FROM OUR EXCHANGES
[Pacific Christian Advocate.]
As one listens to the babble of voices which come up from various churches and the multitude of organizations, all of which are claiming the authority of the gospel for their existence and exploitation, the question cannot be pushed aside: "What is the gospel?" It surely is not organized churches. Many people seem to think that they have accepted the gospel when they have consented to unite themselves with some church, to be baptized after some form and contribute in some measure to the support and maintenance of the institution with which they have allied themselves. Now the church may have, should have, for its object the spread of the gospel, but it is not the gospel. The man may accept the conditions of membership in any of our churches and still have nothing of the gospel, either in his integrity or feelings. The intention of the church is surely the proclamation of the gospel, either by declaration or example or both. It is easy to see how these may be lost sight of in the endeavor to exploit the organization.
