County Joins Nation's Space Program
Gulf Named Part of "Spaceport"
Governor Bob Martinez announced Monday he
will ask the Legislature to approve actions and ex-
penditures in its spring session to lift Florida off into
space on commercial ventures.
Gulf county will be right in the thick of this new:
venture, as space partners with Cape Canaveral,
when he announced a proposed new commercial
probe rocket launch site would be located at Cape
San Blas, near Port St. Joe.
Governor Martinez announced the local instal-
lation, which is officially known as "Spaceport Flor-
ida", is designed to be a part of developing the na-
tion's first commercial launch facilities here as well
as on Florida's Space Coast at Cape Canaveral.
In his announcement, the Governor announced
he will recommend legislation creating a Spaceport
Authority to oversee the project and will include
$10 million in his budget proposal for costs asso-
ciated with the spaceport. The announcement was
made in ceremonies at the Kennedy Space Center
"When America enters the space commerce in-
dustry, it should be from Florida," Martinez said.
"Here in Florida, we are uniquely positioned to
serve as America's launching pad. We have the
time, we have the place, we have the talent and we
have the resources.
SUB-ORBITAL LAUNCH FACILITY
The installation designated for Port St. Joe will
certainly be no Cape Canaveral, but it will be the
first step for the state to get into the commercial
utilization of space technology. The Gulf county in-
stallation will be a small sub-orbital launch facility
for sounding rockets at Cape San Blas. _Governor
Martinez directed the Florida Department of Com-
merce to begin steps necessary to develop the facili-
Also in the plans is development of a primary
Spaceport Florida facility to launch larger, orbital
payloads in the Cape Canaveral area.
The sub-orbital launches will be smaller rock-
ets which will not be placed into orbit.
The facility at Cape San Blas will also be small
at first. Estimates from the Governor's office are
that the site can be developed for approximately
$200,000 and could be operational within 9 to 12
months. The site to be developed is on Eglin Air
Force Base property, and will utilize former Air
Force launch facilities, which are now idle.
TWO YEARS OF PLANNING
The Governor's announcement comes almost
two years after he created the Governor's Commis-
sion on Space to explore the feasibility of a Florida
facility for commercial space launches. Federal
space policy has since taken the government out of
the market for launching commercial payloads into
space, although federal funds may be available to
cover a large portion of the costs of developing a
Governor Martinez, who served last year on the
federal Commercial Space Advisory Committee, met
on Friday and discussed national space policy with
Vice President Dan Quayle, who serves as chair-
man of the National Space Policy Council. In an ad-
dress to Congress Thursday night, President Bush
reaffirmed his commitment to commercial uses of

tion's space program have been closely linked for

tain Mike Sweet.

According to Captain Sweet,
both boats and their captains
and crews have been charged by
the Marine Patrol with clamming
in protected waters in St. Joseph
Bay, taking clams illegally.
The two boats had a total of
3,832 clams on board which were
photographed for evidence and
returned to the waters of the bay.

