Lecture of a Series.
IS STILL A LIVING EXAMPLE
Chrysostom's Mother Planted in His
Heart Divine Seeds Christendom
Needs Such Mothers Today -Career
As Monk, Preacher and Bishop an
Interesting Study Greatest Unin
spired Preacher -Other Sermons. "
At the First ProsbyterWn church lust
niu'ht Kev. James McLeod, D, D., the
pastor, delivered the iirst of u series of
lectures treating of the creat Johns of
church history. List night's labjeot
was "John Cliryt.atom, the Evening
star ot Barly Christianity," Tut test
wa from Acts sl:90, "The disciple
were called Christian lirst at Antlooh "
The eerie will be continued every
Sunday evening h follows: John
Muss, the grout Bohemian, John Wy
clitTe, the morning star of the reform
tion , John Calvin, the great theologian ,
John Knox, the Scottish reformer ; John
Weslev, the founder of methodisui ,
John Banyan, the glorious dreamer.
Dr MvLeod preface the lecture by
saying, "Charon history is not a ptu
Uv study, but it it an important stu.lv
It is the story of Cod, dealing with
man, and of man's dea'iu with God;
it is christian philosophy teiching by
txatnple; it brings before us in an of
fctiy and praotlOll way, the powt
and the glory of the gospel of Christ."
Continuing he said.
The Hible U not only a historic b uk. but
it is it book largely made up of hletory; it
is a book of biography in which both mn
and grace ro plainly aud faithfully illus
trated, it holds np before us notable exam
pltf of saintly nan and women that we can
be en Con raged, aud, on the other hand, it
'resents us with those who have tinned
griSTiOOSly aud who mads shipwreck of the
laith, that we nay be warned aud avoid
their sin and folly, Thus tbo truth of the
gospel hi broiuit to our attention not In
the abstract, but in the concrete.
1 thiuk it is no libel on the Christian
puit ic to say that it does not give to
church history that attention aud promin
ence t tiu-u it importance deserves. Tue
apostles did not forget the history of the
cuurcb, nor the liVSS of the fathers and
saiuts ot the olden time. Ou the Contrary
they held up those old Worthies as exam
ple ot faith aud patience and heroism
men ana wouieu who would sutler death
i ather thau deuy the troth) in wuotn was
illustrated the power anj perseverance of
ti ue iaith; whose faith was so steadfast
aud so mighty that through it they eub
aued kingdoms, wrought rightoonsuoss,
waxed valient iu fight aud turned to flight
the umtes of the alieus. And it apostles
and evangelists could and did preach
1 hrist's goiiel, when they referred to the
1 atriarcnee and prophets and fathers aud
saiuts who preceded them, sure.y we iu
the Christian pulpit ought to be able now-n-Inysto
preacu that same gospel when
we talk about the fathers and saints and
martyrs and couquorers of pjst-apostohc
and mure moJeru tiiuet.
It is with this object in view that I hive
selected as a suitable tnoino for this pulpit,
a few of the cuurch fithers, who in the
sphere of religion were mighty men of
valor, who left their impress not ouly npon
the church, bus upou the world; aud iu
whose lives the power of divtue grace was
signally manifested. That it may please
lied to use these addresses for His own
glory and for our good, is my earnest
The tlrst of the fathers to whom your
attention is invited is St. John Curysos
t'in. HIS EARLY HJME.
All christians hive ipjJ reaioi t3 ra
member Antioch. It was in Antioch they
got their name, and, most 'ikely, the nnme
was given in derision. But if the wicked
inhabitants of Antioch once despised and
mocked the christian name, the time came
when they counted it worthy of tLo high
est honor. Even in the days of ths apos
tles a christian church was established
there, and for a long tune, it was a ceutre
of christian influence. It had its martyrs
and conquerors and it endured bitter per
secutions for Christ's sake. It came to be
called "The City of God.'' It gave to the
church an Ignatius, and when the empire
was fast declining, it gave to the christian
world John Chrysostom.
Chrysostom was bom iu 31. Ills parents
were Christians. When only an Infant
his father died, but he was well care I for
by his pious mother, the saintly Ancbnsa.
She planted in his young mind ami heart
tne seeds of divine truth, and she lived to
see her noble son u consecrated servant of
"What mothors these Christians have:'
said the tutor of Chrysostom, the heathen
sophlnt, Libanius. He tried to overthrow
tho faith of his brilliant pupil and to enlist
him on the side ot heathenism, hut, tbnn
iod. he failed. He was lud-ed a great
man, honored and eloquent, and, as Oib
buu tell us, he was "tho last glory of ex
piring Paganism. ' Hut a faithful Chris
tian mother's prayors were weightier than
the most eloquent appeals ot the most
distinguished orator of bis day, and the
faith of Chrysostom remained steadfast.
He clung to his mother's Ood and Savior.
OOHTLUtOTI for christian mothers.
Yea, well might Libanius say: "What
mother these Christians have." The
church of Ood owes mach to christian
mothers The great Oregory, the great
AogaatlaS and C hrysostom, in some re
spects the greatest of the three, were,
humanly speaking, saved to thn chnrch
by their mothers. They were praying
mothers. Ood heard their prayers.
Nonas! Monica! Anlhuaal What saintly
mothors they were! And what a legacy
they left to the chnr h in the sons they
trained Op for the Lord,
And surely Christendom today needs
praying mothers and praying fathers. It
need christian parents whose chief aim iu
life for their children is not wealth and
worldly position, hut to tram them up to
love and serve their Uod and Savior Tnore
never was a time in tho nistory of this
nation when her son aud daughters
needed more careful training. Mothers,
christian mother, pray for yonr sons;
and sons remember your mother's prayers
ml your mother's love that no love eave
that of Uod is so nnHelilsh.
