Scriptures Justify us in Changing Our form of Church Government John 172028 Bph 48 6 1116 Paper read before the Louisville M ele 4 Conference and by Rev C C Bates February 29th and published by order of the body To properly answer this question we wuut first know what our form of church government Is Hisuoz says she Baptists accept f the aoVpeudent forumf government lu which the governl K power rests entirely with the people that is the body of members teach local church each being entirely separate from and independent from all others so far as authoi Ity and control are concerned Each particular individual church is actually and absolutely independ ent iu the exercise of all lie churchly rights privileges ana prerogatives in dependent of all other churches indi viduals and bodies of men whatever i and Iis under law to Christ alone Lieu il does seem to us that the above named sori tares strengthen oui form ol church government Instead of Justifying us Iu changing it the Sav lour prays that we may all be cue not J astuasteraandsetvautsbutubrethrenohlldreu i same body members of the same family and soldiers marching under the same bannerLure- Ijlultsays A uew corn

ills tarone where all was holiness joy and tit aut to te level of a car outers aoa burn in a manger and having not where to lay Hid head Christ prayed that we might be wade perltot iu one in order that there might be no suite no conteutons uo 0Mvymg no dlputes no jealousies and J no henrlburnlugf A body is perfect Ir when it has all of 1 e parts aud each of Iheaa p tfl is in good 0d r So the union of the body of ourhtlana for which the Savior prayed is complete I when it is as the b dy of a man in per jt feet health For by one spirit are wel All baptised into one body whether web Jews or Gen Ilex whether we be Bond or free and have been all made to drink it to one spirit For the boy ii not one member but many If the foot shall say became I am not the band I am not of the b dy i is it not tnerof ore of the boly 7 And if the ear shall soy because 1 am not the eye I- aaa not oi tile body II it not therefore of the may If the whole body were an eye where were the hearing If i the whole bearing where were the melliun But pOW has God set the members eery one of them in the body so It has pleased him And if they were all one raeaabor where were 1 b t l the body But now are the many members yet but one body And the eye cannot say to the hand I have no no need for thee nor again the head to the feet I have na need of you Nay much more those me nbersof the body which seem to bi more feeble are nec essary And those members of the body which seems to be more feeble are necessary And those members of the body which we thiuk to be less honorable upon these we bestow more abundant honor and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness For our comely parts have no need but God bath tempered the body to gether having given more abundant honor to that part which lacked That there should be uo schism in the body but that the members should have the same care one for another And wheth er me member suffer all the members suffer with it or one member be honored all the members rejoice with it Now we are the body of Christ and members in particular I Cor 1213 2 So the Savior prayed that we be one not from a stand point of nature or worldly affairs but one iu our aim for heaven and our efforts to glorify God aud to build up His cause David could fight In Saul coat of mall and I caunot see with your eye understand with your understanding or reason with your mind Yet David fought a victorious battle for God and if God I help us we will with what powers of mind that He has given us make it into the haven of rest aud take others1 with us- Then our resent form of church government does away with the idea of fear and worship of man or auy set of men and emphasizes that scripture which saya cook unto me aud be ye saved all the euda of the earth for I am God and there is none else Isa 4522 And again Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith Bob 123 Gods word Is the sups emo and infallible rule for our guidance and our church government is iu accord ance with it We hav no right to go beyond the teachings of the scriptures and therefore do not believe in Ills au thority of thv decrees of Pope council and conventions save as they are en dorsed by the Bible Of course we must not let our church government lead us into things contrary to the will of God or interfere with our duty to our- elbwmen and we claim that it does lot do this but emphasizes love to God aud our fellowmen ant does uway with tuu fear of mull As Baptists we tel that our church government is sup ported by the word of God even those passages given in our subject And we foul proud of it not because it gives us the right to be narrow bigoted and intolerant but humble patient gener ous Mud loving Then under it let us march to victory keeping ever before us One

establish their right to vote in the ted oral courts Jackson W Giles has now gone twice to t e Urited State Supreme Court for relief from the discrimina tion practiced against him by the Ala bama authorities and each time has been thrown out of court on a techni j mem1bereBrewer and Brown took his aide and Justice L re wer pretty sharply riddled thearguuieut by which Justice Holmes iu the majority opinion broadened the scope of the case beyond the record of appeal on the question of the Circuit Courts jurisdiction and proceeded to to declare that aa Giles at tacked the validity of the new Alabama couatiluiou he could have no standing aa a petitioner for registration claiming that be was qualified uu der it Justice Brewer held that no question but that of jurisdiction was before tue court that the lower court clearly had jurisdiction and that- t e refusal of the circuit judge to take it should have beeu reversed In the later case just decided Giles gets less comfort Justice Harlan alone dissents from the prevailing opinion written by Justice Day The case is again dismissed this time for want of jjurisdiction Giles brought action In the state curts but was de feated Ue then appealed on the ground that his right under the Con stitution of the United Stales were denied It seems however that in the state courts he did not base his claim to registration on those rights but en on Lila rights under the state laws Hence no Federal question was raised on which the Uuited States courts could review the action of the state tribunals for all that appeared regis try was deuied for reasons other thau any which would have infringed his riguiH under the Federal Constitution This omission was fatal to the appeal JN either of these cases secured a decision the nitrite of the question of Ne gro rights and the valid ty of the Southern State constitutions avowedly Intended to disfraushise Negroes It is to be hoped that before sung some body with the requisite legal skill wilt get the matter squarely before the Su prewe Court and lorco a decision uu the validity of me disfranchising clause of these constitution Tue ojurt will wake void any such decision as long as it

