CHRISTIA FAITH IS SHOW BY A CHRISTIA LIFE.BY SAM JOESWe invite jour attention to the 17th verse of the 7thchapter of the gospel of St. John :If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether itbe of God, or whether I speak of myself.We will read three of the preceding verses.ow about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, andtaught.And the Jews marveled, saying, how knoweth this man letters, havingnever learned ?Jesus answered them, and said : My doctrine is not mine but his thaisent me.If any man will do his will — That is if any man will do God's will, — he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether 1speak of myself.ACIET DOUBTERS.At the time Jesus uttered these words he was surroundedby the sharp calculating Sadducees, and the shrewd, cun-ning Pharisees, and the probing dissecting minds of thelawyers of his day. They were doubting ; they werehating ; they were despising ; they were wondering. It isnatural for man to doubt ; it is very common for man todespise ; and very frequently we are made to wonder atsome things. It is as natural for a man to doubt as it is forhim to live a sinner, and I suppose some of you find thatvery natural! (Laughter.) A great many think, "Well,
 
I am a sinner, because I am an infidel ; " but you are aninfidel because you are a sinner. You have got the thingreversed. A man does not sin because he doubts, but he4oubts because he sin*The Vision of the Cross.CHRISTIA FAITH. 65 1I believe the quickest, clearest, grandest conversion Godhad under his own immediate ministry was the case of athaniel. When athaniel came up into the presence of Christ, he dropped his finger on him and said :Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile.And the doors of athaniels heart flew wide open andhe said " My Lord and my God." The quickest, clearest,grandest conversion of his ministry was the case of a-thaniel. He was without guile, and a heart without guilealways opens itself when Christ is near aboutDOUBT THE CHILD OF 8ECT.We sin, and doubt because we sin. I said once beforeyou never had a sin in your life but what, if you would takehold ©f it and pull it up by the roots you would find therewas a seed at the bottom of the tap root, and the name of that seed is Sin. And if you will quit sinning yon willquit doubting just as natural as possible.ow, these scribes and Pharisees and lawyers stoodaround Christ, all probing, all despising, all wondering andall hypocrites. The Bible has a good deal to say abouthypocrisy and about hypocrites, but nine tenths of all the
 
hypocrites I ever saw were out of the church. They donot belong to the church at all. When a man out there sayshe is as good as anybody, if he could get anybody tobelieve him, he would be a first-class hypocrite, but his un-reliability saves him from the charge of hypocrisy. obodybelieves him and therefore he passes for what he is worth.If that man out there could create the impression that hehad done as much good as anybody he would be a first-classhypocrite. His failure to make the impression saves himfrom the charge of being a hypocrite.65 2 SAM JOES* SERMOS.DEFIIG HYPOCRISY.Do yon know what a hypocrite is? A hypocrite is aman that don't do right, but wants to make people believehe is doing right, and who don't want to do right. Ittakes all these elements to make a hypocrite. ow howmany hypocrites do you know in the churches of this townthat do not do right, who want to make people believethey do right, and who don't want to do right? Howmany hypocrites have you in the churches of this townaccording to that rule ? And it is not so much what youlook at as it is what sort of a fellow is looking at you.There is a good deal in that. There stood a dozen roundthere looking at Christ, and Christ dropped his finger onthem and said, " Whom say you — you, you and you — that Iam ? " And they said, " You are an impostor, and you area blasphemer, and you are the son of — a harlot." AndJesus looked over to Peter, who was standing there, andsaid, " Peter, whom say ye I am ? " I wish I could haveseen Peter about that time. Just lifting his face up, hesaid : " Thou art the Christ, the son of the living Grod."Peter was a man just like the rest of them, but Peter hadgot into a secret they did not know much about.We say a man doubts only as he sins, and that he will
