that came throuirh Adam; and then,
risen from the dead and glorified with
the Father's power. He could at once
have begun His gnat woik of setting
free the prisoners of Sin and Heath.

A Race of Slaves.
During Messiah's thousand year Reign
the groaning creation will be deliver

er to sons of God. Behold what ter
rible lKndages are upon mankind:
Look at their ignorance, their super
stition. their fears, their weaknesses,
mental, moral, physical. mkI the sum
of these disabilities death. Consider
the hundreds of millions alive today
that need assistance, and the thou
sands of millions unconscious, in the
tomb. Their awakening from death
will not le the fulfilment of this
prophecy of resurrection. It will mean
much more the uplifting of mind and
body to all that was lost 3n Adam and
rebfined at Calvary.
This does not signify tniversal sal-v.-tion.
except in that the Bible prom
ises that "as ail in Admit die. even so
all in Christ shall le made alive, ev
ery man in his wn order" lass. (1
Corinthians 1.1:22. 23.) Th giving to
i! marfclne! the fuTi' opportunities o
the Millennial Kingdom will fulfil
God's promise. Those who shall in
telligently refuse God's gift of ever
lasting life, by refusing His reasonable
requirements, will die the Second
Death. But those who at the conclu
sion of the Millennial Age shall have
profited by The Messiah's Kingdom
will be received into God's family and
will be granted all the liberties and
privileges proper to the pons of Gd.
Revelation 21:4; 22:3.
Although we should understand what
God has promised of Restitution to hu
man perfection for the groaning crea
tion in general, it is still more impor
tant that Christians recognize the
share of liberty which has already
come to them. tGalatians 3:1.) Do not
misunderstand me to refer to the great
mass. Catholic and Protestant, noted
In the statistics as 4iKt.KX.n0 Chris
tians. Alas, no! That great mass is
deceived. According to Bible stand
ards and their own confessions, they
have neither lot nor part in the Church
which is the Body of Christ.
This great mass 1-i well represented
in the nations of Europe warring for
commercialism, the one to obtain, and
the other to hold, the key of over and
access to the world's wealth. Saints
there undoubtedly are in all the war
ring nations; but they are so few that
they have virtually no inib.iencc. but
are fort ed by the others into the st rug
pie. The mass of these nominal Chris
tians neither know Christ iHi-onally
nor give c itlence of liav'ng conic into
God's family through the begetting of
the Holy Spirit. As truly as the hea
then of other lands, they are "without
Gd and having no hope." There is a
hope for them; but they know it not.
Responsibility of Clergy and Laity.
Vhe:e lies the responsibility for pres
ent conditions that the millions of Eu
rope are lichting like devils, each army
deceived into thinking that it is the
Lord's army. fight'ug for God and
righteousness? A'e believe that the re
sMiisi)(i!ity lies close, to the d'or of the
churches of all denominations, and es
pecialiy close to the door of the reli
gious teachers, who assume great re
spoiisibility in calling themselves the
clergy, and setting themselves alov
their fellows, styled the laity.
These hnnistcrs of the civilized world,
more than a quarter of a million in
number, represent a highly favored
eh:s of humanny. The majority f
tiiem have much above the average of
education, and far alove the average
of time for study and thought. How
are they using these wonderful oppor
tunities and privileges, and the in
faience, which goes with their posi
tions and which is accentuated by the
superstition of the masses?
I freely acknowledge that they are
not responsible lo me; as it is written.
"To his own Master each servant
stands or falls." Jt is quite proper,
however, that we remember the Mas
ter's words. "Out of thine own mouth
will 1 judge Hue, thou wicked and
slothful servant." (Luke R:22.t What
a fearful retribution apparently awaits
those professed ministers of God and
of Christ who. instead of using their
great opportunities for cmanciiNii ing
the people from the slavery of igno
rance, sujterstitioii and error, are using
them to promote lut-rual bondage!
Moral Cowards Everywhere.
The clergy neglect their opportunities
for educating the people to a projter
tmception of the rights of man. They
have fostered the fallacy that the king
doms of the world are kingdoms of
God, and that serving the king is serv
ing the Lord. They have not taught
the people the broad patriotism that
"the earth is the Lord's and the ful
ness thereof." which He hath given to
the children of men; and that national
barriers of selfishness and national ag
gressiveness are contrary to the rights
of man. The clergy of each country,
supported by the governments, have in
turn upheld these governments; and if
they have not told the people that the
voice of the emperor or the king is the
voice of God. they have certainly not
disabused them of that idea, which the
clergy of past general ions inculcated.
Now that the war has come, and the
misdirected people are blindly lighting
for their errors and misconceptions,
what is the attitude of the clergy?
Fnder the pay or toe protection of the
governments, are they not all support
ing the governments from which they
receive their pay? Are they not intent
upou encouraging the ambitions of
these governments and stirring up the
jeople to war? !. they not approve
the legend on the belts of the German
soldiers, "God with us"? Do they not
follow the lead of the Archbishop of
Canterbury, in England, in encourag
ing the thought that all who enlist are
fiigniilng iii a holy war for God? The
Archbishop is credited in the press
with urging the boys and the girls of
Great I '.rit a in to marry early and bring
up large families, that there may be
more such Christian soldiers to battle
for church and state.
Policy and hypocrisy are written all
over the affairs of the world falsely
called Christendom Christ's Kingdom.
These are not Christ's Kingdom, nor
are these Christ's ministers, if we shall
judge by the Savior's statement, "II is
servants ye are to whom ye render
service" whether God or Mammon.
The clergy of lands not directly in
volved in the war are praying, and
urging the people to pray, to God to
stop the war; but we hear no sugges
