GOD IN THE HOME
THE WORLD’S NEED A Godless World of Godless Homes a Growing Danger. OPPORTUNITY FREE TO ALL Pastor Russell Says Nothing That tho World Can Do Can Interfere With the Divine Plan—All Mankind Will Have Full Opportunity For Life or Death Eternal, Because Christ Died For the Ungodly. Elmira, N. Y., July l:i. Pastor ttussctl delivered J two addresses here Kw In The Home,” from the text. “As H for me and my house, wo will Mn serve the Lord” (Joshua xxiv, 15). [PASTOR RUSSELL)) rpj ie p ;ls t o r said:- I>o not under stand me to teach that the world’s op portunity for life everlasting or death everlasting is now. “God hath ap pointed a Day in which He will judge the world,” grant the world a judg ment or trial or test. That great Qay Is future. It is the Day of Christ, a thousand years long. 'lt will be a glo rious opportunity. Present right doing and right thinking, or wrong doing and wrong thinking will have much to do with the condition of every man and woman at that time. He or she will enter upon that Day of blessing and opportunity either from a higher or a lower standpoint proportionately as he or she has acted wisely and conscien tiously In the present time. But nothing that the world can do can interfere with God’s great proposi tion, that a full opportunity for life or death eternal shall then come to ev ery member of the race because Christ died for the ungodly. The only class to whom present life means life or death eternal is the Church. And by the Church I mean, not church at tendants nor outward professors, hut those who have entered into a cove nant with God through Christ and who have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, tasting of the good Word of God and the powers of the Age to come. If these should fall away, the Apostle forewarns us. it would he im possible to renew them again unto re pentance. And there will he no hope for them with the world, in the world’s trial Day, because they already have enjoyed their share of the merit of Christ’s death. When, therefore, I speak of God and the home, I am not having in mind a family composed exclusively of saints, who daily and hourly are following their great Redeemer’s footsteps in self-denial, in sacrifice, in the “narrow way” which lends to “glory, honor and Immortality” and association with the Redeemer in His glorious King dom which is to bless the world for a thousand years. My thought is that the Bible teaches that there are many people of the world, who are reverential, kind, gen tle and just to a very considerable degree, who are not saints; who have not presented their bodies living sac rifices to God; who have not been be gotten of His Holy Spirit, who arc not, therefore, members of ttat exclu sive “little flock” to whom it is the Father’s good pleasure to give the Kingdom—in joint-heirship with their Lord and Redeemer and Head. To this latter class our Master evidently referred when He said to His footstep followers, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew v, 16). To live righteously, soberly arid god ly in this present world to the extent of one’s ability is what everyone should do—no less. To live a life of sacrifice—to lay down our lives for the brethren, for the truth, in the service of the Lord, is another matter, which justice does not require and which the Bible nowhere enjoins upon mankind. It is pointed out as a privilege to those who desire it, and glory, honor and im mortality on the spirit plane is the re ward attached to this invitation or High Calling. It is the selection of this special class of consecrated ones that is the particular order of the Di vine program at the present time. Saint and Sinner Interested. Having cleariy defined what we do not mean to teach, let me now assert that, nevertheless, every sensible man and woman, saintly or not, must feel n deep interest in the welfare and moral progress of the human family, of which he forms a part. All. there fore, should rejoice in every move ment and endeavor working to even temporary enlightenment, blessing and uplift amongst mankind. The many benevolent institutions of the civilized world attest this general thought. My only conflict with these humanitarian efforts is that they do not approach the subject of human betterment from what I consider to be the right stand point. With nearly all of these efforts, more or less distinctly stated, are those God-dishonoring and love-oppos ing intimations of an alternative of torment, either purgatorial or eternal.

