THE BIBLE’S WORTH
What Modern Criticism Says 01
the Good Book.
How it Should Be Read and Stud
leduA Book Worthy of the
Closest Study-
“The Worth of the Bible in the light of
modern criticism,” was the subject of Rev.
Napoleon Hoagland’s sermon at the Uni- 1
tarian services at Tacoma hall. He called \
attention to the fact that many people re
gard what is called the higher criticism as
calculated to give the death blow. This
notion is held by two widely different
classes of people, namely, the ultra-ortho
dox and the ultra-liberals. Of course, each
class views the supposed tendency of criti
cism with different emotions—the one With
satisfaction, the other with alarm. The
two theories of _the Bible, roughly repre
sented by the two classes named, are that
the Bible is either apack of lies and old
wives’ fables all through, or else that every
word in it is God's truth. The one atti
tude shows the lack of good horse-sense
about as much as the other. A horse let
loose in a pasture does not pretend that
the picking is egually good all over. He
does not reten that the weeds are just as
good as the grass, though he finds them
mixed up with the grass and the good man
turned him in there to eat. Nor does he
allow the weeds to cheat him out of the
grass that is there. Both find the grass
even among the weeds and accepts it grace
fully and grows fat. ‘
THE HIGHER CBrrrchM
teaches people to exercise horse-sense in
regard to the Bible. The two classes which
regard the Bible as either all good or none
good, all true or none true, though occupy
ing positions of extreme polarity, are
closely related in character.
The bigoted disbeliever in the Bible is,
in nine cases cut of ten, the same person
who once was the bigoted believer in it.
He is probably just as dogmatic in his dis
belief as he was in his belief, just as intol
erant towards people who ditt'er from him,
just as rejudiced and just as conceited as
he was before. He has merely changed his
position, not his character.
, People have been told. so often from the
pulpit and elsewhere that ‘all of the Bible
must be accepted or none, that thousands
have taken these teachers at their word,
and since they were unable to accept all of
it, they accept none. So it turns out that
the really “destructive criticism“ is not
criticism at all, but the blind dogmatic as-*
sumption that ever word in the Bible is
the Word of God and, is of absolute author
ity. The “higher criticism" means that
the Bible is to be read and studied
LIKE ANY OTHER BOOK.
It means that the rules of literary criti
cism that apply elsewhere are to he used
in the stu y of the Bible. Criticism is
simply a process of seeing things as they
are, and surely no friend of the Bible
ought to object that it should be looked at
in the best light obtainable. The “higher
criticism” is not a study of what the creed
makers or theologians say about the Bible,
it is a study of the Bible itselfin the light
of its own history and and by well estab
lished rules of literary study. The speaker
said he knew of no student of lieratnre of
established reputation who has named any
other book as superior to the Bible as a
whole. Many of the leading liberal think
ers of modern times have spoken of the
Bible as a book worthy of the closest
study, not because it is the Word of God,
but because its words through the words
of men are the words of genius and power,
the words of men who wrote ”better than
they knew,” because a Divine Wisdom ut
tered itself» through them. Prof. Huxley
and Matthew Arnold have recommended
the Bible as a text-book of eloquence and
literature in the English schools.
Just think what the Bible is! The auto
biography of a nation’s life for fifteen hun
dred years. And that nation the Hebrews.
a nation whose genius was religion and
whose passion was morality. Their prose
is poetry and their everyday business
rules have passed into moral roverbs.
Their fiction is philosophy and tlieir hil
tory reads like a drama. Their love songs
have been mistaken for religious poems
and the warnings of her statesmen have
been read as tar-reaching pro hecy, and
their descrigtion of a restored fires have
been thoug tto tell what heaven is like.
Some of the songs of their temple service
are still used to voice the deep feelings of
the heart before ‘
THE THOUGHT or con,
even in the most enlightened communions.
What a real and inspiring revelation the
Bible is when we 100 atas a record of the
historic growth of a lofty-minded eople in
their age-long struggle towards (god and
human duty. Rising from the barbaric
thought of God, which represented him as
delighting in the smell of flowing blood
and the odor of roasting flesh, Isaiah’s
word and Micah’s, uttered on nobler
heights of clearer vision, declare that the
blood of goats and burnt ofl'erings are an
abomination. The cruel, heartless God of
Deuteronomy assumes a more paternal
kindness in some of the Psalms, until
finally the thought blossoms .in the heart -
ofJesus and He teaches us to say: "Our
Father which art in heaven I”
Interesting to Doctors.
The name of the newest anaesthetic is
Pental. Its inventor is Prof. Von Mering.
director of the Medical Policlinic in Haile.
He observed fouryears ago that tertiary‘
am l—alcohol produces a soporific effect, i
anti 7 since then it has been in use as a
hypnotic. It occurred to him that the
aniyl correspondin§l to amyloalcohol miiht
be fitted for anaest etic purposes, and t is
substance has now, after several vain at
tempts, been obtained. Its chemical com
position is (CH3) 2 OCH CH3, and Mering
calls it Pental, owing to the circumstance
that it contains five carbon atoms. It is
very volatile and easily combustible. It
can be administered exactly like chloro
form, and the quantity required, each time
costs about sixpence. Anaesthesia sets in
after three or four minutes, rarely later. It
is not deep, but suflices to render small og
erations, such as the extraction of teet ,
painless. It is neither accompanied nor
followed by any unpleasant effect.
