1aav Paw, Michigan, May 3d, Last week the Greenback paper of this village devoted a column and a half to what it rlaimei to be strictures or answers to aomo reumts by this journal of tbe prerioua week, oq the currency question. V"e Lave looked through the article for tome argument against those advance 3, but bare discovered nothing beyond this conundrum. "If i mm owe one hundred dollars an! is possessed of batten.

N. Y. Wcrli ll'Aaf i Convtrilin r Observation lum shown ua that tba word conversion is much used in thel Christian world and applied in a variety of cases, but not al ways with JudKment and propriety. What passes for conversion among soma men will not be admitted by tbe art-seeing (Jod, it being ouly tUe adoption of 'religions principles, con formity to tortus of devotion, attendance at places of publc worship, assuming a name as contradistinguished from others among tbe proreebiotis of religion, zeal in defending and propagation creods, or some peculiarity of Hontimeut. Having offered these ideas on tbo impure, .proceedure to tbe true conversion of tba boul in a theological senso, is our theme to teicli ami t-njuv. I CouvooLn is a thorough change of heart, fortho unrcseuerated heart is carnal, and en mity with (iod; eo tbat before reconciliation CAU uke ',Uc0' or lore, ympathy, wd sweet et-1 raptura .How to tbe soul, a cbango must be made or a turning effected. We are born with our back toward od, and before we can walk with our eyes fixed upon tbo Morning-star, we must be turned square around. Ezek. 26:26 coutaius God's proinme to make thin change by giving us a new heart : A new heart will I also giva you. aud a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away tbe stcny heart out of your tlo.su." Iu this day of light and mo of thought, (strange opinions are held as regards this work of God in tbe heart of man. borne churches teach an impossibility of a change of heart, claiming a cbango of purpose all bead work instead. We readily admit tbat Daniel purposed that ba would not deCla himself, but that was not conversion: aud the Book says - bo purpo-cd iu his heart." An examination of both heart and mind will enable us to bridge the dirticulty. First, the heart is the organ of tbe blood's motion, tiie center of sympathy, lovo and emo tional action. Tho mind ia tbo intelligent pow er iu man. the eo.it of will or volition, the cen ter of knowledge which never dios. Hence - we shall know as we are known." ' Secondly, thete two. tbo center of emotion and intelligence, entering into one. form the coat of vitality; and it is impossible to destroy or renew the one without the other. Eveu so a change cannot be wrought, or new life given without turning, not only these two centers, but tha whole person from center to circum ference. Conversion hi a center work, turning man to God. There are many religious zealot) in the land trjiog to prepare the way of tbe Lord by an exterior or .circumference work, a con formity to bigoted sectarian ideas. Pharisee like, they seek to cleanse tbe outside of the cup I and platter, which our Saviour appropriately ' compares to a whited sepulehre witbont : while tha heart within presents to ths All-seeing Eye j a most appalling spectacle of dead men's 1 bones, skeleton forma of human misery in dreadful corruption, offensive, putrefying, mouldering; but alas! this is tbo picture of unregenoratod man, and to cleanse aucb the center of vitality must be set in motion and communication be opened "with Ilim tbat teacbeth in ail good tthings." The law of the Lord is perfect converting the soul." If the sinner is left in his loathsome condi tion we shall liud him ero long like a pent-up prisoner in a frightful dungeon, still in his chains Lut dead. O. sinner '. get down to the aea-jude of tho great ocean of God s own truth and teaching, walk beailo the betutifal shores, drink in tbe glorious breezes, and batbo often iu the blessed waves thou wilt rind in plenty there. Ana toon thou shalt be tbjself again, abctttrself than ever, wiih checks all aglow Mitli health, pulse enplatic as of yore, not a crvons dread in ail tby thoughts, aud thiuLing h tLiogs as thou couldst not tbypk bel'orej iLe BCa ay to tbe sea! Tboro is newness ci in those waters clear and pure. Yes. conversion ia dunking tho puro water of life, moisteniug the soul long parchod by