According to Gulf County Sheriffs Department spokesman,
Captain Jack Davilla, there is a possibility of arson in the after-
noon fire which swept through the building, after starting from
mysterious circumstances. Investigators from the State Fire Mar-
shall's office were on the scene investigating early this week, but
had not arrived at a determination as to how the fire started or if
it was arson, at press time Wednesday.
d Building on Hwy. 98
Davilla said appearances were that the fire started in the attic
of the large building, which was last used as a lounge, but has been
sitting idle for several months. Originally, the building was built
for a bowling alley which operated for several years. Both natural
gas and electrical service to the building had been cut off.
The building was owned by Bruce Husband of Wewahitchka.
The blaze drew the services of four county fire departments to
keep the fire from spreading by protecting near-by buildings. Units
from Highland View, Port St. Joe, St. Joe Beach and White City, re-
sponded to the alarm.
Editorials and Comments
We suppose, that with some people, it hasn't quite regis-
tered that 25 years ago a channel was dredged in St. Joseph
Peninsula, on the shores of the bay and doesn't appear to have
harmed the bay during these passing years.
But, it is a fact for all to see.
We must consider, also, that when channels were dug 25
years ago, there wasn't thought given for taking care of the en-
vironment or the immediate surroundings. If you wanted a
channel dug, you brought in the cheapest, most effective tool
you could put your hands on and went to town, letting the
spoil fall where it will.
What we're saying here is that the channel was dug under
very crude conditions, in contrast to the way channels are dug
in this day and time.
Still, we have a very productive bay here; one that a lot of
people, including this writer, is interested in seeing remain pro-
This writer doesn't necessarily think isolating the bay from
all use is necessary to maintain that productivity, however.
Again, we're not sure allowing unbridled entrance and use
of the bay wouldn't harm it. We're no biologist, no engineer and
no botanist. Neither do we belong to the Sierra Club.
We're not at all interested in allowing anything to happen
which would damage our bay.
But, given the track record of the past 25 years, we thought
those opposed to dredging out a boat channel in the bay had
just as well forget the claim that it would damage the ecology.
It hasn't in the past, so there's no reason to think it would in
Now, the damage more people coming to the bay would
cause might be a viable argument and one which could be pur-
sued. Everyone knows people are slobs when it comes to foul-
ing up their environs. It would be hard to guarantee that people
would take care of the waters of this bay or any other.
The only point to consider, as we see it, is should we allow
Langdon Flowers to provide another means of launching boats
in the bay. Considering Flowers' past track record, we feel he
would be as gentle with the bay as anybody could be if he were
granted a permit to dredge the channel. He would certainly be
more gentle than many other developers in the vicinity of the
We need to make up our minds as to whether or not we're
ever going to have another boat entrance to the bay. If we in-
tend to at some point in time, we had rather give the permit to
Flowers and let someone with proven environmental integrity
do the job than to put it off and have some rascal get hold of
one at some time in the future.
So, if we're going to attack the idea of another boat slip in
the bay, let's attack the idea and not Langdon Flowers. He has
shown he is not here to rape our coastline and bay and doesn't
deserve to have that reputation thrust upon him.
Jim Looks Shady
Did you see President Bush's address on television Thurs-
day night of last week? Did you witness the honeymoon with
;the Congress still in force? Did you get the idea the president.
'was telling us he wanted America to become America again and
not remain as something foreign to the past moral tone of this
nation? Did you witness his determination to restore law and
order to our land, punishing the evil doers and protecting those
who behave themselves?
Have you heard these things before?
Nobody wants to be a pessimist this early in the game. But,
all realists see a real need to adopt the national lifestyle the
President was proposing. It IS time the nation became number
one in the world once again, in commerce, living standard,
manufacturing, production of vital goods. We have lived off the
world too long. If we continue it much longer, the world will
own us, body and soul.
Of course, there was the obligatory follow-up message from
the opposing party. This time House Speaker, Jim Wright and
Senator Lloyd Bentsen did the honors, and were surprisingly
conciliatory in their offering to work with the President to re-
store this nation to its former glory.
The only thing whick bothered us was Speaker Jim Wright.
He seemed about as sincere as Yasser Arafat. Actually, we had
rather buy a used car from Daniel Ortega than from Jim
Wright, but maybe his words will bear more weight than his ap-
pearance or the new reputation he is getting.

YOU LIVE WITH someone for
a long period of time and you
think you know them pretty
good. Really, you know a friend
for a long period of time and you
have an idea you know his or her
habits, likes and dislikes, dispo-
sition, etc., almost as well as you
know your own.
One of the biggest surprises I
ever had was to find out that my
little brother really was conning
me into doing something I wasn't
supposed to be doing when it was
my day to ride our joint bicycle.
He was doing it because Momma
would penalize me a day for mis-
behaviour and let little brother
have the bike for an extra day.
All little brother had to do
was to suggest going somewhere
where the fun was going on, even
though Momma had given the
understanding it was beyond our
range limits and he knew, since I
had the wheels, I would go and
later on, be penalized for it.
I was set up in this manner
time after time.
After a while I realized little
brother was more interested in
having the bike an extra day than
he was in me having a good time
on the day it was my turn to ride.
I HAVE LIVED wvth Frenchie
now for some 43 years, give or

