Hmlonr (The Post) is the Gospel of Buddha. written in the pur est Biblical Hebrew by Prof. (i. Selik. owiteli. Literary Editor of the Jew ish Daily News, with his eoiument in Post-Biblical or Rabbinical Hebrew. This masterly translation from the original Sanscrit of the Buddhistic Yodns t appearing every Sunday in Ha dour, is claimed by scholars to be a veritable tour-de-force, sine© the translation is imbued with the purest Biblical unction, thus bringing to the. reader a work of elegance in the lan guage of tbe Prophets and giving u true version of a eostiel uttered about six centuries before tin* destruction of the Second Temple—The Jewish Trib une. Exception to a published statement attributed to Archbishop Michael Gur ley. criticizing the attitude of the an-j eient Jews on birth control, is taken I in a letter sent the Archbishop in; Baltimore, by Hr. Kaufman Kohler. In I bis letter I)r. Kohler, who is president! emeritus of the Hebrew Union College. | declares that Jewish tradition nnd bis-: lory are in direct opposition to the, accusation. "I trust you will admit your error ami do justice to the Jew of whom your predecessor was u warm friend." the letter said. “Why Jews Turn to Chri stian Science” (Continued from page 1) Christian Science comes to the Jew ami says: We give you life and liealth. Judaism asks of the Jew hi* life and u life that shall be holy. It is not an easy thing to withstand what Christian Science purports to offer the Jew, life and peace and well, lielng in the place of unrest and dis comfort and death. Not that I mean to imply that Christian Science tolerates morul li cense or ofTors freedoms from ethical restraint, hut its stress is altogether changelessly upon the good to lie granted to life rather than upon the best that must l>e exacted from life. To the Jew dwelling in a world of ethical imperatives hard and austere, this invitation to dalliance in the primrose path is tempting almost to flu* point of Irresistibleness, For the .Tew has wandered in the straight and narrow road prescribed for him by the supreme sanctions of his religion on the one hand and the cruel oppres* sions of a hostile world on the other. After a careful reading of the tort- I book of the Christian Science move ment and a long-time study of the problem that is involved In it. I am : prepared to say that the cldefest | reason flint has moved Jews, though for the greatest rart they have been unconscious of their spiritual motiva tion to reject ‘ Judaism and accept Christian Science, Ims been the fact that Judaism is a religion stern and unyielding in Its exactions. Hard and heavy have been the burdens that have been imposed by the world without, hard and heavy have lieen the obliga tions imposed from within. Such has been the genius of Judaism that It has come to spoil obligation, duty and responsibility. I do not maintain that Christian Science or its votaries are indifferent to conduct, hut in the last analysis and reduced to its simp lest terms the slogan of Christian Science is: lU* Well and you will he happy; not Do Itiglit. lmppy or not. One of the moral shortcomings of our time is that we are made pleas ure-seekers. that too much of life is given to the quest of pleasure. Is there very much difference between the attitude of the present-day world which makes of pleasure a veritable religion and the religion the supreme aim of which is to make itself pleas ant and life painless? I do not wijftr-io stress tills, for 1 have meant to be constructive rut her than critical, hut after all what is it that tile Jewish seeker finds within Christian Science walks? He finds a world brought to his feet, no exactions, i.o demands, no compulsions, and. if nuy. these are so mildly put as to sound like drawing-room hints. What does it mean to have a re ligion without exactions and demands? If there in* no wrong in the world, then man may he ground down and op-j pressed without need of protest. If, there he no disease, then industrial accidents and occupational diseases need not lie guarded against. If there are no deaths, then wars toll of mil lions is nothing but an error of tin* mind and a delusion of the spirit . against which humankind need not] rise up in order to tend the reign of i uubrotherly slaughter. After tho bare, stark, harsh demands and exactions | of the synagog. the undemanding and iiiie.vactiug songs of Christian Science fall pleasantly indeed upon the long* luirrassitl an-.! relentlessly compelled hearts within Israel. Christian Science is rooted in -some part in tho fundamental Christian teaching—Resist not evil. Christian Science is carrying the doctrine, one step further than it was carried by the founder of Christianity, for it denies that evil is. It, must, because of its| denial, ignore evil, assuming that if it, ho ignored it will not lie. But what Christianity really meant I and taught was not that evil was not j to he resisted hut that evil-doers were I not to he resisted, that vengeance was! not to ho sought and wrought as • against the doers of wrong. Many cen turies ago the Rahhls said : Condemn I the sin. but forgive the sinner. Not j to resist evil would imply that we j had no right to build up a (lain, the bursting of which was imminent and i might overwhelm the inhabitants of! the land. But that were a very different tiling from resisting not evil-doers. We are not quite prepared to make the obser vation of Shakespeare our rule of lif• *. 