OF AN ISHMAELITE
It is about as difficult for ani

mobile as for him to handle a
When the stork visits a home it
generally leaves a howling remind
The average church member of
this day and time acts as if there
wasno sin and not much of heaven
or hell. Some of them, though,
use the church ai a cloak and
seem, by tlheir actions, at least,
that they have got a reserve seat
ticket that will admit them to a
front seat at the (treat White
Throne, no matter how they live
or what they do here'on this earth.
We get heart-sick at the lying,
cheating, hypocrical church mem
ber. He is lying to his conscience,
cheating his soul and practicing
hypocrisy with God. They use
religion as a cloak-make a Sun
day suit of it and put it on to go to
church in, the balance of the time
it willIbe found lying behind the
bed room door, and sometimes it
can be found covering a jug of
liquor from the preacher, under
the excuse that "the old woman is
puny and I have to keep a little
for to make bitters for her." The
old hypocrite, he slips out of the
bed overy morining and takes a
swig out of the jug before the "old
Wom11an1" is awake, and when Sun
(lay comes ho hies off to get it fill
ed again, for tho "old womar's"
bitters" must be on hand.
Again, there are church mem
bers-not Christian church mem
bore, but fellows who simply have
their-names on the church book,
who talk abnut h)w good they are
and how honest, and they p)ay all
their debts, and you will find that
they have paid off the lins and
mnortgages over them while the
blacksmith, printer. -doctor ai-d
any other sucker who has been
kind enough to extend credit to
them on "their face" is done to a
turn and the poor preacher "gets
it where the chicken got the axe"
when it comes time to collect hi"
salary. Yet they are honest when
they are made to be so.
The preachor, poor man, he has
to do the best he can; be labors all
the year and at the end of the year
he accepts anot her call, poorer thai
when he began the new year's
work , and why, simply because he
has been handicapped, a muzzle
has been put on his mouth, he canl
not p~reakch as he should for fear
of offeinding some "good *member"
who helps to pay his salary, and
because of certain utterances some
One else retfuses to pay, the out
4 come generally being that the mem
bers get mad at him at the end of
the year to keep from paying. This
is regular dishwater preaching..
Hammer the truths into the peo,

How mnai.y times does your Bible
4 tell you of the "faithful few" being
fed and clothed. What doas it say
about the discilples going to preach
without script in their purse or
sandals upon their feet? Have
you lost the faith of your forbeare?
