MAGIC AND CHRISTIANITY
Tbe Topic of Rev. J. S. Thomson
Yesterday
AT SIMPSON TABERNACLE
Rcr. Job Turner, tbe Deal Mute
Missionary
Rev. Clarence T. Wilson on the Advantage
ol doednest—A Theosophltt •■
the Closing Cycle
A few who have ears to hear and
hear, and a number who have ears and
cannot hear, had the pleasure of wit
nessing yesterday afternoon most im
pressive services, consisting of prayer,
praise, the administering of the holy
communion and the delivery of a scrip
tural address by the Rev. Job Turner,
a deaf mute missionary, in Christ
church on South Flower street, of
which the Rev. A. S. Clark Is pastor.
For the benefit of the few who were
not acquainted with the sign language
much of the service was accompanied
with interpretations by the Rev. Clark.
Rev. Turner, however, Is such an adept
at the art of elucidating his ideas by
means of gestures and signs that much
was Intelligible without the explanatory
words and without familiarity with the
subject and it was easy to detect when
the accompanying words were too slow
or too much in advance.
A portion of the regular opening serv
ice of the church, the first Psalm, the
absolution, the creed and the Lord's
prayer, were given with the hymns,
Nearer. My God, to Thee and Rock of
Ages, with the assistance of Rev. Clark.
In the latter hymn the quiet language
was so expressive that in the lines "In
my hands no price I bring, simply to thy
cross 1 cling," it seemed as though the
thoughts were so realistically conveyed
that they must have been understood
by sight alone.
The sermon was taken from Luke lx:
33, It Is good for Us to be Here, and was
In part as follows: "Nearly nineteen cen
turies have past since the Savior stood
on the Mount of Transfiguration, hold
ing hallowed converse with the Great
Jehovah, touching the fulfillment of his
sacred mission to earth. This glorious
mission has brought to the Iwellers ot
the world bleslngs beyond computation.
Not the least of these Is thai spirit and
effort which brought about the educa
tion Hnd enlightenment of the deaf,
our speechless class, which was num
bered with the helpless.
"It is good to be here In the sacred
gratitude we feel toward the Great
Healer, for It was the Savior who first
unlocked the car and set free the tongue
of the unfortunate, and tt is by God's
grace that the lingers were taught the
''mining of imparting knowledge and
thnt the eye harnessed language.
Though sound comes not and intelligi
ble utterances fail us, yet are we blessed
In the avenues opened by Intelligent
loving education, by which we are made
partakers of the enjoyment of all that
letters give to the large majority.
"It is good to be here that we may hold
communion with one another, Inspiring
to noble, high nnd unselfish purposes,
awakening kindly charity toward each
other, putting aside every Inclination to
wrong, either by word or deed.
"It is good for us to be here when we
can say adieu to one another with broth
erly love, glad in our hearts for this
meeting, and heart swelling with trust
ing hope that at the great gathering
on the beautiful shores of eternity we
shall meet again where our natural
senses shall be made whole, as our
hearts shall be made perfect, washed
In the blood of the Lamb. Then will
the harmony of heaven, the first
sounds that shall reach our ears, be a
thousand fold more melodious than
thought can divine, and our voices unit
ing in sweet accord, swell the sym
phonies of the celestslal hostts.
Rev. Turner Is very venerable look
ing and of round and genial counte
nance, though deeply marked with fur
tows. In observing this to the Rev.
Clark after the meeting, tills gentleman
remarked that It was owing to. Mr.
Turner's wonderful power of conveying
thoughts and impressions by means of
quick changes of facial expression; that
he was an admirable caricaturist and
mimic, and full of humor. Jokes and
even puns, making him a most enter
taining companion. He was very cul
tured and could converse with ease In
the French nnd Spanish languages. His
greatest ambition was to go as a mis
sionary to Japan, the language having
no terrors for him. Rev. Clarke also
stated that the Santa Fe railroad had
given Rev, Turner a pass over Its lines
and that some of the other railroads
were endeavoring to furnish him free
transport also. He makes semi-yearly
frips from New York through the"south
to this coa.st In his missionary labors.
He Is now on his way to Berkeley, to the
state institution for deaf mutes. Where
fils visits are hailed with the greatest
pleasure. As a man of travel and cul
ture he Is able to bring them many
Ideas of Interest that tn their restricted
possibilities for Intercourse would oth
erwise be withheld.
