DOUBTING. D. W. C. Huntington, D. D., LL. D.''And when they saiv Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted" — Matt xxviii, 17. The appearances of our Lord to His disciples after His resurrection were generally unannounced and unexpected. The one alluded to in the text is an exception. The place, and proximately the time, had been fixed by previous appointment. Prob-ably upwards of five hundred gathered on the "mountain in Galilee." They saw Him; He con-versed with them and the greater part of the number were alive to tell the delightful story when Paul wrote his First Epistle to the Corinthians. Many of the company recognized Him, and pros-trated themselves before Him. A few doubted. It was a great thing to believe, that one whom they knew to have been dead, was alive and speaking to them. It seemed too good to believe. Probably some looked upon Him there for the first time, and

It argued well for the reasonableness of this company that some doubted. They were not credulous; they did not believe merely because others did; they looked the matter up for themselves. As a result their doubts were temporary, and it is to the credit of the writer of this Gospel that he could write the facts in the case, though they seemed to reflect upon those of his own company. Christ is still in the world, worshiped by many, but by some doubted. Christianity has been in the world for a long time. It has made marvelous head-way against great obstacles. The number of those who accept it as of Divine authority has been con-
stantly increasing, and yet there are those who doubt. If the honest doubter could see why he doubts, it might lead him to believe. We will try to give the reasons why some people doubt. I. We begin our beliefs upon almost all subjects by being taught that certain things are true. At first we do not grasp firmly or widely the reasons which support these truths. Quite possibly we could not do it ; it is equally possible that our teachers did 134 Is THE Lord Among Us? not see fit to give us the reasons which were in their own minds, and it is not improbable that reasons which would satisfy us later on, were not possessed by the teachers themselves. This order of recei\dng our beliefs at the first through others in w^hose wis-dom and honesty we have confidence is all right. It arises necessarily out of the incapacity of child-hood. It is the opportunit}' of parent and teacher; it is God's arrangement for the salvation of the child.
