oan'se Delivered Sunday by Rdv. J,. A Crooker. , A,. R. alf, Let There .llaeselty inl Atl Thllng-De, maid for It in Religlloee Teaching. SIn a time of intellectual weakness and spiritual deadness in England, more than a half century ago, a great though peculiar .qnias, Thomas Carlyle, took for his text this sentence; "Sincerity is better than graoe." His volce, though somewhat harsh Ann tinlrtiaulateat times, was for a season like a tumpet call to judgment. Com placent conformity found itself prieked to the heart; the white light of a tremendous earnestneea was turned upon easy-going in difference; conventional pretense was made to look infinitely mean by the luminousn flashes of a fiery incentive. In the message of Thomas Carlyle there was a breath of life from the moun tains of the Lord; it awoke thl Llsepers; it made hypocrites tremble; it freshened the dull and quickened the in a+lst, and it made a new.olimate for the of religion. This mem age was a plea ineerity-a plea that man be tiue to hintilf; that he put away all pretense and make his apparent. life his real life and his real life his apparent life; that he be loyal to his inmost convietion, and that he live from the heart out with all frankness and openness. Thomas Carlyle in his bestdatys inspired men to heroic action, and to he. role action as the expression of their truest and freshest conviction-no make-believe in church or Itate or school; no hollow echoes and mechanical reoitatioi, but the real thought put into action with simplicity and earnestness. And, of a truth, sincerity is better than grase; honesty of speech is better than elegant phrases which come only from the lips but not from the heart; the enthusiasm which breaks through all formalities and serves where humanity suffers and where truth is at stake is better then the'piety which spends itself on the mere decorations of life; a noble conviction put into deeds does a hundred fold more to bring in the kinadom of heaven than any graciousness of manner which does uiot spring from the 'heart. It needs little illustration and no argument to show that sincerity lies at the bottom of everything excellent ?n the individual and everything noble in ol'iliza tion. One of the elements of human life, prized alike by ancient and modern peoples, is friendship,-the merging of two lives in a common affection and a single aspira tion; this has been one of the purest foun tains of joy and one of the most potent agents of civilization. Now, there can be no friendship without sincerity; there must be perfect confidence in each other's single nsee of mind. If a suspicion arises that something has been held back, that there was a shade of duplicity in word or act, or that one's real purpose is kept covered by artifice, then this divine flower is at once destroyed. But sinserity is fundamental to other ex celleneies beside friendship. The historic infuence of great men is inseparable from the belief in their sincerity. Itis, after all, not so much a man's genius or his deed, but the moral quality "of his personality, which gives him power for good over the lives of people and enables him to change the currents of history. We every day see geniuses destroy infinitepossibilities because they possess no manhood. The man who makes himself a beneficent historic force is one who represents in himself an absolute fidelity to some imperial principle or im portant human interest-a Luther who de fends the soul against priestoraft, a Wash ington who never deviates from an exalted patriotism, a Lincoln who toils with single ness of purpose for his country. These names are prolific seeds of civility; and they are immortal. But how quickly they would have gone into the dust before the proof that they were merely playming a part! And how many then of great capacity in many other directions have dropped into obscurity or disgrace, because a suspicion of their sineerity seemed well founded? If sincerity is so important in the world at large, it is evident that it is ten fold more important in religion. As it is true generally that we will be condemned, not because our light is small, but because we -do not walk in the light which we do possess, all the more true is it in spiritual affairs that we will be judged, not because our faith is weak, but because we have lived contrary to what truth we have seen. In sincerity in religion is hiding the light which God has put in the soul. And to this probably Jesus referred, when he said: "No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, but setteth it on a candlestick that they which enter in may see the light." Now, when God lights up a human soul with the revelation of a great truth or a fresh aspiration, he wants that soul to make a public use of its light; to be a candle of the Lord, making bright the dark places. Letting one's light shine out is sincerity; but covering it over with pretense and tradition is that insihcerity which is the anpardonable sin. From this we see that dangers do not come so mouch from the sincere believer of any faith, however nar row and erade, as from thoes who, like the Rotan augars, smile as they meet but carry on the farce of pre tending to believe what theydo not believe. Any man who is holding his lighted candle out into the dark to make some little spot more safe and cheerful, even by the use of . only a few feeble rays, isa doing God's service. It may be a very small light, but his duty is well dont when he makes the best possible use of it. But the man who hides the truth he knows, not datine to bl.ek away from acustom or brave the frown of disapproval is as guilty as one who should put out a beacon light kindled to warn men from the deadly breakers, The truth comes to my hand that I may wave it as a torah to help those asail on the sea of life. On the other hand, a man who pretends to believe what in his soul he has rejected, who outwardly and publicly conforms but invariably and pri vately rejects and scorns, he is likeone who kindles a false beacon which lures the in nocent into fatal dangers. The man who takes upon his lils as saving faith a creed that he in his heart repudiates, who lends his sanction to n dogma which his reason condemns, this man is like the treacherous guide who points ount as the way of life what he knows is the way of death. Big certty in religion is making the lantern of the hlight house blazeo with the truth of to day, for far out on the deep tlhere is some poormariner- who needs just that light to save him. 'IThe light which, OnCalvitn or Lu ther had will oct reach far enouelb; it must - be the truth that has come to you; and it hbI come to you to be rut to ue. nriot hidden. When science shall give the lighthouse keeper a new appliunoo which will make his light E;en far oiff thlougph the fog, will not all who refuse to use it be responsible in a meansure fdr the death of those who go down to wat~ery giaves in the sea? Is our iuilt the less, it standing upon some great headland, with a modern revelation in our hearts which has given as liberty sand alad ness, we make-believe and pioclalm the old dogma that gives no help to those in fogs of doubt, which ,ur own best thought would have penetrated with guidance and deliver The realm of relignion I s a egion where the most delicate p:roducts and saored in terests of human nature are cultivited. It is only by sepreme fidelity anti the utmost care that . the temper of life called spirituality can be developed. It cannot co-exist with gios conduce or sordid ambition,. It cannot flourish where there is untruth and sensaulity. That finel reverencs which lends to humnan character such beauty and streagth cannot grow in a human heart devpted to petty aims end n.