The association for the Improvement
of deaf mutes in Los Angeles, of which
Mr. Thomas Widd Is president, Is do
ing good work. Mr. Widd, a native of
London. England, and also a deaf mute
has spent his life In working among his
fellows. He founded the Montreal in
stitute for deaf mutes, and for the last
seven years has labored in this cltv
In consideration of his service he has re
cently been licensed as lay reader by
the bishop The services of the asso
ciation are held In the St. Paul's guild
room. ■«»»«
At Unltv
Yesterday morning the pastor of Unity
. hutch, Jtev. J ,s. Thomson, preached
a sermon on Magic and Christianity tak
ing the text, A certain man. called Si
mon used sorcery, and bewitched the
people of Samaria, giving out that him
self was some great one—Acts viii 9
Magic is superstition in rites and cere
monies. Home of the rites and ceremon
ies in our churches, such as the laying on
of hands, and the use of the bishop's
crook, are relics of magic. Magic is a
very large subject, and a study of its
principles shows that it is related to an
imal magnetism, hypnotism.necromancy
incantation, divination, omens, charms'
dreams and enchantments, it seems to
be as old as religion; and It was practiced
by the ancient Egyptians, as the Book
of the Dead informs us. The Jewish high
priest divined the will of God by means
of the urim and thummim on his breast
plate. A study of magic requires 'a pro
found knowledge of Sanskrit, Hebrew,
and Arabic, and the classical languages
nf Greece and Rome must be studied
thoroughly for the same purpose. Egyp
tology and a deep knowledge of Masonic
lore are also necessary. That myster
ious work, called the Cabala, cannot be
understood without a perfect knowledge
of the Hebrew language.
In the Old Testament a great deal is
said about magic and kindred subjects.
Joseph as a magician Interpreted the
dreams of Fharoah. and used the divin
er s cur found in Henjamln's sack. The
rod with which Moses and Aaron per
formed many wonders In Egypt and In
the wilderness of Arabia was a magic
ian's wand. Aaron's rod devoured the
magic rods of the Egyptian enchanters,
who, as well as Moses, turned the water
of the Nile Into blood and created frogs.
Balaam's acts of enchantment are re
corded in the Book of Numbers: and he
is represented In the Old Testament and
Ir. the New Testament as a prophet of
God, although he was a diviner. Daniel
was the president of the Babylonian col
lege of magicians, as we learn from the
second, fourth and fifth chapters of Dan
iel. In the New Testament we have
several accounts of the contact of Chris
tianity with magic.
Magicians from the east visited the in
fant Christ, and offered him gifts; and
this occurrence Is recorded by Matthew
as a proof of the divine mission of Christ.
But thi« proof involves a recognition, the
recognition that the magicians were In
spired of God. The enemies of Christ
represented him as a worker in the black
art, and they attributed his miracles to
Satanic Influence and design. So he was
called a deceiver of the people. There
are four stories about magic in the Acts
of the Apostles. In the eighth chapter
Klmon, the sorcerer, appears as a won
derful personage. lie was regarded as
a manifestation of God, and he encour
aged the popular uellet In his divine
powers. The preaching of the gospel
and the miracles, performed by the
preachers, arrested his attention and sur
prised him. He was baptised as a con
vert; but afterwards it was discovered
that his wicked heart was unchanged,
when he offered the apostles money for
the power of the Holy Spirit. Peter's
severe and truthful words alarmed Si
mon. In the thirteenth chapter a false
prophet by the name of Bar-Jesus, and a
professed Jew, Is represented as an op
poser of the Christian missionaries. He
was a sorcerer. Paul smote him with
so much spiritual light that he became
blind. So Bar-Jesus had the same ex
perience that Paul had at his conversion.
The sixteenth chapter contains a story
about a female medium in Phlllppi. Her
spiritual power was prostituted and used
by her masters as a financial enterprise.
Her spiritual intuition recognized Paul
as a servant of the most high God; and
Paul recognized her spiritual gifts, and
exorcised the demon, and restored her
to her normal tnental condition. This
Philipplan medium Is a typical case of
hundreds of our age that debauch their
spiritual nature and become pretenders
and deceivers.
