A Practial Man's Ten Reasons for Being a Christian
1.. I Seeded Forgiveness For My Sins.
I had sinned against niy body. 1 had befouled my thoughts and
mind. 1 had brokeu down my conscience and weakened my will
and eharaeter. I had w rouged my family. 1 had done harm to
my associates. I had neglected and even defied my Maker and
coustant Henefaetor. Without forgiveness I had no self-respect
and no peace of mind. 1 found both when God for Christ's sake
forgave my sins.
2. / Needed Help to Overcome Tempta
T find the suggestion of evil all arouud me. What is worse. 1
find in my nature a response to it. I aiu an animal, without .i
t-oimuon animal's natural checks to over-indulgence of animal
passions. I am a person, and the impulse is strong to regard my
individuality as supreme over all other individualities. Kxperi
euee shows me I am too weak in mind, will and eharaeter to
control these impulses. 1 need help froui outside of myself. I
find that help in the Christian religion.
3. lAm Right With God.
There is a God! I don't understand all of this wonderful world
in which I live, but what I do understand unanimously vouches
for the existence of a Supreme Being. Disobedience to His nat
:ra! laws works out certain punishment; obedience to it brings
comfort and power. If that is true with liod's lower material
law. how much more true will it be with his higher moral and
spiritual law. 1 study to live in harmony with both the lower
and the higher law. 1 want to be right with God!

4. I Am Associated With a Religion
The Christian religion works! It has transformed races and
nations as well as individuals. It makes red-nosed "Bum" Smith
over into John Smith. Ksq., a blessing to his community. The
mere leaven of Christianity changed barbarous Japan into a world
power during the tntoe of a siugle life. 1 am proud to profess a
religion that "makes good!"
5. It Is a Spiritual Accident and In
In some troubles neighbors and friends can help. In life's
deeper sorrow only God can say the right won!. The world's not
■a hard mechanical engine, grinding, crushing remorselessly on.
There is a good Friend running it and running it right! God's
drills and lathes and puuehes hurt frightfully at times. I grant,
but when the Master Workman gets through with me, I*ll be
worth living forever!
6. Being a Christian Puts Me Into Good
1 belong to the family of God! I atu a brother of Jesus Christ!
The only "poor relations" I have are the angels ui heaven, who
have never knowu "saving grace." Yes, there arc some cheap,
low-grade Christians; the more is the pity. There are a lot of
" Near Christians," people who'd like to have the benefits and
privileges of Christians, but are unwilling to pay the price. Cut
them all out. and you have left the finest body of human beings
in the world. And they are my brothers and sisters!

7. / Admire the Ideas and Purposes of
the Christian Religion.
No mm tor how badly Christ ianity is misrepresented by its
ignorant and unfaithful followers, everybody concedes that its
essential ideas and its main purposes are the uohlest ami worthiest
ever given to man. Its fundamental idea is Tightness—right with
God. right with one's neighbor, right with one's self. Its funda
mental purpose is helpfulness. That appeals to me!
8. It Gives the Right Basis To Universal.
Mutual love, mutual patience, mutual sympathy, mutual help
fulness! We are brothers, because we have one common Father
and one common Saviour. That is the true and only solution to
all social problems.
9. Faith In Christ Takes Away the
Terror of Death.
As is entirely right and normal. 1 shrink from dying. It is a
law of life written of God in my physical nature. Hut when my
last hour comes, be it soon or lute. 1 shall not fall into terror and
panic, but go in peace. My soul is safe!
10. lAm a Christian Because It Is Right.
God gave me existence, fitted me wonderfully to the world
about me. To ignore my Maker were a crime! To antagonize
Him the basest treason! He gives me existence, protection, oppor
tunity for this life and the next. Can I give Him less than my
obedience, my love, my life, my all* Would it be right to do less?

