A Needless Reminder.
OMAHA, Dec, 3. To the Editor of The
Bee.: I was much Interested In Rabbi
Cohn'a address last week, reported In
the Saturday Bee. In It he makes, how
ever, some notes In passing which seem
to me needlessly naive. Were they not
lapsing moments of his otherwise alert
and cultured mind? He turns to "non
Catholic Christians." (the speaker meant
non-Roman, no doubt, for true Chris
tianity and true Catholicity aro one and
the same, and the Catholic church Is the
"communion of faints," the whole body
of believers wherever found). Baya the
rabbi: "Non-Catholic- Christians in par
ticular should remember that the only
form of Christianity as 'it existed for at
least twelve centuries has been Roman
Catholic Christianity." This reminder
has no point historically or contempor
aneously, as the whole reason for the
Reformation In the sixteenth century was
and Is exactly that "twelve century" long
deviation from the apostolic and nearest
succeeding periods, a time reckoned by
the rabbi as equal to about 300 years. The
Reformation went back beyond the
"twelve centuries" after the fourth, back
to scripture. Nor ever nor anywhere was
there a Protestant who thought of any-1
thing else, so long a his faith centered
In the cardinal principle of the Reforma
tion In the sixteenth century, namely,
the return to scriptural faith. Protes
tantism recognizes no spiritual monitor
ship, nor owns any allegiance to the
bishops of Rome or of Constantinople.
It returns to the apostolic era and the
scripture. It venerates, too, the second
great spiritual period, that of the Re
formation, which has Its greatness be
cause of the return to scriptures and
away from the .church of those twelve
centuries. "Reformation," mark, not
"revolution," as some ecclesiastical writ
ers sometimes term it, lacking com
prehension of the spiritual and scriptural
principle of the Reformation.
No real Protestant In the world ever
needed that .reminder of the address, if
Ih reminder means an admonition of
fundamental spiritual import. But evory
Protestant needs a perpetual reminder
from the spirit of eternal truth as It Is
In Christ of the ever necessary return
to the Word of God. That New Testa
ment Gospel was, on the whole, a mark
of Christendom during the two centuries
following the apostolic era, and sporad
ically in Individuals after that time. Aye,
In very fact, the Protestant church re
minds herself emphatically that her
norm and guide Is alone the New Testa
ment message of the first century. Ever
and forever it is done with "traditions
of men" aa conscience authority. How
ever, evtn the second and third centuries
show here and there a beginning con
fusion of law and gospel. That confusion
laid the foundation for the legalistic
"twelve centuries" spoken of and which
finally came to a suppression of the cen
tral evangelical spirit of the Oospei,
making the Reformation ot tho sixteenth
century a dire necessity, on scriptural
grounds. The Reformation stood and
stands supremely for return to scripture.
The "twelve centuries" stood and stand
under scriptural review of this funda
mental Protestant principle. Useless to
admonish us, therefore, to remember that
twelvo century period. What we reject,
in its central spirit, we are done with.
"You give me," said the old philosopher,
Kant, to his man-servant, "my walking
stick, which I have Just put down over
there In the corner!"
This historical note I append to indi
cate the complete needlessness of the
reminder in that, address. That I other
wise Intensely appretlate the historical
pictures and summaries given by the
rabbi need not be said. Fpr the centml
principle of spiritual culture mnd histori
cal study, to which the sixteenth cen
tury Reformation gave tho first grand
universal liberating Impetus with Chris
tian content, after the "twelve cen
turies' of heirarchical domination, Is
that fearless reverence for historical
truth. That truth may be found in
Israel of the Old Testament time of
faith, the Roman church of the "twelve
centuries." before the Reformation, or
even Ir the Gentile religions that grop
ingly seek after God, if "they might
find Him." The daylight of scriptural
Christianity cannot be dimmed by the
candle-light rays that gleam wherever
the "sun of righteousness" does not
shine, Christ and His eternal Gospel.
But an admonition to non-Romanists
to remember the "twelve centuries," un
less It be wholly limited In its purport.
Is a repetition of the servant's needless
service to Kant. ADOLF HULT;
Hera Daniel's Propheoy Fulfilled.
NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. DeA. 2.-To'
the Editor o The Bee: I am so glad to
see another prophesy of Daniel being
fulfilled (when he said many should run
to and fro and knowledge should be In
creased) in the letter of Mr. Cohn In The
Bee a few days ago. It shows a search
ing of the scriptures with humbleness
and bravery (In these stirring times) for
expressing the truth found only In God's
word, that a Jew Is not necessarily of
the Semetlc race. These are times when
the word of God the Creator is so often
questioned by man, the creature. There
was once a nation ot Jews, " an holy
nation." precious in God's sight, but
when they, because of disobedience and
unbelief, were scattered through every
nation under heaven, as God had warned
them he would do, they have ceased to
be a nation.
One of the Semitic race Is a Jew only
as he has cut off sin from the heart
and has In so doing become an Israelite
(or In other words an "overcome:-") In
deed. The scriptures plainly say that
"he Is not a Jew who Is one out
wardly," as at the beginning In Abra
ham's time. The hidden man of the
heart declares whether or no one Is a
Jew. .God. says today as In former years,
"Woe unto you who aay ye are Jews
and dare not." Who, then, of the Gentile
race still- unrepentant and without the
wisdom that makes wise unto salva
tion would care to boast of being a Jew?
No one, surely.
God must have been speaking of the
Semetlo race to whom he gave his ora
cles. Vp to the time of Christ's death
they were a Jewish nation, the beloved
cf God. the natural olive tree, but when
worldllness caused the rejection of the
.sacrifice promlaed from Adam's fall,
not of bulla and goats, but the lamb of
God C'for without the spilling of blood
there Is no remission of sins"), a perfect
being without spot or blemish, the con
summation of the thing pointed forward
to from the time when Moses was given
the directions to make and caused to be
performed the work and ordinances of
the tabernacle. The Jews were not splr
lied c noug"i to see that the lamb without
spot for the sin offering wsa In the full
ness of tiini to be God's own son, lor a
rran born In sUn of earthh parents i nuld
never flit the place. But thanks be to
God: when Christ (but fer whose teach
ing God would have smitten the orth
with a curse) upon the cresa cried, '"It
Is finished," the true sacrifice, the real
lamb had been slain once for all, "and
the veil of the temple was rent from
top to bottom," signifying tliat God
would never more meet with tho Jewish
people as a nation, but that all, "both
Jew nnd Greek," might come to the
mercy seat through Christ; the veil rent
for us all. This veil In tho temple hung
between the holy and tho most "holy
place In the earthly tabernacle or sanc
tuary, where wo may all come, only
through Christ, the mediator, lest we be
consumed at his second coming, when he
comes to tako home his people, tho Jews.
So when God meets with his people
they are Indeed Jews, but they are of
"every nation, kindred and tongue. "The
one thing needful" Is the circumcision of
the heart. ELIZABETH BO WEN.

If you would smile a little more
And 1 would kinder be;
If you would stop to thnk before
You speak of faults you see:
If I would show more patience, too,
With all with whom I'm hurled,
Then 1 would help and so would you
To mako a better world.
If yon would cheer your neighbor more
And I'd encourage mine:
If you would linger at his door
To say his work is fine.
And 1 would stop to help him when
His Hps In frowns are curled,
Both you and I'd bo helping then
To make a better world.
But Just ns long as you keep still
And plod your selfish way,
And I rush on nnd heedless kill
Tho kind words I could sav,
Whllo you nnd I refuse to smllo
And keep our gay flags furled.
Some one will grumble all the while
That It's a gloomy world.
