BISHOP WILLIAMS OF
He Wat Greeted By a Large Congregation and Hit Discourse Was
On the Theme, "Obedience to the Law of the Kingdom,"
' Which Delighted His Hearers.
The morning service at St.
Luke's church Sunday was of
great interest and a large con-'
gregaliou came out to hear
Bishop Williams, who preached
a magnificent sermon, taking for
his theme "Obedience to the Law
of the Kingdom." The music fur
nished by the large, well-drilled
choir titled in with the discourse.
Tho wnlii iiio'ls in the leiletim wen
taken by Mhs Edna Peterson and;
Mr. Austin. The choir also sangi
that beautiful anthem by llrono
Huber, "My Defence Is of God."
The bishop spoke in part as fol
My text taken, dear friends, I

teenth Sunday after Trinity
Ephesians iv, verses 17-18: "That
ye henceforth walk, not as other
gentiles walk, in tho vanity of
their mind; having the under
standing darkened, being alienat
ed from tho life of God."
'St. Paul, in writing these in
spired words of exorlation to the
church in Ephesus, making a
striking distinction between those
Gentiles who had accepted Christ
and His authority, and tho other
Gentiles who had not accepted and
surrendered to Christ. He goes
on to show that those who had re
jected Christ were walking in the
vanity of their mind that is,
each one was walking according
to tiis own mind and inclinations.
Now, it seems to me that St. Paul
struck the kcnolc of the greatest
difficulty which confronts Chris
tianity today a difficulty, which
has assumed enormous propor
tions since the sixteenth century
and is fostered and encouraged by
the current sentiment and teach
ings of today. -"Each according
to his own mind."
Hut what are the fads? What
truth did SI. Paul emphasize when
lie made this very plain and
simple distinction? Why, this,
that God came into our humanity
ami organized his kingdom on
earth. II was nol.a republic in
the sens,, of its civil policy. It
was not a democracy or a com
mune in its practical application
of law and order. It was a king
dom over which Christ reigned
and is now reigning as its king
a kingdom with ofllccrs in order
ly subnrdinat ion to administer
and enforce not (heir own laws
and will, but the laws and will of
Christ, its king. Hut the trouble
is that authority of any kind is
very galling to the natural carnal
heart, and whenever the kingdom
and its laws are asserted it be
comes an offense to (he world and
the fallen will of man generally,

The consequence is that there is
always a body of resistance which
sometimes finds an expression
within the kingdom itself.
Nominal Christianity is divided
into two great parts. First, those
who are living within (hose his
toric and apostolic bodies which
have derived and preserved this
idea of a kingdom, with its laws
and authority from the beginning.
Secondly, those who by accident
are living without I he kingdom, or
deny the necessity of preserving
the truth by the safeguards which
the past history of the world long
ago demonstrated as (he only
protection against heresy and
Now, when an earnest sout
and how many of them there are
asks me as a minister and
authorized teacher of tho king
dom the question, "What is your
view of (he incarnation?" I say ,to
myself, here is a precious soul
walking according to his own
mind, and he supposes that there
is no fit her way for me to walk in,
and so he says to me, what is my
view, my opinion? He asks the
question out of his whole heart,
and he is generally much sur
prised when he hears the reply:
"I have not so learned Christ.
Who am I that my view is belter
than yours? You ask the blind
to lead the blind. Why is my view
better than yours? I have no
view. Hut there is something bet
ter, however. I can impart to you
what the Kingdom of fiod on earth
is, what, the pillar and ground of
(he truth gives as (he (ruth, both
to you and to rne and to the whole
world. It is my duly as a Chris
tian to accept that (ruth, and my
office as a'pi'iest to give it to you
if you seek it."
" Well, brelhern, here is the issue
which St. Paul makes: Either
submission to the law of the king
dom, or groping in (he darkness
of our own mind. The opposing
forces in Christianity today are
individualism and Catholicity.
There is a vast difference in be
lieving in the kingdom and in be
lieving in one's own self and one's
own view. It is the difference be
tween humility and self-esteem;
submission and revolt; order and
confusion; peace and certainly;
obedience and disobedience. One
person says, "I don't believe in
baptism; I can be a Christian
without thai" (following his own
mind. but suppose it is a law of
the kingdom? Another says, "I
do not see (he necessity of con
firmation" but suppose it is a
law of the kingdom? Another
says, "I do not wish to go to
communion" but suppose it is

An Elegant Line
Give Us Early Light
We do not like to be eternally
growling about earlier lights in
the morning, but it is awfui for
one to come down to his place of
business about 5:30 or 6 o'clock
in the morning and work with the
light of a coal oil lamp until it is
light enough to do without it, and
then have the electric light come
on right over your head just
when you don't need it. Of course,
we do not know why they can't be
turned on at least an hour earlier.
But we do know that it would be
a god-send to many homes where
the household duties compel them
to rise earlier than the ordinary
merchant or office man. An all
night lighting system is what
Plattsmouth ought to have, and'
then that would stop the growling
of early risers, who must get up
before daylight. Give us earlier
lights and don't wait all winter to
