2 -Saturday, Hay 22,19t5 Kedfands Daily facts Presbyterian theologians offer statement of faith Religion In America By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International Six years ago, the United Presbyterian Church asked a group of scholars to draw up "a brief contemporary statement o£ faith" that would make basic Christian beliefs intelligible to s p a c e-age men and women. After much consultation and rewTiting, the Presbyterian theologians have produced a document which will be presented to the denomination's general assembly during its current (May 20-26) session at Columbus, Ohio: It seems likely to provoke brisk debate, since it says some things about the Bible which will not go down easily with conservative Presbyterians who believe that the words of scripture are the words of God, and therefore totally without error. The proposed new confession of faith affirms that "God's word is spoken to his church today where the scriptures are faithfully preached and attentively read in dependence on the guidance of the holy spirit..." But it goes on to say that: "The words of the scriptures are the words of men, conditioned by the language, thought-forms and literary fash ions of the places and times at which they were written. They reflect views of life, history and the cosmos which were tlien current, and the understanding of them requires hterary and historical scholarship." It acknowledges that the Bible contains a "variety" of views on many different subjects, from the origin of the universe to the propriety of eating certain foods. This does not indicate that the Bible is an unreliable or self- contradictory book. It simply "shows that God has communicated with men in diverse cultural situations." For Christians, there is a simple yardstick for resolving any conflict between BibUcal texts: The Bible is always to be interpreted in the hght of the teachings of Jesus Christ, "the word of God incarnate ... the one sufficient revelation of God." If the old testament prescribes "an eye for an eye," but Jesus commands, "love your enemies," it is to the latter that Christians look for guidance. The most eloquent passages of the proposed new confession are those which attempt to tell who Jesus was and what He accomplished for mankind. "In Jesus of Nazareth true humanity was realized once for all," it says. "Jesus, a Palestinian Jew, lived among His own people and shared their needs, temptations, joys, and sorrow. He expressed the love of God in word and deed and became a brother to all kinds of sinful men. But His complete obedience led Him into conflict with his people. His life and teaching judged their goodness, religious aspirations and national hopes. Many rejected Him and demanded His death. "In givmg Himself freely for them he took upon Himself the judgment under which all men stand convicted. God raised Him from the dead, vindicating Him as Messiah and Lord. The victim of sin became victor, and in Him man is victorious over sin and death.. .The risen Christ is the savior of all men. Those joined to Him by faith are set right with God and commissioned to serve as his reconcil- mg community." Teniple Baptists to hold rally, groundbreaking Groundbreaking services will be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Temple Baptist church, Cypress and Redlands boulevard. Following the evening ground breaking services for a new sanctuary, a bond rally will be held in preparation for the selling of $200,000 in bonds. The sanctuary, when completed, will accommodate 800 worshippers. Underneath the structure will be a complete daylight basement providmg space for a fellowship hall and edu cational facilities. The Bond rally will be under the direction of Thomas Chaney of the Guaranty Bond and Securities Corp. It is through this company that the church has is.sucd the bonds. The proceeds will be used in the building program. A week of intensive effort to sell the bonds will follow the rally so as not to delay the progress of construction of the new facilities.

What is the highest source of authority in religion, the voice of the living church, or the Holy Scriptures? A. The clear answer is found in 2 Timothy 3:15-17. ("Confraternity of Christian Doctrine" translation:) "For from thy infancy thou hast known the Sacred Writings, which are able to instruct thee unto salvation by the faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scnpiure is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproving, for correcting, for instructing in justice; that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work." The plain meaning of this passage is that Scripture is indeed the highest source of authority in religion. This means of course that the "living voice of the church" in each generation is NOT the highest authority. Holy Scripture, being God's divine and Infallible written Word, can not change through the ages. But frail and sinful men often do change and fall into sin and errors of many kinds, including religious errors. Some religious people today claim that the highest authority is the living church, the official declarations of their clergy or leaders or supreme head. This is a fundamental and far-reaching religious mistake and contradiction of God's word. The Central church of Christ, 1000 Roosevelt Road, Redlands (phone 793-5670), stands firmly upon the monumental truth of God set forth in 2 Timothy 3:15-17 as to the source of highest religious authority.
