WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TEACH ABOUT CHRISTMAS As one studies the Bible, it is immediately apparent that the word "Christmas is not found in its holy pages Nor can one determine w'nen Christ was born. It is universally admitted by Bible scholars that no one knows when He was born. It is unlikely that the shepherds would have hod their flocks in the open fields at nigh* iLuke 2:8) in December. So His bir:n might have been in May, or some other time No one really knows. I m giad that men remembei Christ in some way o! any t me. However, we honor Christ more truly if we icn ember Him in 'he way that He has directed. When instituting the Lord s Supper, He said, 'DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME :Luke 22:19.) Many refuse to remember Christ in His appointed /.-ay each Sunday lActs 20.-7.) but will celebrate 'ebgious seasons of he man invention, such as Christmas, Easter, and Lent. Some Christians in Galaria began to celebrate unauthorized religious seasons, and these were rebuked by Paul jGal. 4:9-11.) John tells JS to abide m trie teaching of Christ, and not to go beyond it (2 Jno. 9 ) The teachina of Christ does not include Christmas. WHERE DID CHRISTMAS ORIGINATE? It is a human m.c-ntion, atradition of men, tracing uts origin, not to God s woid but to Rome, hence "Chist-Mass. WHAT THEN SHOULD BE THE CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE TOWARD THIS DAY? Since men do not know •when Christ was born ana smce there is no account m the New Testament of the early Church or Christians observing such a day in, remembrance of Cnnst s birth, then it has nothing whatsoever 'o do //ith the Christian s obligation to God. Out attitude then, must be based or' that which is outside the Scriptuie since there is nothing in the Scripture about it. In view of ,l is, we as Christ- iansians obsedve Christmas as a iegci! holiday, o time of happy association with friends and those we love, and a time of giving gifts to our children. We try to carry out our lewe 'oi Christ every day by keeping His commandments to preach the gospel (Matt. 28.18-20.), to meet and worship Him and observe HIS DEATH in the Lord s Supper every first day of the week (Sunday). (Matt. 18:20: Acts 20:7; Hebrews 10:25.) Let us love one anothei. Let us give gifts. Let us be thankful that Christ was born and died for our sins. Let us sing praises to God. Let us do all these things, nol seasonally, but steadfastly, "always abounding in the work of the Lord." II Cor. 1 5:58.) Cherry Street Church of Christ 2416 Cherry St Charles D. Crosier, Min.

TV Review Williams Show Fails To Click By CYNTHIA LOVVRV ' AP Television-Radio Writer NEW YORK (API Danny Kaye once reflected, almost regretfully, that it was less strain to turn out one show a week on television than to do one or two specials a ( year. The audience does not expect as much as the performer learns to settle for the best he can do in the time given to him, said Kaye. Goodness knows what we expected of Thursday night's "Andy Williams Show." but as one of NBC's trio of Christmas specials, it seemed to suffer from the one-show-this-season problem. The hour, full of assorted Williamses. loaded with song and looking like an old- fashioned greeting card, would have been a dandy, sentimental i show—if Andy and associates had been visiting us in our living rooms weekly this year. But we really haven't seen much of the gentleman for months and most of us have, quite frankly, lost touch. The intimate show. which even had Andy's parents clowning a bit, just didn't bring off the atmosphere of informality, warmth and family reunion that was its aim and object. "The Little Drummer Boy." that started as an oft-heard holiday season song, was given form and substance in an animated half-hour musical show primarily designed for children. :The three-dimensional animation was intriguing and a num- iber of fine talent participated-i Greer Garson as the voice of the story teller. Jose Ferrer as the voice of the villain who kid­ naped the little boy ant', his pets, and the Vienna Boys Choir, which sang the famous song. The p-ogram never really came to a decision, and moved violently between the broadest kind of comedy to the reverently dramatic. Bob Hope and company were in high form in his holiday special. It was a show with sketches and musical numbers hung around a plot that had Sanla Claus kidnaped. Naturally, it was suspected that he had been hijacked along with his flying Volenti Defends Screen Violence WASHINGTON (AP) — Violence is a necessary ingredient in the movies and other art forms, President Jack Valenti of the Motion Picture Association of America told a presidential commission Thursday. "The human race is eternally and alternately fascinated and horrified by violence and! death," said Valenti, a former i aide to President Johnson. "The I screen must be free of fetters if' creativity is to flourjsh." "But. this freedom must be re- i sponsible if it is to endure, else j libcry becomes license,' he add-! ed at a hearing of the National' Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence into the effects of mass mebUa presente- lion ol violent events. "Throughout the history of the drama, violence has been a ncessary in­ gredient in artistic expression— indeed, the very essence of drama is conflict," he said. "Violence should not be presented as a way of life but shown in balance for what it truly is, one of the many facets in the whole complex of human experience." Norman Isaacs, executive editor of the Louisville, Ky.,' Courier-Journal, criticizing the news media for its coverage of violence, called Wednesday for a federal commission study of the news industry. But Valenti joined today several earlier witnesses representing radio, television, newspapers and magazines in urging mass media self restraint, in portraying violence as the only solution in a free society. sleigh and reindeer by bad guys who looked like Fidel Castro. In addition to the rapid fire gags by Hope, there was an effective dance number starring Carol Lawrence—but how an oriental number was inserted into the story is a mystery—and gooc'. songs by Nancy Ames and Glen Campbell. Jerry Colonna appeared briefly and while his contribution was short, it was pleasant to see him back with Hope and looking so well after his long illness. It was a pretty giddy show, but somehow it hung together to make it Hope's happiest outing of the season. major networks will preempt: regular programming for the start of. the six-day moon probe scheduled for Saturday morning.
