Sermon by IN LONDON
"There Shall Be No Mote Deulh , Neither
Sorrow Noi Crying , Neither Shall There Be
Any More Pain j Tor the i'ormer Thingi
Are Paiied Away" ( [ Revelation xxi , 4) ) .
London. ICng. , May 8.-Albert Me-
inorlul Hull , the lurgi'.sl and most re
nowned auditorium In the world , hav
ing u capailty of ten thousand , wu *
crowded this evening to hear Pastor
HtiHsell , of the Brooklyn Tabernacle ,
New York , who delivered an address
on "ItUUHAFTKU" under the an-
nplces of the "International Hlble Stu
dents Association. " Taking the above
text , he said : -
Mankind Instinctively look for mid
believe In a future life ; to the majori
ty of minds U does not seem logical
that death ends nil. So surely as wo
liellevo our Creator to be all-wise , wo
must assume that he bus some pur
pose In connect Ion with our nice , not
attained us yet , something beyond the
onpm-ity of attainment In the present
life , under present conditions. Kven
without a Divine revelation , therefore ,
we would be Justllled In anticipating
a life beyond the tomb , but specula
tion upon such mi Important subject ,
of such vital Interest , Is not necessary.
We are glud that our Creator bus
given us In the Bible el car intimations
respecting his purposes , In relation to
mankind In the future. Nevertheless
these purposes were kept secret , not
revealed until the llrst advent of our
Itodcemer. Thus the Apostle declares
that "Christ brought life and immor
tality to light through the Gospel. " It
was invisible before , not brought to
light , and Its terms and conditions
could not be clearly discerned.
Without any Divine revolution , we
woe a sulllelency on every hand to
cause astonishment and to call anx
iously for explanations. Wo sec the
world of mankind weak and depraved ,
Hlghlng , crying and dying. "Transi
tory" is written upon everything hu
man. The Scriptures assert that we
of today are living under "u reign of
Bin and death , " and that this dominion
hus lusted for over six thousand
years. Why are these things so ? Is
it not true that there Is but the one
God ? Is it not true that his creatures
on the spirit plane are perfect , that in
heaven there Is neither sighing , nor
crying , nor dying ? There Is no reign
of sin and death there , no hospitals ,
no asylums , no jails , no penitentiaries
all Is harmony , perfect , pure , In full
accord with the Almighty. Why are
conditions so different on this earth of
Because One Man Disobeyed.
The. Bible alone offers us an explana
tion of the situation. It tells us that
God created our race us pure , as per
fect , us holy , as happy us the angels ,
and that he placed our first parents In
lidon , surrounded with everything
beautiful and desirable. It explains
that our fall from that perfection into
mental moral and physical decrepi
tude came us u result of disobedience
to God. it explains that "the wages
of sin is death , " that "the soul that
Rluneth , it shall die , " ( hut till the souls
produced by Father Adam and Moth
er Kve lire dying souls , in consequence
of our sln-lnherltiince. This Is bad
enough , sail enough ; anil , as wus in
tended , our hearts cry out after the
living God , for his mercy and compul
sion , that he would save us from death ,
save us from destruction. The answer
of Divine Justice is , that we are unfit
to live that our Creator graciously do-
Hlgus that sinners shall not be immor
tal. But , hearkening , we hour a mes
sage assuring us that God bus looked
dwwn In compassion and "heard the
groaning * of the prisoners. " He fore
knew our helplessness under the reign
of sin and death , and In his Plan made
provision for our case in advance "be
fore the foundation of the world. "
After four thousand years of this
reign of sin and death , exhibiting Di
vine Justice without mercy , our Cre
ator revealed the wonderful features
of his Program. He sent forth his
Son. "that he. by the grace of God ,
might taste death for every man"
not for the Klect Church merely , but
for ull the families of the earth.
