(If you would like a booklet that thoroughly expounds and
explains all about "the unpardonable sin," write for our free pub–
lication on the subject. Its thought-provoking title is
What Do You
Mean- "The Unpardonable Sin"?
It will make the truth plain.)
WhatTo
Do?
If
you see a Christian do something wrong, DON'T SIT IN JUDG–
MENT AND CONDEMN - that's God's business to judge, not yours!
Let's have compassion and merey - WE don't know the inner
heart of others - only Goo does!
And if you, yourself, have stumbled and fallen down, DON'T
BE DISCOURAGED! Get up and press on ahead!
God looks on the heart - the attitude - the
intent.
As long as one, in his heart, has the real desire to walk God's

with Him - is deeply sorry and repents when he commits the
occasional sin - and is seeking to overcome sin, and to make
God's way his habitual way of life, he will stumble on occasion,
but if he confesses it and repents, he will be forgiven. But, if he is
diligent in his Christian life, his occasional stumbling will become
less and less - he will be making good progress, overcoming,
GROWING spiritually and in righteous godly character.
What is your attitude? When you have sinned, have you been
carelessly indifferent about it? You are on dangerous ground. Do
you justify it, feel
others
are to blame? That will never
justiJY
your
sins. Do you still
desire
to go God's Way? Then it's not too late.
Turn from sins, CONFESS your sins - to God. REPENT! Pick your–
self up, with Christ's helping hand, and go on overcoming and
GROWING spiritually.
(And if you are one who has NEVER really repented, been
baptized and received God's Holy Spirit - and yet earnestly de–
sire to - you may want to get in contact with one of God's true
ministers. Just write: 300 West Green St., Pasadena, California

But remember, once you know you have really repented and
