6 GdltibutQ Riftfli ^^ll ^^lgsbuffl;. IH^ Soturday, July 7, 1973 Bible Texts Apply To Watergate United Press International Vice President Spifo T. Agnew and Sen. Sam J. Ervin, t>-N,C.*, recently got into a Bible - quoting contest over Watergate. Of God and Man Neither of them chose the most apt biblical texts that could be applied to this affair. The Mosaic Law, as recorded in the 19th Chapter of the Book of Leviticus, gets right down to brass tacks about it: "You shall not steal; you shall not cheat or deceive a fellow-countryman. You shall not swear in God's name with intent to deceive... "You shall not pervert justice, either by favoring the poor or by subservience to the great. You shall judge your fellow-countryman with strict justice." There are many other biblical passages, written thousands of years ago, that sound as though they might have come from current newspaper editorials about conflicting testimony and evident perjury at various Watergate hearings and trials. Strike Dumb Lying Lips... "Strike dumb the lying lips which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously!" cried the Hebrew poet who wrote the 31st Psalm. And the Book of Proverbs warns: "There are six things the Lord hates; yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, lying tongue, hands that shed, innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift to run to mischief, a false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among the people." The technology of bugging had not been perfected in the time of King Solomon, but spying and eavesdropping were very familiar, one of the proverbs attributed to Solomon Iwarns: " Do not disclose another's secret." Stilt another bit of Solomonic wisdom might be interpreted as a caution against courtiers who try to "protect" a ruler against disturbing knowledge: "The fawning mouth brings ruin." A Few Other Tests Here are a few other biblical texts whose application to various persons and-or episodes of Watergate you can decide for yourself: "A treacherous blow cuts both ways. The man who digs a pit will fall into it; he who sets a snare will be caught by it. On the man who does evil, evil will recoil." (Eeeteslistieus TH-. & *>.) "Any adviser will offer counsel, but tome are governed by self-interest ... stick to the advice your own heart gives you; no one can be truer to you than that. A man's conscience often forewarns him better thin seven watchmen perched on a watchtower." (fcccleslasticus 37:7; 1344). Church Group Logs Record In Members S. LOUIS, Mo.The International Lutheran Laymen's League, sponsor of the "Lutheran Hour" and co-sponsor of the television program "This is the life," has set a record for membership with 158,486 members In the United States and Canada.

Mueller, who is retiring at the end of this month after 25 years with the LLL, said membership contributions topped the 8800,000 mark for the first time, with an average gift from each member of $5.06.

But to experienced fingers, each line has a meaning, and by plugging the right cord in the right place, a miracle In communication is established. Much in life seems hopelessly Jumbled, Yet so many of our problems can be solved if we'cut through the maze of our personal "tangled wires" and get to the heart of the matter, To do this, we need to know what is essential and what is non-essential. We need a sense of values, In this complicated age, it is hard to simplify things. It is difficult to grasp and understand those basic precepts which have always endured and which will serve us In the years to come. Go to the church of your choice next Sunday, Listen with open ears, mind, and heart. It may mark the beginning of a new, uncluttered channel of communication for you.