The nineteenth chapter gives us an
interesting aocount of the daring and
enterprise of the seven sons of Sceva, a
Jewish high priest in Ephesus. His
sons were exorcists, and they attempted
to cast out demons in the name of
Christ. The insane persons tore the
clothes off tho exorcists, frightened
them and chased them away. This mat
ter was reported and made a sensation
in the cltv; and it so operated upon the
minds of other enchanters that they
burned their magical text-books, which
contained explanations of the figures,
letters, symbols on the splendid image
of Diana, and which contained the rules
for using magical arts. The symbols
on the statue of the goddess, which
were Interpreted In the text-books, were
called the Epheslan letters. Magic had
a spiritual origin, but It degenerated
Into trickery and the black art. Mor
bid conditions of the mind are favorable
to that Insane curiosity which magic
pretends to satisfy In our day. "A
healthy mind in a healthy body" should
be the aim of every person; and any
thing that tends to corrupt the con
science, debauch tbe heart and befoul
the spiritual nature of man injures the
physical constitution. No one can win
a knowledge of truth from the universe
and tho omniscient teacher except by
hard work, obedience to law and conse
cration to noble ideals. There Is no
royal road to knowledge. He who stud
ies the Gospel, and nature, and history,
is safe from all new fads, notions and
unhealthy studies; and he who studies
the life of Christ and strives to follow
his divine example has a right to tho
Inspiration of God's holy spirit: and the
knowledge of such a person will be like
Aaron's rod—it will swallow up all the
rods of the Egyptian magicians. It Is
not wrong to study uncanny subjects, if
one has a strong mind; but it is danger
ous to allow one's mind to be saturated
with the superstitions of the black art.
Simpson Tabernacle
Rev. C. C. McLean, D. D.. preached
to the young people in Simpson taber
nacle yesterday morning. It being the
anniversary of the organization of the
Epworth league In the M. E. church, he
gave a condensed history of the organ
ization of this important society and its
rapid progress and effective work. The
speaker gave statistics showing the
rapid progress numerically this youth
ful society has made, and also referred
in glowing terms to the spiritual power
It has exerted in the work of the church.
Numerically its strength .is 1.350.000. Its
alms are to build up strong, pure Chris
tian characters among Its members and
to educate them in the spiritual graces
of the church, and in all their work to
lift up humanity toward God and do
their part in the evangelization of the
world.
A large audience was present In the
evening to hear Rev. Mysenhelmer, "the
boy evangelist," who spoke from Amos
iv:l2—"Prepare to meet thy God."
An Interview between God and man Is
Inevitable. It is sure to come, not only
at midday, but In the silent watches of
the night the Holy Ghost Is constantly
knocking at the door of your hearts.
Men may conceal all the acts of a life
time, but at death he confesses and re
veals all. As God approaches man con
fesses and reveals all. You cannot re
sist God when he comes and says your
days are numbered. There is no resort
you can make to avoid the inevitable.
We must meet the Almighty and answer
for our acts and our thoughts. Suppose
we had reached the final end of out
work nnd we should hear a blast from
Gabriel's trumpet every seat in this
tabernacle would be. turned into a
mercy seat. Christ said He might come
as a thief in the night. My brother, how
would it be if He should come tonight?
There are four steps in repentance:
First, contrition; second, confession;
third, appropriation by faith of God's
promises to save you; this is as far as
some people go; but the fourth step is
as essential as the other three: that is,
amendment of life. If your life is not
changed within and without It is of no
avail. I will give you an Illustration of
repentance—and the speaker trod the
rostrum slowly—saying as he did so:
To hell! To hell! To hell! Suddenly ho
about faced, saying: To heaven! To
heaven! To heaven! If a man is on the
downward course to ruin and turns
about, seeks pardon, changes his life,
that is repentance.
The speaker asked all Christians to
stand and offer silent prayer. Then he
asked any who wanted to seek God to
manifest it by rising to their feet, and
several arose. The evangelist offered a
fervent, pleading prayer for the peni
tents and any who wanted to seek
Christ, that they might be brought into
the light. After a short altar service
the general audience was dismissed and
an after-meeting was held. The service
will continue during the week.
Mr. Mysenhelmer Is an earnest worker,
does not aim to be sensational, but
rather to be calm and In dead earnest.
Miss Rosa Rosin, the contralto, sang
an excellent solo from the cantata of
Rebekah, by Barnby.
