CORNELL NEW YORKl Aue. 8. ifl ! ha w borrowed human lanrua?e. Skeptic: "How could a good God have created or allowed so much! evil in the world?" Believer: "God decided to give men freedom of choice. That necessarily means freedom to doisonathIng ?wre than human, but the wrong thing." That's a sample of the frank, give-and take religious discussion which was completed this week in one of the summer's most unusual series of church services. Modeled on the dialogues of the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, the series has produced some remarkably plain talk about the ordinary (doubter's "roadblocks to faith." The pro-and-con discourses have been held Sunday nights for the past five weeks in New York's Protestant Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine. IN LEADING ROLES The Very Rev. Dr. James A. Pike, dean of the cathedral, and Rev. John M. Rkumm, head of Columbia University's department of religion, have alternately played the roles of skeptic and believer. Here are a few .abbreviated excerpts, of the questions posed by the skeptic stationed with a microphone in the congregation, and the answers given by the believer standing in the pulpit: SKEPTIC: Isn't i-eligiort unscientific? Since it deals with the mysterious, isn't it becoming less important as fence reveals more of the .unknown?" ' BELIEVER: Religion deals know why," science only with the "know how." Science can release atomic energy, but it can't say when it's right to use it. We may do amazing things with calculating machines, but we can never invent one that will answer the questionwhy a calculating machine? SKEPTIC: Take the virgin birth. That's something a scientifically 'trained person would find very difficult to accept. BELIEVER: For 1900 years, the image of the virgin birth has been the most effective way to preserve from distortation the truth about the divinity and humanity of our Lord. Men's words and explanations pass with time but. this medium of communication abides. Since in the incarnation, God was trying to say something, maybe this was the best way to do it. TKats why I believe in the virgin birth historically. SKEPTIC: But science gives us precise and definite results. Religion is so vague and personal. BELIEVER: True, precision more readily at lower levels. For example, it's easier to be precise about chemistry than psychology. SKEPTIC: But does it make any real difference how people behave whether they accept this dubious hypothesis of the existence of God? " ' - BELIEVER: For everyone, there is something that is ultimate, basic, and that is God. For some people, their God is themselves. The real question then is what kind of God. SKEPTIC: I don't like these man-like descriptions of God. Isn't God above that? BELIEVER: We have to speak in some form, some analogy. We V Or, Ctroe VlV J PLATE CEPflinS FHOMPT.

That's borrowing language from economics. God is noi someuung less. SKEPTIC: Granting I already accept Christian ethics, I can go along living just as good a life without going to church. BELIEVER: You remind me of a man who was heir to a great fortune Who was content to live on the inherited capital, without doing anything to replenish it. SKEPTIC: Timid souls, may need ' church fellowship, but doesn't it take more courage to strike out on one s own? BELIEVER: Assume one can be a Christian by himself, why do it the hard way? There's such a thing as a self-educated man. But a man would be foolish to throw over the advantage . of scnoois just to prove his courage. SKEPTIC: I can worship God just as well on the golf course or driving through the countryside as I can in church. BELIEVER: A isn't really a question of whether you can, but whether you do. In a sense, you couldi work at" golf while in church muse on the best shot for approaching a certain hole. But most golfers would consider that a feeble substitute for the real experience. SKEPTIC: Speaking of evil, couldn't an all-powerful God have arranged it so we all do the right thing. BELIEVER: Yes, He could God Chose freedom as the most rewarding possibility for us. SKEPTIC: But what about wars, in which so many innocent people are involved entirely apart ! from their own wills. BELIEVER: Just as God decided man should be free, not an automaton, he decided man Was to be social, not isolated, that he was to work out his destiny in inter-relationships with other free beings. Freedom .means the possibility of hurting others.

SKEPTIC: I don't see that Christianity has the answer to eviL i. -'l-r:-:': ' -. I BELIEVER: Christianity does not have a complete explanation, but it has an answer. Christianity does not avoid tragedy in life, but it takes men beyond tragedy. It affirms that despite evil men do to, themselves or others, or the pain that 'fortuitous circumstances -bring, God still reigns and his mercies are sure. ; mm, i i ,in i , mi iii . I ,.r.
