Roblin Review (Newspaper) - July 3, 1952, Roblin, Manitoba VOLUME FORTY JULY 1952 Religion Day by Day CAKLYLK Of Scripture Judges To get to the background ot our lesson we to under stand that some men ot the tribe of Benjamin bad been guilty of a very foul Their men stood by ax was the custom of Eastern and the rest of the tribes of Israel rose up and went to war with and in indiscrimatc vengeance nearly wiped out the whole Then they saw it had been a It was go ing to be tragical thing that there should be one tribe miss Ing before It was made more tragical by a reckless oath state of The people of Israel said In effect This was a Juct we wort admit that it was anything We wont say that it was wrong we will Insist stubbornly that It was and to make that stick well brand all those who didnt take part in it as pacifists and and make our self jus tification known to all men by punishing them as What we did has pulled down ut ter misery upon and has set the nation back for a generation In its and the results are very and unless we find some way of getting out from It is going to be just too We wont admit we were but well break our necks trying to undo what we have But thats an ancient story Why bother the modern people of Roblin with it These preach ers always seem to be thinking they had taken while their ears j In the But were that iney would not alAfter the first world war the low the f Benjamin to inj Germans would not admit un ter marry wlUi the other I der any circumstances that Bo they look around lor a way j their bloody onslaught upon hu I have spoken before of the manlly had been They Turkish wUh in Korea rather cotnicul way they took of avoiding their outli nut to let their daughters into the tribe of Benjamin But today we see the grim and utterly unreas ogable action they tooktoward the men of Jabesh It is rather a wacky peace of First It is very clear that the rest of Israel saw clear ly that the thing they had done WM a disastrous error and had brought misfortune unpon 80 they sat down and said Was there any group among us who didnt nave a hand In this thing there were the folk of Jasbesh All all the menxrf unmarried women to the had remorse for the results of the but no repentance for the sin of And the Allied pow er a would not admit wrong In the rather fantastic provisions ot the peace treaty but they were ready to see that it wasnt going to work out and they want ed to advoid the consequences of So the Germans made the Jews their men of Jabesh Gil their scapecoats and the other powers retired gracefully behind a smoke screen of isola tionism and the Bolshevik bogey and nobody admitted sin and no body repented before God and where true repentance might have saved the un poatponed an kaeletat stories of the Bible have a nasty habit of turning out to be so will it be with us this men of Benjamin for Which amounted to saying This war thfe war upon Bentime Is the peace to become jamin was a crazy blunder the an orgy of self justification be only people who had too much fore or a revival of re sense to have a hand in It were the people of Jasbeah GHcad so well go and wipe them off the map because they werent as big as fools as the rest of Now how can you explain a think like that The only ex planation I can suggest is that we have here an example of re morse with out That is when we are sorry for the consequences of our actions but are not willing to come be fore God and say that our act ions were sinful and we are sor ry for We do not get into that complex and miserable pentance before Against Thee only have I sinned and have done this evil in Thy How many nations and how many communities and churches and how many indiv idual souls are going to say that to God We had no sin and we havi not we are pure and the enemy alone is evil In Gods How many will say that to themselves and their fellow men Is It to be the haunt Ing misery of remorse or the salvation of repentance that is to
