State religions are older than the Pharaohs. Wherever in the world you find a particular re- ligion or denomination supported and protected by the state to the exclusion of all others, there Is a state religion. Perhaps a state re- ligion is better than none, but this is an arguable point. One thing is sure, the found- ing fathers of America had seen state churches in action, and they were determined that this kind of religion should Dr. Foreman never take root in Amerlca's free soiL Even if the founding fathers had never seen state religion in practice, they could haw read their Old Testament and learned much by its light. State rehgion is dangerous because it depends for its success on the character of the man who happens to be the big boss or dictator at the time. Solomon was head of his church as well as of his nation. The same can be said of David, who ap- pointed some of his sons to be prlesis though (hot being Levltes) they were not eligible for church office. At any rate, the Jewish people of those times were long used to having the kind of re- ligious observances and worship which the king prescribed. So when a bad king came along, Jerob0ara, t] e mas of tlm people in IsraelfollowedhimwRh- out asking quesUons. IfJeroboam said bull calves were quite all right as objects of worship, then that w~ all they needed to lmow State religions tend to mn dow~ hill whenever the goverameatget$ Into the hands of mean or mali- cious men. Another reason why state relig~'on is dangerous at worst and low-grade at best is that when religion comes under the control of government it is managed like any other depart- ment of the state with the result that religion becomes a branch of politics. Disaster in Israel How did religion fare when it got into the hands of that enterprizing young organizer, Jeroboam? After that silly speech by Rehoboar~, there w~s a ~reat uprising among the Israelites and* a major secession. Rehoboam found himself only bargly hold- ing on to two tribes,' whil~ Jeroboam had in his fight grasp all the rest of the nation. He set out to make new centers of wor- ship, and new methods andfo,r.ms of worship. Disgusting astt~ems to us, he actually told the people that the gold-plated calves ia the new holy eittes of Bethel and Shechcm were the gods who had brought their ancestors out of Egypt. Made Israel to sin T exo w re good traits Jeroboam, as tlm story shows, But his good points were scrubbed out by the bad. Always after, wards, calf-worship would remind l~mple of Jeroboam. The tag that got attached to his name was who made Israel to sin. He did not force Israel to like the hooves of the gilded calves; he just set the example. Our ancestors used to think it would be one of th~ joys of the redeemed saints tA visit the brink of hell and so there the torture of poor lo8 souls. More sensitive souls W~oulc find the sight intolerable, for am might readily picture a lost sou~ crying out to the sightseer, ~0~ should be here! You were the first who made me sin!" Could one endure it, even In heaven, ff onS knew what every one else kn~: This is a man who encouraged his brother in sin?

There is a tflace where I can find Him always--in Church. Will you come with THE CHURCH FOR ALL ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citizenship. It is a store~ house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regu- larly and support the Church. They" are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support.
