Startling Sermon by tbe Bishop or
London.
The following sermon is clipped
from an exchange. We cannot affirm
that it was preached, but hesitate
not to say it ought to have been
preached not only in Westminster
Abbey but everywhere, and often :
Text?"Go to uow, ye rich men,
weep and howl for your miseries that
shall come upon you. Behold the hire
of the laborers who have reaped
down vour fields, which is of you kept
back by fraud, crieth; and the cries
of them which have reaped are entered
into the ears of the Lord of Sabbath.
Ye have lived in pleasure on
the earth and been wanton : ye have
nourished your hearts as in a day of
slaughter. Ye have condemned and
killed the just, and he doth not resist
you."?James 5:1,4,5,6.
Fellow Citizens?The text which
I have just read you, and from which
I shall preach the last sermon as bishop
that I shall ever deliver from this
pulpit, is one which is probably as unfamiliar
to you comfortable well-to-do
people as it is familiaT to all those who
since it was originally penned have
tolled and suffered for humanity.
Although it is read sometimes in the
ordinary course of our church service,
yet, judging by your conduct, your
eaTs have been deaf to its terrible denunciations.
From the days when 1
was an humble curate until now, J
had a large and varied experience of
cathedrals, churches, preachers and
sefmfOns, I have never yet heard a
discourse based on these words, and I
cannot learn from any of my brother
bishops or priests that they have used
them, or heard them so used.
I can see by your uneasy demeanor
that you are asking yourselves why,
on this Christmast day, when in accordance
with custom, I should be
preaching smooth things to you, I
should be mad enough to offend your
delicate susceptibilities by quoting
the saying of one of the common people?words
written eighteen centuries
aco?;which might have done very
well then, but which cannot possibly
be applied to you and your class today
; you who come here, clad in purple
and fine linen, who, some of you,
live in king's houses, who fare delicately
every day, and who consider
that you have fulfilled every moral
obligation when you have dropped a
coin in the collection box, before you
step into your carriages to be driven
to your luxurous home. It is because
I believe that not only James, but
Jesus Christ Himself, if He could
stand in my place to-day would hurl
these words at you with a force and a
passion of which we, in the nineteenth
century, have but litte conception.
Not as a bishop, but as a man,
I repeat them to you, hardly hoping
that they may touch your hearts, but
more, as a justification for my new
and strange position.
For years I have been one of you.
My home has been not where Christ's
home was, with the masses, but with
classes. I haye an abundance of this
world's goods. I have been a dignitary
of a church which is the church
of the rich, and not the church of the
poor. Without a protest I have mix
ea in society wuu mei^ uuu wuujeu
whom Christ would have denounced
as bitterly as He denounced the
scribes and Pharisees. In the house
of lords I have sat silently side by side
with whoremongers and and adulterers,
and silently have I welcomed as
my personal friends highborn women
?some of whom no decent workingman
would allow his wife or daughter
to associate.
I have seen among you, spreading
like a canker, the lust of the flesh and
the pride of life, and instead of reproving
you, as Christ would have done,
I have taken refuge in generalities,
and have not dared to denounce your
individual sins. All this time there
has been going on around me, in this
huge city and throughout the land,
the surging, toiling life of humanity?
the sorrow, the suffering, the poverty,
the disease, the sin and the shame
which I realized but dimly, as something
altogether apart from my own
elistence, but for which, I at last see
clearly, you and I have been up to the
present time, mostly to blame. We
and our class have kept back by fraud
the hire of the laborers who have reaped
our fields, we have lived in pleasure
on the earth and been wanton, we
have nourished our own hearts
while we have starved the bodies of
> those to whom we owe the very bread
we eat and the clothes we wear, and
- now we are condemning and killing
' at our own very gates the people
whose inarticulate cry is entering into
the ears of the Lord of Sabbath, whose
faithful QDrron^Q txrn rt r atari rl fn V>o
U4AVXA4UX OVA TUUbO ?f V pVWUVt IV VV*
My fellow-citizens, I know not how
it may be with you, but for me this
earless, selfish life is ended. Little
by little I have awakened to the fact
that all my days I have entirely neglected
my real duty to my fellow men,
and at last I have come to know that
my proper place is not here as a wellpaid
bishop of a church which, in its
present conditions, is utterly opposed
to everything which Christ taught,
but among the poor, to whom He declared
that the gospel should be prached;
among the laborers whose hire we
have kept back by fraud.
Too long have I neglectedthe miserable
social facts of our so-called Christian
civilization. Too long have I
spoken to you smooth things and cried
peace when there was no peace. I
have known by repute that there was
misery among our people, starvation
in our midst, and prostitution on our
streets. But hitherto I have taken
these as something for which you and
I were not responsible, but which,
were really due to the inherent wickedness
of nature.
But now I have learned that our
- - '-.-i'.VSL'--'*
* /vv-v. s'.l " x'' vi.- - v
pleasures and our wantonness liuve
been built upon this hideous foundation,
and having learned this?as you
may also learn if you will?I have resolved
that from this Christmas day
my new life shall begin. To-day I lay
down my robes, T give up my bishopric,
my palace and my income; 1
give up my seat in the house of lords;
I give up my pleasures of society and
of the world, and at last I take my
place as a man among men.
It is, I know, a bold step that I have
taken, but I have fully counted the
cost. Resolved no longer to live on
the labor of others, I shall probably
have to joiu the great army of the un
I employed. To-morrow l snan attempt
' to preach my first sermon to tliem in
Trafalgar square, from the same text
that I have used here to-day, and it
Is likely that I shall pass to-morrow
night in a police cell. But there I
shall be no worse off than Jesus Christ
would be if He attempted to enter this
abbey (Westminster) now, for he
would be arrested and locked up as a
vagabond without visible meanj of
subsistence. To you and your class
He would simply be a laborer whose
subsistence you have kept by fraud.
To the abolition of that fraud, and of
misery and degradation which result
from it, I shall henceforth devote my
life. It will be no easy task, not near
soeasy as being Bishop of London,
but the reward of good conscience and
of nobler work well done is better far
than a palace and ten thousand pounds
($48,000) a year.
In this place I shall probably never
speak again. But when freedom shall
have opened out her arms and gathered
all men into her wide embrace,
when justice and truth shall have taken
the place of oppression and fraud,
some man of the people shall stand
in this temple of the dead and inspired
by the best traditions of the
ook!potinne r\f flio r>r<5?
[J?Wly liiC UUU1V UO]^llUVlUll>J V4 V"W |/a w
ent, and the ideal hopes of the future,
shall send ringing through these lofty
aisles that living Christmas message,
which till then can never have its full
significance?"Peace on earth and good
will to men."
