IS SCIENCE THE ROAD TO HELL?
Local Men Differ
A friend of mine stoutly assorted
on the street the other day Modern
science is sending people to Hell." I
have heard such assertions before,
but did not know that they were com
ing from men of intelligence in our
day. Another thing that came out in
our conversation is that my friend is
troubled about the hypocrisy outside
the church while that which troubles
me is within the church.
I have great interest in science, but
if it leads to Hell, I must leave it out,
for it is my profession to point out the
'oad to point out the road to Heaven.
To bring this matter to a point
where it will be interesting and edify
ing, I challenge my friend to a joint
discussion, and grant him the privi
ledgo of stating the question either
positively of negatively. There's
nothing in an empty assertion. Let's
look into this matter.
Yours for a lifelong search for
truth and its application to character,
