S, EACH YEAR, CLAIM Foregiveness Cited as Means of Obtaining Release From Sinning. The sermon delivered Sunday morning at the Church of Christ by the pastor, D. L. Kratz, was the fifth in a series of "Great Christian Beliefs." Mr. Kfatz illustrated the loss to society caused by sin: "Crime costs America 13 billion dollars each year," he said. "We pay it in increased prices in everything we buy. Wo business is run without some Kind of insurance costs against somebody's killing and stealing, or other'breaking of the ten commandments. Is 'human nature redeeem- able?' ' "Forgiveness in the Scriptural sense'means release from a state of sinning. God believed that life could be redeemed' and gave His Son to that end; When God's love rules human life, the law is fulfilled and man is saved from a life of sinning." "When Sinners Repent," 2nd Cor. 7, 4-10, was the theme of the morning and afternoon services at the Trinity a n d Calvary Lutheran churches Sunday. "The Apostle Paul was very much concerned about the spiritual condition of the church at Corinth," the Rev. O. L. N. Wigdahl declared. "He had learned that a certain sin was being tolerated by the congregation without a protest or the exercise of Christian discipline. Instead of being in sorrow because of this sin in their midst the congregation was rather puffed up about it. In his letter to the Corinthian church, Paul rebukes them severely because of their impenitence. "This exercise of discipline by the apostle accomplished its desired effect in repentance for their sin and a return to the exercise of Christian discipline in the congregation. Paul is filled with joy in his heart when he learns of the repentance of the congregation and writes his second letter to tell them about the great joy that has filled his heart on hearing the good news. "Paul rejoices because their repentance was marked by a true Godly sorrow because they had sinned against God. Paul tells them that a sorrow because of the effects or consequences of sin never leads to true repentance and saving faith but leaves the sinner in his sin and guilt. That such a condition could prevail in the church at Corinth should be a serious admonition to every Christian and to every Christian congregation to repent of sin and to be ever on guard against its insidious effect upon the Christian life." The afternoon service was attended by a group who finds it very difficult to attend morning services and will be continued for its convenience. "Reality" Discussed. "Reality" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, Sunday. The Golden Text was from 1 Peter 1:25, "The word of the Lord en- dureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by - Mary Baker Eddy. "One of the Bible citations read: "And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people." (Matt. 9:35.) Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: 'Jesus' works established his claim to the Messiahship. In reply to John's inquiry, 'Arc thou he that should come,' Jesus returned an affirmative reply, recounting his works instead of referring to his doctrine, confident that this exhibi- itor.of the divine power to heal would fully answer the question." (P. 131). James Miller Goes Back to Naval Post James R. Miller left Sunday night for San Diego, where he will resume his post in the United States navy after a 10 day furlough spent with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Miller, who live on a farm seven miles southwest of Mason City. A farewell party for Mr. Miller was held at his parents' home Friday evening. Approximately 75 relatives and friends were in attendance. Worship Series Being Planned at Local Church Beginning Sunday morning, the Church of Christ will hold a series of worship and preaching services commemorating the last week of Christ's ministry.
