LECTURES ONDUR LORD’S MIRACLES!
By the Rev. John Cumming, D. D. PhUa
delphia—Lindsay & Blakiston.
This is the third volume of the series of Dr.
Cumming1 s works which Messrs. Lindsay &
Blakiston have undertaken to re-produce in
thii opyytijy1 The reputation of Dr. Cumm
ing aa one of the greatest, if not the greatest,
of the pulpit orators in London, has spread
“through all the churches,” and all his print
ed (iiSeourru are read with as much eager
ness as they are heard by the people who sit
under bis preaching. He publishes them in
the hope that “what was useful to a congre
gation may be useful to the Church at large.”
These lectures on Christ’s miracles are char
acteristically bofll, eloquent, and energetic,
and are calculated to make a serious impres
sion. In the main, they will doubtless be ac
ceptable to Teligious minds of every religi
ous denomination, but we notice here and
there passages to which many readers in this
country will take strong exception: as, for
example, the following, which is an extract
from the lecture on “Water made Wine” in
Cana of Galilee:—
“It Ha* been objected bvone of the German
infidels, that our Lord did not show a deep
sense of the danger of wine when he created
at tKw feast so excessive a quantity—some
hundred gallons—by an act of omnipotent
power. Would not this objection apply to
every vintage? If God gives a plenteous vin
tage you would not say. This is a temptation
to men to drink to excess. There was no
more temptation to drinking to excess from
his filling many large water jars, than in his
being pleased to give the sunbeams ami rain
drops that make an abundant vintage. 1 he
secret of temperance is not in the cellar, but
in the heart of the landlord of the wine cellar.
A Christian man will not become intoxicated
if he drinks from a cask; a drunkard will l»e
eooe intoxicated if he driuks from a bottle.
It is not in the quantity before you that the
element of temperance is, but in ♦he grace of
God that has been planted in your hearts.
Now it does seem to me, without the least ex
pr Osh ion of disrespect toward those who differ
from me, that if God had designed that men
should be uuiversally what is call teetotal—
that is, should not taiste wiue, or auy thing
that has the least alcoholic element in it—
He would have prohibited the growth of the
vine, and rendered fermentation absolutely
impossible; because if there were no fermen
tation there could be no alcoholic elenieut
generated. But He has not done so; lie does
give the vintage, and He does give the fruit
of the vine; lie has created fermentation
just as truly as He has created vegetation;
therefore it does seem to me that temperance
ie to arise, not from the alienee ot wine, but
from the presence of Christian principles:
and that we are to be sober because it is a
Chrietan duty, and not by insulation from all
the elements for being the reverse. It does
appear to me that character is perfected, not
by being placed beyond the reach ot tempta
tion, but by being placed within the reach
of tt. And there gloriously triumphing by the
gr** of God over all its suggestions and its
temptations. . .
It is remarkable, (and I submit it to tho.se
who differ from me) that our Lord ministered
not to supply, as you preeeive, a necessity,
but to add an enjoyment. I admit teetotalism
him done much good, and l recognize the
perfect liberty of every man to adopt it woo
ts satisfied that it will do good. 1 would not
•aj one word against the teetotal society, be
cause they have done good, and I pray that
they may do more: hut while they claim the
lihArtv of holdiucr their sentiments, 1 must not
shrink from the duty of expounding what is
plainly God's word. * * *
if I could, 1 would make every man sober:
but iny prescription, if you will allow it, is
not a mechanical chauge, but a moral revo
lution in the unregenerated and unsanctified
heart. “But there is danger," you say, in
wine. So there is, and there is danger in
other things; there is danger in tampering
with the word of God: there is danger in
reading the bible in the light ot teetotal ism,
instead of reading teetotalism in the light of
the Bible; for we may depend upon it. wlien
6Y<W % man begins to adopt another mode of
life than that which the Saviour gave, he
soon begins to adopt another rule ot faith
than that which the Bible affords,
ll ii not mv prejudices that influence uic. 1
feel I am fiere the interpreter of that word,
the glory, the perfection the beauty ot which
shine forth more and more. 1 must bring
all my likes and dislikes, alt my preferences
Rttd 'prejudices, to God's law w«d to God s
testimony; 1 dare not say what is cot lie re.
A few have left this congregation because i
will not be a teetotaler. 1 have no liking to
wiD* lean do without it as freely as any of
you; but what my Lord consecrated by tast
ing, I will not pronounce unholy: what lie
has mit a precedent of using, l too feel that
I may use in moderation: and thus I teach,
whether you like it or dislike it. 1 ani
pitted in this pulpit, not to preach to your
prejudices, or to echo vour opinions, but to
nroeiaim, as responsible at the judgment bar
JfGod, what is true, and that, by God s
grace, I am determined to pcrseiere in doing.
I, therefore, gather from this passage that
wise is lawful, that it is not unholy; that the
iemnurate use of it ii legitimate; that its
empSofment as a medicine is right. 1 have
tried the teetotal system, and literally and
truly ft did not suit me; 1 have tried the other
system - I nee but do not abuse it—and i find
taut stronger and can do more work, eujoy
better health, and put forth greater energy.
I must, therefore, put my experince against
an opposite experience. 1 never drank to
excess in my life, aud 1 hope uoue ot you do.
jfuthing can be more degrading to a unman
IW" drunkenness; nothing can b*
moMs disgraceful to a Christian wan than cx
.cess. TfiTgreat law, the beautiful law, is
khptame is short, it remains for them that mar
ry to be as though they married not, for them
(that sell as though they sold not, and them
that buy ms though they boughtnot; thus us
ing the world and not abusing it, for the
feriiiftTi of this world speedily passeth away.
