RIOT OVER PREACHER.
International Bible Lesson for
Aug. 22, '09. (Acts 19: 23-41).
E p h 0 s u s In
Paul's day was
the great oriental I
metropolis o f
that time. Us
p r o x i 111 1 1 y to
Greece 11 11 d
made it also a
meeting place for
the mingled cur
rents of Knntcrn
nnd West e r n
thought nnd life.
Hero the culture,
wcnlth and wick-
dm-ss ot the old
: nations mot undo; the shadow of the
I grandest monuments of ancient art
! and Idolatry, the temple of DInnn.
It seems that the hlef business of
I the ancient city was tho manufacture
I of silver shrines containing a minla
- ture Imago of the goddess, which was
I sold as a memento of the temple, and
I also as a popular Idol, A man by the
name of Demetrius had a monopoly
of the business, which tlie Bible says
I "brought no small gain to the crafts
I Hard Times In Idol Trade.
Hut after Paul had been preaching
In Ephcsus for some time, business
began to get dull In tho idol trade.
The manufacturers found that the de
mand did not eipial tho supply, idols
became a drug on tho market, tho
people had all gone off after tho popu
lar preacher and Diana's shrine was
neglected. So Demetrius called his
people together and put the blame on
the preacher. Ho showed them that
the new religion was interfering with
their bread and butter. He worked
the financial end of the arguments for
all It was worth, Jlrcd the hearts of
tho mob like an American demagogue,
until they rushed forth Into the street
to lynch the preacher. They howled
about tho houso whero ho was sup
loiml to be and not finding Paul,
hauled out two of his companions and
assaulted them for consorting with
such a rascal. Through tho streets
they swarmed shouting, "Great is Di
ana of the Epheslans!"
They finally adjourned to the the
atre', where for two mortal hours they
yelled and gesticulated and shrieked
out their maledictions against anybody
and everybody who was opposed to
Diana. It was a scene as delirious as
Black Friday on tho stock exchauge,
with people In a wild stampede of
fear, and tho great mass of them
howling without any idea what they
were yelling about. Or, as the Bible
puts it, "Some cried one thing and
some another; for the assembly was
confused, and tne more part knew not
whereforo they were come together."
Tho lesson taught by this story is
that Christianity is revolutionary.
There Is nothing so ruinous to every
form of sin, nothing that so Interferes
with established Iniquity, nothing that
has such a tendency to upset things
as our glorious Christianity. Re
ligion has been often misrepresented
as a principle of tears and fastidious
ness; afraid of crossing people's pre
judices, afraid of making somebody
mad: handling men as though they
were the very thinnest Bohemian
glass, so very delicate that with one
rough touch It may be demolished for
ever. No! religion Is not a refined
and delicate aroma, a spiritual chloro
form for people to take until the sharp
cutting of life Is over. Men who ought
to know better sometimes write books
entitled "Apologies for Christianity,"
the title more expressive of the author
than of the book. Religion is not a
puny little dwarf to be carried around
on exhibition and admired for Its dou
cate features. It Is a brawny, robust,
revolutionary giant, ransacking and
upsetting ten thousand things that
now seem to be as fixed and settled as
was the worship of Diana.
Bullets Versus Raisins.
It would not be considered very
complimentary to a preacher these
days to have such a mob after him as
Paul had. But In his day It was un
complimentary If he didn't. Paul al
ways had an opinion on every subject
that he handled, and when ho was In
a city, Instead of preaching what tho
people liked he preached what he
thought they needed. There are so
many those dnys who aro floaters
hovering over popular sin but never
lighting upon it. They uso elegant
rhetoric and soft speoch and flatter
ing apostrophe. They preach meta
physics, dry as a last years' bird nost
and ns empty; or they thresh out tho
old straw of dead nnd buried evils
that nobody can object to. And when
a man does rise up who strikes
straight from tho shoulder there is al
ways a rattling among tho dry bonos,
and he is fortunate if he holds on to
When the Scotch Covenanters
were at one time in battle their am
munition gave out nnd they had to
wait for bullets. They expected a bar
rel of bullets. A barrel came down
hut It was the wrong ono, sent by mis
take. It was a barrel of raisins. They
knocked in tho head of the barrel nnd
tat down In defeat. That Is largely
the fault now. Churches are dying of
great sermons and splendid sorvicos.
What we need Is less confestlonar;
and more bullets.
