For Sunday Afternoon. "CHRIST AND THE BELIEVER." (From the London "Christian" of Feb. 6, '92.) [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

For Sunday Afternoon. CHRIST AND THE BELIEVER." BY DR. A. T. PXEBSON. (From the London "Christian" of Feb. 6, 'OS.) AVhat is tlie difference between Christ's ■work for the world at large and His office for us as believers? One scripture (John ii, 1, u) makes the distinction clear. . Jesus Christ the Righteous is not au advocate or paraclete for the world; that is the family blessing belong ing only to the children of God. But he is the propitiation or mercy seat for the sins of the whole world, in common with the sius of believers. Let us consider, first, the broader work which Christ does for those who never theless finally reject Him and perish. It is in a representative sense that our Lord is the second man or the last Adam (1. Cor. xv., *15, 47). He is the second man because He follows the first, and He is the last Adam because there is no other to follow Him. Adam ■was a figure of Him Who was to come (Rom. v. 14.) in that both represented the whole human race, a It was the misf...

Obiter Dicta, [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

Obiter Dicta, Whilst officiating at a Confirmation sen-ice in one of the Ii. C. Churches last week, the Coadjutor-Archbishop, in liis address to the children, advised them ^ot to rend the daily papers. No surprise utvl be expressed at this statement, for it only sJrves to sustain the traditions of the R. C. Church in keeping* the people in ignorance. It suits the priests of the R. C. Church to stifle all attempts on the part of their flocks at studying literature or reading the daily Press, for they would begin to question the genuineness of many customs in the Church. Any religion which cannot survive the test of growing intelligence must be, and is, based upon corruption and fraud. Eatlier than counsel children to avoid reading, the most sensible course would be to encourage it. It must be remembered that the boys and girls of to-day must inevitably become the men and women of to-morrow, who will be called upon to obtain their livelihood and eke out an existence in a world beset w...

More About Easter. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

More About Easter. In my concluding remarks in last article under- the above heading I showed that the popular festivities called Easter as observed by Romanists, were not of primitive Christian origin nor of Scriptural appointment. I shall now try and show, in a brief sketch, their Pagan Origin. The name Easter has boon shown to be peculiar to the British Isles. Several writers on heathen mythology explain tlio English word Eautor as notliing else tluiu Astarte, one of tlio titles of Beltis, the Queen of heaven, whose name as pronounced by the people of Nineveh, according to Layard, was | evidently identical with tliat now in common use in Britaiu. On the Assyrian monuments the name is Islitar. She was called by the Saxons Eoestem, and in England Easter. The worship of Bell and Astarte was very early introduced into Britain by the Druids. "As Baal," says Hislop, " tlio husband of Astarte, was worshipped in Britain, it will not ho difficult to beliove that Ills consort Astarte was a...

Ritualism in the Churches OF England and Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

Ritualism in tlie Cliui'clies i OF England and Ireland. " The Church Times," a noted High Church paper, lately devoted a whole column to a description of the great Albert Hall Protestant Demonstration. It is signed " One Who Was Tliere^' As every ticket given out had on it (printed) that the holder and user was in full sympathy with its objects, it is evident that the writer got in under false colours. Mr. Walter "Walsh (author of the Secret Histoiy of the Oxford Movement), in his column of "The English Churclmiau," just to hand, referring to this gentleman, says:— " He did not get a ticket for the reporter's table, where, of course, all sorts of people are admitted, but, to quote liis own words, 'By perhaps somewhat Jesuitical means I became possessed of a ticket of admission, I thought that I might lmve an evening's amusement.' He does not, however, seem to have enjoyed himself, or to have had any veal amusement at all, for, to judge by the tone of his article, lie passed a most m...

How the World Wags. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

How the World Wags. By Aitocs. New South Wales should take a slice oat of New Zealand's police policy and. import an up\x=req-\ to-date man to clean the Augean stables: of the Jonathan Wild department of this State. It is simply becoming a howling scandal the way Sunday tradiug is being carried on by a large number of fruiterers, hotelkeepers, tobacconists, etc., iu Sydney, and no geuuiue attempt made on the part of the police to stamp the evil ort. The carrying out of the law at present is only a mere farce, and what makes it worse is,-that some hotelkeepers and fruiterers are allowed to treat " the law's delay " with the greatest impunity, while any attempt on the part of similar traders to do business in prohibited hours is firmly put down. This corrupt-practice of allowing the police to carry the law into effect, only when it suits their own personal irclination, should be altered at once. The Poline Department on the whole is very much in need of reform, aud would be in a much ...

What Christian Endeavor is Doing [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

I What Christian Endeavor is Doing In a certain Methodist Church iu South Australia, on. a recent Sunday evening, the preacher, owing to sickness, was unable to take his appointment. That the cougregatiou should not be disappointed, the members of the Endeavour Society, led by the Viee-Presideut, took the service. Eleven excellent papers were read upon the subject of the Lord's Prayer, which was taken sentence by sentence. # # # *• Northam (W.A.) Methodist Society 1ms lately had such au opportunity for opeu-air work as seldom presents itself to an isolated country Society. A very large number of nieu are at present engaged on the Coolgardie Water Scheme, which is in course of construction through tho town.

Social. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

Social. Tlie anniversary social of the L.P.B. Societies was held in the Town ■ Hall, Balmain, last Friday night. There was a large attendance of members, and dancing was kept up with great spirit till the .u sma " hours of the next morning. Wellington said it was just as impossible to describe a battle as it was a ball, and the liistoric saying of the Waterloo warrior reigns paramount in our mind, when it comes to a detailed description of tlie many pretty frocks worn by the beauties of Sydney and suburbs at last week's festivity. The floor was as smooth as the tongue of an insurance canvasser, and the catering was worthy of a Lord Mayor's banquet. The scene at midnight was particularly gay and enchanting realizing the poet's lines parodied :— There was a sound of revelry by night, And Sydney's rmbitrb had gathered then Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men; A thousand hearts beat happily, and when lluac aioso with its voluptuous swell...

The Queen Mother and the Duke of Guise brought * their uuited influence to boar upon the King. He gave a passionate consent to the plan they proposed, telling them to leave no Huguenot alive to reproach liim with the deed. The following night of Saturday, The Eve of St. Bartholomew's Day, was decided upon, and all arrangements for the massacre were made. The gates of the city were to be closed, so that none could leave without the King's consent: the boats upon the Seine were to be removed to the opposite shore; the citizens were to arm themselves and give their support to the King's troops j the houses of all Huguenots were to be marked with a cross, as a signal for attack, while every Roman Catholic was to wear a cross upon his hat, and a white handkerchief tied around his arm. The signal for action was to be the ringing of the great bell of the " Palais de Justice...

The Prisoner of the Vatican. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 12 April 1902

The Prisoner of the Vatican. Last Sunday evening, in the I.O.O.F. Temple, Elizabeth street, the Rev. George "Walters, minister of the Australian Church, delivered a sermon in reply to Archbishop Kelly's recent lecture on " The Prisoner of the Vatican." The interest taken in the subject was evinced by the large congregation, additional chairs having to be placed in the hall. Having quoted some remarks in the London " Christian World," by the Rev. J. G. Gbeenhough, to the effect that the Romish Church is aiming at pie subjugation of the Australian people, the preacher referred to the new paper, Tite "Watcii.max, which would I servo as a counter-blast to the efforts of the I Romish Church, and provided, at least, one newspaper in Sydney which would have the courage to speak out upon the question. The words of Christ, 11 My kingdom is not of tliis world," were put in contrast to the Pope's demand for temporal power, which really was equivalent to liis saying: "My kingdom is of this worl...
