Abbeville Press and Banner (Newspaper) - September 15, 1909, Abbeville, South CarolinaThe Abbeville press and Banner j by w. W. & w. R. Bradley. Abbeville 8. C., wednesday september 15, 1909. Established 1844, -. " " a. In methodist Church the pastor the Rev. Henry Stokes Speaks of arminia ism. Gives scripture authority for his belief and warns the people to continue to be faithful and to hold fast to that which is Good. Last sunday morning a goodly number of worshippers assembled in the methodist Church at Abbeville. The pastor lev. Henry Stokes conducted the service Takin for his text St. John i us " from that time Many of the disciples went Back and walked no More with the preacher commenced by saying that he feared that the distinctive features of the methodist Church had not heretofore been presented As often or As fully As they should have been. For this reason he would present this morning his belief in some of the grounds upon which the arminia Faith was founded. He thought to inherit the Linal Blessing which was vouchsafe to the faithful by our Saviour we must be steadfast in our Faith and must make a perpetual Light to keep sin from our minds and hearts. That at any time sin might enter the heart and Lead us into Ovll ofor o. Ill Tuo Aoi Eva Ion ice duo Iii pies were furnished to show that some of the Best men in the Pew and even the sacred desk had abandoned godliness for unrighteousness. Men in no station inline were Safe or exempt from temptation or danger. Conversion was no guarantee that we might not later on fall into sinful and evil ways through which we might forfeit our Hope of eternal happiness in the world to come. The life of the Christian must be a vigilant and unrelenting watchfulness to guard against letting sin into the mind and heart. He himself after preaching the gospel for fourteen years Felt the need of unremitting care i guarding himself from the possibility of committing in live minutes some act which would ruin the character he had so Long i and so earnestly Laboured to establish. He thought it was necessary to keep a vigilant watch to prevent the strongest and Thebes of men from falling into that sin which might ruin the character of a lifetime and Send the soul out into that night and darkness which is perpetual. Let him that thin Ceth lie stance to wac Oncea lest he in the scripture we Are often admonished to be on guard or to Arm ourselves against danger. Even human Wisdom would not guard us against impossible danger. Inhuman Wisdom would not guard us against impossible danger Why should the divine Wisdom do so ? the Mother in this Beautiful and level country does not warn her children against the danger of a precipice which does not exist. The divine Wisdom guards us Only against possible danger and the Wise Man will take heed to the warnings of scripture lest he fall. Our calvinistic friends rely upon the following words to satisfy themselves that once converted and brought to the foot of the Cross salvation would surely follow i to All those who embraced the Faith for i am persuaded that neither death nor life nor Angels nor principalities nor Powers nor things present nor things to come nor Heicht. Nor depth nor any other creature shall be Able to separate us from the love of god which is in Christ Jesus our the preacher said that he fully agreed with that sentiment. Every word of it is True. But my friends it is nowhere said that by his consent sin May not enter the heart of Man and do that which neither Powers nor principalities May not or cannot do. Our final salvation then depends upon our own Faith in the redeemer and our service to the father which includes Faith purity of heart and Correct living to which of course is Given or added to us that Grace which comes from above. Satan himself was once an Angel but because of that innate Power which neither life nor death could control he fell and from that time he walked no More with the father of us All did not create the evil. It was in the heart and obeying the promptings of evil satan fell from his High estate. It was the evil in his heart not any outside Power that induced one of the disciples to betray our Saviour at the last supper. The thirty pieces of Silver referred to in the betrayal being about equal to $18.00 of our Money. If the idea that conversion included Assurance of the divine irrevocable decree of Linal salvation was Correct then the a minian doctrine was in no Way shaken. If calvinism was right in the Contention that there was no falling from Grace then the conversion of the armenian was As effect Iveas the conversion of the calvinist and the armenian had an equal Chance of salvation though he might fear loss at the last. Our constant watchfulness does not militate against our chances of final salvation. Some May contend that what we believe matters Little. But i Tell you my friends that a Man s actions or his conduct in life Are largely governed by what he believes. If he believes in the right he is much More Apt to act right than if he believes in the wrong. We must so guard our minds and hearts As to keep out that evil which cannot enter except by our own consent. At the conclusion of the Sermon the preacher read hymn 493, which was afterwards ung by the choir two verses of which hymn Are As follows my soul be on the guard Itell /i1uuoouu 1vco 11 Louthe hosts of sin Are pressing hard to draw thee from the skies.

The ancient romans who were far ahead of us in 1 the matter of Road building a Zeindl j cited the proper course. Many of their roads Are As Good today As when they were built and Are among the Ibert in Italy. They Bulit roads to last for Ages. We should build roads for future generations and let those generations Nelp pay for them by issuing Bonds to mature in their Day. A. K Road prescription. It his bomb found Good in this Section.
