brotherhood where each should be his brother's keeper and where each should love his neighbor hardly open to denial that such was the theory and such its logical outcome And as a ther of this we read that among the early Christians there were no poor for they had ali things in common But what a gap between that theory and the practise of What a mockery of Christ's teachings is as What a chasm growing ever deeper has opened up between what Christ and what his professed followers do What a breach ever widening has been made between Christ's church and those for whom Christ was ever solicitous and for whom he was always filled with compassion the The church to be sure keeps its open and professes to extend a welcome to all But the time is long since past when a large portion of the people to regard the invitation as made in good faith and those versed in claim that the increase in church membership does not at all keep pace with the increase in population What is the Why docs so large a share of the people stand aloof from the church the one institution of all others where they should find com- fort help and Is it because the teachings of the arc anti- and not

which it It may be said that man's selfishness and greed lie at the bottom of this as of nearly all the evil conditions which to-day beset us and doubtless that answer would con- tain the main substance of the truth in the matter But have these tendencies been combatted with due diligence and vigor by those whose duty it was to truths Christ taught as He taught them and not as the varying
