Our Country's Sin free pdf Excerpt from Our Country's Sin: A Sermon Preached to the Members and Families of the Nestorian Mission at Oroomiah, Persia, July 3, 1853 As if this were the end of all strife on the subject - paramount to argument - ignoring fact - and even setting aside miracles. And we marvel at the noble independence of the high-minded Nicodemus, who rose so far above the servility of his age, and the tyranny of his sect, as to interpose for poor suffering common honesty and common sense, in this connection. "Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them, ) [that is, one of the Pharisees, ] Doth our law judge any man before it hear him, and know what he doeth? They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search and look- for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet." Fortunately for the world, there have always been here and there individuals, who have stood out as exceptions in the dominant ones of their sect and their time, rising above the power of human influence, and asserting the higher claims of truth and right, in spite of the frowns and rebukes of rank and station. Honored be the name of Nicodemus for daring thus to interpose, though the influence of his sect was so overpowering that he must needs go to Jesus by night, for fear of the Jews. 2. It is obvious, to remark further, that the sway of influence may be as blind as it is powerful. In the instance we are contemplating, on what ground did the influence rest? Simply on the ringing and reiteration of names and titles. "Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?" In fact, the power of its sway is often much in proportion to its blindness. How long in that case, and, we may say, in most similar cases, would it have stood before the light of careful and candid examination? Even the single pertinent inquiry of the independent Nicodemus, "Doth the law judge any man before it hear him?" etc., seems to have impressed his gainsayers with such a consciousness of the weakness of their power, so far as argument is concerned, that it soon silenced them- for it is forthwith recorded of them, that "every man went unto his own house." 3. It is further obvious to remark, in view of the case we are contemplating, that the sway of influence may be as tyrannical as it is blind and powerful. What could have been more overbearing, despotic, vindictive, than the language of those Pharisees, to the officers who had honestly forborne to arrest the Saviour! "Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees, believed on him?" Just as if they, and their sect had the right to arrogate to themselves the province of thought and opinion, and deprive all others of that high prerogative, given by God to every human being!
