Do Your Children
Go to Church?
Your father and grandfather believed in religion and
prayer. The Bible went westward with rifles and axes
in prairie schooners. But will the next generation try
to get along without religion? Even today we are not
a church-going nation. Only one in -every three of
the 1,600,000,000 human beings on this earth are nom
inal worshippers of the God of the Jews and Gentiles.
A century or half a century from now will the United
States be classed among the nations that believe in God ?
