Our Sunday Sermon
Text "Ye are the salt of the
earth: but it the salt have lost Its
savour, wherewitto shall It be salt
ed? It Is thenceforth good for noth
ing, but to be cast out, and to be
trodden under foot of men."
Theme Good for nothing people.
Jesus used salt and light to illum
inate the sermon on the mount. He
pointed to the twinkling lights of the
distant city and told the disciple,
"Ye are as a city set upon a hill
and which cannot be hid. You are
the light of the world." He used the
salt to explain the qualities which
are to keep the world from decayini
as a piece of meat. Salt was offered
to Jehovah in the religious rites of
the ancient Jews Homer said it was
divine. Tacitus and Levy and Plu
tarch mentioned It, the last express
ing his surprise that the Egyptian
priests did not use salt.'
In the sermon on the mount, Jesus
said to his disciples that what they
believed and did was destined to save
the whole earth, provided their relig
ion did not lose Its power as salt Its
savour, else it would be ' worthless
and be swept out to be trodden un
This religion Is summed up in the
beatitudes and conjures peace, pur
ity, humility, meekness and enduranc
under oersecution. These virtues are
as salt crystals to the nations. The
world will be saved not by gunpowdei
front without but by the application
of Christian principles within. We
cannot save the world by the force or
arms. Our enemies are within, not
without. Our decay will come from
domestic, not foreign, corruption,
rw w Ralvation is the preservative
principles of the pure, simple gospel
of Christ, '
salt which loses Its savour des
cribes the people who are good for
nothing. The loss of power is in in
verse ratio to the organic value oi
that which is lost. A good for noth
ing diamond is more worthless than a
rotten walnut. There Is noining so
good for nothing as good for notn
in. rolie-ion. A counterfeit dollar
piece does more harm than a counter-
Religion which has lost its power,
Its saltiness, What good is it? The
pepper loses its grip, the orange its
flavor, the flower its fragrance, salt
its savour and man his moral influ
ence. It is a terrible tragedy, this
loss of power. It is like crushing
the mighty lantern in the "house
at the mouth of the Columbia which
has for years guided ships in and out
of the harbor.
That there are too many useless
people in and out of the world
church members, citizens.soldlers, pol
ltlcians, men and women is apparent
and we should all devoutly strive to
recover those fundamental principles
which save things. The sermon on
the mount is the moral salt of this

As one of Oregon's ploneprs, she

seven years, being crippled by a fall,
