The Printed
Message of
There is no one item, at
such small cost, that ap
proaches the Christmas
card as a remembrance of
a friend by a friend.
There is nothing that so
cements the rood will of a
business institution as a
thoughtful greeting to its
customers, clients, associ
ates and competitors.
Without forgetting the
sentimental feature of
Christmas giving, the print
ed greeting comes mighty
close to being GOOD BUSI

and firm.

By Rev. B. J. Mirtort, Pastor of
the First Baptist Church, Alliance)
Christ and the Socir.1 Life.
(Continued from Tuesday's Ilerrdd)
The modern church leaders yeem to
overlook one of the most imnort:int
parts of the young people's nutuvo
the social. This forms IX) per cent of
the makeup of the young. At nn early
age, yea, as balx-s we see it cropping
out. The church thnt seeks to 'velop
the religious nature of the young tnd
neglect the social, is not looking after
the needs of the young, or developing
a well rounded character, but a lop
sided Christianity.
Man is a four-fold creature. He has
a physical, moral, social and religious
nature. To develop one or more of
these and neglect one or more is to de
velop a lopsided character. Thj trou
ble with the church of the present p.ue
is that it has been doing hat very
thing; consequently the church hns not
the attention of the young as ome of
the social organizations have. "At the
right hand there is pleasures for ever
more," are the words of one who was
looking at man's entire nature.
A preacher of this town condemned
the writer because he ' attended a
wrestling match, as setting a danger
ous example before the young. Put
nowhere in the Bible do we find that
the young christian is to be robbed of
the usual pleasures of life, be they
athletics, or the more general social
gatherings. The writer as a young
man was an inveterate boxer, .nd we
do not believe that now, as a minister,
we are any more moral than .ve were
then. There is nothing more manly
than a clean boxing contest or -nest-ling
for either man or woman.
Boxing is almost universally con
demned hv the minif trv of thi rnnnrrr-
but why? They can give no reann,
save mat it is "brutal." well, we love
football and baseball, and practically
every other sport going, but I must
ftflv. from e v norlonr a f rnrn vvifl-iiw
J - - r - - ' v . i ,
that football has boxing "skinned sky
high for real brutality" if we may so
call it.
These criticisms of boxing and
wrestling are in a class with the criti
cism of the writer by a woman mem
ber of his church, who said, "I think
that the pastor is setting a very un
christian example before the young
when he goes out and kills those inno
cent squirrels." She maintained it
was cruelty and would lead the young
to thinking of murdering human
beings, etc., etc. Yet that same
woman did not hesitate to murder her
neighbor's character.
Young people need recreation, ant'
Christ rejoiced in seeing the children
at play. (Matt 11:16-19.) The nee:
of good wholesome recreation is unl
versal, and some general principles are
laid down in the Bible for christians to
guide themselves by. The following
might be mentioned: We may indulge
in anything cbout the propriety of
whicl we have no doubt. Foi
Our worthiness as funeral directors is a fact firmly es
tablished in the public mind. Our equipment, our experience
and our politeness bring comfort to those who are in need of
our services. We are noted for our painstaking attention
to details.

Romans 14:13 says: "Whatsoever is of
doubt is sin." Each must make the ap
plication to his own life. Let every
man be guided by his owrf conscience.
We may ingnge in anything that we
cr.n do so to the glory of God. If by
going here or there, or doing fo ami
so, 1 am convinced that I am disgrac
ing or dishonoring the cause of reli
gion I nin to refrain. 1 Cor. 10:31.
Read for yourself.
We enn r'o anything that will t.ot
hurt our in!luerct:s as christians with
the non-christian . Some amusements
that ore harmless in themselves hurt
our influence with a certain class that
we are trying to win fo rGod. II. Cor.
8:10. Paul said that if eating meat
causes his brother to stumble he would
refrain from eating meat. This is to
to be taken comparatively and figura
tively. We may engage in any amusement
that we can make a matter of prayer.
If you cannot ask God's blessing upon
what you are doing, or where von are
going, it is a pretty good M$n that it is
wrong. Can you ask God to help you
win at a poker game? If so, play
poker. Can you at k God to helo vour
effort at slandering the neighbor 1 If
so, slander. Can you ask God to help
you dance well in the publLs dance
hall? If so, it is your duty to go.
This argument applies to all amuse
ments of any kind. This may keep
you away from certain church gather
ings. Who knows?
Again, we may go anywhere where
we have reasons to believe Christ
would go with us. Would Christ feel
at home in a brothel, or on the .'loor
doing the shimmy? If o, it is not
wrong for you to go there. If not
it is wrong for you to go. I may do
anything or go anywhere in which I
would like to be found, should Christ
return while I am here. For lie is
coming again suddenly and we should
be found doing what would not cause
us to blush were he to surprise us in
it. These few principles are unerring
guides to amusements for christians.
