Only insofar as we are ahle to put away pr.ido and clothe ourselves in humility put away mpuri-ty and live pure and hon- est lives or as the' apostle puts it, denying urigod liness and wo-rl dly j lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present only so-far. as we. do these- things will.peace prevail." .'This leads to another question. is the power -adequate to so transform men's lives'?