Hence it Is written that Jesus "gave
himself n ransom for ull ; " and again ,
that "He is the propitiation ( satisfac
tion ) for our sins ( the Church's ) and
not for ours only , but also for the sins
f the whole world. "
So. then , the death penalty pro
nounced against our nice , which would
have reduced Adam and his posterity to
the hopeless condition of beasts , us
respects eternal life , God had already
Intended to set nslde through the sue-
rlllce of Christ. Nevertheless , lie al
lowed sin and death to reign from
Adam to Moses , and from Moses to
Christ , and from Calvary to the pres
ent. He hus contented himself with
laying the foundation for the world
wide blessing , in Hit ) death of the Re
deemer. He intends ultimately , the
Bible assures us , to offer complete de
liverance from sin and death , to Adam
ment Is that , "since by man came
death , by man came also the resurrec
tion of the dead. For us all in Adam
die. even so all In Christ shall be
made ullvo But every man In hU
own order" ( I Corinthians xv , U1-'J3) ) .
ytncn nor namu wua
"Doctrines of Demons. "
The truth about this matter Is sevens
enough ; It shows forth Divine Justice ,
intertwined with Divine Mercy and
Love. We admit our present unworthiness -
worthiness of 'life eternal and feel
grateful for proposed assistance
through Christ , but our great Adver
sary , operating through Ignorance , and
superstition and fear , seized the op
portunity to deceive us and misrepre
sent our Creator by bringing In what
St. Paul designated , "doctrines of
demons" ( I Timothy Iv , 1) ) . These have
been promulgated , not merely In heath
en lands , but amongst the civilized.
These false doctrines have tended to
alienate the hearts and minds of hu
manity from God and his revelation ;
they have put a barrier between God
and his creatures.
These "doctrines of demons" are pre
sented from various standpoints , but
they are alike In one respect ; namely ,
they all leach that God deceived our
first parents when he told them that
the "wages of sin is death. " These
"doctrines of demons" assert the con
trary , that man cannot die , but must
live .somewhere to all eternity. Tims
on the basis of man's fears , this doc
trine that God thrust Immortality upon
his creatures , the demons built up for
us a theory so horrible as to be nau
seating and terrifying to every sane
and healthy mind. These "doctrines
of demons" have been promulgated far
and near , and with various colorings ,
but In essence they are all the same.
They have come down from the "dark
ages , " represented In all our creeds ,
Catholic and Protestant.
Our Catholic friends have developed
this thought to a nicety. They tell us
that of those who die , only a mere
handful are fit for heaven and go
there Immediately. They tell us that
the most reprehensible class , heretical
rejecters of Divine Truth , will be sent
to a hell of eternal torture where they
will never die. They assure us , how
ever , that the number who will rp-
celve this extreme punishment Is small
In comparison with the race as a
whole. They tell us that the majority ,
Catholics and Protestants , civilized
and heathen , are unlit for heaven at
death , and likewise not deserving of
eternal torture , and tht't thus the great
mass of mankind , nine out of every
ten , go at death to Purgatory , there to
suffer for centuries or for thousands
of years In expiation of sins , and for
purification of their souls , that they
may be eventually fit for Heaven and
its blessings. Our hearts rebel at such
a view of the "hereafter. " Willie giv
ing our Catholic friends , and our own
forefathers who were Catholics , credit
for being as sincere as ourselves , wo
conclude that the light of our day , and
the light of our intelligence , will not
permit us to believe and rejoice In
such a view of the "hereafter" as this.
We sny to ourselves , Surely the Great
God has something nobler than this in
reservation for his creatures.
Protestant Views Worse.
What shall we say of the "Here
after" from the standpoint of our
Protestant creeds ? How do these com
pare with the Catholic views fore
going how much worse ? When our
forefathers thought they had found
something erroneous In the teachings
of Papacy , when they concluded that
Purgatory was not to be found in the
Hible , they heroically determined to
cast it out of their creeds. Hut alas !
When discarding it , they did not re
alize that they were making a bad
matter worse. They held on to the
"doctrine of demons , " that God hud
created man so that he could not die ,
and could not be destroyed , and so
they proceeded to Interpret matters
along that line. Realizing the Scrip-
turalness of the proposition that only
the saintly were tit for heaven , and re
jecting the theory of Purgatory , they
logically consigned all except the saint
ly thereafter to eternal torture. Alas ;
How Inconsistent it is ; how strange
( hat we ever thought Divine Fore
knowledge , Wisdom , Justice , Mercy ,
Love and Power should have created
man to the number of thousands of
millions , with the foreknowledge and
fore-intention and desire that they
should suffer an eternity of torture.
