TOPICAL COMiET1NTS by Androcles

I hogin today by sincerely welcoming to Dominica the delegates of the Synod
of the IIethodist Church, both clerical and lay, I express the hope that their
'deliberations- will prove helpful to that Church in particular and to the Chris-
tian Church in general, Especially in these days of ecumenism, the welfare and
progress of any of the historic, churches of Christendom has implications of
benefit for the larger and wider Christianityo
The Methodist Church holds a very honourable place in the history of predomi-
nantly Catholic Dominica and I hope the adherents of both these Churches, as
also tho Anglican Church, appreciate the contribution which these churches have
made to the culture and civilization of our community. One has only to consider
that it' iias these bodies which first attuimpted to bring enlightenment by way of
formal education to our forbears during and after Emancipation. At that time
the S'tata had no 'interest in education, Therefore, as we enter into nationhood,
all honour to those religious bodies who first bore the heat and burdens of the
day in loading us out of the darkness: into which slavery had relegated our for-
bears,. Hve'r should West Indians forget the great debt they oweO to the historic
Churches of Christendom.
The delegates to the Synod will know that' strange as it may seem, the Dominica
of this day has made an outstanding' contribution in the religious field in having
two of its sons hold very high office in the life of the Christian Church, the one
in Protestantism, the other in Catholicism. The delegates will all have known in
intimate detain of the remarkable rise of Rov Phillip Potter to the high office
of Assistant to the Secretary of the ';Corld Council of Churches, an achievement of
which all Dominica is proud. They may not,, however, kn6w that on the Synod of
BLl-~Ors, the new advisory body to His Holiness the Pope, is another Dominican,
the Right Reverend Joseph Bowers, Bishop of Accra, Ghana. This, too, as can well
be imagined, is a source of pride and pleasure to Dominicans. It is therefore
to the Dominica of Rov. Phillip Potter and Bishop Joseph Bowers that I bid welcome
this ooek to the delegates to the Methodist Synod, -Tro all hope that they will
enjoy their stay in the island and which, I am sure, has been adequately and
competzontly prepared by the present Superintendent, who is locally very widely
regar:iled and esteemed. I like to think that during the Synod in Dominica, the
spirits of two famous Johns will inspire its deliberations as they have in their
respective times inspired the Christian Church --- John Tesloy and John XXIII.
+++ ++- -+++ +++ ++ ++ ++ ++-+ -+++
I.now wish to do-bunk a'view which has recently boon stressed in another organ
of the local press, namely, that one should not criticize unless one can at the
same time propose a solution or offera a remedy for that which. one criticizes.
I find this viewpoint quite untenable. The fact that I see something, is wrong
cannot carry the additional implication that I hnow how to right it, Neither can
it be maintained that because I do not have the solution to what I see to be wrong,
I should therefore not criticize ito
Examples if I find the drains of the streets of the city of Roseau are in an
insanitary condition, I may-not have a solution to the problem since, for one
thing, I do-.not have all the :Anformation surrounding the circumstances. The drains
may be insanitary because of a technical defect'in their construction, or because
workers do not do their scavenging job properly, or because the number of workers
to clean the drains is insufficient, or for a number of other reasons or a combina-
tion of them, The average person cannot be expected to have all the information
required in order to make a sensible recommendation. And yet he can clearly see
that the drains are foul. aust he then refrain from criticising the Town Council
for allowing such conditions to exist just because he is not able to pinpoint the
solution? It is sufficient that such conditions ought not to be allowed to exist
to justify criticism of the Council for failure to perform a duty specifically
its own responsibility. One columnist has made a distinction between "construct$Te"
and'doestructivc" criticism, I find it difficult to appreciate- such a fine distinct-
ion in this complex and specialist world (concld. on p.4.)

explained IMr Errol Mahabir, Minister of

Short Story- T EE BOTKEI-T P 7 by Dada Shewak

Ajit had run all the way hone to toll his parents of his victory, Ho was
indeed a proud boy as he told his father all about the table tennis tournament.
"I think that was a great stroke of luck when Praful broke his racket," continued
Ajit,-"for he was in the best form, and I don't think that. anyone would have stopped
hiu 'from winning."
"UToll, what did Praful do?" asked father,
"ah just had to fall out, which left no with a good chance of winning."'
"But didn't someone offer hin the loan of one of their spare rackets? I thought
you took yours along with you,'.'
"I could have lent hin nine, but it would? have _spoilt yr only chance of winning,"
explained Ajit.
"Cono, draw up your chair, son, and I will tell you a stbiry of what really happened
to a boy who helped someone else when it noant his losing something which he longed
for."
So drawing up their chairs nearer, father started his story.
"It was oeanination tine.-on General English, and the class-naster sat before a