WALKER 1204 Grand Ave. OPPOSITE CEMETERY ENTRANCE harm—driving Intelligent minds Into opposition to the tme God and the Bi ble, which Is the revelation of His Wis dom, Justice. Love and Power. The Bible freely tells us that many features of the Div'ue plan are now hidden in mystery, but the last book of the Bible, which prophetically pic tures the future, assures us that in God’s due time “The mystery shall be finished, which He hath declared to His servants, the prophets” (Revela tion x, 7>. The same book assures us that in God's due time, when the mys tery is cleared. “All nations shad come and worship before Thee, for Thy righteous acts have been made mani fest” (Revelation xv, -1). We are now living in the time when the “mystery” is ending and the righteous dealings of God, from the Scriptural standpoint, may be clearly seen. But these revelations are not meant for the world in general now, but merely for “the elect,” the “sanctified in Christ Jesus." “To you it is given to know the mysteries;” to outsiders these things are spoken in parables and dark sayings (Matthew xiil, 11, 13). But not until the elect shall be glori fied and the Messianic Kingdom es tablished will the “mystery" be made fully known to cue world and every knee bow r and every tongue confess. Hence, only those of a contrite heart may now see, now understand, the real character of God. His real purposes to ward man, etc. Thus our Lord de clare?!, “This is life eternal that they shou. j know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent” (John xvii, 3). In a darker day than ours the theory, “to doubt is to he damned,” held such a power over many that they dared not use their reason. And thus a certain reverence for God was maintained in many homes—a reverence, however, which surely would not be as highly appreciated by the Creator nor have as deep an influence upon the creature as would a faith moved by love and an, intelligent appreciation of the Di vine character, based upon an under standing of the Divine Plan of the Ages. An Inundation of Unbelief. In our day the shackles of ignorance and superstition are breaking. Men, women and children are beginning to think for themselves. They no longer believe the fairy tales of other days; the dreadful hobgoblins and night mares of the Dark Ages respecting purgatory and eternal torture are doubted by all, and by the great mass totally disbelieved. What have they now to attach them to the Almighty, since they have never been taught the love of God—the lengths and breadths and heights and depths passing all hu man understanding? This is the world’s great need—to know God as He really is, a Father, a Friend, a God of love! And to thus know Him the people need to be taught how serious ly they were austaught in the past along the lines of hell and purgatory. How could they ever truly love and worship a God of injustice and of hate —One inferior to themselves—One who knew, foreordained and prepared for their torture, before they were born. They must see that these things, taught by the creeds of the Dark Ages, are wholly at variance with the Bible, else they will never come back to the Bi ble nor be able to see its teachings in their true light. They must be taught that the sin and death, serrow and trouble all around us are the wage or penalty of father Adam’s disobedience. They must learn that God proposes a blessing and uplifting which will be as world wide as is the curse. They must learn that the foundation for this work was effected by the death of Jesus, the Just for the unjust. They must learn that God is now selecting a saintly class to be associates with the Redeemer in the wo-’, oi uplifting and blessing Adam and his race; and that each will be held responsible and receive stripes in proportion to his knowledge and wilful disobedience; and that the persistently rebellious will be destroyed “like natural brute beasts,” in the Second Death. “I Have Lost My God.” Not long since, in conversation with a young lady, she said with great con cern, “I fear that I have lost my God.” Asa child of religious parents she had had helpful influences in her homp, but in school she had come in contact with the general spirit of skepticism, which, instead of repudiat ing the Bible, as did Ingersoll, Paine and Voltaire, merely smiles at any ref erence to a Divine revelation, a faith in God and a respect for His will. These teachers are as honest, we be lieve, as were Ingersoll, Paine and Voltaire; nor can we deny that they have the same right to their disbelief that we claim for our belief. We can, however, say with all sincerity that it is a great pity that the learned men of Christendom are nearly all infidels, in the sense of not believing in the Bible as a Divine revelation. Many of them even deny that there is a personal God and ascribe every thing to—a great Nothing, which they designate Nature-god. Is it surpris ing, in view of the fact that these teachings are being promulgated in the universities and colleges and theo logical seminaries, in the high schools, and even to some extent in the com mon schools—ls it any wonder that the rising generation is losing its God? If it even be claimed that a bad thing is better lost than kept, we must dis sent from their course. We must claim that the misconception of God can be destroyed only by the introduction to the heart and mind of the true God. whose glorious attributes of Justice. Wisdom. Love and Power will take the place of the malevolent miscon ceptions of tho Dark Ages. Awakened Parental Responsibility. Tt Is high time that parents realize Pr. Herijian T.

