"Every person who is striving to live a religious life should,
; of course, be loyal to hit religious convictions - If he be a
Catholic, let him be loyal in life, conduct and deed to the
teachings of that churchy To be loyal to it merely in -words
or. outwardly amounts to nothing; this only makes one a hyp
. ocrite. And the same if he be a Presbyterian, a Unitarian or
a member of any other church ; let him be truly loyal to the
, ethical and religious teachings of the church of which he is
; :, a member.' To be loyal to the truth as one usees it is not only
7 a necessary foundation for any religious life whatever, but
of character and real manhood or womanhood.
" " But in order to be loyal to his religious convictions one

more one feels the necessity; of this loyalty to his own con
victions, the more willing, he. should be that his , brother
; should- be loyal to his. This loyalty does not require us to
try to force oar convictions upon our brother nor to fight or
try to destroy him if he doffs jnot accept them. This, so far
' from being an admirable '0, commendable manifestation of
hurriAn, character, is only' an .expression, of inordinate sel
fishness and egotism. These and not loyalty to his convic
, tions, are always at! the- bottom of. the activities of the sec
tarian and the bigot. ::aiM..v'l:;-;! ; - ' r '
Indeed, a ' careful examinatJ6n of the tenets of all Chris
tian denominations will disclose the fact that in their ethical
and "religious teachings they are all essentially much the
i same. 7, It is as to theology, dogmatism, creeds, forms and
ceremonies the trappings of religionthat they differ. It
' is the exaggeration of the importance of these non-essentials
together witlihia selfish insistence upon their acceptance and
observance by others that makes the sectarian. ;" L't"'
' AU, Christian denominations clajm to be founded upon the
life and teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels. If all
, were really sOvfotthded they would all agree as to thetfunda-
rnentals'of ethical and religious' truth and would have' the
spirit of Christ to animate them and the Spirit pfthith to
lead them. There would then indeed be "one Lord, one faith
end one bap'tism7,'.,-r-i;': v--v;-- . " .-
. , Too many Christian sects have come about in this way t
some, theologiam has emphasized, often misinterpreted, the
meaning of-certain passages of the Scripture. ;,Wtk these
as a. basis, by l a' purely intellectual, process, he has reasoned
to certain conclusions, f These ; formally ; set if orth in- dogma

. forthwith-proceeded! to organize as the only true. Christian
faith. No matter, how. entirely: out of harmony with the
, spirit of the .Gospels hi3 articles of faith, he found those
; whom he could induce to accept them as authorized by. the
riptures and as constituting the. only statement of Chris-
tian truth.- 'Animated bv a narrow, selfish. sarfriftiiTmnt.
he and hlsr followers proceeded, to" try t6 supplant all other

ulated the reliorious life and development of the world. Per
haps this sectarian activity ha3 been in the. past the only
religious activity, for which men were prepared. . We Amer
icans believe in religious liberty that religion is more virile
arid takes a firmer hold on men where there is full religious
freedqm. But some of us have yet to learn that this religious
freedom is for our differing brother as well as for ourselves;
that we can be sure of the right to freely worship God ac
ceding tot the dictates of our consciences only-by. seeing
to it that our brother has the same right (The poles are
not farther apart than religious freedom and; fanatical sec
tarianism, which in the last few months ha3 claimed nearly
four hundred human lives as its harvest in one country of
Europe, and has massacred thousands recently in Asia Minor.
There is no more revolting manifestation of human selfish
ness and depravity than fanatical sectarianism, and it is ful
ly as revolting in Christian as in Mohammedan and very
much less justified by the Christian's faith and professions.
With the. broader knowledge and greater enlightenment
which have recently come to the worldi many are ! seeing a
new light." The conviction is taking possession, of many, hon
est minds .that this sectarian spirit has done and is -still do
ing great" injury " to the cause of Christ and is tending to
keep the world m religious darkness and "sin V that unless
Christianity is to consist only Of: a lot 'of comparatively
small and weak warring factions there must be an end of
these hair-splitting divisions and their resulting dissensions
and jealousies. Instead of looking for and emphasizing their
differences, which, have generally come about through" lack
of spiritual development and
inations should be. searching
their points of agreement. Instead of enmities which separ
ate the various Christian denominations there should be
efforts to get together, even to coalesce, so that a solid and
united army may face the common, enemy, sin. This-conviction
has prompted the recent world-wide efforts at church
union. Let us 'hope that thes efforts .may continue :until
Christianity shall meansomething more to the. world than
large numbers of confusing,
sects. ;. : ..,;... ".,.,..' '
, . Surely the life and teachings Jesus are broad enough
and pure and beautiful enough'to make a platform ipon
which all Christians can stand. The Christianity of Jesus
is what all denominations, whaf Lll. the World j needs. Many
are coming, to see that the firsts steP toward? realizing,, to
wards actualizing this Christianity of Jesus 13 to forget
the hair-splitting creed-mongers of "both the past and the
present and try to catch His broad spirit of 'j love, charity,
peace, and humanity. This spirit really present will end all
strife, hatreds and schism and will bring the kmgdorn of God,
which He revealed, to every heart , that attains it :
