The Northeastern Iowa Chris
tian Convention not only proposes
to send out evangelists to preach
the gospel, but it also “proposes to
care for the churches by supplying
them with competent instructors
and overseers.” In other words the
Convention proposes to take-the
oversight of the churches and con
trol them by supplying them with
competent teachers from the Elders
of the local congregations up to the
self constituted-“ Pastor.” If this
is not ecclesiastieism at home w£ ■
would be pleased to know where to
go to find it. Yet we are told that
there can no possible harm grow
out of Conventions. These gath
erings. like »11 other expedients for
the spread <>f the gositel, are capa
ble of being greatly absurd, and on
this account should be constantly
looked after by the older and more
experienced brethren. We suppose
that those churches and preachers
in the given district who do not feel
justified in going into this kind of
conventional work will be regard
ed as opposed to cooperation and
unsound in the faith. This is the
spirit of sectarianism, the very
thing these good brethren profess
to oppose. A Convention has no
power to legislate nor to inter
fere with the work and discipline
of the local churches, but it is sim
ply their business to consult and
advise as to the bsst means of
preaching the gospel to the people.
Like the t’Ariafian Standard, we
exceedingly jegret that such a ineve *
should be made by Our brethren
just as the cooperative spirit is tak
ing hold of the brethren throughout
