Tho text is i John ii 1, a two have an nov Cufo with Tho father Jesus Christ Tho righteous. A standing in a courtroom Yon suy to yourself a at this bar crime has of thu been arraigned it this witness stand Tho oath has often Beau Tukan at this jurors Bench the verdict has Becu rendered it this judge s desk sentence bos Boen Proukou used. A but i have to toll Yon today of u trial higher than any Oyer and ter Miner or circuit or supremo or Nam leery. It is Tho trial of every Christian Muu for Tho Ulfo of his soul. This trial is different from any other in Tho fact that it is both civil Aud criminal. Tho issues it Stahl Are Tromon dons and i shall in my Sermon show you first what Are Tegro Nudson complaint then who Are the witnesses in Tho canuso and lastly who Are Tho advocates. Who a trial is called on Tho first filing is to have the indictment read. Stand up then o Christian Man and hear Tho indictment of Tho court of High heaven against thy soul. It is an indict meet of Teu counts for thou Hast directly or indirectly broken All Tho Teu . Y of know How it thundered on Sinai and when go Camo Down How Tho Mountain rocked and Tho Smoko ascended As from a soldering Furnace and Tho Dur Knoss gathered thick Aud Tho loud does trumpet uttered Tho words a Tho soul that Siu Ueth it Hull Diol Quot Aro you guilty or not guilty do not put in a negative plot too Quick for i have to announce that a All have sinned and come Short of the glory of god. There is Louo that doth Good no not one. Whosoever shall keep Tho whole Law yet offend in one Point he is guilty of All.14 do not therefore to too Host in pronouncing yourself not guilty. A Rokon contract. This lawsuit before us also Cburgos you with 1- breaking of a solemn contract. Hlasny a Tiro did to Promise to to Tho lord a to got Down on our Kupecs Ami , a to lord i us Toiuo now and forever.44 did you keep Tho Promise have Yon stood up to Tho contract i go Buck to your first communion. You remember it As Wii of if it were yesterday. You know How Tho vision of Tho Cross Rose before you. You remember How from Tho head und Tho hands and Tho Side and Tho feet there Curnc bleeding Forth these two words Quot remember you recall How Tho cup of communion trembled in your baud when you first took it and As in a Soa Sholl you May Hoar or Ali id you Hoar Tho roaring of Tho surf ecu after Tho Shell nos been taken Turc Beach so you lifted Tho cup of communion and you heard in it Tho surging of the great Ocean of a Savlon a agony and Yon came Forth from that communion service with Faco shining As though you had Boon on Tho mount of transfiguration and the very air seems tremulous with Tho Lovo of Jesus and Tho Woods Aud Tho leaves Aud Tho Gross and the Birds were brighter and sweeter voiced than Ever before and you said Down in Tho very Depths of your soul a lord thou know est All things lion know est that i Lovo Kluvo you kept the bar gain o Christian menu Havo you not sometimes faltered Whu you ought to Hugo Boon True have you not been proud when you ought to have been Humble Honvo Yon not played the Coward when you ought to Honvo Boon Tho hero 1 Chargo it upon you and i Shargo it upon myself to Havo broken Tho contract. Still further this lawsuit claims damages it your bands. Tho greatest slander on Tho Christian religion is an inconsistent professor. The Bible says religion is Ono thing to by on inconsistency say religion is some other thing and what is More Cpl Ohrablo about it i that people can Sec faults in others while they cannot so c y in themselves. If Yon shall at an Timo find some miserable old gossip with imperfections from Tho Crown of her Hood to Tho sole of Hor foot a perfect Blotch of sin herself she will go tattling. Tattling tattling All Tho years of. Her life about Tho inconsistencies of others having no idea that she is inconsistent herself. God save Tho world from the gossip female Aud male i think the males Aro Tho worst i now the Chariot of Christ salvation goes on through j the world but it is our inconsistencies my Broth Ron that Block up the wheels Watilo All along Tho Lino there ought to Havo been cast nothing but Palm Broncos Aud Tho Swiont Bhoola Havo been lifted a who Satuuu to Tho son of David Quot now Yon Havo heard Tho indictment read. Are you ready to blood guilty or not