SLAVES SET FREE
RETURN TO BONDS
Stil! Greater Freedom With King
ly Honors Thereby Secured.
Pastor Russell's Discourse the Third
and Last of a Series Upon the Texts
Which Embellish the Famous Union
Station of Washington City.
C.. January 19.—
preached at Wash
ington Temple to
day his third ser
mon on our Un
ion Depot text*
Today's text was:
"The Truth shall
make you free."
(John 8:32.) He
Truth is the
tor. All enslavers oppose the Truth,
knowing its power on the minds of
their victims. The taskmasters of to
day would fain hide the truth from
wage-slaves, but find it impossible-so
great is the power of the press—and
there are publishers who have not sold
their moral sense for sordid gain.
When chattel slavery prevailed, the
master found it advantageous to edu
cate his slaves and thus increase their
value, but disadvantageous to instruct
them along the lines of human rights.
The feudatory lords were very willing
that the common people consider them
demigods, not subject to law as others.
The same principle apparently
prompted the emperors to proclaim
themselves, "pontifex maximus" and to
encourage their people to worship
them. The natural selfishness of man
ever prompts him to take advantage
of others; and ignorance has been the
chain which has bound the masses.
The Bible has been the great Eman
cipator of slaves—mental, moral and
physical. It is the Torch of Liberty,
lighted by Divine Providence. The
Bible alone tells us that all humanity
are of one blood, creatures of the same
God. amenable to Him. While the Bi
ble instructs that kings and all in au
thority should be recognized, it also
tells that the king is amenable to ex
actly the same taws as his most menial
slave, and that if he violates these
laws he is as sure to be punished.
Moreover, the Bible points out that
the present is related to the future life
as cause to effect. It shows that every
act. word and thought bears upon
character-development, and prepares us
for higher things in the life to come or
gives us more difficulty in reaching per
fection and everlasting life.
"Hope Thou In God."
Looking into the past, we see Israel,
sodden with fear of their Egyptian
taskmasters, not daring to take steps
for liberty. But after the Exodus, after
God's Covenant with them at Sinai,
they were a changed people. The hopes
inspired by the Scriptures preserved
them as a nation when contemporane
ous cirilization perished.
The Jews undoubtedly destroyed
their own nationality. The Romans
merely performed the funeral rites in
destroying Jerusalem, A. D. 70. The
Emperor evidently claimed that the
Jewish religion must necessarily be at
the foundation of their ungovernable
character. Their liberty, used contrary
to Divine instruction, led to discontent
Christ's Followers Set Free.
The Message of Jesus and the Apos
tles attracted some "Israelites indeed,"
anxious to serve God. The early
Christians courageously suffered perse
cution and carried the Gospel every
where. The Roman emperors. Nero
and' Diocletian, perceived that Chris
tians had a courage which they feared
would be infectious, and persecuted
them horribly. But the Master had
freed them from fear of death.
Then came a long period of darkness,
when the Scriptures were forgotten,
and only the words of bishops were
heard—words misunderstood to be of
Divine authority through Apostolic Suc
cession. Next came centuries under
control of creeds and church councils.
Darkness, ignorance and superstition
prevailed, although God had His wit
nesses throughout that long period.
Finally the Bible again emerged, when
printing came into use. God's time
had come tor the Bible again to be the
Torch of Liberty, and Independence
proportionately came forward. Today
Britain. Germany, Scandinavia and
America lead the world, because of the
light from the Word of God.
■ Danger Now, as to the Jews.
The danger that the Jews encoun
tered in the end of their Age confronts
us. Not all receive the Truth in the
love of It Not all, therefore, are sanc
tified by It Pew have turned to the
Lord, to become followers of Jesus.
Hence we are on the threshold of a
great disintegration. Liberty is about
to turn to license—anarchy; our civili
zation is about to be ruined, as was the
Jewish polity, by liberty unrestrained
by the Spirit of the Lord.
St. Paul declared that the Gospel had
set him free from all other bondages;
but that he surrendered his liberty to
Christ to do, not his own will, but the
will of his Redeemer. Forcefully be
states that in so doing he became a
bond-slave to Christ.
Blessed is the condition of those who
gladly surrender all to become follow
ers of the Lord! Such can rejoice, be
cause they know that all things work
together for their good, to prepare them
for the Heavenly glories.
