A railroad employee found the well-dressed body of a young man in a corner of an empty boxcar behind the Union Pacific depot.  In the jacket pocket were an empty pillbox and a billfold identifying the youth as—and then it published his name.—When the body was moved, a suicide note was found.  It read:

Dear Dad, dope ruined my life and took away my happiness forever.  I thought I was experiencing life.  I found out it was death.  I hope to God people taking dope find what I found in it sooner than I did.  Goodbye, Dad.  Your son, love, Ricky.

By some means or other, first the ministers, and then the Churches, got on “the down grade,” and in some cases, the descent was rapid, and in all, very disastrous. In proportion as the ministers seceded from the old Puritan godliness of life, and the old Calvinistic form of doctrine, they commonly became less earnest and less simple in their preaching, more speculative and less spiritual in the matter of their discourses, and dwelt more on the moral teachings of the New Testament, than on the great central truths of revelation.

The Brazen Serpent monument by Giovanni Fantoni, photo by David Bjorgen. The sculpture, on Mt. Nebo in Jordan, commemorates God’s command to Moses to raise a sculpture of a snake on a pole in order to heal Israelites dying of snakebites.

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. (John 3:14-15)
