Imitating Christ for two weeks

Some thousands of young people of Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., members of Christian Endeavour Societies, Epworth Leagues, and Baptist Young People’s Unions, undertook to lead for two weeks at least, beginning January 3, 1909, such a life as they supposed Jesus would have led had lie been situated as they are.

Without wishing to discourage, much less make light of any good thing, one naturally wonders how these young people were living before January 3, and whether the two weeks’ alteration in their lives would be so radical that they would be indisposed to go on for the remainder of their lives in the same way.

Did they not realise that gaining the crown requires faithfulness until death?
