NOTES

CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS - I saw a report recently that Christian Scientists are signing up for Medicare. Can you believe it? Doesn't that seem highly inconsistent for those who don't believe in the use of physicians and medicines? Did you ever read the book by Mark Twain in which he exposes the Christian Science religion for what it really is - a fraud?

PONTIFICAL ELDERS - Christian Array tells of "the elders of a congregation" who "hung a brightly colored paper on the wall stating that only the King James and American Standard Versions would be used in their church building." Elders more and more exercise the authority of a dictator in binding their decisions as if such are the very law of God. The sad thing is that the submissive pew-sitters obey the elders as the Catholics obey the pope! Thus they let men rule over them, rather than the Lord Jesus Christ. It is so sad.

A little common sense would prevent most divorces - and some marriages.

It takes real courage to change your mind about something when you know you ought to but would rather not.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. - Abraham Lincoln
