of Romans, 9th, 10th, and 11th ver

"1. Belie?e with-thine heart '
"2. Confess with thy mouth.

many people are not willing to follow
Christ is, they don't want to come and
publicly confess. If there was a side
door somewhere they could just slip in,
it would be all right. You reniember
down in Cae-sarea when Christ asked
His disciples, 4Yhorn do men say that
I am ?' 'Some say a prophet, some Mo
ses, some Elias.' 'But whom say ye
that 1 am?' Then Peter spoke out, as
usual, being the spokesman for the
uthers, 'Thou art the Christ, the Son
of God Listen to Christ's answer,
'Blessed art thou, Simon-Barjona, for
flesh and blood hath not revealed it un
to thee, -but my Spirit.' I don't be
lieve a man ever confessed Christ that
he wasn't blessed right there. Why
arc there back-sliders here tonight?
Because they got with a lot of scoffers
and are ash tmed to run up the flag
aud confess Christ. That's the way
they get int a back-sliding state. Let
rae read what Christ said:
"Luke 12:8 'Whosoever shall con
fess me belore mn, him shall the Son
of Man also confess before the angels
of God!' Now there it. is. ou deny
me before iiki, and I'll denv you be
fore God. If a man's going to bo a
disciple, he must not stp round the
cross, but right up to it. In a meeting
iuNtjw York, there was a man whose
confidence-J tried for a week to get.
coulu get him just so far and no fur
ther. Finally 1 turned him over to a
lovely Christian mau I knew, and ask
ed him to see wfi;it he could do with
him. He came back, and said he culd
get him just so fr, and no further.
Well, one nteht that man got up aud
made a confession. He said there was
just one cross in his war. Whenever
he thought of getting up to confess,
there came into his mind this thought
'You've got to go to your lodging,
and if you get your Bible out and go
to reading it your room-mate will come
in and catch-you and laugh at you.'
At last though he made up his mind
he would get his Bible out of his
trunk, and begin to read, and if his
room-mate wanted to laugh he'd let
hira laugh. He hadn't been reading
but a few minutes when he heard foot
steps on the stairs tramp, tramp his
. room-mate was coming, rlis hist ini
J pulse was to jump up and hide the
Bible, but he said 'No! now's the time
t i sat i i 1 It-
lor me to staua tne test, tlis room
mate came in and seeing him reading
tke Bible, he said, 'Well, are you in
terested in the Bible?' 'Yes, I went to
hear Mr. Moody and his sermon con
vinced me.1 'Well, that's singular,'
said his room-mate. 'I was there the
.same night, and I was awakened too,
but I thought you'd laugh at me.'
TJiere wore those two cowards, sneak
ing around afraid of each other. Don't
think there are no such men here.
They are right here in Charlotte to
night. They are standing outside of
the door of this building at flight
watching each other to see if they are
going chutchward and God-ward. It's
a pity a man is so weak-kneed that he
is afraid of being toughed out of his
religiou. Now, I dun't know whether
I'm misjudging jou people down here
or not. I think you are about the
same ds they are up North. Mason
aad Dixon's line don't seem to change
human nature. y It's about the same
on f-ne side of the line as the other.
Some men think if they once get ink
the church that is all God requires
Christ didn't teach men just to join the
cfeurch andth.tt settled it, but to take
up their cress daily. What would you
think of a man who wanted to be
policeman but didn't want to wear the
uniform he felt just a little above it
iittttill he wanted to be a policeman
all the same? You wouldn't trust
your house or property to suchi man
as that to guard. Or what would yoa
think of a soldier who wanted to go
into the army, but was ashamed to put
oa the uniform ? He d J splendid
soldier, wouldn't he! It I'm gomg to
be a disciple of Christ, I must pet jon
tWlirery of heaven.
There are two characters ,1 want to
call your attention to to-night. They
both lived in the same city one was
on the top round of the ladder, the
other on the bottom round. When
you take them up yoa can't tell which
one's, testimony did the most good.
The first man is the poor blind beggar
told of in the ninth chapter et John.
That great long chapter jf,2 verses is
given up to that poor blindTgg
When I get to heaven I'm going to
hunt him up.
''There never was a work of God
that there wasn't opposition to. Have
you heard any one yet talking of this
meeting? ('Yes,' answered several.)
Glad of it. Thank God. The news
papers and all are going one way; glad
to hear there's some opposition. When
that blind man was made to see, his
neighbors came and said, 'Is not this
he who sat and begged?' 'Some said
this is he, but others said, he is like
him.' But listen. He said, 'I Ail he.'
He cut their argument short. They
said, 'How were thine eyes opened?'
He told them the simple story of Christ
spitting upon the ground and anoint
ing his eyes with clay, and of his wash
ing seven times in the pool of Siloam.
He didn't tell it in any flippant way.
It isn't the flippant, fluent man that
has the most influence with the jury,
but the man who tells the truth. I've
beard men in the pulpit talk and talki
but never tell anything. The the
Pharkees came to him and questioned
him, and he told theni of how Jesus
spat upon his eyes and he received his
sight. If the Lord is going to give
you sight, don't you tell Him how to
do it or how to save you.
"But the Jews did not lelieve con
eerning him that had received hi sight
until they called his parents in and
asked them. I always had coutempt
for these parents. They said, 'this is
1.1 I 1
son, out oy wnat means ne re
ceived his siht we know not; he is of
age, ask him.' When I get to heaven
I wont hunt those parents. They were
afraid if they told that Jesus had done
it thay would be cast out of the syna
gogue. It wasn't then like it is now.
Now if the Protestants cast you out
the Catholics will take you in; if the
Presbyterians cast you out th Metho
dists will take you in or the Baptists;
you can go from one fold to another.
The blind man when asked whether he
be a sinner or no answered, 'I know
not, but one thing I know, ouce I was
blind but now I see'. He knew one
thing that now he saw. Some of
you Christians don't know whether you
have got your eyes open or not. It is
a great thing to get your eyes open
and ta know they are open. When
asked who Jesus was he said, 'He is a
het. No one could preach more
theology or a
better sermon than that
blind man did.
"Well, but how did you get your
sight, those Jews asked. 'Well, if. 1
tell you will you become one of his dis
ciples?' I never saw a man grow so
ast. Here he is trying to convert
hose old Pharisees whom Christ him-

