Defied God and died on the spot



A Milwaukee paper printed the following incident which further illustrates the folly of flying in the face of the Almighty. The sinner should fear to run up against the judgments of God.

"Just as Amos Clarke, aged forty, farmer, living on the Lewiston Reservoir, twenty miles south of here (Ada, Ohio), openly defied the Lord, he was struck dead in his front yard tonight. Clarke had been known as an atheist for years, and tonight in the presence of his family and several neighbors he said there was no God and defied the Supreme Being to punish him. No sooner had the words left his lips than he was stricken and died a few minutes later. His family is composed of Christian boys and girls who have been secretly trained and instructed by the mother."