I knew her pretty well.
I know that if somebody
wants to get her undivided atten-
tion, he or she merely has to
mention flowers, or bushes, or
trees, or shrubs, or vines, or any-
thing that grows, and he has her
listening to every word.
I know that come spring, she
will buy flowers and bushes, etc.,
by the dozens. Almost every day
she will cart in something to
plant and watch grow. We've long
since run out of planting room,
but that makes no difference. It's
a flower, so buy! buyl buy!
I know that on the dot of six
in the a.m., regardless of what
time she went to bed, Frenchie is
going to hit the floor, running for
the kitchen to light a fire under
the coffee pot.
She's a caffeine fiend. That's
just part of her ritual. If the clock
goes off, that's fine by her. But, if
it doesn't go off, that makes no
difference. Come six in the morn-
ing, and her feet start swinging
toward the floor.

but that's another story.
I know, for instance, that if
we start on a trip, Frenchie will
lie back on the passenger side
and go fast asleep until the car
stops. This is particularly irritat-
ing from someone who barely
sleeps six hours at night and
never naps during the day.

for her to wash dishes. She never

IN SPITE OF knowing Fren-
chie pretty good after all these
years, I was, nevertheless, sur-
prised by something which hap-
pened the other day.
Actually, I was flabbergasted
I saw an official-looking enve-

day, addressed personally to
Frenchie and since we keep no

Congressman to vote against a
new tax being levied on beer. It
went on to point out just how ex-

six pack or a case or two of beer
"for those friendly parties" if this
tax should pass.
I have since been assured by
Frenchie, herself, that she does
not belong to the Beer Drinkers
of America, nor has she changed
her mind about the inappropri-
ateness of ingesting beer. "They
just got my name from some-
where and I'm going to write my

he used to wear Sya'll out in Eb-
bets Field. As a matter of fact :it
was at Ebbets Field where the
good folks of Brooklyn out of re-
spect began to refer to him simply
as "'The Man". Good fans.
When we took the field down
by the pajama factory we were
near about always Cardinals. You
know what I mean? If I was the
third baseman for the day, I'd be
Ray Jablonski. If I played 2nd,: I
was Red, of course, and if: I
played 1st I was Stan. Listen,
when I was Stan I even put my
glove on the other hand and
threw with my left. We were seri-
ous about our baseball.
When I moved to right field
was the only time I wasn't a Cat-
dinal. Shucks, everybody knows
that in the early fifties St. Louis
never had an outfielder who
could throw worth a flip. When I
took my position in front of that
old wooden fence I became Carl
Furillo. I use to work at it. When
cotton was in and all the older
boys were picking, Ricky Gene
would hit balls off that wall, I'd
race back, pick up the ricochet,
wheel around and fire a one hop
strike to Bobby at second base.
We'd start about 9:30 and play
until it got so dark Bobby
couldn't see the throws coming
in. As Carl Furillo I threw out
routinely the likes of Richie Ash-
burn, Eddie Mathews, Del Ennis,
Ted Kluszewski me and Carl
got'em all. And if I misplayed one
and Mays tried to take an extra
base, Ricky Gene would drop the
bat, grab his glove and we'd nail
Willie at third. I knew that wall
like the back of my hand.
Playing college baseball some
15 years later my coach often
talked about how I threw so
strongly and accurately from arty
position on the field. God gave me
the ability and Carl showed me
how to use it. I'm eternally ri-
debted to both of them.
Now, Mrs. Furillo, as you
must known, I never had the
privilege of meeting your husband
and I only got to see him play oir
T.V. a few times when ya'll met'
the dreaded Yankees in the World
Series. But Harry Caray via radio'
brought every Cardinal-Dodger
game into our living room. What
stars those "Bums" were Hodges
at first, Robinson at second,Cox
at third and "Pee Wee" at short.
Campy was behind the plate and
Snider in center. Shucks, they
even had songs about "The
Duke". The pitching staff had
Don Newcombe, Erskine, Meyer,
Loes, Preacher Roe and Clem La-
bine. Roger Kash immortalized
them as 'The Boys of Summer".
Carl never got the "press" that
most of the other fellows got. He
wasn't first like Jackie, he wasn't
the captain like "Pee Wee" and he
didn't possess the grace of Snid-
er. He wasn't colorful. But I'll tell
you what he did he got the job
done. His .344 batting. mark led
the league in 1953, he ended up
with a .299 lifetime average and
the Dodgers won seven pennants
while he was there. I respected
Snider, Robinson and the rest,
but I loved Carl Furillo. Remem-
ber that time in September 1953
when Leo Durocher got to getting'
on him from the Giants' dugout?
Leo went too far. Now Carl didn't
shout, finger point or jump up
and down putting on a show. He

