The Pharisee who insisted that he was not as bad as the publican standing in the comer is only one such example, We've had a rash of such comparison morality in our country, with cities in various parts of the nation insisting that they're not as bad as cities in other sections, The truth is that such comparisons are illogical and illusory. They tend to excuse a social sin or defect an honest judgment. To have indulged in a moral indiscretion is not to be justified because one's neighbor is involved two indiscretions. It really doesn't matter whether we're worse or better than some other section. What matters is simply that there must be some brave men trying to meet the problems, some heroic souls who are holding the forces of violence in leash, some magnificent minds that continue to be at work. Whatever the city or community, we require: * More Initiative social problems and apathy. * More staying with the problem Instead of running away from in meeting less public it. More statesmanship In pontifical affairs and less petty, miserable backbiting. More realistic planning and lien make-do substitutes. • More leadership from responsible citizens of all races before ruthless forces capture the frustrated. More open discussion between individuals and groups so that communication can exist within our own neighborhood. * More imaginative courage and less pathetic retreating in confusion. Scripture is filled with mstaneea of the folly of trying to indulge in such petty comparison. Jesus took hold of great moral absolutes such as "Thou shalt not kill," and "Thou shall not •teal.' 5 His listeners were feeling com. pacent and comfortable. None of them had murdered a neighbor or robbed his purse. This easy ipiety was punctured by the moral insight of a positive action. This is no time for any dty anywhere to boast it is better than another, or to condemn a city by saying that it is worse than another. What is needed is a kind of moral discipline that keep* us looking at ourselves with the quality of honesty that comes from a precise and heroic faith. As Paul Seherer has written, "We proclaim a Gospel that didn't get out of a feather bed to yawn its way sleepily through the earth; it got down oft crosses, came stalking up out of fire, with the smell of flames on it." If we must compare, lets compare ourselves to the best FOR THE NEW '63 LARK Big Car Comfort At Compact Prices B« Sura, Set And Driva Tht New LARKS and HAWKS Before You Buy JOHNSON MOTOR CO.
