When, in our issue of November last, mentioning the work of the Salvation Army for the relief of the poor and degraded classes of Great Britain, we called it a "humanitarian scheme," we had no thought of charging them with denying our Redeemer's character, nature, or work. On the contrary, we were commending their philanthropic work for the poor, and should better have used the word philanthropic, as a few misunderstood our expression. On the contrary, we believe that few Christians with the same degree of knowledge revere our Master more.
