I Teaching a sermon on the subject of the
Italy earthquake. Rev. Ralph H. Houaemaa
of Caetnhar Sireet rresb-terlan church
yesterday morning likened those people who
bulid their honu-s on the siojies of belching
volcanoes or in the region often visiu.-d by j
such catastrophes to the mun a ho dis-
putcs a grade crossing with an express
train or hatidles loose powder whiis sniuk-
"It is a settled principle in our court
of Justice that men contributing by witlul
neglige noe to their own undoing oannot re
sort to the c!ri law for redress." said Rev.
Mr. Houseman. "Nir can such m n reason
ably assign the results to 'an act of God.
They must assign It to their lack if pre-
caution. So long as men will build upon the'
siopes of belching volcanoes or in regions
where earthquake phenomena are an essen
tial part of the earth's development, the re
sults are not wholly of Gods providence,
but of man's folly.
"But with no unkindly thought of chid
ing the unfortunate creature wno were
on earth's forbidden" ground, let us turn to
ourselves. A great spirhual lesson is taught
us. Are we building character and eternal
bejies upon Immovable foundations?
"This is not a runaway world. Amidst
the evident and mysterious mixup in
earth's fierce forces successively at w Dik
mowing down the race there i an over
whelming vitality of life. Humanity live
on under a great convoy, win we Instruc
tions vary. To all alike He offers leading
to the 1-adahle and instruction to The tsut en
able. After the earthquake and after the
fire and afier the pestilence and after the
flood of jr-eat waters the t!l! small voice' !
of the Divine speaks to listening ears. Of
all this array of divine permissions of
nstural power the quiet voice is the most
e af the TsksswaMe Thtage.
"When such a frightful catastrophe as
that which occurred in Italy falls upon a
nmiulnliR section. inRtinctfvelv all who be-
merciful Providence fly like
Milton s angels, TO Justify the ways
To Justify the ways of!IOT Lml11' 1 mw l " "i'""e
God to man.' Just as of oldT In our Lord's
life on earth, the fall of the Tower of
SiJoam crushing out the lives of all that
were within its walls caused deep search
ings of heart in the holy city, so the dis
cussion of this great calamity aJls for
editorial columns and sermons innumerable.
"But no mere man can Justify to man
God's permissions and executions. He oper- j
ates Jn a realm beyond man s abllitv to
fullv comprehend. To analyse God s m'nd
r.fl motive, and loudlv nroclaim that God
must tie bound by the reasoning of the con
clusions reached is to assume mental acu
men and eternal perspective tjtterly for
eign to man's present endowment. Man is
not to let his head grow diny and his
heart hard by asking the "why" of every-
thing unusual that occurs. B.mie things hold
within them rxplanations reserved for a
sphere other than the temporal and the
human. That man Is foolish who walks de
liberately into a dreary labyrinth of dark
ness without a clue te lead him Into the
light. But, on the other hand, there art
some practical moralizing which suggest
themselves by this calamity, and these may
be helpfully passed upon.
"It Is mistake to add one man's sorrows
to that of another. If the Ki.lXK' who per
ished last Monduy had died singly and
scattered throughout the earth, then death
would have no national or historical sig
nificance. As many do die every three days.
Without belittling the poignant elements In
this calamity it is evident to any mind that
no one dying suffered measurably greater
w lhauBunCi r others were dvins
j jmu,. art personal not distrlbuTlve. As
In innumerable wrecks and holocausts it is
not perceptibly harder for any one to die
because others art dying. It is a mistake,
then, to exaggerate the agonies of such a
calamity by adding one man's agronies to
those of another."
