DR. HAHN AGAIN ON
THE QUESTION OF THE
CHRISTIAN SABBATH

----------o----------
Dr. R. D. Hahn points out That He
[fold in paper] That is Debtor to the Law in Part
is a Debtor in Whole and That the
Observance of the Mosaic Sabbath
Would Really Bring the Whole Ava-
lanche of the Mosaic Law on Our
Heads.
----------o----------
About two thirds of the present re-
marks by Dr. Haynes is devoted to me
personally, and as I recall that this
[blurry]-side play" has been his habit
[make?] first, and since in my last
article I felt compelled to reply in
kind, it appears to be necessary to
continue to answer him according to
his folly. He claims that my last ar-
ticle was obscure. It may be that I
have given him too much credit for
intelligence. However, I shall see to
it that the reply shall be faithful to
his statements and clear to the pub-
lic. He accuses me of implying that
he is a fabricator. I deny it. I did
not imply it. I only said and proved
it in three separate instances. How
sad it is that simple souls like my-
self are terribly misunderstood.

Majesty a Grace

The extreme modesty of the writer
in his present article, must have com-
manded the attention of the most cur-
sory reader. Modesty in a strong
man is a superlative grace, and this
modesty stands out in the landscape
like Paris mountain. The writer goes
ahead like a fire engine, with sound-
ing bell and screaming siren. He
hunts giants with a trumpet. There
is a structure in Greenville, visible
from every point of the horizon, for-
merly I thought it was a water tower
erected at the public expense, but I
know now that it is the pronoun, I,
built by Dr. Haynes since he arrived
in our city. It is a grand and domi-
nating feature of our civic landscape.

Here is the usual challenge to con-
sider what he has done, and I "frank-
ly acknowledge" that he has done
considerable. Let us review his
achievement with the Scriptures.

Misinformation

His misinformation rivals his know-
ledge. He has told us that the apos-
le James wrote an epistle which ap-
peared years after he was killed by
Herod Agrippa. He has proved that
Moses did not know the ten command-
ments; for the record in Exodus is
verbally different from that in Deu-
teronomy. He has found a dispute
about herbs in Rom. 15:1-6 invented a
faction among Hebrews to correct his-
tory, and identified the Passover as
"undoubtedly" the occasion of the dis-
pute. He has taught that the risen
Christ is not lord of the new covenant,
because his resurrection was "three
days too late" for the establishment of
any ordinance. He has cited Lev. 23,
and omitted verses 1-8 because it in-
cludes among ceremonial feasts the
Sabbath as the first item. He has
taught, in the face of plain
English, that "we observe
days and months and seasons
and years" refers to all months and
years and not all days and deliberate-
ly deducts one seventh from calendar
time to save his contention. He has
declared at one time that Col. 2:17,
"is a feast day (yearly sabbath), new
moon (monthly sabbath), or a sabbath
day'" does not refer to a sabbath day,
seventh day, and then he has ap-
pealed to this same text to prove that
the sabbath was observed at the time.
Which statement are we to believe?
He found an allusion to the sabbath
in Heb. 4:[?], but the subject is the di-
vine rest, "[wich] remaineth for the peo-
ple of God", "and" we who have be-
lived do enter into that rest." He has
read the passage by the ear and not
by the sense. Surely Dr. Haynes has
done remarkable things, but his re-
sources in that line are not exhaust-
ed. He can both interpret and edit
Scriptures. The text "Let no man
judge you in meat or in drink or in
respect of a feast day or a new moon
of a sabbath day" he reforms and
reads, "let no man judge about the
the sabbath," and gravely tells us that
it is a plea for liberality. It is the
kind of liberality which warns all
parties to let the sabbath alone if he
is right.

But this review of Dr. Haynes man-
agement of Scriptures may be some
more of "Dr. Hahn's evasions" and
"flimsy" arguments. Here may be
another. The elaborate attempt he
substitute reaffirmed and restated for
retained, and the assignment to me by
quotation marks of that idea is not
an evasion, perhaps, but then it is
something worse.

The Divine Rest.

But let us examine the passages of
Scripture of this present article.
There can be no doubt that the divine
rest is identified with the Mosiac [Mosaic?] sab-
bath by Dr. Haynes, according to this
reference, Gen. 21:1-3; for we read

[article continues on column 2, bottom section]

tion." In a previous article we were
told that the sabbath commemorated
the divine rest, now it is the same
thing. Again the writer stumbles
over the explanation of the Epistle to
Hebrews (Heb. 8:11-4:11). Sabbath
keeping Israel neither in the desert
nor the promised land could enter into
that rest. Milleniums after, believ-
ers are invited into that rest. How can
the divine rest be a calendar day, the
seventh day of the week? And do be-
liever enter into that rest only once
a week?