sin. Con- , version is an act consequent to faith repent ; ance. All tha persuasion we may put forth will i not avail if our hearers do not believe in con ! version. No person would get the heart changed i or turned if they believed it could not be. Con version to the sinner is something ideal, fau- cied or imaginary; but to those with a clean ; heart and new spirit, it is tne only real or new ; life all other ways load to tho scalding depths ! of eternal death and despair. Then let us show tbo world tbat P.eligion is not merely an ap l endago to life but that it ia life itself. Con version is to choose life and to turn from sin, to be freed from its Lot iron chains tbat chafe tbo sou!, and if net broken will irritate the soul i to all eternity. Wo must turn in time or burn to all etercity. Hark! boar tho voice of God. ; " Turn ye, turn je from your evil ways, for why i w;i; ye die ? " This turning is not a simple for j faking of sin. but a thorough change of the wboie being. Tbat once loved darling, sin. must bo bated, nud Jesus, once despieed. must be loved. Ye?, that turning is passing through tbo coals of Tesus' love: being transformed by the renewing of His jjrace. Conversion is pre ceded by rcpentanco and self-consecration. But drops of grief can ne'er repay The debt of love I owe. Here. Lord. I give mvself awav, Tis all tbat I cau'do. Although gnof or rivers of tears cannot wah away our guilty stains, when we go to Calvary's brow and too tbat man there, mark tbo drop ping of His gore from the woundod side and lacerated back, I know tears will drop on tbe blood-stained apex. Conversion is the scaling of Ca'rary's brow, having the rrocioua blood applied to our waiting t-ouls. Sinners often climb tha rugged mountain path alone, but Jesus goes with them down the straight path on the ether side to deeds of usefulness, sym pathy and love. Ah ! dear friends, this visit to Calvary is conversion, consequent to repent - ance. an,i Jesus, the eeventy and the twelve gave tLl, tLe;r flr9t eB30D It ffaa tbo yoice I of one cryiiig in tha wilderness, and should be i tbe voico from the pulpit of to-day. Thou it j would be eaid as of Paul and Barnabas at An ti jeb: "Tbo band of the Lord was with them. and a great number believed and turned unto Lord." Thus furniehing the beautiful idea of the l aternal land. May it bo with, us. Conversation ii a restoration of the soul from tbe darkneea of ignorance to tha light of Divine knowledge. Ignorance ta general where tbe means of knowledge are not realized. Reason, if left to Itself, is a lamp without light. We have ample proof of this truth in the history of past agea and at tbe present day among the heathen. The first Christiana were brought out of darkness into the marvelous light of tbe gospel. " For God who commanded tbe light to shine out of darkneea hath s hi nod in oar heaits, to give the light of lbs knowledge of the glory of God in tbe face of Jesua Chrisc." Conversion restores tbe soul from the oppress ive weight of guilt to a etate of conscious ac ceptance with God. This transition is wonder ful. The moral incumbrance is thrown off and the soul risen into liberty. Its slavish fears are instantly banished, and it enters into a stato of joyful assurance of the Divine power. Being justified by faith we have peace through our Lord Jesus Christ," Beta. 5 chap.. 1 versa. Conversion is clearest Been when viewed in the region of heaven's sunlight and Divine truth; persist in looking at it with your own lamp, however well trimmed, and you shall cot see it at all. Conversion must be viewed in the great light winch is its own. Hear that Divine voice, s meetly saying. " Look unto me all ye ends of the earth." When that penitent glance is cast upon tbe Sun of Kighteousnesa, tbe redex of His beauty stamps itself upon tbe soul, while the bright, golden rays bury themselves iu the heart, Hhming through tbe countenance to light up other hearts. This is conversion, aiid no name will be enrolled among the corps called " tbe light of the world ' until tbe divine rays fill tho heart aud light tbe countenance. View conversion as you may, it is a great work, costing a great sacrifice, even tbe humili ation and death of Immanuel. Though great of itself, it is only tbe beginning of tbe work so glorious tbat only God can perform iu tho soul. It is tbe time when tbe "new