_Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage_.–GAL. v. i.
I believed, and therefore have I spoken.–2 COR. iv. 13.

They are slaves who fear to speak For the fallen and the weak; They are slaves who will not choose Hatred, scoffing, and abuse, Rather than in silence shrink From the truth they needs must think; They are slaves who dare not be In the right with two or three.
J. R. LOWELL.
The real corrupters of society may be, not the corrupt, but those who have held back the righteous leaven, the salt that has lost its savor, the innocent who have not even the moral courage to show what they think of the effrontery of impurity,–the serious, who yet timidly succumb before some loud-voiced scoffer,–the heart trembling all over with religious sensibilities that yet suffers itself through false shame to be beaten down into outward and practical acquiescence by some rude and worldly nature.
J. H. THOM.
