There will be special music by the adult choir. "The Bible is recognized as one of the solid facts of Christianity," says Rev. L. S. Elliott. "It is not affected by -vhat men think, nor changed j when the opinions oC men change. \ Whatever the Bible was, the Bible is. j Men do not judge the Bible. Men j are judged by the Bible. The church today will do well to keep the Holy Bible as God's word and authority of life. The modern world today is man-centered. The Bible is God- centered. Historians write history by exalting what man did. The Bible writes history by saying what God did. The Bible reveals a spirit of unselfishness. The world today is selfish.

By NEWMAN CAMPBELL WHAT LESSON can we learn in the preaching of Peter, the fisherman, given us today ? There is no use praying, says Peter, if we are not willing to believe and to practice good works. We must love one another with pure hearts, he states, otherwise our prayers will not be heard. To love each other seems easy at first glance. We have no ill will toward anyone of any race or creed, we think. Then we have only to go into theworld and be knocked about by hurrying crowds, or to meet some one who is rude or disagreeable, and we- flare up and forget all about our "love" for one another. Jesus loved'us so much that He died for us. we are told. "He was reviled and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief." Yet God "so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son that he that believed on Him should be saved. "We all like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one. to his own way . . . He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a dumb sheep before the shearers is dumb, so-He open- eth not His mouth." We are quite apt to think that a person who will not "stand up for himself" is lacking in manli- less (or womanliness), but doesn't it take more courage to control the feelings Jind "cio good for evil" than to let our angry passions rise and quarrel ? "For what glory is it," asks Peter, "if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? But if. .when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God. "Christ also suffered for us. leaving: us on example, that ye should follow His steps: "Who, when- he was reviled, re He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgetn righteously." It is a good thing that shortly before Easter, when we celebrate the Risen Christ, we should dwell upon His life and what led up to His death--and on His sufferings. He went about doing good, but the Son of Man had not a place to lay His head. Peter may have felt rebellious as well as sad and lonely when Jesus was crucified, and felt that He should have saved Himself, but he came to realize that that cruel death was all part of the plan, and that in no other way could the Christian religion have been such a power for good in the world. No one is more honored in the world of men and women today than the one who gives up his life for others. Do you know of any who have so done ? The mother who saves her child an i loses her own life; the man who drowns or is killed that he may protect others--no matter how cynical and unbelieving in man's goodness people may be, they honor and revere such a one. A story is told about the United States Civil War. A band of gueril- las--Quantress' band--had been rioting. They had burned a town. The command was that they were to be shot on sight. They were captured and lined up to be shot. Just before the fatal shots were fired a man dashed through the bushes and cried. "Stop!" He said he was a member of the gang but had escaped. He pointed to a member of the gang and asked to take his place. "I'm single," he said, "while he has a wife and babies." This was done, and the man for whom the young chap had died buried his body. Years later, when he was a wealthy man, he erected a tall marble monument over the grave. Peter wrote his gospel to those early Christians who were being persecuted for the sake of their religion. He urged them to stand true no matter what martyrdom is to be theirs. But his words, as well as the example these brave people set, are an inspiration to us of this 20th century--nearly 2,000 years after they died for thcir faith. viled not again; when he suffered t I93P, by King Features Syndicate, Inc.
