SERMON. ST IttVING A. SEAHLT.S. I For the prophecy came net in old time by the j will of man. but holy men of God nnake as they I were moved by the Holy Spirit. 2 I'ct., 1, 21, Iu what sense is the Dible inspired ? May I not this Book have been eo changed in the lapso of time as to make an essential difference in somo important faclH and doctrinos ? Con fining our remarks more especially to tho New Teetement these are the questions before u this evening. l'iret, then, we submit ti.3 proposition that, the New Testament h now I.j the world, and is accepted as of divine authority by Christian people of a!l lands. 2. We Dext affirm that in tho year 325 a. p., the New Testameut existed and was thus accepted by the Christian world of that age. At thia time there was the celebrated Council of Nice. Christianity badbecomj the established religion of the Koman 'Empire. Constantino, the Emperor, bad Limself become a convert to the new religion. Two great par ties arose in tuo church over the question " What think ye of Christ ? " One said He was an angel, the other that He was the very God. Athanabias was the acknowledged bac'.sr of oao party, and Arius cf the other. At this council thrae hundred and eighteen of the most learned men of both parties met to settle this controversy. Doth sid'js apptaled to the New Testament as of authority. They regarded its decision cs final. 3. We next afiirm that tlo New Testament was regarded as cf divine authority by the Christian world as early as 225 a. d. Celsus, a ' skeptic who lived about this time, wrote a work ! entitled " The Word of Truth." In this attack j on the New Testament he does not intimate j that it was a forgery. Nor does bo deny the miracics, - r, miracics, bat attributes them to magic. The be deems it worthwhile ta thus at- books of the New Testameiit showa j that they were reconizad aa authority by the b.ivs : " 'i hat our reliou teaches uo to ECt'u after wisdom ehall be shown both out of the ancient Jewish scriptures, which we abo wee, auc cnl or ttJ0;i3 v.ntisu .inc .icsus, wiucu ara uolieved int!;e churches tobn divine." Again : T!ie foar gnnpels, winch alone are received without controversv hv the Church of Cod I under Heaven." Ironic is says: "Nor cau there be more or fever (iorjpcls than these. For, as there are four regious of tho world ia which we I've, and four cardinal point-, and the church is Epread over all the earth and the gospel is tho pillar and support of tho church aud the breath of life, in like manner is it fit that it should have four pillars, breathing on all sides incorruption and refreshing mankind. Again : 41 Wo have not received the knowledge of the way of our salvation by any others than tho?o through whom the gospel hascoice down to us." Tertullian says: 44 Among the apostles, John and Matthew form the faith within us. Amotg the companions of the apostles, Luke and Mark renovate it." Clement writes : 44 In tho first p'.aoe we have not that saying in the four gospels which have been handed down to us." Justin Mar tyr add9 : 44 The memories of the apostles, or the writings of the prophets, are read accord ing as the time allows, and when the reading is ended the president makes a discourse." These quotations are proof of five propo sitions : (a) The New Testament, in soma form, existed as early as the year 225 a. d. (b) There were four gospels then, as now. (c) . Uirou,uoat tao length and breadth of the hni. There writings were read in the public assem- ; 8nJ grfcat good ljag come of it Xo opca a ht; bhesof the church, (d) They were ar pealed ni,ler fie!J cf intellectual recreation and m1 to as of divine authority, (e) They existed j Btraction i8 the object of this article. prior to tins date and were Landed down t j : this a'.e. ' i. We Dext athrm that thet?e writings were i in tho world and appealed to as of divine an- ! thonty as early as the jear 110 a. d. We have in proof of this the writings of Folcarp. He wai a disciple of tho apostle .lohn. Ha says : 44 1 trust that jo are all well exercised in the Holy Scriptures, as ia these Scriptures it is said, 4 De ye angry and sin not.' " Hero, then, we proceed in our evidence, step by step, from the present age down to the days of the apostles. We next inquire what reason have we for knowing that these writings have not been eo changed by interpolations as to essentially change some important fact or doctrine ? 