What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Topic—“ Christianity the Universal Religion.” I present you-a view of the religr iou8 world. It is a large view, a pan orama of all religions. Its first ap­ pearance is a scene of confusion: the Christian before his cross, the Brah­ min in his temple, the Mohammedan in hiB mosque, the Pagan before his shrine. But like the universe itself it is unity in variety. _ Your attention is called to,three features of this view: . 1st. Thè fundamental principles of Christianity upon which all other religious systems are founded. 2d. The origin of Christianity and of all religious systems is identical. 3d. Universal religion will finally be expressed by the Christian system of life. Observing the first feature, we find the following beliefs in all religious creeds: The existence of God is recognized. The intelligent Chris­ tian sees God a personal, intelligent spirit, the soul of the universe. To the Brahmin there are 330,000,000 of reflections of God in the world; but blinded by their superstitions thoy do not see Him at all. He, himself, is termed by them as the “Eternal Check.” W e see in the “ allor to thè unknown God” of the\ Greeks the same ignorance of God. Pagan idolatry is an effort - o f the natural mind to find and express God. This is the only explanations òf their in­ numerable number of duties. Immortality is a fundamental be­ lief of all religions. Behold the Christian, the Mohammedan, the Budhist and the Pagan, all gazing up into heaven I They await a future life. The Christian seos the futuro a continuation of the present, in which he may enjoy the development of his powers by study of God’s thoughts; the ministering to his brother’s en­ joyments and the éxperience of the divine love, while others, blinded by the ignorance of their present limita­ tions, see the future as victorious battle-fields, happy hunting grounds or unbounded opportunity for sen­ sual pleasure. The Hindoo’s con­ ception of immortality is an endless transmigration of the soul. A ll religiona recognize sin and the necesoitv for an atonement. The Christian reads in history, both sacred and<profane, that an atonement has been made by the death of Jesus Christ. The heathen has not read this. But why do his temples run with blood 1 Why does he sacrifice bis animals, his children, his own life? Because his conscience or re­ ligious nature tells him he has vio­ lated law and that something must be done to enable God to be “just and a justifier of the sinner.” Be­ hold the anguish of the Hindoo mother as she caresses for the last time her darling babe and casts it to the monsters of the deep I Unknown to her is the Christ atonement, but the principle that made His atone­ ment necessary is seen in this soul that is only lighted by the ljght of nature. One part of mankind believe that anatonementhasbeen made, another, that one has to be made while the rest are trying to make one. I t is a universal doctrine that our future welfare depends upon our present conduct. Every religion has it heaven and its hell. The Esqui­ maux idea of future punishment is expreese 1 by the thought of a life in some ice-bound regions, because to them, cold is the great symbol o f suf­ fering. This doctrine is seen in the transmigration theory whose adher­ ents teach their children that wbethor their souls bave a future existence in re-incarnations that will make them happy or miserable, depends on how they live in the present. A ll the great religious systems of the world believe that' God - has or will reveal himself in tho personality * t ' -, l \* t > of some man. ‘ .“ The Gods have come down in the likeness of men,” , is the cry of of ' Lystra ' and this cry hàa'ari echó in The Hèart of all ^ L ; ; *//-v » ’ J mankind; and this “ desire of all nations” finds an answer in tho per- sou Christ Jesus. The origin of all religions is tho same. Thoy did not come down from heaven or from across the seas, but sprung up out of the depths of the human soul. (It is truo that the answer to man’s religious nature has been mot from hoaven )*Tbe inspired writer has given us a picturo of the story of the garden of Eden. As Eden was tho birth-place of man, so it is that of religion. As mankind began to disporse over tho earth, not only their knowledge, language, laws, manners and customs began' to di­ versify, but they began to give differ­ ent expressions to tho religious prin ciples and instincts of thoir nature. The present forms of religion are the outgrowths or offshoots of other roligious systems. The Roman my­ thology is the outgrowth of the Greek; Buddism is the offshoot of Brahmins, and Christianity has come to us through the Mosaic and Patri­ archal forms of worship. Religion, co eternal with man, starting with him from Eden, has followed him over land and