I ,. Babbatb is not of human origin. It
was loade for man, bnt not by man. a to I
did not mnko it for Christians only, or .'or
Jews only, or for some men lived in the
long f ast, lie made it for man, tha; Is,
for mankind, f ir the v. hole luimati race
and f&r all time. True, tbe Lord of the
Babbatb saw tit to change tbo Babbalb
from tbo seventh to the first day of the
week. He did so f.-r a very good ri ns., ,.
in the flrat day of the week our Lord rose
fi ei. the deaJ, and 111 honor of that great
event in the history of ridetuptlrwi, th"
day WM changed
liod designed the Sit tit i.i t ll to benellt
man in every re-peel, in body, soul and
spirit. He designed it iw n day of re.it for
both body and mlBOt, a day for meditation
and prayer and devotion and wcr-lilp and
for religious instruction; a, day for doing
deeds of kinduess and mercy; n day on
which to cultivate family ailed ion and
thus make life purer and sweeter and hap
pier; a day for Christian fellowship and
lor heavenly communion; a day on which
to anticipate and prepare for that rest
which remains for the people of ( Sod.
rag HAY'S OUI.KIATIOSS.
If this l th? design of the Lord's Uay,
then our obligation to use It for that pur
pose ami thus lokeep it holy is self-evident.
The Babbatb was msde fur man,
not that hu might abuse it, hut that he
might keep it as Cod desi ; n d it to be
kept. It is true that Christians differ,
among themselves, as they iiaui always
differed, toncblng weTfersoJto way in which
the Lord's Uay BnOUlo be kept, as well as
touching the ground of its obligation.
Hut uo Christian teacher has ever ques
tioned the nacredtioss of the Sabbath or
urged its desecration. Indeed, one of the
ablest advocates of "tho religious
non-obaerranot of tho Babbatb"
declared that any man who BBS
disposo with the Snhbath must bo
umnzingly "holy and spiritual," while the
man who "still unholy mid unspiritnnl
who would dispells:) with it, is a man who
would fain be wiser than his Maker." lie
further says tbiifno man who knows him
self but will gladly and joyfully use the
institution. No man who knows tbe need
of hi6 brethren will wantonly desecrate It,
or recklessly hurt, oven their scruples re
specting its observance." Thcso are
weighty words, and they are all the more
weighty coming from such a source.
lint still tho Sunday question is beset
with ..iiit.-i.it t Modern society is ao
constituted that some men must work on
Sunday. True, they car. stop work on
Bttnday if they ehooae, but mey must
work if they would keep their situation
and support their families. While lail
roitds aro run on Sunday, and whilo fur
naces bio kept burning on Sunday, and
whilo newspapers are printed and sold on
Sunday, aud whilo saloons are kept o;ien
un Sunday a great many men must work
ou Sundav. but if it cau be proved
that it la necessary to run any
one of these institutions on Bonday, then
lam ready to maintain that every one of
the sons of toil who were forced to work
on Sunday is entitled to ono day every
week as a day of tOlt, If ho cannot have
Suud.iy then let bim have Monday or Sat
urday or Bomo other day. My point i
that Qod has given every man a babbatb,
and that every man is entitled to the Bab
bath that (i aj has given him; and, more
over, tho Lord's day is jost us long as any
other day of tho week. It is a day of
twenty -lour hours. Kvery man in entitled
to this seventh portion of tunc. Both his
physical and Ins religious nature needs it,
and it aay employer, be that employer an
Individual or a corporation, deny to tho
laborer a day of rest, or if any workman
wufuiiy deprives himself of the blessings
oi the day of KBt, he thereby - ins against
itod, agafnat himself, and for the am he
will bine to ren ler an account to the Lord
of i he Babbatb.
Hod never intended Ilia day to ben day
of gloom and sadness. (Ju the contrary, it
ought t" ho a day of religious jjv and glad
iioss. "This is th" day the Lord hath
made, we w ill rejoice and lie glad ill it,"
ought to do tho language mi l tbe experi