guilty perhaps you Aro not ready yet to plead. Then the trial will go on. The witnesses will to called and to shall have the mutter decided. In Tho name of god i now make proclamation Oyez Toyozi of Cal whosoever hath anything to offer in this trial in which god is the plaintiff and Tho Christian soul Tho do fondant. Lot him now step Forth and give testimony in this solemn trial. Call Tho attn mrs. To first witness i Call upon Tho stand in behalf of the prosecution is the world All critical and observant of Christian character. You know that there arc people around you who perpetually banquet of the frailties of gods children. You May know if Yon Havo lived in the country that a Crow cores for nothing so much As Carrion. There Aro those who imagine that out of the faults of christians they can make a Bridge of boots across Thost roam of death and they Ore going to try it. But alas for the mistake when they get Midstream away will go the Bridge Aud Down will go their souls to perdition. 6 world of the greedy Eyo and the hard heart come of the stand now and testify in behalf of Tho prosecution against this Christian soul on trial. What do you know about this Christian Man a ooh a says the world a i know a great Deal about him. talks about putting his treasures in heaven but he i the sharpest Man in a Trade i Ever knew. seems to want us to believe that to is a fill to of Goff but he is just full of imperfections. I do not know but i am a great Deal better than to is now. Oftentimes he is very earthly and to talks so Little about Christ and so much about himself. I am very glad to testify that this is a bad Man. Quot Stop o world with Tho greedy Eye and hard heart i fear you Aro too much interested in this trial to give impartial evidence lot All those who hear the testimony of this witness know that Thero is in old family Quartel Between these two parties. There always has been a variance Between Tho world and the Church and while Tho world on Tho witness stand today has told a great Doul of truth about this Christian Man you must Tako it All with much allowance rom Obering that they still keep Tho old grudge Good. O world of Tho greedy Eyo and the hard heart that will do you May sit Down. The second witness i Call in this coed is conscience. Who Art thou o conscience what is your business where were you born what Are you doing hero a Job a says conscience a i was bom in heaven. I come Down to befriend this Man. I Honvo lived with him. X Havo instructed him. I have warned him. X showed him Tho right and Tho wrong advising him to Toko the one and eschew to other. I Havo kindled a great Light in his Sony. With a whip of scorpions i have scourged his wickedness and i Havo tried to theor him when doing right and yet i am compelled to testily on Tho stand today that to has sometimes Ropoc cd my Mission. Of How Many cups of life have i pressed to his lips that to dashed Down and How often has to stood with his hard Heel on the bleeding heart of Tho Sou of god i it pains to very much that i Liao to testify against this Chris Luu Man and yet i must in Bohnof of him who will in no also Olen the guilty Bay that this Christian Man has Dono wrong. To has been worldly. To has been neglectful. To has done a thousand things he ought not to have Dono and left Uit Dono a thousand things to ought to Havo done. A that will do Cosci Coo. You can sit Down. In Oportot testimony. Tho third witness i Call in to Case is in in gel of god. Bright add slain id one what docs thou hero what Bast thou to say against this Man on trial Quot of Quot says the Ungelo i Havo been a messenger to him. I Havo guarded him. 1 have watched him. With this Wing i Bubo defended him und oftentimes when he knew it not i led hint into Green pastures and beside the still Waters. I snatched from him Tho poisoned cd Melicca. When Bud spirits come upon him to destroy him i fought them Back with infinite Florce Noss and yet i Havo to testify Toi Tuy that he had rejected my Mission. has not done of he ought to Hugo done. Though i came from Tho sky he drove me Back. Though with Wing i defended him and though with this voice i wooed him i have to Unno uce his multiplied imperfections. I dare not keep Buck Tho testimony for then i is id not Doro to appear again amongst Tho sinless ones before to great White throne.