The Family Altar
38 But when you go to this cheap entertainment, you must remember that you’ve got to take lots of money. A young fellow who takes his girl friend to these parties and these dances, and so forth, is going to pay great lot of his week’s earnings. And the old people who try to find pleasure in going to the beer parlors, to drink away their sorrows of the week, they’re going to have to pay great money. And what do they get from it? They don’t get nothing but heartache.
39 And remember, you got to settle up with God someday for it. “And the wages of sin is death.” You don’t make nothing here on earth, by it. It’s a false mirage. Drinking will only add sorrow. Sin will only add death upon death. Your final check will be separation from God, Eternally, into the Lake of Fire. And you cannot gain anything, but lose.
40 Then God comes and asks the question, “Why do you spend your money for those things that satisfies not? Why do you do it?”
41 What makes man want to do it? They spend all that they’ve got, all that they can earn, to buy drinking, to clothe some woman that they run with, or some kind of a worldly, lustful pleasures.
42 But we are told in the Bible, and are bid to come to God, “And to buy Eternal joy and Eternal Life, without money or without price.”
43 Those things cannot satisfy, and the end of them is Eternal death. And it cost you all the money that you can muster together, to be the—the big shot or the entertainer, or the fun boy, or whatever you might be, or the popular girl, or whatever it is. It cost all you can get together, to do that. Dress in the very highest of dressings, and—and do the things that the world does, only to reap a check of Eternal damnation.
44 God said, then, “Why?” What are we going to do at the Day of Judgment, when we are asked, why did we do that? What’s going to be our answer? What’s going to be the answer to modern America, who says that they are a Christian nation? And there’s more money spent for whiskey, in a year’s time, than there is for food. “Why spend your money for those kind of things?” Yet, the government would send you to penitentiary, for five dollars worth of taxes that you had sent maybe to some institution that wasn’t correctly set in order to receive taxes, to send some missionary overseas. We’re going to be asked some day, “Why did you do it?”
46 God said, “Come, buy Eternal Life, without money, without price.” Life, to live forever, and we turn our backs on It and laugh in His face. What are we going to do on that Day? What’s going to be…?
