The International Sunday School Lesson for July 0 Is "The
Church: Its Life and Work."—Acts 2:37-47; I. Tlicss. 5:11-15.
Full Circle swing the wheel. All
the world is agog over the new mood
of Socialism that is expressing itself
in violent forms in certain centers
which hold public attention. Mil
lions of people sincerely believe that
this whole basic idea of a recon
structed social order is entirely new.
They assume that Socialism if so
indefinite word be permissible is a
discovery of recent years.
Yet hene we come upon a picture
of the first company of Christian be
lievers, bent upon realizing complete
, communism— selling their individual
J possesions and having all things n
' common, and moving a toge her-in
a mood of high spiritual exaltation.

Jerusalem church came to
dominant. Men and women
that thev were Christians touched
bv the divine fire, aware of their
acceptance by Christ, made evcry;
thing else seem relativelyunimp
ant Bv the accession of 3.000 re
cruits, under the stimulus of Peter
great sermon, they were suddenly
confronted with a new sense of their
solidarity as Christians. Jhey
came, as it were, a special commun
itv within the city—and the happiest
sweetest-spirited. cleanest living
section of the population.
Under the impulsion of the new
emotion, they decide to pool thelr
possesions. It was unthinkable to
them that there should he social de- ,
grees or classes among the brethren.
As members of one great family-,
the young Christian church, they
decided to hold all things in com
mon. The poor shared the property
of the rich; the rich had the volun
tary help of the poor. It was a
case of emulation in self sacrifice
and in affectionate service. In eat
ing and drinking, in work and in
worship there was a simpHcty of
thankfulness and mutuality such as .
the self-seeking world had never i
I seen before.
Significantly, we hear little more
about the economic aspect of this
experiment in socialism. Had the
zeal of the disciples carried them to
impracticable lengths? Soon we
read of Paul's taking up a collec
tion for the help of the mother
church at Jerusalem: the commu
nity had evidently gone on to the
rocks economically. Communism
has revived in various ways in the
church throughout the succeeding
centuries, as in the monastic orders
and in certain groups of live-minded
Christians, but communism is not a .
teaching of any considerable section j
of the church to-day.
Something Better Than Socialism |
This is an arresting situation, and |
it will this week receive widespread i
study by millions of alert persons
" who follow the International Les
sons, keep to discern the present ap- |
plications of Scripture. Either the
first group of Jerusalem Christians
overstressed the social and economic
side of their discipleship. or else ex
pressed it in a mistaken form, or the j
Christian Church as a whole has j
been guilty of a profound error and j
apostasy. Let us see.
Forms are incidental and transi
tory: the spirit is essential and j
abiding. Jesus himself laid down I
that principle. The world needed a I
scheme of communism less than it j
needed a new disposition of genuine
brotherhood. Christ did not come
to establish any special form of so
cial order, communism or aristoc
racy, any more than he came to set
up a distinctive form of government,
as the republican or the monarchial.
Instead, he put into the hearts of
his people a new fire of divine love
for their kind. His followers have
always been known for their good i
will toward men. They do good to i
all men, and especially to such as \
are of the household of the faith, j
Jesus rrratfs ;md ts ,tt>
r create society.
Because becoming a Christian is!
an individual, rather than a mass |
matter, and because the world ever '
. has greater need of a vitalized per
\ sonalities than of new institutions, !
the stamp of Scriptural approval is ;
1 not given to that first impulsive ef- j
fort at Communism, other than to I
record the fact. The church is a j
living organism, and not a static !
construction. Her members have
shaped and reshaped the world, and
are still doing so. Nevertheless,
the Christian interest is primarily
in the individual man or woman.
' Institutions only incidentally
mould people; people shape institu
tions. We find that into the early
church, even during the first blush j
of Its experiment in communism,
there crept into the fellowship those,
like Ananias and Sapphira. who ]
really did not belong within the |
church. They prefigured the doom i
of any society which could be em
ployed for purposes of self explolta- I
tlon by designing persons. In Itus
¥ tr sia, it is the designing self-seekers,
the crafty politicians after power
and privilege and wealth, who have
capitalized and perverted the sim
ple and generous instincts of the
Russian masses, whose Christian im
pulses m&de them ready for any
thing that called itself brotherhood
or democracy.