�?�. Thero is Only Ono More witness to be called on behalf of the prosecution and that is Tho great the holy the August the omnipotent spirit of god. We Bow Down before him. Holy spirit know est thou this Man a ooh yes a says the holy one Quot i know him. I Havo striven with him 10,000 times and though sometimes to did seem to repent he fell Back again As often from his first estate. Ten thousand times 10,000 has to grieved me although Tho Bible warned him saying Grieve not Tho holy ghost quench not the spirit a yes he has driven Moback. Though x am to third person of the Trinity he has trampled on my Mission and the blood of the atonement that i brought with which to cleanse his soul he sometimes despised. I came from the throne of god to convert and Comfort and Sanctify und yet look at that Man and see what he is compared with wont a resisted x would Havo made Tho evidence on the part of the Proee cution has closed. Now let Tho defense bring on the rebuttal testimony. What Liate you o Christian soul to bring in reply to this evidence of the world of Tho conscience of Tho Angel and of the holy ghost no evidence Aro All these things True Quot Yea. Unclean unclean Quot says every Christinn soul. What do you not begin to tremble a the thought of condemnation Sommons i p to have come now to the most interesting part of this great trial. The Evi Donco rat in the advocates speak. The profess n of of advocate is full of re so Sib Ity. In England and the United states Toncre have Arisen men who in this calling Havo been honoured by their race and thrown contempt upon those who in Tho profession have been guilty of a great Many mean Nesses. That profession will be honorable As Long of it has attached to it such names As Mansfield and Marshall and Story and Kent and Southard and William Wirt. The courtroom has sometimes been the scene of very marvelous and thrilling things. Some of you remember Tho famous Girard will cose where one of our advocates pleaded Tho cause of Tho Bible and Christi Unity in masterly Anglo Saxon every paragraph a Thuu Norbolt. Some of you Havo read of the famous trial in Westminster Hall of we Ren Hastings the despoiled of India. That great Man had conquered India by splendid talents by courage by bribes by Gigantic dishonesty. The whole world had rung with applause or condemnation. Gathered in Westminster Hall a place in which so kids had been inaugurated was one of the most famous audiences Ever gathered. Foreign ministers and princes Sot there. Peers Marohn in Clad in Ermine and Gold. Mighty men and women from All lands looked Down upon the scene. Amid All that pomp and splendor and amid an excitement such As has Seldom been seen in any courtroom Edmund Burke advanced in a speech which will last of Long As the English language concluding with this burning charge which made Warren Hastings Oringe and cower a i impeach him in the name of the commons hons of parliament whose Trust he has betrayed. I impeach him in Tho name of the English nation whose ancient Honor he has sul a led. I impeach him in the name of the people of India whose country to has turned into a desert. And lastly in the name of human nature in the name of both sexes in the name of every age and rank i impeach him As the common enemy and oppressor of but i turn from Tho recital of these memorable occasions to n grander trial 1 and i have to Tell you that in this trial of the Christian for the life of his soul the advocates Are mightier Wiser and More eloquent. The evidence All being in severe and Stern in stick rises on by Hulf of Tho prosecution Tomoko Sisplea. With the Bible open in his band he crude the Low Stern and inflexible and the penalty Quot the soul that a Iimoto it shall then to buys a to thou judge and lawgiver this is thine own statute and All the evidence in Earth and heaven agrees that Tho Man has sinned against these enactments. Now lot the sword leap from its scabbard. Shall a Man go through Tho very flames of sinus Nusin ged let the Law be cd outed. Let judgment to pronounced. Let him die. I demand that he diet Quot o Christian docs it not look very dark for thee who will plead on thy Side in so forlorn a cause sometimes a Man will be brought into a court of Law Anil he will have no friends and no Money