The service of Ccm:firmation is of great significance in the life of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Campbell said. The reason for this ~he said is that Confirma,tion is a pu~blic affirmation of fa2th in Chr~ and Confirma~tion or the l~ayin,g on of hands in the Episco- pal Church is a "rite treasured since t)he days of the Apostles". The Bishop said this rite is de- scribed in the eighth chapter of :the Book of ACts of the B4ble. BishOp Campbell, whose work of e~a,ugelizing has ~take,n him to many parts of the country and as far abroad as South Africa where he led a Preaching Crusade, is ,the spiritual head of the more than 18,000 church people who compro mise the Episcopal Church in this 'state. In ~he summer of 1958 he joined Anglican bishops from all over the world in the Lambeth Conference held only once every ten years in I~udon. "Confirmation is not just join- Jng the Church" the Bishop de- e}ared. "At Baptism, a Person be- i comes a Child of God, a member of christ and is grafted into the Body of ChrLst. t'he Church. At Confirmation, the seven-fold gifts of grace are given by God and the ,primary a~tion is the work of God the Holy ~host.

Come in Tod~Yl things which have been begun." But who is "He" ? It can be none other than God. For without his approval it does no good to brag about anybody else's. The of tim So from the very beginning, our nation on its officiat seal has ac- knowledged that is was begun and must continue under the eye of God. His approval is vital. We put "In God we trust" on our coins.We open Congress with pras, er every day it meets. We administer sol- emn oaths to public officials. Even in the army, where you would per- haps not expect it, the Department of Defense sees to it that every man has the opportunity to wor- ship God. At Fort Knox, for in- stance, there are n(yt less than 20 chapels provided by the army ~nd used every day by Roman Cath- olics, Protestants and Jews, It is not a novelty, or a peculiar thing,, for a nation to recognize God officially, and to keep God--- a god of some kind---before the eyes of the people. Armies have had chaplains since back in the times of the Romans--not in the modern sense of course, but pro- fessional religious men who ac- companied the troops. The Chinese emperors used to sacrifice annually to the GOd of Heaven. We all know about the Japanese Shinto, a terra- ion all tied up with intense patz~ot- ism. In Abraham's time and long before that, the priest-kings of Ur used to sacrifice to the city's spe- cial deity, Nannar the moon-god. Every nation has some God. Even the wild Scythians, who bowed to no other god, would thrust a bare sword into the ground and offer sacrifice to the sword, Where We Hang Our Whatever a man hangs his heart on and depends on, said Martin Luther, that is his God. What a man hangs his heart ~bn, in reality, may not be the God he officially" acknowledges. "In GOd we trust," says every nickel of our money. But do we trust God or our money ? What do we depend on? ICBM's, those intercontinental ballistic missiles that can destroy whole cities at one shot ? IBI~ machines, _.those immense robots that can solve problems faster than any human being can ? What is it that can render us' secure ? Space satel- lites ? More education ? Democratic government? A favorable trade balance--keeping other nations al- wsys in debt to us?-Capitalism? These are all gods--somebody hangs his heart on these, some or all of these, and depends o~ them. But they are not God. The Ood of Jesus The Christian belief about is summec[ up in Paul's title for him in Romans 15:6: "The God nd Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Any sort of alleged god who does not measure up to that, is no true God. Any "god" who bears no family resemblance to Christ, any "god" Christ wo~ld have disowned, is no God. This proposition sh@uld set us thinking. One of the thoughts is this: A fav- orite bo@k of Jesus in the Old Test- amount, one he quotes often, we~ Deuteronomy. Now" the book o~ Deuteronomy makes ~t great deal of the idea of a nation under But close to the very beginning of that book you will fred the Ten Commandments. The true God t~ the one who gives to man the law by which he lives. No man and no nation has any right to suppose that either a nation or a man can flaim the favor and protection of ~od, and at the same time defy him by breaking his laws. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, because he is indeed the High God, says to every nation that professes to be "under" ~ Do ~ it~ (Based on eutl|ne~ eal~t~lhte~ l~r the Division of, Christtlan ~an Education, National Council of the Churches Ot Christ in the U.
