Hok' R e a d t h e B i b 1 c "Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me." John 5:39. A guest on a radio quiz program showed remarkable ability in answering difficult questions on almost every subject. But he failed miserably on the mostsimplefact questions based on the Bible. This man is typical of too many of the pleasant congenial folks that we' meet daily. They are not interested in the Bible because they nave not really discovered the Bible for themselves. Friend, have discovered the Bible for yourself? Discovering the Bible does not mean to become Interested merely in some outward phase of the Bible. Robert Milliakan, noted American scientist, said, "I consider an intimate knowledge of the Bible an indispensible qualification of an educated man." This is splendid as far as it goes, but It is not enough. It is not really discovering the Bible. A prisoner confined in "The Place of Skulls" in Madrid for 33 years scratched some of the findings of his Bible reading on the prison wall with a naiL He discovered that the Bible contains 3 million, 556 thousand, 480 letters, 773 thousand 746 words, 31 thousand 173 verses, 1 thousand 189 chapters and 66 books. He also discovered that the word Lord occurs 1 thousand 853 times. That man must have read his Bible carefully to gather all those facts; but if that were all he had found, he would have failed to discover the Bible itself. He did however discover also this:' the most inspiring promises are to be found in John 6:37, where Jesus says, "Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out"; and in John 14:2, "In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." And in John 3:16, "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." And in Matthew 11:28, "Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give yourest," He had actually begun to discover the Bible. Luther also made this great discovery of the Bible when he read and believed the words: "The just shall live by faith." How about you, my friend? If your conscience plagues you; if happiness becomes shortlived and a driving restlessness seems to take hold of your inner self, if real inner peace seems to be unattainable; you can discover what is ailing you by turning to Psalm 32. It is your sin which is at the seat of your trouble. When you have made that discovery, it will lead you a step further, for that same Psalm tells you that there is forgiveness with God. And if you want to know how you can obtain that forgiveness, the Bible will tell you that it is through Christ and through Christ alone, for "God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them." Jesus Himself tells us that the Scriptures point to Him as the one way to eternal life. Let me emphasize that you will never really discover the Bible until you have discovered that you are a sinner, and that Jesus is your Savior. And then you will have strength and peace that you will find nowhere else. Pastor Donald W.

COMPLIMENTS OF STEEL PARTS CORPORATION BERRYMAN PIKE I How To Master Baffletalk I By Emily Louise Conrad j From the platform the minister] addressed the Church and Society study group: "Action - ori« nted orchestration of innovative inputs, generated by escalation of meaningful indigeneous, decision -making dialogue," he solemnly advised, "can maximize the vital thrust toward a nonalienated and viable infrastructure." Well, nobody ever claimed that the modern socioreligious language was easy to understand. In fact, laymen probably aren't expected to understand they're supposed to be impressed. But if, instead you are frustrated by the non-meaning of most of what is spoken in the name of religion these days, take heart! You too, can master baffletalk and even pratice it yourself. The trick is to combine perfectly good English words in such a way that the sytactical result guarantees that no coherent thought is expressed. Even the busiest minister or the laziest layman can become an expert at baffletalk by following these simple instructions. Below are listed some of the words most frequently heard in church groups today: O. relevant, 1. indigeneous, 2. nonalien- - ated, 3. meaningful. 4. action-oriented, 5. incremental, 6. normative, 7. multidimensional, 8. categorical, 9. contextual; 0. optimal, 1. innovative, 2. viable, 3. multilinked, 4. determinative, 5. decision-making, 6. anachronistic, 7. reciprocal, 8.in-depth, 9. eschatdlogical, and 0. feedback, 1. infrastructure, 2. syncretism, 3. dialogue, 4. maximization, 5. problem-complexes, 6. ecumenism, 7. hang-up^_8. tensions, 9. involvement. Now choose a three digit number—your area code or the last three figures of your zip code will do nicely. Match you number to the corresponding word in each list Thus, 680 becomes "normative,, indepth feedback,"and 749 is "multidimensional, determinative involvement." Memorize your phrase, but don't be in too big a hurry to use it i Remember you have sat in silent dismay for a long time. Ease into the action by asking the speaker how he proposes to achieve "incremental, eschatological syncretism," (592). This puts the burden on him to answer while