FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[The Christian Herald.]

The gospel was given, not for philosophizing and theorizing, however admirable these may be in their own proper places, but to supply a rule of action applicable to all the affairs of human existence. The religion of Jesus is a practical thing, which takes hold of the daily life and comes down to the level of the general need and comprehension. Let us not forget that "the common people heard him gladly." So, our own churches to-day, to meet the modern emergency, must come down to the people. Their true mission is to save not only the individual sinner, but also to save society by improving it, by bringing its component elements into better relationship, by teaching that the doctrines of Jesus—love, justice, generosity, and human brotherhood—were not given to be preserved in books and missals or read once a week gravely in church, but to be lived in the daily life.
