it is replete with moral and spirit

It is an exposition of the heart

ADAMS SIN PUNISHED
Genesis 3 Jan. 19.
"Every ont that cvnmlltelh tin U the bond-
tenant of tin. John S.J.
H DAM'S first sin brought tho
penalty specified In this les
son. The Itlble proposition Is
that God. baring made Adam
perfect, required perfect obedience as
the condition of everlasting life. One
act of disobedience broke the covenant
between God and Adam. (Hosea 0:7.
Margin.) Immediately he dropped from
fuvor, under the sentence, "Dying,
thou shalt die." Nothing that Adam or
his children could do subsequently could
recover covenant relationship with God.
The death penalty was the limit
By the law of heredity, Adam trans
mitted to his race a share of what he
possessed, good and bad. As Adam
could not Increase bis penalty, neither
can bis children. But as Adam could,
by obedience to the Divine Law. pro
long the process of his dying, so may
his children. But the impairment
wrought by sin has so progressed that
many of Adam's children die in In
fancy; and few maintain the struggle
for existence for a hundred years.
Death the Curse Not Torture.
Our forefathers during the Dark Ages
misunderstood the Heavenly Father's
character and Plan. Misunderstanding
the Bible to teach that God arranged
for the eternal torture of all except the
Church, they sought to copy their mis
conception of Je
hovah by torturing
God's people have
getting back to
the teaching of
His Word, the
of the past are no
But many have
much yet to learn The terptnt spokt by
true teaching of the Bible.
The curse which God pronounced
against our race Is not eternal torment
at the hands of devils; but as the Apos
tle says. "The wages of sin Is death."
The remedy Is a resurrection, secured
through the Redeemer's death at Cal
vary. "Tho gift of God Is eternal life,
through Jesus Christ our Lord." All
experience the death penalty. All will
have opportunity sometime of regain
ing everlasting life through Messiah's
redemptive work and His Kingdom.
For a Little Flock, who In this Age
have obeyed the Master's Voice. God
has provided glorious things, far su
perior to anything that Adam lost. To
those who walk In Jesus' footsteps.
God promises a share with the Master
iu Ills glorious Kingdom.
The Lesson of This Study.
If our Christian forefathers could
properly have appreciated today's les
son, they would have known what the
Bible teaches respecting the "wages of
sin." and have seen how seriously pub
lie thought had drifted away fioiu the
Dlviue testimony, to "doctrines of de
mons." How distinctly God foie warn
ed our first parents that eating the for
bidden fruit would bring upon them
the death penalty! After they had dls
obeyed, God drove them out of Kden
that the penalty pronounced against
them might be accomplished. Had
they continued in Eden, eating of its
llfe-sustalnlng fruits, they would have
Why Evil Wai Permitted.
God foreknew the fall of man. before
the foundation of the world, and pro
vided the Lamb of God to take away
the sin of the world. God had a glo

mission of sin. which the majority but
faintly discerned until lately. Jesus

tablishment of His Kingdom His

Could It be that God wished to keep

had forbidden their eatlug of the fruit!
Such disloyal thoughts should have
been promptly spurned. But the insld
lous poison worked. Sho was not de
ceived as respects the wrongdoing, but

serpent was not poisoned by the fruit

WHEN FACING DEATH.
Pain or Fright, It Would Appear, la

who has been at some, pains to collect
data on the subject asserts that few
persons about to die have really any
fear of dissolution. There Is cited the
case of the African explorer who was
partially devoured by a lion. He de
clared that he felt no pain or fear and
that bis only sensation was one of In
tense curiosity as to what portion of
his body the lion would take next
