But it does ap- pear as a danger to those who profit by lies. It often challenges people's prejudices, and cuts down the power of tyrants. Before the American Civil War, a man in the South wrote a book on the economics of slavery. The book was not a masterpiece of litera- ture, but it did show one thing very clearly: Slavery was not profitable, in the long run. Was the book welcomed? Was the author hailed as an advanced thinker? Not at all. In more than one ~ate that book was forbidden to be sold or read. People might argue a long time whether slavery was sinful or not. But the facts and figures in that book showed a simpler thing: slavery actually did not pay. There was no way to answer the argument, so the man was simply shut up. In our times a prominent American magazine published a long article on social- ized medicine, in England and Scotland. It showed beyond a doubt that the British system of medicine costs a lot of money. But there were two facts that were kept out of that article: one, the British people seem to like that system; and two, they are healthier than they used to be without it. Those two facts are challenging; but to some people they seem to be dangerous, so they were not mentioned. How to Ouard Truth You might think that Christian truth, surely, needs no guardians. Ye~ Ohristian truth also can be distorted, and needs to be pro- tected against half-truths that sound like Christianity but are not. Christian truth also chal- lenges all the forces of evil Min- EVERY once in a while you hear some one talking about "guarding the truth,"--generally It "sacred" truth, that is to say truth which the speaker regards with a kind of revererme. In wrR- tug to a younger friend and as- sistant of years' standing, Paul the Apostle urges him to guard what has been entrusted to him; and when one reads the whole letter, both letters, of Paul to Timothy, we see wh~t is the main Dr. Foreman thing that has been entrusted to him: namely, the Truth. This he is to pass on to others when he dies (and before), men who can in turn pass it to future generations Truth is a treasure; but when truth van- ishes, there is no treasure to pass 011. The Weakness of Truth There is an old story about a king who wanted to find the wisest man in his kingdom. So at a ban- quet he asked this question: What one thing is strongest in the world? One wise man said "Wine." Another said "The King." The third said, "Women --but truth is stronger still." And when each had given the reasons for his choice, all the people shouted ~r the third man: "Great is truth, and mighty above all things." To this day people speak islets and other Christians who stand for truth need no~ be sur- prised to be called starry-eyed idealists at best, or communists at worst. Yet there is need for modern Timothys who will guard what truth they have learned. Know the truth! Stand up for it! Teach it! are the three best ways of guarding truth, now as always. ~Based on outlines copyrighted by the Division of Christian Education, /~atlonai Council of the Churches of Christ In the U, S.

Enjoyed Homecoming Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Pearl, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Garrett, Mr. C. N. Hawk and Mr. John Love mot- rolls, a large table with all kinds of delicious cakes, coffee, iced tea, root beer, lemonade. The greatest of all was the fellowship of dear friends the Pearls knew thirty four years ago. The Pearls attended church there for ten years while living in that com- munity. So many dear faces we did not see as they had passed to the great beyond. It was home again for Mr. and Mrs. Pearl. Dr, McMurray was pastor then but we met the new pastor Everrett A. Hellmuth Jr. This was a glad reunion for everyone present and hope to meet with those so dear to us again. Sunday dinner guests with Mr. and Mrs. Andy Seal were Mr. and Mrs. Buck Welsh and two child- ren, Doris and Peggy and the lat ters mother Mrs. Daisy Fritts of Charles Town.
