S. 0. GORDON SPEAKS
AT CHAPEL EXERCISES
Noted Writer and Speaker
Delivers "Quiet Talk"
S. D. Gordon, of New York,
author and speaker, delivered
one of d'Vcrrles of "quiet 'talks" in
chapel Tuesday morning, his subject
the speaker said,
"runs along the natural groove of a
man's life." Temptation has always
existed and wlll continue to exist to
eternity. In itself, there is no harm,
but with man's aid It becomes an exaggerated evil.
Temptation affects different men in
different ways, Mr. Gordon said. Some
lie down and are trodden under foot
like a dog; some play with temptation and make a pretense of fighting
it, while others really fight It. Such a
man uses will power and if he must
go down, he Is still undefeated.
Mr. Gordon said that temptation
was weak in itself; that it can do
nothing without partnership.
power depends upon how man takes it.
If a man yields in the beginning, lie
makes no show of fighting; if ho
plays with temptation, he Is whipped,
but if he fights he will win out with
the help of God. Man Is no match
for temptation by himself, but with
divine aid, ho can subdue it.
"Who is there to help?" is tho ques
tion often asked. The answer is
Jesus. Ho was a human being, a real
man, and ho had to fight against tho
same temptations that wo do. In tho
fight ho never slipped and In the end
In conclusion, the
speaker said that all men were agreed
in this: "Jesus clearly overtopped and
over-topthe whole race of man."
