LIMA NEWS Hard to Believe iThat This Life is Be-AII and End-All J OB asks dramatically the great question that man has ever asked: "If a man die, shall he live again?" The tirst answer comes from the materialists. They say this life is all, and that there is nothing after death. It seems strange that those who answer the question negatively should think it worth while to speak and write extensively about it. Secondly, there is the answer of the spiritualists. They bei. lieve there is evidence of life after death from communication with the spirit world, with those who are dead. The value of the evidence offered varies greatly but the fact of much deceit and fraud does not justify disregarding it completely. The third answer is that of the Christian faith. It finds In the words of Jesus and in the New Testament clear belief in Immortality. The real answer to the question is the answer of moral and spiritual life and it may be noted that this was the answer Job found to the question. He found satisfaction in the belief that there must be something perma- He speaks of his Redeemer, living and standing at the last day upon earth. The word "redeemer" is sometimes translated as "vindicator," and it implies the conception of warrant for moral living. What essential difference between good and evil can we believe in, if there is nothing abiding or permanent in the universe or human life? If decay and death are the end of all that is living, what place is there for the hope and faith that are at the very foundation of moral and spiritual being? To see the wicked prospering while the good and the innocent suffer, - often because of their conscientious convictions, is to feel that one is in a topsy-turvy world, unless there is some vindication of truth and right. This must have its roots in deeper spiritual reality than is found in the short span of man's life on earth from the cradle to the grave.
