LETTER TO EDITOR
I WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
Editor Day Book: What's it all
about anyhow, this praying, war, God
and so on? Isn't man people the
human being as an individual free,
free to go either to heaven or to hell?
Doesn't the scriptures say something
to this effect: There you are, you
have the best of everything, now, for
the length of six days (a day with
the Lord being as a thousand years
and a thousand years as one day).
I won't interfere with you one way
or the other. Here's the rules and
regulations, go by them and all is
well, step aside and things with you
will go from bad to worse. That's
about it in a nutshell.
We have neglected our duty to our
selves in thought, word and deed,
neglected God's rules, neglected God
and thus become lost in our esteem.
HE declared the end from the be
ginning, afterward He said: I have
shortened those days or no flesh (not
spirit or soul) but spirit, soul and
body, would be saved, the sixth day of
a thousand years shortened an hour,
or about eighty-four years, which,
according to the Bible, astrology
and what not comes within the vi
cinity of about ten years, perhaps
shorter, perhaps a year or two long
er after which time there will be a
complete change in the world, that is,
in the ways and methods of the peo
ple living on this earth. Then, after
close on six thousand years, they find
that "Life, Love, Health and Hap
piness come through obeying God's
laws, Nature's laws, call it under
whatever name comes first, say by
paying attention to each individuals
hygienic laws, dietetic laws, breath
ing, ventilation, or the simple life,
whereas by wanting too much luxury,
abuse o'f the life essence, the pro-
creative principle, eating and drink
ing all kinds pf stuff, has what? Led
to the ruination of the human, race,
transmitted from parents to children,
and like a snowball going downhill,
gathering as it goes; till" we find man
doiner his - utmost - to "eet the best
of the other man,"' idiots, asylums
overcrowded, jails full and minions
free that mfeht well' be in Jail if the
jails were more plentiful and larger.
But why continue, wnat is required
is, for each and every one of us to
get knowledge, analyze our short
comings, regulate our food, drink,
cleanliness of the body inside and
out, then we see things in a better
light, fwe understand our place on
this earth and our relation to the
planetary system, we come to KNOW
GOD. But what's the use; for the
next few years anyhow, people, gen
erally speaking, will continue to
travel the "Royal Road to-HelL"
Mizpath.
