bursts, mud hits
From United Press International
TOCCOA, Ga. - A wall of red water
gushed from a rain-soaked earthen dam
before dawn Sunday, sending an avalanche
of water, mud, trees, boards and other debris
smashing down on a sleeping Bible-college
campus nestled in the northeast Georgia

37 people died. Two persons were reported
missing and presumed dead, and over 60
A grief-stricken Rosalyn Carter, who had
friends and relatives in the area, rushed from
a Washington church service with the
President to view the disaster scene and offer
comfort to the survivors.
The dam, which formed a lake to supply
water to Toccoa Falls College and the small
mountain town below it, had been placed on
the "high hazard" list by the U.S. Army
Corps of engineers, meaning if it ruptured,
casualties were likely.
The disaster was the worst of its type since
the West Virginia Buffalo Creek flood of
M arch 1 972 in which a coal mine refuse dam,
also saturated by heavy rain, collapsed and
flooded a mining valley, killing 1 18.

Evangelist sees pre-Christian
era; need for spiritual tru th
By KARKN MILLERS
Painting a picture of a world both hungering for and open to spiritual truth,
1 eighton ord challenged an audience of more than 800 Sunday to meet that need
through a lifestyle of communicating the Christian faith.
Ford, associate evangelist with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, spoke
in Memorial Mall during the 10:30a.m. service of the Chapel Hill Bible Church. He
had just returned from a month-long tour in Australia. Afterspendingthe weekend
in Chapel Hill, he and his family returned to their Charlotte home.
l ord said Australians freuuentlv asked him whether he aereed with many persons
that this is a post-CJirktian era. "No. I think this a pre-Christian era," he replied.
"I believe we have yet to see what Jesus Christ will do in our world."
Drawing on his traveling experiences. Ford cited as evidence for his belief a
Brailian church built for 25,000, the number of Christians in Africa growing four
times faster than the population, 15 percent of all Koreans professing Christianity
and frequent Christian conferences lor young people brought up under atheistic
ideologies in Eastern Europe. He said one-third of all Americans claim to be born
again Christians but noted that definitions of "born-again" often vary.
'There are areas of the world that are closed and hostile," Ford admitted.
"There's a door of opposition and resistance on one hand and open doors on the
Speaking to the Christians in the audience. Ford reminded them of their need to
be faithful in responding to these open doors and of their need to have an updated
commitment of new obedience to Christ.
"That (commitment) is ultimately the reason why you and I who know Jesus
Christ share Him." Ford said.
He recalled a time two years ago in Tulsa. Okla., when he went through an
identity crisis and felt inadequate and fearful.
"1 thought 1 really don't have anything to say that's going to reach people. Then I
remembered from Genesis 15 that God said. 'I am your shield, and I am your
exceeding great reward.' And 1 realized, if somebody jeers or makes catcalls, I don't.'
have anything to fear." He said his commitment to obedience rather than his"
feelings were the basis of his actions.
Ford said this commitment also brought former enemies together, such as former
Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver and former Ku Klux Klan leader Tommy Terrent.
I-ord said he talked with Cleaver for two hours shortly after Cleaver had become a
Christian and had recommended that he look upCharlesColson on hit coming trip
to Washington. D.C. Later. Terrent, who became a Christian in a Mississippi
prison, met Cleaver at Fellowship House in Washington, where Colson, Harold
H ughes and other Christians often fathered. "People who had been poles apart were
made one in Christ." Ford said.

"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
The 90th Psalm is "A prayer of Moses the man of G od." It is
especially appropriate for New Years, birthdays, and
funerals. The Eternity of The Almighty is contrasted with the
brevity, shortness, frailty and evil of man's life. "Before the
mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed
the earth and the world, even from Everlasting to Everlasting,
Thou art God." God has not created us with minds capable of
comprehending that which has no beginning, nor end. Why
"kick against the prick"? Why not acknowledge our
limitations? It could be the preparation needed to learn to
"Trust In The Lord with all our heart, and learn not to our own
understanding." Prov. 3:5.
Man's time and days are "As a sleep; like grass which
groweth up; In the morning it flourished and groweth up,
and in the evening it is cut down, and withereth." God "turns
man to destruction, and sayest, Return, ye children of men."
Return to dust. "Return unto the ground ... For dust thou art,
and unto dust shall thou return." - Gen. 3:19.God's Word Is
being fulfilled unto Adam whom He warned not to disobey
orders regarding eating the Forbidden Fruitt Five times in
three verses 7, 9, 11, Moses mentions the anger and
wrath of God because of "the iniquities and secret sins of
man set in the light of His countenance!"
This Psalm is frequently read at funerals, or parts of it, for
often these verses are skipped that reveal the real cause of
death. Would it not be more appropriate to constantly
remind ourselves of the anger and wrath God against the
"Iniquities and secret sins of men," and then rejoice because
Christ took our place and endured the wrath and curse that
we might be saved? And might if not stir us up who believe
with a greater zeal to win the lost to the Savior? He came "to
seek and save that which Is lost." If you do not believe
these things, or take part of God s Word for "myth," you
certainly are out of place in a Protestant Christian Churchl
Mr. Unbeliever, is it "myth" that men return to dust? Do you
expect to escape such an experience? Is Gen. 3:16 a "myth"
where we read "unto the woman He (God) said: I will greatly
multiply thy sorrow and conception; in sorrow shalt thou br
ing forth children?" Ask any, or ask all women who have
travailed in childbirth if this statement of God In Genesis is
"It I could, I surely would, stand on the rock where Moses
stood." Think these words are from a Spiritual. Probably the
basis is the passage in Exodus 33:19-23 where God placed
Moses in the "cleft of a rock" and covered him with i lis har.J
as His glory passed by. Doubtless it is also the basis ot the
beloved song "Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide mysell
in Thee." It is bad, it is too bad, it is two thousand and more
bad, that some of our modern clergy are telling us that "The
R ock of Ages" is out of date! F rom the way I read G od's W ord,
even the words of The Gentle Jesus, it would be a lavor done
such prophets if "a millstone were hanged about their neck,
and they were thrown into the sea!"
Surely Moses knew what he was talking about when he
said in this Psalm'Thou carriest them away as with a Hood
for we are consumed by Thine anger, and by Thy wrath are
we troubled Thou hast set our iniquities before Thee, our
secret sins In the light of Thy countenance All our days are
passed away inThy wrath Who knoweth the power of Tine
anger? even according to Thy fear, so is Thy wrath The
days of our years are threescore and ten; and if by reason of
strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor
and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away."
With the background of these experiences in his mind's
eye, and having confessed them in the first part ot his prayer,
he then prays to God in the 12th verse: "SO TEACH US TO
NUMBER OUR DAYS, THAT WE MAY APPLY OUR HEARTS
UNTO WISDOM." Note he asks God to be their Teacher to
the end they might have wisdom for the use of their switt pas
sing days. "The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom."
John Bunyan commented that he that had not the "begin
ning" had neither the "middle" nor the "end!"
God had said "Return to dust." Now Moses prays God to
"Return" to them with forgiveness and blessing: "Return, O
Lord, how long? and let it repent Thee concerning Thy
servants. O satisfy us early with Thy mercy; that we may re
joice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the
days wherein Thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein
we have seen evil. Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants,
and Thy glory unto their children. And let the beauty of The
Lord our God be upon us: and establish Thou the works ot
our hands upon us. yea, the work of our hands establish
