THE POSITIVE APPROACH
The work done by the Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica in cutting down juvenile delinquency is one
of thd bright spots in an otherwise unhappy sit-
uation. When parents have failed, the Scouts
have succeeded. Instances are legion.
The Scouts are.wise in reversing the order in
which one generally considers the subject of
delinquency. Instead of bemoaning the fact,
that 1.9% of the country's boys find themselves
in trouble with juvenile courts, the Scouts hap-
pily point out that 98.1% of youngsters do. not be-
come so involved.
Thus having made the point that most kids
are reasonably good, the Scouts set out to re-
claim the comparatively few who are bad. This
is a positive approach instead of a negative
one, and we can all learn much from such an

Fact is we Ford Dealers can give you more
because we're selling so many new Fords!
S Today the sale of Ford Cars is the biggest in 30
years! And when we sell a big volume of cars, it
costs us less to handle each unit. As a result, we can
pass this saving on to you in the form of a more
generous allowance for your present car when you
trade it in on a new Ford. We know from experience
that it's better for us, and better for our customers,
too, when we make a little on a lot of sales rather
than holding out for maximum profit on fewer sales.
That's why we're offering top-dollar deals these
days. Come in and see and Test Drive the new
Fords. Then let us make you an offer on your old
car. We believe you'll be pleasantly surprised at the
fine deal you can make with us NOW!

of Scripture are revealing but all
too often the revelation seems to
be a mystery. We might give many
interpretations to a few lines but
there is always i.le haunting thot
'hat there mig;lh be but one true
meaning and we have never grasp-
ed that meaning. Then again. -we
must always proceed with great
caution to take a few lines of the
Bible and weave from them, for it
may well be that the bulk from
which they were taken adequately
provides the meaning they intend-
ed. The words quoted above, how-
ever, seem to fall in the first cate-
gory. We might well ask: "What
does it mean?"
Scholars are in some agreement
that these words certainly do not
mean that he who "slanders" Christ
is unforgiven. Scholars are in equal
agreement that these words do not
mean that he who "uses the Lord's
name in vain" is in danger of dam-
nation. Again, scholars are in agree-
nent that these words do not mean
that he who is honestly convicted
that Christ is a fanatic, a lunatic or
a self-deceiver is in danger of being
guilty of an eternal sin..
Certainly, this passage speaks of
something-certainly it says that
:'ome are in danger of eternal dain-
nation-who are these persons? It
seems that those persons who think
they solve all their own problems
iare the ones who are in exceeding
danger. Those persons who say:
"Yes, Christ is the Lord of man-
kind", and then proceed to live their
lives as though they themselves
were lord of their life, those per-
sons are in grave danger indeed. A
man olr woman who can see the
truth in the Christian message and
pay it no mind is the person who
blasphemes against the Holy Ghost
and commits the unforgiveable sin.
In other words, to believe that man
is totally dependent upon himself
leaves man "totally dependent upon
himself." There is no forgiveness,
no salvation, no gift from God. For
the person who can do for himself
-there is nothing for him and this
will be his reward-nothing!
Caution though, lest we become
self satisfied. Lest we see the oth-
er fellow a blasphemer and -we
real holy. Note that one must see
the truth of the Christian message,
This is the challenge in the matter,
We must see the truth, the whole
truth and nothing but the truth. We
i.iust not take some part of the
truth and elevate it to the whole,
we must not take some by-product
of the truth and maite it the whole,
These are the two great traps into
which Christian groups and Chris-
tian individuals fall.
To see the Christian truth, the
whole Christian truth, and nothing
but the Christian truth calls for a
response that modern man is loath
to make. It calls for study! Such a
simple call! But such a demanding
call! The Christian message can be
understood as well by one as ano-
ther-the clergy and the scholar
have no special, esoteric learning-
it is available to one and all. But
the price is not cheap-it does not
come from merely reading scrip-
tures. Inspiration will come from
scripture reading, -. comfort will
come, partial insight will come-
but the fulness of the message re-
mains elusive unless we pay the
price of "Christian study."
The Bible is not a self-explana-
tory book. It must be studied with
the aid-of supplemental books-it
must be wrestled with ahd ap-
proached from many angles. An-
cient fathers and modern commen-
taries must be investigated. After
hours and hours of such exercise
we can qualify ourselves as seek-
ers of the Christian faith. And per-
haps after years of such exercise
we might feel that we have found
some of the Christian truth.
To those who hold that such is
not the lesson to be learned from
this passage of Scripture and to
those that feel that any and all
can pop open the Bible and have
the Word of God speak to him-to
those we might say: "God must
really love to talk to the lazy!"'
And maybe he is really saying to
and himself alone, is the belief that the Bible poppers-"Get to work!"
First' Baptist WMU
Meets At Church
The Wroman's Missionary Union
of the First Baptist Church met at
the church on Monday afternoon at
3 p.m. for their regular missionary
program with 18 members present.
The subject of the program was
"The Christian's Responsibility"
Mrs. J. O. Baggett gave the lesson.
The meeting opened with all sing-

lowed with a prayer by Mrs. Wes-
ley Ramsey, Mrs.. J. Baggett gave
chapters 3 and 4 of the book. Chap-
ter 3 titled, "Helping the Alcohol-
ics". She brought out the fact that
the largest portion of drinkers be-
came drunkards at a ratio of 7 to
1 in theUnited States or four mil-
lion. Most of the illnesses is caus-
ed by alcoholic drinks, she stated.
"To overcome drinking is a high
power--or Christ is the solution,
she said. Mrs. W. C. Pridgeon led
in prayer. ln presenting chapter 4
she brought out the fact that most
all automobile accidents are caused
by alcoholic drinking. Adult and
child delinquency is caused by the
same. She concluded the program
with a special prayer for alcoholics.
Mrs. L. J. Keels dismissed the
meeting with prayer. It was an-

The Woman's Society of Chris-

Church met Monday afternoon at
the church at 3 p.m. for a continua-
tion of "The City" by Kenneth Mil-
ler. Mrs. Robert Bringman, gifted
speaker, continued the study and
chose as her subject, "Chicago".
The subject for the study was "Man
and God in The City" and used as
her topic, "The Church in the Su-
burbs". She told of the responsibili-
ties of the church in these districts
and how great the Christian respon-
sibility is to his fellow man. The
devotional for the afternoon was
taken rom Psalms 1:21 given by
Mrs. Fred Davis.
A short business sesison was held