To Men, Happiness Is...
Some years ago happiness was relatively easy to find. Most
men had rewarding jobs and loved to work. They also loved to
participate in various hobbies such as fishing, hunting, playing
golf and such.
And there was always time, it seemed, to just relax and en-
joy doing nothing but visiting with family and friends.
Today things are somewhat different. Stressful jobs, high
and complicated finances and a fast-paced society makes it dif-
ficult to enjoy the finer things in life.
Still, there is hope. Men today-at least some of them-still
know how to enjoy life and what it has to offer. To some of the
men today, happiness is:

During the Sesquicentennial

When the Monument was erected
in 1922, it was thought it should
.face the road (Old Shell Road)
that went from Port St. Joe to Ap-
alachicola. Highway 98 was not
built at that time. Monument Av-
enue is on that .roadbed. While

Further back North on Monu-
ment there is a drainage ditch on
the South side of the Florida Na-

the drain from a spring that is
under Monument Avenue be-
tween the bank and Hardees and
was known as Knight's Spring.
People travelling through this
area would try to reach this
spring to camp so they could
have water to cook with and wa-
ter for their horses or oxen.
Chances are this spring had
some influence on Mr. T.H. Stone
building his turpentine still near-
by in 1904.
My great grandfather, William
Sanders Maddox and some of his
friends would come over here
from Apalachicola and camp at
Knight's Spring to hunt deer, wild
turkey and fish for speckled trout
in the bay. During this time there
were wild chickens on Black's Is-
land and they were referred to as
Knight's chickens. Occasionally
people would go on the island to
shoot the chicken for food. Un-
doubtedly, there was a man
named Knight who had lived in
this area many years before.

boat channel either missed my
discussion with the Planning
Council and Mr. Ross McWil-
liams, or misunderstood the point
I was trying to make.
Surely, Mr. Flowers and Mr.
McWilliams doesn't think the peo-
ple on the Planning Council or
the people of Gulf County be-
lieved that story about them
building a boat ramp to accom-
modate a couple of boats a week-
end for his friends and guests. I
was merely' pointing out that
there is already a boat ramp lo-
cated, less than a mile from the
City Appreciates Planners Presented with Plaques
Mayor Frank Pate presented plaques of appreciation to Mrs.
Charles Clardy, center and Mrs. Charles Brown, right, at the City
Commission meeting last Tuesday night. Mrs. Clardy and Mrs.
Brown were presented plaques for directing the Sesquicentennial
celebration here in Port St. Joe in December. Mayor Pate remarked
that Mrs. Clardy did most of the*"planning almost single-handedly
and deserved the thanks of the city and its residents. The Sesqui-
centennial marked the 150th anniversary of Florida statehood.
City Commissioner Emily Roche, center, and Rev. Ennis Sell-
ers, right, were also presented plaques of appreciation Tuesday of
last week for their active part in the city-wide Beautification Com-
mittee during the past year. Rev. Sellers is chairman of the com-
mittee and led his group in several projects designed to clean up
eye-sores in the city and keep them clean. Mrs. Roche played an
active part as a member of the committee and also in personally
directing much of the clean-up activities in the downtown area.
Citizen's Federal Is A Sound S&L
Declaring that Citizens' Fed-
eral Savings and Loan Associa-
tion isn't one of the thrift associa-
tions causing the federal
government trouble these days,
Greg Johnson, president of the
proposed marina site, and it
doesn't need dredging because
it's a natural deep water harbor.
I find it hard to believe a man
would spend the amount of mon-
ey it would take to dredge a chan-
nel just to accommodate a couple
S.of boats a, weekend unless there
was some payback involved. I
know it would be less trouble and
a lot less expensive to use the
marina located in the State Park.
Surely Mr. Flowers has other
plans in mind. So why doesn't he
let us see them?
As for the statement fewer
landings discouraging the influx
of boaters to the bay. Why build
more boat ramps when eventually
you're going to have. to regulate
the boat traffic or size of motors
in order to preserve the bay
which is the main problem. As
I'm sure you well know, a boat
will only hold a certain load be-
fore it sinks. The Bay is no differ-
ent, it will only accommodate so
much before harm is done.
With reference to the "Shad
Phantry" column in the February
9 edition of your newspaper, the
first comment which came to my
mind was "POOR WENDELL"!
His humorous suggestions re-
garding establishing reverse roles
at his home were thought provok-
ing if not pathetic. Perhaps his ir-
rational thinking can be attribut-
ed to the "professional cologne"
he was wearing at the City Hall
on Tuesday, the 7th.
I got a whiff of it and can
guarantee if he splashes, himself
with it to greet "Mrs. Wendell"
when she arrives home, she won't
be able to grumble. In fact, it
could take her breath away -

