In the World’s Largest and Finest Au ditorium Audience Estimated at Seven Thousand —Which Is the True Gospel and What Must Our Creeds Sacrifice In Order to Christian Union? London, April 2 —P ast o r Russell : . addressed the hu^e m :• “A Convention at Roy al Albert Hall to night. Few preach ers are bo well known In Great m Mfesb Britain as be Many of the lead ing newspapers. *"* both here and in America, publish his weekly dis courses. He took for his text, ‘7 crm not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ" (Romans i, 16). He said:— Let us approach our subject rever ently! With reverence, because many of our creeds are white with centuries They were the creeds of our fathers and mothers. They must not be ban died ruthlessly, unkindly. But we must approach the subject with cour age because it is a Christian duty. For long centuries God’s people have been divided iuto sects and parties, separat ed by creedal fences. At one time they gloried in their differences, and destroyed one another in their zeal for what they believed to be the Truth. Now we see more clearly that none of our creeds are without flaw. Now we are willing, yea, glad, to take the Truth wherever we find It and to ac knowledge the error, though it be our own. The oneness of the Church re quires that we should have this cour age! The interests of the world de mand it! We have come here realiz ing that the time for covering errors, of which we are ashamed, Is past; that the time for reverencing God and His Word has come. Are We Not All Christians? Our topic must be, What Is the Gos pel of which St. Paul was not ashamed —“the faith once delivered unto the saints”—“one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism” (Ephesians iv, 5). The speaker showed that the Roman Catholic Church, in order to unite with others, would need to cut out of her creed everything not found in the Bi ble — to saints, homage to pic tures and images, the sacrifice of the mass, holy candles, holy water, Pur gatory, the infallibility of the Pope and the general theory that the clergy alone are the Church and brethren of Christ, and the laity the children of the Church. * The Protestant Episcopal creed next had attention. Little that was objection able was found therein. One point alone could cause any hesitancy, he was sure —Apostolic Succession. He urged that no Scripture could be found sustaining this theory in clear terms. On the contrary, he gave numerous citations In proof that the twelve Apostles only possessed plenary inspiration and were directly under Divine control—St. Paul taking the place of Judas. Election Foreordi nation —Predestina- tion. The Westminster Confession, the foundation of the majority of Protes tant creeds, distinctly emphasizes the teachings of Brother Calvin. We can all agree that the words elect and election, predestinated and foreordain ed, are Scriptural terms, and that a truth must underlie and pervade them. But it will give none of us any pain to repudiate entirely the peculiar defi nitions attached to these words by Brother Calvin. Surely we > are all prepared to deny that a God of Jus tice, Wisdom, Love and Power fore ordained and predestinated from be fore the foundation of the world that everybody but the “elect” should go to eternal torment Baptists and Disciples, Pastor Rus sell declared, have something further to surrender. Surely they may keep water Immersion. Surely they may claim that, more fully than sprinkling, it represents the underlying thought expressed In the symbol. But the un reasonable and unscriptural thing which they must renounce In favor of union Is that water immersion Is a test of membership in the Church of Christ. They must admit that Corne lius, at least, was accepted of the Lord and begotten of the Holy Spirit before his baptism In water (Acts x, 47). Baptists and Disciples should see the_abaurdlty of claiming that OBIE. the water immersed are members of the Church of Christ, for thus, accord ing to their theory, they would be dooming to eternal torture as unsaved all of their Christian brethren who had not been Immersed. Surely Bap tists and Disciples, therefore, may be expected to promptly and heartily re pudiate these test features of their theories. The Methodist Creed was next ex amined. It was commended for the prominence it the*. Love of God andvHSls forbearance with the misrepresentations of those who hon estly seek to be His children. The speaker asked the Methodist brethren to forego the worship of their Church and to give the more homage to the Lord. He admitted the masterfulness of their organization, but reminded them that their Episcopacy Is not modeled after anything shown us in fhe New Testament. It does not even pretend to be any authority along the lines of Apostolic Succession. It must admit that the establishment of its Bishopric was, at least, seml-fraudu lent—a supposed emergency, born of error that an Episcopal ordination was necessary to authority to preach. We were very glad to receive a pleasant visit from our young friend, Ashley, of Kosciusko, who came up to hear the White Chief Saturday, He is connect ed with the Kosciusko Herald, one of ihe very best newspapers within the State, Attacks .School Principal. A severe attack on school principal, Chas. B, Allen, of Sylvania, Ga., is thus told by him. “For more than three years,’’ he writes, I suffered indescrible torture from rheumatism, liver and stomach trouble and diseased kidneys. All remadies failed till I used Electric Bitters, but four bottles of this wonder ful remedy cured cured mo completely.’’ Such results are common.