you get your next phrase in mind. Don't bother to listen to his reply — a senseless question hardly deserves a sensible answer, so don't expect one. When you feel easy and comfortable using your new phrases, it is time to add a few more words which you will corrupt just a little bit. Don'tsay "channel," say "channelize;" Never use, "construct" as your verb, but as a noun; conversely, use "structure" as your verb —"... should structure this committee so that the power construct will be..." And don't object that something is "devious," protest its "contextual deviosity." Then as you are speaking smoothly and confidently (and more often) in the certain knowledge that what you can makes no sense whatever, begin to drop a few names. Be careful not to make it sound as though you are actually quoting any philosopher, living or dead, because somebody in your crowd may just possibly have read him. Instead, murmur, "Don't you agree with Kierkeguard?" "But you will remember that poor Bonhoeffer wrote from prison," Or, "How did tillich feel about this?" Of course, if the confusion compounded by your contribution to church-talk'becomes chaos, you can always ask the speaker to state in plain, simple one-syllable English words, exactly what he means. Chances are. he is just as confused as you are. Some Training May Be Harmful By LOUIS CASSELS UPI Religion Writer The view is widely held among parents that any religious training a child receives is bound to do him some good. But it doesn't necessarily work that way. Some kinds of religious tjateij^/ although well intended, may be very harmful to a child's spiritual development. Take, for example, the matter of prayer. Parents with any degree of personal faith usually make ah effort to teach their children to "say their prayers." It matters enormously bow a child is taught to think of prayer. A mistaken view of prayer, implanted or encouraged by parents, may caused a youngster to become an atheist in his teens. Son Rejects Belief In a recent issue of the Christian Herald, religious educator Better Garton Ulrich recounted the story of a mother "who couldn't comprehend why her college-age son had rejected belief in God. The mother "recalled fondly how, as a small child, her son had prayed with unquestioning faith that God would grant him a bicycle. It was obvious from the tone of her reminiscences that the parents, in buying him the bicycle, had deliberately encouraged the child to believe that if he only prayed believingly enough his prayers would be granted." This kind of "religious training" is dsastrous because it teaches a child to think of prayer as a letter to a heavenly Aanta Claus. It may work for a while, but sooner or later the child will pray for things the parents don't know about, or cannot provide. He will then conclude either that there is no God, or, worse, that God exists but doesn't love him any more. Even if a child should somehow escape this kind of disenchantment, he will never be able to grow into z mature religious faith so long as he thinks of God as a wish- granter. For any such concept gets the man-God relationship exactly backwards. Instead of seeing himself as the creature and servant of God, a child sees himself as the center of the universe, and sees God as a genie whose role is to protect and pleasehim. TermCanbe Pitfall ' Jesus habitually addressed God as "Father in heaven." The term can be a pitfall for children if they're allowed to form anthropomorphic images of God. But it is not difficult for parents to make clear that "even though God does not look like a man, he does deal with his human children in the manner of a loving father. This concept of God as father teaches a child to acknowledge his dependence on God and at the same time prepares him for the possibility, of getting no for an answer occasionally. "A child does not cease to love' and trust his parents merely because they sometimes refuse to give him what he wants," observes Miss Ulrich. A Family Life Crusade A "Family Life Crusade" will begin in Elwood this comingSun-. day, November 15. The "Family Life Crusade" is being planned by the Grace Baptist Chapel in conjunction with the Grace Baptist Church of Anderson. Guest speaker for the "Family Life Crusade will be Dr. Donald Camp, pastor of the Grace Baptist Church of Anderson. Dr. Camp has emphasized that one of the greatest needs in the cities of America is for the family unit to once again emphasize the basic prominence of the Christian principles as presented in New Testament Christianity. In a recent letter to more than 202 members of the Crusade Attendance Committee, Dr. Camp emphasized that no city is any stronger spiritually than the spiritual strength of the families within the city. All the services will be conducted in the Grace Baptist Chapel of Elwood, located at North A and 24th Streets. All evening services will begin at 7 p.m. Rev. Bob Richey, pastor of the Grace Baptist Chapel, has indicated that this is one way that all of us can work together to do something good and harmonious for the city of Elwood by attending this important "Family Life Crusade".
