A VERY BAD POLICY
OUR REGULAR SUNDAY SERMON.
An Elegant Discourse by Rev. Win.
Brooklyn. N. Y.-Dr. William Young
Chapman., pastor of the Lafayette Ave
nue Presbyterian Chirch. Buffalo.
preached Sunday at both services ill
the Central Presbyterian Church. 1I
the morning he had as his sulljoct
"Churchgoing Abolished." The text
.was from leve:ation xxi:22: "And i
saw no temple therein." Dr. Chap
Among many things in this siublimic
apocalypse of St. John hard to be un
derstood there is one thing that s- nds
out with clearness and certainty. and
that is the vision of the perfected
church. the ideal society. It is the
same church triumphmait and perfict
there that is militant and defecve
here. The same souls that stru'ggle
and suffer here are they that walk -n
white and wave)i palms of victory there.
Here we see as in a g Iass darkiy.
There they see face to face. Here we
know in part. there they know as they
are known. John had given to him t
divine horoscope.revealing the consum
mation and absolut'e perfeetiol (if the
essential characteristics of the kingadonm
of God concentrated. in the imperial
capital of the universe-tile city ot
God. By every sort of figure and syi
bol are its glories set forth. And we
learn as much about it by what is said
negatively as by what is said positive
ly. Thus we are told it has streets of
gold and gates of pearl and a sea o'
glass and all the most costly ind beau
tiful things of this woril. whle all
that is disagreeable-pain. sicknss,
sorrow, sin, death-is -wanting there.
There is nothing to hurt or amno. nlo
night, no iore sea. no temple.
And it strikes us at first thouht as
very strange that there shotld be no
temple, no central place of worsnimp ill
a city which ve are accustomed to
think is altogether devoted to religion.
And yet the text states 1 great truth
which I want to treat broadly. and I
believe the text contains easily the sub
ject by which I have chosen a entitle
this discourse. "Churchgoing Aol
ished." The end being attained. the
means are discontinued. Lence there
are no more churches. no times. nor
places, nor forms: no liturgies, nor rit
uals; no ecclesiastical naehiniery such
as we know here.
And, surely, this must come as a we!
come anuouncement to many a tired
churchgoer in this world who fi1ns his
religious duties more or less irksome.
and to many a non-churchgoer. who
does not feel quite comforte ble in. his
neglect of formal religious exercises.
Many there are who indulge an indif
ferent hope of heaven as a sorc of
Mohammedan paradise. where they'
may enjoy an eternal holiday, basking
in tile unereated rays, drinking from
and bathing in the waters of the foun
talin of life. eating the twelve ananetr
of fruits and sailing on the glassy sea.
But they would hardly be attracted to
a place where this ceaseless round of
ecclesiastical duties should go on for
ever. Imagine such a one enjoying the
delights of that glorious city, counting
the towvers thereof. marking wvell her
bulwarks and admiring her foundia
tions of jasper and sapphire and chal
cedony and sardius and emerald and
sardonyx and chrysolyte and lberyl and
topaz and chrysoprasus and jacinth
and amethyst, when suddenly there
comes a peal from the golden bells and
poor soul, he must take himself off to
Let such a one be comforted. for
John says he saw no temple there. and
we dare to infer from that statement
that there is no synagogue, nor mieet
ing house, nor Sunday, nor formal re
ligious exercise. "for the Lord God Al
mighty and the Lamb are the temple
It becomes us to inquire more closely
into the truth involved here. And if
what John saw was the church trium
phant, if the conditions he saw were

is continually coming down from God
out of heaven, then we ought to be re
alizinlg more anld more on earth that
I believe that condition is illustrated
by the progressive church of Christ on
earth. Think for a moment of the ad
vantages we have over the ancient
Jewish wor'shiner. He had his ce-ntvral
place of worship. Three times at year
he must make his pilgrimage to Jeru
salem, from even the remotest corner
of the land, Ov-er many a rugged mile
he must travel with his family and his
sheep and oxeni for sacritice and his
tent anld provision for his journey. ini
order to perform his religious duties.
There at JIerusalemn was tile temple.
There he exp~ected to meet God. 0or at
least there God would be propitious.
There was the priest who could offer
his sac'ritiee and present his confession
to God. There was the holy place anil
the most holy place, the locus of the
Jewish worship. Even in far off lands.
when he wvorshiped he tur'ned his face
toward the temple, as if his heart were
there, in any case.
Then, too, his daily devotions found
expression inl a most elaborate ceremo
nial. There we-re (ilvers washings, ams
there were multifarious causes of unl
cleanness. Therec were tithings an'l
manifold offerings. There were sin or
ferings and peac'e offerings. a'. asso
ciated with infinite troublle to the wor
shipem'. These minute requirements
were infinitely multiplied by tihe Jew
in the time of Christ and ils anostaes.
so that Peter spoke of it as a yoke
'which neither our fathers nom' we
wer'e able to bear."
Now; it was ilimmnity from these in
tolerable burdens that w;as tin' first
great p)ractieni hoon of Christianity.
Our L''-t stated the precious truth to
tihe wonman alt tile well. Said she.
"Our father's worshiped in this moun
tain (Terezim)i. and ye say that in Je
rutsalem is thle place 'here men-I ought
to 'worship." .Jesus saithl unto her,
"Woman, believe Me. the hour comethl
when ye shall neither in this mnountain,
nor vet at .Jerusalem, worship the
F'ather. But the hour c'ometh and now;
is. w;hen the true wvorshipers shall wor

