Under the one man theory every body would havo to cay that Mos es was ft murderer -For admitting the Bible t be true under such a theory hesuroly was For the word siiys that ho killed an Egyptian-As yon can rend in tins language: 1' And it canto to pais In those days, when Mosei wag grown, that he wtint mil unto hi brethren, sod looked on tuoli burdens: nd he spied tin Epyptian smiting s Hebrew, one of his brethren. Ami lit, looked this wny and that w ay, Had When )o "iw - lint thnrn was no man, he Blew the Egyptian, and hiil him in the sand.'' (Ex.2 il ) Yes iu the lL'lh . rtf9 you see that Mosos slow an Egyptian man Now then, if this Egyptian was just like tho Hebrew who be was striving with ; then iu this ease Moses would have to be called a murderer For to kill a man in this day and ne ;f tho world it would be tunned murder And God says (hat no murderer shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven As you may road: Envying!, tnurdor9, drunkenness, revelllngl, and such like: of tin; which I tell you before, as 1 havo also told you in (line past, that they which do eueh things shall not inherit tho kingdom Hod " (H;il. 3-31.) This would deliar Moses of in heriting the kingdom of Cod- He only could be found with this class of people that we road of in this language: "Hut the tearful, and unbelieving, ami the abominable, and muidurers. snd whoremongers, und sorcerers, and1 idolater! and all liars, Shall have thoir patt in the lake which burnetii with tiro sud brimstone; which is the second ilosth." (Ksv. 31-8.) Now friends and lovers of truth you cannot help but seo, that if there was but one man, thou Mos es stood oondemned as a murder er and could not inherit tho king dom of heaveh but would liavo to lc hound in chains of darkness In everlasting tormont. But this is not all After wo find utulor tho j one man theory Mosos to lo a mufdererand condomnod-Wo then seo another evidence of his where abouts after death- Which would not 0Qiuoide with tho statements above, and that is this: i 'Ami after six days .leans tsktth . 1'etiM, .Innies, and John his brother, am) briogeftll them up into a high moun tain apart.

Moses, find en fur Khss . While he yet spake, behold, a brlgb) cloud overshadowed tbem1 and behold voice out of the cloud which f:iiil This 's my beloved -Bon, la whom I urn well pleased' hear ye li i ra . ' (Matt I 1 to ) Now readeri of the Cbbssst what can wo do about this, under the ono man theory? For we liavo Moses a murderer and that no murderer can enter the king dom of Cod And yet in the trans figuration of Christ in the mount we learn that Motes ie classed with Christ and good old Klisha And God with (hem speaking in a loud voice concerning Jesus saving this is my beloved son hoar ye him.'1 oh! what a sad thing to believe thnt God would toll U3 that no murderer should inharit the kingdom of Cod. Ahd then ohose Mosos a murderer who k 1 11 vd the Egyptian to lend his people out ot the land of Egypt and havo him t become a wholaale murderer in murdering five na tions both men, women and chil dren as you will see in this s guage: But thou Shalt utterly destroy Diem. namely the Hittltes, and the Amorltss, tho laua&iiitei. and thu Perlzzltee, (tie llivites, and the JubisitSS; lbs Lord thy God hath commanded thee ' (Dsut. 20-17.) Now according to the above command of Cod to Mosos, there had u be a difference in these nations from the Israelites, oreise Moses became a murderer of little innocent children, which had never learned gin yet. Now dour readeri this will not do. Hence we must look some where ls for the truth ; for no one can justify, and satisfy, and harmonize thoBe scriptures under the one man the ory. Wherefore we mnst (oka up some othor idea. Henoe, wo shall auk tho readers to follow ua through in our argue meats given under the two meu theory. Tho first then that we will have to do is to prove that, Mosos was not a murderer. And in tho first place to prove this, wo will have to prove that the Gen tiles, (or the Egyptians,) killed by Moses was numbered with the boast, and a distinct character from the nation of people that Mosos belonged too. And to do this wo must go over grounds that wo have passed over time and a gain -Hence, we call the attention of the reader back to tho first chapter of Genesis, to whore God created tho progenitor of tho Egyptian, whom Moses slew And find that in his sixth day's work, that this man male and fo mal" wns created, in the same day that the beasts of t he earth was find that too, after tho beasts of tho earth had been created There fore he was numbered with the boasts of the earth This man was of the earth, earthy- Because God had sot tho world in his heart. Among the descendants of this character is where Oil iii got hi-,, wife, when God banished him in-1 j to lhe laud of Nod. And the I same chn racier spoken of in the piKth chapter Of Genesis, ns men : multiplying on the earth and .daughters feeing born unto them. And the same characters spoken of in Co-iesis the tenth chapter as being called Gentilen where the I sons of Noah did divide their isles I for them, i be same characters ' spoken of in t his language : ; "I Hid o mine heart cuirernliig the enisle 'Mi nous ef men that God tnilit maiiifasi tliein, mul i hnt ihcy might see that tltsy iJtemstlvos are beams I Ecclo 8 -18.) Here is positive proof of these people being numbered with the beasts And the woman belong ing to the same nice of people Ohrlst spok to in this manner: "The woman -auk u Orcek, a Syropho nlclan by nation: aud hIio besought him thul he WOUld'CIi! forth '.lie devil 0U of her dattgnfst Bill JosUI said unto her, Let the Children first be tilled, for it is not meet to Uko the Children' broad, and to cast it unto tho dogs " (Mark 7--28- il ) Hero Christ numbered the Greek woman (Gentile woman) with tho dogs, This nation of people war, numbered with tho jonste While the nation that Moses belonged to was Cftje,j tne people of GodThis Gentile peo pie did not havo salvation until Christ died .hi th.. cross, rose triumphant over death, find bv his shed blood brought salvation to them as I'aul says on this pnini ; I so Mion, Have they stumbled that thoy thee;,!, full': Ood ferbW; but rnlhor through their fa!! salvation ia come unto the Hentile. lor m prove!;,. ti,e,n t0 ra). ousy " i Horn iv -11, Yes they did not have salvation before fchis they were made n poo. pie right here as says: Wuarefore remember, thai ye being in tloie past Oentilot In tho Hh. who art called Uncircumclsian bv that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by bands; LOOK HERE!