It is dangerous to agree with Dr.
Haynes over about the multi-
plication tables; for agreement
is always an "admission," "con-
cession " or acknowledgement,
wrung from the opposition by
the [taldon?] in the interest of truth. Col.
1:13-17; John 1:1-3 do prove that our
Lord is also the Creator, and they
prove that the sabbath is his as well
as his Father's, and he exercised His
authority over the Mosaic sabbath in
heaven and on earth. He gave it, and
he rejected the family curse which it
contained by Jeremiah and Ezekiel
and when on earth did he claim au-
thority over it, "for the son of man is
Lord even of the sabbath." The entire
passage makes the fact more plain,
"And the Pharisees said unto Him
Behold why do they on the sabbath
day that which is not lawful? And
He said unto them, Have ye never
read what David did, when he had
need and was hungry, he and they
that were with him? How he entered
into the house of God when Abiather
was high priest and ate the shew
bread, which is not lawful to eat, save
for the priests and gave also to them
that were with him? And he said un-
to them, the sabbath was made for
man, and not man for the sabbath; so
that the Son of man is Lord even of
the sabbath "Mark 2:24-28. He gave
the commandment that burdens
should not be borne in the sabbath
in Jeremiah (17:12) and [unconditiona-
ally] set aside on earth when he
healed the impotent man at Bethesda
(John 5:8-10). It was his sabbath
and he both claimed and exercised con-
trol of it. These facts show up on what
terms he observed the sabbath. He
bound the sabbath, the sabbath did not
bind him. He observed it as a king or
lord observes his statutes, as subject

[article continues on column 3, middle section]

to be enforcement or reapeal.

Before [Sinia]

That the sabbath "was part of
God's moral law before the law was
given on [Sinia]" is not proved by the
messages refereed to in Ex.16:1-39.
The giving of manna occurred less
than a month before the Israelites
cam to [Sinia], that is not "long". The
command is new to them." And he
(Moses) said unto them, tomorrow
is solemn rest, a holy sabbath unto
Jehovah"; "abide ye, every man in his
place let no man go out of his place
on the seventh day". Furthermore,
the sabbath is not given here as part
of a moral code but as a distinct cere-
monial requirement, which Lev. 23:1-3
asserts is one of "the act feasts" and
which character it cannot lose by in-
incorporating in the ten command-
ments. And there is no evidence that
the rest of the Decalogue. But
Gen. 26:5 is cited to prove that the
Mosiac institutions, the sabbath in-

STRIKE AT JUDSON MILLS
REVIEWED FULLY BY PASTOR.

----------o----------
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE TWO)

I know these mills have employed
help before and after my application.

"My son, who is as good a weaver
as there was in Judson and who was
neither a member of the union nor a
striker, applied at several mills and
was not given work when he stated
he was from Judson. At one mill,
when asked what mill he was from,
he named the last mill at which he
had previously applied for work and
was promised a job. Then he stated
that he was really from Judson and
the job was not given him.

"In The Piedmont of Dec. 3 ap-
peared a statement from President
Geer to the effect that he had sought
work for the strikers at Judson and
had secured places for twelve families
and had discontinued this work be-
cause he had been informed, he
thought reliably, that the strikers did

[article continues on column 4, middle section]

not want work elsewhere than at
Judson Mill, but that four families
had gone to other places.

"On behalf of President J. W.
Smith, secretary J. W. Thomas and
over nine hundred and sixty-eight
people who gave honest work at Jud-
son and are willing to work, I pre-
pared the following questions to
President Geer:

"1. At what mills was work se-
cured?

"2. Who was your reliable in-
formant'?

"3. What four families have moved
to other mills to take jobs secured
for them by you?

"4. At what mills are they work-
ing?

"5. Did they not have to promise
you or officials of the mills to which
they moved that they would not men-
tion the Textile Workers Union to the
help?

"6. Have the presidents of mills
where you secured promise of work
for strikers any more respect for the
union than you have shown at Jud-
son?

"7. If so, why do you seek to
place 'undesirable' workers in other
mills if you do not think them fit to
work in your mill?

"8. Have you obeyed the Golden
Rule in your treatment of those at
your mill who joined the union and
are you obeying it in trying to put off
on other mills workers you yourself
will not employ?

"9. If you have too little confidence
in the strikers to employ them in
your mill, in what language do you
recommend their employment by other
mills?

"10. Will you meet a committee ap-
pointed by the Textile Union, men
who have been church members from
one to thirty years, without any
charge against them in their churches
during those years, and who have
never been intoxicated?

"11. If you will not meet such a
committee, why not?

"I was asked yesterday by Mr.
Smoke Thompson, Governor Man-
nings personal representative in this
effort to settle the trouble at Jud-
son, to present these questions person-
allly to President Greer. I said that he
had made his statement publicly in the

[article continues on column 5, middle section]

paper and I thought the questions
ought to be asked the same way.

"Mr. Thompson said he would go
and ask Mr. Geer if he would see a
committee.

" I told him that there were no such
committee in existence but that I
would go right out to the mill and have
one apponted, but that it could not
get to Mr. Geer's office under two hours.

"We went back and asked Mr. Geer
would he wait till 3 o'clock to give
time for the committee to be ap-
pointed and get to his office.

"At Mr. Thompson's suggestion I
and J. W. Thomas, secretary of the
union who happened to be along, went
up to Mr. Geer's office to ask him to
wait for a committee. This he refused
to do with some profanity, adding
nothing would stop him. I told him
that we would all stop when death
came and that then he would have to
face God as the judge of his con-
duct.

"There are today forty-two families
out of work at Judson, who can only
do mill work, are are denied work
in Judson and cannot get it elsewhere.
There are about 200 people there out
of fuel and with no food except that
given them. What is to become of
them? I have given practically my
all to help feed and warm these poor
people. President Geer and I both
profess to worship the same Savior.
Suppose we grant that those who
joined the union did him an injury,
how can he make the prayer that
Savior taught men and ask of Our Fath-
er in heaven to forgive him his tres-
passess if he is not willing to forgive
those men striving to better their con-
dition what he regards as their tres-
pass against him, and shut his eyes
to the sorrow and suffering of wo-
men who have no bread or warmth
for their little ones when they cry be-
cause of cold and hunger? Does
President Geer's religion only govern
his personal and not his business con-
ditions?"
