Sunday School Lesson Truth, Justice, Mercy, These Are Immortal By ROY L. SMITH Hie Uniform Sunday School lesson for Match 17: "JESUS DEMONSTRATES HIS AUTHORITY," Mark 11:1 through 12:12. Alan Walker, the famous Australian, tells the story of a friend who was under considerable fire because he would not support some old cronies in a proposal with which he could not agree for moral reasons. "If I seem to be out of step with the crowd," he explained' to Dr Walker, "it is oecause I am lis tening to t h < drum beats r mother drummer." This is the SMITH secret of the power of leadership — the ability to adjust one's life to the demands of honor, right, justice,, and truth. The American principle of majority rule is a wise one which has proved itself again and again. But it also exposes us to some grave hazards. It happens every day that the majority is wrong, and the minority is right. It has happened many times that innocent men have paid heavy penalties for crimes they never committed, for no better reason than that 12 mistaken people brought in a verdict of guilty. The Temple system in Jerusalem seems to have been rather commonly accepted. That there was graft in it, probably any one would have admitted. That the high priest and his henchmen were making a tidy profit out of it for themselves was no secret. "But there's nothing anyone can do about it," was probably the way the average man responded to the situation. But not Jesus! In a very great motion picture of almost a generation ago, Baron Rothschild was being importuned by a group of his closest friends. England was in a desperate condition, and the old Baron was determined to throw in his massive fortune, in an effort to stem the tide and rescue the Empire. "But one man can't save England," one of his friends exclaimed, hoping to dissuade him. "One man can try," said Roths child, quietly, as if the matter were settled. As a nutter of fact, Jesus' vig orous cleansing of the Temple did not put an end to the grafting The probabilities are that the mon ey changers were back withir an hour, and the dove-sellers had a new stock for sale the next morning. Meanwhile, Jesus had taken a road that led to a cross! But the story did not end in the Temple courtyard. Nor did it end on Calvary. Nor has it ended yet! There is an amazing immortality in truth, justice, and mercy! Blessed is the man who is wise enough to know who to offend! In a certain Texas city a great commotion had been rasied over a matter that involved some serious moral considerations. A group of powerful business men of the town was backing a proposition that promised generous profits, and questionable morals. One of the pastors was in consultation with one of his important laymen "If you come out against this proposal," the layman said, in all honesty, "you are going to offend some of the biggest men in (his city. You'd better be very careful." "Yes, I know you are correct," the preacher answered. "But if I do not come out against it I am very sure I will offend my Lord, and if I have to choose between a little group of big men, and the one whom God himself approved, then I guess I'll have to take my stand against these fellows." It would have been easy, I suppose, for a lot of us to have visited the Temple court, seen the shameless trafficking, and gone on our way saying, "Somebody ought to do something." But know- ing something ought to be done, and then doing nothing, was with Jesus an impossibility. I once received a letter from someone who described to me a very evil situation which existed in our town. "When are you preachers going to have courage enough to do something! Get in there and fight, and I, for one, will stand by you." And it was an anonymous letter! The help of those who are afraid to sign their names is of very little help. Certainly it cannot be trusted in an emergency. All too many of us .want other people to be courageous in our behalf! Wellsville News Sacred Music Concert Due At Baptist Church No Violation To Sell Negro A Home In White District By W. B. RAGSDALE JR. WASHINGTON (AP)-The National Association of Real Estate Boards has made it clear—for the first time—(hat it is no violation of the realtors code of ethics to sell a Negro family a home in a previously all-white neighborhood. Until about 15 years ago, the NAREB code of ethics specified that a realtor should not sell to a nonwhite person in an all-white neighborhood. The change in view is evident in a revision of the code and an association book interpreting it, distributed boards. to local real estate As revised, Article 5 of the code of ethics now reads: "The realtor should not be instrumental in introducing into a neighborhod a character of property or use which will clearly be detrimental to property values in that neighborhood." The NAREB book interpreting the code was distributed to local boards early this year—the first lime this had been done. One case, illustrating Article 5, involved the sale of a house in an all-white neighborhood to a nonwhite buyer. The realtor was taken before the local board's committee on professional standards. He contended that since the words "occupancy" and "race" formerly in the code had been removed many years ago this demonstrated an intent to "exclude any such considerations from the article," The book said the realtor was found innocent of unethical conduct and concluded that occupancy is not to be considered as a factor in interpreting the phrase "character of property or use." The bok was prepared by the NAREB committee on profession- al standards over a period of three years. NAREB has no day-to-day enforcement powers over local boards. However, each local group pledges to abide by the code of ethics and flagrant violations could result in expulsion. The code wai first adopted in 1913, THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, March 15, 1963 REVIVAL Church of Nazarene Special Musicians MARCH 6 thru 17 7:30 p.m. Each Evening BATTER-UP!