Vinoo had put that now nib into his pen,
"The examination cane to-an end. 'Vinoo realized his oabition, he was top of the

"But the story doesn't finish there," continued father. "About forty years after

De-ar Madan. RE COMPA0ATIVE RELIGION

In my previous letter I inquired as to whether or not your correspondent on
Conparativo Roligion believed in the teachings of Christ as recorded in the Holy
Scriptures. So far I have received no reply. Perhaps the question is too per-
sonal to be answered in the press.
If I knew that your correspondent had no use for the Holy Scripturost and that
it did not matter to hin whether or not Chris' was the son of God, or, that he did
not care whether or not Christ's death was for the rodomption of nan, or whether
or not He was resurrected, I would not bother to debate with him the subject of
Christianity's future, for this would be pointless.
I have been wondering how he could ever arrive at the'conclusion that the fact.
that I was the only reader who openly disagreed with hin, proves his poiht. This;
is irrational. He should be learned enough .to know that the majority is not always-
right. For example, the fact that the majority of children born in this island
over recent tines are born out of wedlock does ndt monak this practice the best one. ,
The majority may well be in error too in this matter of spiritual things, for Christl
himself said that many would walk in the broad way which leads to eternal death,
whilo few would find the narrow way which leads to eternal life (Matthew 7:13, 14).
Your correspondent knows well that to a large majority of Christins., Chritian-
ity has no Lorc'.in, Christ is not personal. They are stooped in traditions, a
practice for which Christ rebuked some of his learned contemporaries. Small wonder,
saCo of the largo religious bodies are referred to as noninal Christian churches,
or churches which only carry the name of Christ. How then, could individuals from
those bodies oppose his philosophy (or rather defend theirs), when they hardly
have one of their own.
However, the fact cannot be overlooked that a minority of Christians know Christ~
and feel and see the results of His Spirit working in their lives today. Your
correspondent stated three weeks' ago that 'Christianity the spirit of love that
Christ brought into the world... is indestructible and eternal." Beceuse this is
true. Christianity must have a future for a minority of its adherents who are living"
according to Christts teachings- They believe that Christ lives eternally, and
that since He is truth personified, He will not fail to fulfil-His pron.se of
Etcrnal life to those who love Him and keep His-Connandnontso (Matt. 19:17).
Christians also believe in the prophecies about the time of the end as revealed
by Christ Himself and through His prophets (e.g. Daniel 2). Conditions in the
world today -- political unrest, immorality, scientific adv'-.ancement, do not surprise
the christian who has studied prophecy, since nany of these things have been fore- /
told over two thousand yearsoago. Nwither is the lhilosoplhy that Christianity
has no future a shock to him, for it is only another fulfilocat of prophecy.
However, the Holy Scriptures admonishes the Christian to fix his faith firmly
in Christ without wavering. It is left to hin to accept this counsel or reject it. /

Dear Roader, first of all I must thank you..for your-letter; in trying to write a
provocative column that will spark peoples- interest in religion I got very dis-
couraged if I get no response from our readers.
The nain difficulty in ,aniswering your lob ter is one of -emantdics the meaning
of words. You see religion takes words, phrases and titles and, over a period of
tino, subtly alters their original neanings and labels the 'Itraditionall even
though (as you yourself stated in your letter) Christ had no use for tradition.,

