multitudes of them
confused as to
how it Ui obtain-
ablo. Thero may bo
threo answers to
the quostlon, How
la a man to bo
Saved by Prin
ciple. First, somo seem
to think a man 1b
saved by adopting
certain theological propositions; cer
tain religious dogmas or teachings.
Tho weakness of this position Ib
qulto easily seen by tho majority and
they Immediately say that tho theory
must ovcnUato in practice; thoro must
bo a program of conduct, and that
program must bo carried out In actual
Saved by Program.
For such a program tho moral law
of God 1b put to tribute. Tho ethics
of wise men of Old Testament times;
tho best ethics of seekers after truth
of tho first centuries; tho ethics of tho
Sormon on tho Mount and of Jesus
himself and his apostles, are all put
to tribute, and a program of llfo is
presented, and If It can bo carried
out, salvation will ensuo perforce. This
belief la in the faco of much teaching
of tho Word of God that man's right
eousnesses aro as filthy rags. Yet,
with all this, thero aro thousands of
mon and women today who aro trust
ing somo program of living to be their
passport to eternal salvation. But
sincere students of the principles and
tho ethics of Jesus havo found that
other teachings of Jesus take the foun
dation from under this program.
Tho religion of Jesus Christ la
unique, being different from all other
religions in that thoso who aro to re
ceive its benefits are not to do so as
tho result of tholr belief in Its prln'
clples, nor an alignment of tholr lives
with Its program of conduct. Neither
Buddha nor Confucius nor Mohammed

koop themselves in tho background
Not so with Jesus Christ, and, strange
nH it mnv neom. hla rnhrrlnn Is. In n
sonso, tho most egotistic of all tho
rollgions that the race of man has over
rocelved. Ho makea moat aatounding
claima for hlmsolf: Ho Is equal with
tho Father; ho Is tho son of God; ho
has all power given to him in heaven
and on earth; ho can ralso tho dead;
ho can lay down his llfo, but ho can
tako it up again; ho can forgive sin;
ho is worthy to receive all honor and
worship, both of men and of angels;
In short, ho claims to bo God. Ho
clearly teaches that salvation Is not
in assent to, nor in belief In his prin
ciples, nor in following a program ot
conduct that ho gives, but In living
union with hlmsolf.
Personality of Jesus Christ.
Wo may note that in tho text wo
find that belief Is referred to, but no
hint is given of principles, or a pro
gram ot living. Tho belief horo, how-
I , , . . ......
, to o a
oxerclso, but a soul movement. This
teaching is frequent: "Believo on tho
Lord Jesus Christ nnd thou shalt be
saved;" "Ho that belloveth on the Son
of God hath everlasting llfo;" "Como
unto mo nil yo that labor and aro
heavy laden and I will glvo you rest."
Now all this teaches that religion is
not a matter of principles or program,
but of personal contact with Jesus
Christ. Ho is represented as tho head
of tho body, of which saved men nro
tho raombors. Ho Is tho chief port of
tho great spiritual building known as
tho church of God, of which his bollov-
era are parts. Ho is tho vino in which
believers aro tho branches. It Is in-
timato, personal contact all tho way
throuch. Ono has vcrv nronerlv said:
"Much ot tho dcadnes3 that has come
to modern Christendom has resulted
presenting n creed Instead of Christ;
In presenting a plnn of salvation rather
than a person who saves."
How to got this personal contnet
with Jesus? Study Jesus, as ho is
presented, especially in tho gospels
and epistles of tho Now Testament, as
the Son of God. Whllo no ono can say
Jesus Is Lord, except by the Holy
Spirit, yet by following tho Holy Spirit
jn his teaching In tho Scriptures, wo
may believe that ho will glvo light

and sincerely Booking to know truth at
