FROM OUR EXCHANCES

[The Living Church.]

Many an accusation but voices for the accused his highest commendation. It was so, almost invariably, of the charges hurled in malediction by the enemies of our Lord Jesus Christ. Full often it is equally notable in the condemnation of his representatives. Eminently was that a glowing tribute which, in the earliest stages of their warfare, stirred the wonder while kindling the enmity of the populace of Thessalonica against the world bassadors of Christ,—"These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also." Fuller recognition could not have been accorded any propaganda of truth or teaching, nor stronger endorsement its promulgators ... Little did the accusers discern that they were merely proclaiming the very mission and purpose of these adherents of one who had openly declared his warfare as judgment of the prince of this world and the subversion of his kingdom; to cast down and trample under foot much that was then uppermost, their unfaltering aim and struggle. In no wise has that mission, or its purpose, altered; and to-day, true servants of Jesus Christ are still faithfully seeking and marvelously accomplishing this overthrow, this turning upside down much that was uppermost.