song" with joy ful cadence bursts from overflowing hoarts tilled with tbe love of God; ay ! tbo ftps send forth tbe soDg of graco, even praine to Him who is Love. This is after tbe feet are taken from tbe pit of mire and clay and placed upon the rock. It ia the eweet calm and peaca that comes to tha breast of him who now is found but once was lost in the maze of sin. Lost lost ! tbat is a terrible cry. It makes tbe ear to tingle. It curdles tbo blood in the veins. Think of the lone raft at tea. tbe child in tbe wood, the traveler upon Sahara's strand, or tbe miner in a closed up pit; a castaway, a forlorn, hopeless yaif at midnight's dark, cold hour, for whom no oe cares ! But what are these scenes compared toVfOul shedding scalding tears in the worlds of eternal despair, completely, final ly, eternally loft. 0, lost one, take heart, for is it not written " The Son of man came to seek and to tave tbat which was lost" ? When the prodigal, lost in sin and dead to virtue, is re ceived safe and sound by the sinner's Friend and the Lover of his soul, then is conversion wrought. Well might Jesus say " Give me thine heart and be willing to be saved by yielding thyself to me. Is it tbe opening of my arms you want ? I opened tbem upon the tree, and to show how wide open they were I had tbem nailed so far apart that they could not be open ed wider; my very heart was pierced until it ran with streams of blood to show tbat my whole self is open to every guilty, weary sinner tbat shall come to me for rest." Tbo going to Jesus and being folded in tbosa " everlasting arms" is tbo conversion of our souls. There is a distance between tho sinner and Jceus. but tbe converted bouI is homeless no longer and nestles close in the heart's dear refuge, even ia Him who eaid " Abide in me." Oh. well might wo shudder at tbe realization of tba commit ment to the Christian to warn men from their sins! God says "If thou dost not epeak Ij warn the wiiked from his way. that wicked man shall die in lus iniquity, hut his blood rail I re quire at thine bands." Let us pray as did Da vid. " Itestoro unto me tbe joy of thy salvation and uphold mo with thy free spirit, then will I teach transgressors thy ways, and siuners shall be converted uuto thee." Our work in this matter ia great. Think of sou's " dead in tres passes and in sins." then we tho medium tbro' which God works for their conversion ! I never was fit. says Pason. to say a word to a sinner, except when I had asbroken heart myself, as though I bad just received pardon to my soul. It is eaid of Alleine tbat he was insatiably and infinitely greedy for tbe conversion of ouls: of McCteyne. that ha seemed daying to have men converted, and when couls were withheld ha began to fear some bidden evil was provok ing tbo Lord and grieving rho Spirit. Nothing can to more indecent, pajs Baxter, than to hear a dead preacher speaking to dead sinners the living truth of the living Cod. How many bavo warned others of a place cf torment to which they hastened thcmselvos. promising lib- CllJ IU UlUf ID, ICl I UUUIOCI T lq II1U COi ,0 411,0 Ul corruption. " Lord, is it 1 ? Am I one of thoso persona?" may well be tho cry of each one of us. O. Brethren, we have done well to come together, if it ba only to remind one another that the Lord's arm is not hhortencd nor Ilia grace less full and free. After these few remarks for our good, we conclude, by saying that our work in the con vernion of souls is to break tbe hearts of sin ners. You have all beard of tbe poor stone- breaker's reply to tbe minister who observed bim breaking stones with a hammer, and kneel ing, the better to get at bis work. The minis ter said. " Ah, John, I wish I could break tbe stony hearts of my hearers as easily as you'are breaking those stones." 'Terbaps, Master," replied tbe man, "you don't work on your knees' Tbe great necessity of conversion is very plain when we behold the iniquity of tbe world, and our blessed Savior pointed o this nececsity when He said, Except ye be con verted and become even as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Every place of wickodnese and every form of sin prove the necessity of convorsion or re generation. Let us pray Lord, drive all sin far from my hevrf. And all its power destroy; Thv ima?e. Lord, to ma impart And fill my soul with Joy. , O. E. Mi'rray, Lawton.
