ORGANIZED ATHEISM IN TEE
Atheism is aggressive in America
today. We now have the "American
A—oriattnn for the Advancement of
Atheism," which was recently formed
in New York, where it now has head
foartei*. The Association applied for
a charter, which was denied; ye* they
in geiag ahead with their work.
We do not know why such an asso
ciation should be interested in break

foundations of our government is

energy, and time to change the whole

puts God first to a system of atheism

The principal work of the associa

Naturally, one thing appeals te

course, they appeal to the vanity

ef science, and they drdive a wedge
bateeen the young student of scisnce
and the God of science, the Creator
of the scientist, and the Maker of the
things which scbience discovers.
Sometimes bitter controversies rage
among Christians, which always wilts
the faith in some one.
When Christian people get into con
troversies with themselves and others,
outsiders naturally fall to understand
that we are possessed of God and the
love of Christ end obedience to the

HOW DO WE KEEP THE LORD'S
If we were to attempt to answer
that queationjn full it would take too
much space. In fact, no one person
can answer the whole question. If he
is good enoygh to describe the wor
ship of the good, he will not be bad
enough to describe the bad of the
worst of us.
The people in Christian nations do
pretend to keep the Lord's day for
three reasons: Jesus arose on that
day; the Holy Spirit came on that
day; and sn that day the disciples met
Now, some sleep, some fast, asms
spend the day in woridy amusements.
No law compels men to be religious or
to worship anything or anybody; and
unless we have a conscience towards
God seven days in the week we can
not consistently keep one Lord's Day.
The pilgrim fathers kept the day
and worshipped on that day.
Our national and State governments
make it a holiday and regulate trade
and commerce on that day.
Every body favors the law, but no
body seems willing to keep it. Every
body leaves their business Saturday
withoyt a thought of returning to it
until Monday, ercept the seller of
pleasure products. There seems to be
a spirit existing in most people to
force the sale of drug-store products,
auto supplies, and pleasure resorts to
furnish them on Sundays. That ap
plies to the grown-ups, too.
We see the children playing marbles
baseball, and other games on Sunday.
They, of course, are not so mjjch to
blame for playing a little, becu'ise the
examples set them by the elders are
The home, the school, the church is
not teaching the great principles of
worship and reverence as it should be
There are even those who hide a
way at*poker on Sundays, and still
others who gather at soma dark cor
ner and drink liquor. So Sunday
closes on very few true and consist
ent keepers of the Lord's Day.

Since Bear Grass Township has held

I went to Washington the other
day. I visited "The House of Rep
resentatives," they were in session.
What I mean by being in session,
the tax bill was up for debate and
they were arguing on "Better Golf
courses for the medium salaried
man." I suppose if the World
Court bill had been up, they would
have been talking on "Shall Amer
ica park oblong or parallel."
Well, then I went over to the
Senate. They had adjourned, so I
fek that America was not having
such a bad day at that. We were
only 50 percent inefficient THAT
You know we all joke and kid
about Congress, but we can't im
prove on them. Nomatter who we
elect, he it just as bad as the one he
replaced. So with all their faults
„ w$ love 'egi. They are as food a*
the people who vote to put them
there, and they are 10 times better „
than the ones who don't vote at all.
They are like "Bull" Durham,
they are not perfect, but they are
the best in their line.
P.S. There will be another piece
in this paper soon. Look for it.
