Sunday School Lesson John Brown Said Lots After Death to say before you By ROY L. SMITH The Uniform Sunday School lesson for April 14: "CHRIST IS R I S E N," Mark 15:42 through 16:8. One does not need to endorse all that old John Brown of Kansas did, to appreciate the profound significance of at least one thing he said. As the hangman was adjusting the noose about his neck, preparing to execute him, he asked Brown, "Is there anything you would like die?" To this t h e old man replied, "I will have a good deal more to say after I am dead." And if the history books are to be trusted, the ok' man kept h i r word. In the city of .SMITH London there is one of the most grotesque scenes to be witnessed anywhere on this earth. At every meeting of the governing board of the London Lying-in Hospital a strange figure is wheeled up to the table, as though it might be one of the voting members. Jeremy Bentham, one of the greatest of all the English political and economic scientists, left a will bequeathing all his property (a very great fortune) to the hopsital, on the condition that his skeleton, appropriately clothed in the suit he always meetings of the be placed at the For Fast Results READ and USE IJIIE WANT ADS Phone CH 2-4700 wore to the board, should board's table at the point where he always sat. A death mask was made immediately after his demise, and this adds a type of reality to the ritual. And for more than a hundred years the secretary of the Board has entered in the minutes, "Jeremy Bentham present, but not voting." Those who know, however, say that Bentham's influence has turned the tide on scores of occasions, when some matter has been hotly debated, and opinion has been sharply divided. Though he has been dead since 1832, he continues to be the I most influential member on the i board. On Friday night Christ lay jdead in his tomb. Throughout ! Saturday he continued dead. On Sunday morning he was met, alive! Evil's triumph lasted jusl :hat long! When Pilate ordered his death, and when the soldiers had nailed him to the cross, they had all done their utmost. There was nothing more any of them coulc do. He was out of their hands And then it was that he was seen alive! There is a point past which malice, hatred, jealousy, and vi ciousness cannot go. And it is exactly at that spot that Christ and Christianity come back to life. In the 17th century the Japa nese government declared war on the Christian faith which ha< only recently been introduced by Dutch missionaries. For 300 years the faith was un der the ban. Then, in 1870, under the enlightened leadership of the Meiji Emperor the ban was lift ed, and there came up out from the underground tens of thous ands of Christians who had sur vived. When the Red Chinese took over in 1949, it appeared that the Christian Church in China was oomed. The Christian colleges were dismantled and destroyed. Christian churches were pro- aned, and destroyed. Christian pastors were martyred, and the Christians disap- reared underground. It is impossible to declare, with any complete accuracy, exactly what the status' of the Christian movement in China may be at he present moment. But in increasing mass of evi- lence indicates that the Christian Church is far from dead — that has only been driven underground! And resurrection. it is awaiting its "Truth, crushed to earth, will rise again." There is an element of immorality about justice, mercy, and ruth. They may go into eclipse 'or a time, but they always e» icrience a resurrection. There has been a certain kind of morbid curiosity on the part of many who have persisted in asking, "What kind of body did Jesus have following his resurrection?" And, if the question could be answered with certainty, it would be interesting. But the most important fact about the resurrection of Jesus is not the physical composition of his. post-resurrection body. The crux of the matter appears in .the fact that the ideals he preached, the principles he lived, the promises he made, and the challenges he issued, have all survived! Jesus Christ, risen and alive, is the greatest single factor in the politics of the world today. The teachings he gave insist on obtruding themselves in government, industry, morals, and even in scientific adventure. As the old guide said to me once, as he pointed to a painting of Jesus showing through the ancient fresco, "He always comes back doesn't he?" Children's Association To Meet LAWRENCE, Kan.
