Page Two Moral Failure Is Given Help Jesus specializes in helping individuals who have made a moral failure of life, declared the Rev. C. Arlin Heydon in his morning sermon yesterday in the first Baptist Church. "He helps people," he said in part, "to save them from that moral failure. Jesus befriended many such people in His earthly ministry. The fallen woman who annointed Jesus in the house of Simon the Pharisee was saved to a new life. . "Simon Peter, unstable, failing at the place he boasted of being the strongest, was saved, established by our Savior. The rich young ruler forms a tragic contrast with the many whom Jesus helped. He seemed a success by superficial standards but he lacked one thing His money managed him and he was a miserable moral failure Then, there was the self-righteous man who prayed, '1 thank God .* em not as other men.' He made i' Impossible for Jesus to help him. "The man to be commended is the one who prays humbly and sincerely, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner.' All the resources of heaven are available in the for giveness of such a one's sin, o establishing him in fellowship with God and the bringing of the power of God's spirit into the struggle on his side against sin and all the rea enemies of man." In the evening, he spoke on "Our Savior Who Calls You," describing Jesus as the "Savior splendid" who succeeds in everything he attempts Reasons To Id For Salvation Though it is contrary to all that human reason might expect, the IWord of God repeatedly and explicitly declares salvation to be an unmerited favor from God which is , made available as a gift to all men, said the Rev. R. S. Beal, jr., in his morning sermon yesterday in Grace Baptist Church. "From the human side," he added, "salvation is not conditioned by any kind of good works; man's only responsibility is to believe in the Son of God by whose substitu- tionary death salvation was made possible. Naturally, one asks 'Why does God save by grace? Why are rood works not required as a condition of salvation?' The Bible •resents a threefold answer. "First, men are said to be saved so that 'good works' may result. From a heart of unbelief if is impossible for any man's efforts to be pleasing to God. "Secondly, men are said to be saved for the sake of the benefits which accrue to them. Since it is not the will of God that men should perish to spend eternity in Hell, He has bestowed the priceless blessing of eternal life upon all Who believe. Thirdly, men are said to be saved so that in them God might- manifest His grace. Though this motive of God is supreme in the salvation of men, it is usually passed over unrecognized. "God's greatest purpose in salvation is nothing less than to demonstrate before all intelligent beings of 'the eternity to come the matchless grace which He manifested toward us in His cupera- bounding love."

W. H. Hedges pointed out in a sermon last night In Capitol Christian Church. "Proclaimed by the early Christians," he said in part, "the Jews thought this was blasphemv, the Romans called it inexcusable intolerance. Some today think it bigotry, but Jesus taught that He .was the way. "Peter declared there is no other name for salvation. Experience proves this faith of the early church is the only way of salvation. Christ is the gate to the Christian way. The gate is so narrow that pride, self-righteousness, all sin, must be left outside and on the inside is found cleansing through the blood Of Christ "The principles of Christ are the principles of the Christian way. These are reverence for the will of God, reverence for personality, no respect for persons, for all are worth dying for, serging men as servants of Christ the purpose of life and the motive of service, not self-seeking, not self glorification, not greed, but love. „ "The Holy Spirit is the helper on the Christian way, helping to play to serve, to grow in Christlikeness, to guide aright, to testify concern- Ing the grace of God. "The Christian way is the way of which none need be ashamed. Paul was glad to confess that he belonged to the way. Its destination, heaven, none need be ashamed of. Its companions uplift. Its activities give joy and satisfaction." o — Lesson Seen In Crosses The dramatic lesson exemplified In the three crosses of Calvary formed the subject of a sermon by the Rev. Harrison J.

It was a legend even then. folk. It is free-spending from the farthest-up reaches of Tombstone canyon, where U. S. Highway 80 crosses famous Bisbee hill at an altitude of more than 6,000 feet, down to the Lowell and Warren and other contiguous communities. And it especially is free-spending in Brewery Gulch, which has cone through more than one heyday. Juke boxes blare where once irofessors played pianos.

Brewery Gulch has little written history—most of what is told about it is legend, perpetuated by such colorful characters as Fred McKinney of the Brewery Gulch Gazette.

He had been given much latitude as to where he might put the post, as long as it was in the Huachuca mountains. H. L. (Pat) Hayhurst knows the story perhaps as well as anyone. Let him tell it in his own language: "Those Damned Apaches" Were To Be Tamed Captain Whitside's colonel Instructed him to select "some convenient location."

Vaughan Rock yesterdav in the First Southern Baptist Church. "Just as God made plans for the purifying of the heavens and the earth," he said in part, "He also made that plan for the lives of individuals. If the new birth is fiction we should not waste our time with it But Jesus says it is a fact and experience proves the truth of His statement. "How can a man be 'born again*? There are two births, the fleshly and the spiritual. By the first birth we are partakers of our parents but by the second birth we are partakers of God. One is of flesh, the other is of the spirit. "If language can be made to mean anything definite, the scrip tures teach an actual, literal new birth and not a change of the origi nal nature; not a moral reforma tion of the old nature. One coulc not use plainer language than the scriptures. 'As many as receivec Him to them gave Him the power to become the children of God, even to them that believed on His Name who were born not of blood noi the will of the flesh nor the will o: man but of God.' 'Except a man b( Dorn again he cannot see the kingdom of God.' That which is born o the flesh is flesh; and that which i: sorn of the spirit is spirit.' "The truth is the death, burial resurrection ot our Lord for the ."Paul, like us today," he said in part, "must have been ashamed of many thins* of his day and time. But there was one thing he was not ashamed of and that was the gospel of Jesus Christ. "St. Paul had found something that put meaning and significance into the whole of life: 'I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.' We should not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ in its insistence on the tragic sinfulness of man and his desperate need of interior salvation. If we have eyes to see anything today we ought to see that for which the gospel of Christ has i always been right about, man needing an interior change of heart. "There is no such thing as Inevitable progress, as some of us thought a few years ago. Many thought that science, education and many other things might save us, but what a foolish hope these things have turned out to be. "We need something deeper than science, education, to "Soul" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, yesterday. The Golden Text was from Psalms 70:4. "Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified." Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon was the following from the Bible: • "For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the thingi of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." (Romans 8:5-7.) The Lesson-Sermon also included the following passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy: "The various mortal beliefs formulated in human philosophy, physiology, hygiene, are mainly predicated of matter, and afford faint gleams of God, or Truth. The more material a belief, the more obstinately tenacious its error; the stronger are the manifestations of the corporeal senses, the weaker the Indications of Soul. When once destroyed by divine Science, the false evidence before the corporeal senses disappears. Hence the opposition of sensuous man to the Science of Soul and the significance of the Scriptures, The carnal mind is enmity against God'."

John J. Pershing on his expedition to Mexico to capture Pancho Villa. Then came the World War and the part the soldiers of Fort Huachuca played therein. After the war, this army post again reverted to an uneventful matter of routine duties, down through the years until the present national defense program injected new life with a modern building program at the lonely outpost established by Capt Samuel Marmaduke Whitside 64 years ago.

Here is a fine test of character and leadership. Both these leaders now revered by all of us accepted their responsibilities with recognition of God's partnership.
