14 THE HERALDREPUBLICAN SALT LAKE CITY UTAH MONDAY NOV 15 1909
APOSTLE WHITNEY
ON CHURCH LAWS
Tabernacle Speaker Urges His
Hearers to Keep Sabbath
and Pay Tithes
SUNDAY WORK IS UNWISE
NO PROFIT ACCRUES AND A
STARVED SOUL DWARFS MAN
In a strong sermon replete with Scrip
hrdl quotations In prouf ot He stand
talon AJosUe Orson F Whitney exhort
ed his hearers at the tabernacle yester
day afternoon to yield obedience to the
1IW of tithing as It was given ot God
a and by so doing prepare the way for the
principle ot consecration which must
prevail among the Saints before the com
Ing ot the Messiah Apostle Whitney
also spoke at length on thc commandment
to keep holy the Sabbath day
The entire auditorium of the tabernacle
was flllld by an Interested congregation
T p services were presIded over by Pres
ident John R Winder Invocation was
offered by Elder Joseph S Yells fol
lowed by rendition ot the anthem Ye
Slmpl Souls Who Stray by the choir
Apostle Iutneys opening remarks
acre on the commandment given by God
to keep holy the Sabbath day and were
flIowed later by a discourse on the law
of tlthinS He salll in part
I do not thInk we should drive bar
gains with the Almighty and only obey
lam when we feel sure ot a reward If
we make a sacrifice In a proper spirit
yc will receive a far greater blessing
tan the sacrifice that we have made
Gd never demanded a sacrifice but that
he had in store a great blessing
Sunday Work Unprofitable
l man who Ignores the Sabbath day
w 10 works on the Sabbath and thus
breaks the Jaw of God wilt not be as ca
pable of Working on the Monday as the
man who works but six days and ob
serves the Sabbath day Xo man ever
broke a commandment ot God and ever
made anything by It I never knew ot
a thing done on the Sabbath day but
tat had to bl done over again This
law did not have Its origin In a caprice
or a whim but In a desire to bless JOan
and to make him more capable and strong
to work during the six days allotted for
labor
laborGod doe not need our favors 1Ye
he not the power to bless Almighty
God It Is the greater that blesses the
lisslr and when we keep Gods com
mandments It III In order that we may
be blessed and not him There Is only
one way to progress and that Is to keep
i s commandments among which Is to
keep the Sabbath day holy Ian needs
rest one day In Been This rest Is
really a change In activity On the Sab
bath lM there Is opportunity given for
t a feeding of the spirit
The spirit of God Is the food of the
spirit of man Ian Mormonism says Is
a spirit and a body combined The spirit
and the body constitute the soul The
spirit came down from God it was his
Son to a preexistent life It came down
1HC to get a body that It might become
a dng soul The promise Is given that
If we are faithful In keeping Gods com
nandmentq the spirit and the body
t ough they may be mporaril divorced
l what we call death yet they shall be
reunited and the soul of manthe spirIt
arid the hotly combinedwill go on to
eternal perfection
Some people take good care ot their
tJrses their cattle their sheep their
sw m In fact much better are than
tC take ot themselves We take care
or our bodies only because we are forced
tC But how many are careful In tak
II g are of the spirit that part of the
o i1 of man of which God was the au
t1or
Soul Needs Sustenance
Tie Sabbath day was set aside that
nan might rest from his tempo11 labor
aid I come to the Klise ot the Lord to be
fc J by the spirit of God Our spirits need
f d In clue season just the same as do
t bodies and If we negle them they
wmil starve and dwindle and die Fast
Ig humbles the flesh and brings It down
into subjection and the spirit gains Its
ascendancy and the man gains a blessing
Anything good can be prevented by tx
cess Even fasting can be carrIed to ex
I ss EJl spirits might take possession
c the soul under such circumstances
t at is J where too much fasting had been
a1led on
I do not think that + God ever gave a
lIsslll to man that be did not Intend
liS a blessing In tiN early das ot this
tur h In 1m the Lord gave a com
Jlandment to the Saints called the law
of tithInga much misrepresented and
n is Ii misunderstood principle You
would think from comments made In the
latter days that no other burch had ever
Tt qulred tithes of Its members We are
told however that Moses the great law
g vcr ot Israel Instituted the law ot tlth
fi g among the tribes of Israel In the
m Iderness Obedience to this law was
Ql11rld of that ancient people and so
strut l was this requirement that It was
