REVIVAL AT THE
CHRISTIAN CHURCH.

“The two faces of God” was th
theme of an able and impressive dis
course at the Christian church last
night. Mr. Cline plainly showed from
the Bible that God looks with favor
upon those who do good, but his face
is against evil doers. The question
box continues to be an interesting
feature of the meeting. A question
was in last night asking Dr. Cline if
he would consent to discuss publicly
in debate the question of difference
between the Christian church and
that of any other church. He readily
consented. Tonight he speaks on
“The certainties of religion. ”