THE HIDDEN SACKCLOTH.
Text. " Uphold he hurt sackcloth wtthln
■l*m his llrsh Kins*, vl, 30.
A siege Is * horrible thing;. The be
sieger becomes a blood lustful beast,
the besieged a frantic animal. Beuha-
An(, the Syrian, tieslegcd Samaria, and
the resultant fninlno was so awful
that two mothers entered Into a hide
ous compart to kill their babies on
succi-sslve days for food. One mother
performed her part of the bnrimtn. hut.
when the turn of the second came
she refused mul hid her Iwby. in re
morseful fury the tirst mother hurried
to King Jehorain and poured out her
tale in his horrified ears He was so
affected by the shocking recital that he
tore his garments asunder Impulsively,
when a curious thine t.ook place. "The
people looked, and behold, he had
sackcloth within upon his flesh." It
was a revelation. It had never oc
curred to them that, their king wits
nuythlug but a purple wearing, self
loving monarch. Now they see him
wearing grief garments in their sin
eerest and most painful form The
Samaritans must have thought better
of their king after that
Parading the Sscfcctoth.
Our eyes and senses are otfended
every day by the cruel selfishness of
men who are looking out for number
one only, and women who spend their
all In dress and entertainment—a con
stant ministering to self. What a dls
play some folks make of their sack
cloth! They tell the neighborhood.
Kveryone knows their personal all
moots, afflictions and poverty. Shal
low streams are noisy, A deep river
is quiet, especially near the sea. Most
of us talk too much with men. too
little with God. Yet there are many
who, like the ancient king, are secretly
wearing sackcloth. They greet yon
with smile and apparent cheerfulness,
possibly sometimes their manner Is a
bit constrained, or you surprise them
in tears, but underneath the smile and
chat and cheer a secret care is gnaw
ing with unrelenting paiu. This Is
often in unexpected places. The rich,
the privileged, the gifted, men of
genius and splendid ability,' back of
wealth, honors and medals may wear
sackcloth. Carlyle snld, "Genius is a
ship on fire at sea for the entertain
ment of spectators on shore." The brit
Hunt costume at banquet and ball may
cover an irritating, lacerating sack
cloth. Kings In Europe have scores of
regimental uniforms, but there's sack
cloth under most of them. Three of
our presidents have died from the as
sassln's bullet, one even now carries a
bullet In bis body. Our greatest mil
lionaire was tortured with indigestion.
Some sackcloth is self imposed. T*n»
known men and women who we-e
wwring sackcloth to atone for some
sin. I.iUe Or. Johnson standing bare
headed in the rain in the market place
In Lichfield, where years before he
had spoken harshly to his old father,
I know a daughter who makes dally
trips to a cemetery with flowers for
the same reason. Many a gift to
charity Is because the giver is wear
j ing sackcloth. The "conscience fund"
at Washington eases Irritation to some.
Much religious observance Is an effort
in that, direction. Sometimes the sins
of others-drink, drugs, gambling
make us writhe in unsought and un
merited anguish. Only the Almighty
knows the torture of a suicidal mania,
dread of insanity, the hell of jealousy
that gnaws and eats like a hidden fire.
Who can calculate the misery caused
by financial wrongs, wrecked reputa
! tlons, slights, hurts, Inlustices under
i circumstances that compel you to keep
silent? Folks see yotir pained look and
tear stained face, discerning ones note
your ill concealed anguish, but they
assign some other cause. Many suffer
i from a loveless manias*, which do
velops into a brutal, unsympathetic
husband, a nagging, selfish, extrava
gant wife. A beautiful house on the
avenue may conceal a domestic trag
edy. quarreling parents, a fool son, an
erring daughter. Not many sackcloth*
are so hard to w&ir.
A Thorn In the Flesh.
I listened last night to a master mind
In a contemptible physical presence.
Many a noble soul is caged in an ig
noble body, a constant source of mor
tlficatlon and sorrow. Many a throb
bing heart has a big message, but.
i Cassandra-like, is not believed. Health
may exist, yet there is a physical do
j formity—the jewel has a poor setting.
A man with brains ma.v get along with
homeliness: indeed it nfay even be cap
ital. But lack of beauty Is a sore strug
gle for a woman. Change of outward cir
cumstances brings coldness and neglect
from others, real or imaginary. When
our usefulness is gone or our influence
abated often even home and church,
j the two last places, change their atti
tude toward us. But sin imposes the
worst sackcloth. Hawthorne had tho
I gift of painting the secret suffering of
1 sin. Remember the monomaniac car
! rying the serpent In his bosom and
frying secretly. "It gnaws me." Rev.
Arthur Dimmesdale wears the scarlet
! letter within that Hester Prynne wears
without. Fine touch of genius in that
story. Back of the black pages, tho
I closed chapters, the thing done in
! darkness is tho sackcloth to be worn
nntll the shroud takes its place. What
! shall we do with our sackcloth—wear
; It like Jehoram under our bright robe.
; parade it like a peevish woman or. lik»
Paul with the thorn in his flesh, take
jit to God? "My grace shall be suffl
! clent for thee."
He dreamed a castle in the air.
j A lazy chap's ideal one.
Then sold the plan to a busy man
With cash to build a real one
"How on earth did a man with »
record like his ever manage to clean
I it up?"
I "I guess be did it with soft soap."—