"Russia, like the rest of the world,
as it comes under the sway of in
telligent Christianity, will find itself
developing a noble and altruistic in
dividualism. wherein each is his best
self in order that he may best serve
others. That is better than Social
Good Will of tlic Good
Sometimes the church has become
so institutionalized that she has rep
resented classes, rather than the- en
tire mass of mankind. Therein she
has fallen short of her true mission
as Christ's Church. Whenever the
church fails to be instantly sensi
tive to every cry of human need .she
thereby shows that she has ceased
to be sensitive to the impulsion of
her Master's Spirit. If at any time
she fails to be in the forefront of
movements for the amelioration or
reconstruction of the social order,
she thereby comes short of the di
vine office. The church is not the
handmaiden of Things As They Are:
she is the herald of Things As They
Ought To Be.
To great social and economic
functions the church is constantly
fulfilling though these, it must
ever be remembered, are subordinate
to her divine mission of leading men
to personal salvation through
Christ. One is to create within'her
self a fraternity of friends of God.
who shall be a refuge and an incen
tive to all people everywhere. There
is no mistaking the teaching that
the Bible designs the Christian tie
to be the strongest tie. It should
mean more to a man to be a Chris
tion than to be a Mason or an Elk
or a Democrat or a Granger. The
goodly fellowship of Christians
should be the greatest social bond—
as it really is to-day. Thank God for
the billions of people who have their
social relations almost wholly with
in their churches, for that ' society
is wholesome, simple, mutually help
ful. To belong to church should
mean, in all practical ways, more
than to belong to any other body in
In the second place, the church
permeates and leavens the world
with people of good will. This has
been the greatest indirect service of
Christianity to the race. Who have
dreamed the great dreams of world
peace and of world fraternity? The
t. hristian nations, and -the men in
them who have been avowedly
Christian disciples. Consider the

part that those eminent Christian
laymen—known as such before ever
they came to political position—
President Wilson. Lloyd George and
Arthur Balfour, are playing in the
reconstruction of the world. They
are only typical of an uncounted
company of men and women serv
ants of our time who could say, in
their innermost hearts, "Thy love of
Christ constraineth us." Inventors,
merchants, scientists, writers, pub
licists. educators, all would acknowl
edge that force in their public serv
ice. Turning aside from the emi
nent and distinguished, we have
only to remember that the public
school teachers of the land are
splendidly Christian in their motive
and in their influence. It would
take many volumes to trace the in
fluence of the church as a force for
good will in contemporary life.
Behind the Better Day
Beyond question, the tides of our
times have set in strongly toward
social changes of a radical nature.
Riding on those tides are sinister
pirate craft. Nevertheless the move
ment is good and of God. No honest
person, with a drop of blood of sac
rifice and unselfishness in his veins,
will do other than cheer the pro
gress of improvement in human re
lationship. Let all changes for the
better come, and be accelerated. But
let them be changes born of good
will, and of a sincere desire for the
welfare of all men everywhere. So
long as change brings us closer to
genuine brotherhood, it is to be wel
comed and aided, whatever the cost.
There is no price we are not pre
pared to pay for the realization of a
reign of love among all people.
In a time like the present, the
church, which is the greatest force
in the world, should throw herself
wholeheartedly into a realization of
whatever is Christian in the day's
social movement. • Likewise, she
should fearlessly oppose whatsoever
is spurious and hurtful." As she
should be the preponent of Chris
tian democracy, and of justice and
liberty to the limit, so she should
also be the opponent of Bolshevism
and of class hatred and of social
spoliation. Let no well-meaning
sentimentalist make the mistake of
welcoming anarchy and ill-will, for
these are un-Christian. A fresh pur
suit of the high ethical standards of
the church will save the world from
the horrors of a reign of destructive
license and intolerance. When we
strengthen the Christian Church ln
her purity, we are strengthening the
causes of man's social welfare and
of universal progress; as well as of
the glory of God.
