SAVED BY FAITH,
NOT BY WORKS Stll We Must Work Out Oiir Own Salvation. PASTOR RUSSELL IN LONDON. Mankind Will Be Red??m?d Through J ??us* Death and by Qodra Benign ? Influanoa and Infinite Mtroy Work ing In Tham Through the Inspiring Promiaaa of the Holy 8oripturee. With tha Bibla as a Quida Wa Can not Qo Wrong In Obeying the Divine Commands. London, Eng., August 4.? London Tabernacle was! crowded both morn- j in g and evening: to hear Pastor Bus- j selL. We report his evening discourse from the text, "Not of works, lest any man should boast; for we ars - His workmanship, .cre ated In Christ Jesus ; unto good works, | wuicii vjkxi nam oerore oraainea tnat we should walk In them." (Bph. 11, 9,10.) Ever since Brother Luther's day and his vigorous preaching of justification by faith Christian believers have been more or less perplexed in their en deavors to harmonize the Scriptural declaration respecting faith and works as related to salvation. Pastor Rus sell believes that In the clearer light God is shedding upon thq pathway of His people today through the Bible they are enabled to comprehend with absolute clearness matters once foggy. This, he claimed, does not signify that our forefathers were less loyal to God, nor less logical In the operation of their minds. It does, however, agree with the Scriptural declaration that we are living in the timer when the wise of God's people are to understand the Message previously more or less hidden, but now. In due time, to be revealed.? Revelation x, 7. The logical thought which appeals most strongly to every mind is that good works must be the basis of Divine favor and bad works the basis of dis favor. This led up to the child-sum mary of preaching, namely, "JJe good and go to heaven; be bad and go to ." Our Catholic friends, said the Pastor, carry the matter of good works to such/an extent that they claim that some have laid up such surplus of good works and Divine favor therefor that they are able to appropriate some of these to others; hence the claim that they may be appealed to in prayer and may give of their merit to others as a bounty or donation. The Scriptural proposition is plain: it is that no man is perfect, that all through the fall are Impaired In mind and body, so that none can do perfect works. Their very best works would be unacceptable to God? Imperfect. In stead of Ignoring their imperfections God provided a Redeemer, whose obe dience unto death He accepts as a sac rifice for tbe sins of Adam and his race. Evidently all imperfections of word or act resulting from that diso bedience und fall will be completely forgiven. The race will be reconciled to God- Divine blessings will come to humanity and the earth, Instead of the cun?e now resting upon them. The ef fect will be to give all mankind the fullest opportunity for rising up out of 3ln and degradation, Imperfection, sor row, death, alienation from God, ig norance, superstition, etc., back to the ? full perfection that Father Adam pos- ' sessed at first , But in order to regain all those bless ings lost each member of the race will be required to appreciate the privileges of life eternal and Divine favor and will be obliged also to show his ap preciation by striving against sin and co-operating with the Savior in the up lifting arrangements which will pre vail for a thousand years, during the Messianic Kingdom. Present Afl? 8alvatior? by FaitH. It to In the present Age only that salvation la to be by faith and not by works. True, the world In the next Age will not be faithless while making their progress In good works and being Judged according to their works. They will be fall of faith, but there will be abundant basis for faith. Knowledge will make their pathway clear as day. Demonstration will prove to them such things as God's people in the present time must accept by faith? "For we walk by faith and not by sight." This Gospel Age, from the time of Jesus*' first advent until the second advent, Is the Age of Faith In con trast with .the unsuccessful Age of Works preceding and the to-be success ful Age of works to follow. The Pas tor showed that during the I>ew Age, from Moses to Jesus, the requirement was works: "lie that doeth these things shall live by them." (I>evitlcus xvlii, 5; Romans x, 5.) Israel's failure was because of Inability to do things perfectly ? the things contained In the I*aw given to them at Mt. Sinai. The New Law Covenant which will be Inaugurated by Messiah's Kingdom, will be on exactly the same lines as the old one, namely, works: "He that do eth these things shall live by them." The difference will be that Christ Him self will be the Mediator of the New Law Covenant, both able and willing ' ? to render all necessary assistance to all who will come back Into harmony with the Father by Him. Qti the other hand, Moees, the mediator of the old Law Covenant, while eyer willing to help his. people, was not able to do so, be cause his mediation was based upon only typical sacrifices of bolls and goats snd not upon the real sacrifice of Christ, which alone is able to make full satisfaction for sin. *We Walk by Fsith and Not by Sight." The Apostle was here discussing the terms and conditions by which Qod is willing to accept the Church class of this Gospel Age. These, in the Scrip lures, are called the Elect or select ones of the race. Qod is calling and drawing these out of the world for a special purpose and under special con ditions, one of which is that only such as have great faith can belong to the select class. There are some so born, under the fallen conditions, that they have great difficulty In experiencing faith, even a little, and only after a thorough train ing could they exercise great faith, by experiencing that transformation of ' the mind of whlclf St. Paul tells us. | (Romans xll, . 