PULPIT WARNED AGAINST
THE YELLOW PERIL OF

Lecturer National Fanners' I’nlon.

The difficulty of keeping the preach

when he drove the priests from the

Our pilgrim fathers met it when,

holocaust threatening to reduce the
population to ashes and which was ex

The greatest peril to the church to
day Is politics. The temptation of the
ministry to throw down the cross of
ChrlBt and pick up the club of the
policeman; to substitute the penalties
of the law for the power of the altar
and to legislate religion Into human
hearts, never was greater.
The world never needed a religious
ministry more nor political preachers
less than It does today. We need min
Islers to leach us how to live; we

The religious preacher is the moat

piwacher the sorriest master the world

Civilization has many times been
compelled to drive Incorrigible preach

the bayonet. Many of the pages of
history are wet with blood shed at the
hands of political preachers who wrote
laws on the statute book« that com

human beings with the hatchet and

I think It as* immoral
for a preacher to seek to lobby while

A preacher can no more preach a
political sermon without converting his

he could sell Intoxicating liquor from
the altar without converting the
church into a bar-room. He can no
more purify politics by playing the
game than he can sanctify gambling
by running a lottery.
