March 24, Sunday School opened
with the Superintendent in charge
Subject of the lesson - Woes to
; Hypocrites. The lesson was re
viewed by the superintendent. Mrs.
Wilma Itodwell. She said today’s
lesson teaches that Christ con
demns insincerity. The Scribes and
Pharisees and hypocrites had a
form of godliness but were far
from it. They kept their cups
clean on the outside but the in
side was unclean. Christ wants us
to keep our cup clean on the in
side. He wants sincere Christians.