Central Methodist Episcopal
ti^ e ™,£Jf r^£Tr^ c w "*™ again filled
the pulpit at the Central M. R. church
last evening, taking as his subject The
Advantage of Goodness.
Godliness with contentment is great
gain, said the speaker. God has prom
ised to do great and wonderful things for
B & , offers to go into life partner
ship with us. to furnish the capital, take
the risks and give us the profits. Indeed,
I know of no commandment In His word
without a promise attached. He pro
poses to give us always the better end
of the bargain.. Now, one making such
an offer as that must have unlimited
tieasure as well as unbounded love else
utter and speedy bankruptcy would fol
low. But the eternal God makes the
offer; and giving to others does not im
poverish Him. lie has Infinite resources
and withholding cannot enrich Him. You
know the ocean does not suffer when
the sun lifts a million tons from Its bos
om; nor is it enriched when the Missis
sippi, gathering It up from ten thousand
slopes and springs, pours it back again.
And this Infinite Kather has said: "For
hrass I will bring gold, and for Iron I Will
bring sliver, and for wood brass and for
stones Iron." (Isaiah «0:17) Now, this
IiOB ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING-, MAY 18, 1898.
Is a proclamation of God's everlasting
principle to enrich us not by legacy but
by exchange. A fox gives its cunning, a
hare its timidity, a lion Its bravery to its
offspring; but the children of the earth's
wisest must begin life as Ignorant as the
children of the most untaught. We won
der why the most eminent saint cannot
give his graces to his children. We can
not see why Adam should beget a Cain,
David and Absalom or anybody a Judas;
but It vindicates the statement that God
proposes to enrich His children not by
endowment but by price. As there Is no
command without a promise there is no
promise without a condition. He is
faithful aud just to forgive our sins and
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Heart purity is the prize, but the condi
tion stands, If we confess our sins God
proposes to open the windows of heaven
and rain a. vast inundation of blessing
upon us. But what Is the condition?
Bring all the tithes of dally gain, the
brass, the Iron, the baser metals for
heaven's gold of wisdom, peace and love.
We must pay the will for goodness.
It Is not given free of charge. It costs
self. The consecration that we make
to secure pardon must be thorough.
God demands an unconditional surren
der and a whole-hearted consecration of
all we have and are. Indeed, even this
Is borrowed capital, for ye are not your
own, but are bought with a price. Then
we must put our sins into this invest
ment. How much of that kind of capital
we have on hand! But we have the tes
timony of an expert to the fact that good
ness is a good bargain even at such a
cost. The great apostle to the Gentiles
declares that godliness has the promise
Of the life that now Is and of that which
is to come. This is the honest declara
tion of Paul, who Is beyond dispute the
greatest, best and moot distinguished
of all the good of the age. And this
man asserts on authority of Inspiration
that the religion of Jesus Is universally
advantageous. There is no loss con
nected with it. but all lsj>rofltand gain,
for It secures man's best interest for botH
worlds. Paul saw the advantages of
being a Christian at their worst. It
meant sacrifice in his day; it cost all that
we generally hold dear to profess the re
ligion of Jesus. But Paul finds that even
then "Godliness with contentment is
great gain." Such is his estimate ot
goodness, and such he commends to
Timothy, and through him to you and
me. His words suggest the nature of
godliness, its relation to contentment,
and the advantages resulting from the
union of the two.
A Vital Question
S. M. Sayford spoke to a large and In
terested audience ot men at the Young
Men's Christian association yesterday
afternoon on the subject, A Vital Ques
tion. His remarks in part were as fol
lows:
There Is a tendency in these days to
live as if our being saved depended on
what we did and on our peculiar quali
ties and character. We live 'far short
of what we ought to be with the envir
onments God gives all who desire to
follow Jesus Christ. I want to put a
question here that each individual pres
ent can answer for himself. Dead or
alive, which? Put that question in the
light of the word of God to yourself this
afternoon. Men who walk up and down
these streets may be dead, there may
be men In this audience who are dead
dead In trespasses and in sin. There
are two worlds today, and In one or the
other Is every known object found —the
dead and the living worlds. A man not
alive in Jesus Christ may have more
beauty of character than some who
know Christ. Men get their eye on some
flaw In a Christian's life and then con
clude that there is nothing in Christian
ity. Watch this city at night, and in
some place you may see a poor light,
and then you will Judge the whole light
ing system by that one poor light and
want to go back to the old kerosene
lamps. It Is the same case if a man
is a poor Christian —some men will judge
all Christianity by him. Scientists
have been searching for years for the
origin of life, and have all been com
pelled to come to the conclusion that
germless air cannot produce life. In
the same way you cannot get spiritual
life by generation; it must come by its
being in touch with the life of God. We
say that death is a cessation of life.
