Sampson, intentionally or otherwise,
managed to keep out of the
nnval battle in which Schley annihilated
Ccrvera's fleet, and thereby
ran no risk of losing his bacon,
but since then, like Sampson of
Phillistine notoriety, has worked
his jaw to perfection.
Commenting editorially upon
the necessity of the Legislature, at
its next session, taking action in the
matter of the erection of a home
for indigent Confederate veterans,
the Rock llill Journal of Wednesday
says: "Other Southern States
have made provision to take care
of these noble old heroes and South
Carolina must not be behind." In
a country where cotton sells forT1.cents
per pound most people consider
themselves fortunate to have
one home.
"The most outrageous of all
'Southern outrages' has been committed,"
says an exchange. "From
somewhere in 'the sparsely settled
ex-Confederate section' there has
come to President Roosevelt a fat
'possum labeled 'Booker Washing
ton.' Evidently the white people
of the States lately in rebellion are
hatching a period of re-Reconstruction."
A deplorablo oversight
was the failure to send along
with that 'possum a bng of sweet
'tatqos of the McLaurin variety.
An exchange wonders why such
a comparatively small number of
persons attend church. Put your
enr to the ground and keep an eye
open, brother, and you will learn
that one reason why so many people
show no interest in church
work nowadnys lies in the fact that
too many pulpits are filled by men
who do not enjoy the confidence of
the public. It may be true, in accordance
with the old saying, that
it takes a thief to catch a thief, but
it isn't generally understood that
it takes a two-fnced minister to
make the word of God interesting
to the average sinner.

The Home of Satan is Not Hell and HI3
Appearance is Net Repulsive, but is That
of an Angel of Light.
Chariot to Observer, 3rd.
What is the greatest hindrance to
i the triumph of Christianity ?
It is not tli9 barrooms; nor the dance '
! hall; nor the gambling saloon; nor any ;
of those lesser evils which some saintly j
souls delight to denounce.
It is the neglect of the Biblo, tho failure
to regard the Word of God as tho
only sword of the Holy Spirit, the adulteration
of Scripture truth with the
notions of men. Both the Church and
the clergy are prone to teach t he tra-I
| ditions of tho elders, or the telics of
Paganism and Popery, or tho half
I trut hs of their own denominations, sis
eternal verities, and as the voice of God.
As an example of such erroneous ant
I injurious teaching, see the commoi
I idea of pulpit and pew in regard u
If you ask, "Where is Satan's home,
and what is his personal upi>earanoo?"
| at least nine out of ten Will reply, "llis
home is in hell, and he is dark and re
|iui^nu in jus jniiMiuiii uppcarilllCO.
Yet the Bible teaches that bath of these
answers are untrue.
1. Hell is not now the home of Satan.
Yea more; it never has been; and the
llihle asserts that more than one thousand
years must yet pass by before
Satan's foot can cross the threshold of
hell. To deny this is to deny tin; testii
inony of the llolv Ghost as repeatedly
| given in God's Worth
Six times since Adam's day, in tlio
I (lid Testament is Satan seen. Where
j is he found and in whose company?
In the third chapter of Genesis he is
I seen in Eden, the Garden of God; ami in
I company with Eve, a pure and holy
I woman.
In the 22nd eliaptor of 1 Kings ho is
i seen in heaven, in company withangels
and is permitted bv the Lord todoseeud
| to earth on a message of deceit.
In tin* 21st chapter of 1 Chronicles he
1 is seen in the holy city of Jerusalem,
and in company with David, the kingly
representative of (lod on earth.
In the first- and second chapters of
Job he is twice seen in heaven, and both
j times with the holy angels, and also
j conversing with God.
In the third chapter of Zccliariah lie
i is again seen in the presence of Jeho|
vali, and there to resist that One who is
I the priestly representative of God for
i man.
Not one iota of the Old Testament
has the slightest intimation that Satan
has yet ever been even in the neighborhood
of hell. Precisely the opjiosito is
true, for lie is always seen either in
heaven or on the earth.
Does the New Testament give the
slightest hint that Satan has yet over
been one moment in hell?
In the third chapter of Matthew ho
i is seen with Jesus Christ in three places;
| in the wilderness, on a mountain and
j on the temple in Jerusalem. Next be
is seen near Christ and with Peter, the j
I leader of the apostles. Next lie is near.
or in, the room whore Christ and His
disciples are celebrating 'll? Passover,
find he is dealing with Judas, the treasurer
and only uflicial of tho chosen
twelve. Next ho is seen iu a great revival,
where Ananias was prominent.
Then time and again was lie with Paul,
so that iu 1 Thessalonians 2:18 it. is
written, "Wherefore we would have
come auto you, even I, Paul, ouco and
again; but Satan hindered us."
Neither in the Old Testament, nor in
the New Testament is there one jot or
title of evidence to prove that Satan
has as yet ever seen a single gleam of
the lurid tires of hell, or even smelt one
particle of the smoke thereof. To say
that lieli has been, or is now, his home,
is to discount and deny the testimony of
the Holy Ghost.
2. How does Satan appear? Is it with |
a human form and a dark face, wreath- !
ee with sardonic smiles? Is it with >
scale-like flesh, with bat-like wings, i
with sharp horns and cloven feet and!
forked tail? Such is his api?eurunco as
constantly told in prose and poetry and
picture. Our children aro shown such
pictures in tho nursery, and our yout h
read them in the thrilling words of
Dante, Milton and John Huuyan. Doing
thus trained up in the way they
i should not go, when they are old they
I o., i.ru- ,i.f....... ;?
Hut how differently d<x>s God's Word j
siH?ak. The Holy Ghost, through Paul,
testifies that lu? apjx-ars a.s "an angel of
light;" and by Kzekiel that ho is "porfeot
in bounty." Ho is callod "tho
anointed eh -rub"?not an ordinary
ungol, but one oxaltod above his follows,
I being anointed like kings and priests.
, His moral character is hideous for ho
18 ft liar and murderer; but his mental
| jxnvor is immense, and his jtorsonal apI
pearance is attractive and magnetic.
Thus the ideas current among us con1
corning Satan came not from the Bible.
! They came originally from Paganism;
' from that Paganism which prevailed in
J Babylon, tho city built by Niuirod, tho
| son of Cnsh, and the grandson of Ham.
; As ho seems to have journeyed eastward
! to reach Babylon, he may havo carried
j this idea of a "black devil" (this Zerno*
| bogus as ho was called) with him from
j Africa. At any rate the dark hue of
i Gushite is 011 it, and the fetid odor of
! the negro is in it.
Ix?t us accept tho testimony of thoBiblo
on this subject, and realize who
Satan is; whence ho came; what is his
mission; where ho dwells; and whither
iiu win :ii liisr go. moil will we begin
clearly to behold the glory of his grout
conqueror and final judge, .Tonus
Christ. For as tho shadows in a pic!
turo bring out more clearly and fully
the lights thereof, and thus render that i
picture more perfect; so tho real character,
history and doom of Satan will
reveal more clearly and fully tho dij
vine radiance of our King and prove tho
! infinite and eternal greatness of His
salvation. J. B. MACK.
