been violating the spirit if not t)»e

would hurt Roosevelt.^ We are arrest

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LEh^ »N,
By REV. H, C. PENINGER
(August 3, 1941—Rom. 3:21-31)
The lesson we are to study August
3rd is of great importance to every
sane and rational human being. In
deed, it is the heart of the gospel
and concerns mine and your personal
salvation and our eternal well being
while in this probationary life. No
man who has ever lived in the world
has more clearly presented it than
has Paul in the lesson before us. To
him justification by faith is all things
As a devout Jew and Phai’isee he
had for many years tried to justify
himself by the works of the law, but
the harder he tried the farther away
from God he strayed, until one day
he discovered that the only way was
by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
This new discoverey soon became the
Subject and theme for his gospel
message and continued so until the
end of his life. And today there is ab
solutely no other way by which you
and I can have salvation from sin.
When you and I with the saints of
all ages stand before the throne of
God we will be there because of jus
tification by faith and not of works.
If we wish to understand cleai'ly
w'hat Paul is teaching in this lesson
it will be necessary for us to study
the subject of justification as believed
in and practiced by the Jews before
the coming of Christ. To every strict
and devout Jew justification meant
the keeping of the law right down
to the letter with the observing of all
the outward forms and ceremonies
that their righteousness might be im
puted to them. As time passed this
outward righteousness of theirs be
came more binding and legalistic. This
was the same righteousness that Paul
But that is not all the national was trying to live when he had his
motor group advises for , the war
against wastefulness intended to dis
count any threats of hardship through
gasoline conservation. The statistics,'
show that out of 22,000,000,000. gal
lops consumed in a year . . 3,240,000,-
000, or 14.7 per cent constitute “sheer
carelessness” or neglect in keeping
niotors up to standard efficiency. .
“If to this substantial saving possi
ble through at;tention to the condition
of the car itself,” thq Association
stated, “is added the saving possible
experience on the Damascus Road. It
was there and then that he learned
that the Jews were mistaken and that
his own belief was wrong. But like
an honest man he made a clean and
honest confession which revolution
ized the faith of the entire Jewish re
Paul was not antagonistic in his
surrender, for he still thinks that the
law had served a useful purpose. For
by it sin had been held in check until
the coming of Christ. All along the
dark years it had made men conscious
through improved driving practices, it of their sinful condition and their
can be seen that conservation of 20
to 30 per cent of the jNatioris gas con
sumption is a ma.tteT of improving
habits rather than restricting opera
tion of cars.”
It was largely the, factual evidence
of potential gas savings throiigh ac
tion gathered by tbe Association that
caused Mr, Ickes to withdraw his
earl-v threats of ga,sless S'undays. The
Secretary was willing to give motor
ists a cnance to .prove themselves
The Association’s findings’ are the
results of actual tests made in co
operation With the United States Bu
reau of Standards. Car corrections had
to do chiefly with cleaning and ad
justing carburetors, cleaning fuel
pumps, checking, adjustirig ignition
systems, and timipg, checking wheel
aligm^ents, brake clearances and tire
The tests were said to provide a'
striking commentary upon the waste
and friction of “our national economy’'
and the lavish habits of a democratic
people. Had every car owner used 14.9
per cent gasoline in 1940 (which does

Yet ■’ ■ ' ’ ’
it had acted as an agency in prepar
ing the way for the coming of Christ.
In Old Testament times all the proph
ets seemed to see off in the far fu
ture and many of them spoke of it.
It is concerning what they said that
Paul makes mention of in verse one
of the lesson. Paul in this great doc
trine is breaking over all the religious
lines of Judaism.
Reader, get this one thing in your
mind: the law spoken of here wa*
given to the Jews and to them alone..
The Gentiles were not included. Thru
the keeping of the law the Jews be
came a great people. But keeping, the
law could not save the soul any more
than keeping the laws of this country
can save a soul today. It took faith
in the shed blood of Christ to atone'
To make the story short, the Jews
sinned against the law while the Gen
tiles sinned without law. Now Paul
says there is no difference for all have
sinned and come short of the glory of
God. Now that both Jews and Gen
tiles have gone so far in sin that the
old law and the blood of animals could
no longer avail for sin, Paul is holding
out a remedy whereby all who believe
in the story can have a deliverance'
from all guilt and condemnation from
which the law could not deliver..This
being true, redemption is optional. He^
can still believe the law and live the^
law, but if he does he will die "and
be lost. On the other hand, man can
believe in Christ, have faith in the
blood atonement and live the law of
grace and die and be saved.
Sin was of such a nature on the
part of both Jews and Gentiles that
it could not be handled merely by the
law. This fact and this alone made
it necessary for Christ to come to
this earth or world and to die and
to shed his blood for the sins of the
In conclusion let me say that in.
both the Old and New Testanrients
it took blood to seal the contracts.
In the first plan of redemption it took
the blood of slain animals to redeem
man’s soul through faith in that which
Was_ to come. In the secoiid place, it
again took blood to confirm or seal
the contract between God and man,