United States supreme Court to do It in the Urei Scott use ia a warning which will not be forgotten The court has uo business with a case which does nut come before it properly Neither can It be expected to teach lawyers how to prepare their canes or to wake allowance fur mistakes We are not yet prtpareu to believe that the Supreme Court itS helpless to enforce the bupreuie law of the laud and protect citizens of the United States from invasion of their rights by the States or that the judges iu a spirit of acquiescence iu conditions that cannot ue conveniently changed are prepared to abdicate their fuuc tious aa expounders the Constitution as it ex BIB However souud may be the argument of expediency with ref ereuce to new political notion on this difficult question the duty of the court is plait and the rights of a Negro when his ease is properly presented should be upheld as vigorously as they would have been iu 1871 when nation al sentiment was strong in favor of the most vigorous enforcement of the new constitutional amendments If they really want to establish their right to vote that disfranchised blacks should proceed to lay the Touudatiojs tor their suits under able legal advice and go 10 the Supreme Court with a case which cannot be dismissed on technicalities The Now York Tribune- UNIVERSITY NOTES 3 U Rah rub rah rah 8 U Rab rub rah rah Hurrah I Hurrah 1

the undersigned was directed to write to the first Baptist church at Newport relative to ask of it a great favor in this hour of trial Rev Har rison Nutter resigned his charge hero greatly to the

ohiiatmu Kiuduesd and love fur a struxgle church you will not consent to the resignation of Brother Nutter and allow him to return Co our told e has beeu unanimously called to uu but we tear that he

you that we would gladly make this sacri fice for you were you in the same cou dicion that we are now aud would call upon us Our church must be preserved The colored people of this vicinity need it If we can succeed in working out of the debt now hanging over us no human calculation can estimate the grea good that it will be We feel there are other ministers who can serve your church while just at this particular time it doesnt seem that auy one can take the place of Brother Nutter iu the love of his people and the estimation of outsiders tVe beg that you consider this question pray erfully at your next church meeting and decide to release Brother Nutter rom his charge there and allow him to return to the people that need him so much With assurance of Christian love and with a hope that God

meet the same fate are not surprises to those who have followed the trend of the decisions I of that body upon questions involv ing the rights of citizenship of Ne groes There is some hope howeve- in the fact that the Alabama case was dismissed upon a technicality and not upon its merits and that when a case gets properly belore the court in such a way as to make evasions impossible the right kind of a decision must come unless the general government is willing toI admit that it is unable to protectt the rights of its citizens in the sev I eral states It also encourages the I belief that the remedy for the dis- franchisementj o f Negroes in the South must be found in legislation by Congress instead oi through the courts but be that as it may tha- II question some day or other will b settled as it should be and as iitI must be- THE case of Jackson Giles in volving the suffrage clause of the new constitution of Alabama was dismissed by the United States Supreme Court for want off jurisdic t tion This does not finally dispose of the question for this is only on of a series of cases involving th constitutionality of the Alabama suffrage laws brought about the same time so as to avoid unneces sary delay in bringing other suits iif the first one was decidedadversely But this decision indicates the trend of reasoning followed by the court and again shows that Assoc ate I Justice Harlan is the only Justic- on the bench that may be depend ed upon under circumstances to sustain the contention that th- rr Constitution of the United States guarantees equal rights to every I citizen and exclusive privileges to none WHILE Gov Vardaman of Miss issippi may be opposed to the edu cation of the Negro and is willing to have him grow up in ignorance and vice he seems to be unwilling to have him lynched and burned by mobs in that State and for tha t endorsement of legal trial and legalI punishment he should be given due credit Last Sunday he went to Dadesville in that State in personI to prevent the lynching of a Negro prisoner and did have him remov ed to a place of safety to await trial under at least the fOl ms of the law He declared that he was opposed I to mob voilecce and pledged him self to insist upon prompt trials andI legal punishment of prisoners dur ing his term of office If this was done in every state lynching would cease and the law would be

