IN RELIGION & THOUGHT
by Robert L. Moody
Wu ministers and Chrsitians,
often refer to the condition of Is
rael and Judah during the time of
the prophets, Jeremiah, Amos, Ez
. ekieh, Daniel and Isaiah, as days
ci a “shipwrecked statc” We do
not need to go that far back now.
Our imagination need not be
stretched that far in order to un
derstand what chaos is.
To the students of history and
modern problems there is nothing
more complexed than our present
European crisis. The newspapers
and radio has been filled with
flashes and reports from Europe.
Our Lord told us in Matt. 24 6, 7.
That we should hear of “Wars and
Rumors of Wars”. All, these are
the beginning of sorrows.” Sure
ly His coming must be very near.
Yet what preparations are you
making to meet him. He will
probably come at any moment.
Thinking of shipwrecked states

(4) the aggressiveness of the Hun

the purges and propaganda con.

Or . gets a clear idea of what a
shipwrecked state actually is.
St. Paul experienced a literal
shipwrecked but God gave him the
assurance that all would be saved.
And while many snilors were ready
to kill themselves, Paul was able
to say “Except these abide in the
ship, ye cannot be saved.” We do
not use this thought ti say that
in our present class, every one
will be saved, but we do “believe
God” and as His Son has said we
must abide in Christ. “He that
shall endure unto the end, the
same shall be saved.”
While nations and states are in
turmoil, we expect the Shristians
to abide in Christ and all sinners,
hypocrits and professor to enter
‘ into’ ’Christ—not merely “close 1
to Him” for * Except these abide

Giving in to Dictators may stave
off for a while longer a new
World War, but not for long. The
Democracies will eventually come
face to face with the necessity of
preserving the principle of the

principle of one man forcing his

years ago a world war was fought
to all intents and purposes, to set

people or monarchies should be the

last week gave a full feature space
to a story of the life and work
of Duke Ellington. The Great

reads: “If we were asked to name
the ten best American composers
living or dead, wo would put Duke
Ellington on the list, not because
of the intricacies of his composi

“That paragraph,” say the wri

the popular book “A Southerner j

a more humane and sane view of
the problems posed by the South’s

“Democracy Is Broad”, Mr. Dan

South remains a land where too
many people fight over the divis

The Negro’s position in the
South today is admittedly precar

the Negroes out of the jobs which
