The route Hhould be chunked to that of I'liorMo Htroel, in order |,|iat the Immediate to-wri may receive some benefit A^alii. I.he strongest, feature in favor of the new route is that it. will bring all thi'ough-goii>K trallle Info the city, where trade is possible, and where the town may he seen ;uid receive Homo recognition from l.ho traveling public. With t,hc road running on San Bernardino road the public might without having knowledge that the town was situated soutli of the highway. Public spirit, In the direct •work of civic progress, demands that the citizens of Covina pull together for this change In the route of the "good roads." The change Is the logical thing to do. The voice of the citizens as a whole should be heard at once on thin matter. The Argus believes that, the majority will bo In favor of thin change, for It means a benefit to the city us a whole, and not to a few individuals. A REPLY TO W. E. BROWN. The Churches are Failing to Reach the Heart and Mind of our Common Humanity. To the lOditor of the Argus: In last, week's edition of the Argus is a cominunieat Inn from Mr. William K. lirown of UK- Christian'iico Publication Committee, It being an nriKAver to an address by Rev. Simmer T. Atari In, pastor of the First Christian Church. Santa Barbara, it has J!iblo to be the word of Ood. It; will alrd your loins, walking in the spirit that givoth life;, holding fast, to the great, truths that. Jesus taught, la.v!:;g aside the weight, of prejudice and non-essential doctrine, that yen will find men ready rind anxious to take of the bread of life. Long ago would be-better to drop this point, ;uid to call i! what it. Is In a large/ and truer sense., i.e., the "Word of Life." If Is just, here that, all Hie trouble among religious believers has arisen -UK? literal acceptance of the of the hook. Tills of necessity | Micali showed inefficacy of the leads to confusion, Hie injunction against profanity, and the story of Klisha who turned upon the children who reviled him, and "cursed them in the mime of Jehovah," are both found In t.ho same book. The parable of the prodigal son, showing how the Infinite, love of Ood reaches past all barriers to draw his erring children to hlrn, Is not in keeping with the Judaic leaching of Paul concerning vicarious atonement, and the propla- tion of an angry Ood. It 1 the teachings of Paul he accepted aa being of equal vicarious propitiation which the church teaches today, and also he declared the essentials of true religion and worship. "Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or ten d, rivers of oil? Shall I give my first, born for my transgression, the fruit of my body -for the sin of rny soul?" "He hath showed thee, O man what is good, and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with thy God?" Oh, you preachers! When ; Vill you authority with the sermon on the leftrn lhat thls le the whole n Hbst ance r been my pleasure to IK ar Dr. Martin, and while? I wish in answer Mr. Tirown, 1 do not wish to appear as champion Or. Martin, nor of his I have for KII (!ich>n! reason made (•••omowhal of a study of this esoteric •ilii losophy, culled Chrlslhin Science. I also have several copies of "Science and Health," none of them like uny of tin- others, except in the binding and price. And if I am In this letter able to show that Mr. Hrowu Is not well informed in regard to the teachings of liis own religion, 1 assure you that It among all the been able to ills- is mount, then "the author and finisher of our faith" may have been the author, but lie assuredly was not the finisher of our faith. Careful consideration will not, fail to point out the fact that Paul never fully divorced himself from his early training. A lawyer today, after upending n few mature years In a law school, will forever after think and speak from a legal bias. We know that this Is also true of all professional and college men—that their few years of special (raining leaves its mark upon their lives, and shapes the very expression of their thought, in regard to the most trivial affairs. How much more then, ii man like Paul, who from his infancy had been trained in the nclu'iol of the most reactionary He- brewism? The orthodox church today, taking! The and goal of the religion yon should teach, but do not teach? Paul himself said "That the fruit of. the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, temperance. Against such there is no law." When you give us more of this, you Presbyterians and Methodists am! Christian Scientists and Baptists, arc! less (or none at all) of mortal rr.ind, devils, and the- shedding of blood, you will not fail to reach the heart and mind of our common hu- Ciod grant that your eyes may be opened, and that you may see the "light wliii h Mhineth more and more unto the perfect day."
