"Atterbury System" I
"leans Smart Clothes,
For His Sermon Yesterday Morning
Ho Discussed "Christian Liberty."
If tho Principles of Liberty Set
Down by Peter and Pftul Were
More Cordially Embraced It
Would Be an Unspeakable Bless
ing to Society in General and to
the Church in Particular.
"Christian Liberty" wns the topic dis
cussed by Rev. Juntas MoLeod, D. D.,
In tho First Presbyterian church yes
terday morning.
Ilo took for his text tho words: "Por
brethren, ye have been called unto lib
erty! only use not liberty for nn occa
sion to tho llosb, but by love serve one
another," from Gal., v:13, and "As free
and hot using your liberty for 11 cloak
of maliciousness, but as the servants ot
God," 1 Peter, 2:1C. Dr. McLeod said:
In these sentences, tho two great apos
tles Paul and Peter teach substantially
the same doctrine. Thero was a time
when Peter hold n widely different opin
ion. He and his "beloved brother, Paul,"
collided at Antloch, and tho contention
between them was riultu sharp. At that
time, as on other occasions, tho Incautious
and Impetuous Peter was at fault, and
Paul "withstood him to the face, because
bo was to be blamed." Peter was wilting
to sacrifice a great principle, for tho
sake of conforming to a Jewish prejudice.
Paul, on tho other hand, stood up for
Christian liberty and for Christian toler
ation; mid ho opposed with much spirit,
and with unanswerable logic, tho narrow
and unchristian doetilno which Peter bad
advocated and commended. The contro
versy, though animated, was altogether
brotherly. It left no sting In the hearts
of tho apostles.
Peter saw his error, and ho acknowl
edged It; for, In after yours, be, with that
outspoken candor and magnanimity which
characterized him, not only endorsed
Paul's teaching, but ho almost adopted
his language. Paul says; "Brethren, ye
have been called unto liberty; only use
not liberty for an occasion to tho llcsh,
but by love servo one another','; and Peter
only echoes Paul's doctrine when ho says:
"As free, and not using your liberty as
a cloak for maliciousness, but as tho
servants of God."
in this, mid In other controversies and
strifes which occurred between the dis
ciples and apostles of our Lord, we have
abundant proof that they were men of
"like passions" with us. This sainthood
did not always lilt them above tho in
firmities to which human nature Is lia
ble. If such saints as Paul and Peter, or
Paul and Barnabas bad their misun
derstanding and their quarrels, need we
wonder If stood and honorable men are
found nowadays who differ widely on
points of Christian doctrine, and who. at
limes, allow personal and party feelings
to enter Into their sharp contentions If
St. Peter fell Into serious error on the
subject of religious liberty, Is It any won
der of men who aro far from being saints,
have fallen Into grievous error oh the
subject of civil liberty.
Tho principle laid down by both Paul
and Peter Is one that no Christian can
afford to ignore. It is a foundation doc
trine. Jirothciiy love and good citizenship
ore built upon it. Tho doctrine may bo
stated thus: Instead of using our Chris
tian liberty as a law for selfishness, or
as a means of oppressing our neighbors,
or as a "cloak ot maliciousness," we,
"as tho servants of God," ought to be
loyal to His truth, and "by love, servo
one another."
If this doctrine were morp cordially em
braced and more widely practiced, It
would be an unspeakable blessing to so
ciety in general, and to tho church In
In our own highly favored land, so
ciety is today suffering grievous Injury
because multitudes among us havo eni
braco false views of liberty. Those
prejudiced Jewish zealots whom Paul re
buked, and with whom be reasoned, havo
their successors. They are blind to rea
son. They are deaf to entreaty. They
have no right conception ot the mean
ing of Christian liberty. They tako but
little if any interest in other folks. Their
thoughts aro concentrated 011 them
selves. Society has not many rights
which they feel bound to respect. When
the laws of tho land Interfere with their
Ideas of liberty, then they aro opposed to
such laws. They want a loose rein. Thoy
are quite willing that other violators of
law and order should be curbed and pun
ished, but they aro Indignant when tho
law steps In and puts a curb upon them
selves. Their Idea of liberty Is that they
should bo "a law unto themselves."
