DISCOURSE LAST EVENING ON FAITH
AND WORKS AT TRINITY CHURCH.
The Heresy of Some Schools In Teachln
Satiation Without Deeds A llrlef
Iteaurae of Ilia Sermon
The goodly audience which assembled at
Trinity (Methodist Episcopal) church (North)
were treated to a brilliant sermon from one ol
the intellectual giants of the Methodist chureti.
It was perhaps too thoroughly philosophical
in its general scope and range and conse-
quently may have shot over the heads of
many of his hearers but to those who paid
close attention to the sermon it must have
been crjoyed with a keen appreciation.
lliihop Andrews the speilcer is an elderly
gentleman pethaps he has reached his 6oth
year is well preserved has a hale appearance
and a fatherly eipressioo. Ilia hair is suow
while and to a ruddy-beaming face he has
engrafted a scant supply of snowy bumsldes
After the usual exercises but before the
sermon the lliihop ordained Into the ministry
as Elder Rev Mr. Schuler of the German
Methodist church here. Thts rite concluded
Ilishop Andrews appeared and lock for his
tcit the passage found in Romans 3d chapter
30th verse "Do we then make void the faith!
God fotbid ; yet we establish the law"
The Ilishop said the gospel is a system of
faith revealing also the righteousness of God.
Salvation was every man's heritage to be had
for the mere acceptance upon the one solitary
condtionof faith in the Lord Jesus Christ
Here no degrees of moral perfection are re
cognized for by one act of faith must all be
saved and this is the revelation of God's
righteousness in faith. If wotks without faith
are void It follows also that righteousness it'
self would be also worthless. It might seem
and has seemed to some that Taut and John
drew the inference that salvation was obtaina
ble by faith only. Many sects had been led
into the idea that good works were useless.
When Luther aroused by his sturdy utter
ances the suffering and the dying faith of
Europe there arose the Anabaptists
who taught that as Christ had
done so much for us there was no need for us
to supplement a work so perfect by doinc
anything at all. Then followed the antl
Nomians who taught that faith was a suffi
cient compensation for all transgressions and
these in turn were joined by the so-called
Perfectionists teaching that as we bad a per
feet Saviour we had a perfect tight to be per
feet sinners and yet be saved. Some leliev
ing men may think they can live as tinners
but this Is a daring inference against the law
of God This is making void the law through
faith and whatever Impressions our frailly
may desire to draw from this gracious law
there is nothing in the New Testament to show
any lowering of moral responsibility. Christ
la that sublimely simple sermon on the Mount
where his lips overflew with melting grace and
tenderness speaks of deeds in all the bcati
tudes as lor instance; Ulessed are the
meek; blessed are the poor in spirit
blessed are those who hunger and thirst after
righteousness etc. lie tells us in another place
ol "whosoever shall break Ihe least of these
commandments etc." of "whosovcr shall
hear those things of mine and do them.'
From these and scores of other texts that can
be found it Is very evident that Christ did not
mean to relax the stringent obligations of the
moral law. There are some said the gifted
speaker who think of Christ merely as a
shield between us and judgment. This wa:
one atpect of faith but it was not all of it
A true conversion in perfect faith means
when Christ pours into the soul the energies
of a new spiritual life in complete rest with
God trusting in Christ to be ruled and save
Some had Ih-jught that in the epistle of
James there was a substantial (MiTerence of
belief from the doctrine taught in Ihe text.
