Resents Scolding. Resents Scolding. A church member who does as he likes on Sunday, or any other day, doesn't like the sermons of the preachers about keeping the Lord's day holy. He says if he keeps within the law no preacher need take it on himself to lecture him about what he should do on Sunday. "That day is my own and the Lord's," he says, "and we put it in together.

He is as big a crank in his way as I am in mine. He wants the law to help him keep the people good. If he was on to his job he wouldn't ask any favors of the law--his people would follow him if they thought he was any better than they were, or got any more out of life than they do, but many of them suspect that the average preacher preaches for a living and condemns and opposes Sunday ments to keep his contract with the church. So they pay little attention to what the preacher says. They take part in all worldly affairs and pleasures.

They go to church 'as a mere matter of form. They mildly agree or disagree with what the preacher says--and they do as they like regardless of what the church teaches or the preacher prays for. "In proof of this," says the church member and the non-church goer, "if the ministers are with the sentiment they are all right, if against it they are disregarded and in some instances their views and interference and opposition gets them a hard mauling."