local institution told Rotarians
what was causing the problem
across the country and his opin-
ion of steps being taken to solve
the problem, at their regular
meeting last Thursday.
Johnson said most of the
problem thrifts were in Texas,
Florida .and Colorado, and their
problems were due to a multitide
"First let me say that of the
3,000 savings and loans -in the
United States, 90% are sound
and solvent. Only about six insti-
tutions are causing one quarter
of the problems to the country
and about 25 are accounting for
half the problem associations.
The rest are sound and looking
out for the interest of their inves-
He said the sound thrifts are
responsible for making $1 trillion
in home mortgages, accounting
for 44% of the family dwelling
loans made in the nation.
CAUSE OF PROBLEMS
There are two basic causes
for the much-publicized problem
Swith- thrifts today; "These prob-
lems didn't start yesterday,"
Johnson said. 'They started back
in 1979 and have been allowed to
go unattended until just recently.
Now, if the problems aren't
solved, they can amount to some
serious financial trouble in our
Johnson said the prime caus-
es for problem thrifts is lending
practices which resulted from de-
regulation. "In this situation,
thrifts which were failing, made
wild deals -for savings money,
paying unrealistic interest rates.
They didn't care, since they were
failing anyhow, and would do
anything to keep money in their
He said the situation also
made it possible to make margi-
nal loans on projects which
should have never been ap-
proved. "Out in Texas, there are
whole communities standing va-
cant, which were financed by
S&L's. They were foreclosed and
sold at ridiculously low prices to
members of the S&L's, relieving
them of the foreclosure on their
records in the process. Other
loans just shouldn't have been
made and have resulted in failure
Aof payment schedules in the pro-
The other prime cause of fail-
ure was fraud. Johnson said the
president's proposal contains $50
million to be used solely to prose-
cute those'who were responsible
for shady dealing with S&L de-
Johnson said he could fore-
see no catastrophic things hap-
pening to S&L's in the near fu-
ture. "First, the president's bail-
out package must be approved by
Congress to become law and who
knows what Congress will do?"
Johnson said he felt a tight-
ening up of rules and regulations
under which the thrifts operate
would become a reality. "Nobody

has lost a single dollar of savings
in thrifts insured by FSLIC, but
some changes are needed.",
Johnson said thrifts are gen-
erally expected to keep at least
three percent equity on hand,
while commercial banks are re-
quired to have six percent. "For
your information, Citizens' Feder-
al has better than seven percent
of equity on hand."
The local thrift president of-
fered the opinion that just the at-
tention being called to the failing
thrifts will cause people to be
more choosy about which insti-
tute they trust with their money.

that angers me. He was the heart

Now, Mrs. Furillo, don't let that
bother you. I guarantee you Carl

than you could imagine. And he

he could ever realize.

