It becomes a fetich to those who believe in it. It wok in his
search for a way out of the darkness that Cardinal Newman
was inspired to write his immortal hymn, "Lead Kindly IamiI."
He found it within his own soul. Savon a ml a cast Ingot ry and
intolerance aside and listened to the voice within! Ah, these
were men. great men, within whoso souls burned. the flame of
love for all mankind. Intellectuals they were, but humble as
children in the presence of eternal Truth. Thomas Huxley
died with the words on his lips: "1 don't kifow." Lord Tenny
son died singing the beautiful words of "Crossing the Har."
The one was a doubting materialist, the other a spiritual believ
er! The sectarian may have glimpses of the better life, but he
tan never experience it in its fullness. For bigotry and sec
tarianism are synonymous terms. They have done untold evil
in the world. They have severed the golden cords of the home
tie. They have made shipwreck of the most stcred human re
lations, fliey. have left a world in unreirenerattness. empha
sizing the shadow rather than the substance, and by an
unyielding attitude have prejudiced against their organizations
those who would otherwise have joined them. A religion that does
not-change the lite but on the contrary embitters it is doomed
to failure. Such a religion does not commend itself to a world
which has wearied of I'hari.seeism and craves something more
substantial than mere externals. which, however pleasing to t!je
eye and ear, lead only to intolerance and biirotry.

There is a strange and bitter prejudice on the part of certain
defenders of the Christian faith against those who disagree
with them. No conception but .theirs is. admissible. No other
- pathway leads to the domicile of the p'dgrim, who must turn
neither to the right nor to the left if he would reach the portals
of his Kpiritual home. Century-old dogmas are often held forth
m infallible. To believe Just a little less or just a little more;
to question as much as the dotting of an i or the crossing of!
n't; to shade even indistinctly or interrogate ever so rauuiy;
to suggest a more logical interpretation without modifying in
the faintest degree the professed conception to do any of these
things is to at once fall into fatal and terrible disfavor.
Nothing has more stimulated the growth of agnosticism than
this narrow sectarian bigotry. Its! exactions and proscriptions
jiave driven the world into darkness and despair. They have
obscured the perspective, and as a result men are groping hither
imd thither for some talismanic magic which leads to truth
and freedom rather than to the conception which enslaves. In
a word, the modern sect, with its bitter interdictions and its
cruel anathema against those in the darkness of indecision, has
been cast out by millions who prefer communication with the
inner monitor which opens up vistas of beauty and sweetness
without enthralling the seefcer or eniDiucrmg mm apmn ma

extremes than, the severities of sectarianism. The old com
mander whose strategies were learned in an older school is no
longer wanted. Strategies have changed, newer methods and
more certain ones have evolved, and today the general of fifty
years ago who has fallen to the rear is pitifully ignorant of
-the science he once mastered; We do not contend that the
analogy is perfect, but that the eld theology, of intolerance has
fallen by the wayside while the newer freer and more vital
truths have passed it by. No longer, for example, is the literal
interpretation of the Hible commonly accepted. Nor the story
of the creation, so picturesquely described in Genesis. And. the;
sin of Adam, inherited by countless generations since the crea
tion, is no more the literal thing theology has called it. but a
beautiful story to be symbolically interpreted. Surely the sin
of the father is not indefinitely to be -borne by those who follow
him, for; God is a just God and holds the individual alone
responsible for his acts.

belongs to the individual himself.' Within his own soul lives
and' breathes the Great Interpreter, and just as he develops
communication with Him will he sharpen his spiritual vision
and come into the power promised to those who have been
regenerated by the new birth. Kclief in a creed, made by men,
or in a formula, prescribed iby men, never naved a soul and
never can because it is not in creeds or formulas that man finds
his God but within his own being. There resides everything
of spiritual value, the reservoirs of power, the potentialities
awaiting development. There Tennysoij found the secret of
Iruc religion; there Thomas A'Kempis found it ; there such great
