TEXT TAKEN FROM ROMANS "What is Chiist To My was the subject of the sermon de- livered by the Rev. Frederick B. Crane, pastor of the Presbyterian church, Sunday evening. His text was taken from Romans "And if Christ be in you the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteous- ness." "Christ supplies us with a moral said the Rev. Mr. Crane. "The Christian religion or the gos- pel of Christ is a religion of ethics. Any person who comes into a vital relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is bound to recognize that He offers a code of morals to which his disciples must give heed. It hardly seems creditable that some men have no moral standards at all but in some cases that appears to be almost wholly true. They do not know right from wrong and therefore practice that which is to the Christian unrighteousness with- out any consciousness of wrongdo- ing. Motive For Obedience "The second phase of the rela- tionship of Christ to my morals is a motive for obedience to his moral code. He not only gives me moral standards but he makes me want to obey them. It is a very common saying among men that if we are good, if we do the best we can to keep God's law or to follow his teachings, we will be saved and go to heaven. No man or woman will ever to heaven that way. The holy scripture teaches that God is satisfied with nothing short of per- fect obedience and that perfect obedience is a requirement that no man can meet." Contimimg, the Rev. Mr. Crane said: "Christ gives us the power to obey the code and live according to his ethical standards. If we are nue and Seminary street, water was standing in the street to a depth of 18 inches, and the Bream and Plank garage and numerous cellars in that section of town were flood- ed. The Gettysburg fire company sent a pumper to the Bream and Plank garage to pump out the cel- lar, Sunday evening. Engine Room Flooded This morning, the fire company had a pumper at the engine room at Gettysburg college which was flooded. The Reading railroad right-of-.. way was washed out at Boyer's rake factory curve, near Table Rock, and a train which left here at 5 o'clock this morning was unable to proceed beyond that point. Cinders and gravel were dumped into the washout this morning, and an incoming train, due here at o'clock, reached Gettysburg at o'clock this afternoon. The main line of the Western Maryland railroal was washed out near Thurmont, and trains over that division were being routed through Gettysburg this morning. Most Roads Flooded Practically all roads out of Get- tysburg were covered with water Sunday afternoon and evening, and many tourists were marooned here for the night. Rock creek overflowed its banks early Sunday, and by late afternoon was running across the York. Han- over and Littlestown roads. On the Littlestown road. Rock creek was four feet over the highway, and White run was again on the ram- page, after having reached flood stage proportions last Friday eve- ning.
