(UPD- Burglars broke into a supermarket during the weekend and car ried off more than $22,000 in cash, according to owner Al Pontius, which Graham said there would be seating for 135,000. The stadium normally holds 92,000. If Soldier Field is filled to capacity, Graham said, it will be ;he largest meeting he has held. He warned Monday night that ;he "world stands on the brink of. disaster" while Christianity is divided by strife, pettiness, greed, jealousy and lethargy. "The average American Christian is not living up to the standard set by the early church, One of the reasons why other ideolo- jies are making such inroads in the world today is that Christi ans have failed to accept seriously the ideology proclaimed by Jesus Christ," the evangelist said. He said that "historians may conclude" that the increase in church attendance and in,gifts to churches are "meaningless." The "joy and thrill" of New Testament Christianity is absent in the modern variety. "There i, only the dying ember of what used to be a mighty flame for Christ," he said. Graham said he has found that the average Christian expects "only a life of ultimate failure and defeat—one hour failing anc the . next hour repenting, beginning again, only to fail again." He said early Christians had no churches, no Bibles, "yet they turned the world upside down." Graham said present day Christians have "failed to pay the price of discipleship." He called for "spiritually mature Christians who are not only professing their faith in Christ but are living it every day." Grills Acts For Default Judgment •INDIANAPOLIS (UPI) — State Sen.
