By Church reporter PARABLES OF OUR LORD The Prodigal in “A Far Country” By Dr. A. G. Bearer Text: The younger son gather ed all together and took his jour ney into a far country. —Luke 15:13. The father in the parable rep resents God. The foolish prodigal is wayward, sinful man. The far country is the sinful state of God’s foolish human son.. As the prodigal was born in the house of his father, so man was “made up right,” and was near to and in harmony with God. As the result of original sin and moral deprav ity, every natural man is found in the “far country”—away from God. 1 n the “far country”, influence of evil associates was detrimental and degrading. False friends and selfish advisors constituted a problem of serious proportions. And the entire situation was an imminent menace toall of his most vital interest?. So, all of these difficulties and and more and worse tran beset the man in the “far coun* try” of sin—and away from God. But, after all, the prodigal’s “far country’ was not very far. He could walk home, despite his 'weakened and emaciated condi tion. So it is true that the “far country” of sin is not far from the kingdom of God, man’s heav on!y Father. It abuts the Lord’s domain, so that one has only to step “oer the line.” It is so near, that, the Father con see and hear what is done and said there. Too, the prodigal can hear the voice of hi* Father calling him to como home. But, destruction will be the portion of all who remain in the “far country” of ain, and die there, Continued on page 5 V*' , World’s Wonder Medicine Cos., Inc. a The Richest man in the world with poor health is the Poorest man in the world.
