IBM Evangelist Says Many Church “Plants" Hide Christ From People DENOMINATION NIGHT Sections To Be Reserved For Various Church Groups at Services In Warehouse Tomorrow Evening “The Shrouded Face of Jesus” was the basis of the sermon preached last night by the evangelist. Rev. H. C. Caviness, in the union revival at the Big Henderson Warehouse. The preacher declared that many churches today have “plants” so f.ne and pre-| tentious that the common people fear to enter them for worship and com fort, and. that the Christ is thus hid den from he people. Like Joseph of Arimathea, the rich man who sought and obtained the body of Jesus for burial, and ‘Thus came to after his death.'wealth is today shrouding the Savior from the world by [ts fine edifices that con tain little religion. ,v> The revival campaign ends next ■Sunday evening. There will be the usual services that day, starting with the sunrise meeting at 6:30 a. m. At ,3 and 8 p. m., the evangelist *w U tpreaoh on the second coming of Jesus Tomorrow evening space will be re served in the warehouse for members of each denomination in the city to ■sit together, and a sermon on steward rhip will be preached. After last night’s sermon a num ber raised their hands for prayer and a larger number than usual went jn to the inquiry room for the after service. In his sermon lost night, the evan gelist said, in part: , “We see many characteristics in the face of Jesus Christ, for, ‘God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts to reveal the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.’ 1 Cor. 4:6. The glory of God was fully revealed in the face of Jesus Christ, it was unveiled. Hi herto a veil had in large measure obscured that divine grace, known as his glory. As a result thereof the way had been darkened, the way of eter nal life, truh had perverted, a cor rupted priesthood had been the me dium of Satan by which the glory of God has been dimmed and dark ened. A ministry then, as one often finds now, who God scathingly de nounces in Isa. 56:10 ‘His watchmen are blind; they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slum ber.’ He continues in the next verse his counts in that awful bill of in dictment against the preacher who shrouds the face of Jesus Christ by saying, ‘Yea, they are greedy dogs Which can nevr have ’ enough, and they are shepherds that canhot un derstand, they all look to their own way, one for his gain, from his quarter, come ye say they, I will fetch wine ( arid we will fill ourselves with strong drink, and tomorrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.” The face of Jesus Christ was not only a stained face, a saddened face and an agonized face, it became a shrouded face, ‘When Joseph had taken the body of Jesus, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth.’ Matt. 27-59. “Jesus was dead now, His kingdom seemed gone, He before whom the world had stood in awe had died like a criminal dies, on the cross. Even His tomb was sealed. ‘So they went and ma.de the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone and setting a witch.’ Matt. 27:66. His face was shrouded, his se pulchre sealed, the only time wealth ever showed Him any consideration was after His death and during His burial. He could hunger in life, and pluck ears of corn with which to as sauge His famine while among men, a fish could bring the coin with which His debt was paid at the temple; birds could find nests, foxes would be given holes for a home, but He had no ‘where to lay His head.’ While He was weary, worn and hated, wealth made no provision for His life, but sought to shroud his face after death In fact wealth made her contribution toward the lie that hs had not arisen from the dead. Matt. 28:12-13. ‘They gave large money unto the soldiers, saying, say ye, His disciples came by night and »*ole him away while we slept.’ “Not on:y was His a shrouded face but it was hidden away in a sepul chre of stone. ‘Joseph took down the body and wrapped it in linen and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone.’ “But; Ah; tiiere is sadder picture than even this in this proud, boast ful twentieth century. Men shroud Hi 3 face still in their hearts of stone. Build great structures of steel, mar ble and stone, they call them church es, catherdrals, ‘plants.’ (Great God save us from the modern ‘plants’ the new name for His church, which He called the ‘House of Prayer.)’ “And in these tombs they entomb, they shroud the face of Christ. His glory is not seen, neither is His sal vation wrought out.

The glory of Christ is in the salvation of the lost The only time in the Bible that we are told of the angels rejoicing, dur ing the ministery of the Lord Jesus, was when a sinner was saved. We find that after the Temple was puri fied as described in Matt. 21:12-17, that ‘the blind and the lame came to Him in the emple and He healed hem, and the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying in the temple and saying Hosanna to Son of David, but they were sore dis pleased. ’ Matt. 21:14-15. How true this is today, shouts of joy in our modern ‘plants’ are exceedingly dis pleasing* the ‘blind an dthe lame’ come not so rthey know there is no healing there. “Humanity in the midst of beauty but none of it. In realm of lovely things, but excluded from iit. It sighs and sobs in agony but it cannot get in. “Jesus Christ said to Martha, ‘One thing is needful.’ Luke 10:42. Ah; how I we need in these day sto make that the tosen, the cry heard in every cap ital, in every churph, among citizen and child. ‘One thing is needful.’ “Lukewarmness. Rev. 3:16. Our in difference. Matt. 26:36-46. Our envies Matt. 27:18. Our reproach of Christ and His Cross. Psalm 69:20. Our car nality which robs us of growth and makes the citizenry of the church naught save pigmy and paralytic. 1 •Cor. 3:1-3. Our creedal doctrines which we use as a foundation, when there is but one foundation, Christ. 1 Cor. 3:11. May we loose Jesus from the winding sheet of death, which doubt ha’K woven upon the loom of the devil. Makes our ‘plants,’ our ‘itombs of death,’ our modern ‘se pulcres’ of Christ places of power and iGod’s ‘House of Prayer.’ In which the Holyi Spirit may function un grieved and unhindered and without insult. Then, and not until then, will men no longer lie outside it’s beauti ful ‘gates,’ wishing, hoping, longing for healing, but' on account of our eternal hypocrices and our shrouds of the Savior deprived of the light of the knowledge o‘s the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. “Ah; how we should thank God and ‘ake courage when we see, as often we do, that church which reveals the ighit of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Where sinner, though a parish and a devil’s outcast, can and does find salvation. Where child of God may grow in grace, where faith and love and hope are the mighty trinity as co-laborers wttth. The Eternal Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The Church, which unveals the face of Jesus Christ. God’s choosen medium by which the world might be stirred and evangelized. Were en throned we find the pre-eminent Christ. Who said of such a Church, 'The gates of Hell shall not prevail’ against her.” | Kittrell News | I By MISS RUBY SMITH The regular monthly meeting of the ladies aid society of the Kittrell Me thodist Episcopal church South was held on last Wednesday afternoon with Mrs. J.
