SATURDAY, MARCH 15, 1930. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNSLLSVIILE, PAGE FlVfr. Is the World Getting Better or Worse? Yes! "Brass Tacks'* on the Sunday School Lesson 3v DR. ALVIN K BlCU, Is ttlc woild getting better? Some folks ai-gue that it is, ,in(I point to numerous evidence of tho progress of rlghteouHiiCHS and KO"! will In the world. Is tho world getting worse? Other folks argue thut It is, and can point to just as numerous evidences ""of th-o progress of iniquity, crime and strife in the world. Th fact is that both art right. There i i more good In the world today than ever before, and Lheio is also moro evi.l In the world than over boforo. This is in accord ^ I t h o-ur Lord's purab!e of the tares and the wheat "The field Is the world; the good seed are tho children of the kingdom but the tares are the chil'iren of tho wicked one; the ·"' enemy that sowed them is the devil." "Let both grow together until the harvest" is the King's own explanation o! why he tolerates this Increase of evil si do by side with increasing righteousness. The .UuHturd Soed and Leaven. The third of Christ R Kingdom parables pictured his kingdom as "like to a grain of mustard soed which a man took, and sowed IE his field; which indeed is tho least of all seeds; but when it is grown, it la the greatest among herbs, and becoiueta a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof." It was a prophecy of that unfortunate day when tho Church abandoned the spirit and policy of the lowly Nazarene and j;rasped after worldly gloiy and political power, with the result tl;at forces of e\il like foul br-cods of birds found it paid to seek shelter in the church. Tho fourth of this group of parables Is companion to the third and points to an unfortunate tendency o£ the Kingdom In another direction, viz. In its inner corruption v.iOiin itself. "The Kingdom of heaven Id liko unto leaven, which a woman tiok and hid ,!_ in three measures of moal, till the ' whole was leavened." Leaven or yeast athtayi represents tho principle of evil in doctrine or Jlfe, as Canst warned his disolivies to "beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod." It was the King's warning agulnst false teaching which by its subtle methods would prev ute and corrupt the whole body of teaching and life. The Treasurer and the Pearl. Again in tho fifth and sixth parables we have two companion parables representing respectively the treasure the King sees hidden in Isral and the pearl ho flnGM in tho Church. "Again, tho Kingdom of Heaven is like unto treasure Ivid in a field; the which when a man bath found be hidoth, and for Joy thereof goeth and eelleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field," From hte own interpretation of the second parable we know that here, too, "the field is the world," and the Son of Man ic the one who has bought the world including Israel, which during these "times of the gentiles" is like a hidden treasure of unsuspected value which the Son of Man at hla coming again will disclose in its richness. "Aga.ii, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearle; who, when h« haxl found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it." Christ is not this pearl of great price which we have bought by our surrender of all we have. We have not bought Chrtet, but he has bought us, He again ae in all the other parables is the man of activity. Tho Judgment Parable. The concluding parable of the group ie, that of the net and the separation of its contents, a parable of the nnal judgment at the end of the ago in which evil will be separated from good, the good to finally come into its in the trumph of which it hte often been cheated tn this life.

During a recont visit of Roger Babfion to the laboratory of the great Inventor, Edison, this question was neked: "Mr Kdison, what new or radical invention do you anticipate during tho next few years?" To this Inquiry Mr. Edteon replied. "Babson, I do not pose aa 'a preacher; but let me tell you that if there le a God lie will not permit iw to advance m u t h farther materially until we catoh up spiritually. Everything must be kept on a balance. When any body or face goes off on a, tangent there is a smash. This applies to America a« well as p\ory nation that has ever existed." Tho problem of evangelism is a much discussed question. It must exist in eome form or other In the church, but like faehlone, it change* its form from time to time. Every community, as well as every Individual, must bo reminded of its duties and obligations. In this brief ser- monette I try to present a method that will be of much lelp to the world and especially oi' our community. If the Church te to be the "restorer of the breach" it too must have a method, and this method must bo suitable to the age. To do (his we muet discover some of tho fundamental principles on which Christianity reels. Wo must find and set to work in men's minds Ideals that deal w i t h tho realities of the Kingdom of Cod. Wo muet not look too much to the records of the past, but coneldei the future. Evangelism in the llomp. It has been t i u l y aaid that tho "Home \a the soul's first temple " On Its altars the fltet spark of loyXr te| kindled. Social workers inform us i that the institutional child makes an inferior citizen. If this then be true Third of Series of Sermons Bearing on "Go To Church Month." tho best child for the Kingdom of God Is that child that to raised, in the Christian home. A largo ilunilier of children born in Christian' jioraoa are forever lost to the churcrl because family religion is at low ebb. The "family altar" is miesing. ' in the old Roman homo wo are told that the altar flres were continually kept burning, Taut the family altar as established in the old New England homo is relegated to the past. It belongs to tho "antiques" of the day. Parents give over to the church what they should do themselves. In the homo a child ought to learn its first lisons--love, trust, obedience--until by faith in lt« mother it rises to faith In a Heavenly Father. Whence shall this faith come ie the cry. Like the story told in I King6 20:40. Parents busy here and there with the really unimportant things of Hfe. Childhood days are noon pasoed away and (ho child goes mt Into the world without a touch of the religious. If our homes coukl realize the above facts the Kingdom of God would be nearer realization than it le today. The Work of the Church. Without question tho church has a work to do in aupplementlng the work of tho home. In many casee it must do the work that should be done In pie home. Then the church or Sunday scool that has a lower aim than that of bringing ite children Into a vital and saving relationship with ' Christ i« a failure. Each year a large number of our Sunday school pupils piu,s out unsaved. Thte should causo us much alarm, and we should seek to remedy tho defect. The church of the past perhaps hae stressed too much on past lislory and not enough of present day needtj and the principles of right ivlng. A working goal should be "Our children for Chrtet and Hie Church." Special Evangelism. When our duty has been done both n home and church there ie still a argo field untouchedv we still owe a luty to "the lost sheep ofthe bouse oC srael." To reach this class of folk s the task of the church. At this tolnt of the discourse a proper inter- iretation of the term evangelism may ·e given. Evangelism is not method; vangelism Is passion, passion aroused n the human heart by the love and he power of the Gospel. It wa« pas- Ion that sent J«eus forth from the wilderness Into Galilee proclaiming [le gospel. It was passion that eent 'aul on his missionary journeys and ,·1 the end eent him to his death in i he Itoman dungeon. Evangelism and i iteslons are so closely allied that it ie i ftentlmes difficult to separate the t wo. On the Eddystone Hghtouse this in- t cription may be found: "To give 1 ght and save life," Motto for every hurch: "Life Saving Ie Heal Evan- f eliem," And the greatest need of 1 ve church today is to make known t le true ideals,of God a« revealed to i s through His Son. God's appointed r ^encies for the evangelization of the i orld are--His man, Hie spirit and 1 te word. The finishing task awaits the indi- \! and this individual muet be c i that knoweth His Lord and Maat r. No work is more profitable than t ito. Take care of the home and the r lurch will take care of Itself. May { od give us the wisdom to meet the d Mnands of the age. Solemn obllga- t one rests upon us. Let us not be d acouraged and when wo have lived a id served our day may we hear Him s y: "Well done" because thou bast h ^Iped repair the breaches and re- s ore the paths.