2.) These are not to be blamed for haying been born under less favorable conditions than some others. And so God has made pro vision for all such to come to a knowl edge of the Truth and not merely to a faith In It, that tbey may be saved. There are others more favorably born, so far as their mental make-up is concerned, who have been unfa vorably born as respects environment and place. Born in heathen lands, I where they heard nothing of the Mes sage of Godis grace, or where they heard it under such unfavorable cir cumstances that they could not appre ciate it, these must Indeed lose the spe cial .favors of this Age, which go only to those who do exercise faith; but they are not forgotten nor left out of the Divine Plan, but will share In the general blessings coming to the world through the Redeemer's Kingdom. "Work Out Your Salvation/* The favored class who hear the Mes sage of Divine favor, speaking peace through the sacrifice of Christ, assur ing them of the Heavenly Father's willingness to forgive their sins and receive them as members of the Body of Christ, are obliged to receive this Message by faith. What is there to prove that Jesus died and rose again? This must be received by faith. Wh^t is there to prove that the sacrifice which Jesus made met with Divine ap proval and that as a consequence all that come unto the Father through Him as their Advocate will be accepted? There Is no proof except to the eye of faith and ear or faith. To the natural man these things are imagination, and those who fully and completely trust in them are accused of being rathev weak minded. This step of consecration through the merit of Jesus brings them into such relationship with the Heavenly Fa ther that He is willing to accept them and give them the Holy Spirit of adoption into His Family. Up to this point they have done nothing ? mere ly believed ? merely accepted God's gifts, favors, invitation, etc. Here our text applies. "Not of works, lest any , man should boast." j Every Christian takes these same ' steps of faith and consecration, or he is not a Christian. There are no other steps to take. True, indeed, as we ap proached God we thought to put away some of the filth of the flesh; but such endeavor to wash and free ourselves from sin cannot be counted good works. A good work is one that is done for God or for others. Merely seeking to cleanse our thoughts and words and deeds is not good works in tho Scriptural sense ? but, anyway, none ' has ever been able to purge himself, j to wash himself, to cleanse himself. Our own righteousness is as filthy rags, in which God could not receive us. Wo can come to Him only under the robe of Christ's righteousness, and I it Is given only as a reward of faith i and a consecration of the heart. But while there are no works up to that point, after that point there will be works, else we will never come off conquerors, nor ever gain tho great prize which Jesus likens to a "pearl of great price." We can do no works to justify ourselves, but, after being justified by faith, wo are permitted to do works. Yea, we are required to work out our own salvation. Note the difference, however. It is the old creature, the sinner, that was Justified. When God accepted him a living sacri fice Ihrough faith in Jesus he was be gotten to a new nature and became a New Creature in Christ Jesus ? a spirit being, though without a spirit body. This New Creature not only main tains the faith which brought it into existence, but In it the faith must work. It must grow by exercise? "grow In grace, knowledge and love," grow In all the fruits and graces of the Holy Spirit. Under a figure of be getting and birth tho Apostle repre sents the New Creature as a foetus developing and getting ready for its birth? resurrection. Again, this New Creature is referred to by the Apostle sometimes as a babe, saying, "As new born babes desire the sincere milk of the Word, that ye may grow there by." The milk of the Word repre sents the simplest truths, the simplest elements of Divine instruction, the first principles of the doctrines of Christ Gradually we grow in grace and be come strong in the Lord and able to assimilate the stronger food? able to appreciate the deeper truths. As a child requires the exercise of every muscle In order to become the youth, and as the youth needs exercise In or der to become fully developed, so it is with the New Creature. He must have works in order to his develop ment He must work out the good things which he takes in as milk and strong meat. They most be worked oat la his own mind, in his conduct toward others. In his ministry of spir itual truths to his family, in the Church and before the world. "W? Are God's Workmanship." As we look into the starry