test when the time comes.
J. be other man I want to talk to
yon about was Joseph of Arimathea.
Only two of , the evangelists speak of
the birth of Christ, but all have some
thing to tell us of Joseph. All wanted
to pay a tribute to him. And did you
eyer take the trouble to look at the
time when Joseph confessed Christ?
It Wiis the darkestl hour the word ever
saw. Joseph rte& WRJtJaMf beWledUErjr

Ministers down the valley will take
their people there, but ministers on the
mountain top will take their people up
there. It might have been a secret
talk, that with Joseph. Nicodemus
was a secret disciple himself. But the
filial. time is going to come. With
some of you the testing hour has pass
ed; you've given your testimony on the
"That night the Sanhedrim assem
bled to condemn Christ. They would
not send for Joseph, for they wanted a
unanimous vote. Way down there I
hear Joseph utter the cry. which has
come ringing down the ages 'I never!
will give my consent to this just man's
death.' His lime came. The secret
disciple came out openly. That was
he darkest hour Jerusalem had ever
T A a .. ..
seen. .Joseph s friends said, 'they have
condemned Christ; his disciples have
forsaken Him; if you come out for him
you will be cast off, ostracized; you'll
ose all your friends; but he said, 'I'll
not give my consentHo this just man's
leath.' I have an idea and can just
T 1 .
imagine Joseph was not at the cruci
fixion. He thought God would at the
ast hour provide some way, as He did
to save Abraham Irom tiering up
r a 1 a I
saac. His servant comes running to
lim pale and breathless and tells him
he's just come from thi cross, it's all
over, bhrist is dead, tie has lust heard
that He committed his spirit to God,
and his body to his friends. When
Joseph heard that he went up boldly
oh, I like that word boldly into the
council hall and begged the body of
Christ. Pilate said, 'You don't mean
that you were a friend of Christ's?'
No uncircu incised hand was allowed to
touch that body. It was taken up
wrapped in fine linen, and just a little
funeral procession followed it to the
grave. It was laid in Joseph's sepul
chre. I don't believe there ever was a
man in all history who lost all of his
friends, as did Joseph. They kissed
him on the streets. Little did they
iuow that that sepulchre was to be-

A Presbyteriaa Administration.
Washington Correspondence N. C. Presbyterian.
"A man who honors his mother is a
man who can always be trusted," used
to be a maxim of one of the best men
I ever knew, and it was called to my
mind hy the fact that the two men
President Clrveland and his private
secretary, Mr. Thurber who will di
vine Providence sparing their lives,
have the most to do with the executive
business of this great nation for the
next four years, both took the oath of
office upou Bibles which each of them
cherishes as his most precious poses
sion because it was once the property
of his mother. Mr. Cleveland's Bible
has been twice used for the "swearing
of a President of the United States.
The simple of these two officials
ought to be brought to the attention of
every young man in the laud. The
last administration was. often jokingly
referred to as a "Presbyterian adminis
tration," but that denomination was
not then so strougly represented as it
is in the present one. With one ex
ception every member of President
Cleveland's cabinet is a Presbyterian.
The exception is Secretary Carlisle,
who is not a hurch member, but is
like Mr. Cleveland, rather inclined to
the Prebyterian church. Surely it is
a matter tor congraiiuiaiiuu mu dm
many of the men who will direct the
government for four years to come are
God-fearing ch urch members.
