Do we any longer have a sense of honor? What does it mean when we make a solemn promise? I know of several abandoned spouses—wives or husbands of adulterers—who have lost custody of the children, possibly because being abandoned by a lying and cheating lout or whore has the tendency to make you angry, and anger does not play well in court. How is this possible, unless we really no longer expect people to tell the truth and to abide by their promises?

All the evidence of divine spiritual truth, and all the foundation of our real interest in the things whereof it is a declaration — as to benefit, advantage, and comfort — depend on their relation unto Christ.

Freedom is a word ever on the lips of Americans. Yet it is a word that precious few, even those who claim the name of Christian, know truly. Because freedom is not opened by the working of our will. The door to freedom is Christ and Christ alone, and the key is death to self and living unto God. And few there are that find it.
