It GREAT TRUTHS HURLED BY GIPSY SMITH IN SERMON Great as are the works of today of some of our important cities,we have ' not begun in some respects to equal I the workml' the ancients. One of the biggest lies the devil ever gave to the world is this, that every man has his price. You cannot sneer at Almighty God and win out. Did you ever stop to think that you and I are going to be weighed in the same balances that Belshazzar ———————————— was weighed in, and with the same scales and weights? You may be a heavyweight in Hat tiesburg, and a featherweight in the sight of God. You do not have to go out of Hat tiesburg to find heathen. They are here, educated, cultured, refined. That thing that is the center of a man’s life, is his god. Money is a wonderful servant, but a rotten god to worship. There is one thing you can’t take beyond the grave—that is the wealth you have accumulated and worship ped. When God calls, your casket will have no safety deposit vaults, your shroud no pockets. You can be moral, and be guilty of the biggest sin in the world—the rejection of Jesus Christ. I would put a quetsion mark be hind your breeding if you have ne ver said “Thank you” to the Son of God who gave His life for you. „ When you have sunk so low that you can blaspheme in the name of God, you are not a man or woman, you are a thing. The real tets of love is sacrifice.
