Sin Is Cause Of Cowardice Says Revival Speaker At. the revival at Lake Street tcthodlsl church last night, the vangelist. the Rev. Huberi A. illoii, spoke to a large audience m "The Crucifixion of Christ in Our Day by the Cowardly". The preacher pointed out' tha'., he basis of cowardice Is s!n. 'Adam and Eve walked and talk- id with God until they commit- ed sin and then they were afraid of God and tried to hide. People who sin try lo run away from :he presence of God, but Gnd iias endowed us with a sensitive indicator known as conscience and it follows us like a shadow wher- !ver we go. We cannot get away from our sins and we become cowards because of them. Men become brave because of righteousness in their lives. When o man is right with God he has a clean conscience. He realizes that God, a - good conscience and a moral universe are on hit side and he will fight until he dies; he said, in part. Instances were sighted of earli followers of Christ, who died as martyrs, being sustained by courage because they were right wilh God.
