HIS k ' BY JOSEPHINE K. HENRY. Another retreat of orthodoxy has made in a sermon preached by J. Kinsey Smith at the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church, Louls- - "5 ville, Ky., Rev. J. "Jonah." one. The on March 23. Kinsey Smith's subject was The subject is not a new Bible gentleman Jonah and she Bible character the whale, whom he was most intimately associated with, have been stars on the theologi- cal stage for centuries, rivaled only by Adam and the talking snake, who laid the foundation stone of theology. Jonah was an indispensable and able assistant in perfecting the scheme of salvation, for is Jonah had not remained in the whale's belly three days, and then been thrown up on dry land, how could it be proven that Christ? lay dead in the grave three days (according to the Bible Christ lay In the grave belies. A book on "Jonah" has been written 'two nights and one day), and then came up from the grave alive, and by a noted theologian, and in it he says thatvwhile Jonah was a guest at with strength to leave the earth and ascend to his "Father in the marine hptel, he could hear the scraping the sides of the Heaven?" How can any ciedulous mind sail to see that each of these great fish, and a 'picture has been d sea-wee- d miracles proves the other? ways seemed strange to me that the Inspired- writer in giving the history of Jonah did not plainly state that Jonah being swallowed by a whale, and turning against the whale's stomach came to earth again, was a type of a crucified Savior of the race, who should be'put to death by God's chosen people, sleep thiee days in the bowels of the earth, and then come to earth again.- - Is tliis had beenNlone, It might not have added to the prominence, and immortal same of Jonah, but it might have resulted in a general' acceptance of Christ without the devices, designs and pleadings of orthodoxy, for 2,000 years. No matter how this fish story is disposed of, J6nah is a. gentleman' that orthodoxy can't keep down any more han the whale could. TheLouisville times said that Dr. Smith's sermon on Jonah was interesting. ..Why not? Any human being who had passed i thro ugh such expeiience as, Jonah is Interesting both in or out'1 of a ser- al- It has Smith said that "the. Book of Jo- lhad .heen. a storm .center for land unfriendly criticism, Tind by many had "been held up to ridicule." This should not trouble tHe orthodox-fothe only thing on this earth that cannot be ridiculed is the T.RUTH. Dr. Smith proceeds in his sermon as sollows: " "Various schools of thought have applied themselves to the book. One holds that it is a pure work of fiction; another that the story of Jonah is allegorical, aster the manner of the parables of the New Testament, and intended to instill the lesson of God's goodness, forgiveness and mefcy. ."The evangelical school, however, explained Dr. Smith, held to the strict, line of the inspiration and truth of the Book of Jonah. It teaches that Jonah was actually swallowed by the great fish and lived within it until cast up.. "It is no more difficult to believe that Jonah was swallowed by the fish," continued the pieacher, "than to believe that Christ expanded the loaves and fishes into enough to seed the multitude or that he turned water into wine. The acceptance of a miracle is an act of faith. Why is it harder to accept one miracle than another?" One- - tnmg is certain, the story of Jonah is a pure fiction, an allegory, or a FACT. Ficton and allegory are twins. A parable is defined as .a moral sable, an allegory like a parable is also a sable, so both are pure fiction. The Bible abounds in parable and over allegory. They ride rough-shotruth; common sense, natural law, history, arithmetic, geography and astronomy. The Bible allegory is recognized at once because it is always preposterous, impossible and incredible, yet we aie taught that it is but an ambuscade for the truth. Strange that the Divine Author should not bring poor mystefied .hu-- , manity face to face with the truth upon the questions on wlich it is claimed the immortal destiny of the race hangs. Bible writers alone employ metaphor, allegory and parable to puzzle tie reader. PEven in Esop the Arabian Nights, Munchausen, Josephus and Confucius In their ornate, decorative style, made the meaning of their allegories perfectly clear. Is the whale really swallowed Jonah, to give to the world a type of Christ lying in the grave three days, it was hard on the whale, harder on Jonah, and the haziest allegory ever presented to the human d mind. Dr J Kinsey Smith in his sermon said "he believed that Jonah was actually swallowed by the great fish and lived within It until cast up," Dr a "man, the noblest work of God," Hot Springs (from a man in his right mind).

It is in fact very difficult to believe either of these, so difficult that i he world at large rejects them, and they are believed or preached only by the unevoluted clergy and their credulous flocks. But it is more difficult to believe the Jonah story than that "Christ multiplied the loaves and fishes and changed water into wine." Neither Jonah nor the whale were God, and it is claimed that Christ is God, and the ' Christian teaching is that "all things are possible with God." Certainly it cannot be claimed that the man Jonah and the hig fish could perform such wonders as God. The Rev. Smith says "the accept ance of a miracle is an act of faith. Why is it harder to accept one miracle than another?" It is not, to those who accept on faith all' that is preached from the iralpit as truth.
