T. Russell Brooklyn Tabernacle delivered the address. The spacious and elegant auditorium was crowded so that an overflow meeting with another speaker was deemed and if ahle. On the i will i in Heliend tie speaker were several Hundred Wen in Clu iii a number . The Audi knee As a whole was a very in Tellini int one. The honorable j. F. Rutherford. Attorney at la w. Introduced pastor Kussell who said a 1 take lor my text the word the lord through the Prophet Quot say be not. A confederacy to All them to whom this people shall say a confederacy neither fear be their fear nor be afraid Quot Isaiah Vili i j. The desirable Ness oneness in the Church Christ is beyond dispute. The impropriety sectarianism division is now generally conceded although Twenty years ago Many defended the divided condition the Church As being helpful. They pointed to our lord s words i am the Vine and be Are the branches every Branch in me that Heareth not fruit my father the Husbandman Tabeth away. And every Branch that Heareth fruit he Prineth that it May bring Forth More fruit John Xiv 1-5. They claimed that the denominations were the branches. The evident teaching the master Here is that his people Are related to him in an individual sense and not As parties sects denominations and that they Are dealt with from the individual standpoint As one Church amp and not Many. St. Paul enunciated the same great truth i corinthians Sii 13declaring that the lord Jesus is the head the Church which is his body and that As the human body has Many members under the full control the head except when diseased so the Church As members in particular the body Christ Are All to be subject to the lord As their head. They Are All to be so connected with their head and thus with each other that when one suffers All suffer with it. And when one rejoices All rejoice with it. Because they All have Fellowship in the one spirit the head. Hence the Eye cannot say to the hand nor the hand to the foot i a ave no need you for every member is necessary to the Prosperity the body As a whole. And As the joint supports and strengthens the limb and is joined thereto by sinews Etc. So individually god s people Are United to each other in the Bonds Grace and truth and love. It must be conceded that Church federation confederacy in Many respects quite a different thing from the Church s oneness illustrated by our lord s parable the Vine and the apostle s illustration the human body. Nevertheless since a federation is proposed As the nearest possible approach to the spiritual enjoined Union it is proper that we and All christians everywhere should enquire carefully the pm and the gain implied in the federation movement. As the program shows this series meetings will consider impartially the Cost federation to the creeds the most prominent denominations. First in the list today we consider the sacrifices congregationalism. Presbyterianism and methodism. 1 As to Church government vei a slight concessions will be required any the federating denominations. Denominational liberties As respects forms worship and methods government and discipline Are to be permitted very Loose rein. The federation proposes chiefly the regulation Home and foreign Mission work and a general watch care Over the interests the Federated systems along the lines political influence. The expectation is that the political Power the federation will have considerable to do with moulding legislation favourable to the federation and later unfavourable to the smaller denominations not associated in the federation. 2> it is along doctrinal lines that the sacrificing in the interest federation a will be chiefly demanded. Doctrinally congregational lists and presbyterians Are one hence we May consider their sacrifices doctrine in the interests federation As the same. They both accept the Westminster confession Faith with its calve Nostic foundation that god before the foundation the world foreordained whatsoever comes to pass that he predestinated an elect saintly few to heavenly glory and equally foreordained that the remainder thousands millions non elect should be maintained in eternal life to All eternity in order that they might suffer excruciating pains both mental and physical never ending As a part the supposed penalty the Quot original sin Quot committed by our first parents in Cost Church federation to congregation uses presbyterians methodists Coo. Evidently there will be few people in these highly intelligent Christian bodies ready to insist As our forefathers did. That this element Faith is essential to salvation. Few us would agree with brother John Calvin the great architect this Creed that fellow christians rejecting this doctrine should be burned at the stake As brother Calvin decided in respect to brother Servetus. No thank god we have outgrown some the narrowness which so terribly