The Danger of Falling Into Soft & Effeminate Christianity

Horatius Bonar, 1808-1889

There is some danger of falling into a soft and effeminate Christianity, under the plea of a lofty and ethereal (very weak) theology. Christianity was born for endurance; not an exotic, but a hardy plant, braced by the keen wind; not languid, nor childish, nor cowardly. It walks with strong step and erect frame; it is kindly, but firm; it is gentle, but honest; it is calm, but not facile; obliging, but not imbecile; decided, but not churlish. It does not fear to speak the stern word of condemnation against error, nor to raise its voice against surrounding evils, under the pretext it is not of this world; it does not shrink from giving honest reproof, lest it come under the charge of displaying an unchristian spirit. It calls sin sin, in whomsoever it is found, and would rather risk the accusation of being actuated by a bad spirit than not discharge an explicit duty. Let us not misjudge strong words used in honest controversy. Out of the heat a viper may come forth; but we shake it off and feel no harm. The religion of both Old and New Testaments is marked by fervent testimonies against evil. To speak smooth things in such a case may be sentimentalism, but it is not Christianity. It is a betrayal of truth and righteousness. ... I know that charity covers a multitude of sins; but it does not call evil good, because a good man has done it; it does not excuse inconsistencies, because the inconsistent brother has a high name and a fervent spirit; crookedness and worldliness are still crookedness and worldliness, though exhibited in one who seems to have reached no common height of attainment.

Points to Ponder --  Nothing is politically right which is morally wrong -- Daniel O’Connell (1775-1847)

A Challenge to Young Men and Young Women -- GO AFTER SOULS!!!

J. B. Chapman

Proverbs 11:30
b ...He that winneth souls is wise.

Young man, young woman, make the most of your life. Go after souls. Go after them the best way you know, but go after them. Do not listen to those who warn you that you will offend and drive away your persistence. Go after souls. Go after them by public and private testimony. Go after them by service and by prayer. But go after them. Go after them with love and a burdened heart. Go after them by kind deeds. Go after them by song and praise. Go after them when they are bereaved and in sorrow. Go after them when they are especially favored of God and men. But go after them. The soul-winning life is your life--make the most of it.


Every now and then I read something that jumps out at me and really gets my attention. As I was paging through a Christian magazine nearly a half-century old I came across this saying by Thomas Guthrie -- "If you find yourself loving any pleasure better than your prayers, any book better than the Bible, any house better than the house of God, any table better than the Lord’s table, any person better than Christ, or any indulgence better than the hope of Heaven -- take alarm."

 God & Country

If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity. (Daniel Webster (1782-1852) was one of our nations greatest orators as well as a diplomat. He served as a U.S. Congressman, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State under three different Presidents)

Without Christ...having no hope, and without God in the world. Ephesians 2:12


He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life. John 3:36

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. Hebrews 9:27


...to die is gain...to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better. Philippians 1:21, 23


And these shall go away into everlasting punishment. Matthew 25:46


Called...unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus. 1 Peter 5:10

John 3:18&36 He that believeth on him (Christ) is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
