F religion items to a Friend on Tot doctrines and doties of the Bible. Ter personality of god. A own will begat he 18-dear Friend a in former letters of Dud Liis Obar Acter and it May also be remembered that -1 a Posen of the personality of god. It it be required that the preacher should and explain every word or form Tex a be May use. Preaching implies intelligence in the hearers and it ear words and phrases which they do Ade stand they should seek inform but in these familiar letters i Mayad explain or explain As i proceed let me say that the passage above from James i 18, teaches As i re in my last the personality of god / bes to him a will and acts the result but who Ever heard of an ii per a thing or a principle having a will jog things As the result of its volition ? Lis is said of god of his own will a us. Here is personality. God is do an essence a conscious existence intelligent being lie has intellect 111. He has a will of his own his kill a James i 18 hence having Fence and will he is a personal being lot the world itself nor merely the the world nor yet the Only substance Jyh nature and mind Are the Pheno but he is a personal Independent tent being who made and who the world working All things after Ansel of his own . I 3�? i his god would not exist but the god of the Bible our god is a god who exists m and of himself he existed before the worlds and he would exist if no worlds. He Nade the worlds he governs the worlds he made us and he will bring us into judgment he will Reward his people and he will punish his enemies for he is the moral governor As Well As the creator of the universe the author and sus Tamer of the moral Law As Well As of natural Laws the god of Grace and redemption As Well As of nature and Providence. A. This May suffice by Way of explanation. You. Will now understand what i mean by the personality of god. I mean that god has a real existence of his own or As Paul says he that Someth to god must believe that he is that he actually and really exists. A Heb i. 6 you exist and of this you Are conscious and you. Have an. Intellect an will of your own. Now As y.ou., conscious personal exist Noe derived from god so he has a. Conscious personal existence m himself an intellect and. Will of his own he is before All things and by him All things consist a colossians i 15, 17. And the design top the a expression is to guard a a you against the spirit of infidelity which is . World and even in the Church As satan himself is, an Angel of Light even so its ministers transformed As the ministers of .righteousness.�?2. Cor. In 13�?15.when we speak of ourselves we say we and us. When , we address god As the hearer and answerer of prayer saying will not thou hear us. We Are conscious of cur own personality and we address god As a personal being. A the thou of our prayers rises in solemn reality against our own most hidden theism a god is 1 the great i am a a a a a a. Not very Long ago the British Alliance published apprise essay on a infidelity its a causes aspects and agencies this has been republished in this country by1 the Carters and it it would be Well forever family to have a copy of it there Are also a later works on subject by different authors and there is another of older Date Mccosh on the divine government physical and moral. Some of these All. Should read. And m addition to All these we greatly need a Plain and popular treatise on the subject adapted to alb classes and so cheap As to secure, circulation for. The two great opponents of the Church and of vital piety for years to Copie be mormonism a and infidelity and a third the joint product of these two a the spirit of licentiousness spurning the restraints of All Law human and this very spirit is now fostered and inflamed by a corrupt press whose issues Fiad their Way into every portion of our land.

