Chriat The Mediator, (By H. X. Wells) Galatians 3:20 we find these words, "Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one." A mediator is a person or thing, which manages between two contending parties, in order to reconcile them. Man Is by nature Individualistic, and is only drawn to his fellows by a common Interest. No great movement has ever succeeded except through the medium of some rallying point, whether that point be the person of some magnetic individual or be some great idea, or both. So H is In the matter of man's relation to God—Christ as The Mediator has truly said, "I am the way, and the truth and the life, no one cometh unto the father but by me." To understand, both the mission of Jesus, and the meaning of these words, it is necessary to read carefully. Jesus does not say that, no one can come to God except through himself, for that, would be manifestly untrue. 'Abraham, Isaac, Moses and Isaiah knew God, and Peter said to the pagan, Cornelius, "God is no respector of persons; but in every nation, he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with him." But Jesus does say that no man can commune with God, as the Father, except through the knowledge and the rever ence which he can only learn through the teaching and life of our Lord. •This was the mission of Jesus— to save men—not from an everlasting torment, imposed upon them by an angry and austere Judge, but to save them from the darkness of despair, which is the hell of those who do not know the Father and his heart of love. Jesus came to teach us by his life, his death and suffering, that God is our Father; that God loves us, and by no other way could men be taught, "God is not far from each one of us,' and it is but for us to realize His presence and loving kindness; so it is not as one who pleads with God for us, but as one who holds our Father before us, plenteous in mercies, that Jesus "ever liveth to make intercession for us." As we realize this greater thought of the atonement, many doubts, many inconsistencies . are swept away Jesus did not reveal himself as a propitiator for sin: his teaching of "the scheme of salvation" is found in the parable of the prodigal son. Now the church would tell the story somewhat after this fashion: The father saw his son afar off and said to himself, "here is that sinner. He was a son of mine, but by his stub born folly, he has forfeited all claim upon me—however there is a way of escape provided; let him come to me by that way. Justice must be satisfied—without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin," Who is it that talks of remission—of of restitution— oi satisfying justice, as between father and son?The elder brother had something to say along that Mne aiid the church apparently has*mistaken his words for the message, which Jesus had intended to convey! No! Thank God. BALDWIN PARK Clarence L.
