business and charac ter of its proceedings We do not anticipate a stormy session as some seem to indicate nor do we expect to see all the changes that have been suggested These changes are not necessary to the work of the General Association and are not intended as much for that purpose as they are to gratify personal whims and prejudices Baptists are slow sometimes but they can be counted upon to support those leaders who bear their bcrdens in the heat of the day and who are earnest and faithful in that work There have been differences of opinion in the past and there wil- lIet differences of opinion in the fu ture but that does not argue that there must be numberless changes r = j Nmmodate oneor the other on this account The better plan would be to unite in making the work a success with the agencies now employed rather than to make these changes the basis of discus sion from now until August in stead of prosecuting plans and or ganizing our forces for raising mon oPerr

what portion of the old k f law it sought to amend This in itself is a victory for right and jus tice and at least defers the operation I of these unnecessary restric J tions upon the patrons ot

which thou hast learned and hast been assured of Timothy must q be rooted and grounded in the faith and not blown about by every wind or doctrine Deceivers would tell him that progress required him to give up his faith in the old truths and deceivers would wax worse 1 Knowing of whom thou hast learned them Referring to him self an inspired apostle This was the most reliable of all sources of all knowledge for the Holy Spirit cannot contradict himself Paul wrote this letter to the young man he loved so dearly from his dungeon in Rome not long be fore his martyrdom The second time he was imprisoned he was not treatedwith the same kindness shown him in his first imprison mentTimothy was pious talented and lovable but from the apostles ex hortations to him it is evident that he was by nature timid and inclined to shrink from hardships Pauls last words to him ring like the blast of a bugle In the previous chapter he had told of the perilous times that should come in the last day when believers should wax worse and worse But Timothy was well grounded in the Scriptures from his youth and therefore fully armed to meet the evil The danger was in his timidity Paul begins most earn estly I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ Thus will he impress Timothy of the greatness of the responsibility sT rests upon him as a preach er Who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdomThe quick are those who shall be living at the Judgment day All the saints would be more faithful if they would keep more in their minds that great day On that last day our Lords kingdom will be complete the last subject will have entered it- Preach the WordIt is by the foolishness of preaching that God will save sinners One of the worst signs of the times of which Paul speaks is the belittling of a the ser mon And the thing to be preached is the word of God Be instant in season out of seasonBe earn est and pressing Feel that indeed hell is an awful fact and sinners are going down to eternal death God is a witness of the faithfulness oi his preachers and they are to be judged at the last day for all un faithfulness Reprove rebuke 1exbortwith all longsuffering and doctrine Reprove has the mean I ing of convicting convincing TheIs preacher must convince his hearers of their errors in doctrine He must rebuke those who are unrully or immoral in life Exhort also had 1 1ameaning of comfort after reproving and rebuking he must encourag those who have seen the error of their way and are penitent With all long suffering and doctrine The preacher will need great pa tience This convincing and con venting will often be slow work and he will be careful not to alter or conceal his doctrine In the least through any hope in that way to i influence men for the time win come when they will notendure sound doctrine I It is of the church members Paul lk is speaking alasf that this shouldj r ever be truelThat is a reason for f Ithe pieac era to be instant in sea 1 son in preaching the Word instead of yieldief to the clamor and keeping sliest God Is watching and Ufthey shall be judged hereafter for v- r J their iakkUlMM But after their OWQ frstet bevil desiresI do sot limbtoy bear the word J 1 J c stalk them and L i1araY of iAHist 1Y i t tr before them i They shall heap to themselves teachers having itching earsIt is the hearers who have itching oars They are desirous of hearing new things hence they heap to themselves teachers having itching ears The word expresses cntempt all sorts oi teachers in great numbers Which makes one think of the innumerable conventions of the present day And they shall turn away their ears from the truth and shall be turned unto fables Men who will not endure sound doctrine are vic tims of all sorts pi chazes such as sniritualism etc It is a solemn fact in Divine Providence that when men do not like to return to the knowledge oi the truth God gives them up to a reprobate mind so that they lose all relish for sound doctrine It is an equally solemn fact that if the truth is repudiated the heart Will therefore cease to exercise itself about religious mat ters Fables rush in to occupy the place whicn denies a footing to truth Thelove of novelty the eagerness to hear all sorts of doc trine from a great variety of teach ers is a sign of the perilous times which were to come in the churches Are these times upon us now If they are the remedy is what Paul enjoins upon Timothy But watch thou in all things The attack comes in so many directions upon the Scriptures the doctrines the ordinances the virtues the lives The word translated watch however means rather Be sober in all things U That is calm and steadfast He will need these quali ties in contending witn false teach Endure Timothys weakness needed the exhortation to suffer hardship which these wcrds mean He would be attacked in all ways by those with itchiug ears who were eager for novelty They would call him old fogy be hind the times opposed to progress Ridicule and denunciation for nar rowness would be hurled at him from church members and such things would be hard to endure by one of Timothys timidity How ardently Paul longed to endow this son in the Gospel with strength such as he had himself Do the work ofan evangelist make full proof of thy ministry The work of an evangelist was to preach the Gospel with special ref erence to the conversion of sinners Timothy was put to saving souls by preaching as the first thing But he was also to fulfil his ministry He must not be so absorbed in his preaching as to forget hIS duties as pastor There is too great a neglect in these days of preaching to sipners by pastors Time was when every sermon closed with in exhortation to sinners Pastors must not forget to make the saving of the lost the first thing For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at band Poured out as a libation which pouring marked the conclu sion of the sacrifices Death wasI but victory for Paul His anxiety is all for Timothy and the churches- I have fought a good fight The Greek says the good fight Paul is not praising his own fighting though he might have done so The fight which he ban made against sin and evil which TImo- thy must make is the only good fight aye the only winning fight I have fimishecl my courseThe race he was running The figure was taken from the Olympian games He had run steadily the toe race set before him and was now nearing the goal where he would receive his crown I have kept the faith In spite oi all temptations and privations Paul kept the faith unadulterated and complete He had yielded not one jot or tittle to meet the views of the Jews or Gentiles He had not regarded Gods truth as an un certain thing about which his views to change Re had kept the faith as a precious charge from his Lord Apdns a victor to his Lord He claims nth twhich any faithful Christian cwuao do To run tHe course set liftexi him Jp fight the goqt flfht vV f T Vj J I 3r i r S lii A IJIf Y9i u r I sr r to keep the faith is within the reach of the humblest or his saints The crown of righteousness is the crown which shows the wearer
