Excerpt from Cain's Wife, and Other Addresses
Cain 's wife. International copyright secured, 1909, French E. Oliver.
My Scripture lesson to-night, which is Genesis to l7. Deals with the romance and tragedy of Eden. God created Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which must have been, from all accounts, a veritable suburb of ljlfeavenr Aurora must have played with all Nature's ineffable beauty in that glorious spot. There the glory of God was full-orbed and transcendent. It seems incredible that man, being placed in such marvelous surroundings, could have become despicable, disobedient, and degraded. Some people tell me that all they need is better environment. That is nonsense! Adam and Eve had the best environment that the world has ever known, and the Devil pois oned the atmosphere with Hell's foul odors, and they fell from the height of purity to the depths of impurity; from God's light to death's darkness.
