I want to speak to you today on God's Payday. There is
a PAY DAY coming someday. Inevitably that day is
coming. It is an awful thing to realize that MAN CAN'T
GET BY WITH SIN. No one ever gets by. You say, "Well,
a lot of people have committed murder and never have

temptation it is to them. They say, "Well, all the
others are doing it." It is a fact that there are NOT
MANY young people who live the true Christian life
today. That is the trouble with Christianity. That is
why Christ's heart is bleeding---so few people are
willing to do His will. I think the reason for
Christian young people not living for Christ is that
they have not been properly instructed in the home.
Their parents have not ...
