Let us now go On to soe what an
awkward dilemma the Ohnrch's ex

to sssnme with referenci to 'biatory

As illuatiatio: s o! this tat us tike

forth -to revilut!ou 1 tt e science of
ttie worid. G ilileo fred worse, anil
was forced loabjciro the Iruth as to the
works of God, iu order to maiutnin an
erroneous interpretat'on of his word.

of all enni erui'd. And 8s t ) tl:e words
of tho Bii5le, 110 hi::g hs bjen done 10
de.Htroy fa.ta in their truth and divine
authority. Ae.rouomera and geol
ogijts can, and dn, receive them as
revelations fro.u God. And the only
change of opinion among iulelligect
Uhrutisns is to eeo morj and more
cleaily the f.iot that tne Bible is Bilent,
that it reveals nothing whatever as to
the ssicritific qietions, or theories,
which are embodied in a tronomy or
in geilrgy. God in giving ns the
book did not incorporaie any theory
eb to the troth or f jisitv of the Greek
astronomy of Piolemy, nor the mod
ern astronomy of Kopernik and Gali
leo. It W83 a mistake ever to have
thought no. The language of the
Bible is popular, or is "phenomenal,"
to uss a technical word, not referring
to physical causes, which would be
Now. this is the fundamental idea
in Dr. Woodrow's Bttsmpt to harmin
iz) the Bible with esience. Ms holds
that Soripture, which is with bim as
wi'H all Presbyterians, the highest eu
thority on everything about which it
gives an opinion, is silent aa to the
details which e iter into the new the
- ory of evolation. And herein many
o! us, who have no fixed decision aa
to the scientific truth or error of evo
lution, tgree with him. In so do ng
we are moving in the c-xtct direction
that hiBtory iodic-tes. For it was ex
actly in th s way that a solution was
found for the older controversies, one
and all. And this feature, common
to Dr. Wood row and to his illustrious
brethren, the tboligians and the
Christian scientist?, will remain un
changed whatever else of his or theirs
fihall be amended.
Lastly, let me conclula with a
word as to the s id dilemma in which
the church will find herself, thongh
she is prai-ed by the Appeal for it,
about her educated young people.
Tne church will find tbat hundreds
and thousands of her choicest youth
of either sex are being educated to
the opinion tbat evolution is a truth
a law of na'ure. The result is in
evitable. Tefchers may be forbidden
to Biy anything in tchools under
church control. Bit the text books
speak. All the be t seem now to be
on that side. The periodical of tha
day teem with the new ideas. Young
people are not preposeeLsed with old
interpretations. Tney move on with

This is the most distressing view of
the ca-e. I know it has preened
heavily on Dr. Woodrow's mind. Fcr
this he has continued to endure oppo
lition and criticism. He felt ts a wit
ness called to testify for pea?e between
fdith and science, between the church
and tha precions souls committed to
her care. Had the churck, wa ned
by the p 1st, taken this view of the
mutt r tntre would have bxn an end
rftroub e. The charch would havs
niioe no cbarga whftever in her
crsed. 8i;ed,d uct iccirporatJ tho
