Wesley and Calvin Sight In Borne Par
Pastor Russell, remarking that the
beautiful grounds and auditorium are
the property of the Methodist brethren,
took for his text John Wesley's favor
ite slogan of free grace "And . toe
Spirit and the Bride say, Come; and
let . htm that heareth say, Come; and
let him that is athlrst come; and' who
soever will, let him take the water of
life freely" (Revelation xxil. 17). Pas
tor Russell remarked that Protestantism
In general was Calvlnlstlc when Brother
Wesley began his preaching, "Qod is
Love;" "Whosoever will may come and
take of the water of life, freely" there
Is no predestination to eternal torture!
The result of Brother Wesley's teach
lngs Is seen, not merely in the num
bers professing Methodism and Free.
Orace; his influence has overswept all
the Calvlnlstlc denominations. Their
confessions of faith still are Calvinls
tic, but In their hearts and on their
tongues they have Brother Wesley's
message, "God is Love; He never pre
destinated anybody to eternal torture."
Pastor Russell declares that Brothers
Calvin and Wesley were both right In
certain particulars and both wrong In
other particulars. Brother Calvin was
quite right In declaring an election ac
cording to grace, and In speaking of the
church as God's elect, and In exhorting
the church to make their "calling and
election sure." He was right In these
matters because he was In accord with
the Bible. But he was wrong in declar
ing that God had predestinatedtbe non
elect to an eternity of suffering be
cause there Is no Scripture to this ef
fect. The only Scripture respecting di
vine predestination relates to th
church the elect. It tells us that God
foreknew the church as a specially
elect class and predestinated that no
one could be a member of this class ex
cept such as would become copies of his
son, the Redeemer. To this, the Scrip
tural predestination, none can object. It
Is the unscrlptural deductions which
have caused us difficulty.
In God's "Sue Time."
- St Paul gives the key to the situation
In I Timothy 11:4-6. He declares that it
Is God's will that all men shall be saved
(recovered from the condemnation which
came upon all through Adam) and also
come to an accurate knowledge of the
truth. He declares that It Is for this
reason that Jesus became the medfator
between God and the world of mankind
and that the testimony of this great
fact will reach all men "In due time.".
Now Is the church's "due tlmo" to see
and to hear, but not the world's. Satan
blinds and deafens the world of mankind
now so that only a favored few, com
paratively, hear and see God's proffered
grace In Christ. Great Is the blessing
ef those who see and hear, for they
may make their calling and election sure
and become spirit beings In the resur
rection "change," Joint heirs with their
Redeemer In his Messianic kingdom,
which shortly will bless the world. Then
will come the time for the blessing of
th'e non-elect. Satan will be bound for
the thousand years of Messlah'B king
dom. Darkness, Ignorance and super
stition shall flee before the sun of
righteousness In that great thousand
year day. Those then refusing to bow
to confess under this full and gracious
opportunity will die the second death,
from which there will be no resurrec
tion, no restitution. They will perish as
brute beasts be utter'y destroyed from
amongst the people (II Peter 11:12; Acts
Brother Wesley's Good Text.
Brother Wesley's favorite text pro
claiming free grace Is a precious one
Still, though It does not belong to the
present age but to the coming one. The
proof of this, Pastor Russell declares,
Is evidenced by the context. The
church is not yet complete. She is not
yet the bride, the lamb's wife, but
merely his espoused virgin. The mar
riage, which will make her the bride,
will be her union with her lord and
redeemer at his second advent by the
"change" of the first resurrection, when
she shall enter Into the joys of her
Lord, and share his glory, honor and
immortality and kingdom.
Hence there Is no bride st the pres
ent time to say, "come." The bride will
say, "come," to the non-elect world of
mankind during the thousands years of
Messiah's kingdom. -Adam and every
member of his race will be privileged
to know then their "duo time," of God's
love and mercy in Christ. All will then
have an opportunity to gain everlasting
life not heavenly or spirit life like
the angels and . the church, but human
life such as Adam enjoyed and lost.
Adam never was an angel, and never
fell from heaven. He fell , from the
perfection of human nature end his race
with him; only the church class of this
age will experience a change of nature,
from earthly to heavenly, to be accom
plished in their resurrection "change"
(I, Corinthians xv. 60), The salvation of
thi non-elect will, therefore, be to ever
lasting life In human perfection In a
world wide Eden Paradtse restored.
As the church cannot be the bride un
til after the marriage, likewise there is
no "river of water of life" now to which
to invite the world.

South Bend. Wash., Sept. 4. During
the last several ' weeks fully 400 men
have been fighting forest fires along
the South Bend branch of the Northern
Pacific railway almost constantly, but
an Immense amount of damage has been
done. On Mill creek a large amount of
timber was destroyed, and loggers In
one or two Instances were compelled to
bury their engines to save them from
the flames which devastated their
camps. Two of the Qulnault Lumber
company's camps in the lower Wlllapa
valley were completely destroyed along

London, Sept. 4. David Lloyd-George
is the focus of the new attack unionists
are making . uppn the Asquith radical
government in their desperate endeavor
to head off home rule.
During the autumn session of parlia
ment one of the first measures to be
taken up will be the chancellor's bill
for state insurance to victims of dls-
ablement and sickness, the unionists
are bent upon discrediting the state
ment and Its author. In the hope that
Mr. Asquith will have it withdrawn.
If these tactics should succeed, a
deadly blow would be dealt to the repu
tation of Lloyd-George as a 'construc
tive statesman and the radical coali
tion might be smashed on a social issue.
Unionists haye displayed great inge
nuity In choosing the battlefield, be
cause the insurance bill has aroused
the enmity of the trades unions, physi
cians and .. shippers and some labor M.
P.'b, who denounce It as "A half baked
importation from Germany, wholly un
suited to a population like ours."