sky and learn that it contains approximately a thousand millions of worlds, and per haps many times tbat number, we are amazed at God's workmanship. But still more wonderful is the angelic cre ation with its various orders. Then fining down to earthly life as we know it, we see an infinite variety of sentient creatures. The grandest of all is man, even in bis fallen condi tion. And we are amazed also at the endless variety disputed in other earth ly creations? fruits, flowers, etc. We say to ourselves, How great is our Cre ator, that from His storehouse of Wis dom and of Tower all this infinite Tart, ety should come!' But it Is when we learn of God's work in the Church as a New Creation that we are more than ever amazed. Divine grace, laying bold upon wiiling hearts of fallen men, first Justifies them through the merit of Christ, and not by works, and then begins to work in them for their own development as a New Creation. We might well ask. What are the agencies, what are tbe tools, by which Divine grace operates in this New Creation? The answer of the Bible makes tbe matter all that more wonderful, for it reveals to us that God works in us merely by His promises and through our own mlnria and our own wills. Thus St. Peter declares, God hath given unto us ex ? ceedlng great and precious promises, that by these we might become "par takers of the divine nature."? II Peter i, 4. Christ Has Pro- eminence. This New Creation had its start in. our Redeemer. He who was "the be ginning of the creation of God," in. harmony with the Divine Plan, hum bled Himself, laid aside His heavenly] glory and was made flesh? became the Man Christ Jesus, that He, by the grace1 of God, might redeem the world. It was in conjunction with this redemp tive work, when He fully submitted Himself in baptism at Jordan to do the Father's will, that the Father began to work in Him as a New Creature. When Jesus gave Himself sacrificial ly, when His sacrifice was accepted of the Father, then to Him came the b^ getting of the Holy Spirit as a New.' Creature, to be the "Head of the Church which is His Body." For three and a half years the promises of the Old Testament Scriptures (contained In great measure in types and shadows) ! worked In the Redeemer to will and to do the Father's pleasure. He was found j faithful unto death ? the New Creature growing in grace and Divine favor as He took the various steps even to the cross. When He cried, "It is finished," it signified that the sacrifice of the flesh was finished and that the de-; velopment of tbe New Creature svas complete. Then the work began In respect to His Body, the Church, otherwise called His Bride class. Divine energy hflg since been working in the Church since Pentecost Member aftei* mem ber has been called and justified and sanctified, begotten of the Holy Spirit. In each the work of grace goes on. Each, as our text declares, is God's workmanship, developing in meekness, gentleness, patience, long-suffering, brotherly-kindness, love. All these traits and qualities are being worked out? not in the flesh, but In the heart; In the mind. ] True, the flesh does, indeed, reflect some of the graces of the spirit? but Imperfectly. Gradually the new mind gains control over the mortal body.! Gradually the light of God shines out in words and deeds, through the heart illuminated. It is God working. Created For Good Works. Our text declares that this New Cre ation, Christ and the Church, are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus i unto good works ? that a good work may, be done by and through them. What good work Is this which God designs to accomplish through the Church ? through Christ and His elect Bride? It Is the good work of blessing the non-elect world. It Is the good work which will progress from the time of the second coming of Jesus and the es tablishment of His Kingdom for a thousand years. It is the good work ^vhlch will ultimately uplift or resur rect Adam and all his race from death, ignorance, superstition, sin, if they are willing? up to the full perfection of human nature and Divine favor and everlasting life. All others, unwilling, disobedient, will be destroyed. When the blessed work of the thou sand years of Messiah's reign shall! have cleansed the world of all wilful sin and wilful sinners and shall have lifted up mankind to an earthly Kden and human perfection, that will) not be the end of tho Divine program /for the Church. The Apostle, in a varse pre ceding, tells us that In Ages to come God will show Ills favor toward the Church? not merely in the one Ago in which the Church will be permitted to , share with her Redeemer His glorious Messianic Kingdom. The work beyond the Millennium is not clearly revealed, and yet "day unto day uttereth speech and night unto night showeth knowledge." As the Scriptures declare, God formed notvthe earth in vain, but formed it to be*, in habited, so the same principle, apptted to the stars, tells us that all the thou- , sands of millions of worlds have been created for a purpose, or are In profess es of perfecting for a purpose-not In vain. The human creation on our plan- J et Is merely a hint to ns of what the Divine purpose is respecting all tho*e j millions of worlds. t The Advocate a Paper for the People.