They had inferred that faith was alone suffi
cient because James says "Abraham was
justified by faith" but if we pause a moment
and take this deeper philosophy we will re-
cognize no variance but we will find
the two men are not speaking of
the same aspect of faith. Paul is
speaking of the sources of faith while James
dilates 00 the proofs of faith. This faith
without gvod works this gospel without the
law doctrine meets with no countenance in
the testament. Wherever the final adjudica-
tion of all men is spoken of they are to be
judged not by their faith or opinions but by
their deeds. At the final parting and separa-
tion of the good from the bad Christ will use
the words : ".Inasmuch as ye did (or did not)
these things." We are told In Romans that
"God will render to every man according to
his deeds eternal life" and these are but
samples of the whole tenor of the New Testa-
ment. It is certain however remarked the
Ilishop that il a man has faith it will trans-
form him Into a new life it is a natural
sequence of the law. The law first comes to a
man thundering into his ear the judgments
If he be guilty lie nys he will
henceforth obey the law 'but his
obedience is of no avail. He becomes
desponding when he hears a voice telling him
to believe on Christ and then betaking him-
self to hit Saviour he rests there completely
rendering his whole self up to Christ to that
the law and the gospel both unite in his sal
vation. We mutt be loyal to God and the
mere membership of church or a few emo-
tional experiencet will not help us alone
He thought It was a blessed thing for a
minister to appear to his congregation as If
just from Calvary his face lustrous with the
divine presence with whom he bad just
communed telling Ihem of the joys of a
heavenly home; these were sweet Interchanges
I Christian )oy. Hut there will also be daya
when he will appear as If he had just came
from Slntl. He sees sin so dreadful and
cankerous and painful though this duty of n
minister he must thunder out the judgments
of God and uncover Ihe pit of hell as it
were. He must tell hit people
these things very plainly and
when he does so when he comes to rebuke
sin his hearers should urge him to the task
telling him "speak tight on thou man uf
The Bishop closed by telling his hearers he
had been frank with them. He desired them
to be charged with the living laith nf the gos
pel while at the same time their good works
were thinlng before men. Ilishop Andrews
is a natural pulpit orator. He requires neither
effort nor study to illustrate a passage with
vivid imagery or to find an appropriate text on
Ihe Instant. He charmed all last evening by
his scholarly way his fatherly manner and
SONS OF HERMANN. .
llAtiner Presentation Hall and Supper on
The existence of a benevolent.order in our
mtdst like the Sons of Hermann is always
worthy of public attention especially when
oneconsiders the quiet undemonstrative way
It has of extending benefactions to the needy.
Hut It Is only when they appear ir social
body in public that their decda of benevolence
kindness and friendship seem to recur to the
mind. The members of this order gave a
most enjoyable ball and supper at the Casino
on Saturday night. The hall was comlotta
bly filled with lair ladies and their escorts who
danced to inspiring strains of sweet music or
partook at midnight of a dainty supper. Hut
the main event of the evening was the presen
tatlon of a new banner to the order by a com
mittce of ladies who had purchased It In
New York at a cost of $275.
Promptly at 8:30 the menibcs of the lodge
tome So in all ranged themselves on the floor
of Ihe hall arrayed In tashes and regalia
while they thus confronted 25 young ladict
and mines beautifully clad In white who
were grouped around Mrs. Louis Sohl who
made the presentation address in a touching
manner. The banner was received on behalf
of the order by her husband the tVesidrnt
Mr. V. Sohl who responded pleasantly in
German. He was followed by Deputy August
Gruetznerand Mr. Jacob Goll in some happy
remarks. At Ihe close of the speech-making
the members broke from the semi-circle they
had formed and with much curiosity pro
ceeded to examine this beautiful and cottly
gift. It it made of gold and tttin with appro
priate mottoes while the whole is surmounted
by a golden eagle. The oil painting ol Her
mann the founder of Ihe order Is a chaste
piece of fine att and said to be the costliest
banner in the city.
This order was established first In this
country in New York in 1840 though It Is o
German origin. It wat established here in
lSOo.hat grown prosperous in numbers and rich
in the memories of the good it has done
has now 85 members made up from the
ranks of tome of the best gentlemen in our
city. It Is but proper to give here the list of
the ladies all members of the order who con'
tributed and raised funds for the purchate ol
thlt handsome banner. They are Mrt. L.
Sohl Mrt. Francisca Hitter Mrs. liar bar a
Manger Mrs. John Wolfram Mrt. August
Gruetzner Mrs. Wm. Lange and Mrs. Geo
May the manly tons and gentle daughters
of Hermann bask long In the smiles of pros.
perily to enjoy many annual entertainments
like that of Saturday night.
