Low Down Trade-In. Come in Today! CHARLES TOWN GAS PHONE 226 CHARLES Race Barriers It is not only in America, still less only in the "Deep South," that differences of race bring up the ex- )ression, "Not our kind of people." Wherever two races meet and com- pete, there is a race problem. The ancient Jews knew all.about it. Of course a modern American might smile at tht difference between Elisha the Jew and Naaman the Syrian. They were both orientals, weren't they ? But Elisba's friends, and Naaman's friends, would not have smiled about it. Jews felt pretty grim when they thought of Syrians, and Syrians felt pretty contemptous when they thought of Jews. They would not for a minute have considered themselves of the same race. The Syrians at tkat time were much the stronger people. They thought of Isralitcs or Hebrews (as Jews then were called} as a weak, stupid, dirty, inferior race. The Hebrews on the other hand by no means looked up to Syrians as noble examples and benefactors. They thought of thelTt as cruel men, oppressing the weak and living by power, not by justice. The two races might be related as enemy and enemy, or as master and slave; but not as friend and friend, not as equals. Yet Naaman and Elisha crossed the border of race. Barriers of Position Another difference between people which leads to the thought, "Not our kind--," is the difference which is caused by po~ition in sb- ciety, including difference of occu- pation. You can take twin babies and bring them .up in separat~ homes, one the home of an illiter- ate manual laborer, and the other the home of a banker or a college president; one boy will have no edu- cation and the other a very fine one; then follow the boys through life, and by the time they are 30 each one would be saying about the other (if he didn't know they were brothers), "Not my kind o: people." Elisha and Naaman were not only different by race, they were different by occupation and posi- tion. Elisha was a prophet of God, Ed Jones asked me to go fisMng with him last Sunday morMng and when I said l was going to church he asked, "WHY?" For a momeut, I was stymied. I lust couldn't think o/a good answer. Matter of ]act, it has taken me all week to thiuk el the reply I waist to give Ed. Here it is. Why do I go to church, Ed? Why do I breathe? Why do I smile When I see the sun in the morning, or shiver when I'm cold? Why do I love my wife and kids, and lose my temper when the lawn mower breaks down? Because I'm human, because I'm a man -- and because I have a God whom I love. This God cares enough about me to have sent His only Son to make the most supreme of all sacrifices --- for me, and for you, Ed Jones, and for all of us. I go to church to worship that God. I do not go to beg, but to thank Him for what He has given me. I go to ask Him for guidance and forgiveness. I don't have to ask Him for His love. I have that. So have you. So have we all.

Naaman had a kind of religion, a very dif- Day ferent one, but he didn't take even Sunday that very seriously. Elisha was a poor man, Naaman was wealthy, and a slave-owner. Elisha's most zpectacular labors had been the ~aving of lives (and saving Nan- man's was right in his line); Nan- man's business, as a general, was killing (including killing :Israel- ites). High-Altitude Crossing And yet Elisha and Naaman crossed the border-line 'drawn by the contrast between their social positions and work in life. How did they do it? They did it the way modern armies, or peacetime fleets of commercial)planes, can cross borders which once upon a time were formida~le and all but im- possible to cross. In the same way, the road across the barriers caused (for example) by race or by position or occupa- tion or money or education, is sel- dom a road through these borders. It is above them.
