NEW YORK, Sept 27.—SHALL THE TEN COMMANDMENTS BR BOILED
Shall the words of God, which were written on tables of stone when the great prophet
Moses was living, thousands of years ago*--anl which have guided man through all ages—
NOW be made to conform with "modern" ideas?
For THIS is exactly wliat faces tlie religious people of America today 1
In St. Louis, next month, the convention of the Protectant Episcopal church is going to
consider a pfopoul to REVISE the commandment! 1
And, from present reports, it is likely that the propped will carry, despite the opposi
tion already encountered in many quarters to what is being termed by many as "a sacrileg
But the Episcopalian clergy view this nutter of boiling down God'l ten commandments
in a very different, in fact in a very matter-of-fact, light!
Rev, Herbert M. Denslow, rector of noteifd professor of pastoral theology at the Gen
eral Theological seminary, presents these as the generally accepted arguments rOR the "re
"Tlie plan is," he says, "to shorten tbe farm of the ten commandments as used in the
Episcopal church service. It should be'remeiw.ered that tbe commandments themselves ap
pear in different forms in the scriptures.
"Those 'who advocate this change believe that the ten commandments *wffl gain in
EMPHASIS, if shortened. They say thai BRFA'ITY constitutes the chief strength of
most precepts. And so many have dcclarel that God's ten commandments would be
more powerful if recited in the form of simple commands 'with the REASONS eliminated.
"A vote at tbe coming convention to adopt this change will be only a vote of recommenda
tion, however. Tbe project then must hold over three years, and not be acted upon perma
nently until the following convention three years hence. So there will be a great deal of dis
cussion before any real change in tbe form of tlie ten commandments is actually possible."
