Budget Containing the Status of Methodism at the Second Ecumenical Conference of Methodism
			
 116               STATUS OF  METHODISM AND CHRISTIANITY.

      These two nations are to lead the moral and religious  forces, to
sustain and protect the representatives  of Christianity. Methodism
has had some of her greatest triumphs while protected by the English
Lion on the one side and the American  Eagle on the other.

      It is acknowedged by all thinking people that the three greatest
emblems of power are: the English Lion, the American Eagle and
the Cross of Calvary.

      When our missionaries go to their fields of labor, they are received
hospitably when it is known that they are guarded by the Eagle on the
right and on the left by the Lion, while the Union Jack and the Star
Spangled Banner  form a canopy of protection, as well as of glory,
while the presence of the spirit of the Nazarine  is within.

     What may we not expect  in the future ?    With an open Bible
and a living minis ry, schools, colleges, seminaries open day and night
to the rich and poor, black  and  white of any  nation, kindred  and
tongue, with learned professors to instruct them in their duty to self.
family, neighbor and God.   With postal systems, telegraph, telephone,
all waiting the bidding of the Most High, facilitating communication
between man and man and nation and nation. With all these subsi-
dized by the Itinerant, his power has been multiplied a thousand fold,
and we may expect the harvest or the results of the labors of the com-
ing centuries to be increased accordingly, providing the children  are
as industrious and consecrated as their fathers.

     We may expect the generations coming to bear the Banner of
Methodism to greater heights than ever thought of by their fathers.
For as we see it now, Methodism is to lead the hosts of the Lord in its
conflict with the world, the flesh and the devil.  It is the only organ-
ization that demands an unconditional surrender of all who  enter the
church.   It has done more in the past to proclaim the  principles of
liberty, justice and equality to all men than any other body of Chris-
tiansin the land, and the future conflict will be to give the world in
practice what we now have in theory--the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of Man.
