THE REIGN OF GOD
By Rev. Dr. Edward Everett Hale

heavens opened, and th.3 Son of man
standing on the right hand of God."
Acta vli., 56.

mcmber a little book, with bright red
papor covers, which we got hold of In
some way when I was a boy of ten
years of age. It was an enthusiastic
demonstration of the validity of the
four Gospels, in which much s. -s
was laid on the prophetic power of t;io
Saviour. Among other things he had
prophesied the coming of the king
dom of God. He had said, "There are
some standing here who shall see the
kingdom of God come in Its glory."
And this coming of the kingdom of
God meant that the Emperor Titus
was to destroy the city of Jeru
salem before Saint John died. When
in other studies we came to read of
the awful carnage and horror of the
storming of the city of Jerusalem, it.
was not unnatural If Intelligent boys
and girls should ask how it could be
that the Saviour of men had such hor
hors In his mind when he said a thou
sand times that what he hoped for
was the coming of the kingdom of
God or the kingdom of Heaven. It
seems almost a burlesque to bring to
gether two uses of these words so dis
similar, but I believe that just such
false ideas of what the kingdom of
God is hold back many intelligent
men and women from an adequate
idea of what they moan themselves!
when they pray that "Thy kingdom
I once heard Dr. Durniss say that he
had never met a man who was edu
cated on the continent of Europe who
knew what Jesus Christ meant when
he spoke of the kingdom of God. It
is even worse than the Idea which
half the continent of Europe has as
to the meaning of the word "govern
ment." Perhaps we do not hear so much
now as wo did fifty years ago about
the second advent of the Saviour;
but even now I could name people
otherwise intelligent who really sup
pose that before this generation of
men is dead Jesus Christ will appear
In the city of Hoston in a carriage not
unlike a circus wagon with four or
six horses, as the case may be, with
or without wings, as the case may be,
and that this will bo the beginning of
a new dispensation of things.
What good men want, what
prophets and klng3 waited for, Is not
any machinery of palace or etiquette
or courtiers or ofllcers. It is the rulo
of God. Precisely what it is not Is
the reign of a body of officials com
ing between God and his children.
Precisely what we want Is that the
life of men may bo life in which they
know and feel the presence and wish
of God as an intelligent child knows
and feels the wish" and hope of his
father In the homo, whether the
father be In sight or no.
All the analogies of nature are on
our side. In Dr. Stebbins's fine
phrase, we can spell Nature with a
large N. We are praying that the
will of God may be fulfilled, that tho
moral law of God may be obeyed, that
the presence of God may be felt and
acknowledged. We are not praying
for any palace on seven hills or on
seventy. No! And we are not pray
ing for any court of high chancellors
or keepers of the king's conscience.
We are not praying for any secre
taries of state or of war or of peace.

man, the child of God, may reflect the
will of God tho Father. We are pray

Now and then some devout soul Is
distressed over the fact that the
heroes of the Bible behave at times
quite as foolishly and as unrighteous

200 ltnptlst pastors here Professor
CJooi'Ko H. Foster of flic I'nlversity of
Chicago, whose writing, denounced
by some ns "a hitter Indictment of the
Christian religion before the liar of

H' Chicago, was called on by the Rev.
Dr. Johnstone Myers, pastor of Im-
inanuel Uaptlst church, to withdraw
from the P.aptlst ministry and to yield
up his ordination papers.
The lire l' criticism was directed
chlelly at Professor Foster's recent
book. "The Function of Religion,"
which was declared heretical.
This motion was put at the confer
ence of the Baptist executive council,
md only the objection of one man,
Professor A. K. Parker, who. like Pro
fessor Foster, Is an Instructor at the
University of Chicago, prevented tho
;vIetlon of tho author of "The Func
tion of Religion."
Professor Parker prevented action
iy calling attention to n constitutional
arovlslon preventing notion without a
week's deliberation. The ease accord
ingly was postponed until June 14.
"I want to say now that I'll be here
next week to present tho same mo
don," said Dr. Myers.
It was after Professor Foster had
Doen characterized ns "an undesirable
Baptist" and as a teacher who "flouted
the Bible, would dethrone the church
ind defy evolution" that the effort to
?ject him from the councils of the de
nomination was made.
"Professor Foster declares." snld the
Rev. W. A. Mathews of the Tabernacle

Professor Foster, "that one who calls

"May I ask how that word Is spell

"K-n-a-v-e." replied tho speaker.
"If you will pardon the correction,"
observed Profer.sor Parker, "I have
the book In my hand, and the word is
spelled 'naive.' "
"Professor Foster states In his
book," continued Mr. Mathews, "that
God did not make man in Ids own
Image, but that man made God in his
own image. He says we are not fallen
angels, but developed animals. He says
that miracles have always been the

While Mr. Mathews was speaking
the situation was tense. The nudltors
leaned forward to catch every word
of the proceedings.
Through It all Professor Foster's sev-onteen-year-old
son sat with Hushed
cheeks and shining eyes. At last, un
able to restrain himself longer, ho
rose and cried:
"Why don't you review the book nnd
not the man."
A buzz of excitement spread over
tho room, but the speaker paid no at
tention to the Interruption,
When the motion was made to expel
Professor Foster, there were cries of
"Second it!" from all over the hall.
After the meeting Dr. Parker said
that whatever action might bo taken
by the preachers would not affect Pro
fessor Foster's relations with the Uni
versity of Chicago.
"This conference has nothing to do
with the university," he said. "Two
thirds of the university's trustees are
Baptist laymen, but they could not
vote to expel a member of the faculty