fettered some our Brethren during the dark Ages. Few any longer believe that there Are infants in Bell not a Span because Nuu elect. Even where the doctrine election is still blindly held few have the temerity to state their belief that any innocent infant was predestinated to everlasting torture. But brother Calvin s Contention a the Westminster confession is that there Are no innocent infants that the condemnation original sin was to eternal tort e and that Adanis children Quot born in sin and Shapen in were therefore not innocent but guilty born under the sentence eternal torment and Sal Vable from it Only through membership in the Church Christ indeed we May say that this theory was still older than Calvin for did not st. Augustine first declare the danger infants to eternal torture and the necessity their being brought into the Church Christ by baptism in order to escape eternal torture and is not the Force this teaching still Manifest amongst both protestants and catholics. Is evidenced by their fear to have an infant die unbaptized a so that some in extreme cases even practice Quot baptism in Umerov Quot doctrinally methodism is indirectly opposed to calvinism in every sense the word. Possibly methodists will have less to concede than calvinists. Because although in Wesley s Day the doctrine free Trace was combated every hand. It is now tho tacit Faith the vast majority Christendom. The doctrine that Jod had premeditated and irrevocably foreordained the eternal torture our race except a handful the elect was too horrible a one to stand. So the methodist doctrine divine love for All and free Grace respects salvation Lias appealed More and More to the growing intelligence Mankind. Nevertheless we cannot do otherwise than concede that it will matter Little to the thousands which All Quot orthodox Quot creeds consign to eternal torture whether they shall suffer eternal agonies As a result divine Loveless Ness in for ordaining their sufferings to divine inability to cutwork for their Benefit the supposed advantages free Grace arranged for them by divine love. C the More Etc Cellenti Way. Quot Quot Quot our suggestion is that now in the lapping time this gospel age with the oncoming millennial age. As the arc electric Light casts the Candle the past into tie Shadow so the clearer Light now shining from the pages god s word casts into the Shadow All the doctrines the Quot dark Ages Quot relieving us the horrible Nightmare which once be clouded our hearts and lives and mad6 us fearful our creator As an All powerful but merciless Sovereign. In this blessed Light now shining from god s Book have we not a basis for Christian Union let us see if we can find in god s word that the doctrine election and the doctrine free Grace Are both True both biblical but that one belongs to the Church in this gospel age and the other to Mankind in general in the coming millennial age. Will not this solve our problem and give us doctrinal Union instead a Mere federation based upon the ignoring doctrine Aye can All assent to this therefore let us examine the facts. The Bible assuredly declares a divine election according to a divine purpose foreordained but not such an election As brother Calvin outlined. God foreordained the selection a Church Predestin ting the number who would constitute its membership and the character each one who would be acceptable As a member. He foreordained tests the worthiness these members and the glorious Reward that should be theirs and a great work which they shall be privileged to do for Mankind limited by now fully during the millennium. Accustomed to the election fellow citizens to the presidency to Congress Etc., where they will have the Opportunity for Blessing the non elect we should have carried this same thought to the divine election the Church. We should have discerned that the elect Church the Quot seed Abraham Quot galatians iii 29is specially intended to be the Channel divine Blessing to Quot All the families the Earth Quot genesis xxv lil 14. How strange that we overdo oiled this and tho Assurance that with the completion the Church Messiah would exalt her in the Quot first resurrection Quot to be his Bride and joint help in Bis millennial kingdom to be established for the Blessig All Mankind How strange that we did not notice that Ever text scripture used by our methodist Brethren to their doctrine free inu e Lieut pigs to the i millennial King Chi Asfe in instance. The Bible after tel iii us the completion the Chur it i now espoused to the lord and after iter marriage Union with him at his second coming As a a the Bride the Lamb s tells that then Quot the spirit Ahi the Bride shall say. Come and whosoever will May Cote and take the water life freely Quot revelation xxii. 17a. Yes. We failed disastrously to keep the apostle s command. Quot study to show thyself approved