Gen. Nash has always been a

say that he lived somewhat in

drafted and introduced by him
Gen. Nash has always been in
sympathy with the farmers re
cognizing that the happiness and
prosperity of a country depend

We need such wholesome laws

Gospel, in our Com

verses are not to
ToR , RCSSEt&I be found In any of
the oldest Greek
MSS. and were evidently added to the
Word of God in the Seventh Century
or later. Moreover, we gave proofs
of the untruthfulness of this addition.
Is it true that whoever believes the
Gospel of Christ may handle serpents
with impunity and may drink deadly
poison without harm? Surely not. It
is nothing short of a sin for those who
know better to acknowledge these
verses and to use them to bolster up
theories of Divine Healing. It is as
much a crime to add to the Word of
God as to take away from it.
Today I invite attention to some otb
er “dead flies,” some other additions to
God’s Word, which have had much to
do with twisting the theology once de
livered to the- saints. Take, for in
stance, the closing words of the Lord’s
“Thine is the Kingdom and Power and
These words, if uttered by our Lord,
should be found in the old Greek MSS.
But they are not found therein.
They are, therefore, to be rejected
as additions made by people centuries
after Matthew’s Gospel was written
These words were introduced when the
faith of the Church respecting the
Kingdom of Messiah was changed or
changing from what it was originally.
All through the New Testament the
second coming of Christ In power and
glory to establish His Kingdom and to
glorify the Church, His Bride, is set
for the end of this Gospel Age. But
as the time grew long a change of sen
timent came into the Church. It be
came popular and rich. Its bishops
were respected. Finally the theory
prevailed that God did not intend to
delay the establishment of the King
dom until the second coming of Christ,
but did intend to establish it In the
hands of the Church during this Age
and to use the Church for the con
quering of the world and the fulfilling
of all the promises of the past
In line with this the most prominent
bishop of the time was recognized as
Divinely appointed to represent Christ
In the world and to reign over the na
tions in his stead and to bring about
the Messianic reign, etc. This was the
Bishop of Rome, who subsequently
was styled the Pope and who claimed
and was accorded the honorable title,
“ Vice-gerent of the Son of Qod .” It is
said that the equivalent of this title
is worn to this day by the Pope on his
tiara, or three-crowned hat— Vicarius
“Thy Kingdom Como on Earth.”
The Lord’s prayer was already in the
Scriptures, and was known to many.
It could not be eliminated! But some
zealous person, fully believing that
God’s Kingdom had come, felt justified
in amending the prayer to correspond
to what he were the facts.
the prayer which begins, “Thy
Kingdom come,” is made to end by
saying, “Thy Kingdom has come in its
glory and power.”
How glad w© are to see the Truth on
this subject; that the Kingdom of
God’s dear Son has not yet been set up
in any sense of the word —that It is still
future. It cannot be set up until this
Gospel Age ends and the ‘'elect” saint
ly few of every nation, Jew and Gen
tile, shall be changed from earthly to
heavenly nature by the First Resurrec
tion, which will qualify them to be
kings and priests unto Qod and unto
Christ and to reign with Him a thou
sand years (Revelation xx, 5).
It is well that all Bible students
should mark this “fly” and extract it
from the precious Ointment and notice
how much sweeter and fresher the
Lord’s prayer Is to them forever.
