(Tip tlio Publisher of the Maupin
Times. J There is an initiative
measure before the voters of Ore
gon for a rcpeul of the Sunday
law now upon the statute books.
Every such law enacted by human
authority ought to be repealed;
for civil powers are acting without
divine sanction when they enact
such laws. There are many logi
cal reasons in proof of the foregoing
Ciyil power is ordained of God
to keep men civil in respect to
their relulions to one another, but
not to enforce obedience to relig
ious duties. , Christ made this
distinction when Ho said. "Ren
der unto Ceasar the things that
are Caesar's and unto God the
things that are God's." Civil
duties fall within the province of
civil government, and religious
duties fall within the jurisdiction
of divine government, . Legiatation
relative to religious duties is for
bidden in Christ's doctrine; and
our national constitution also for
bids such enactments, ."Congress
shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or pro
hibiting' the free exercise thereof."
All Sunday laws are Unconstitu
When men legislates upon the
roligiouB duties of his fellow men,
he encroaches upon the preroga
tives of the divine government, or
assumes divine authority. Gcd
has spoken relative to Sabbath
observance, and human enact
ments can add nothing to the
divine command, Miin can en
force the claims of civil law; but
he cannot enforce the claims of
the divine law because they apply
to the spiritual nature of man.
Men are endowed by their
Creator with certain inalienable
rights among which are life, liberty
and the pursuits of happiness.
Civil government is ordained for
the Very purpose of securing and
conCerving these rights instead of
depriving men of them, Every
man is at liberty to work or rest
as he may choose, on all days.
There can be but one restriction
Upon this natural liberty; and that
is in the case of the Christian: he
will rest upon that day which
God has set apart fof 'divine wor
ship, and thus render service to
God, not to the civil power, No
man or civil power, has the right
to deprive any man of his liberty
in th's respect. This is the natural
right of every man. but all Sun
day laws Interfere with human
fights in respect to this principle,
rhe rest which God desires must
be rendered voluntarily of the
individual's own foe will; and
hence no enforced rest can be of
any benefit to meet the require-'
merits of the divine will.
Muny Christian people reason
that it is the dufy of the state to
enforce a day of rest for the moral
benefit of its citizens, and also to
enable Christians to worship God
unmolested oil the Sabbath day.
But this logic is fallacious; for no
possible good can come to those
who rest Uhder constraint; and
as for disturbers of public worship
on any day, we have a salutary

restraints upon their fellow men

But even God defers all judgement
on such questions to the last day,
Jesus sajs, "The word that I spake
the same shall judge him in the

ment in such cases, why should
we not keep silence?

choose to make it a day of worship;
leave them free to do so without

free to use it according to their

restraint: let them not use it in
a way to interfere with the God
given, or natural rights of others.