unto god. A Workman that need eth not to be ashamed rightly dividing the word truth Quot ii Timothy ii 15. We failed to thus Divide the truth and to note the portion applicable now and the other portion applicable during the millennium. Thank god. We Are not yet too old to learn. We surely have been thoroughly sickened by our mistaken interpretations the past which made nonsense both the doctrines election and free Grace and worse than this defamed and vilified our heavenly father Quot to lug god All in the Light now shining we May see that the terms the divine election tie Church Are in every sense the word without partiality except As regards character and faithfulness. Those now called with the heavenly calling to be Quot the elect Quot Are indeed invited to eternal life the spirit plane to be like unto the Angels but More exalted while the opportunities to be granted to the world in general during the millennium will be inferior earthly restitution Rye yet grand acts i. 19-21. But this difference Reward is counterbalanced by the severer trials and testings those now called to be the elect. They must walk by Faith and not by sight. They must take up their Cross and follow the Lamb Whithersoever he goeth. They must count their lives not dear unto them but willingly sacrifice their earthly interests that they May be participators with their redeemer in glory. Honor and immortality and in his great work the millennium the Blessing the world Mankind with a mental moral social and physical uplift. Cannot we. All congregational lists. Presbyterians and methodists and All others god s people unite As one Hody upon this scriptural hypothesis Are we not satisfied with the terms this election that they Are sufi Clenty stringent to exclude All except the saintly Hearken to the apostle s declaration. Which we once so grievously misunderstood he says god s election Quot whom he did Foreknew he also did predestinated to be conformed to the image his in other words when our heavenly father Foreknew and predetermined to gather an elect Church As the Bride Christ he also predetermined that none could be members it unless they attained through Faith and obedience in the school Christ Jesus heart likeness to Quot him hence As nearly As possible an obedience the flesh to his Law. Surely no one will claim that an but a Little flock has Ever attained to this honoured condition hence our former ideas respecting the non elect would consign the majority our families neighbors friends and All the Heathen to endless Voe. But now How differently we see in god s word that the elect class is selected in Advance that in god s due time with the redeemer it May bless every Crea Ture with fullest Opportunity to return to human perfection in a regained restored during the millennium. This proposition the scriptures includes those who have Goue Down to the prison House death into sheol into hades both the evil and the Good. All shall then know from the least to the greatest that Quot Jesus Christ by the Grace god tasted death for every they shall know that the redeeming Bloo was not shed in vain but will secure to each member Adam s race not eternal life but an Opportunity to attain eternal life either the heavenly plane during this age the earthly plane during the millennium. 1 address you. Dear friends not from a sectarian standpoint but Frouz a federation standpoint Yea. Inure than this from the standpoint those who desire to be doctrinally. As Well As outwardly in agreement with the lord and with each other. Have we not. In this Beautiful election the Bible the basis for the grandest All Hopes the highest All ambitions to be Quot heirs god and joint heirs with Jesus Christ our lord Quot can we want More than this for ourselves and does it not enhance the glory this prize to have the Prospect conquering the world for Jesus and for the father during the millennium in the Only Way in which it Ever can be conquered god s Way is it net for this kingdom that our redeem taught us to Pray Quot thy kingdom come thy will be done Earth As it is done in heaven Quot is it not for this kingdom that he taught us to wait saying. Quot fear not. Little flock it is your father s Good pleasure to give you the kingdom Quot Luke Xii Quot 32 ? is it not for this kingdom that the world Waits Quot unto him every knee shall Bow and every Tongue confess Quot the knowledge Hie lord shall fill the whole Quot All shall know him from the least to the Quot and it shall come to pass that every Sony which will not hear that Prophet shall to destroyed from amongst the people Quot vets iii 23i. Liall we. Then Stop merely with a outward federation confederacy / shall we not rather unite our hearts and Heads and hands along the lines the divine Promise Given to us Quot in thee and in thy seed shall the families the Earth be blessed Quot gala tonns ill 29.
