If you are hell-bent on dying,
for goodness sake think of a
more original way than taking
off in an automobile accident.
And in the meantime drive care
fully; it might be monotonous,
but less bloody and messy than
a crackup or crash. Try it.

which at first glance I thought

i>,_spite ecumenical propaganda
and drum-beating, there was
very little enthusiasm for church
union. Only 27 per cent of the
ministers considered it “very im
portant,” and only 18 per cent
were in favor of church union
through organic mergers. 24
per cent opposed any form of
merger. Almost half (48 per
cent) felt that any union of
churches should be on a doc
trinal basis alone (83 per cent
of Lutherans felt this way, but
only 25 per cent of Methodists).
Almost all Presbyterians be
lieved that affirmation of “God
as Creator of Man” is an im
portant basis for church union, i
but only 93 per cent of Epis-J
copalians, and 92 per cent of|
Baptists. With respect to the|
historical, bodily resurrection of)
Christ, only 68 per cent of Meth-1
odist ministers thought the doc-1
trine important, and only 70 per
cent of Presbyterians (see I Co- j
rinthians. chapter 15).
Baptists and Lutherans sup
ported belief on Jesus Christ as
Saviour and Lord as an import
ant basis of Christian fellow
ship by 97 per cent (Methodists
1 and Presbyterians by 95 per cent
and Episcopalians by 93 per
cent). 90 per cent of Episco
palians accept Jesus Christ as
God (as do 90 per cent of the
Presbyterians, and 88 per cent
of the Methodists).
