Service, StrasW K , Va. ^ -,•— c \\ t i, 1 ,/ Weekly Bible Comment By William E. Oilrey. D. D. Is there a beat in ihe Bible? someone may ask. Is not the Bible all good? YM, th» Biblt is mil good in what it tells us concerning God. But I have recently written of the Bible as a great book of truth and realism concerning man. In its great honesty that truth and realism depicts man in all his evil, as well as in his capacity of good. Anyen* who feu bora Btudying in the Books of Kings and Chronicles need not be reminded of the pages that reek in the blood of slaughter and assassination (See such passages as ll Chronicle* 28:6-8 and II Chronicles 22: 10 and 23:15, among many). Appreciation of th» Bibto't honesty in recording facts as they were cannot make the record of evil pleasurable, and the Bible would not be what it is, if it were only the story of man's evil and of kingly failure. So there is a best in the Bible; to be constantly sought and borne in mind and heart as one reads the sadder and grimmer pages. That bast in the Bible is found even near the records of iniquity, in individuals and kings who did righteously in evil times, in prophets who rebuked the sin in kings and peoples with. fearless proclamations of the judgment of God, and in saints who lived lives of holy contemplation and aspiration. It u my own feeling that courses of study in the Old Testament, particularly of such Books as Kings and Chronicles, should be interspersed with much study and reference to the New Testament. I question the wisdom of carrying children, and even adults, through )ong weeks of unbroken study of records of so much evil, although I recall that when my nephews and nieces used to spend the summers with me, and I read the Bible in daily family devotions, they used to say: "Read the Old Testament, Uncle." I suspect ihat thty enjoyed the stories of wars and adventures, of which there are plenty. There is in most young folk, and perhaps in older folk, too, an interest in books like Treasure Island, in pirates, and adventurous rascals, without any intention of being rascals themselves, and perhaps with little realization of the bloody and violent backgrounds. Whether or not it is a rather harmless, or a deplorable, interest, I don't know. It may be only an infusionfof something different into one's normal life and environment. Some very good and harmless people take a great, interest in mystery stories about crime and murder. Bui I have a feeling ihat' every Bible lesson, whatever its theme, ought to have injected into it some teaching about Jesus, and something about the teaching of Jesus. It ought to be Christian as we]] as Biblical. For those who may feel as I do there is something of interest and profit in a recent book of seventeen sermons, nine of them "based on the Beatitudes, and the other eight on sayings and experiences of Jesus. Their author is Dr. Frederick M. Meek, Minister of the Old South Church, in Boston. Dr. Meek has jusi com* through a tragic experience, which fortunately has had a happy ending. A throat infection imposed upon him a complete and unbroken silence for six months. He has recovered and recently returned to his pulpit. His book of sermons is aptly entitled The Life thy Live; they are essentially helps toward living it. This, and a former book of sermons, Monday to Friday Is Not Enough, are published by the Oxford University Press. ASSEMBLY OF GOD Milam at Red River M«y. A. R. Vaughan, pasior Sunday School at 9:45.
