"I believe God's displeasure Is resting upon Germany because of har disbe lief In Hla word, because of her dis belief in the divinity of His son, and because of her disbelief in His word," declared Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman, V. D.K to a large Mon treat audience during the course of a sermon in which he , was making an appeal for tne .church to do its full part in keep ing the covenant which God has es tablished between the church and himself. Dr. Chapman has made a number of references to the war and its rela tion to tha church in his sermons during the evangelistio period at Montreal. Speaking of America and tha war he said that America had reached the time when she hai gone pleasure mad, when she had been blinded by wealth, when she had lost her hold upon Christ and had forgot ten God and His word, and that God Is speaking through the war and through the numerous other calamities that have befallen the country In recent months and is urging men and women to hear Him when He calls, and that if they will hear. He will bless, but If they will not hear, they will be brought faoa to face with the judg ment seat of Christ. He said further in this connection that the time had come w?en the church had lost the consciousness of God, had lost the power of prayer and some ministers had pushed God Into a secondary place, arl that no church or no na tion can prosper when It crowds God out of its life. Pr. Chapman has expressed the opinion that the present war will not end until the power of God intervenes and brings it to an end, and he urges mat tne great Question before the church In this regard is how to secure tha favor of God to the extent that He will brinx His power to bear in the near future and end the tragedy of oauie. no insists tnat Ms favor can not ba secured until the church so humbles Itself as to give God the first place In its life, which is His rightful place, ana lives so close to Him and in such harmony with hts will that he will assert his power to bring peace to tne earin ana win "in wrath remem ber mercy."
