GOD'S STANDARDS OF GOOD AND BAD
Jesse M. Hendley
If you have your Bibles now, friends, turn with me to
Romans, chapter 2 and we are going to find here God's

being bad and being good. Or, God's STANDARDS, if you
please, of being bad and being good, as found in
Romans 2, verses 6 and 7. Now let me read them for
you. "Who will render to every man according to his
deeds (that is, God), to them who by patient

the good and bad; that is, the good and bad ACCORDING
TO GOD, the good and bad ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, which
presents to us God's WILL.

such words as these.

bring up good children these days. They deserve more
praise than they get. It is nonsense to assert that
each preceding generation went through the same
difficulties. Yet you hear all sorts of nice people

contend that our adolescents are little different from
those of past periods, and they say this in face of
the fact that our world has ch ...