1 though it he true that one may mike things evil as well as good by think ing them so. hut one cannot so unmake evil. One cannot efface evil by he denial of its existence. One cannot; think evil out of the world any more ( than one can think disease out of the World. Yes. through thought and ef fort one may overcome evil and re move it. from the world. lu;t it cannot ; lie untliought. No jmigic phrase, no visible chant, no modern abracadabra k will annul evil in the world. There, Is only one tiling to be done with evil and that is to battle with it. per-J sonally, immediately. everlastingly. | THE DENVER JEWISH NEWS Evil is. and it is for us to overcome it as vvt* can. If it be said that evil, sin and dis c-case have been in the world through out generations and centuries and that thus far In our buttle with these we have miserably failed, the only answer that needs to be made Is that no truly high effort is failure. <>u the < tlier hand, I deny that the battle with evil and disease -in the world lius been a failure. If failure there has keen, it was Inevitable because of the stupendous and overwhelming im mensity of the task. The battle with disease has been one of the noblenesses of the human race. Some terrible diseases and scourges of humankind have been conquered. Others are on the way to being overcome. The time may soon be when there will boa minimum of disease in the world, not because of verbal denial of the facts but because of ceaseless and unrelent ing conflict therewith. Within a century we have looked upon some mighty victories in the wnr of science with disease. Small pox hus been almost eradicated: typhoid can In* overcome; tuberculosis is coining to Its last stand ugnlnst the resistless determination of a righteous ly socialized human will. Human in genuity and diligence and skill and wisdom are pitting themselves as never before against those diseases which have desolated and ravaged tlie human race in past ages. To hold that the battle with disease has boon vain Is not only to speak that which is untrue but to belittle some of the noblest services and achievements that been wrought by the human mind and ’ will. Take the buttle with evil and dis ense and sin out of the world nud lift* becomes little more than u dreary, vapid, inane, lotus-eating carnival. Leave disease\and evil unchallenged 1 and not oidy will these overcome man but man will not remain worth sav ing. It is his endless battle with the forces of wrong anti sin in the 1 world that an* man's redeeming, that constitute his transfiguration. This pulpit will not In* misunder stood when it declares that it rejoices in rather than deplores uny honest . challenge that comes to church or ( synngog from the world without, from I any one of the great forces in the , Ytorld today. I rejoice in the Ethical , Movement founded a generation ago under the high leadership of I>r. Felix Adler, for it performed a service of I very great value to the cause of re r ligion in Am Aden. For that move t intuit rendered to religious societies of t America of all creeds the very great service of helping them to see that tin* 1 minimum emphasis must he upon the ‘| outward form nud rite and the mnxl- I mum upon inward righteousness. It | was tin* Etideal Society which through the powerful voice of its lender made . | clear not only In the word of Mnt- I thow Arnold, that conduct is three? I fourths of religion. Tlds great truth , synngog and church needed to learn I anew' and they have learned it in part. . nor will they ever forget it. . Again I rejoice in the challenge which cornea to all organized cliurch . bodies from the Socialist movement, that challenge which has resulted in a new insistence on the part of the ■ wiser and more prophetic of tin* lend ers of the church—every church shall ; emphasize that religion must menu the right ordering of human relationships —that the world of human affairs must he socialized or re-socialized that, harking back to tin* unforget table accents of the Prophet Amos, justice must How like waters nnd l ighteousness as ft ‘mighty stream. This Is my charge against Christian Science. It points to no new duties. It imposes no new burdens. It offers j ! i.o new responsibilities. If makes noj I new demands. Its pathway is that of least resistance. It is n revival in j or transfer to, the religious world of' what in the economic world has long been known ns the laissez-faire theory. The cause of the strength and : growth of Christian Science is not far jto seek. Men yearn for health nnd ! strength and youth, and more tlmn ! ever at such a time as this when the • forces that tire operative against health and tranquility are numerous | and compelling. To those who urge. : that one cannot hope to do battle of ' lectivel.v against Christian Science tin. ' less one has something to offer to men ' which will he equally attractive. I say that herein lies the very evil. This iis the heart of the wrong which ! Christian science is perpetrating. Re ; ligion Ims nothing to offer men. .It ; has no awards tef make. It. has no bounties to bestow. If ever there was j a time in the world when religion needed to be voiced and interpreted in 1 the terms of duty and obligation. I when it was deeded to make religion