Nothing in heaven is so Rood that
we, might not have it here. The
Earth is the home of Ood as truly as
it is the home of man. Heaven means
n higher condition of mankind. There
is no heaven until w,j rise out of
folly, selfishness and sensuality no
heaven so long as any are willing to
be rich by keeping others poor.