Parting of the Ways.
Thus , my dear hearers , you with my-
Belf and others of the intelligent people
ple of the world , find ourselves today
In u most trying position. Our hearts
have repudiated the doctrine of eter
nal torture as being un-Chrlst-llke , un
worthy even of a devil. We can be
lieve neither In a Purgatory of centu
ries , nor In eternal torture as a consequence
quence or penally for Adam's disobedi
ence in eating of the forbidden fruit ,
nor as a penalty upon Ills children for
not living perfect lives when they
were "born in sin and slmpcn in iniqui
ty" and "prone to sin as the sparks to
fly upward. " Our hearts cry out for
the living God and the true light upon
Under this awakening intelligence ,
thousands of noble men and women
are leaving God's Hook , and leaving
all of the Churches to go after Theosophy -
ophy , Christian Science , and especially
after Evolution , with its companion
teaching of Higher Criticism that the
Bible la thoroughly unreliable. Wearo
living now In a time of great fulling
away from the faith ; few Intelligent
people any longer believe in the Klble.
Our colleges and universities and , sad
to say , our theological seminaries are
busy turning out unbelievers Infidels
Nor are these people wicked or Immor
al In their unbelief ; they are as well-
meaning as ever , but have lost their
way. They reject the Hlble botatisn
they believe It to be the fnut'Zjtlan ' of
the various Inconslslenct/M In their
creeds ; they are stumbling for lack of
knowledge : they cannot believe that
man's hereafter Is one of centuries of
suffering , or of eternal suffering.
Seeking Iho Old Pnths.
Th > Lord , through the Prophet Jere
miah , tells his people to "Inquire for
the old paths , " ami this Is the appro
priate lesson for each of us. Wo do ,
Indeed , need to discard the creeds of
the past , not because they contain
nothing of truth , but because error
commingles In them to such a degree
as to make them perversions of truth
as a whole. Wo need to take off the
ereedal spectacles with which we have
hitherto been studying ( Sod's Word ,
and come to the Hlble afresh , to hear
Its message. Thus coming , many of
us have been surprised as we have
found Its purity and consistency and
harmony with Itself. We liuve already
Intimated the Hlble view of man's
death sentence , and ( he Hlble presen
tation that Christ died for our redemp
tion , and the Hlble assurance that as
a consequence , in "due time , " "the
knowledge of the glory of God shall
fill the whole earth. " Wo have also
the Bible assurance that not merely
the living will profit by the provision
of God's grice , but that "nil that are
in their graves shall come forth" to
share In and to bo blessed by the fa
vorable conditions which God will by
and by Inaugurate.
The Bible declares that the penalty
for sin Is being experienced by hu
manity at the present time the death
penalty and that the redemption price
of Christ's death Is sufllclent for the
sins of the whole world. It declares
that on account of this redemption ,
ultimately the resurrection of the dead
shall take place "all that arc In their
graves shall hear the voice of the Son
of Man and come forth. " It Is be
cause of the Divine intention that
there shall be a resurrection of the
dead that the Bible everywhere , both
In the Old and New Testaments , speaks
of those who have died , both good and
bad , as being "asleep , " and the prom
ise Is that "They that sleep In the
dust of the earth shall awake. "
Nor will they come forth to similar
conditions of sorrow that now sur
round us all. On the contrary , the
First Resurrection is to be composed
of the holy , the saintly , and they are
to be associated with their Redeemer
as his Bride and Consort , to assist In
t'ollvoring and restoring mankind.
Later the Imperfect , who have not had
their full trial , the great mass of man
kind , , will be brought forth , that they
may learn the ways of righteousness ,
that they may learn to know God , and
Jesus Christ , and in due time be up
lifted out of the conditions of sin and
death. Then will come the time men
tioned in our text , The Hereafter for
the world. How Joyful is the mes
sage , "There shall be no more death ,
neither sorrow , nor crying , nor dying ;
for the former things have passed
away. " Ah , how different is God's
proposition of a general uplift of the
worthy and their assistance back to
perfection to nil that was lost in
Adam. How different Is this from the
"doctrines of demons , " which have
perplexed us , which have divided
the Church of Christ into numberless
sects and parlies , and which have al
most driven us from Christ and the
Life , Not Immortality.