Ift man stands up in chutch and recotes with apparent ap proval a creed Which he does not believe, we need not expect him to have any very keen sense of obligation respecting the promise which he aker s you on the street. It is inevitable that insincerity in religion will spread as a deadly disease through one's whole moral life. If a person errely aots a part at the altar of his God when engaged in the most solemn okices, surely we may be certain that he will min much pretense in his con duct among mortals, now, if these prineiples are true, it is self-evident that there are very many things among the practioe of religion to day whloch are deserving of onur severest condemnation. An illustration will make plain what I mean: A lady in Boston re cently went to one of the most distin g.Itshed lergymen in that city-a Trini tarian Congregationalist-and made known her religious position. She did not believe certain dogmas, long considered easen tial in the creed of his church and still retained in it, so far as she know. i he frankly stated her de oided oppositfon to them, but she had found help in his preaching, and she expressed a desire to join the church, provided she could do so without pretending to believe those dlogmas. In a hearty manner the minister assured her that those dogmas were a dead letter-kept in the chareh only as a piee of ancient history-that he him self did not believe them; that she need not pretend to believe them, while he appointed a day when he would be clad to welcome her to the membership of his church. Buat when the day pame, to her great astonish ment, she, with others, was asked to stand while that very creed was publicly read, with the inderstanding that she and the others beleved it all! Well might she be indignant, and charge this min ister with most reprehensible Insincerity! Here was a man, professing to be a servant of God, engaged in preaohin the nospel, who publicly read as a description of sav ing faith a creed, fundamental parts of which he had in private confessed that he did not beheve; and not only was he will ing to act a lie, he was willing that this woman come into the church as a partici pant in his lie, and begin her public re ligious life by the most poisonous act of practical atheism! Had he never heard that the Lord must be served with sincer ity and that the gospel is truthl These are the things which make as feel that jude meat must begin at the house of God; and that the time is not far distant. I do not wish to speak harshly of the pul pit; I would not imply that ministers as a rule are insincere; but I see otherwise noble men doing astonishing things in religion; preaching one doctrine in the pulpit while having another doctrine taught in the Sunday school; living in their studies on Darwin, Martinean and Emerson but con tradicting them in their public teaching; using old phreases in a new sense to tickle the ear at once of conservative and radical; evaporating the creed into a vague fog that blinds and paralyzes, satisfactory because so dim. This is tampering with veracity, and whoever tampers with veraoity destroys the vital force of civilization. Attempt is made to Justify what I have been condemning by holdingr that it is necessary to lead people slowly, for they are not ready for advanced ideas. But when will the people be ready if the clergy deal in half-truths and allow tradition to hold the Sunday school in bondage? The people are ready for the best truth the min ister can give, regardless of the creed. There is no such thing as teaching new ideas by degrees, You do not teach a boy that two and two are flye in order to pre pare him for learning that two and two are four. Teaching that every word in the Bible is inspired does not prepare people for the results of modern scholarship; tqaching that heaven is reached by belief in Jesus' righteousness doss not prepare people for the sublime conviction that heaven is the outcome of our own growth in righteousness. God gives truth, not to be deal out out in fragments, but to be passed on to others in all its majestic entirety. Do we Want a truer science, a nobler home, a more eficient school, a juster mar ket, a purer state, a diviner church? Then we must .make sure of the essential prepa ration; we must be sincere in religion. We mset use our influence to publish the high esat truth found and spread the use of reason in religi6n; we must see to it that our children are carefully taught what we have found to be the noblest and most nse ful doctrines, for it is as wicked to load a young heart with superstition as to expose a child to evil companions; and we must use our whole influence in a rational and manly fashion for the things of the spirit that have been our joy and our emencipa tion. And to the deralogue we must add this commanpdment: No salvation without sincerity. a uckrlen's Arniea Salve.
