Evangelist Cites Of Offenders Throughout the ; Ages ’ Throughout, recorded history, the way of the transgressor has been hard, and never has sin paid in tihe long run for any man or woman who has walked therein, declared the evangelist, Riev. H. C. Gavlness, in the union revival meeting last night at the Big Henderson Warehouse. Numerous outstanding wicked per sons whose experiences are related iu the Bible, some, in secular history and others even In iruore modern •times were named by the evangelist x'- bearing- ouit his declarations. It was rated as a strong sermon. Those who have been attending the revival this week have felt that the music by Misses Smith and Logue ~it the miramba, Aeolian harp, violin and piano has been worth attending tne revivla .even if ther ewere no other features about it. They always play inspirational hymns, and last right they sang one num|he<r in. addi tion to the instrumental' work. Severa lwent forward to the inquiry room following the sermion, in addi tion to those who held up tlheir hands for prayer. The evangelist preaching last night at the B|g Henderson Warehouse, said in part; ‘ God never wrote truer texts in His Book than these, ‘The way of trans gressors is hard.’ Prov. 13:15. and, ‘The wages of sin is death.’ Rom. 6:25. Ask ’hose who lived before the Flood, who perished in its raging waters as they leaped past the apex cf Alps and Andes, if transgression aftords a happy ending, and ushers one into eternity in peace. Back romes their answer in the words of the text. ‘And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the earth, both man and cat tie.’ Gen. 7:23. Destructioh was the wages earned by the antedluvian. Noah was saved through an ark, many trees converted into a medium of salvation. This ark typifies Christ Jesus, who was slain on a Tree, that rnen through His atonment might be saved. ‘And when they were come to the place which is rallied Calvary there they crucified Him.* Luke 23:- 32. " «o tne lament of Cain the world’s first criminal. ‘My punish ment is greater than I can bear.’ Gen. 4:13. Adam sinned against God. Cain sinned ihumanjity, in there united conduct we have sin in it’s every form. ‘Cain went out from fee presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod.’ Gen. 4:16. Nod means wandering.’ The ways of the trans gressors are those of wanderers. Note how Christ for man’s sin, took upon Himself the way of a Wanderer. Os trasized scorned, hated and finally murdered. Cain had declared that every man who saw him would slay him. “Ask the citizenry of Sodom and Gomorrah as they are recalled from the scorched cinder piile lying be neath the Dead Sea. ‘Does transgres sion perpetuate a city’s growth and maintain her majesties?’ ‘The Lord lained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from thei Lord out of heaven and overthrew those cities.’ Gen. 19:24. Jerusalem, like most capi tals, was a great sewer into which Kentucky Man Tells Why He Prefers Black-Draught *‘l have tried other medicines, but haven’t found any of them that has given me the satisfaction that I have found in faking Black- Draught,” writes Mr. W.

A city which was to never know conquest by Christ Re read in kev. 18th Chapter of the destruction of a mighty town called. ‘Babylon.’ That everlasting type Q f the corrupted city, and find in the 19th. verse these amazing words, ‘in one hour is she made desolate.’ Three times does God use that word “one hour” to describe the length of time in fhich this great city will be de stroyed.’ So that all the splendor and veneer and varnish of our city Us e will be gone within one hour, just sixty seconds. Man has taken cen turies to erect it, od will take a few moments to destroy it. Why? This Babylon, the magnificance of city life is but a counterfiet of the devil to hide from one’s vision the transcen dent beauties of the New Jerusalem. “Ask Esau if the wages of sin is death? ‘When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry.’ Gen. 27:- 34. His cry of bitterness is the answer when one asks if it pays to sell spiri-' tual things for a ‘mess of pottage.’ The most terrible picture of hell is that of a place where naught but re morse is expressed. ‘These shall be weeping’ there is the description given us by Christ Himself. “Ask proud Jericho and arrogant Jerusalem do the wages of sin pay, if the wa yof transgression proves hard? See their streets choked with corpses of their children. Their mas sive walls ground to powder . “Ask that proud, imeprious soul, Queen Jezebel if sin’s wages bring honor? If the transgressors way is that of ease? ‘When they went to bury her they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the paliris of her hands.’ 11 ings 9:38. The very dogs which tare her body in the streets turn away from the skull, hands and feet which had designed and executed such iniquities. “Ask Belshazzar the last night he was to spend on earth, ‘King, is the way of transgression the way of triumph’? ‘ln that night was Bfel shazar slain.’ Dan. 5:30. God’s hand wrote His accusation, ‘Thou arc weighed in the balances, and found wanting.’ This proud’ prince lost his kingdom, and just so did the Devil seek to wrest from the Prince of Peace His kingdom that terrible night in the garden of Gettisamane.’ Luke 22:39-16.

