Back to the Bible- A Remedy for Trouble
The All-Wise Creator of us all has given the world a remedy for its ills, but the world seems to think it is wiser than its Creator, and refuses to accept it, preferring to try a thousand remedies of its own.
What we need to do is to get back to the first principles: that God created the heavens, the earth; and that man is our brother. We need to practice the golden rule and observe the Sabbath.
When we do, then we shall do much toward getting rid of bad debts, bad crops, red bugs, bed bugs, weevils, and floods.
What is to be expected when we keep stores open the same on Sundays as we do other days? What is to be expected when we ride miles and miles to see a baseball game on Sunday?
God made his laws to be observed- not to be set aside by puny men. Man may think he can get by them, but he cannot. The Bible teaches us of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man. It tells us to observe the Sabbath, to love our neighbors, to give thanks in all things.
Let us get back to the Bible.
Our farmers have trouble because they do not observe the laws of God. The Bible says so. Yet we seek to find a remedy elsewhere.
Spirit-filled and earnest preachers have given their lives to uplift their bothers, yet people will not heed. The people seem to think that they know more than God. But when ill comes the people don’t know what to do. They feel so ashamed of not having done as God said that they seek every other remedy rather than the sure one.
Politics will not help you; no matter who is elected the problems will be about the same.
But there is a remedy for all human ills. A sure remedy, a never-failing remedy.
That is God.
