THE TIMES WE LIVE IN.
The present is a momentous crisis. All sects are shaking. The religious world is convulsed. Atheism has opened her batteries, and unsheathed her sword. Skepticism is big with hopes. Catholic and Protestant Popery are plodding and plotting for the supremacy. The little and the great Popes are on tiptoe. Saints are praying for the millennium; myriads are laboring for its introduction. The Bible and the creeds are at war. There is no truce. Such is the present.--Christian Baptist.
