One of America's largest Protestant denominations, the 81.1 million member Lutheran Church (Missouri Synod), has been brought to the brink of schism by bitter internal dissension over that question. At its recent national convention in New Orleans, a fundamentalist majority headed by President J. A. 0. Preus rammed through a aeries of resolutions which commit the denomination firmly and un* equivocally to the literal "inerrancy" of the scriptures. This means in principle that every pastor, seminary professor and ' member of the Missouri Synod is required to uphold every word of the Bible Church SERVICES ririt Bible MUilonary — 1591 E. Losey.

Tietjea On Spat This dogmatic stand, which the convention took by i N majority, may place att intolerable burden on the consciences of some Missouri Lutherans who revere the Bible but cannot regard It as Infallible in every detail. Immediately on the spot are President John Hetjen and a majority of the faculty of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, the denomination's largest institution for training of pastors. These scholars would be regarded in most major Protestant bodies ai conservative in their attitude toward the scriptures, whose inspiration they accept without question. But they do not believe it is necessary to read as literal history Old Testament passages that may be intended—like the New Testament parables of Jesus-to convey spiritual insights through the medium of stories.

Morning Holiness Chapel Corner Arnold and Summit Jeanrtie is stilt at the age when she can look at life unafraid. She's a happy and trusting little girl, and she is sure Daddy will catch her at the bottom of the slide. As we grow older, our fears accumulate and sometimes they rule our lives. We grow afraid of losing our job. our health or our possessions. There Is fear of being "different." We often go along with things that we know are wrong, just because we're afraid to take a stand. Many of our fears have no foundation. Yet we go through needless suffering, worrying about things that will never happen. The Bible says, "If God is for us, who can be against us?" Through the Church, we receive assurance of God's constant love and protection in all our adversities. And we come to understand the comforting Truth •.. "Perfect love casteth out fear." AFRAID!
