Can Infidelity Stand the Test?

A girl lay dying.  Her father was an infidel, her mother a Christian.  He had often ridiculed his wife’s faith to his children.  Now a great sorrow is ploughing through the father’s heart.  His child is dying.

Presently a weak voice is heard, soon to be hushed in death.  “Father, shall I believe what you tell me, or what mother teaches me out of the Bible?”  What a test!  If infidelity can give comfort on a death-bed here is the chance.  What does the father say?

Infidelity gives way before a father’s love.  “You had better believe what your mother tells you,”  came the answer earnestly and distinctly.  Yes, the Bible can stand the test of a death-bed.  Infidelity cannot.