Arid cheering reports of the gracious outpourings of the spirit of god upon our churches for the past Winter Are again brought up in an interesting manner for review. The reports Are not of any. Great or unusual excitements of much stir or noise but of gentle refreshing outpourings of Grace of churches led Imp creep to Faly almost. To More Earnest prayer More diligent use of the Means of Grace of sin ners without being aware of any unusual efforts in their behalf brought to the foot of the Cross and constrained to live All to the Saviour made willing in the Day of his Power v the presbyteries of a Chicago Rook River Schuyler Dubuque Cedar Des Moines Iowa Mil Waukee Winnebago Sangamon Kas Kasota and Peoria have All had reason to the ankle lord of his Harvest Quot in Blessing them by a granting fences upon some of their churches would that the lord had thus blessed us All but alas we wonder not that he withholds the copious rain. We Are so cold so worldly so Given to faithlessness that were he not god,."bat Man a the a heavens it would it be it brass above us and not even the Dews descend. Of for More Faith. A. Several features of whole Church appear in contemplating the facts elicited at meetings of our Western presbyteries one is that a a Westward the Star of. Empire take sits Way not Only but that Christian Enterprise is directing her a attention to the Western Field. Youngmen just from the summary desirous of finding Fields of labor go not North nor East nor South hut their inquiries Are of the West thither their footsteps tend Rand we Are often Grant Liberty to such to labor within our. Bounds. This we. Like to see. Let the Young and enc go tic cast m their lot with us grow up with the Quot West know1 her wants and by their laborjigive4one to her society and a right direction to her re i sources. Let them who Are i willing to endure hardships As Good soldiers of the Cross until every Village and every i neighbourhood has the pure gospel.1 so much of error at present abounds Subtle i that this in isl Vusten some f infidelity of the present Day denies Here is any personal god any god Fly and independently existing a any Art from sin and Independent of the of creation. It teaches that god is pm do or the soul of the world or the ibs Tanee of which All things Are but Delta. In some form it teaches that thing is god and that god is every i hence it Csibi god the great All a Sod god is ail. It is pantheism and i but a species of atheism. It May if god As the soul of the universe a trading All matter and All space Rand i talk very eloquently and very piously Gad and yet it does not believe at All i being whom we Call god it Cloes Jlove in any revelation from god As because it holds All men Are inspired to is in All men and in All things and re is no god apart from the visible literally no god no god who Rea personal . Xiv. D Jet to hear the pantheist talk you think him wondrous Wise and won ious too tor he will Tell you god is where and he secs god in every thing Ere is something very grand in some conceptions and very poetic and inti rating and hence the wide spread Nee of this species of infidelity and the danger too that Many very Many e led away by it especially when we that it is even now in some of out r is and our schools in our books Andin works of science and m novels a tums trash in numerous a Socia a clubs in la Cums in libraries m 6�?-very Many of the popular lecturers tainted with it and even in the and the Devil has his Eold Reurs Ting its productions All Over the Ilance i have Felt it important to you against it add to guard you t a by keeping prominently before his great truth. There is a personal the living and True god if it is a. Thing to believe there is a god it is a r thing and a dangerous and fatal a to believe there is no god and As 1 practical purposes we May As Well be there is of god As to believe that has not or is not a personal existence god of the. Pantheist is no god for if colds new blotted Bep apere let jul a Effort and to prayer but All a a this in a a digression perhaps unnecessary but i Hope Dot altogether. Useless. In my next i will try to return from my wanderings and Hope Quot May get Back by the time i get through1 a yours truly for the presbyterian Banner and advocate. Revival at it. Carmel Indiana. Or Mckinney a dear sir a to encourage the expectation of. Gods people to stimulate to a prayer and Effort As Well express our devout thankfulness. To the head of the Church to record what god has recently done for us at it. Carmel during a ,.which was to be my last service in connexion with them As a minister. The few accessions to the Church during the last two years with some other indications of declension in religious interest led to an engagement some two months ago to leave for Dunlapsville. A a but latterly from the increase in attendance and seriousness of the congregation together with greater earnestness at our prayer meetings and some cases of personal concern on the subject of religion we a Felt encouraged to a expect the a presence of the lord with us at our meeting. The preaching of brother Golliday a who assisted a was accompanied with special Power on saturday there was it much seriousness but on insinuating error that we much need labourers Well skilled in the preaching of Christ. Another circumstance he cited at out late meetings of presbyteries is that our West a Era churches Are exacting in their demands upon their pastors they Are oftentimes ,be what if Theys were would be the., rum of