A reconi whicn. might well cause even the people of the twentieth century to reflect and ponder well � before'acting hurriedly or speaking harshly of-any who have nvmed the name of tho Redeemer in tinoerlty end truth: 'Mr. Young, lu pwt, Mtd r In these days of knowledge and advancement, one would almost tbiul: the lubjeot of religious intolerance as a ben to man's progress would liave SK) piece In the fonvard march of the enllRhtenment and religious liberty of our day". Neverthelesfi", In the light of the events which have transpired in our midst during the . past few weeks In tho banning of "The Finished Mystery," which contains the interpretation of the Biblical books of Bwklel end Revelation, we see, as It were, a reflection of that .which many had hoped belonged to a darker past, when Bibles were banned and burned publicly, and when religious intolcr-ence stalked through the land. Jeeue jCendemned a Traitor A� we review the Gospel Age, ho^--erer, we behold an almost uninterrupted battlfe between 'entrenched ecclealastlrtsm on the one hand and the reformers, the leaders ot religious advancement and emancipation, on the other hand. The struggle between truth and error, light and darkness, commenced when the lowly Nazarohe, standing free irom the creeds and religions leaders of His day, taught the people the Word of God in Its purity. Without money and without price. Tho scribes and Pharisees, the D.D.'a of that day, were chagrined and embittered because He taught the people and rebuked their creeds and hypocrisy In no uncertain manner. "Woe unto you ecrlbes and Pharisee*. 'You have taken away, the key of knowledge (the understanding ot My Father's Word from tho common people). You neither enter in yourselves, and those that were entering In ye hindered (slandered and misrepresented). You have made tLe Word ot God of non-effect by your traditions (creeds)." The result was Ignoring every principle of justice and equity. They condemned the Lamb ot God to be crucified. They sold Hi,i teachinfe were seditious. They stirred up the Romen governor, Intovmlng him that Jeeua and His teachings were d:s-loyal and libellous,.�nd irhen given the opportunity of their choice ot the freedom ot Jesus or Barabbas the murderer, they,preferred Barabba.i in preference to the Son of God. The Battle for Rellaloue Liberty/ Following the death dt the Redeemer we observe a continual battle between the lowly. Inoffensive followers of Jesus and the high ecclesleitlcs, which high ecclesiastics have invariably exercised their baneful influence through the civil authorities, While they themaelves have posed as' the champions of ail that is holy and honorable. I Thus during the first century the church was small 'and insignificant, retaining'a large measure of her Master's spirit, The second century found tl)e church increased In numbers, and the elders or bishops claiming they were,apostolic bishops, successors to the''Apostles- (the same as certain blehops claim today).

These books of the Bible are now due to be understood as we are living In the close ot the age. Habukuk 2.2, and Daniel yl2:1-4.
