REV MR NORTH.
' TO THE SU-TOft. • Sib, — In a letter whioh appeared in your Issue of tbe 22ad Inst, reference^ are made 1 to myself which require a word from me. I have simply to Bay that the oi_. ement I that " Mr T. Spurgeon and I are diameI trioally opposed in doctrine," is diametric 1 ( oally opposed to truth : the attempt to support the statement by a quotation from ' a letter of mine to tbe "Evening Scar," Is absurd or worse. No sensible person can ' fall to see that it is an unworthy thing to extraot from one of the Rev 0. H. (not T. ' Spargeon'a very early sermona a certain passage relating to eternal doom, and republish lt as though it fitly represented ; the orthodox position, or the present position of its author, in relation to that tremehdons sob j act. Tho laok of fairness manifest in euoa aae of thia particular passage ba& been pointed out to the offenders before*, and they, nevertheless, repeat the cff.mca. Icaunot think tbat your correspondent understands the moral gravity of the charges be makoa— if he did he would surely have the courage and honesty to discard dlaguisa, and endorse them with his name 1 I came to your town because I sympathise with the Baptist Church and Its pastor (Mc SawleJ In their past difficulties and present position, and to render them service. Yours faithfully, Alfbep North. Dunedin, 25th April, 1889 1 [We have olosed this correspondence on the general question of the views held by Rev. Mr Brown and his dlsoipleß, but think fairness to Mr . North demands that we Bhall give insortlon to the foregoing. We, should, however, deollne any further letters on the subject —En ]