Give Some Thought To Seeds
For Wider Varieties In Your Spring Gardening Activities
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Don't sell seeds short! Espe-
cially if you're planning a large
vegetable garden. In past articles
I have talked about the pros an
cons of beginning a garden with
transplants, which give you a
faster start, but can be expensive
if you need a lot of plants. In this
article I will discuss planting
seeds first directly in the garden.
.My information was provided by
Extension Vegetable Specialist,
Jim Stephens, of the University of
BIBLE STUDY. .......

Besides costing less than
transplants, a major advantage of
starting a home vegetable garden
directly from seeds is that you
can choose from a wider selection
of varieties. A garden center may
have several varieties of seeds for
a given crop, but only one or two
varieties of transplants. Also,
some crops such as beans, corn,
cucumbers, and turnips don't
transplant very well. It's best to
start these from seeds. On the

other hand, many crops do trans-
plant well. They include things
like tomatoes, broccoli, collards,
and lettuce. If transplants are
available for such crops they're
probably a better bet than start-
ing from seeds unless you're
planning a very large garden.
While most vegetables can be
grown from seeds, there are ex-
ceptions such as sweet potatoes,
Irish potatoes, and strawberries.
For specific recommendations on
crops you want to grow, check
with your garden center, Or see.
your County Extension Agent.
If you decide to start from
seeds, get the best you can find.
Seed quality could mean the dif-
ference between success and fail-
ure in your garden. So, always
buy good seeds from a reliable
For a few crops, you can save
seeds from your garden. But, for
many others that really isn't
practical. Since most seeds are
relatively inexpensive, you're
probably better off buying those
you need, if they're available.
You should buy tested seed
varieties. IFAS scientists test
most crop varieties, and recom-
mend only those which do well
here. You'll have the best chance
for success if you plant varieties
with some resistance to common
Florida pest varieties recom-
mended in Extension Circular
104. "The vegetable Gardening
Guide." It's -available at your
County Extension office, and
many garden centers have refer-
ence copies. Of course, you can
plant anything you like. But,
many gardeners cheat them-
selves by continuing to plant infe-
rior types, without even trying
those that grow best in our state.
There is one note of caution
to keep in mind when handling
seeds. Most of the seeds you'll
find at garden centers have been
treated with chemicals, to. re-
duce injury and decay caused by
insects and diseases. Usually,
you can tell seeds have been
treated, because they're coated
with brightly colored dye.
It's a good idea to use treated
seeds. In fact, you should always
use them, when they're available.
But, remember that the chemi-
cals on such seeds are poison-
ous. So, treated seeds should
never be eaten by people or ani-
mals. They should be handled
with care; and be kept out of the
reach of children and pets.
Finally, follow the planting di-
rections on the seed packet. If
you plant too deep, the young
plants may not be able to reach
the soil surface after sprouting. If
you plant shallow, the seeds may
be washed away by rain.

A Portrait of Paul Revere
By Brigette Elizabeth Godfrey
In April of 1775, the British
General Gage ordered Francis
Smith to gather seven hundred
British soldiers. They were to
bomb all supplies gathered in
Concord by the colonists and to
arrest Samuel Adams and John
Hancock. Smith's orders were
suppose to have been kept a se-
cret but the colonists found out
about them. Paul Revere and Wil-
liam Dawes were sent to warn
Concord, Samuel Adams and
John Hancock of the danger. A
signal was to be given by Revere;
two lanterns in the Old North
Church meant the British were
coming by water and one lantern
meant they were coming by land.
Paul Revere then rode to Lexing-
ton to warn Hancock and Samu-
el. He then continued with Wil-
liam Dawes to Concord. However,
Revere was captured before he
could reach Concord, but his oth-
er companions escaped. He was
soon released and fled to safety
with Adams and Hancock. Revere
would then return to Lexington to
rescue Important papers of John
Haneock. Thanks to the efforts of
Paul Revere, the Minute Men
were waiting at Lexington when
the British arrived on April 19.
Paul Revere has contributed
much to the building of America.
From his silversmith talents to
his midnight ride, he has always
exhibited love and courage for his
country. Paul Revere has been
immortalized by tl

