15Leaving the seed of Truth to its own vitality, it propa- gates: the tares cannot hinder it. Our Master said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall
18not pass away;" and Jesus' faith in Truth must not ex- ceed that of Christian Scientists who prove its power to be immortal.
21The Christianity that is merely of sects, the pulpit, and fashionable society, is brief; but the Word of God abideth. Plato was a pagan; but no greater difference existed be-
