DR MACGREGOR’S SERMON.

TO THE EDITOB. Sir,— Why should “Scripture Reader” object to an expression simply because it is not found in Scripture, if tho thing it expresses is found there? And what if the “eternal nonsense” bo found in the sneer, and not in the thing sneered at? Let me commend to the attention of “ Scripture Reader” the following passages, among many to the same effect, which read much the same in both the authorised and the revised versions, and are here quoted from the latter:— In tbe beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was G'od. . ,* . And the Word became fl sh, and dwelt among ns (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth,—St, John i, 1 and 14, Jesus said unto them: Verily, verily I say unto you, bifore Abraham was I am.—St. John vili., 59, And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifested in the flesh, justified in tho Spirit, seen of angels, preached among tbe nations, believed on in the world, received up in glory.—lst 1 im,, iii,, 16. —I am, etc., Another Scripture Reader. Dunedin, July 9.
