CODAY'S lesson shows that Jo-
seph's experiences, mixed with
faith, worked out for him •
grand charnctcr, wholly obedl
ent to God. Hut by a different process,
Joseph's brethren were exercised by
remorse, and became more sympathet-
ic, more brotherly-kind, more loyal to
their father Jacob. Life's experiences
are Intended, under Divine supervision,
to be corrective and helpful. Confl
dence In God. however, Is necessary as
n hauls for any such blessing
After the fenst In which Joseph had
given IScuJnmln five portions, the breth
ren departed for
home, well pleased
with their experi-
ences. Joseph, how-
ever. desired to
test their sympa-
thy for their father
and tlieir loving In-
terest III Benjinnln.
Therefore he caus-
ed bis silver cup to
be placed in Ben-
jamin's sack of
wheat. After the
brethren had got-
ten fairly started homeward, Joseph
sent servants to demand his cup.
The brethren protested their inno
cence, and declared that If the cup
were found In their possession, they
would willingly become slaves. The
search was made, and the cup found
In great distress the company wended
Its way back to the palace.
Aguln Joseph was austere and re-
proved them, that they might have op-
portunity to abandon Benjamin. Pro
testing Innocence, they declared their
willingness to become Joseph's slaves
But he answered that only the guilty
one — Benjamin — should become his
slave, and that the rest should return
home, and continue to enjoy the favors
of Egypt. Tills proposition he knew
would test them. Flad they the same
bearllessness that they had exhibited
when I hey sold him Into slavery?
Then Judah, who had pledged him
self that Benjamin should return In
safety, made an eloquent appeal, and
entreated that he be accepted as a
slave In Benjamin's stend. He ended
with the question, "How shall I go up
to my father, and the lad be not with
me? lest I see the evil that shall be
fall my father."
The evidence of a change of heart
was satisfactory to Joseph, and Is to 11s
all. Those who love righteousness re-
Joice In righteousness, as those who
love sin rejoice In It. When we per
celvo so marked a change In those
men. we rejoice, not only for their
sakes. but also at the general lesson
furnished. The conviction is borne In
upon us that much of the sin. the
mennness. the cruelty of today may he
attributed to Inherited weaknesses and
Immature experience. We say, "How
great a change would probably be ef-
fected by a broader, deeper knowledge
of ourselves and others:"
And do not life's daily experiences
tend to give us the broadening of sym
pathles, and thus character-develop
ment? Doubtless there are exceptions
to every rule, but It Is our conviction
that a sufficiency of the likeness of
God remains in every member of our
rnce to permit him at times to appre-
ciate the good, the noble, the pure. It
Is because he is surrounded by sin and
selfishness that these godlike senti-
ments are so rarely brought into ex-
Whan Will Men Profit?
Some will say, "Admitting that life's
trials teach men the sinfulness of sin
and the wisdom of righteousness, where
would be the profit of such Instruction
If only the saintly, who walk in .lesus'
footsteps under a covenant of self-snc-
rifice, are to share in the Kingdom?
How will the remainder of the race
profit by their experiences, if death
ends all hope?"
The answer is that we have made a
mistake respecting the teachings of the
Bible. The Scriptures nowhere say that
all hope of salvation ends when we fall
asleep In death. So far as the Church
Is concerned. It Is true that death ends
their probation. But this Is not true
concerning the world. The Church
alone Is now on trial. The world's trial

Ing. His text was: "He maketb wars

• • • He still, and know that I am
God."—Psalm 40:9, 10.
The Pastor declared that no one
could be more averse to war, on gen
eral principles, than himself—that he
was an extremest in his sentiment for
peace. Yet lie could not close bis eyes
to the facts of history—that practically
every blessing litis come to the world
through war. Where would America
be today, had tiierj been no War of In
dependence? Where would the nations
of Europe be today, if they bad not
fought to maintain their national liber
ties? Where would a refusal to fight
land every nation In less than a year?
There is 110 conflict between this
common-sense view and the teachings
of our Master, said Pastor Russell
Our M:ister was not addressing na
tlons. but individuals, when He direct
ed that whoever is smitten on one
cheek should turn the other, and be
non-resistant. Jesus' instructions were
Intended for his followers, who were
to come out from the world, and be
separate—a new nation, a holy people.
Tha Beatitudes Not For Nations.
When Jesus said, "Blessed are the
peacemakers." He was addressing
special class of individuals—those who
would become Ills disciples by a full
renouncement of all earthly interests.
The Hedeemer's declaration respecting
nations was the very reverse of this.
He declared, "Nation shall rise against
nation, and there shall be wars."
"I fear that I shall be misunder
stood," said the Pastor, "but there Is
so much confusion upon the subject
that the truth needs to be stated plain
ly. And 1 know of no place more ap-
propriate for Its statement than In the
capital of the most peace-loving nation
on earth—except China."
War Is not a disease, but merely a
symptom of disease in the body politic,
fio long as the disease continues, war
Is bound to continue. Need I say that
the disease is sin? Sin and war are
Inseparable. There are only two ways
of Inhibiting war:
(1) By converting the nations from a
condition of hardness of heart, selfish
ness, sin, to a condition of righteous-
ness, tenderness of heart, generosity:
(2) By establishing a government not
swayed by sin, to control affairs by
superior strength. This proposition Is
not debatable. Its basic facts are. the
Pastor claimed, as sure as mathemat-
ics. He cited Scriptures corroborating
his position, and showing that sin. self
Ishness. is continually on the warpath,
politically, socially or financially.
The Pastor included In the great
warfare all social, political and finan-
cial disturbances. These are battles In
which the shrewder minds, as a rule,
conquer. Instead of wars ceasing, we
see new conflicts from new quarters.
LABOR, having organized, develops
strength dally. It Is professedly train-
ing for a great conflict, and declares
that Its warfare against oppressors of
every kind is only commencing.
Moreover, for years our great colleges
have been undermining faith in the in-
spiration of the Bibie, and their influ-
ence has extended finally to the masses
These are now declaring their doubts
respecting a future life, and their de-
termination to grasp at the earliest