considered robbery of God It men tailed
ti Jhstfe this sacred law
Now this samr last was revealed
1
again to a prophet of God That prophet
has been put to death his memory has
been reviled that law has been much
maligned and misrepresented but It Is
still the Jaw ot God and it will be the
law of God when traducers are In the
hand of oblivion Efforts are being made
to make people believe that It Is a ty
rannical rule that the money goes to the
priests ot the burch Do you know how
these men are supported Not one dollar
Is devoted to salary for the officers of the
church The church years ago made cer
tain Investments and It is the Interest on
these investments that goes toward pay
ing the men who devote their entire time
to the church There Is not a second
rate bookkeeper In any bank or business
house who does not get a bigger salary
than an apostle or other high church of
ficial It certain men of the church were
to put their efforts In other directions
they could command salaries ranging
from 710000 to 20000 a year A man like
B H Roberts If he were a Methodist
minister or a Catholic priest could draw
1000G a year salary and people would be
glad to PRy It If he dill not do other
work besides the work or the church hI
like many ot the others would not be
able to support his family
Money for Education
Every one knows that it takes consid
erable money to live In this American
city of ours especially when It comes to
paying taxes All high churchmen have
to do other work to make ends meet And
yet we are slandered and reviled as
though we were pirates Ye challenge
comparison with the ministers of other
churches we challenge comparIson ot the
money given them and the little money
given us to support tis Our wives do
their own cooking md their own washing
and still we arc accused of lIving In lux
ury These accusations are nothing but
antlIormon bosh And ranting
I can tell you where the tithing money
goes A quarter of a million dollars an
nually Is gIven to the church school sys
tem to educate children of the Latterday
Saintsto teach them about God as well
as the learning ot the world Part ot it
Is used for building temples stake taber
nacles meeting houses and In the general
promotion of the cause of God
This Jaw was Instituted that th
church might have a revenue to carry on I
Its work and It does not go Into the pock I
ets of the leaders of the church and I I
know what I am talking about There Is
not a stricter or more honest man In the I
whole United States than President Jo
seph F Smith lIe can account for ey I
cry dollar of the peoples money and Is
so exceedingly sensitive that he dos not I
take half what he needs and what he
ought to have The leaders ot the church
observe that law as well as the Saints
It Is a Jaw of discipline to prepare us
for still greater things There Is greater
law coming At the present time It Is
shelved as the piople are not really for
it This law Is the law of consecration
It will require a consecration of our lives
of our property and of everythIng we
possss for the furtherance of the work
ot God In the earth 1nt not until we
have that law can Zion be built up We
are coming to that time
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming to
reign on the earth and the law of con
secration will have to be practlsel1 and
In force to prepare the way before tlll
time of his coming This muchmooted
law of tithing which Is ten times less
than the law of consecration Is only a
schoolmaster to teach us the greater and
higher Jaw which will have to be In
force before the Son of God an come and
Zion will riSE and become the joy ot the
whole earth
Following the sermon the choir sang
Let the Mountains Shout for Joy The
audiences then joined In singing the Dox
o1og and benediction was offered by El
der Jospnh E Taylor

Army means little more than a group of
blueclad men and women who with a

the least phases ot the Arms efforts
The following Incidents all from experi

An old bass drum pounded vigorously
by one ot a little group ot uniformed
men and women on a busy street cor

by Some were attracted only to laugh
Or to wonder If to sing and pray was all
that occupied the time ot the participants
of the strange little gathering But a
few were attracted to listen to the sing
ing of a simple hymn and among th
rew who drew near was a young man
The hymn reminded him ot better das
of the environment or a good home the
bright prospects of his earlier youth He
did not join the little band on the cor