JUut wo need not wonder nt such con
duct on tho part of tho thoughtless for
thoughtful men huvo held widely different
Ideas In respect of liberty, In the mind
of George Washington and the colonists,
liberty meant something very different
from that which It conveyed to tho mind
of tho king and parliament of England.
A patriot and a traitor have different
Ideas of liberty, it will never do to
put Georgo Washington nnd Benedict
Arnold In the same category.
We must bo careful not to confound
Christian liberty with license. They havo
nothing in common. Thero is no fellow
ship between righteousness and un
llghteousness. There can bo no concord
between Christ and Belial, Christian
liberty does not give a man 11 wrong
commission to do as bo pleases. Society
has rights with which no Individual
should Interfere.
One of tho choicest blessings of a na
tion Is good government; nnd good gov
ernment means civil liberty; and civil
liberty, rightly Interpreted, means reli
gious liberty; and for till tho civil and'
lellglous liberty that wo enjoy wo are
Indebted to our truly holy Christianity.
Moreover, In nil future ages, Christianity
and civil liberty will bo found marching
side by side. Tho only temple of freedom
worthy of tho name, Is that lemplo which
ban Christianity for Its "seven pillars."
Dlvlno wisdom alono has built tbnt tem
ple, nnd It Is as solid as tho throne of
God. (Prov, lx:10
To bo permitted to act as 0110 pleases,
Irrespective ot tho rights of others, Is an
Idea of liberty that would bo approved by
thieves and burglars, and by all those
who would use this liberty as a "cloak
of maliciousness"; but such conduct will
novel- bo tolerated In Christian society.
Nn Individual has any right to use a lib
erty which ho claims to tho Injury of his
neighbors; nor has a number ot indi
viduals any right to baud tbomsolves to
gether and, In tho nnme nt liberty, sac
rifice liberty on the nllnr of their selfish
ness, and do It to their own Injury na well
as to tho Injury ot the community. That
would bo to uso one's liberty "for an
occasion to tho llesh," and "as a cloak of
maliciousness," llcnco, In every well or
dered state, where an Individual, or 11
combination of Individuals, tako iimluo
liberty and violates the law, restraint
should bu used, and, if necessary, punish
ment should bo Indicted.
That Christian liberty Is In harmony
with righteous law, Is 11 fact that needs
to bo emphasized in somo utiarlcrs. In
deed wo havo high uutborlty for Iho as
sertion that Christian liberty should re
spect tho laws, oven when tho laws aro
not righteous. Tho early converts to
Chilstlunlty woro taught that thoy ought
to "bo subject to every ordinance of man
for tho Lord's Salto " Tho Christian free
dom dldnot absolve them from tho ob
Recital ,.,

ligations thoy owed tho Btnte, nor did It
glvo to them the privilege of violating tho
laws of tho land, On tho contrary, their
obligation to bo law abiding citizens was
enhanced, just because thoy wcro Chris
tians. This Is the Dlvlno Idea. It Is God's
rule for Christian liberty. "Tho powers
that be tiro ordained of God'; and "ho
that reslstcth tho power, rcslsteth tho
ordinance ot God." It was Nero who was
king when Peter urged Christians to obey
the law. This fact gives forco to his
counsel when ho snys: "Honor all men.
Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor
tho King." No good citizen will violate
tho law or advocate Its violation, or en
courage others to violate It.
It Is not necessary to discuss the right
of revolution. That right Is conceded hi
certain circumstances. Bat that Is not
now the question. The point now Is that
loyal submission to law on the part of
every citizen Is a sacred duty which is
enjoined both by Holy Scripture and
right reason. But while this is God's
truth, It Is dlstnstcul to many. Multi
tudes are governed by wilfulness and sel
fishness rather than by reason and reve
lation. Insubordination and disrespect for
lawful authority aro marked characteris
tics of these times. We see this In our
own vicinity, and it as plain to bo seen
In other quarters. We have been taught
in the school of Christ, that is a manly
thing to do honest work; but thero aro
thousands nnd tens of thousands among
us, who would havo us believe that It Is
a manly thing to keep honest men from
working. They regard It as manly to play
the part of "the dog In tho manger," and
neither work themselves nor permit oth
ers to work. That is to say, they are
using liberty "as a cloak of malicious
ness." They have no sympathy with the
teaching of Peter and Paul on tho sub
ject of liberty. To act "as tho servants
of God," and "by love" to ' "servo one
another," Is repugnant to them.
