Patterson to Wed Dr. Fred L Norton Weds Monessen Man Tuesday Evening at First Christian Church At Church Ceremony "It Kood neither to cat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbletli." -- Romans 14:21., Do Nothing to.Extremes HIGHLIGHTS OP THE SUNDAY SCHOOL, LESSON i-tS (The Interna tion al Uniform Leason on the above topic for Feb. 19 is Amos 6:1-6; I Peter 2: 11, 12; 4: T-5, the Golden Text being Romans 14: 21, "It is good neither to cat flestt, nor to drink wine, nor any thing- whereby thy brother stufnbleth.") By NEWMAN CAMPBELL IN THE FIRST reference In the lesson, Amos 6:1-6, it speaks of people that "that He upon beds of ivofy, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall: "That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David: "That drink wine In bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments; but they are not grieved for the affliction or Joseph. 1 " Eating: the lambs out of the fiocK and the calves out of the stall seemed very extravagant indeed to the shepherds of Israel, whose livelihood" came from their flocks. The idea of drinking wine from bowls, too, is quite extreme, as if wine glasses or goblets did not hold enough for these old winebibbers. Peter begs the early Christians to be careful how they act and not to be unseemly In their talk or actions, because ho is afraid the unconverted ones will not think much of the Christians. "Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul: "Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against evildoer:, they may by your good works, -which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visita- Uc" " In other words, Christians are to.set a good example to those outside the church, so that they may the more readily accept the teachings of Jesus. Temperance, of courac, does not mean jnst abstaining from alcoholic drinks. It means that we should too much or speak Copyright, W9, King Fe*lar« Syndicate. Inc. hastily and without thought, or do anything to excess. In the days of the disciples'and before that there was not the 1 danger in drinking too much or even in eating too much that there is today. Food was simple for most of the people, and they worked hard outdoors with primitive tools, and needed more food to keep them warm and fit. There was not the danger to others, either, when persons drank too much that there is in this machine age, when one befuddled with drink may run someone down in his automobile, or get himself killed because he la too unsteady upon his feet arid cannot think fast enough to get out of the way of train or speeding auto. Or, working with machinery, a man may get himself caught and badly hurt. There are so many more ways in which a drunken person today may injure himself and others that it wise to "look not on the wine when it is red." as the Bible says. Statistics prove that drunken drivers and drunken pedestrians cause far too many accidents. In Proverbs 23:20, it says: "Be not among the wiricbibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: "For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty; and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags." And in verses 31 and 32 of the same chapter it reads: "Look not upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his color in the cup, when it movcth itself aright. "At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stlngeth like an adder." Considering all the misery excessive drinking" brings, would you not think that men and vromen would abstain ? Homes broken, children without proper food and clothes because a parent spends the money on drink. Jeremiah, the ancient prophet, tells of taking some young men to a house and setting wine before them, and saying unto them, "Drink ye wine." "But," they said, "we will drink no wine 1 : for Jonadab the son of Rcchab our father commanded us saying, 'Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye nor your sons forever 1 ."