God is a spirit, and thley that woirship
Hlim must wor'ship Him ini spirit andi
in truth.' It was (ine of tile first mecan
lngs of Christ's sacrifice, to abolishi the
temple. W\hen lie bowed His head ini
deamth on1 (:uiV:ary and said1 "It is fm-.
ished," "the veil of the temple w'as re'nt
in twainl from the tot) to the bottom.'
and the whole significance of the tern
ple service passed away. The temple
itself did not long surv'ive the death of
Christ. and the eeelesiastical capital
was soonl destroy--d. Hienceforth the
Church of God iln the world was on a
different basis. Hlenceforth God be
came accessible without offering or
priest. wvithout temrple or altar, and ir

in a measure that rest which Christ
came to give-rest from ceremonial
burdens. We are living ill tihe dispen
sation'of the spirit. and the church is
w-herev'er the spirit moves men to wor-!
ship. Wherever the Holy Spirit has
gone and planted the gospel of .Christ
in the hearts of men, turning their
thoughts and affections to God. there is
the eniurch. It matters not whether it

But there is good reason to believe
that our fathers knew what they were
talkinig aibout. If they had said. "gov
erinent derives its potency from the
conseit of the governed" they would
have heen utteri-lg the exact truth.
Statutes are iioperative until the sub
iects coiscnt. Perfect society implies
perfect alcquiesCeCee in the will of the
superior or law making power. The
ICre society progresses toward unity,
the simpler and niore eq-able will gov

cause the will of the governor and the
governed are in perfect correspond

pleases and at the sam time does as
Ill some such way the perfect com
munity is characterized by perfect
unity without uniformiy. Each per
forms his own duty in his own way,
lit is all the -while in perfect har
iony with his neighbor. Again. in the
perfeeted society there is no distine
tion between the religious and the sec
u Hr. Here we have our times and
piaces of religion. We gather here in
this house of prayer. believing that
God is present here as He is not in
other places, as. indeed. He has prom
ised to be. It is God's concession to
our limitations and indrmfities. Bul
it is far from the ideal. We are apt
to identify religion with the means of
religion. rather than ::eligion itself.
We get grace by our religious exercises
to keep GoWs commandments in all
our w: .ks of life, and that is religion.
The mieibers of the.church triumph
ailt ire equally religious every day of
the week and every hour of the day,
anid hence. church-going in our sense
of the word. is forever abolished. In
that society. oneC does not need to say
to his brother. "'Know' th'e Lord," for
all shall know Him from the least to
the greatest. There is no more preach.
inlg. "no tedie therein."
Once more; it is obvious that the
more faithful and devoted we are to
the mans of religion here the sooner
we shall be fitted to do without them.
Your chlild, learning to play the piano,
finds it hard labor to spell out note by
note, conforming to the rules and rudi
mentts of practice. By and by she will
go beyond the rules. She will acquire
the ;enius of the skilled performer.
Ad the more diligently we observe
our religious duties .here the sooner
we shall get beyond them. The niore
faithftul we are now to the timnes and
places of religious worship the sooner
shall we be1 ready for that society
where all life is religious.
Zachariah had that vision ages be
fore John had it. when he saw "Holi
ness5 to the Lord" inscribed on the
bells of the horses and the pots in
tie Lord's house, as sacred as the
bowl:s of the altar: yea, and every pot
in .Jerusalm as holy as the vessels of
tie anctulary. That was at least a
glimpse of the templeless city of God.
And now shgil we not keep before
us that -ideal? Let us riot be discour

that far-off perfection and present
reality. The poet well expresses our

Among the many remarkable acts
of the Mair-e Legislature, recently ad
journed. was the passage of a law es
tablirhing a lien on gravestones, by
which the marble worker may, within
two years from the erection of the
stone, take possession of the memo
ral in sat isfaction of any sum that
may at that time remain unpaid. When
the law was 1:nder consideration in
the legislature it attracted very little
attetion, but nowe that it has been
passed there has arisen a great storm
of protest. The law is denounced as
'ghulish," anc the legislature and
