I "Tat Sporty Devil" was the subject

"Lovers of pleasure more than lovers
of God." The sermon, which is one
j of five on the "Five Devils of Ogden,"
I follows:
What is the Sporty Devil? Why that
spirit of unscrupulous pleasure seek

true And so we recognize that we
owe to childhood and youth opportun
ities for recreation And een ma
turity needs its relaxations. Yes, God
would have us happy, for at "Hi3 right

and the prophet saw the Btrots of
the city of redemption was to be "full
I of children playing in the streets

But God's good angel of cheer does
not lead us to disaster. Rut rather
I he leads us into the house of God
with praise and unto his law with
blessing, and breathes into our hearts
II the blithesome cheer of life and lights
I our faces with eternal cheer, that goes

sorrow, and leads us on the highway

A Fallen Angel.
But when this spirit began to vaunt
1 Itself above God, and tried to be the
first thing in life, to be the law of
life, regardless of right, the law of
I God or of nature, in short to set It-
Belf up as the God of Fun, then It fell
I like Lucifer into degradation and sin.
So do all those who are "lovers of
pleasure more than lovers of God "

When he reads, it is merelj the

This Sporty Devil takes all kinds

loudly laughs and says. Who's
afraid?" With a coffin nail between

" Under the glare of the red lights
you call to him to beware of disease,
bondage, blackmail. depravity and
shame and he scoffs bark. "Do you
take mc for a ninny, tied to my moth

bogy- man?" On the broad way of
evil, you warn him of God's Judgments
and he defiantly cries. "I would like

And bo this reckless devil, when he
sees God wave the red light of dan

tie of life still farther open and
laughs at his speed as he crashes in
to wreckage Though he sees the
bridge open, thii Jov rider puts on no
brakes, hut goes plunging into tho
