k / I AM SET FOR DEFENCE OFi VOL. 1. IE GOSPEL, - • mmrnM WEATHERFORD, TBX§§, JUNK 22, 1883. ClTi/iiSS' DEPARTMENT. It seems oppressive to fino a mini for getting drunk and license the men who made him so. It seems strange that a man should tell you to tako no man's opinions for the truth, and then proceed to give you his own in- terpretation and urge your ac- ceptance. 1— ■ Sectionalism: is a miserable substitute for either religion or patriotism. The locality of one's birth or residence has no relation whatever to loyalty to God or the love of one's country. • Do the liberties which are called "personal" infringe upon the rights of others ' If so, in so far as society is thus endan- gered, the advocates of personal rights in that sense are the ene- mies of the public weal. When the Christian citizen works so hard all the week that his Sundays are a lapse to "tired nature's sweet restorer," it would be well for him to con- sider what claim the Lord's time lias upon him, and whether...

Sill / I J,;, HMi . " • i' ■,:>:■< ft •/ TEXAS METHODIST: FRIDAY, JUNE 22. as?- The Tilingo Carpenter, Philip Wood was a village car- penter wlio ha<l developed an nucoimnou skill iu wood-carv- ing and had made some striking figures for the adormneut of his Kweetheart's house, a'lass above himself in rank aud fortune. In hope of improving his circum- stances, and thus lessening the disparity between them, he went to Loudon where he sought work iu vain until his store of money was reduced to a single guiuea. The huge dome of St. Paul's was then rising above the smoke of Loudon. Phillip wood ap plied to the foreman for work in carving wood for the interior. Repulsed by him, he haunted the place day by day, and at last he attracted the attention of the íírcat Sir Christoplien Wren himself. "What have you been used to carving ?" asked the architect. The carpenter in the extremity of liis agitation could only stam- mer out: "Troughs, your worship." "Troughs!" satd Sir Christo- p...

How little «ráele closed a Saloon. Gracie was a very little girl, only six years old, but beautilul and loving. She was a modest, thoughtful child aud when her father, who loved her very much wanted her to come into, his sa- loon that'he might introduce her to the men lounging there and hear them praise her beauty, she would say,"No, papa, no, no make the naughty men go away and then I'll come in." There was a children's temper- ence society in the town in charge of the Woman's' Temperance Union and little. Gracie and her brother «till younger were invited to attend. The father gladly, con- sented for he liked much to see Graics dress up and have people notice her. Everything was new and strange to Gracie. She had never seen any one pray before, and when the leader talked about the great God and ask...

Perfect love is the state of the soul superinduced by entire Kanctiflcation. They only who are wholly sanctified enjoy per- fect love. This state is coexist- out with the act of consecration. Interference with the sacrifice we may have placed 011 the altar will simultaneously redflco us from.this high state in the divine life. __ A man may be a theoretical and practical Christian, but at the «uno tiniH know nothing of ex- ...

[Special Corresiionduiicoof rc.-XGS Methodist.] Jioligion is perfoutíóu, and witho&t it there cannot be per- fection. If religion is not perfec- tion tlieu it is imperfection. But what is religion? If it is imper- fect is it not a heavy assault upoii the character of God'? If it íg a reflection of his nat«re and his graces does not, the reflec- tion show usan imperfect God? Then we are pot astonished at thoso religionists whoso creeds detract from -'the glory of the incorruptable God" to reject the doctrino of Christian Perfection. Take Calvinism for instance and illustrate its contradictions. In one breath it teaches by implica- tion the doctrine of perfection in the dogmas of election and per- neverauce. Yet when olection supercedes conversion as it most certainly does, and the elect are caught sinning, they tell us, "It is not I that ...

/ TEXAS METH ODIST : FRIDAY, JUNE 22. TPaMsHa, v._ '••: >i •m Constraining Lo ve. •THE CON- LOVE OF CHRIST STRAINETH US." This subject occupies a very important place in revelation, and is the very escence of glory of the Gospel. But "it passeth knowledge." And though we may not be able in time or eter- nity to kuow it in its sublime heights, iu its profound depths, in its immense breadth or in its t'ttirnal length, yet it is the Meuad privilege of all to know enough of this love by precious experience in our own hearts, to «ive us "peace and joy in the Holy Ghost," and to cause us with the apostle "to count all tilings but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ .1 <;<us our Lord." It constrains us to identify ourselves with His cause. With this love iu our hearts, the cause of our _bleascl Master becomes our cause. We have a personal interest in its success, for the prosperity of Zion is our pros purity; a d the peace of his one soul; neither said auy of them t...

' . ■ TEXAS METHODIST : FRIDAY, JUNE 22. ÜM wh «glgíltí Weights and lYIngs. by ebv. dr. deems When at our Mouthy Commun- ion a man takes his place to be received as a member into the Church of which I am the pastor, this question invariably suggests itself to me, will he prove to me to be a weight or a wing! Will he burden my heart or cheer my spirit? Every member of every Chris- tian Church whose pastor is a true-hearted man, in love with the work of the Master, ought to know that he is either a help or a hin- drance to that pastor. No true pastor can be indifferent to the character and behavior and in- fluence ofany'inember of his flock. He knows that each is doing some- thing for the salvation of souls, or somotliing to retard the prog- ress of the gospel amongst men. No Christian man can live a life of neutrality for a single hour;. and that the pastor certainly knows. The success of the pastor is to be measured by the number of sotils brought by his ministry to the enjoyment of...
