remarriage is today receiving more active consideration from the good people of America than it has rrtormany years past made necessaI ry by the increasing vorces granted by our civil courts for other reasons than the one al lowed by Jesus Matt 19 chapter and 9 verse Dear reader have you ever given the subject the consideration you should have given it Perhaps y have not and judging from our lax divorce laws it seems that but very few ifany until recently have given the subject enough con sideration to even raise their voice against the evil practice One of our great daily papers recently secured of some prom ineut ministers of the Gosp regarding divorce and remarri age I think the views of E L Powellwho preaches for the First Christian Church lIt Fourth and Walnut streets Louisville Ky ns expressed are more to the point than any of those who expressed themselves on the subject and for the benefit of those who have not read what Mr Powell said on the question I shall ask our editor allow o me the space in his good pa per to quote his letter in full Mr l Powell said uThe marriage relation as a u Christian institution must be viewed in the light of the plain teaching of Jesus If it he only aI civil contract then clearly it comes within the domain of civil law to regulate It would certainly be to the highest interest of the home the maiutainance of the familyif civil law and the teachings of Jesus on the subject were synonymous In Mathew v 3132 we readlIt hath been said whosoever shall put away his wife let him give her a writing of divorcement but I say unto yon whosoever shall put atv Itfprnieationadultery ver mar her that is divorced coaimitteth adultery Certainly language could not be more definite Thea husband is forbidden to put away the wife save for the cause of her fornication The woman thus di vorced commits adultrybymarryng Another man and the new husband is involved in the same guilt Read also Mathew xix 39 and Marks 212 In Luke xviIS there is no ground of divorce alI lowed but evidently this passage must be interpeted in the light the utterances already quoted Jesus Chi ist is to be accepted 4 authority there is only one usI for divorce and that is nets We are not considering here the the question of separation but di vorce which means the privilege of J m IMarriagsaic teaching on the subject an lays down the law of Christian of JimaDseem there is no escape from the of pronouncement Qf Jesus save by Wh breaking authority the For myself I believe that this seem nly severe requirement willi I TWO Queen Crescent ibute SHORTEST

divorced perso may be in marrying again and think that in hundreds of instances the matter is viewed altogether apart from religious teaching there can be no doubt of the atti tude of Jesus He has

contract and as separated from the teach fogs of Christ it looses its sanciti t and becomes contract to be hro en under such conditions as the law permits Jesus or Ceasar this is the que lion why not