Where Are Christians Coming From?
My last two articles on the
modern translations of the Bible
brought out some very interesting
comments and correspondence.
Those responses could be cate-,
gorized as having their origins in
Fundamentalist, Conservative, or
Liberal philosophies. That gave
me the idea for today's theme. To-
day I want to ask, "Where are
Christians coming from?"
Modem fundamentalism has
its roots in a book by Hunnius in
1623. Hunnius was a German
who wrote on the fundamental
differences between Lutheran and
Presbyterian theology. His
staunch stand for Lutheran Or-
thodoxy created an ecclesiastical

Our Goal Is to

sies are not new to Christianity.
St. Paul had a few things to say
to the Judaizers of his time con-
cerning their unyielding attitude
toward his generous relaxation of
Jewish fundamentals. Other
primitive Christian writers influ-
enced the subject as well (see
Acts 15). Somehow, the Church
has survived all of our differences
The basic idea behind funda-
mentalism is that there are cer-
tain doctrines, or teachings,
which are mandatory for salva-
tion. And that there are other
doctrines that are incidental to
Some theologians who
thought this was an important is-
sue got together at the Niagara
Conference in1895 and agreed on
five doctrines that were seen as
essential to salvation. They were
the total inspiration and inerran-
cy of scripture, the deity of Jesus,
the virgin birth, the substitution-
ary atonement, and the physical
resurrection along with the pre-
millenium second coming of
Since that time different con-
ferences have made ,different lists
of necessary doctrities. As I un-.
derstand'lt, the one thing that all
of the contemporary fundamen-
talists agree on is that liberalism
It is obvious to the experi-
enced reader that I am writing
aphoristically, so I will recom-
mend that you read books like
The Fundamentalist Phenome-
non, by J. Falwell or Fundamen-
talism and The Word of God, by
J.I. Packer to get the complete,
authoritative view of the subject.
Conservatives are a little
harder to reduce to a simple
aphorism because they don't go
around having conferences and
authoring doctrinal statements.
For the most part they are folks
who are happy with the way
things are and they are not going
to support change. They don't
want, to change because they see
themselves as being among the
privileged. For them it would be
dreadful to slip a notch or two, so
they struggle to maintain the
status quo. Yet, they are not rig-
id. They will accept change if they
think it is pragmatic or practical,
and if it does them some good.
Liberalism may be defined as
an appeal to humanity. It does
not relate to classes, religions,
property interests, or racial
groups. That is why the fabulous-
ly wealthy, Roman Catholic, Ted
Kennedy can campaign for a
black Baptist preacher like Jesse
Jackson. Religious liberals, like
political liberals, argue that indi-
viduals have natural rights sim-
ply because they are human.
These philosophies are not al-

ways consistent, and where spe-
cial interests are concerned their
borders get cloudy. Space allows
me only one example of how
these world views control our
thinking, but you can apply the
principle to nearly every contro-
Here is an example of how
our thinking is conditioned by
these philosophies. The Funda-
mentalist says that abortion for
any reason is murder. The Con-
servative says that abortion
should only be allowed for incest,,
rape, and life threatening situa-
tions. The Liberal says that an
unborn baby is not human but
the mother is, and she has a right
to do as she pleases with her own
In my opinion, none of these
groups are entirely trustworthy
because they are all prone to ob-
scure the facts that do not sup-
port their personalized views of
; reality. '
- None, of these philosophical a
stances is Christian. They all can
be traced to intellectual concepts
that were around before Christ
appeared on earth. They are polit-
ical and ethical statements. They
belong to the realm of sociology
more than they do to religion.
Even so, every modern religion'
has devotees to each of the three
viewpoints. The amazing thing .is
that Christians often defend '
these worldly mind-sets, even
when they cause schism within
the family of God. If I prciperly
grasp the words of our blessed
Lord in John 17, this is contrary'
to his will.
My question remains 'unan-I

coming from?" If you think you t
