"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?" '
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
E phesians 2:8,9, says: "For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of
works, lest any man should boast." Time and again have
heard great men, and good men, quote this passage and
follow it up by saying: "There Is nothing you can do, ab-
solutely nothing to get saved, itIs the gift of God." Such ad-
vice usually brings to mind the passage where a man asked
Christ if there were few that be saved, and His answer."Strive
to enter In at the straight gate: for many, I say unto you, will
seek to enter in, and shall not be able."-Luke 12:24. The
writer is not concerned about upsetting anothee's doctrine,
unless it Is a doctrine that uses one Scripture to cancel
another Scripture. In the "temptation scene" when the devil
quoted a Scripture to offset the Scripture Christ acted upon,
Christ told him he was "tempting God" We should all be
greatly concerned lest any be found tares and offensive and
"food for the furnace fire" in that day, when they are sup-
posed to be, and think they are, good wheat for the Master's
garner. The Bible does not contradict itself. Apparent con-
tradictions are the result of our blindness, stiff-neckedness,
and uncircumcision of the hearit
"And, oh, what a weeping and walling, when the lost were
told of their fate. They cried for the rocks and the mountains
to fall on them and hidethem from the face of HiIm thatsitteth
upon the throne, andfrom thewrathoftheLamb.Theycried,
but their cry was too late."-Rev. 614-17.
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God
and keep His commandments; for this is the whole duty of
man. For God shall bring every work Into judgment, with
every secret thing, whether It be good, or whether it be evil."
Eccles. 12:13, 14. REPENT, TURN FROM EVIL, AND MAKE
YOURSELF A CANDIDATE FOR "THE GRACE OF GOD
THAT BRINGETH SALVATION!"
Once heard of a Negro woman who got up in a Church
Testimony meeting and spoke about as follows:"God put the
Rainbow in the sky to tell us He was not going to drown the
world again with water.But justlabout sver sinceHe has been
advertising that He is going to 'BURN HER UP WITH THE
WICKED' WHO DON'T REPENT ANID QUIT THEIR EVIL
AND DEVILMENT! HowIs it that we keep loving and serving
the devil and this evil world?"
In the Sermon on The Mount, Matthew 5:48, Christ sald:
"BE YE THEREFORE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER
WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT!"
The writer wishes to make a special and urgent request of
any who may agree with him 100%, and that Is that daily you