He * managed to get into Morgasi College, * and laid the foundation of his tuc- 1 cessfitf career by teaching school in the Maryland counties, studying as he taught. By frugality and industry he was enabled to save money enough to enter .toe medical department of How ard University, graduating .isi 1894, and earning an appointment as an 'interne in Freedmen's Hospital. His subse quent history is insepe-rably inter woven with the evolution of that -su rtrb institution, as his Tise to the re sponsible positions of assistant and then surgeon-in-chirf will show. Mod est in demeanor, but thorough in his (grasp of details and in the fine points of his profession ; gracious to all men, but forceful in the execution of a giv |en work; firm as an administrator, | but granting a "square dfal" in of Iflce and ou.t of it, Dr. Warfleld has built around him a loyal and compe tent staff of assistants, and he enjoys the confidence, respect and affection of a liost of friends. Bath races are nu merously represented on his staff, but there is no semblance of friction along the color line. Dr. Warfield's immediate corps of as sistants is as follows: Assistant Surgeon, Dr. S. I,. Carson; resident ?physician, Dr. C. A. Brooks; patholo gist, Dr. Walter Van Swearington: anesthetist, Dr. George W_ Davis; P. D. Henry is chief clerk in* the office,] with Miss Arsine Elizabeth Jones as stenographer, a*id \V. E. Cobb as gen eral clerk. The nursfs' staff includes Laura McHale, superintendent; Em ma Mae Irwin, assistant superintend ent; Martha E. Cabaniss, night super visor; Marion V. l^ucas and Bertha J. Turner, head nurses. Tr.n bright young nun are serving as internes; Some distinguished men have pre ceded Dr. Warfield as surgeon-in-oh.lef of Freedmen's Hospital, among them Drs. C. B. Purvis, John R. Francis, Daniel H. Williams and A. M. Curt'is. ['Assistant Secretary of the Treasury j Sherman Allen. Another excellent appointment by President Taft is that of the Hon.' Sherman Allen, of Verm cut, as A*> sistant Secretary of the" Treasury, to succeed Dr. A. Piatt Andrew. Mr. Al len was until recently assistant secre tary to the President at the White House, and his promotion is a fitting recognition of the brilliant success he achieved in that responsible capacity. He is the soul of courtesy, and at the Treasury has already made a fine im pression as a trained man of affairs, who will administer itdie office with due regard for the .interests of the government and the people alike. Be fore entering the federal service, Mr. Allen was the Washington representa tive of the New York Herald, ai\d was one of the most- popular figures in the press gallery in Congress and in news paper Row down-town. That he will add to his laurels in his new station goes -without the saying. He will prove to be a tower of stungth to the administration of President Taft. \ Justice for Mjl ngo- Saunders. At last, there is justice in si&ht for poor old Mingo Saunders! This faithful and upright soldier and patriot, after sufTeiiug; for years lor an offense he did not commit, is within reach of the honors tha: were watched away by the order discharg ing him without honor, along with his comrades of the Black Battalion of t.he 25th at Brownsville. Already President Taft has issued an executive order transferring lii.n from a minor position at the Navy Yard in this city to a messengershfp in the Interior Department at a salrvy of $840 per annum. Representative W. A. Rodettburg, of Illinois, has in troduced a bill in the House provid ing for the reinstatement of Saundets in the Army and permitting his retire ment at once. This will restore him to his status in the army establish ment, entitle him to a neat sum i:i back pay and a eomfoi table stipend for life, in addition to his salary a messenger in the department. Wh->n discharged Sergeant Saunders hod 'served twenty-six years, and after an other year's service, would have be-^r. entitled to retirement at two-*h!?\ls pay and allowances. Before the close of the Congress ioa al session, Mr. Rodenberg announce? i that he will introduce a bill for the ! reinstatement of all of the innocent soldiers discharged for part ieipatfon n the Brownsville riots. I The situation, as far as the NTe? o I s concerned, is "looking up." < . V 1 That Alabama Collectorship. President Taft has appointed Sim r. WYight, of Fayette, as Collector af internal Revenue for the District ( of Alabama, vice J. O. Thompson, dis- ' missed for pernicious political actW- ' i-v- Mr. Wright was supported by regular Republican organization, it Is 1 understood, and the pledge to name liim is said to .have been made beforf the friends of Dr. U. G. Mason, for whom a stiong fight wai made, ha'1, gotten well under way in his behalf. Dr. Mason's high