CHAPTER XII
Is There Life After Death?
why this mystery about life after death? WHY so many beliefsofso
many different religions? How can we KNow? Can we believe God?
Adam and Eve didn't. Few believed Christ - that is, few believed
what He SAID! Could we believe God - if He
told us?
1 said to my wife fifty-one years ago, "1 know the Bible says,
'Thou shalt keep Sunday.' " "How do you know?" she asked.
"Did you read it?"
"No, but 1 know it's there, because all these Christian
churches get their religion from the Bible, and they all keep Sun–
day."
"Why don't you look it up and show it to me?" she chal–
lenged.
But 1couldn't find it.
1 chanced to read in Romans 6:23: "The wages of sin is
DEATH ..." "Now wait a minute!" 1exclaimed, surprised. "In Sun–
day school they taught me the wages we earn for sinning is IMMORTAL
LIFE, not death - eternallife
in he
I/
jire.
"Then 1read the remainder
ofthe verse"... but the GIFT ofGod is eternallife...."
