GOD QUE HEAVENLY FATHER.
itcrnstioaal Sunday Sckool Lesson
for October 5, 1941.
Golden Text: ?Our Father who
art in Heaven, Hallowed be Th7
. Name." Matt. 6:9.

Matt. 6:2, 24-33
.With this lesson, we begin a new
quarter and a new series of discus-
' sioris, the. aim of which is to famil
iarize the' pupil with, great Christian
, teachings with a view to building up
Christian Faith and life. During the
next three months, we will consider
the following subject: "God Our
Heavely Father," "Christ Our Sav
Jpur," "The Holy Spirit Our Helper,"
"Civic Responsibility Regarding Bev
erage Alcohol," "Sin and Its Conse
quences," "Repentence and Faith,"
"Union with Christ," "Prayer and
Thanksgiving," "Christian Love,"
"The Nature and Work of the
Church," "Christian Stewardship,"
"The Coming of God's Son," and "The
It is proper that we begin such a
series of lessons with a consideration
of God. There are what might be
called six different attitudes or con
victions regarding Him. There is
first: atheism, which says there is
i no God; then agnosticism, which says
vjnai we do not Know mere is a uoa,
and that it cannot be definitely as
certained whether or not there is a
God; thirdly, there is polytheism,
f'ich is the religion declaring there
i many gods: Egypt, Babylon,
me and Greece were all polytheis
in their religions; fourthly, there
is pantheism, which says that God is
in every thing. Most of the religious
systems of India are pantheistic,
which accounts for the fact that they
worship elephants, and sows, and all
the rest of the animal creation.
Fifthly, there is the scheme of deism,
so prevalent during the Seventeenth
and Eighteenth Centuries, but now
distinctly in the decline, which as
serts that though God originally
made the universe, He now is aloof
from it, transcendant above it, takes
no part in its affairs, and in no way
participates in the lives of men and
Vhe rise and fall of nations. Finally,
there is theism, which affirms there
is one soverign God, who rules the
universe, who guides and redeems
.and loves men. The entire Bible is
theistic in its attitude. The Chris
tian religion is the great theistic in
its , attitude. The Christian religion
itf the great theistic . faith of the
world." (Dr. Wilbur M. Smith).
While men has never been able of
himself and through his own wisdom,
to come to a true knowledge of God,
God has revealed Himself to man in
three distinct ways through Hi in
spired Word, the Bible; through Hid
works; and through His bon, our
Lord Jesus Christ Our lesson con
aiders particularly the revelation of
God in His Word.
We learn something of God when
we consider the statement in Genesis
1:27: "And God created znan in His
Own image, in the image of God He
created him; male and female creat
ed He him." Hence we assume that
the human body, as divinely fashion
ed in Eden, was not out of harmony
with the divine form and essence.
Man is self-conscious, he can say "I",
knowing and distinguishing himself
from personalties and objects. The
same is true of (jod; lie is also a
person with self-consciousness and!
egoity. In this respect, man is like
Him, made in His image, but with
the difference that God is infinite
while man is finite. God endowed
man with a will, with intellect and
with emotions. Here also is man
like God, who knows and feels and
Man still bears the image of God,
is still capable of knowing God, but
the image has been marred by sin,
the communion broken and these can
only be restored through Jesua
Christ, who is the perfect image of
God, both God and man.
What is God's relationship to man ?
That is answered by Jesus Himself,
when he speaks of God as "Our
Heavenly Father." The normal re
lationship between father and son is
one of love. The father, loving the
son, provides for the son's needs,
exercises watchful care over him,
guides him and desires for him
every possible opportunity for him to
develop into the finest! possible man
who lives the happiest possible life.
This is true of our Heavenly Father.
While it is sometimes necessary
for an earthly father to discipline his
son, because he loves him, so often
our Heavenly Father, God, has to dis
cipline His children. This disciplin
ing is often misunderstood, but in the
end is always best for those dis
ciplined. What should man's relationship be
to God? The love between the son
and the father should be reciprocat
ed. Therefore, if the son loves his
Heavenly Father, he will be an obed
ient son. The proof of our love to

Him far our obedience to His com-!
aiandments, so states Jesus himself.
True love has its obligations. It de
tires to be pleasing to the loved one,
to please the loved one and to do the
things which the loved one desires.
We cannot say, "Lord, Lord," and
then not do the things which He has
commanded us to do.
While it is possible for God to
love us when we do not love Him, 't
is impossible for Him to have fellow
ship with us. The privilege of fel
lowship with God is the highest,
loftiest, most exalted privilege ac
corded to men, for if we have fel
lowship with Him, we abide in His
love, we can labor with Him to bring
in His kingdom and, ultimately, to
be with him in glory forever.
3 Traffic Fatalities
During Eight Months
The Highway Safety Division re
ported this week that Perquimans
County had 3 traffic fatalities charg
ed against its 1941 .record at the
close of the eighth month of the
The 742 persons killed in traffic
accidents in North Carolina streets
and highways the first eight months
of this year represented a 45 per
cent increase over the 509 persons
reported, killed in the same period
last year, and the number killed
through August of this year exceed
ed the number killed through October
of last year.
"Although traffic fatalities all over
the country have increased this year
as a result of increased motor ve
hicle registrations, soaring gasoline
sales, the stepped-up tempo of life in
general, and various other factors,
North Carolina's record stands as a
shameful commentary on the
thoughtlessness, recklessness and
inattention of our drivers," declared
Ronald Hocutt, director of the safe
"Only two states in the country
have a higher mileage deajh rate
than North Carolina and only one
state is charged with a greater per
centage increase in fatalities," he
Sixty-six of the 100 counties show
ed increases, 23 showed decreases
and 11 stayed on a par with last
year's record. Some of the heavier
increases were recorded in Wake,
Columbus, Davidson, Durham, Cum
berland, Onslow, Pender and Samp
son Counties. Some of the 1940
high fatality counties which are
showing decreases this year are
Forsyth, Edgecombe, Nash, Cabar
rus and Catawba.
"It looks like we are headed for
the worst year in the state's history
with respect to traffic deaths,"
