The Rev. J. T. Pinfold, 8.D., speaking on ‘Christian Citizenship’ at the Boslyn Methodist Church- last evening, took lor his text Peter 1. ii.„ 17. In referring to the love of brotherhood, he called attention to the revival in modern Germany of the pagan teachings of Nietzche, to whom tho teaching of Jesus Christ was pure weakness. His watchword was “Bo hard.” He was a hater of democracy and of popular rights. The peril of his teaching lay in its undisguised selfishness. “ War with your fellow ” was its symbol. If the present war conquered this form of militarism it would be justified before tho bar of history. The inspiration that united tho Empire to-day was derived from the teaching of Christ and His ideal of trim service in tire brotherhood of man.
