Rev. D. E. Earnhardt, the pas tor. who is doing the preaching, de clare that the possession of wealth is not in Itself un-Christian, but that to make of it an idol is un-Christian and destructive. Today It was announced that the subject for tonight's sermon will be, "Esau Sells Out.” The sermon at the morning service at 9.30 a. m. today »*.< by Rev. R. A. Whitten, pastor of the First Christian church. On Tuesday night the pastor preach ed on "What will it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose hi* own life?" "The Christian religion." he said, "recognizes the importance of business success. Poverty at times has been held up as a Christian ideal. It Is a mistake. God does not want us poor, hut whether poor or rich he does want us to be his. It is wrong for a man to be slothful in business. Every busi ness ought to be profitable and sue ccssful. if that business is the kind that can have God as a partner. "Gaining Ihr whole world menu:; gaining the acclaim of the world. It means listening to the crowds that civ buzannah one day and crucify him the next day. Washington haw been called the city of broken-hearted be cause the men who have gone there depending on their constituency to back them up have come to disap pointment sooner or later. "It means gaining the wealth of the world. It is not wrong to own dirt hut it is wrong to eat it and sleep on It and idolize it. A few round dollar., will not hurt if you use them on the square. But men have mortgaged their poor souls and bodies for trash until It Is the disgrace of the world. "Gaining the world means coming into God’s world at his invitation and enjoying his meal and never one lime lifting your head to acknowledge and thank him. It means riding through his reservation and blowing for him to get out of the way. He is not now getting out of the way and the drivers that persist in running him down arc having to go to the church for re pairs. ‘The life that men h>se in their sel fish ambition tour through this world is physical life, mental life ajid social life and spiritual life. I had rather he buried in the Potter’s Field and go to heaven than to have my body entombed with the great and land my everlasting soul in perdition." At the morning service t«xiay, Rev. Tt. A .Whitten, pastor of the Christian church, preached the sermon. His sub ject was. "Christian indebtedness." He said "We are In debt to the men who are not saved. The necessity of their welfare is laid upon us. God is calling ui» to do exploits. We have many en rolled hut few in active service. Gideon s 300 immortals constituted a stronger army than Gideon's indif ferent 32.000. "In order to pay our debt to the unsaved world, we must be fearless and we must be unselfish. If we are ■cared to do our duty or so selfish aa to fear that we will not get credit for the good that is done, we will neither now nor reap. A fearless and an unselfish man is God's human In strument through which he blesses the world.” It was announced that the subject for the sermon tonight will be.
