From the Angle of
Tlio International Sunday School Lesson For August 10 Is "Winning
Others to Christ"—Acts lti:0-15; James 5:10-20
In the -soft glow of a summer
evening 1 rode yesterday from Jeru
salem to Bethlehem. The distance
is only a little more than five miles,
along the main southern highway to
Hebron. It was over this very road
that Joseph and Mary and their
faithful donkey went in haste the
day before Christmas. The ancient
well by the wayside is pointed ouc,
with every degree of probability, as
one at which Mary refreshel
herself. Near Bethlehem we pass
the tomb of Rachel. Olive and vine
clad terraced hills surround tlio
town, which is solidly built of the
! übiquitous limestone of the land:
j the wiso man builds his house on
the rock—the underlying rock of
I Palestine—and of the rock as well.
| The stone is quarried soft and hard-
I ens upin exposure to air.
In a limestone cave, which once
1 was the rear room of stable of the
[ Bethlehem inn, or khan, there was
j born nineteen centuries ago a babo.
I Over that cave to-day there stands
I the oldest Christian Church in the
I world, built in the reign of Con
' stantine the Great, on the site of a
| still earlier construction. Since the
j capture of Jerusalem by General
; Allenby—when an American otilcer
; in his army was made first governor
of Bethlehem—certain unlovely ovi
| dences of ecclesiastical strife, nota
bly the unsightly wall that divided
! the interior, have been removed. It
is still necessary, though, to main
tain a military guard at the manger
| to prevent sectarian strife: thougii
; now the soldiers ace British, instead
. of Turks.
A silver star is let into the center
! of the grotto beneath the church,
and it is inscribed, "Hie de Virgine
I Maria Jesus Christus natus est."
I Around it burn perpetually the
• lamps of the I-atin, Greek and Ar
: nienian churches. There is much
. ecclesiastical ornamentation. One
| can scarcely realize that at this holy
, spot the miracle of the ages was
: wrought; and that here was mani
-1 fe6ted the Son of God, the Saviour
of the world. Here gathered the
wondering shepherds from the
i neighboring hillside. Over this town
j the mysterious celestial glory shone:
i and later the star rested. This is a
| local point of the universe and of
I eternity.
Now Power of nil Old Place
What has all this got to do with
the present lessoni Everything.
. This Bethlehem manger has become
central to a newly self-conscious
world. The star that shone here
nineteen centuries ago has become,
as it were, the supreme luminary ot
a celestial system, drawing all les-
ser planets into its orbit and power.
It represents the uplifted Christ who
Is to-day drawing all men unto him
self. Now. above all days that have
ever been, is a time of the suprem
acy of the teaching and spirit and
sacrifice of Jesus, once born ill
Hethlehcm as a lowly mother's
Babe. The heart-sore world is ready
to suy, with the shepherds, "Coma,
now, let us go unto Bethlehem."
As of old Paul heard Macedonia
calling in a vision—that same poor,
distraught Macedonia through which
1 have recently traveled—"Come
over and help us," so now all the
weak and war-worn and newly
awakened nations are crying to
Christ and Hi 6 Church, "Come over
and help us." There is no thought
ful person intelligently review
ing the world's present condition
who does not arrive at the conclu
sion that the greatest' need of the
nations is spiritual, and to be met
only by a vitalized and present re
As tlie Soldier Sees It
I pon returning from Bethlehem
i yesterday, and after dinner, I spent
two hours in enversation with a
staff captain in the British Army, a
cosmopolite who has seen most ot
the problem-places in the present
world unsettlement. We discussed
the national perplexities, one by
one, and finally confessed ourselves
bafiled, until the soldier said—and
he is not a religious man—"l ted
you, this whole business will nevor
be settled except on the basis of re
ligion which will make people really
friendly. There has got to be some
great Power to bring the spirit of
brotherhood into all the world."
That interview was true to type.
t'\er and over I find all sorts af
men turning to religion as the solu
tion of the present world chaos.
Some express a desire for a new re
ligion or a new prophet or an amal
gamation of all religions. In the
speech of soldiers and statesmen
and men of the world, the great
affirmation of Christ is being
echoed —mankind must be born
again, and receive a new nature,
before it can live a life of holiness
and helpfulness and harmony.
Under His Own llat
That line of reasoning leads us
straight to the conviction that the
most important work in the wotnl
at the present is to create Chris
tians. When men and women ate
led to Christ they are led out of the
selfishness and smallness and sor
didness that now afflict society liko
a disease. A sturdy type of intelli
gent Christianity is the best bul
wark against Bolshevism, capital
ism, imperialism, and all the other
isms that menace the integrity of
Recently "Life" had an editorial
upon the importance of each man's
having a league of nations, and of
good intentions under his own hat.
If the little world that lives there is
reorganized, the affairs of the
greater world will be cared for au
tomatically. The final problem is
the state of mind of the individual.
That is so obvious that its im
portance may be overlooked. All of
us are so busy with vast schemes
for making over mankind in the
mass that we are tempted to forget
that God's way is the one-by-one
method. He deals with individual".
He is changing the world by trans
forming men one at a time. Who
ever leads a friend into discipleship
to Christ is doing really a worn!
service as many of the men asso
ciated with the Peace Conference.
We cannot improve upon the
Master's methors. Amind these lulls
of India and Galilee Jesus chose a
| dozen common men—just such
, looking men as are at this moment
passing through the Jaffa Gate of
, Jerusalem before my eyes—to be his
ii iends and helpers. Association
| with him made them uncommon
| men. Their discipleship led them
into a service where they became a
world-revolutionizing force.
Again we are at a plastic hour
|tn history. New personalities are
yet to emerge to lay a shaping hand
upon events. Who knows that tho
| young person who is to-dav brought
, under the spell of Christ's leader
| ship may not be decisive factor in
| human destiny? We are serving th~
| world in profoundest and most
fundamental ways when we lead
I men into Christian allegiance.

To Solve Mystery
as to Mound Builders
Mexico City, Aug. B.—Archeologi
cal investigations by a govern
mental commission to solve the
mystery of who built the great
pyramids at San Juan Teotihuacan
27 miles from Mexico City, have
brought to light two great granite
heads of the ancient Mexican god
of the air. Quetzalcoatl. These
heads are almost perfect specimens,
bearing all the symbolic markings'
The long disputed point as to who
erected the pyramids is, as yet, un
solved. These huge mounds one
to the sun and the other to the
moon, the former being 761 by 7:>i
feet at the base and 216 feet "high
are generally attributed to a tribe
that preceded the Toltccs, probably
dating from about the sixth century.