Is not this true? And is it not pitiable?
Is thero any remedy for It? Yes. An en
lightened Christianity is the remedy.
Righteous laws can do much, but when
these friends aro brought Into vital con
tact with Jesus Christ, they will then act
"as His servants," and they will not mis
take liberty for license.
History teaches us that disdain of law
ful authority Is both tho precursor nnd
the sign ot a falling state. And surely
the desire to do justice between man and
and man, the desire to uproot evil, to re
ward virtue, and to punish vlco ought not
to bo regarded as tho exclusive privilege
and duty of any one party in the state,
or In tho nation.
There can bo no surer test of the po
litical, social and religious condition of a
people than that which permits citizens
to Ignoro and set at defiance the laws of
the land; and thero Is no wav in which
patriotism and piety can be employed
more honorably or mora usefully than by
endeavoring to establish respect for law
and order in every community, in every
workshop, In every place Ot business, and
In every homo. Begin with the children,
for If they bo trained up In tho way they
should go, they will not depart from It.
Note also this point: As citizens of the
Christian commonwealth, we aro under
obligations to each other. Wo nro God's
servants, and by love, we should serve
one another. If this rulo woro observed,
it Would rid society of somo of the great
evils that now uflllet it. There would be
no clashing of Interests between class and
class, between capital and labor, be
tween employers and employes. The
Christian rule: "Bear yo one another's
burdens" has been too often Ignored, I
suppose It Is truo that no nation on earth
has bad greater prosperity that this na
tion of ours, and I suppose It is also
true, tbnt in no nation does tho Individual
enjoy greater liberty. These aro blessings
for which we cannot be too thankful;
but they aro blessings which havo been
abused, and If we dcslro to perpetuate
these blessings wo must be on our guard
against their further abuse. "Tho broth
erhood of man" is a talcing phrase, but It
Is often misleading and It Is often ig
nored. We say: "A man's a mail for a' that,"
and straightway wo treat him as If ho
wero something else than a man. In tho
treatment of their fellow-men, thero Is, In
ninny quarters, a vast difference between
their brotherhood doctrlno and their
brotherhood conduct. Tho church of
Christ Is not entirely free from this
fault. Its brotherhood doctrine Is nil
right, but some Christians fall far short
of carrying that doctrine Into practice.
If professing Christians do not obsorve
tho Golden Rule, It cannot bo expected
that men ot the world will observe It.
AVo have good reason to helluva that
mutual forbearance, mutual sympathy,
mutual happiness and brotherly kindness
would go far to prevent strife- nnd 111 will,
and to bind together In bonds ot friend
ship, employers and their employes. Of
course, tho vicious, and tho malicious and
tho unreasoning crowd must bo dealt
with In another way. Thoy must bo with
stood to tho face; and for tho sake, of
tho law nblding, nnd In tho Interest ot
Christian liberty, thoy must bo restrained
and punished,
1 speak In this way today, because of
local conditions, and because of threaten
Ings which, If carried out, would entail
widespread sufferings nnd loss, To carry
out theso threats would, In my judgment,
bo a monstrous abuse of power, unci It Is
to be hoped that those Immediately Inter
ested tho employers und tho employed
wlll havo enough of wisdom, and enough
of patriotism, and enough of tho spirit of
Christ to prevent such a cntustropho,
"Brethren, yo have been called until
liberty," The liberty which Paul nnd
Peter had In mind was as hluh above
tho common worldly Idea of liberty as
tho heaven Is high above tho earth, They
had In mind that liberty wherewith Christ
makes Ills people free. They knew and
know that no man Is free who Is tho blavo
of passion, or of appetite, or of selfish
ness; that no man Is free. In a Christian
sense, who is pot Christ's obedient sar
vant, nnd whoso life Is out of harmony
wjth the will of God. To bo freo from
the guilt, and the penalty, und tho power
of sin j to bo conscious of the smllo of
God, and to havo 11 good hope through
grace of everlasting llfo this Is the lib
erty to which Christian aro called, and
thoso who enjoy this liberty will never
iiho It for a mean purpose, or uu a cloak
of maliciousness; but, as the servants ot
God, they will put It to a holy use Instead
of oppressing their neighbors, they will,
by love serve one another,
