Decatur Daily (Newspaper) - October 17, 1970, Decatur, AlabamaThe Decatur daily. Saturday morning october 17, 1970 studying the Bible equipping our8elve8 for god s will scripture a Tajet 119 9-16 ii Timothy 3 14-17. By r. H. Ramsey today a lesson makes use of a Section of psalm 11�, one of the most remarkable of the songs employed in the Temple services of the ancient hebrews. It is the longest of the psalms and divided into Twenty two sections. Each of these sections is designated with a letter of the hebrew alphabet and in hebrew each verse of a Section begins with the letter used to designate its Section. The question asked in the opening verse assigned to this lesson would indicate that the problems faced by today s Young people in trying to Lead clean lives Are not indigenous solely to the age of aquarius despite All the talk about a new morality. Just As the problems Are not new neither is the solution. The text from psalms provides an answer which centuries of re search and discovery have failed to improve upon. Those who live according to the word of god find most of the problems they face already settled for deep personal convictions upon spiritual matters. There is no substitute for meditation on the word of god. Timothy is an excellent example of one raised according to the scriptures. He was born into a Home divided racially and religiously. His Mother was a jewess his father a greek. Timothy smother and grandmother were devout believers in god and they instructed him from Early childhood in the scriptures. For them the word was not something merely to be studied in the synagogue it was a Way of life. Paul probably met and converted Timothy on his first missionary journey. On his second journey he took Timothy along As a Helper. Now awaiting death in a roman prison Paul wrote to encourage Timothy to continue in the things he had teamed from childhood. They had been proved they were trustworthy. These things in eluded the gospel he had Learned from Paul As Well As the old testament scriptures Learned Golden text Tench me o lord the Way of thy statutes and i shall keep it unto the end. Live me understanding and i shall keep thy Lawi Yea i shall observe it with my whole 119 33, 34.

Poor pay r Eason for ministerial exodus them. But it is not easy. As the psalmist discovered it requires a total commitment. He declares he has spent his entire life and Energy to seeking god and prays that he will be kept from straying from the path marked out by the divine commandments. By keeping the word of god in his heart the psalmist had the right thing in the right place As a Protection against sin. But having gods word in ones heart is not enough. If it is not translated into one s personal life it is of Little value. The words in the heart must become words in the Mouth for to declare the judgments of god engraved them More surely upon the heart. Even memorizing the wording of gods word is insufficient we must meditate on them Ponder Over them scrutinizing them carefully in order to discover for ourselves its meaning for our own time.

Catiline gathered some other dangerous men and made secret dans for murdering Cicero and seizing Power by Force. But Cicero discovered the Dot just in time. In the Senate before All the leading men of Rome he denounced catiline in a stinging powerful speech. Catiline who was present ran away. In the next years Julius Caesar Rose to supreme Power in Rome Cicero opposed this because he Felt it was destroying the Republican system of government that he loved.
