Although our get-tough policy,
as one commentator put*, it, is
“long delayed”, the Cuban situ
ation is one that we must face
up to. The time has come, as
the Walrus said, to speak of
many things, and NOW is the
time. The communist toe-hold
in Cuba is a parallel analogy
with the story of the camel that
got his head in the Arab’s tent,
and then a foot, and so on un

When we opened our eyes this
morning and drew fresh air into
our bodies, we were experienc
ing the love of God. As we
viewed the ijeautiful world
around us we saw God’s love
bursting out with all its loveli
ness. Nature shows His love in
| a definite way, hut it only
scratches the surface.
God’s love for man started in
the beginning of the world. The
first expression of His love for
us occurred in a physical form.
This is when He created us. He
loved u.s more than the animals,
therefore He gave us dominion
over them. He created u.s in
His own image, thereby giving
us a mind to think for our
The question is often asked;
if God loved man so much why
did He allow man to fall into
sin? God was perfect. He had
pushed the print's of evil out
of Heaven. So God was a per
fect God in a perfect Heaven.
Naturally He created a perfect
man. Adam had not one sin or
blemish on his soul. As I said
God created Adam in His own
image giving him a mind to
think .for himself. Adam had
the whole character of man in
his. hands. God had given him
the power to choose his own way
of life. He simply chose the
wrong, path of life. He made j
the wrong choice because he had
been tempted by Satan. Was it |
God’s |ault? No.
By Adam’s sin we all are
slaves to sin. This called for
the greatest expression of love
that God has ever shown us.
He loved us and He didn’t want
one of us to perish. So God
actually gave part of Himself up.
He sacrificed His Son for the
sins of the world. Christ broke |
the bonds of sin as His blood
streamed from His precious
