thing." Well, my friends, there has been a
great trial going on for centuries and for
ages between Skepticism, tho plaintiff,
versus Christianity, tho defendant The
scientists have been impaneled and
sworn on the jury. They have been gone
for centuries, somo of them, and they
como back, and we say, "Gentlemen of
tho jury, have you ogreed upon a ver
dict?" They Bay, ''No, wo have not
agreed." Then we say, "Go back for a
few more centuries and then come in
and see If you can agree, see If you can
render some verdict." Now, there is not
the meanest prisoner in the -Tombs court
who would! be condemned by a jury that
could not agree, and. yetyou. expect us
to renounce our glorious Christianity
for such a miserable verdict as theso
men have rendered, they themselves not
having been able to agroe.
A WEAK BOMBARDMENT.
But my subject shall no longer be de
fensive; it must be aggressive. I must
show you that instead of Christianity
falling back it is on the march, and
that tb coming religipn,of the world ia to
be tho religion of the Lord Jesus Christ
10,000 times intpnsified. It is to take
possession of everything of all laws, al
manners, all customs, all cities, all nar
tions. It is going to bo so mighty as
compared with what it has been, so
much more mighty that ir will seem
almost like a new religion.
I adopt this theory because Christian
ity has gone on straight; ahead notwith
standing all tho bombardment, and in
fidelity has not destroyed a church, or
crippled a minister, or rooted out one
verse of tho Bible, and now thoir am
munition seems to be pretty much ex
hausted. They cannot get anything new
against Christianity, and if Christianity
has gone on under the bombardment of
centuries and still continues to advance
may wo not conclude that, as the powder
and shot of the other gldo scera to be ex
hausted, Christianity is going on with
more rapid stride?
I find an encouraging fact in the
thought that the secular press in this
day and the pnlpit 6eera harnessed in
the gome team for the proclamation .of
tho gospel. Tomorrow there will not be
a banker on Wall street or State street
or Third Btreet who will not havo in bis
pocket or on his table treatises on Chris
tianity, calls to repentance and Scripture
passages, 20 or 80 of them, in the.re
ports of tho Christian churches of this
city and other cities. Why, that thing
would liave been impossible a few years
ago. Now on Monday morning and
Monday evening the secular press
spreads abroad more religious truth than
all the tract societies of the country
spread in the other six days. Blessed
be the tract societlest We hail them,
and we hail these others.
I say it would have been impossible a
few years ago. Hundreds of letters
would have come to the secular news-,
paper offices, saying, "Stop taf paper;
we have religion on Sunday; doo't give
. through the week. Stop my
Daper." But I have been told that many H
of the secular papers have their largest
circulation on Monday morning, and the
whole population of this country are be
cominir sermon readers. Besides that,
have you not noticed the papers pro-
ww-U Lava religions discussions in them?
"VZlt.,?ZZrrheu there was
not a decent paper in the United States
that hd not a dlscnsslpn on the doctrine
of eternal punishment. Small wits made
mmy, I know, but there was not an in
telligent man in the United State that
as a result of that controversy In regard
to eternal punishment did not ask him

Vernon was tho son of an. English
squire. Ho was brought, up in great
elegance. Thero was n man working on
the place of tho namP of Ralph. Vernon
used to often talk with Ralph. After
awhile Vernon went off to college and
came back with his mind full of skepti
cism. He talked his fikoptlcism to Ralph,
the workman. After awhile Vernon
went from homo again, was gone for
years, came dock, aim among nis nrst
questions when getting home was,
"Where is Ralph?" "Obi" said the fa'
ther, "Ralph is in prison waiting for the
day of execution."
Vernon hastenod to sco Ralph. Ralph,
looking through the wicket of tho pris
on, saidi "Vernon, how good you nro tp
come and see met I am glad to see you.
I hardly expected you would como and

Vernon, I want you to promixo me ore

ference how we lived, we would come

By almost superhuman effort tho sen

transported to another country for life.