sea, continent and island, and today you can Btart in Christian America or Europe, Bud­ hist, Brahmin or Mohammedan Asia, or Pagan Africa, and trace his foot­ prints back to tho birthplace of the race. Universal religion will finally have one expression and will bo Christian­ ity. This will be true because tho principles of all religions are tho same and because these principles have had one, and only one, perfect expression and that was in the life of Jesus Christ. It is admitted by the greatest of men that the Christ char­ acter was a porfect oxpiession of life, that ho lived as God would live if ho wore a man and as man should live if would live tho diviuo life. That man may give perfect ex­ pression to his roligious oaturo or that all religions may give one per­ fect expression to the roligious inter­ ests and principles of life, it is only nocessary that Christ be rightly pre­ sented to all the world, and H e has promised then to “ draw all men unto Him.” And as mon allow their bet­ ter noture to respond to tno mag­ netism of tho Christ character, which all men more or less when in His prosenco, thon religion will have but one expression and Christ ill take the plauo of Brauinin, Budda and all these lesser lights will be eclipsed by tho shining of thu Sun of Right­ eousness. Nineteen centuries ago this Son of Heron arose on tho hills of Palestine. During tho first hundred years his light, though somewhat dimmod by clouds of iguoranco, spread over Western Asia and Europo, melting the highest forms of heathen mythol­ ogy. Duriug the 10th, 17th and 18th centuries His rays have covered the western hemisphere. Within the hundred years His light has reached the remotest islands. They have penetrated the clouds of darkest Africa, Some day this Son of Right­ eousness will be the “ L ight of the world.” Today the history of Christ is read in 350 languages. His dan plea havo 20,000 missionary centers and 40,000 teachers and moro than 3,000,000 who have accepted Christ aa their pattern of life. Within our life time Japan has adopted a constitution modeled after Christian nations. Many members of its parliament and of its leaders of thought are Christians. China has just instituted a system of education similar to that obtained in Christian America, giFen to them by a Chris­ tian minister-and teacher. The.Christian Queen of Madagas­ car lately declared to her 350,000 Christian subjects her unbounded faith in Christ. Every Lord’s Day gathers 100,000 people in tho Feejee Islands to hear the gospel of Christ. The Christian population of India has 'doubled in tho lost decade. A t this rate of progress, at. the close of this century there will be 120,000,000 fol; lowers of Christ .in;' that heathen land. ■ ■ . -- *■ - V-'.WVi/, , Look a short distance down the ages to come! The earth is enveloped in light. Not a cloud is to bo soon. It is tbo “ now earth.” Broken idols and ruined temples remind us that idolatry is a theory ofjho past. Tho cross is seen on ovoryTiill; tho Bible is in every home, knowledge iu every mind, Christian love in every heart. It is the mollonium! The kingdoms of the world aro the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ. Wo learn from this view that re­ ligion is universal. I f universal man has a religious nature, religion is a part of life and truth; for wo must believe nature or reject all; and as religion is truth and the Christ life is a perfect expression of this truth “ wo know in whom wo havo believed” and that “other foundation can no man lay.” Say not, then, that Christianity is an unphilosophical invention of sup­ erstitious man—it is the profoundest philosophy. Say not that Christian­ ity is provincial or temporal, it is uniyorsal and eternal. Governments will chango but tho Christianity is founded upon a perfect lifo. Nations will rise and fall but tho Kingdom of Christ ie unchangeable. Christianity is the work of God, tho hope of man. Christianity and humanity and D i­ vinity one evermoro.

Washington, July 14.—Should Cuba see fit to complain of tho mat­ ter, Consul E. S. Gragg, at Havana, will bo rocallod from that post for having written of tho Cubans, as pub­ lished in Chicago this morning that “Uncle Sam might as well try to make a whistle out of a pig’s tails as to try to do anything with these people.” This expression appeared in a lot- tor from General Bragg to his wife at Fond du Lac, Wis., and sorno how found its way into print. Senor Quosada was not in Wash­ ington tonigut and it could not be lo&rned whothor or not ho had boon notified of the incideut by his gov­ ernment or instructed to tuko any action in tho case. There is Bomo giound for boliof that tho comment may berosouted by the Cuban government. T w o F r e e S c h o la r s h ip s . LKTUDRWQB COAL Leave ordors at tolophono ottico. Hello, No. 42. G.
