IN ADAM---IN CHRIST
Jesse M. Hendley
I Corinthians 15:45-49
Will you turn with me, please to Romans 5:12 through
21, and we are studying today "In Adam and In Christ."
But let me say this to you, we are not going to stay
with this passage. We are calling particular attention
to the fact that we have "In Adam and In Christ" from
one angle in Romans 5:12 through 21, and today we are
going to turn to First Corinthians 15:45 through 49,
which I want you to look at particularly. Have it
ready, please, in just a moment, where we read, "The
first Adam and the last Adam." These are the two chief
New Testament passages that give to us the type of
Adam in Christ. One is Romans 5:12 through 21 and the
other First Corinthians 15:45 through 49.

California in a day, New York in four or five days,
killing most life as it traverses across the

that there are at least 300,000,000 gods in India
alone. Just think of that. You remember God says that
He will have no other gods beside Himself, in the
first great commandment. The chief of the Chinese
delegation to the U.N. officially reports that Chinese
communists executed 15,600,000 persons and starved
20,000,000 others in a two-year period recently. There
are 35 1/2 million people who have been harmed,
killed, starved, by the Soviets in the past two years!
Communism is the threat to the world today. Communism
and Christianity are at odds. The present Soviet
armies in Europe, even without their satellites, are
four times as strong as all the Western Allies put
together. That is the statement of Sir Winston ...
