Not illustrated.1901 Excerpt: ... HOW CHRISTIANS GIVE. From "The Opportunity of the Hour," by George S. Eddy. To be read by nine persons. 1. Christians "lay up" annually nearly one hundred times the amount they give to foreign missions, above all their comforts and luxuries. 2. The church as a whole gives less for the evangelization of the world than is expended in idolatrous worship at a single heathen shrine in India--that of the Goddess of Cruelty. 3. The women of America spend far more for artificial flowers or kid gloves than the church does for missions. 4. Many times as much money was puffed away in tobacco smoke by the men of America, in one year, as the church gave in a century to evangelize the world. 5. In one year, when $18,000 was spent for the raising of a crew, $150,000 in connection with a single football game, $70,000 for a banquet, and $600,000 for a wedding, our mission boards were left groaning under heavy debt. 6. Over a thousand churches in each of the twelve leading denominations give nothing for missions. 7. One church spends twenty times as much for its choir as for missions; in another the printed programmes cost more than they give to this great cause; in still another the soprano costs enough to support two missionaries and a hundred native preachers in the field. 8. -The average gift of each church-member to foreign missions is about forty cents a year, or oneninth of a cent a day. Is this the price we place on the redemption of the world? 9. A ten-cent piece will buy a cigar, or, preach the gospel a. whole day through native lips. A dollar will furnish an evening's amusement, or keep a boy in a mission day-school for twelve months. With such possibilities in money, how can we waste even a penny? LEGACIES OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY TO THE TWENTIETH. By Rev. ...
