Opis: The Death of John Brown; A Discourse Preached on the Occasion of His Public Execution, Delivered at the Free Congregational Church, Bloomington, Ill - Ames Charles Gordon

Excerpt from The Death of John Brown; A Discourse Preached on the Occasion of His Public Execution, Delivered at the Free Congregational Church, Bloomington, Ill: Dec, 4, 1859
One is by speaking what ought not to be spoken; the other is by not speaking what ought to be spoken - rashness and cowardice. If a minister falls into the evil current of party spirit, and lends himself to a narrow, fanatical love of agitation, pandering to passion and to a morbid craving for excitement, or to sectarian and party ends - that is a shame! Let him bear the indignation of an injured public. Preacher though he be, he is a pestilent fellow. We have no use for such. The sooner he quits the church and the world, the better for both.
But the pulpit is hardly less disgraced by the minister who betrays his trust through the timid, temporizing policy of withholding the fitting truth because it may be unwelcome to his hearers. He sees the truth, but dares not utter it. He knows the right, but dares not defend it. He will not attack the wrong, because it is still popular. He will not espouse the right, because it is still in a small minority. When it is evident that victory is to turn on Zion's side, you shall find him in the forefront of the battle, a bold leader of the hosts of the elect. But he has not faith enough in God to feel quite safe in taking sides with Him, nor love enough for the true and the right to stand by them in their hour of seeming weakness. He is "a dumb dog," a speaker of smooth things, false to God and man. There are no baser men than those who use holy words to hide an unfaithful and cowardly spirit, and who let all forms of wickedness find an undisturbed refuge in the very folds of the altar cloth.