Thus we see that God's provision in
Christ for mankind Is that each Indi
vidual member of our race may yet , If
he will , attain to everlasting life
through the merit of Christ's sacrifice ,
and through the operation of his King
dom. Kadi may attain to all that was
lost In Adam and redeemed at Cal
vary ; namely , human perfection and
Edenlc blessedness. But additionally ,
note the blessings which God has pro
vided for the Church a spiritual bless
ing , a change of nature. These are
called out now from amongst men ,
that they "might be a kind of first-
fruits unto God of his creatures"
( James I , 18) ) . These are to be a "royal
priesthood , " associated with Christ ,
now in the priestly work of sacrificing ,
presenting their bodies living sacri
fices , holy and acceptable to God ,
which is their reasonable service. And
when the sacrlllelng shall be finished ,
they are to be joined with Christ in
the glories of his Kingdom , and share
with him In the work of blessing man
kind. These are the "elect" who , in
( Sod's providence , shall by and by up
lift and lilehs the non-elect. These are
the ones to whom will come the prom
ised "glory , honor and immortality. "
Our Redeemer brought to light , life
eternal for the world , and he also
brought to light immortality for the
Let us then be glad and rejoice In
the "Hereafter" that God has provid
ed , and let us search his Word more
diligently and more carefully than
ever , that we may know the things
which God lias freely given to us.

"HINDOO PRIEST" LURES GIRLS.
"Supreme Orn , " Arrested In New York ,
Says Chicago is Home.
Now York , May 1i. ( A sharp faced
young man who gives his name as
Pierre Bernard and says ho was born
and reared In Chicago was held In
$15,000 ball by Magistrate Breon to
day on a charge of abduction. Ber
nard , posing as "the reincarnation of
the supreme being , Om the Omnipo
tent. " has been operating so-called phy
sical culture schools throughout the
country and , It Is alleged , luring young
Xella llopp , 10 years old , 52S East
One Hundred and Forty-ninth street ;
Gertrude Lee , recently of Tacoma ,
Wash. , and another girl whoso name
was not disclosed , swore to the com
plaint against Bernard. After Ber
nard had been held the three girls ,
with Mrs. Hnnford of Seattle , Gertrude
Leo's sister , went to the district at
torney's olllco for the purpose of get
ting Bernard's case before the grand
jury as soon us possible.
Mrs. Hnnford reached Now York
yesterday. She had been In communi
cation with Zella Hopp , who hud writ
ten her that her sister was being held
a prisoner in Bernard's home , 2f > S
West Seventy-fourth street , a line resi
dence. As soon as she got off the train
Mrs. Huuford hurried to the homo of
Miss Hopp in the Bronx and enlisted
her aid In the plan she had formed.
They wont to the West Sixty-eighth
street police station and told Captain
Thompson what they know about Ber
nard. Mrs. Hanford said she had
known him in Scuttle and Tacoma ,
and that ho had enticed Gertrude Leo
to this city last fall. Captain Thomp
son , Detectives Calluhuu and Leonard ,
and the two women wont to Bernard's
home yesterday evening. Miss Hopp
said there was a private signal which
would admit thorn. This signal was
repeated three times , and then was an
swered by the snapping of the lock.
When the party entered the hall the
lower Iloor was deserted , but weird
chanting wus heard upstairs. Cuptnin
Thompson and his men hustled into
a room on the second floor , where they
found live girls , attired in men's bath
ing suits , and eight elderly men. The
men were on their haunches around a
rug in the middle of the floor , upon
which the girls were dancing under
the direction of Bernard , who had on
a long robe and hold a big crystal ball
In his hand.
The big policemen would have laugh
ed hud they not realized that there
was something serious behind the pro
ceeding. They took the names of the
girls and the eight elderly men and
allowed thorn to go. Then they es
corted Bernard to the station house.
Zella Hopp'told Magistrate Breen
that she met Bernard lust October.
Ho told her ho was a healer and In
formed her that she had heart trou
ble. She paid him $100 in advance for
"treatment" and $20 for a bathing suit
and a gymnastic outfit.
