SUNDAY ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 24 October 1914
SUNDAY ADDRESS. Continuing his remarks on the question of the immortality of the soul Mr Kenney, in his Sunday night address, said a knowledge of the possibilities of what a man may at tain to is indispensable to its attain ment; that whenever the object is worthy of attainment it invariably means work, investigation, thought, determination a n d perseverance. Eternal life, with joy for evermore, was the highest and greatest possi bility that is not only presented to man, but, if he will,was his birthright. And he oman who forgoeschis birth right, through indolence, indifference or laziness, had nothing to complain of, when he is with justice wiped out of existence, his thoughts perish with hinm. He had not fulfilled God's purpose in his existence; had not given pleasure to God, for so recri procative is God in his dealings with man that if they give him pleasure .., t . . - 1.- t-y hem nl1,,. ure for eternity. If they accepted Him as their father and guide in the way He .has appoin...
