Friday Morning, Sefitemh
OF r SOUL SAVEB?
London, September 13 Modern
ministers are trained as mere "sales
men" instead of Christian apostles
and that is one reason why the people
generally have a luke-warm attitude
toward religion, dedlared the Rev.
Dr. J. S. Ladd Thomas of Chicago,
in an address here today before the
Ecumenical Methodist Conference.
The speaker said he saw "a real per
il" 'in the effort of denominational
leaders to force the ministry into a
narrow and mechanical scheme whose
direct aim is to produce the largest
"Poorly attended churches all over
the land bear witness to. the people's
indifferen.ce toward institutional re
ligion," said Dr. Thomas. "Full
churches are the exceDtion rather
than the rule. It is the empty
church which stares us in the face
and, 'more eloquently than words'
speaks of the attitude of that large
group of people who ' have rejected
institutional religion as something
unnecessary in their lives.
"They are pleaure mad; they have
s mania for materialistic indulgence
while their belief in the modern
church as the representative of God
and the Ambassador of Christ does
not express itself. The real probl
em," the speaker indicated, "is how
to vitalize the church so that she
may authoritatively and convincing
ly persuade men of their divine in
heritance and the mission of sacrifi
Asserting that "the average artisan
lacks confidence in the church as the
champion of the 'square deal,' " he
"This indifference has arisen from
a misconception of God a wrong
teaching of God a wrong teaching
of the church and a wrong teaching
of the Christian life. In many of
the critical hours of history the
church has failed to impress the
world with an authoritative mes
sage which would bring light into
the dark hours on the subject of war,
the relations of capital and labor and
other vital questions which have been

"Prophets and priests," Dr. Thom
as said, must "challenge the people
with a gospel that will restore confi
dence in the church, trust in Christ
and service to the world. The church
must not forget her social message
but she must also remember that
Christianity is a religion of the individual."

London, Sept. 15 Moral standards
of the present day, changing from
the simple code of our forefathers,
are "excrescences growing out of the
war." declared the Rev. Dr. Elbert
Rbbb Zaring, editor of the North
western Christian Advocate, Chica
go, before the fifth Ecumenical Meth
odist Conference here today. "It is
a passing wave from which," he said
"we are slowly but surely emerging."
Dr. Zaring, in his address, refer
red to the pleasantry which passed
between a Chicago anil a New York
daily paper many years ago when
Chicago was developing the sky
scraping habit. t-nicago twuteu
New York on the fact and the Her
ald of that city replied there was no
city on the Western Hemisphere that
needed its sky scraped worse than
Chicago." Since then scores of ci
ties have gone into the sky-scraping
business," continued the speaker. "In
the spiritual meaning of thatl term
we must all scrape the sky to get a
correct idea of moral standards.
"The true moral standard is un
changeable. It lies like a 'great
snow-capped mountain range across
the horizon. It cannot change. This
moral mountain range which has set
the standard for all time sustains
the same relation to the moral world
that the Himalayas do to the physical
"Attempts have been m'ade to sub
stitute, but to no avail. Every once
in awhile you hear of a new set of
Commandments. Men of different
professions have issued Ten Conn
mandments. I have read of Ten
Commandments for husbands, for
wives, for students and even school
children. Revisers have even gone
into the field of the New Testament
and proposed Beatitudes different
from those laid down by our Lord.
All these attempts are futile and in
significant compared to the moun
tain range formed by the first Ten
Commandments let down out of
Heav,en through the medium of Mo
ses. They cannot be improved upon.

m., .A...mn f moral stand'
ards is changing. We are today in
the trough of a wave. The war up
set everything, toppled our moral as
well as our intellectual and physical
standards. We have not recommenc
ed to keep house. Thus there are
certain retrogressions that are great
ly deplored and which some fancy
are a permanent lowering of the
moral standards. These are but ex
crescences growing out of the war.
Such a horrible program as was pro- j nmi a
jected upon the world could not but
leave in itsfrail a sordid conception
of morals. Thus, in the matter of
family ties, of physical habits, of our
amusements, we find people indulg
ing as they have not done for many
"This is but a passing wave. Even
now we are emerging therefrom.
Our conception of the moral stan
dard is liftintr. One of the most
hopeful phases of this development
of a moral ideal is the application
of the principal of Christianity to
the great world of industry about
us. There -is no question but that
we have a larger outlook in this field
than ever before.
"But the world has become com
plicated. There is no simplicity.
Everything is interwoven, enmeshed.
'No man liveth to himself and no
man dieth to himself in any sense
whatever. Once upon a time we did
not care how a man made his money
just so he distributed it properly.
Now we are not so anxious about
the distribution of his money as how
he made it. I have great hopes for
the future. The moral standard is
lifting gradually. The line marked
upon the side of the great and eter
nal standard set by Christ Himself
is gradually mounting. Some day
but not now we may reach the tip
of the standard."