Lesson SUNDAY MARCH 13 1 to DEATH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST S IIMatt 14112 Moitro TEXTBe thou faithful l unto death and I will give thee a crow of life Rev 210t At that timeWhen Jesus and hfe disciples were preaching and working miracles in Capernaum and ftf ulrages1 of Galilee Herod may have heard of Jesus before but this is the prst time his attention was aroused The common people for a year had been hearing him gladly now for thefirst time the news off his wonderful works reaches the price which ruled his country Herod the tetrarchSon off Herod the Great to whom his father had left the province of Galilee and Pelrea Tetrarch is a ruler of fourth and Herod s dominion are said to have been onefourth af the Roman province of Syria He had inherited all his fathers vileness of moral character without his strength courage and ability This is John the Baptist j he risen from the dead Conscience was not dead in this wicked man though it had no power to restrain him Like so many who defy the authority of God and refuse to believe his prophets Herod was superstitious Such men are always ready to believe the untrue Herod could believe John had risen from the dead but we never hear of believing in the resurrection of Jes us A bad man he had believed in a miracle but that belief did not Ir ad him to repentance For Herodias sake HisI brothers Philips wife Herodias was a grand daughter of Herod the Great and therefore both her hus bands were her half uncles This Philip was not the tetrarch but another son Herod to whom had Ileft none of his kingdom and who was living in obscurity in Rome Herod Antipas the tetrarch had been married to a daughter of Aretas the king of Arabia But on a visit to Rome he had met Herodias a beautiful ambitous uncrupulous woman Her husband was poorHerod was rich was a prince might eas become a king as his father done Therefore she entangled in her toils and at last elope whim nth taking her daughter Salon Herod sent away his wife although he knew such conduct would incense l the people of his province and cause war with his fatherinlaw1 Aretas iris Marriage with Herod ias was his ruin tempoarily j s I was no doubt ruined before he metsusI I her The marriage shocked subjects who were still further alienated and angered by the murdo r of John the Baptist Aretas defeated him in war and was only prevented e from completing his overflow by Roman interposition He rodias in her ambition persuaded to go to Rome to ask the title off king from the emperor Caligula But instead Caligula deposed him banished him to Lyons and afterwards to Spain where he died His downfall began on the day he first came under the influence of Hero i as yet she was not the cause the occasion If a man is ruined a woman the question is how came j his soul into such a state of wea ness and wickedness capblea is could not have influenced John the t Baptist had he been in Herods place I no more than Mary of Scotland could John Knox It is not lawful Lev 186 a- i62021The ad best comment tors are the opinion that John did s not denounce Herod to the multi tudes but reproved him only to his face The Greekshowsr that John reproved him repeatedly Neither Christ nor his apostles denounced the powers that bethey left Cae sars affairs to Ceasar Nor did they shrink from preaching right eousness boldly when brought face to face with Herod Agrippa and Felix It is probable Herod sent for John hoping to convince him that his marriage was allowable in the peculiar circumstances of the casethe circumstances are always peculiar in the eyes of the sinner in order that Johns influence might claim the anger of the peop- ls his marriage Herod seems to have borne Johns reproofs with some patince for Mark tells us he heard him gladly but Herodias was fiercely angry and urged Herod to put him to death He feared the multitude They were already alienated and the death of their prophet would make themI dangerous Even a despot cowers before a resolute people Herods birthdayThis feast was probably kept in the palace of Machaerus and John was in a dun Lioaruins of that palace two dungeons can yet be seen in one of which doutbless the Baptist was impri5ro oned It was probably due to t machinations of Herodias that zero made his feast here instead of isTiberias his favorite abode Danced before themIn the imidst The danbe was a panto i ime probably of a voluptouse char acter and was performed in theI midst with the intoxicated party on their couches forming a circle abo her Such conduct was deemed immodest by Jews Greeds and RomansSchaff hisAnd she being before instructed of her mother Instructed here means led on instigated wrought upon Her mother had put her up to the dancing and after Herod had made his promise Salome went to her mothers apartments and was further instructed In a chargerIn a wide sh low dish a platter The narative seems to imply that the head of ti Baptist was brought while the feast still lasted Lange It would not take long for the execution or to into the dungeon arouse the sleeping Baptist cut off his head and bring it to Salome on a charger Did she stand there in the midst till the head was brought terflyrl malignhadlty alhim11 Salome was young but she was al ready like her mother in character beedeath of John and his prototypes translation And yet who shall say that a chariot of light was a more glorious ending for Gods faithfulf one than the chariot of swift pain oThe one human being whom Je Pthisj was this weak wicked Herod Whether he was more wicked than I others Pharasees and hypocrites I whom Jesus denounced or whether it was because of contemptible weakII ness which led him to surrender manhood to an imperious wickedI women no one can say Wh fHerod sent for Jesus with polite words he refused to go j when I Iblthreatened him through the pret tended friendly warning of the Phar asees Jesus called him that fo rl prisondierit prebutm hrbymay thkat Saviour enters uponno terms Whom he avoids when they flatter rebukes when they threaten and at last punishes by complete silence Lange Ahab and Jezebel are closely reproduced in Herod and andwickedtheir beautiful