und judge will look Over the Bur Aud say Quot is there any one who will Volunteer to take this Many a Caso and defend him a and some Yonng Man rises up and says a i will be his counsel,41 perhaps starting on from that very Point to a Groat and Brilliant career. Now in this matter of Tho Sony As you have nothing to for counsel do Yon think that any one will Volun Cor yes yes i so Ono rising. is a Young Muu Only 33 years of ago. I see Bis countenance suffused with tears and covered with blood and All to galleries of heaven Aro thrilled with the spectacle. Thanks be unto god Quot to Havo an advocate with Tho father Jesus Christ the 0 Christian soul your ease begins to look better. I think perhaps after All Yon May not have to die. Tho Best advocate in the universe bos taken your Side. No one was Ever so qualified to defend you. knows All the Law All its demands All its penal tips. is always ready. No new turn of the Cuso can Surprise him and to will plead for you for nothing As earnestly As though you brought a world of treasure to his feet. Besides that he bus undertaken. The Rosc of thousands who were As forlorn us you und he has never lost a Case. Courage o Christian soul i ii think that after All there May be some Chance for Yon for Tho great adv Ocuto rises to make his plea. To says Quot i admit All that has been proved against my client i adm Italy these sins Aye More but look at that wounded hand of Mino and look it that other wounded Bond and at my right foot and at my left foot. By All these wounds i plead for his Cleu rude. Count nil Tho drops of my tears. Count All the drops of my blood. By Tho humiliation of Bethlehem by Tho sweat of Gethsemane by the sufferings of Tho Cross i demand that lie go free. On this Arm to hath leaned to this heart he hath flown in my tears he hath washed on my righteousness to Huth depended. Let him go free. 1 am the Ransom. Let him escape the lash i took the scourging. Let the cup pass from him i drank it to the Dregs. Put on him the Crown of life for i Havo worn the Crown of thorns. Over against my throne of shame set his throne of Triumph a the judgment. Well the counsel of both sides Havo spoken and there is Only Ono More thing now remaining and that is the awarding of the judgment. If Yon have Over been in a courtroom you know the silence and solemnity when the verdict is about to be rendered or Tho judgment about to be Given. About this Sony on trill shall it be saved or shall it to lost attention above around by Neath All Tho universe cries a hear Hoar a the judge rises and gives this do vision never to be changed never to be revoked Quot there is therefore now no condemnation to them who Aro in Christ Tho soul on it sus hath loaned for Reposo 1 will not i will not. Desort to his foes. That soul though All hell should Endeavor to shake ill never no never no never forsake. But my friends Thero is coming a Day of trial in which not Only the Saint but the sinner no car. That Day of trial will come very suddenly. The Farmer will be at the plow the merchant will be in Tho counting room the Woodman will be ringing his a on Tho hic Kories Tho Weaver will have his foot on the treadle the manufacturer will to walking amid the Buzz of looms and the Clack of flying much query the counsel May be at the bar pleading the Law the minister May he in the pulpit pleading the gospel the drunkard May be reeling amid Bis cups a it a a the Blasphemer with the oath cat get Between his Teeth. To Tho Sun hides. Night comes Down at mid non. The stars appear at noon today. The Earth shudders and throbs. There in earthquake opens Aud a City sinks As a Crocodile would crunch a child. Mountains Roll in their sockets und scud Down their Gifu mitc Cliffs in Avalanche of Nyk. I livers pause in their Chase for the sea. And cd an. Up euring cries to flying Al let und Ili Majiyu. Beasts Bollow and mean and snuff up the darkness. Clouds Fly like flocks of Swift eagles. Great thou Ere beat and Boom and burst Titars shoot Aud fall. The t mighty rising of his throne do Elaref time shall la no longer und the i gel s Trump repeats it till All the la hear and Tho continents of dead to their feet crying Quot time shall be no longer of of that Day will you to ready 1 have show you Bow Well the Christian will get off in Bis trial.