Q/ tDo I believe in the teachings of Christ?.
A/' Yes I.do, and I trv and live accordingly.
Q/ t'....as recorded in the Holy Scriptures?
A/ Which Holy Scriptures? There are references to Christ and His teachings in
Holy Kriptures other than the New Testament you know, there are also many dif-
ferent transliterations of the New Testament. For instance, the King James version
says in Matthew 24: 3...of..the end' of the world. Whilst the New English Bible
which superoedes the King James version says '..,at the end of the age' ... my
cc.nceptioAs of the teachings of Christ are based on an overall study of all this,
,.-.d so may differ from your conceptions maybe both of us are-wrong *.. however,
if we are not against Him, we must be for Him... at least thattswhat He said, so
letlnot worry about our differences eh?
Q/ '...whether or not I think He was the Son of God? '
A/ If by ton of God you refer to a symbolic title I accept it, but if you use it
in the anthropomorphic sense, no no no I
SQ/ t.i..whether Christ's death was for the redemption of man?'
A/ I believe that Christ's physical death was by His own choice because He knew
this was the best way to prove the point of His teachings and really drive the
lesson home; having divine knowledge He could-foresee the subsequent turn of events-
Q/ '....whether or not He Was resurrected?'
A/ Itm only interested in the spiritual aspects of His resurrection not the
physical, I feel that if I wasn't capable of recognizing Him unless I put my
Singers in..the nail holes then I would have missed the whole point of His teach-
ings I (It's the same with miracles, if you accept Christ because of miracles,
then you are. accepting Him for the wrong reason). How I must take you tD task on
the ncet part of your letter rwhen you remark that if I don't believe there's no
point in discussing..... Please I I'ts your duty to give the message of Love to non-
believers and if you.trt armed with Truth you will often succeed. Now as it
happens I do believe and we are on the same side, but if I didn't would you not
t r and bring me into the fold- Remember it's possible to get some good members
from the non-bolivers....remember someone called Saul?
Q/ How did I arrive at the conclusion that you were the only one who disagreed
with me on Christianity's future?
A/ I said that you were the only one who cared enough to write and tell me so
(and in so doing earned my deepest respect).
Now you seem to agree with me about the state of present Christianity, but
point out that a small minority. will 'carry the torch'.*..lets go back Is. tine to
*Moses. Now Moses spoke with'God and received from Him a set of teachings as tho
basis of the Judaic religion; These teachings were from God and so we must presume
tihat they were eternal, and yet Christ abrogated' some of them I We then realise
iat these truths are in two parts, the spiritual laws which stay basically un-
changed, and the social laws that suit the time and the current conditions, and
will change. It is clearly time for a new set of social'laws in religion: and
in giving man these new laws. od willfulfil Christianity, just as He fulfilled
Judaism, and, just as Judaism is'with us-, but no longer leads spiritually, so
Christianity will remain with us, but in the same kind of empty sh6ll as Judaism...
as you say, these things were foretold over tw. thousand'years ago, for instancoo0.
..,rand on that stone will be written a new mame...t Rov.2.17.
Tlhis really bl1 leads up to Christ's return but we must leave that for another
tine .!
Thank you once more for your letter, maybe our exchange of thoughts' will got
someone else interested in God.

BOOK PREVIET: from the Minister of Health
& Education

"Sins of the Fathers", by James Pope-Heniieim

This book which is now available at the
Public Library, has been reviewed in the
Illustrated London News under the very apt
heading "Dark satanic trade". It is in
fact a study of the African slave traders
.from 1441-1809.
In collecting material for this book,
Pope-Hennessy depended to a great extent
on the memoirs and journals of several
slave traders including John Newton,later
Roev.John John Newton who spent nine years
in the slave trade, and then loft on the
advice of his doctors, to become a very
ardent abolitionist.
In'contrast to other books on the sub-
ject, the author does not only dwell upon
statistical and economic aspects, but he.
goes further and presents a more personal
outlook.
The reader is. takdn on board the slave
.ships where "the pregnant women gave birth
to babies whilst chained to corpses." On
those ships the author estimates that"in
four centuries a total of fifteen million
wonon and children of African blood weane
delivered into trans-Atlantic slavery
under conditions so hideous that nine
millions more were estimated to have died
during the crossing."
In the African homeland of the slaves
one is brought face to face with the power-
ful tribal chiefs, and the Africans them-
selves are seen offering their followmen
for sale to the European traders. Still
the words of Ottobah Cugoano, a freed
slave cannot be ignored when he said that
"if there were no buyers there would be
no sellers*"o
This very topical and interesting book
in the easy style of Pope-Hennessy should
be read by everyone who is interested in
the slaves ahd the children of the slaves.
