DIVINE SERVICES SUNDRY (Concluded from Fifth Page.) things and death Itself. So unwilling? ly, as in tlie case ot St. Paul, Holy men i?f old spake as they were moved by the Holy Qhost, and all Scripture la Bhcn by Inspiration of God. All the writers of that book agree singularly; nil philosophers do not agree; hardly any two can agree; no two scientist*! can agree exactly, and yet nil these writers agree as well in the iucompr- - hensible two-fold nature, of Christ as In the simpler recital of the minute In cldents of His lifo and work before them. While Parliaments, Senates and !.? ? Matures have never formed their highest work In the enactments and amendments of laws, we have In t- n Bhort principles thai any child can re? member nnd understand all the re? quirements that spring from all the conditions, circumstances and relations of Ufr?, and of which no repeal or amendment Is ever needed. By inspl-I ration the past,'the present nnd future; are all made plain: the Issues of life and death, of rewards and punishments ; are opened ns with authority, while the natural hearl of man la exposed and rebuked by the spirit of Christ; Is np tagohlzed so radically as to require man to ho born again. Surely such ; teaching never cmcnated from any im-> man source, for -'is soon might t ii<- ? stream rise higher than Its highest sprinj :. The Scriptures command obe ilit :i e and establish tlndr claim upon the foundation of Immoveablc truth. Which can never be shaken; that all : Scripture was given of Inspiration of God, AT. ST. LUKE'S i'. 13. CHURCH.
