Probation After Death is the subject of the Lesson-Sermon which will be read in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, April 24th. The Golden Text is: Verily, Verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. (John 5:25.) Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon are the following from the Bible: But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. (1st Corinthians 15:20, 21, 25, 36.) The Lesson-Sermon includes also the following passages from page 427 of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy: If man is never to overcome death, why do the Scriptures say, The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death? The tenor of the Word shows that we shall obtain the victory over death in proportion as we overcome sin. The great difficulty lies in ignorance of what God is. God, Life, Truth and Love make man undying. Miss Joan Wright of Dover, Eng., was fined $150 for smuggling, $150 for impertinence to custom guards and $150 for lying to the court.
