Uncle Eli says...

(Guest submittal by Sis. Barbara Watkins)

Eli Puterbaugh

The Bible contains the mind of God,

The state of man,

the way of salvation,

the doom of sinners, and

the happiness of believers.

It's doctrines are holy,

It's precepts are binding,

It's histories are true, and

It's decisions are immutable.

Read it (the Bible) to be wise,

Believe it to be safe, and

Practice it to be holy.

It contains light to direct you,

Good to support you,

and Comfort to cheer you.

It is the Traveler's map;

the Pilgrim's staff,

the Pilots compass,

the Soldier's sword, and

the Christian's charter.

Here Paradise is restored,

Heaven opened and

the gates of Hell disclosed.

Christ is its grand subject,

our good the design and

the Glory of God its end.