character and fitness vvore conceded by all, and ma.ry '.vhites spoke of him 'in the most la - ditory terms as a man and ejt'z3!! pnd loyal administration worker, but the bugbear known as "Senatorial courtesy" got between Dr. Mason and ?i.c coveted ihonor, and it became an impassable barrier before which his forces were compelled to bow. T'ie uncompromising opposition of '.lie Democratic Senators Johnson au'l Bankhead, would have made his con firmation 'impossible. It does seem that 110 Negro, however competent, can be confirmed now for any position of d'ignity and responsibility in the South, especially, as one or more of the southern senators will "object," rnd the unwritten law of f'courte*?v'' -<:fvis ?o bin'' other Senators to 'ex pect the objections. Tlie Campaign Getting Under AVay. The presidential campaign is rap idly getting under way. The compli cations following the Chicago conven tion are being unraveled, and as soon as the o zat'en i? perfect?'!, managers \\ ' 1 * l* 'in a position *o make some definite announcement. Mr. David S., Barry, an ^experienced newspaper man, is to have charge of the publicity bureau. The. sponsors are of the opinion that the situation is growing brighter for him day by day. The attjitude of the "Bid! Moose" party on the NT:-gro question they say, will br.ing about, a stea !v flow of enthusiasm for the President and the regular organization, whit n has never refused to admit the Ne^ro of any section to its inner counci'.s. Some interesting development? seem to be in prospect. ?Our Corrcvsponclent's Uttle "Before the-Ourtain" Speech. "Stepping out of the part for a mo ment"? as they say in t.ne vernacular of the. stage ? your correspondent begs the privilege of making a personal statement for the benefit of those whofrf it may concern. A net total of three persons se'-m considerably worked up over our ac tivities, one way and auobher, and evince a deep and constant solicitude for our future welfare. They express! the fear that we are not getting along, as well as we should, and are appre hensive that something dreadful is go ing to happen to us, if we do not watch a "leetle bit oud." They do ( nol tell us this to our face. A quiet j warning, wih'Jspered in priva'e, does uot answer t lie purpose. They must ' tell i. .in the public prints, that all may know the full measure of the tender regard they feel.. Going even J further, they throw out dark hint' that authorities "higher up" will be asked to persuade us :o seek the 'isle of safety " and, if necessary to woo us into t'.:e paths of oblivion, the "stuffed club"' of official di-appvov^l will be invoked. Without inquiring the reason for this tremendous display of zeal for our well-being, we are not larking iM ap preciation for these repeated evidences of disinterested friendship. We may not deserve the many good things that these folks are saying of us, but shall not tisk a newspaper controversy by contradicting any of them. The mass es do no! care a rap about what a trio of 'individuals thhik of us, nor what we think of them. The people want the news, "hot off the .handle" ? j?st as we are giving it to them. They think we know our business, and un founded forebodings and pessimistic jjred'etions have no place in their wholesome philosophy. We are sim ply a "chronicler of the ;imes." tell ing what is go'l'.ig on. day by day, keeping ever within the law. as voiced in the statutes and in the code of ethics. Therefore, we shall go on in the even tenor of our way, acknowledging gracefully the plaudits of frknds, un deterred by the gibes of enemies and unmoved by the threats of grafters, crooks, blackmailers or marplots.

(liicago S**iwls Biggest and Pettiest Delegation to Hampton and the Capital. Chicago has the honor of sending the biggest and prettiest delegation to the session of the National Association of Colored Women which met at Hampton Institute last week. The party that left the "Windy City" filled two special Pullmans and numbered forty-nine, and a goodly company of them stopped over at the capital to view the many points of interest. Prominent among this galaxy of fair women were Mrs. Elizabeth L'indsay Davis, w.'io was unanimously re-elected national organizer of the Association, and who made a report a: the session 4 hat took the body off its feet; Mrs. Ophie Brown Wells, a musician of na tional note, who was chosen as pianist for the entire convention, acquitting herself admirably; Mts. R. B. Mont gomery, of Milwaukee, associate editor of the Wisconsin Weekly Advocate, a newspaper woman of marked ability; and others who had gone on before the eagle eye of your correspondent could recover from the dazzling effect of their presence. The ladies were o'.iap eroned in attentive fashion by Mrs. Carrie E.
