The wealth of kings and the skill of engineers were poured into its construction. And, when it was finished, it roamed a vagabond course over the mountains for hundreds of miles, like a great grey dragon breathing defiance from every segment of its poised body. It was a peace-loving nation's way of telling the world that she wanted no more war . i . and the men who built it actually believed it would protect them from aggression. , The Americans have a hydrogen bomb. Itj too, is a peace-loving nation's way of telling the world thai she wants no more war. And millions actually believe it will protect, not only America; but the whole world from aggression. The only sure protection against war is the fortress 1 that'saves< mankind from the evils in men's hearts which foment war/ That fortress is the Christian religion. But even our religion is not a sure protection until it reaches the hearts of all men. Support your church. Help it build the?Joun- dations of Peace in your own heart. And with your prayers and your purse advance its tireless efforts to build those same foundations in the hearts of all men. •» «. CHURCH TO* AU, . AU FOH THE CHURCH «?<>„• Vhy u " Sunday . Monday Tu csday Nehemiah Matthew Chapter V, raM 1-11 38-48 13-29 17-28 57-62 28-39 1-9 i K X Weekly Bible Com merit By William E GUroy, D. D. The Bible U a great book of truth concerning God. That is its supreme value for man. But the Bible is also a great book of truth concerning man. Tli* BibU's truth concerning God''is all good; for God is all good,, and "God is love," as the Bible in its highest message declares. But the Bible could not be a book of truth concerning man, if it did not depict him for what he is, and for what he has shown himself to be in all the long history of man since lime began. Sin was in the beginning as well as creation, and unbrotherli- ness and murder soon began the role of violence and tragedy that , has continued unbroken until today . Even the righteous and noble Abraham (Genesis 18:21-33) once lapsed into duplicity and the great hero and psalm-singing David is not spared in the matter of his adultery and the virtual mur- der of the man he had wronged. All that is xruth and realism concerning, man with nothing withheld. The Bible in this respect is the great marvel of integrity and honest reporting in all literature. The marvel is no less because the Bible's report concerning evil in man is no muckraking or pessimistic exploitation, as is so much of the other writing concerning sin and evil, including that of our own time If the Bible in its truthful realism often depicts man at his lowest, it also reveals him at his highest, not only in what he has achieved in moral greatness and spiritual aspiration, but even move irt the revelation of his greater possibilities and in all that he may become. The wonderful words of John (I John 3-2) apply as much to the saints of the Old Testament as to those of the New, and they apply likewise to the saints of today. It is man at his highest: "Beloved, now are we the sons of | God, and it doth not appear what \ we shall be; but we know that when He shall appear we shall be like Him, for we hhall see Him as He is." The Bible portrays man as the subject of salvation through the grace of God, no matter how much he may have fallen from his best estate. That is the message of its Gospel climax. But since in its realism the Bible sets forth evil and sin in all the grimness, crudeness, degradation, and cruelty that man's sin has accomplished, it means that many pages of the Bible cannot bo pleasurable reading,, however much they may be valuable for instruction and warning. It is good to know that the Bible relates things as they were holding nothing back, but it is pot pleasant to read that so many kings of Israel were idolaters and rascals, betraying their God and misruling their people. For this reason I believe that in the reading and study of the Bible the pages depicting evil and violence ought to be tempered with much reading of its noblest passages. That to immerse one's self in Kings and Chronicles, even with the story of evil kings, interspersed with the record of a few good kings and reformers, is not good unless one turns also to uplifting Psalms, to the vision of prophets as in Isaiah 62, and to all that glorifies the Old Testament. Paul said that the chief advantage of the Jews was that "unto them were committed the oracles of God" (Romans 3:1); and that verdict still stands in literature and history . Beyond all in human history, the Hebrew saints sought God and found Him. All our study of the Old Testament avails us nothing unless we find Him too. For that reason we must study much more than the history of kings •and tin: record of events. ASSEMBLY OP GOD Milan* at Red River fl»V. '*. H. Vaughan, pastor Sunday School at 9:45.
