The Unitaid Vast or.
The pastor, of A men, should
pay his debts. This he will do, it
he can. If he can, and will not,
he has no pbce in the ministry.
From an observation' of many
years, during which time we have
mingled much with Baptist preach preachers,
ers, preachers, we have tound the case of the
pastor who will not pay his debts
an exception and a very rare .one.
And there has generally been an
excuse for his remissness. That
excuse usually is that he has not
been paid for his services as pas pastor.
tor. pastor. In ninety-nine cases out of a
hundred the paster goes in debt
relying upon the honesty of his
church members to pay him the
salary promised him. When they
fail to do so, he is a pitiable object
indeed. Hs hands are tied. He
is unable, henceforth, to preach
upon that virtue nd its kindred
virtues which should be considered
among those which constitute a
real Christian life. No man, there therefore,
fore, therefore, who is dishonest, is capable
cf being a true preacher of the
gospel. His obligations are as
binding upon him as those of other
men are upon them. The fact that
he has given up his life for others
is not a proper excuse for non nonpayment
payment nonpayment of any debt contracted.
"No sort of sentiment can obliterate
his plain duty in the premises.
In view of these things, what
shall be said of those churches
which repudiate, annually, from
one-fourth to one-third of what
they promise the pastor? Only
one thing cai be said of them
ibev are dishonest. In the sight
of God, they are as criminal as if
they were the concocters of some
other sort ot stealing. This is true

Some people, who repudiate their
pledgts to the pastor, have never
gotten out of their minds the con conception

the pastor is a sort of mendicant.
The truth is, God has placed him
far above them, and their responsi responsibility

more of a mendicant than God is.
For He requires that His represen

whom he ministers in spiritual
things. Withal, we do riot know
but that the Presbyterians have a
good Jaw which covers th'is point,
it is to the effect that no cnurch
can install a newuastor until it has
settled in fu l witu tne retiring one.
True, our method of church gov government

there should be an unwritten law
smong the preachers which covers
this ground. Every one would
reap benefit from such a course on
their part. For what may an in
coming pastor expect, in regard to
his own salary, from church
which owes the outgoing one?
And besides, it such a custom were
in vogue among the preachers the
churches would be forced to a
higher ideal ot honest.
Under the present regime, the
unpaid pastor will still be with us.
It ns not out of place, therefore, to
say that it behooves the pastor,

he has now, nor contract debts de dependent

preacher must give and he must
abo live. Nevertheless, the rule is
a good one. It should be the habit
of every one to pay as he goes.
And to no one does this apply
with more' certainty than to the
pastor. He should also live within
his means and lay aside a little
every month for the rainy day.
We know some preachers on
meager salaries who do this. They
nre uneasy if a debt is left unpaid