would have saved $20 for his own
pocket, or a composite saving for the
Nation of $651,000,000. This would
have been enough to buy gasoline for

Plans are also proposed for adoptirig
a “good neighbor” policy whereby
three to six intown office ,workers
living in the same neighborhoods
might team together and ride to and

lowed in the last two weeks by
heav.y rains are wonde^ul gro\y-
ing arid ripening weather, as we
have noted at home*. So today the.
Ukraine wheat is riO longer too .
green—to be cut and serit away
by undefeated Russians, or to be
burnt by retreating Russians. In
other v?oi*ds, whatever may be tl^e
future coutse of the campaign,
one very important thing has al
ready happened. Hitler was ex
pected to make himself master of
the Ukraine food supply at the
usual astonishing'ly low blitz cost
in German blood. By now he has
paid a very big price in German
blood and the Russian wheat ha§
is his puppet, Japari has been given
a free hand in the French territory
in China. France calls upon Japan
to protect her possessions on the fake
charge that America and England are
preparing to take them. That is sinibn
pure Hitler politics. ^

iHERE IS ONE THING that this
country should put a stop to. That
is all these various societies and or
ganizations of people in this 'countVy
who still hold allegiance to foreign
countries. When in former times men

they came to escape those countries
and- to be ttansformed into Ameri
cans. Now they appear to come to
America only to continue to be; sohie-
thing else and to exert pressure On

Meanwhile theere is still much un
certainty here as to what proportion
of. Japanese trade with the United
States will be permitted to continue.
The technical effect of the order freez
ing Japanese assets is not to stop
trade, ' but to put trade under com
plete government control. A licens
ing system has already been set up.
What licenses are granted and how
much trade is licensed becomes a mat
ter of administrative policy.
■ It is perfectly possible for the gov
ernment here to grant licenses today
for tte, export to Japan of aviation
gasoline or fighting planes. Imports
are equally controlled under, the li
censing system. ' There will be no
trade if no licenses are granted, As'
yet there has been no announdement
of official policy on licensing.. It is,
assumed that trade will be permitte.d
to continue for the time being in
commodities which because of char
acter or lirriited value can give Japari
rio appreciable military strength.
It may also be a matter of policy
to let Japan continue to purchase
some gasoline and oil. Official quar
ters have not committed themselves on
these points. Mr. Welles, Avhen asked
at his last press conference about oil
policy,, replied only that every re
quest for an export license would be
weighed and decided on its 'merits..
How each request will be decided will,
be largely a matter of circUmstarices
of the moment. The government here
is now in a position to close or open
She oil faucet, and all the other trade
faucets, in. whatever manner will be'
most helpful to foreign policy.
If at any moment they think Japan
shows signs of improving itfe interna
tional manners, they may be generous
with licenses as a reward. If Japan’s
behaviour goes from bad to worse,
each new misstep is certain to be fol
lowed by an extra squeeze on the
movement to Japan of things Japan
wants, or the movement to the United
States of things Japan is particularly
anxious to'sell here.
Incidentally it is obvious now why
Japanese ships were barred from the
Panama Canal during the two-weeks
period preceding the move into Indo-
China. And while no one has officiial-
ly said so, it can be taken for granted
that no Japanese ships are likely tq^
be going through the,,Canal ,fo.r. some
time to come.
