Ohio Annual Conference, Reports and Resolutions Adopted
			
              REPORTS AND RESOLUTIONS                    5

      "In the midst of abounding evil to still believe in
    the perfect goodness of God. In the midst of the
    temporal still to believe in the eternal.
      In the presence of iniquities and triumphant
    power to believe jubilantly in the intimate suprem-
    acy of righteousness.
      In the loss of all things to be conscious of riches
    which can never be taken away and security in
    God.
      In the darkness of the world's calvary, to grasp
    with certainty the coming resurrection, when a re-
    stored and emancipated world may  become  as
    never before the kingdom of our Lord Jesus
    Christ."
  After all it seems that the condition confronting the
church is a blessing; it has already served the purpose of
awakening her from her adolescence, and we are seeing the
awful sinfulness of sin as never before and how impotent
is culture without Christ to move the world of mankind
toward their true meaning and goal.
  This is a great day for the preacher. We face a world
with bleeding heart. While the world is experiencing its
gethsemane, while men are shedding their blood for the re-
demption of the world from Prussianism, there never was
such a propitious time for the preacher to point to the cross
of calvary and to tell men "Without the shedding of blood
there is no remission of sins."
  It is the preachers' day as never before to tell men that
it is futile to throw themselves athwart the track of God's
laws. That might does not make right. It is a migty task
but we are buttressed and fortressed with immutable guar-
antees. Jesus, the captain of our salvation, says, "I am
with you alway, even to the end of the age." "The gates of
hell shall not prevail against her." So we conclude by say-
ing: Like a ship at sea she may be storm-tossed, but not
wrecked.
