WOHLD HAS CHANGED LITTLE
Like Ponce de Leon, People Today
Are Apt to Believe What They
Want to Believe.
Ponce de Leon didn't originate the
idea of a spring of eternal youth. That
was not in his mind when he sailed
for the new world. He sailed with
Columbus upon the latter's second trip
and was appointed governor of Porto
Rico, where he believed gold existed
in nbundanee. While exploring the is
land he met an old savage, who told
ulm timi no't only was there gold to
be found in another country to the
northward, but also there existed in
the loud a spring whose wa te ra
brought >eterhal youth- So the rest

tention to the fact that Ponce de Leon
believed the eternal youth proposition
because be wanted to, remarks a writ
er In the Columbus Dispatch. All of
us. to this good day, do the same
thing. We believe that which we de
sire to believe, whether lt ls good or
bod. We believe the scandals we hear
about others when we want to be
lieve them--and we reject them If we
do not want to believe such things of
the persons connected with the scan
Further, we usually hear that which
we are desirous of bearing. The wily
old savage wanted to get rid of Ponce
de Leon. He knew enough of human
nature and of Spanish nature to be
aware that gold-and youth-would
prove highly interesting to the invader.
That wa? what Ponce de Leon was ex
pecting to bear-especially the story
of gold. But the old savage, to make
the gold story all the stronger and to
lure the Invader from the Island all
tlie more surely, added the eternal
youth proposition to tho story which
the explorer wai expecting to hear?
and thereby was bo successful in rid

Does God Caro?
With the thought of au absentee God
in midd, Mark Twain once said he
wished the Almighty would put on a
hot and coat and tnko a walk through
East London ; he thought If God would
Inform Himself as to the conditions ex
istent there He might do something
towards remedying them.
Others share this view of God and
are confident that He does not Inter
vene in the affairs of men because He
cares nothing about them. For all
such there ls a message lu the petition
Christ taught Hp* disciples, "Deliver
us from evil."
First of oil, Christ recognized tho
reality of evil. He looked upon sick
ness und sorrow und sin UB truly ex
istent, and not only so, He regarded |
them ns evil. He does not mock us by
telling us these things are delusions,
but grapples with them as monsters
which must be overcome.
Again, God is not the author of evil.
AB we look over the fields of the
world's suffering und wickedness we
cannot charge the Lord with having
sown these fields. "An enemy hath
This ls proven by the fact bi ought
out In the text, namely, lt ls God's will
. that the world shall be delivered from
evil. When His name ls hallowed, His
kingdom come, and lils will done on
earth as In heaven, earth will be as
blissful a place as beaven. True, God
uses suffering and sorrow in His prov
idence ; we should be glad that,, so long
as sin is In the world, He allows suf
fering and sorrow to b* here, else

However, when the earth reflects God's,

Why Deliverance Is Delayed.
The question still remains, however,
as to why God does not answer this
prayer nt once and deliver us from
ovil. How cnn He look down from
.heaven and sec the sins and sorrows
of men and'remain Idle? Doubtless
some will be amazed If we answer : Be
cause He ls good ! But we give this
answer and stnnd ready to defend lt.
if God is to deliver the righteous He
must also punish the wicked. On the
other hand, if God continues to be
gracious to the wicked, He must allow
the righteous to suffer for a little sea
son. So that It is really His grace to
ward the ungodly which makes Him
seem Indifferent toward the righteous.
After all, it ls judgment which the
world needs ns a preliminary to Its re
lease from evil, and this will come
when God's patience gives place to
Ihe matter is summed up in II Pe
ter 8:0, 12: "The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise, ns some men
count slackness; but is long-suffering
to Uffward, not willing that any should
perish, but that all should come to re
pentance. But the day of the Lord
will come as n thief in the night ; in
the which the heavens shall pass away
with n great noise and the elements
shall melt with fervent bent, the earth
also and the works that are therein
shall be burned up. Nevertheless we,
according to His promises, look for
new heavens and a new earth, wherein
Me ,nwhile, the Individual who turns
to God . . repentance and trust ls de

the bondage of sin. Alan, that so many
are more concerned about deliverance
from pain and grief than from thc evil
that dwells within them !
We heard recently the testimony of
one who had rendered effective sendee
as a Christian for a quarter of a cen
tury or more. When he was seeking
salvation he dined one day with a com
pany of Christians. During the course
of the meal be remarked that be sup
posed the way to find salvation ls to
pray. Instantly bis host raised a pinto
of bread and said : "My friend, sup
pose you were hungry and I should
offer you this bread. How foolish lt
would be to get down on your knees
and pray me to give you some bread !
Why, there would be nothing to do but
to take nnd eat." So, to nil seeking
deliverance from the evil of sin we
say: "As many ns received Ulm, to
them gave He power to become the
sons of God, oven to them that believe
on Hie mime" (John 1:12).

Egyptian Worship of the Sun.
The Egyptians were, early In theil
history (about 4000 B. C.), attracted
by this flight of the sun. They evolved
their religion on the thesis that life
was given by the sun. It was the beat
that be gave that caused all things to
grow, and be gsve to man warmth and
comfort. So they created the god of
the sun, snd called him Ra-Harachte.
In one of the earliest cities, built on
the east side of the Nile, and a little
to the north of modern Cairo, they
erected his first temple. The city was
called On, later named by the Creeks
Heliopolis, the City of the Sun. Here
the Egyptians established the priest
hood of Ra, a sect that became famous
for its knowledge of the occult
sciences, the practice of magic, and
the laws of medicine and astrology. It
was with them the youthful Moses
was br* ?ghi up, and it was by the
art he had mastered in tho priesthood,