The seeds of unbelief, already sown In the minds of the rising gen eration, are being watered continually and are growing. All who love their families, all who love mankind in gen eral, should awaken to the fact that a world that has lost its God must of necessity be an unhappy world. Pla tonic philosophy may for a time serve the purposes of the few, but surely cannot serve the masses of our race. A godless world will ere long mean a discontented world, an unhappy world and, bye and bye, a world of anarchy and strife. This is what our world wide education is leading to. Few of our nice can stand an education which recognizes no God, no revelation of Him, no responsibility to Him, and no hope of a future life which will be effected by the conduct of the pres ent God In the Home. We are not pleading for cant and rant. We are urging that in every home Cod be recognized to the extent of the opportunities and influence we enjoy. Parents have a special respon sibility. Every father, in particular, as the head of his family, should rec ognize the Almighty Creator, and hold Him up to his family—“ God First!” We need not urge upon God’s conse crated people the privileges of pray er and the blessed influence which comes through prayer to the younger members of the family. This is one Way of putting “God First.” “In all thy ways acknowledge Him,” or, as Joshua said: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Let us now step into your home and measure things there by the Golden Rule. As husbands, how do you treat your wives? As wives, how do you treat your husbands? Can you apply the Golden Rule to your words, to your conduct, to your demands of each other? Or do you act meanly, selfish ly, taking advantage of each other, to the limit that the other will for bear? Do you deal with your children according to'the lines of the Golden Rule? Are you an ideal parent, ac cording to your own advanced stand ard of what a parent’s duty should be to his children? Do you remember that you have a responsibility for their training, a re sponsibility so far as your circum stances will permit, for their environ ment and happiness and education and general preparation for usefulness in life? Or are you indifferent to their interests, neglectful of your responsi bilities? Do you recognize that your children have certain rights and that these increase as they near maturity, or are you forgetful of these, disposed to keep the children under the re straints of childhood, souring their dis positions and making them unhappy, until they resent the injustice and a family quarrel results? As children, are you thoughtful of your parents, their welfare, their wish es, their happiness, as you would like your children to be thoughtful of yours? Do you remember the hours and weeks of feebleness and sickness and toil which you-cost them in-your infancy, and are you seeking to repay those kindnesses and seeking to make their last days the happiest of their lives? Are you observing the Golden Rule toward your parents? How is it in your relationship to your brothers and sisters? When ihey bor row your things without leave, do you retaliate by borrowing theirs without leave, and thus keep up a continual fret and vexation of spirit in the fam ily? Or do you practice the Golden Rule of justice and do nothing to your brother and sister, or their belongings, that you would not wish them to do to you or your things? “Lovo V/erketh No III.” All of the Lord's people are to love Him and the brethren; yea, even their enemies. However, let us now stop short of love and merely consider what the simpl.e justice of the Golden Rule would imply in our conduct. Flow do our daily lives square with this Golden Rule of absolute justice, omittiug love entirely? If you are an employer, do you treat your employee in harmony with this rule and do unto him as you would have him do unto you, if your posi tions were reversed? If you are an employee, inquire of yourself, “Do I treat my employer and his business as I would have him treat me and my business, if our relationship were re versed?” Do you treat your butcher, your baker, your grocer, etc., as you would like to have them treat you, if your positions were reversed? Are you polite to them and not inclined to give them unnecessary trouble? Do you pay them promptly? Or if you are the tradesman, do you treat your customers as you would wish to have them treat you, if conditions were re versed? Do you charge them a rea sonable price only? Do you give them proper weight and measure? Do you properly rei (resent your goods to them, as you would have them represented to you? Are you a good neighbor? Do you see to it that your children are not a nuisance to others; that your chickens are not permitted to damage your neighbor’s garden: that your dog is not a ferocious one, and that bis bark does not keep the neighborhood awake? In a word, do you treat youf neighbor justly, along the lines of the Golden Rule, doing unto him only as you would wish him to do to you? He who is faithful in little things will be faithful in the greater ones. He who practices the Golden Rule during the six days of his contact with busi ness will surely be faithful on the sev enth. but faithfulness to the Golden Rule on the one day only will never win Divine approval. In no way can we better honor and show our reverence for God than by following to the best of our ability His commands, which are iu3t and right eous altogether.

