Independent Star-News

The Reverend W. Glenn McFadden of the Church of the Brethren in the Independent Star-News Pasadena, California

You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth" [Rev. Stand. Ver.].

Then follows warning that the nation which forgets God and goes after other gods shall surely perish.