j a duty and u duty a religion, that | time is now. Xo one in his wildest flights of im- I agination or upon the basis of the i largest pretensions will claim that j I Christian Science ministers to the poor, j and the lowly and the tolling, it can- I not. do that, for it denies that there j are such; though, fortunately for it-; self from some points ot view, it dot's not deny that there are the well-to-do, to whom it does minister. What does this mean, save that, the number of churches of the privileged is to have another accession? Is it not true that the Science churches stand out today more conspicuously than all others ns utmost professedly the churches of the privileged, the rich and the well-to-do, the comfortable und the leisured? It was a fine word of Professor Fos. tor some years ago on Jesus—that lie did uot come to save people from pain lmt to make people strong enough lo do high and fine things in spite of pain. Tills is the aim of religion—not to save people from pain or to spare them burdens but to make them liear every burden and endure suffering with courage and dignity and noble ness. We are to fight disease in the world not by attempting to deny its exist ence. but by denying to men and peo ples the right to nmlntaiu conditions which necessitate disease and make evil inevitable. If you think that all is well with men. if you believe that your own well-being is most important, ilien the great movements in the direction of social righteousness will not interest you und you will have no part in them. This is the truth, and nothing but the truth concerning Christian Science; for their churches can have no more part in the ethical and spiritual re organization of liUtnan society than have the churches of Zululund or the South Sea IslniuK. Instead of denying the facts of dis ease. prevent women from working at night, clilldfen from working at nil. and take from the shoulders of the wage-earners of the nations the bur dens and strain of overwork. Would you end disease, then lessen congestion in tenement houses: give adequate and just wages: for these things mean the lifting up of standards and these are the ways in which to end disease. The way to end them is to do relentless battle against them. What Is needed In our line is an aggressive religious movement in the direction of social reorganization. Fro fessor Zueblln was right in saying that Christian Science by its inertia and pleasant personal satisfaction in health Interferes with this most im portant need of the world today. The question is often asked —what ran we. do to tnrn .Tows from Chris tian Scienct. or rather to avert their turning toward It? ~ It really is: must we do or'sbdß' they do? Proposals art? seriously made that we attempt spiritual healing in the synagog. For one thing, this were an Inexcusable compromise, and again it would not rvall. Sucji Jews ns Interpret re ligion in (be terms of physical healing alone will go wheresoever they believe they can find genuine and complete healing irrespective of and disburden ed from everything else. There is danger not a little that the synagog in attempting to practice heal ing would stoop to conquer, wpuld stoop without conquering. Even if we found it possible to provide some man ner of healing, still the service of tlu* synagog herein would not satisfy those who Idave Israel and the synagog be /eause of its commissions as truly as because of its omissions, even if wt coi’id convert the synagog into an unfailingly effective snnitorium, as long ns tile synagog firmly ami hon estly makes demands rather than vouchsafes bounties, Jews who have forind rest within the Christian Science meeting-houses will reject and despise it. As between Christian Science and Judaism, these would choose the former •ns little children at times prefer llubfe.v and iiucxnctiiig n Intivos to firmly exacting parents. What is needed in our day and gen eration is not that the synagog become n sanitarium or an annex thereto but that it l»e spiritualized anew and that spiritunlJzntion l>o independent and quite irrespective of Christiau Science. What is terribly needed with in the s.vangog is a renoiscenee of faith in the place of the organized ra tionalism and unorganized material ism of Jews, not n few. The urgent and includable need of the Jew is a spiritual revival and n moral rebirth. C.ivcn a synagog sanitarium—and at best you hove Jews who are Jews within the synagog in return for favor received; given n moral and spiritual rebirth, and you have Jews who will live as Jews outside of the synagog. Christian Science is in no real sense a rivalry or competition with the faith of Israel. Some infirm and un stable members of the. House of Israel may choose, and I use the term liter, ally, to cast, their fortunes with this new cult, but there can never be a conflict between Christian Science and the faith of Israel. Again, and for the last time. I sav that Christian Science deals in phy sical bounties and psychical gratuities Israel is a religion of moral demands and spiritual exactions. T'nlike Chris tian Science, Judaism does not prom ise man a new body or an ever-re newed body, a body without taint or (Continued On png** *) HAVE IT FIXED OK PATRONIZE THE FIRMS LISTED BELOW men IS A LEADER IN HIS PARTICULAR FIELD AND MERITS YOUR BUSINESS FAINTING AND PAPER HANGING THE JOHN P.