But what his Impressions were of what he saw in the temple we may infer from a proper understanding of hia act the next morning on his way to the temple In cursing the barren fig tree which made a great show of leaves but disappointed his hunger with Its fruitlessness It was a sym bol of the spiritual barrenness of the nation, prolific in outw'ard show but barren of faith and therefore ready for judgment. This judgment he began to visit upon them on his return to the tem ple that very morning as he “entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew’ the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold doves—and said unto them. Is it not written. My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers. And the chief priests and scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him.” This attitude proved the nation’s spiritual bairrenness. Like the fig tree, it w’as ready for judgment, , “When he came to It, he found nothing but leaves.” His Judgment upon the nation, as upon the barren fig tree. was. “No man eat fruit of thee hereafter forever.” The religion of the temple had become commer cialized under a mercenary leader ship. The “house of prayer for all nations” had become "a den of thieves”. Its missionary interest in other na- .■ , tions had disappeared. The only place qljotted to other was sq cluttered up with dove cotes and plQney tables that prayer was impos sible in their court. As a testimony for Jehovah to oth.er nations the tem ple was a barren tree. Therefore the King’s judgment.

BABSON, Copyright 1933, Publishers Finan cial Bureau. Babson Park, Mass., May 12. —Bus- iness improvement is already strong ly underway ,as shown by the sus tained advances in car fadings, steel activity, automobile production, elec tricity output, retail trade, and other basic barometers. Now that the nec essary deflation is virtually over and done with, the fundamental law of action and reaction is working for recovery regardless of what emer gency measures may or may not ac tually be taken. President Roosevelt is holding in reserve the various radi cal currency provisions and will ap ply them only if necessary. The ad ministration realizes that the only in flation that will be of permanent help to business is the inflation of employ ment. Hence, I believe the trump card in the President’s hand is his pro- i gram for industrial planning, which | would help business to operate at a profit and would put men back to work at their regular trades. Trend Toward Industrial Planning. People should understand that we are now living in a new world. The next riinety days are destined to write epoch-making pages in United States history. The proposed national in dustrial recovery act, setting up a government board with broad powers to regulate and stimulate industry, is a control plan similar to the War Industries Board of 1918. However, this new proposal is more flexible and gives industry and labor large powers for self-regulation subject to govern ment approval. It behooves indus trial and labor leaders to cooperate in this program. The* question is not whether industry is going to be re gulated. The question is whether the Government will have to regulate it by arbitrary force, or whether employers and labor leaders are sufficiently en lightened to cooperate with each othre and with the government to regulate it. The basic purpose of this new pro gram, is to encourage business expan sion and increase employment all along the line. Recognizing that the quickest way to do that is to make it possible for business to be done at a profit, it is proposed to eliminate cut-throat competition by liberalizing the Anti-Trust laws, legalizing trade practice agreements, and possibly even fixing minimum prices for standard products. The trade associations will be utilized to represent different in dustries, and, together with labor and the government Board, agree on a program of increased activity and j employment. It even become j feasjbslp ta allocate Output between various uriits . in ' a.igiven industry.

This is a constructive program instead of a destructive one such as the arbitrary Thirty-Hour Week Bill would have been. Controlled Production More Impor tant Than Controlled Inflation. Much of our trouble has come from unbalanced production. Industrial planning calls for establishing a closer relation between supply and demand, recognizing at the same time th e pre sent level of output and of purchas ing power is far below normal, and that an increase, controlled and re gulated by industry itself, is the goal to aim at. All efforts should be di rected toward increasing purchasing power and raising the standard of liv ing. In accomplishing that purpose the authority for controlled inflation is far less important than the pro- - 1 11 m ~ Coming to the temple Jesus found its courts filled with dove crates and tables of money] changers.

Furthermore, industry does not nede direct bossing by the Government so much as it needs co operative efforts Jo help itself, un der Government guidance and spon sorship. Financial aid to private in dustry in the form of loans from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation to expand activities and take on more workers wouid help. Mere restriction of production, price, fixing, and wage rate increases will not bring prosperity. What we need is balanced production between var ious industries, elimination of un economic price slashing below pro duction costs, wiping out of sweat shops, and more jobs. It isn’t wage rates alone that determine the size of the worker’s pay-envelope.

Wise economic planning calls for emphasis on increasing the total amount of em ployment and raising the total pur chasing power. That is the kev-note to sustained business recovery. Cooperation Essence of the “New Deal.” The days of “laissez faire” conduct of business are over. It’s no longer “every man for himself and the devil take my neighbor.” Cooperation is the essence of the "new deal.” and if industry, labor, or capital won’t co operate voluntarily then the overn ment will force their cooperation. I regard these words of the President in his recent speech to the United 'States Chamber of Commerce very sig nificant: “I ask that you have the vision to lay aside special and selfish to think of and act for a well-rounded national recovery. Each, and all of you in your own units and in your own industries are but an in tegral part of a great whole and our national economy must be expressed in terms of the whole rather than in terms of the unit.” Business, a sestimated by the Bab sonchart ,how stands at five per cent below a year ago.