the. Church and Are often called upon to do what if they did would be the ruin of them. Quot ministers being unable or uni Iling to he or do what is thus expected of them find it necessary to leave their Fields of labor and presbyteries Are often called upon to dissolve Between pastors and people m Many instances perhaps but lately formed. These Are often the most unpleasant cases coming the Evi Dies partly in the fact that our Sabbath during Sermon and com Munmon services the presence of the spirit seemed Felt by All. The work increased in Power As the services continued until suspended for the sitting of presbytery in our Felt that the Church now without a pastor and no preaching for next Sabbath could not be left. A a i preached on the following Sabbath when the interest seemed still As a great which led us to continue till wednesday. A fifty four were received into the Church on examination most of whom received the ordinance of baptism. A Large proportion were Young god has exceeded our highest expectations and both the Church and myself Felt that with the consent of Dnn laps vice Church which has been obtained i ought to remain most of my furniture was already removed to Dunlapsville whilst a we Iby the interest1 in the Church. At the close when starting with my family for i Dunlapsville i had three or four of my ribs broken by a. Kick from a horse which will confine me for several weeks. Whether this was a Call of god to remain at Carmel Ornot. The Issue is an arrangement for my remaining Here if spared this week my furniture is to be brought Back. I write. Fromm chair which i have occupied these. Five Days Day and night with considerable pain yet with the Prospect of a speedy recovery. It is said of the Good Man a a he keep eth All Bis hones no one of them is broken a yet i can say in View of the past a a he has made me to hear Joy and gladness that the Bones which he hath broken May James Gilchrist. When the veil of death Lias been drawn Between us and the objects of our regard Bow Quick sigh Ted do we become to their merits and How bitterly do we than remember words or looks of unkindness which May have escaped us in our Intercourse with them Bow careful should such thoughts Render us in the fulfilment of those offices of affection Bioh it May yet he in our Power to a perform for who can Tell. How soon the moment May arrive when repentance can no 1ie lpjlowed�?T,by1 reparation. 1 churches Are compelled to depend in part 1 for Aid to support their pastors upon the ungodly Community hence a Man must be found who will be popular a enough to draw if not such to the House of god and to i Christ the required Cash from their purses. Partly in that every place. Whether Small is regarded m the West As a Peculiar 1 place and must have p Peculiar Man and a partly m the fact Quot that Church members themselves Are not fully awake to the real wants of the cd Neh oftentimes at feared Labouring though with no such intention to secure a present Good at the sacrifice of All future Quot Benefit. I do not a speak of these things for the purpose of censuring any one but that the evil May be brought before the mind and -temedies.sought,.and, if possible. Applied. The Tuno is coming when the Church Able to sustain her pastors unaided a by the1 world will be More Independent and can retain a the faithful godly servant of Christ without the fear of subjecting him to a want of temporal support because he May not be just As popular As the clamorous and unfeeling world May desire. A ,. Another fact exhibited in the reports of our presbyteries is a that Young men born and reared among us Are coming Forward and devoting themselves to. The. Ministry of reconciliation. Many Nantes will be reported to the Assembly Froni presbyteries connected with the a synods of Wisconsin Iowa Chicago and Illinois this is an Meneou Ramg indication. A we Are by it saying to our Brethren in other parts of the Church that we Are endeavouring to do our whole duty by the field0of labor which Godi has entrusted to our care not Only cultivating it to the utmost of our ability but Labouring to raise up As gods instruments those who shall fill our places when we Are called upon to Lay our Armor these youths Are now scattered Over a our wide exp tended Field but it is believed are1 actuated with one spirit and Are one in heart. May the lord guide it them it and the Fresby tanks udder whose charge they Are a that the truth As it is in Jesus maybe promoted through their age Noyi to that place a a the worlds regards which it is the design it of god it shall takeout Little actual Progress has been made Fay us in Seminary matters of late. Two companies holding land in the neighbourhood of Chicago at Hyde Park have each made a donation of land amounting Quot in Aliso More than thirty acres very valuable prospectively qualifying the Grant with the condition that improvements to the amount of i from ?50 to �loo000 be put Pori it in the next five years it is thought however that this restriction can be modified in such a manner that m Case the exact amount f required to not. Expended the interests of a the Seminary will not suffer. A pledge of 530,000 Cash for the done professorship. Has also been secured. At a late meeting of a committee of the Board of directors a plan for a building was presented oomph str ing with the enlarged and constantly expanding ideas of our Western men who look through telescopic eyes but was re committed to the architect by the moire sober committee some of whom being we.
