Some Things Quite Plain

    An English army officer in India who had been living an impure life went round one evening to argue religion with the chaplain. During their talk the officer said:

    "Religion is all very well, but you must admit that there are difficulties—about the miracles, for instance."

    The chaplain knew the man and his besetting sin, and quietly looking him in the face, answered:

    "Yes; there are some things in the Bible not very plain, I admit; but the seventh commandment is very plain."
