EDITOR’S COMMENT:

I know of my great-grandfather’s low opinion of Roman Catholicism.  Thus I suspect that he would not have approved of the resurgence of the Russian Orthodox Church in the wake of the fall of Communism.  Or I could be wrong about that point.

Ps. 9, 17

The wicked shall be turned in to hell, and all the nations that forget God.

I.

God is the supreme need of the world.

(1)  God is the Father.  Men need this view of him, that he loves them and seeks their good–welcomes home the prodigal.

(2)  God the Son–who died for us and who forgives sin–spoke peace to the penitent thief on the cross.  “He never turns a soul away.”

(3)  God the Spirit–who convicts of sin, of righteousness and judgment to come.  Dwells in the heart of the believer to guuide and aid all the way.

II.

Yet ages forget God, nations forget him, as Russia; individuals forget him.  But they find no satisfaction, are “turned into hell,” often upon earth.

III.

Forgetting God, they regard not men, become willing to shoot them down, to crush them beneath the wheels of their greed in industry.

IV.

Why will men are risk living without God–his mercy, his pardon, his peace, his love, his guidance and grace in life and in death?