Let us see if separation is not a good
definition. When a man dies a separa
tion takes place, the man living in the
body goes away and the body dies. Now
that is like spiritual life. Adam diso
beyed God and was separated from God
and became a dead man. Adam's off
spring was born In sin, separated from
God; that Is the way we are all born.
Then how can a man get back to God?
"You hath He quickened." The love of
God reaches down and touches the dead
souls of men and raises them up and
stamps them with the beauty of spirit
ual life. Transplant a man where you
will, he will remain a natural man and
will never become anything else until
he Is bom into the spiritual kingdom.
The Bible says, "Unless a man is born
again he cannot see the kingdom of
God," and In Revelations life is traced
to God himself.
Dead or alive, which? Not so much a
question of beauty as of condition. God
does not say that a man has to be good
to be saved. How good would a man
have to be? As good as he can? How
good can you be? Our standard of
goodness may be widely different. We
tnust be saved to be good. Thel condi
tion of a man whether he Is In or out of
Christ, whether he Is dead or afive, Is
the vital question of today. I wish we
could get every man here to look into
his heart and answer to himself this
searching question, "Where am I, an
individual, alone, who must after a
while give an account of himself to
God, dead or alive?" What are we go
ing to do about it? What a man does
physically will not make him alive. De
cide in your heart in regard to this ques
tion. Decide In the presence of God
and decide for Him and you will be born
again and will find life eternal.
Central Presbyterian
The large congregation at the Central
Presbyterian service in Y. M. C. A. hall
Sunday evening enjoyed a treat. The
music was all fine, but just before the
sermon Mrs. Aver, by request, sang
beautiful Galilee with tender sweetness
and Dr. Fowler's sermon followed about
Night on Galilee, or The Absent Christ.
The text was John 6:17, "And it was
now dark and Jesus was not come to
them."
Sacred in the annals and affection ot
the Christian faith is the Sea of Galilee.
Here was the earthly home and the
heavenly work of the incarnate Son of
God. His sacred form was imaged in
its bright waters. Upon the crystal face
of this sea He walked as upon solid
ground. Its lowly sands bore the Im
press of His holy feet. Here He said
peace to the winds, and the winds were
still. In yonder Capernaum he healed
the sick and raised the dead, and spoke
the words of life eternal. In the dim
starlight can be seen the grassy bank
where In our evening lesson he fed the
5000. It Is midsummer; the air in the
deep basin of the lake has become heat
ed like the air of an oven. The evening
change lifts it rapidly Into the upper
regions, and the heavy cold air rushes
into its place, down the narrow gorges,
shooting out upon the lake with a vio
lence that lashes the whole surface into
writhing, convulsive waves. So it was
on that memorable night when the dis
ciples wearied themselves with rowing.
It was dark, the sea tempestuous, their
hearts anxious and the Master not come
to them. John's terse tying of the
darkness with the absence of Jesus sug
gests the great truth that In times of.
distress of any sort it is always dark
until Jesus comes, or which amounts to
the same thing, until our faith takes us
to Jesus.
Whole churches are sometimes like
these disciples—wistful and weary at
the little progress made, at the rising
tide of worldliness which seems to
threaten the church with inundation.
The outlook Is dark, for Jesus seems
away. Well, the lesson for such an hour
is to do what the disciples did. It waa
dark and they were anxious, but they
kept on rowing and bailed out the over
flow of water. All the worldliness in
the world's sea cannot sink Christ's
church If only the waves are kept on
the outside of it. Keep the oars of prayer
and work In action and look up for His
presence who says, "So I am with you
alway."
So the day Is dark to the disheart
ened Christian, and there can come no
light until Christ's promises are fully
rested in and His will truly conformed
to.
Burdens In life often make It dark.
