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.
