Mr. and Mrs. Perry Lancaster, Mr. and Mrs. Rosetta Talton and Devil's Disciple Lesson for June 12, 1966 Socl~ground Scrlpturo: |l Kings 21;1-18; II Chronb le~s 33:1-20, D~otionol Re.ding: P~alm 143:1-10. Why do people go wrong? The fact is, nearly every one who dis- obeys God does so because of some one else. One of the worse kings in his- ,as named Manasseh. He is the Bible not only on his own ac- count, but be- cause he ~made Judah to sin." How do you make a nation sin? How doyou make any one sin? The answer is in another Dr. Foreman wordthelnspired historian-prophet uses: the king %educed" his people into sin. He was a kind of "devil's disciple" who lured (not lashed) his people into sins, worse than those of their godless neighbors. Let's see how this works today. We can easily imagine the line put out by the d~vil's disciples. No doubt Manasseh used some form of these same old arguments. 'SWIM WITH THE TIDE' Everybody does it..'. Every- body thinks so... Who sees any harm in it? It's the New Thing, it is the wave of the future... Statistics show..." and so on. ]Now wait! You can't use statistics ' by themselves to show that any- thing is right or wrong. You can prove by the books that tie con- sumption of heroin and mari- juana and sire,liar drugs is on the increase But that is a long daughter Cindy, Miss Georgia way from demonstrating that the Piper, Mr. and Mrs. William Wilt, use of heroin is growing less and Mr. and Mrs. Teddy Jackson, Mrs. ] less bad all the time. ~All the kids William Piper, Mr. and Mrs. Mel-t in school cheat one way or an- vin Piper and Patricia, Mr. Leeother, it's only a kind of game.~ What does that prove?

Mrs. Elda May Grove was a visi- tor Tuesday evening of Mrs. Os- car Grove and Mrs. Georgia Talton. Mrf and Mrs. Glenn Higgs and Miss Rose Marie Grove were din- ner guests Sunday of the farmer's )arents, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Grove. Painful Accident Mr. Charles Jackson who works in Millville met with a very pain- ful accident while at work. In some way a driver using a truck ran into Mr. Jackson. breaking a foot and badly bruising the other. The one foot was entirely mashed. Mr. Jackson is in the Charles Town Hospital. He hopes this will not be too bad a break and can soon be back on hiswork again. Charlie, we all send our best wishes for a speedy re- covery. I~~~~ - :": = Mrs, Harry Shirley Mrs. Edward McKee and daugh- ter, Linda, attended a tea on Sun- day afternoon at Cliffside Motel honoring Miss Jean Mongin of Brooklyn, N. Y. This was given by Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Mongin and Mrs. Anna Shewbridge. Mrs. Edwin Jurek and two chil- dren, Mrs. PaUl Ring and daugh- ters and Mrs. Kenny Ring and sons attended a picnic on Friday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Rol~. ert Putz and family. Miss Paulette Henderson and Miss Linda McKee Were omitted from the group of graduates from our community and we want to congratulate these girls. The Sen- ior Class left by bus on Monday morning for New York where they wil lspend three days. Miss Debby Shirley spent. Su~- day with Miss Susan Athey. Mrs. Herman Liskey spent the weekend with her daughter and family, Mr..and Mrs. Stanley Dunn. Dinner 'guests on Sunday of the Dunns were Mrs. Herman Liskey, Mr. and Mrs. Max Dunn and son and Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Dqlnn, Jr., and son. !~Jrs. Kenny Ring was hostess to a ,d~anley party on Tuesday morn, ing. The demonstrator was Mrs. Edith Jones of Martinsburg. Mrs. Naomi Barren and Mrs. Jane Bohrer "attended a bowling banquet on Saturday night at Shady Rest near Martinsburg. The Wizard Clipp Home Dem- onstration Club met on Wednes- day afternoon at the home of Mrs. Edward McKee with Mrs. Paul Clendenning as co-hostess. Mrs. Holmes White had the lesson on Viet Nam. Mrs. Betty Hovermale and daughter, of Leetown, spent Sun- day afternoon with Mrs. Harold Pastes aad ughter. steer you wrong." In Manasseh's time, as we look back on it, this argument seems and is pret.ty dreadful. For the ~best people" were the king and his court, and what they did was often cruel and wicked to the sickening-point. This evil king burned his own child alive as a sacrifice to the dark gods Molech and Baal; that was wicked no matter who did it. Sin is sin when committed by gutter- snipe or aristocrat. But at the time, it is a little hard (to say the least) to live differently from the aristocrats. This argument, by the way, is seldom honestly put. The ~best people" to whose ex- ample the devil's disciple points us are not always actually best. What is meant is the notorious people, the rich people, the social- register people, the playboys and girls. Those who get their pictures oflenest in the papers are not necessarily the best nor the wisest! MAKING IT HARD ~You don't want to make a martyr out of yourself, do you? If you stand against the crowd you will do yourself no good. People will think you are some kind of nut." For example, when a young man (perhaps against the advice of his family) decides to enter the Christian ministry, one of the tests he will be required to take is psychiatric. This is only right and fair, for a malt may be as unfit for the ministry for reasons of mental illness or weakness as by physical defects. But what is not sO right and fair is the fact that often these tests are set and graded by psychia- trists who are not Christians. Miss Lillian Myers Family Reunion Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Boyd held a family reuinion at their home here Sunday, May 29. Those pres- ent were Mrs. Robert Eilerton and family, Mr. and Mrs. Warren Eilerton and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Eilerton and family, Miss Evelyn Huddle, of Washing- ton, Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Grove, Mr. Alvin Trent, Mr. Bucky Har- ris and family, Baltimore, Mrs. Walter Ronemous, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Kisner and daughter, Mar- tinsburg, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Boyd, Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Boyd and Carol Ann and Mrs. Winifred Sammous and children, Washing- ton, Miss Shirley Smith and Mr. Larry Phillips.

Who doesn't stand gazing into the future, picturing that new house, thai; graduation day, that wedding ceremony, that deluxe-model car.., the thousand and one dreams that man holds in his heart? We realize that a worthwhile life must contain more than just material satisfactions. Without a confident; rame of mind, our future will be nothing but tension and ua certainty. Where can we find this inner feeling o courage that will make things easier for us every hour of every day? Millions of people find it in the Christian faith. The apostle Paul said that he was strengthened in everything he did by faith in Christ... and this truth is constantly being rediscovered by men and women urgently in need o omething they can trust. Faith is the key to peace of mind. With faith, you will be able to move mountains of frustration. .Copyright 1966 Keisler A vertising Service, [.,]c.: Strasburg Va..f.