Either poverty, personal illness, tribu
lation over others—something it is sure
to be. How many He down on a bed of
anxiety, wearied out with wistful wor
ry! The sore of this world is trouble,
the cure of this world is faith. So It
was with the old English martyr, whose
courage at first forsook him when he lost
sight for a little of his master, but when
he had sought his Lord in earnest
prayer his sky cleared and he said, "I
can burn now."
The day is dark to the bereaved. How
gloom reigns in the house of the mourn
er, as at the sisters' home in Bethany.
"If the Lord had been here." Is the cry.
And the pain of separation is as Intense
today. The wife dies; the husband, the
child Is taken, and darkness It Is until
we listen to the whisper "I am the res
urrection and the life."
How dark It Is to the awakened sin
ner until Jesus conies to him. It is an
awful vision for a man to see Into his
own heart unless at the same time he
sees a Saviour's love. Christ Is the
llght-brlnger into every form of spirit
ual darkness. His pardon dispels
guilt. His spirit purges away defilement.
His joy Is the sure antidote of sorrow.
His consolation meets and relieves af
fliction. Well has Keble sung:
"Sun of my soul, thou Savior dear
It Is not night if Thou he near.
Oh, may no earth-born cloud arise
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.
Theosophical
Stanley Fltzpatrick spoke yesterday
morning at Odd Fellows' hall on The
Closing Cycle, Its Effect on the Destiny
of the World. The lecturer said in part:
Cycle means a ring or circle. The
cycle marks the law of periodicity and
denotes the length of time elapsing be
tween the periodical recurrence of the
same or similar events. All observation
shows the tendency of nature to work
in cycles, all evolutionary processes are
carried on in that way. All the universe
is built up from the original substance,
or "world stuff" called fire mist. This
fire mist, is in reality composed of liv
ing entitles which occult teaching terms
"fiery lives." These fiery lives build the
atom, numerous atoms form mulecules.
these form cells; a number of cells make
an organ; organs form bodies. The life
cycle of the atom is limited to the dura
tion of the molecule. So on upward. Or
gans composing a body cannot function
separately and apart from that body,
consequently their life cycle Is determ
ined by the duration of the body as a
whole. Now this law may be traced
from the atom up to the sun, thus show
ing the perfect correlation of life and
force throughout the universe.
There are great and minor cycles. The
greatest of which we can have any
knowledge Is this present manvantara
which includes the period entirely be
yond the understanding of man, which
elapses between the beginning of this
manifested universe and its end. But
this great cycle has been oft times be
fore, and will recur again, times beyond
computation.
There are other great cycles which it
would only be confusing to mention, as
we are so unused to dealing with such
vast numbers.
Before the evolution of man is com
plete he must pass through seven great
root races. We are now in the fifth race.
The duration of each race marks a cycle,
and as these cycles recur they bring
along with them corresponding phases
and events, though with each advancing
cycle a higher stage of evolution is
reached. Within the great cycles are
contained the smaller ones. Thus each
root race has seven sub-races whose du
ration forms seven lesser cycles within
the period of the great root race cycle.
These cycles are given by occult science.
Modern astronomy has taken note of a
few; though it can give no explanation
of their real significance.
Ancient astronomers knew more, for
they were adepts, or masters, of wis
dom. Evolution is bringing round again
the cycle when this wisdom Is to be
again made known to the world.
Every century forms a cycle and at the
close of each cycle and the beginning of
another is a period of transition during
which there must be more or less con
fusion. A glance back shows that the
more marked events of history have
most frequently occurred at the latter
part of the century. Last century
brought the establishing of this republic
and the French revolution. The close of
this century, which is also the close of
a great cycle of 5000 years, finds the
world In a state of commotion.
The adepts, elder brothers of the race,
who are ever working for humanity,
formed the Theosophical society that the
earnest workers might be gathered to
gether to labor as one body in helping
mankind over this most critical and dan
gerous period of evolution. These cycles
effect man because he is one with the
great whole; and all are bound together
and act and react upon each other from
the atom up to a god. This proves the
brotherhood of man and shows why
each one should work for all: for none
can stand or fall alone.
V. W. C. A. Meeting
The Gospel meeting of the Young
Women's Christian association at the
association's rooms was led by Miss
Teal, the general secratary, who took
as the basis of her remarks John 111. 16:
"For God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten Son that who
soever believeth in him should not per
ish but have everlasting life." Quite a
number of those present took part in the
meeting.