tion, from any quarter, of proper
preaching and teaching to show the
people the brotherhood of the human
family and the sin of murder, whether
committed by commands of kings, em
perors, or otherwise. Where is the
courage? Where is the moral stamina?
It is lacking. Why? Because true
Christianity is lacking.
Christ's true followers are courageous.
Jesus refers to them all as overcomers.
not sycophants; as lovers of joace, win
contend not with carnal weapons. His
followers must necessarily, neverthe
less, be true heroes, copies of their
Master, not afraid to speak the truth
and not afraid to die for their courage.
What a power a quarter of a milliou
professed ministers of Christ might le
if they truly took their stand on His
side, lifted up their voices, and even
now confessed how seriously they have
misled the people in respect to earthly
things, us well as regards the things of
the hereafter!
Hypocrisy the Greatest of Sins.
Judged by their utterances, the great
mass of those professing to be minis
ters of Christ are hypocrites. In pri
vate conversation,' if cross-examined,
they confess that they do not believe
the Bible, and declare that no educat
ed person could lelieve it to be a Di
vine revelation. Asked whether they
believe hi a future life, they answer
that they have some hopes of a future
life, but that these are built, not upon
the Bible declaration of a resurrection
of the dead, but upon the Platonic phi
losophy that nobody is dead. Asked
whether they believe iu eternal tor
ture, they reply. Certainly not! Indi
rectly, however, they have given the
inference that they believe it: and
surolv thev have not done anything to
take from the people that nightmare
invenfed during the Dark Ages, when
for twelve hundred years the few Bi
bles there were ere relegated to the
cloister and the closet, and the world
was taught by self-styled apostolic
bishops, who claimed the same author
ity of inspiration as the Twelve Apos
tles whom Jesus named as His only
There were murderers, thieves and
drunkards in Jesus' day. as there are
today; yet the Master denounced a
still greater sinners the religious hypo
elites of His time who made void
God's Word, substituting for it human
tradition deceiving and misleading the
people "blind leaders of the blind.'
Were He to speak forth today. His
strongest condemnation would be ex
pressed against the clergy, who seem
intent upon keeping the people in dark
ness respecting the true teachings of
the Bible teaching them evolution ami
unhejief if they are educated, or de
lusions of the Dark Ages if they are
uneducated. Policy seems to take thf
place of honesty. The Apostle speak.
of such as having their consciences
seared toughened, hardened.
As a result, nearly all ministers wi'l
say. "We do not believe in the doctrine
of eternal torture. We would not think
of torturing anybody ourselves; we d-
not know any human being so dprav
ed that he would wish to torture his
fellow-creature everlastingly. We do
not believe that any god would do so.
We doubt whether any devil would
long take pleasure in sudi sufferings."
Asked why they support e-revds which
so- teach, und why.Iuy give such in
ference to the public, some reply, "it
is required of ns by our denominations.
We would much prefer to tell the truth
alut the Love of Gtwl and His ar
rangement for the blessing uf the non
elect during the Time's of Restitution.
(Acts o:l! 21.1 But we are bound hand
and foot. Our supjort and our honor
ani"i:gt men depeiel on our adherence
to this doctrine. If we could see a
way out of the dilTiculty, we would le
glad to be liberated."
Others answer that they give their
consciences no concern, that their de
nomination takes the responsibility for
its creed and for its tea hers. Oth
ers answer that they are Higher Crit
ics and Hvolut ionists, who believe
that they must not tell the people their
he-art sentiments; but that they hope
that sn public sentiment will out
grow the influence of the Bible, and
th.n then they will le called upon to
teach a Christ less and. if necessary, a
Godless morality.
After the Example of Judas.
Such bartering of the honor of the
Almighty for honor of men and an
e-asv living is its dillicult to unelerstand
as that of Judas, who sold Jesus for
thirty pieces of silver. .So soared are
the consciences of the-se educated men
that they seem not to realize that blas
phemy is the most serious of sins;
and that directly or indirectly giving
the inference that the God f all grae
the Father of mercies, is roasting !'-.
out of everv of humanity is the
worst blasphemy that could be con-e-octeel.
How much allowance Joel
makes for these blasphemers we know
not, lint we feH that theirs is a terri
ble josition. Won Ul that some word
of mine might assist in awakening
their ceuisciences; ami that even yet
nobility ami manhood, not to say saint
ship, might gain the victory!
And does not the pew share this re
sponsibility? Has it no meaning to in
telligent men and women that they
have subscribed to a creed that blas
l hemes G oil's holy name, totally mis
represents His character, and throws
an utterly false light on the Bible? Is
it sufficient ihat these should say, "We
no longer believe these creeels"? Do
not their names en the rolls, their pres
ence at church services. anJ their vuz?
tribution to the upkeep of these creeds
and their clerical defenders constitute
a responsibility in the sight of God
and in the esteem of all honest men
and women? How long shall intelli
gent eople halt between creeels of hy
pocrisy and one of honesty? How long
will they Jiow down before creed idols
more horrible than any worshiped by
the heathen?
While mankind is celebrating today
the birth of this great nation which
stands for liberty, freedom, emancipa
tion from the thralldoin or church and
state, let us personally make fresh res
olutions that we will stand fast in the
liberty wherewith Christ makes fre'e.
and be Ilis servants, loyal, failhful
nnto death, hoping to receive "the
Crown of Life, which f adeth not away."

ship is one of the most regular and

bad cold. At times the pain extended
from my back and hips into my
shoulders. I couldn't get about and
was laid up for two weeks. My head
ached for hours at a time and I had
dizzy spells, during which my sight
blurred. Two boxes of Doan's Kid