In re'pert to secular and religious in
struitiou ChrvHVKtoin kit I ths Lett teachers
in Antlocb. His mother and tho good
BiSbOR M"letius were his religious tench-r-.
He knew his Hible so well that il ll
said he could repeat the whole of it from
memory. Thn Herved him a good purpose
when be became n minister of the (iospel.
'I hough his homo influence were pure
aud sweet ho lived Iu a horribly Wicked
city. Autiocb, like the empire, was in a
tato of loathsome dogoueracy, and even
professing christians joined their heathen
neighbors in their abominable orgies.
Moreover, through the influence of Con
Htnntlnr, tho church and tbo state hid
become too closely allied. It Is n question
which Is the greater evil, the church
ruled by the utate, or the state ruled by
the church. We need not discus the
question, but snrely we ought to be pro
foundly thankful that In this laud ohurch
and tato are so related that each snows
her own place, ami I maV ndd that the
people are bouud that each hill keep her
place; and my the day never come when
either will rule the othor.
Contrary'to hi mother's wish chrysos
torn went into exile religious exile he
became au anchorite. He tried to ilee from
the sinful scene of a wicked city, but be
could not flee from himself. Ilissiu found
him out. lie fasted and prayed aud re
pented und subjected himself to horried
self-torture. Hut hn wns uot an idlo.gooil-for-nothlug
monk. He was studious; he
was, moreover, "a chosen vassal of Ood,"
to rebuke sin and to preach iu Antioch
and Couslantlople throughout the ages the
unsearchable riches of Christ.
It is as n preacher of the gospel that
Chi-ysostom has won his title to immort
ality. Ho would very likely have beeu a
iawyer, as would tho groat apostles of the
(leutiles, had not Ood ordered It other
wise. He left his cave, like a sensible
man, returned to tho world, mingled with
men aud tried to do theui good. He be
came a deacon, studied thoology, wrote
lettore aud made himself generally use
ful, as every good deacon and elder
ought to do. He diil not Login to preach
until he was -III years old, but when he
did begin he made Ills mark. He could
nut be hid. Perhaps it is no exaggeration
to say that iu some respects he bus liev-'r
been surpassed by any uninspired preach
sr. Iu his knowledge of human nature, iu
Ins Christ like zeal, iu his fruitful and
glowing imagination, iu bis lofty and
tnttslnsd eloquence, m his boldues aud
fenrlnstttSS and in his blood earnestness
he was without a rival. He was plenti
fully dlvsrsad, wo have baan told, with
the hate of bate, the scoiu of scorn, and
the love of love. He was always brave,
though not always meek; hu was always
honest: uot uot always wise.
When Chrysostom preached In llasilica,
the crowd docked to hear hint, and they
always heard something worth hearing.
They always heard the gospel, whether it
Wax m the stern rebuke of sin, or iu tho
glorious hopes which cluster around the
crown of Christ. Ho did not mluce mat
ters' He was no V. Paciug-H.ith Ways.
He knew ho was liviug where "fashion
was the only law, ami pleasure I ho only
pursuit," whore the arts of luxury wore
BOnored, anil where the serious and manly
virtues worn tht subject of ridicule.
Hence he did mil fail to tell the people of
their sin aud to warn tboiu of their
Perhaps no preaoher tinot the Apostles
ever wit hied more power over an audience
than did he when he preached his cele
brated soruioiis ou the "Statues." Th
euraged emperor wn led to pardon tho in
suit that had been offered to him and his
wife, and the guilty people were led to
cry to tiod for mtroy.
t'lir.YSosTo.M, TBI BISHOP
Obrysostom was neither a great nor a
trustworthy theologian. Ho was in all
essential points thoroughly evangelical,
bu: held views iu regard to iiianiage
prayers lor the dee I, prayers to saints, and
tho sacraments, which those better in
structed could uot tndorSO . Like other
great preachers, he sometimes allowed his
imagination to ruu away with his Judg
ment, aud instead of biblical truth and
sober sense, he gave to his hearers pol
ished rhetoric and magnificent nonsense.
Leaving hit people in Antioch bo wat
transferred to Couttuutlnople, where he
was installed as its archbishop, or patri
arch. Hut he sunk the patriarch in the
preacher aud no used his authority, but
always sincerely aud with an eye single to
Ood's glory. The tufauioiis Eutropius mid
ths beautiful but scarely lrss infamous
Eudoscia became his bitter enemies. He,
i-i .iinc 1 Eutropius as only he could do it
aud tie was as msrcHSM towards the beau
tiful Ludoscia as w us Jobu Kuox towards
the lovelv ijueeii of Scots. The noble
Human like the uoble Scotchman would
not allow either beauty or tears to swerve
him one iota from the path of rectitude.
The fidelity of Chrysostom led to his ex
communication aud baiiishmeut, ami his
bttuishtheut led to his death. He suffered
b-causeho would uot drllle his coiireieuo.
Ho died an exile, far away from home iu a
lonely place. Aud yet he wss not alone
for Uod WM with him. His last words
wore, "Glory to Ood or all thiugs." He
was buried m the place of his oxile, but
thirty years afterward his bmei wro
brought back to Constantinople where be
reposes in peace until the morning of the
resurrection. Thus lived and died the
"Evening Star of early Christianity. " His
greatest honor is that amid astounding
corruption he remained pure sad cleau,
ami preached the glorious gospalof ths
blessed Ood. Because he was wise to win
souls, he shall shine as tho brigntneis of
tho firmament, ami because he turned
many to righteousness ho will shlue us the
suis for ever aud over.
