value in providing the way to life for humanity? Can any one who honestly thinks he is a preacher, and who pretends to preach the Bible, claim that the blood of Jesus was not essential to give life to the peoples of earth?

"Redeem" literally means to loose with something; it means a purchase price provided, which is of sufficient value to purchase the thing desired to be purchased. The precious life-blood of Jesus poured out in death upon the cross provided the price for the redemption of the human race. His perfect life exactly corresponded with the perfect life that Adam enjoyed when in Eden, and therefore satisfied the requirements of the divine law. It provided the price for the buying of life for the human race. "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Cor. 6:20) This corresponds with the further testimony, which reads: "Ye were redeemed. . . with the precious blood of Christ."-1 Pet. 1: 18, 19.

Again it is written of Jesus: "For thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood, out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. (Rev. 5:9) By the grace of God he tasted death for every man. (Heb. 2:9) It was the perfect man Jesus pouring out his life-blood that provided the price for the redemption of mankind which, after all, mankind must in God's due time have an opportunity to know. "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." -1 Tim. 2:5, 6.

When the canopy broke, the vapors and waters would descend to earth's atmosphere. The great quantities of water, mingled with snow and ice, rushing toward the equator with thunderous sounds, would grind the hills and mountains into valleys and cause many changes in the form of the earth's surface.

Paolo Veronese False teaching has induced many people to believe that sanctification means to make an outward show of solemn and assumed piety, to exhibit an exaggerated degree of gravity and solemnity. To this end many wear a certain kind of apparel and assume long and solemn faces and speak with great and assumed gravity; while others fold their hands and try to look good, while at the same time scheming to see what they can do to cooperate with the commercial and political elements of this world to gain power.