Uncle Jenk and Aunt Nervy Spigler, having been unable to get along peace ably together, had separated, on an amicable basis. Uncle Jenk took up his abode In an old men’s home; Aunt Nervy kept the cottage and garden, and also retained the slender bank account. Under this arrangement the two old people were on the friendliest foot ing and Uncle Jenk made neighborly calls upon his wife at f.-equent inter vals, often doing small bits of work about the premises, fer which Aunt Nervy scrupulously paid him. On one occasion, the plastering hav ing fallen from the celling, Uncle Jenk solicited the job of repairing, naming $6 as his price for the work, which Aunt Nervy considered excessive. "Why,” she protested, “I know I could get Andy Oatch to do It cheap er than that.” “Mebby ye might,” allowed Uncle Jenk, mildly, ‘but I ain’t nimble, like Andy; It’d take me a good bit longer than what It would him. ’Sides that, even If you could git the work done a little cheaper, I should think you’d favor one that’s kin to you, rather than a stranger."

COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE. KDGAU. - Misses Emma Kind and Alma Hel ler of Fond du Lac, were visiting at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Gus. Schneider for a few days this week. Ira Stein went to Wausau last Thursday. Mrs. F. Hertz and children of Mer rill are visiting at the home of Mis. E. Eagen. Misses Ella and Bertha Zepp were Wausau visitors Friday. Mr. Clarence Hertz of Merrill, ar rived here Saturday evening to spend Sunday with his mother, Mrs. F. Hertz at the home of Mrs. E. Eagen. He returned home Monday being ac companied by his mother, sister and brother. The Stevens Point orchestra gave a dance at the M. W. A. Hall Tuesday evening. Mr. Walter Kratwell sprained his ankle last Sunday by playing ball. He is now able to be around without his crutches. DANCY. Harvest is on and crops are turning out very good, in this section. The series of cyclones and hail storms that have passed through this locality missed us by a close margin. The only damage was that a few windmills were put out of working condition. The young people of this neighbor hood enjoyed a pleasant Sunday out ing at Whitehouse landing on the Wisconsin river. Mr. and Mrs. D. Corlett are enjoy ing a visit from relatives in Michigan, at their pleasant farm home in Eau Pleine. F. C. Winters of Elkhorn was in this village buying hay the past week. Mr. Winters, who is a leading resi dent of Elkhorn, stated that they have not had rain in that locality for three months, and their entire crop, excepting corn, is lost, and unless rain falls soon their corn will not be saved. Valuable stock has been sold at a small figure, for want of feed. This part of the country this year is fortunate in having no shortage in any crop, and having fodder in abund ance. Harry Marchel and sister, Miss Grace, were those from here who at tended the dancing party at Mosinee last Thursday evening. Roscoe Unland and two brothers, and their friend, Mr. Carter of Peoria, 111., and tne Misses Kathleen and Isabel Guenther of Knowlton, and the former’s friend, Miss Evelyn Johnson of Chippewa Falls, and Miss Gladys Altenburg were guests of Evelyn Knoller and brother, George last Tuesday. Owing to the. rain storm that prevailed that evening, they were obliged to extend their visit until the following day, and, to pass away time, had a dancing party in E. Topham’s hall. A few days ago the extensive land holdings of R. R. Bourland of Peoria, 111., in the Dancy drainage district, were sold to other Peoria parties, who expect to begin developing same the coming fall. They will erect sub stantial buildings, and start cultiva tion. The crops growing in the dis trict cannot be beaten anywhere in this part of the country. In places it was wet last spring after the unusual wet spell, but in other parts of the state it has been too dry, and crops are lost, so on the whole we feel well used. Where the district was too wet last spring, excellent hay is being harvested, so it seems some good comes out of everything, if we look for the good side of it. FOR SALE.
