the ability of the comnany he has got

SAYS CIVILIZATION IS THREATENED
Lesson Drawn From Paul's Dealinga
With Fall In Sermon on "Why
More Men Are Not
Tho flevy 8. A. Hayworth, pastor of
the First Baptist church, preached the
first of a series of sermons planned
by him, Sunday evening on "W'7
More Men are not Christiana.' Hi
text waa: "And aa Paul reasoned with
Keilx concerning temperance rlght
eousneas and judgment to cone, He
answered saying, 'Oo thy way for
this time;, when I have a more con
venient seaaon 1 will call for thee."
Acts 24-25. The mjniater ea'd:
Paul in dealing with this governor,
did not hand out toothsome aweet
maUr but dealt heavy blows of truth
at the conscience of the proud cul
prit Paul knew how to arouse toe
conaclenco of strong men, and in ad
dressing them, sought . to arouse
thought, challenged to action - and
called them to such duties as requir
ed the O'ost heroic courage and manly
strength. The world's redeemer waa
a man of Imperial strength and loved
men. Hi riweli with men anrt mIImI
I hla firt disciples from among the
males aud committed to men the task
of evangelising the world. ' Hence
Paul the ambassador of Chiial. waa
not afraid to stand before governors
, Felix Had Three Wives.
Felix was thrice --married and when
! he sent for Paul had three living
wives on the earth. Drusilla was the
wife of a' king before she forsook her
constancy to marry Felix. Paul was
then addressing an audience of two
an adulterer and an adulteress. He
got his sermon from his audience and
reasoned with tbem concerning aelf
ontrol. righteousness and Judgment
to come. He saw In Felix the possi
bility of a good man and coveted him
for higher things. Paul did not look
down on him but aaw him In the light
of Calvary. The j worth of the most
wicked man can only bo appreciated
when seen from the view-point of hit
potential being. A prism when seen
between the eye and the earth Is
nothing but a piece of glass, but when
seen between the eye and the aun. It
possesses all the beautiful colors and
glory or the rainbow. So this adul
terous man and woman of high posi
tion in the . financial and political
world, were regarded by Paul as ob
jects ,of love.
There are certain reasons which
hinder men from being Christiana.
There are today In the United States
three million more female members
of the church than male members.
Why Is this a fact? The aame things
which hindered Felix from accepting
the gospel message, are perhaps simi
larly hindering many American men
from being Christians'. '
Paul showed Felix, that Christianity,
unlike the heathen religions of his
time, does not sanction the practice
of adultery under the guise of legal
marriage. To have accepted Christ
aa Lord Involved the question of hia
social habits. By reason of the whim
sical reasons which the Romans gave
for putting away- their wivea, Paul
pointed out that Felix would have
been compelled to renounce Lis pres
ent affinity and go back to his first
love. The heathen religions sanction
ed adultery and many of them were
Identified in their forms with Ita prac
tice. What were the vestal virgins
but tools ror-the use of -degenerate
priests? Felix a heaftien, did not look
upon the marriage relation as being
an Inviolable obligation, but regarded
the matter of divorcing ode woman
In order to take another, aa a mere
form and felt little . or no pangs of
conscience about it. This low stan
dard or social ethics stood as a bar
rier to his accepting Jesus Christ for
the acceptance of Qhrlst necessitated
the practice of Ideal chlvalric devo
tion to a wife.
America la Threatened.
This same low standard Is obtaining
to a large degree in American civilisa
tion and Is blighting the moral and
religious hopes or multitudes. When
the changing of a wife for another
appears to be no more serious than
the bartering In horses by common
traders, It Is high time for the Chris
tian pulpit to proclaim with emphasis
the sanctltv of the marriage bond
and to teach the public that marriage
Involves the physical Identification of
male and female and that the moral
obligations of such a union can no
more be annulled by a court of law,
than the obligations of a Bon toward
an earthly parent can be annulled.
These obllgatlona, are of course, more
solemn when children are born Into
The every day spectacle, which oc
curs In our courta, of husbands and
wives parting by legal decrees of di
vorcement and In that way aeeking to
escape the moral obllgatlona of mu
tually rearing thoir children and pro
viding, is a disgrace to our Ameri
can civlllratlon and If not checked by
a revival of Christian teaching, will
result In the decay or thla present
civilisation. Felix doubtless allowed
his adulterous relations with Drusilla,
to deter him In the matter or accept
ing the lordship of Jesus Christ. He i
did not propose to carry his repen
tance Into the realpi or his social con
duct. So there are many men today,
who having violated every law of
Christian morality In their einfirl con
duct, refuse to give their moral alleg-
lance to Jesus Christ, ror sucn alleg
iance would require living a social
standard baaed on the revelation made
In the words of Christ, tbat wheu
two souls are united In marriage,
these two shall be one flesh and that
