Moral corruption has been the
ruin ot the great rations of the earth,
and if history is not to be repeated
by the fall of our own nation, we
must do something—yes. something
prompt and drastic. The breakdown
of morals in our land is so evident
ar.d so widespread as to give grave
concern to social and national lead
ers. What then, is the Church
doing about it?
We do nut Ike to talk about adul
tery and related sins. We must
speak with care and tact, but per
haps the time has come for some
straightforward dealing with an un- J

of man’s life, the home holds a
place of such importance that it is

II. Keep Your Heart Pure (Prov.
4:14-23. Matt 5 8)
Out of the heart are the issues of
life * Prov. 4 23); hence it is of the
utmost importance that it be kept in
purity and devotion to God.
The heart in Scripture does not
refer to the physical organ which
circulates the blood, but even as that
heart is the center of the physical
life, so there is a spiritual heart
which i» the very center of man's |
Evil thoughts, unholy desires and

Little Jack was building a toy
village. When he had all the build
ings and trees and shrubs arrang
ed he said, ‘ Look, daddy; see my
village”. His father looked ud from
his newspaper and said, “Its a
good-looking village son, but I
don't see the church”. “No”, said
Jack, "it was so crowded that 1
left it out”. Well then, replied
the father, "you’ll have to take
out that fine hispital. and this old
folk's home, the school too. These
institutions do not exist where
there is no church.” As the father
removed these buildings, the little
boy cried. "Oh daddy, you’re
spoiling the whole village”. “I’m
spoiling it?” asked the father ini
amazement. ‘Why, son, you spoil-!
ed it when you left out the church.!
Wherever you go you'll find that
no village, without a house of wor
ship. is worth much”.
Christianity not only saves our
souls, but it also has a wholesome

SAINTS AND DEVILS
By Kermit Ebv, Director of
Education and Research, CIO
It's a funny thing: “Jimcrow has
come to be synonymous with “dis
crimination”—and yet crows don’t
discriminate! To them all men
are devils! This I learned in a
Korean rice field.
There some farmers had con
structed a scarecrow with red
hair, blue eyes and a dead white
face. The crow avoided the field
as scrupulously as they avoided
my father’s corn field in Indiana
where scarecrows were always
constructed with black hair and
black faces. Yet the Korean scare
crow looked as little frightening
to me as did the picture of blonde
saints on our Sunday School walls.
Thus I learned another thing: We
fashion our saints in our own im
age and our devils in the image of
This was further impressed on
me when travelling in China the
children pointed at me, yelling
“foreign devil”. “Why ‘devil’?” I
asked my translator. The answer:
Because I have a big nose: only
devils and foreigners had big no
ses in China.
I should have learned this les
son long before I did. But it had
not dawned on me that time when
I was a little boy and got to know
Mosie Wolfberg. Our farm was
some distance from the shopping
center, and all the farm people
depended on Mosie’s monthly trips
for various and sundry items:
needles and thread, buttons and
shoelaces, ginghams and calicos.
Down the road from the town, Mo
sie would trudge, his pack on his
back, his face expressionless. I
did not know what a Jew was
then but I knew that Mosie was
foreign to the Indiana people I
knew. He had a very long nose,
sad eyes and a strange accent. My
sister and I were terrified of him
until the day when digging down
into the very bottom of his my
sterious bag, he brought forth a
stick of candy, broke it in half, and
shyly offered the pieces to us two.
From then on. a proven friend. wre
looked forw'ard to his visits with
I was dismayed when I revisited
Indiana in 1945 to find intolerance
where there had been a spirit of
live-let-live. For the first time out
there I heard the rantings of an
ant(-semite. This frightened me
more than I had ever been fright
ened by our old peddles. And it
takes more than a half stick of
candy to establish my faith now.
Having learned so thoroughly
through my own experience how
childish such prejudices are, I be
lieve that the people of all na
tions, all races and all creeds must
grow up and stop playing the silly
game of imagining foreigners, or
those different from themselves in
any way, to be devils-landsmen
and co-religionists to be saints.

—Publicity Department —
3558 South Jefferson Ave.,
Saint Louis, Missouri
Saint Louis, Missouri, August 25 (Special) A nation-wide ap
peal for a renewed realization of the daning character of sin was
issued today by Chaplain Arthur Carl Piepkorn, (Lieutenant Colon
el), instructor at the Army Chaplains School at Fort Oglethorpe,
Georgia. Appearing as summer guest speaker on the International
Lutheran Hour over the Mutual Broadcasting System and affiliated
stations. Chaplain Piepkorn asserted: “Man’s determination to build
his world without God is nothing new. Even in its modern form it
can be traced back through four centuries to the Renaissance. About
a hundred years ago. however, roughly three generations, it received
a tremendous fillip through the nineteenth century upsurge of tech
nical knowledge about the world in which we live. The ability to
control at least partially forces of nature that less scientific ages
had piously referred to the inscrutable wisdom of God turned out to
be a heady intoxicant for many otherwise very intelligent men. Be-1
lief in God began to be treated as a kind of treason to ssience, and |
every conviction that could not be tested in a laboratory, or weighed I
in a pair of balances, or reduced to a mathematical formula, or J
seen in a microscope, or discovered through a telescope, was decried
as an infamous heresy and as a relic of spiritual slavery which must |
be destroyed posthaste.”
Chaplain Piepkorn continued: “Consider a moment that glorious J
basis for your pardon: “The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son,
cleanseth us from all sins.” In that sentence is the whole of the
Gospel, the unabridged and unabbreviated good news of the grace i
of God in Christ Jesus. Christmas is in that sentence, with its mes
sage of the Eternal Word made flesh in the divine and human natur
es of the single Person of the Virgin’s Child. In it is His nameless
Agony in the Garden, His precious atoning death upon the cross,
and the somber burial that attested the final and perfect comleteness
of His sacrifice. In it is the precious blood of the Lamb of God
that taketh away the sin of the world. In it is the price of YOUR
ust. The Senate approved it on the
15th of July.
