newspaper man, "Why Are Sermons

plied replied to the newspaper man as follows :
I want to speak tonight in answer to
a question a- newspaper man recently
asked, "Why Are Sermons Generally
Dull?' Candidly I do not think that this
question underrates the ministry. The
most attentive and regular churchgoers
do not fall behind this man of the world
in speaking freely of the dullness, the
sameness and the inconsequence of the
average sermon. A preacher of any but
the highest powers who ventures to de detain
tain detain his hearers beyond half an hour s
regarded as a sort of social criminal.
The impatience of preaching may well
demand the attention of the public press.
Of course some people come to church
for nothing and go away with nothing,
and the nothingness is their own. Their
own dull souls make the preachers prose.
A Beeclier would be dull to a dull soul.
Eyes kept long in the dark go blind, and
long disuse of the soul's power to think
of divine things throws it down to death.
But still the fact remains that sermons
as sermons go are dull many preachers
are like the Irish sportsman who aimed
at nothing and hit it every time. Good
old Andrew Fuller once exclaimed, ' Oh,
the holiness of their living and the pain pain-fulness
fulness pain-fulness of their preaching I"
We have to preach too much. Garrick
and Foote agreed that Whitefield's ora oratory
tory oratory "was not at its height until he had
repeated a discourse 40 times. In a re revised
vised revised sermon there should be a pleasuro
much the same as that received from an
excellent piece of music. Our congrega
tions now demand 01 us two sermons
each Sabbath, a midweek lecture and
other addresses as occasion may do do-111:111
111:111 do-111:111 d. Our congregations demand too
much in the way of pastoral visitation.
A sermon need not bo great, eloquent,
magnificent. But instead of glittering
generalities and pious platitudes put
something in the sermon to glow,
brighten", convince, subdue "thoughts
that breathe and words that burn."
The- themes which cluster around the
pulpit are the grandest the human mind
can contemplate and may well inspire
the loftiest efforts of genuine eloquence.
Sermons are generally dull because
people very often, do not know what the
preacher is talking about. Our Lord's
discourses are wonderfully plain. They
should bo our models of style. A learned
teacher published a commentary 011
Matthew. The text was printed in large
type and his notes upon it in small. He
presented a copy to an uneducated wom woman
an woman in his congregation. Some time aft afterward
erward afterward he asked her how she liked his
book. "Indeed," she answered, "doc "doctor,
tor, "doctor, I am sure it is all good, but some somehow
how somehow or other the fine print is not so
plain to my mind as the coarse print on
the top of the pages. I can understand
Matthew very well, but I can't get any
meaning out of your comments. ' Are
not a good many sermons like thac?
The people are tired of sot terms and
theological phrases. Instead of telling a
Christian congregation every Sunday to
believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, thus
telling them to do what they are already
doing, let the gospel be applied practical practically
ly practically to society and the affairs of men. Let
us have ministers of the present and
not mere mouthpieces of the past
voices and not simply echoes. The great
need of the pulpit today is that broad
conception of a mission which is in involved
volved involved in the petition of the Lord's
Prayer, "Thy kingdom come. If the
popular notion that religion concerns the
relation in which the soul stands to God
is the only true idea, then much of
Christ's life and teaching was not re religious,
ligious, religious, and the final judgment will not
be a religious court. Christ's life was
as much secular as sacred, and he came
to the sacred through the secular. The
gospel of Christ comprehends not only
the salvation of the soul, but the estab establishment

The work of the church should be as f ar ar-roaching
roaching ar-roaching as human activity. We are not
only to fit men to do the will of God in
heaven, but hasten the answer to the
Lord's Prayer, "Thy will be done on
eartli as it is in heaven." And, if the
preachers had always in their sermons
grasped Christ's idea of the kingdom
and recognized its relations to the world,
the world's history would read different differently.
ly. differently. Tho church ought always to have
been the first to right tho world's
wrongs, but with a narrow conception
of her mission she has sat with hands in
her lap while other great organizations
have done the work, and although these
organizations drew their inspiration
largely from church members, yet the
success of these reform movements
and benevolent enterprises are not
the churches success. Christianity, is
broader than the church because the
church has separated herself from the
spirit of Christ. Make Christ not mere merely
