FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[Henry Van Dyke in Continent.]

The kingdom of Christ is not helped, but hindered, by a multitude of hair-splitting creeds, exclusive claims, and ecclesiastical rivalries. Christians who hope to meet in heaven shut each other out from their communions and their pulpits on earth. They plant four or five poor little churches of various kinds in a town where a single good one of any kind would do better work. They count conversions and additions from each other as if they represented real gains from the world. The resources of Christianity are wasted, its modes of efficiency are hampered, its clarity and simplicity are obscured, its honor and power in the world are diminished, by "the unhappy divisions among Christians."
