(Editor’s Note: The following short article appeared in the April-May-June issue of Think On These Things. It is reprinted here with the author’s permission. This monthly column is designed to assist the preacher in his efforts to spread the gospel. One way to be of help is to warn of abuses. I commend the article to you.)