1. They were public documents. They were read in the public assemblies of the church. They were committed to memory. An impor tant change would be readily detected. It would bo like one to-day attempting to change any clause in the Declaration of Independence. The American people are acquainted with that document and any interpolation would be at once discovered. 2. They were sacred. Justin Martyr says : 44 To mutilate tho Scriptures would be a more fearful crimo than the worship of the golden calf, cr than the sacrifice of children to the demons, than 6laying tho prophets them selves." 3. There is an essential agreement of the j bao!s that we have now with the oldest manu : scripts. Ono of these manupcripta coes back 'to tho eectnl centuy. Over two tb insand i havo uoen examine J. Dei ween the Now Tcrta ! mcnt that'wo have low and the an 'icr.tvtr- ' eions thtro is no direenieut m matters cs- ecn'ial. 1. The quotations th;t wc find in ancient writers i-hoar that they wero quoting irom the same hook that we Lave to-day. If the New Testament were to bo lot, all" but twenty-six VPfHPa tit if rr.ni I a ll,..1 i- ... i 0f the second, third, and fourth centuries, Even creatcr -vkWa r,n i. i i. t ahow that the Old Testament could not bave been essentially changed. To tbe ancient Jews the Old Testament was of the greatest impor tance. It marked out their national boundary line. It contained, practically, the deeds of Preached In Disciple Church, Paw Paw. Sunday evening, Oct. 21et, 1877, and revised by Mr. Searles expressly for tbe Tbci Nobth their farms. Every farmer there had a self- history bere.

We have far greater evidence that the Dible We kn0T of rUU wuj tre aa m3,h jt.rt,., hascomo down to us without essential change jn works f po)ltic,i ecoaom,, - tf .Mr- by Interpolation than wo have that any other ancient document has survived that ordeal. But in what sense are we to oderitand that the Dible is inspired? Inspiration mea'is, l;t" erally, Ood breathed." In what seaae, thtn, istheDiblo 'God breathed"? Did Ood sug gest the vords and the men writ a them down as dietated ? We think not. In describing tLe titlo over the cross the former evangelists ill differ verbally in their f-tatemcnt. Matthew: 44 This is Jeaus, the King cf the Jews." Mark : i "The King of the Jews." Luke: " Tnis is lie ; TU -N'c,rember nmbsr of S?rlner forth King of tho Jews." John: 'Mesas of Naza. "t of its fifteenth volasne. Edward K.;tim reth, tho King of tho Jews." The thought is I 0n,8 "7 vel Roxv is LcS"u, with an i!!us tho same here, but the words differ. Hence, i ratl0a alter Khirlaw. TLetscene is kid in inspiration is not verbal dictation. J?' JLcr?

We spoke specially of reading clubs. 44 Sbakepero clubs." etc. The project wan entered unon in a creat many towns In a country town, which we need not name, there was established Inst year a Dome Ci:b. A considerable number of intelligent In'Les, moved thereto by tho existence of a literary club among their husbands and brothers, fath ered together and formed a club among then selves for the study of historical cities. Dome wa9 chosen as the first city to be investigated its paean history, its Christian history, its arts in various departments, its relations to the world at various epochs, etc., etc. Subdivis ions of the larger topics were made, and sach womnn was given a branch to Riudy, with tho duty to write out her conclusions and results, and to read them at the weekly meetings of the club. It is declared to us by one who watched the developments of the enterprise that, as the result of that winter's most interesting work, this town contains the largest numher of women who know everything about Dome that any town In the United States can boast. Every available library was ransacked for ma terial, books were overhauled that were Hack with the undisturbed dust of a centmy, knowl edge was organized, put in form, and commu nicated ; and when tho winter closed, the wom en found not only that they had been immense ly interested, but that their field of knowledge had been very much enlarged. Tliis year, the Bams club will take up another city. Whether it will be London, or Fans, or Jernealem, or Athens, or Venice, we do not know and it dies not matter.
