The World's Debt to Reformers. 2 Klngi 22:1, 2, 8; 23:1-3, 21-25, BY WM. E. GILKOV, I). D. Editor of The Coiigregatlonallal The world has always needed reform, and reform has never come about without reformers. Things do not Just merely happen In the world of progress, but they arc brought about by vltlon and courage and devotion. Heredity reveals some surprises. It may be that sometimes It endows an individual with a preponderance of the evil qualities of tliose who have gone before him, whereas at other times it saves almcst all the good that was In an evil ancestry and showers these good qualities upon the Individual. A Sinister Background Here we have a young lad coming to the throne of Judah who was the son of Amon and ihe grandson of Mnnasseh, both of whom had teen evil kings. They had been careless regarding religion and the idolatry that was always threatening (lie life of Israel had encroached upon the community. Apparently there were MM faithful souls In Israel, but they had not been able to stem the tide of evil influences. Then came a remarkable event. Apparently in cleaning the temple, itself an evidence of Its neglect, a book was found which was to be the Inspiring document of a religious revolution In Israel. This book of the law would be a parchment containing portions of the law of Israel, and the paichinent probably contained what we now know as the Book of Deuteronomy. The young king was deeply impressed when he was told about this book, and he arranged to have II read so that the people might hear it. It Is a dramatic and striking picture Hint we have ol the king standing by a ptllnr in the temple, making a public covenant with the Lord to walk after his ways and keep his commandments and testimonies, while from the newly-dit- covercd book is read the covenant which the king seeks to place upon all the iwople. It wns. of course, not an age when even parchments could be passed around from hand to hand. The method of imparting religious truth wns largely this method of the spoken word. The New Impulse The discovery of the law, and Ihe coming to the throne of a righteous king immediately brought about transforming aeal. No truly religious experience can come Into the life of a man, be he king or commoner, without creating in him the impulse toward better living and the Impulse to make the world mound him a better place in which to live.- The more pronounced is his leadership arid the larger and more definite is his responsibility, the more vitally, if he becomes religious at all, religion affects his daily purjTOses find acts. This young king, of course, must have been very largely in the hands of good counselors, but even a young king could have been very willful and could have balked the purposes ol his counselors if he had chosen to do so. The record shows how quickly things can b changed when there is really the purpose to change them and people go about making the change in the right way. The fact of the matter is that great masses of iieople are easily swayed lor good or for evil, and that while we think In o democracy of the future of. tlie nation depending large, ly on the popular will, the fact Is that the people need effective leadership, and if leaders betray their tiust oiie is almost sure to see a people misled in folly and in injustice. There is much (hat ona could apply along this line to the life oi our own nation at the present, time. Fortunately we have many in authority and In positions of power whose Ideals and whose purposes are right, who have pledged themselves to honesty in action and who have set before themselves national goals of worthiness and'hoiior. But unfortunately, we have many, also, in high places who are self- seekers, or whose philosophy of life is weak and uncertain, who lack tlie courage and ability that on-jli! to charncterlze the place;; thai tiiey fill. If our people arj well led, they are in other respects, also misled, and despite the supposed pro-tress!. of our nation there Is still a largo work of reform. Inspecting the Law : The reforms executed under Jo-, siah proceeded upon knowledge. The . work of reform was not a!l a mat- .. ter of emotionalism, Uiau^h samn.- emotions have their plar:. The written word of truth was at th;.' heart of the movement. Tiic peo- .. pie had respect for th; lav: and it iv.-is this rcspict for (ho U«- thai brought about new conditions of spiritual and social welfare. '•.'. We live in an age when the•• uiitlcn word Is f.vnllahle in- ::rv- one v.'ho can read. It is not :i?cc's- sary that we should so and stand .' in the temple while someone reads the'book (o us, and y?t, perhaps.' we have lost something in :his ajc of almost limitless opportunity fo:- the individual. It may be that wo have lost our touch with th; com-' munitj-, that we arc Individuate who stand alone and !;d IUL'.'I tense of responsibility, that neither in church nor in the sane- tity of our private lives do we pay sufficient attention to.the rcadin; of the law of God, which"..for us is • the larger law of love—tiip : law re- vcaled not only in the written won! but in the actual example of Jesui Christ and those who have lived in' his name ncrt In his spirit. :: : The Improved WHIPPET advanced in Beauty-Comfort - Smoothness - Safety • Sao the Improved Whippet -drive ir-and you will be Jor- prUed to learn how far a very modest expenditure goei In buying quality transportation.
