First Presbyteria nchurch, delivered a
i very interesting and instructive missionary
: sermon yesterday morning. He spoke of
the \nrious religions extant ill the world
and stated that there wag some good in
He said: "It is not the proper thing
1 to condemn th c so-called heathen faiths as
i completely bad. The attitude of Christian
nations toward non-Christian people and
religions is increasingly thai of sympathy
! and appreciation. There is much common
ground in all religions. There are noble
teachings in the non-Christian faiths. To
, classify Christianity with Confucianism or
Buddhism is to be utterly trivial in one's
'"Hie former opposition to missions can
no longer be maintained on reasonable
or intelligent grounds. Until recently
it has been common for those opposed to
missions to dec!,ue that the religions of
the various nations are as sacred to them
as ours is to us and that il is a violation
of all honor or justice or right to in
terfere with the faiths of other people.
It has been urged thai their sincerity even
in error is as good t,o (hem ;is truth. Such
■hallow sentimentality has little weight
with any but shallow minds and super
ficial religious faith."
The speaker closed with iin earnest ap
peal for ii more aggressive missionary spir

church's faith in Christianity as suited to
all men, of the professing Christian's
for those whom Christ came to save, and
of the believer's obedience to the -Mas
