to pay each owner of a dosed

year and give other concessions.
Then the government would
j convince She remaining open

improvements in a large meas
use would be paid for by the
government and in addition the
government would helo the re
maining stations to form coop
eratives in buying all of the
gasoline, oil and other equip
imni. The prof. Is on such
transactions would not he sub

a small way, is illustrative of
I what would happen if :he gov
ernment extended the same aid
to other merchants as it does
to the farmer.

live of the Christian should be,
his unioue and unselfish contri-j
button. It is tilt love of Christ
that reaches out to both the;
friend and the foe, the rich and:
the poor, the healthy and the
sick, the strong and the weak. |
Where there is such spontane-
ous love, there is a new eie-i
rnent in society—and it is (hi:;
very element that unifies a;:.!'
There is the perspective of
humility. There is always the;
possibility that we might bo;
wrong, no matter hew noble we!
think our programs and prin- \
eiplcs are. We all need to keep,
a healthy skepticism about our-'
selves, the church, and the na-i
tfori as a whole. It is so dan-,
gcrously easy for us to deceive]
ou:-selves into thinking that we,
are standing on principle when]
in reality the deeper explana-1
tion would lead to hidden pre-'
judices or selfish aspirations. I
Th s has particular significance,
as we consider our national poli-!
cies. We should all be patri-1
otic; we must accept our civil'
responsibilities. One of these i
policies and responsibilities is ta|
defend the nation if it is im- i
periled. However, we must nev-j
cr lose our perspective and as-*
sume thc.t our nation can never
he wrong. We. as a nation, are
simply human beings, and j
where human beings are con-|
corned, there is wide scope fori
Abraham Lincoln is reported
! to have prayed not that 'he Lord
was on his side, but rather that
he would be on the Lord’s side.
Tlie d.fference is a matter of
perspective, but it is such, u
Some take the view that;
Christians snould never speak;
out and criticize the state. How
i ver, it has become increasingly
clear in the lad fif.y years that
Christians must meet together
as Christians and sneak to the
civil authorities as to what the
issues are as seen by Christians.
Churchmen will not find in the
Scriptures or :n • heir own lie! b
trations detailed programs to re
solve the difficult nuestions that
secular authorities must face, es
pecially today. Christian peo
ple, however, have a right and a
lcsponsibility to consult each
; other and then to sneak out
on all or any issue where they
fee! something must be said.
Even if they disagree with the
civil author lies, the word must
still be said!
We must ever bear in mind
t that Chr'stians in many lands
confront “Caesars” autocratic
f military leaders who are b't
teriy antagonistic to the church
We art- not realistic if we for-
g( t that in history “Caesars”
■have often been enemies of the
church. In our time, they may
become more dangerous enemies'
than in the past.
