IS QAMBUINB IMMORAL. SERMON BY REV. J. W THOMAS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 9 February 1914

IS OAMBUINB IMMORAU. SERMON BY REV. J. W THOMAS At the Baptist Church, on Sun day night, February 1, the Rev. J. W. Thomas gave a discourse to a large congregation on the above subject. He said: There are many social evils, and in the pursuit of them many human wrecks are wrought. They each and all have their distinctive features but pursue a course that brings about the destruction of the whole man. The methods may vary but the same goal is inevitable. Drink, lusi., and gambling are names that stand for shameless sins, and the total destruction of all that is good and pure in man. Then, does it not appear clear that if gambling is recognised as one of the great social evils, it must be placed on the list of immoralities? I. Ramsay Mac Donald says: "Gambling poisons the life . . . it cubs away the roots of good citizenship ... . the spread ol' tho gambling habit" is one 0f:;-, the 'most disquieting events of the . time." Charles Dickons' saw nothing but "Cruel ty,: coyetdusiiess and...
