BISHOP CANDLER S ADVICE
(Stanly News-Herald t
■ Dodge politics," is ihsr advice
which Bishop Candler dishes out to
his brethern of the Methodist min
istry. He quotes the pastoral ad
vice given out in 1865 by the
Southern Bishops and we get this:
“ Know your high calling. Preach
Christ and Him crucified. Do not
preach politics. You have no com
1 mission to preach politics. The
divinity of the church is never
more strikingly displayed than when
it holds on its ever-straightforward
way in tfte midst of worldly commo
If all the ministers of this coun
try would follow up that advice
there would be no temptation nor
necessity for them to preach poli
tics. We somehow can’t hardly
agree with the minister who insists j
on using his pulpit for preaching
politics. Ministers are citizens and !
as such they have a right to and
should vote and take part in poli
tics as other good citizens do, but
have they the right to preach poli
tics from their pulpits? Would j
their preaching not be more effec- ,
tive were they to follow Paul’s
example and preach "Christ and
