By Rev. French E. Oliver

My text to-night assumes the form of a ques-
tion, unanswerable because of the nature of its
relation to law and government, and because the
law and government are holy — i. e., God's law
and government. Although the text demands a
consideration of law and the law breaker's guilt,
and the mode of punishment to be inflicted upon
him, no lawyer or judge or juror can give an
answer to the text.

HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE By Rev. French E. OliverMy text to-night assumes the form of a ques-tion, unanswerable because of the nature of its relation to law and government, and because the law and government are holy — i. e., God's law and government. Although the text demands a consideration of law and the law breaker's guilt, and the mode of punishment to be inflicted upon him, no lawyer or judge or juror can give an answer to the text. And while the physiologist and anatomist knows that the laws of pangenesis and heredity are absolute in their universality, he cannot understand or explain how through the sin of Adam the whole creation groans under the burden and weight of sin, nor can he answer the question of my text. Weary of man's ignorance and inability to cope with the question of the text you may meet the Judge of all the earth at Heaven's gate and He will answer: "The law is inexorable, the Scriptures cannot be broken; there is no answer

to the text." And then you decide that in hell the secret must be kept, and you dash away 8 "HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE?'' through space and stand at the gates of hell and present the question of my text; although fiend-ish grins and groans may be seen and heard, no answer can be given by the ones eternally in-carcerated to the question: ''How shall we es-cape if we neglect so great salvation?" recorded in Hebrews 2 :3. The text is a well demonstrated philosophy. Progress or degeneracy is the lav/ of life. You will be a better or a worse man when you leave this meeting to-night. Better if you embrace your opportunities and quit your diabolical task-master and let the King of Glory enter your heart. Worse if you murder your opportunities, trample under foot the Son of God, despise the atonement and leave this building a coward, a

poltroon and an ingrate, — can't you understand that? Some man is insulted now; he looks con-temptuously at the argument and says : '*I am not responsible for coming into this world, if I am lost it is not my fault. Your God has no right to bring creatures into existence and then shovel them into hell if they don't like His laws." My friend you are not honest. I defy any man on earth to follow the doctrine of irresponsibil-ity because he was born without his wish or opinion having been expressed. First, to expose the dishonor of that excuse. I will ask you to "HOW SHALL WE ESCAPE?*' 9 refuse to eat when hunger gnaws away at your vitals; you are not responsible for coming into this world, and when your clothing wears out refuse to secure more; when sickness lays hold upon you refuse medicine, refuse the attention
