PARCELS POST IS COMING.
The suggestion ef ) the' president and
of the postmaster general for a par-
eels post experiment has been ght'ti
the endorsement of the senate coin-
mittee , which has reported a bill for
testing the scheme for a year on such
inral routes as the postmaster general
' may designate. The plan Is for a
limited parcels post , allowing postmasters -
masters to accept packages for ele-
5 livery on rural routes out of Ills otilce.
L The News bolleves the parcels post
1 is coming anil tliat , like the rural
' route , it is coming to stay. The plan
1 lias proven eminently successful in
1 foreign countries anel there Is a genu-
2 ine demand among the people of
j America for it today.Ve do not be
lieve that it will work injury to the
country merchant if he will take ad
vantage of its facilities.
T l The limited- plan to be tried , for in
stance , will be of positive benefit tei
the country merchant. It will permit
him , at those towns where the scheme
is put into operation , to deliver pack
ages to farmers by mail which IK
can not deliver today at all. A farm
er may telephone to the grocer in
town , order eleven pounds of sugai
and have it delivered at his door the
. next morning for a very small cost
t It will help both the farmer and the
e merchant , making It easier to do busi
t' ness all around.

0 pounds can be sent In this way am
s hundreds of thousands of packages
are s nt in tills system each year.

The NpenUor declared that ClirlMtUui

pointed back to the beginning of the
ChrlHtlnn Kru nnd declared that soon aft
er that tlmo a controverny arose In thw
Church nnd IIH a rewilt great confusion
has since prevailed. Al a time when
there were no such Hlhlen as wo now pos
sess , with concordances , marginal refer
ences , etc. ; at a" time , too. when Urn
masses were' unable to read , disputation
ran high. The .lews took the ground thut
JesiiH was nn Impostor who did his work *
by the power of the fallen angels.
Some Christians took the oppoMtn ex
treme that Je.ins wes not merely n Son.
hut was God the Father himself , who for
a time appeared amongst men , and In
false humility styled himself the Hon of
God when , In reality , he was "the Father
of lights. " Homo carried this thought to
the extreme , teaching that there are thren
Gods who arc In unison , In harmony , IH
oneness of spirit or work Others held
that there Is but one God , but that In
somu unexplalnnblo manner ho divide.- ,
himself into thren parts equal In power
and glory. Still other . rejecting thcso ex
tromc views , claimed that .leans had nn
prehuman existence , that Joseph was hi *
father , etc
I Hut all the while , said Pastor lliisiill ,
the Scriptures bore the plain testimony
I that Jesus was the beginning of the Cre
ation of God , the First-Horn , the Loffo.i.
the Ilr.st Divine expression.
"The Word Made Flesh. "
The Scriptures explain Hint "the Logo *
was made flesh and dwell amongst mer
and we beheld his glory , the ulory of the
only begotten of the Father. " He thu ?
"took upon him the form of a servant"
"that he by the grace of God might ta t
death for every man.1' Having finished
the work given him by the Father , the
latter raised Jesus from the dead by hl -
( Jehovah's ) own power , exalting Jesuw
again to the spirit plane of being with
nddecj glory-"far above angels" d'hlllp-
plans II. 7-'J ) .
We read thnt God senl his Son Into th" .
world to redeem the world , but It Is a ml ?
take to suppose that his coming wjs : com
pulsory ; thnt the suffcrJiiBs of Christ
were enforced On the contrary. th -
Scrlplures declare that the heavenly Fa
ther set before his Son , the Klrst-Ilegot-
ten of all creation , the promise of a glori
ous reward (1) ( ) Ho should hnve the pleasure -
uro of doing the Father's will ( " ) Al
though this would cost htm n great acrl-
( Ico. nevertheless. It would hrlng him the-
great distinction of being for a thousand
years the Mediator between God nnd m n. .
the great .Messiah and Deliverer of m.in-
' kind from the reign of sin and death. (3/ (
Additionally , he should be returned from
the earthly conditions to the heavenly
conditions , ns n spirit being , and with
Th'e Trinity of the Bible ,
i Various are the views cnllcd the doe-
1 trine of the Trinity. The Rlhle does teach
that "to us there In one God the Father ,
of whom are nil ( hlngs. and one Lord
Jesus Christ , by whom are nil things ami
we by him " and thnt there Is one hnly
Spirit of the Father , n holy power , will ,
mind , energy and that this Is the mind of
Chrl.st. by virtue of his full submission of
bis will to do the Father's will. This hob-
Spirit Is als-o to be the spirit , mind or wil !
of the Church.
All Christians must of necessity believ *
In the Father and In the Son and In the
holy Spirit nnd must recognize that these
ar not contrary Influences that they are
at one , In full harmony. Hut the un-
scrlpturnl theory of some that there are
three Gods In one perSon , nnd the oppo
site theory of others that'there Is one Qort
In three persons these errors of the Dark
Ages me not only Irrational but wholly un-
crlptural. Not only does the Hlble not
contain the word Trinity , but neither doc.s
It contain the thought of Trinity.
In the seventh century this dogma of
three Gods In one God and one GoJ In
three Gods had become widely accepted ,
and. because there was no Soilptur * t >
support It , some one originated a little
Bcrlpture to cover the point , adding to
the Word of God , contrary to the warn
ings of the Scriptures. 1'astor Russell
advised his audience to take their pens-
nnd strike out the Interpolated words ,
which are not to be found In any Greek
. manuscript of earlier date than the seventh -
enth century. He cited the following words
> to be marked off In 1 John. chap. 5 , vs. 7
. ' "In heaven , the Father , the Word nnd the
f Holy Ghost , and there three uro one. "
Also In vs. 8 , the words , "and tfferu ace
' three that bear witness In earth. "
l j No scholar denies that thet-e words ar -
r spurious. Why then should we recognize-
J and teach them , confusing out-pelves and
others thereby ? When they are stricken
out the passage reads smoothly and beau-
. tlfully and In harmony with the retnaln-
der of the Scriptures. How absurdly the
passage reads In our common version ,
1 telling us that the Father and the Son
f and holy Spirit are bearing witness In
. heaven that Jesus Is the Son of God ! Do
, not the angels know this without any witness -
" ness being given ?
Honor the Son as the Father.
Pastor Russell quoted his text so as to
show the force of the Greek original , the
I.OKOS wns a Hod who from the beginning ;
was with tlic < ! oil who never had n begln-
t nlng. The word God. both In the Hebrew
and In the Greek , signifies a mtghty out.
In the Old Testament Scriptures both an
gels and men are styled clohlm , gods , when
occupying high positions or being special
ly deputized ns Dlvlno agents. The Apes
tle has the same thought when he speaks
of "The God and Father of our Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ. "
