There is a disposition on the part of many people to think that faith is one of the lesser virtues, or qualifications. "I do not take anything on faith," says the realist. "I believe in the things I can prove, and nothing more." But the man who says that is kidding himself. All of us, including the realists, live every day on things we cannot prove. Years ago I was engaged in a series of debates, on the general subject of religion, with Clarence In the course of his address he sometimes said, "I cannot believe in anything of which I cannot get a picture. Now I can't get a picture of God, and I know of no one who can give me such a picture. That's why I cannot believe in God. One evening, in my rebuttal, I called Mr. Darrow's attention to the fact that neither could he get a picture of abstract justice. He could give me, and I could give him, innumerable illustrations of instances in which justice had been done, or had failed to be done. But as for a picture of justice itself, there was none. And yet Mr. Darrow was giving his life in a great way, battling for justice in the courts. The 23rd psalm is one of the most exalted tributes to faith in all of human language. But it is more. It is a declared readiness to act on the basis of belief. If I have faith in my doctor- real faith—I take his medicine. I do not insist that he shall give me a chemical analysis of the pills he has prescribed. I do not require him to take down the books and cite for me the authorities. I do not ask of him that he shall give me a bond, guaranteeing me against any possible mistake in taking his medicine. If I believe in him, I take it! t's as simple as that. There is the old story of the astronomer who noticed a slight deflection at a certain point in he photograph. He knew that such a deflection could be caused )y but one thing — an unidenti- ied planet. He never saw that planet hrough the eye of his telescope, which was not a large one. But rom that point on his calcula- ions were based on the assumption that a planet of a certain size >vas there. Many years later a more power- 'ul and more sensitive telescope >rought it into view. That was a bit gratifying, but it did not make he scientist's calculations any more reliable. No man has ever seen the nucleus of an atom, but the whole of nuclear physics is built up on he assumption that the nucleus s a fact. And that assumption has never let the scientist down! Again and again the scientist las to launch out on faith. But n the scientist's vocabulary it s called "a working hypothesis." That is, it is a theory upon which NEVER BEFORE such precision accuracy, such lasting beauty, such fine craftsmanship at this low price! from • Over 50 quality inspections • Luxuriously finished cases • Rugged dependability • Distinctive styles • A product of Bulova • Precision-jeweled movements • Electronically timed NITA 17 jewel precision movement, shock resistant, unbreakabln mainspring. $19,95 MAINSAIL 17 jewels, waterproof', shock resistant, unbreakable mainspring, luminous dial. $17.19 See our complete selection of .'superbly styled Caravelle fine jeweled watch from only $12.95 ROBERT EDMISTON STORES, INC. Prices Plus Tax he proposes to work until ho discovers it will not work. When iic fails to make it work, he reconstructs his theory. And that is exactly the way religion works. It proceeds and acts upon the basis of the best reasoned faith available. When a better reasoned faith appears, the religionist accepts it and begins to live according to the principles it declares. No one of us has time to work out all the formulae for life. We have ).o depend upon other people's experience and experiments. There was the man, for example, who was dtcrmincd to be an "independent thinker." He bought a home that was already equipped with a well, but it was one he had not dug. He therefore dug a new one alongside the old one. and got the same water. But at least he was "independent." WELBORN'S ELECTEHC SERVICE CH 2-4332—1220 E. 7th It is just here that the great teachers of religion render their greatest service. They dig the wells, and we drink from them. Their reliability as teachers depends upon the accuracy with which they interpret and explain the priciples of living. The divinity of Jesus rests back, in the final analysis, upon the accuracy with which he diagnosed the ills of life, and the reliability with which he prescribed for those ills. If it can be shown, at any point, that he misinterpreted the basic principles of life, all our doctrines concerning his divinity would not save it. Scientists are accustomed to decry "the truth that comes by revelation," as though the truth that can be demonstrated in the laboratory is somehow superior to the truth one discovers by experience. truth is true, and there is no rebellion or warfare among truths. If a great religious truth sounds improbable, then all we need to do is to put it to the test, live by it and estimate the results. Jesus put it very conclusively: "By their fruits ye shall know." 8 THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, April 26, 1963 A Complete Line Of P&ATT & LAMBERT Paints and Varnishes NUZMAN LUMBER 113 E. 1st CH 2-1572 Now see all w it your Chevrolet dealer's Try out all the things these four entirely different kinds of Chevrolet Super Sports have going for you, and your decision won't be whether but which.
