The inspirations will appear in gospel concert moral Law defenders speak out editors note recent comments in letters to the Enterprise concerning a rated movie advertising that some Felt objectionable and branching off into other areas of moral concern have touched off a barrage of other letters both criticizing and defending the position of churchmen. We Are including Here today a selection of such letters. I to the editor i have just finished Reading and de Bettencourt s a historical letter Issue of 8-11-76 i am not a pastor and have never held an office in the Church in my sixty years. On the other hand it is apparent that the a assorted sensations to people of lesser stability must be contagious to de Bettencourt Tor the following reasons. 1 Sampson Deliliah. And the others mentioned Are old testament people and the old testament was written for the jewish people who lived under mosaic Law 2 if or. De Bettencourt is a Christian As he infers then he lives according to the new testament which teaches us to a shun All appearance of evil 3. Too Many of us take a stand on patriotism Community affairs and on christianity by membership and Mouth Only. Even As the pharisees that prayed on the Street Corners we seem to have the same ilk in present Dav 4 he hit the Nail on the head at least in one Point when he said a a clue to the solution of the Christian Delemma is in the above statement the Delemma being that so Many that claim to be followers of Christ Are a Mission Field instead of being a missionary Alden l Hayes Baker ave. To the editor the letters i have read in the past few Days aimed at me made me think of the verses in proverbs 26 4 and 5. Therefore. I will say that when people attack a person instead of his principle it shows that they really have no support for their position and it can be said of pornography a in print or movies a As Lincoln said of the liquor Trade it has defenders but no defense however one question was directed in my direction that deserves an answer. The question was asked How do christians know so much about pornography. The answer is simple we see it All around us and when our evening paper comes to our Homes and we open it and see nakedness vulgarity and ads in Public newspapers and Public places that insult decency one need not ask How one knows about such things. Another mentioned that he did not live in a religion about Christ but lived the religion of Christ. Fine then that one must stand for decency for High moral standards. For sexual Honor and stand against pornography a including so clouding so called adult Book stores a rated movies Etc. The word of god still stands a with its ten commandments with its instruction concerning godly living concerning marriage and the relation of men and women in life with marriage being the highest and the holiest of All human relationships the Bible teaches that our sexual nature is a gift of god to be a source of Joy and Blessing in life for those who enter into god s blessings a marriage is honorable in All and the bed undefiled but whore mongers and adulterers god will judge Woodrow w. Robbins Lexington Avenue Baptist Church to the editor this is one time i cannot get quiet i must speak out for Jesus especially to people that have the attitude of Jenny Hagar of Trinity. Tuesday Augustio. Letters i do not Tell people what to do and How to live. I Only set the Best example i can and Pray that others will learn from it. As for the pornographic movies i do not know what is behind the door i do not remember the last time i went to a theater because there is nothing on i would waste my time watching. I read All reviews and several family movie guides before my children Are allowed to go my advertisement for Jesus is not bumper stickers on my car. But by the Way i live. You can count me As one who will continue to buy your paper if All ads and articles she is referring to Are Cut out. I done to read them anyway. I have made my Choice for heaven and Pray others will do the same and know the inner peace i have. I have read several letters recently on your editorial Page speaking against Jesus and about people who Are poor examples for him. Now let s see one standing up for Christ. Donna Russell by. 2, Trinity to the editor i would like to make a few statements in regard to the letter written by Jenny Hagar. It was so pathetic. I Felt i had to write not to sock it to her in the name of the lord As she stated. I will admit there Are so called christians hiding behind Church doors but there also Are some True born christians right out front fighting for Christ and his cause. For the True christians Are the substance holding this old world together for when we Are gone this will be a horrible place to be. Even though most of the things she mentioned Are True that a where sin has brought our world to. I have always found you will defend the master you serve and that s one reason for defending mine. I know through his blood i am a True born again Christian looking for his coming. For we Are going to a place where we no longer will have to look on the smut pots of satan talking about advertisements and billboards. Everything will read a holiness unto the lord Quot even our pots and pans. I can hardly wait. Margaret Driggers High Point coliseum auditorium Greensboro North Carolina sat.

Donald Sams minister anon denominational Church i Victory in truth f Baptist Church i i i 300 e Springfield re High Point Oral history method popular Ridgecrest no. Today s Church members and their Church histories Are often total strangers but the historical commission of the Southern Baptist convention is suggesting a Way to get the two better acquainted the solution according to Ronald tonks. Assistant executive director of the commission. Requires a tape recorder and a few interested persons the result is a permanent record of the Church s history through the recollections of its people the process is known As Oral history and while it is a very simple and useful Means of obtaining and recording information. Tonks estimates that most Church members have no idea what it is Oral history a he explains simply a is a systematic Way of obtaining recollections by the use of a tape a using a tape recorder to learn the Story of your Church was one of the topics during the recent historical commission conference Here at Ridgecrest Baptist conference Center. While the written account is the most common form of recording history. Tonks Points out that very few churches have a written history a Many people would like to write a history of their Church a he says Quot but they will usually never do Oral history on the other hand offers several advantages Over the written form including the fact that it is a very personal account it gives color to your history rather than having a history that is just statistics a says tonks Quot it really represents individuals a a Church history int recorded in the minutes but in the ebb and flow of people involved in the tonks adds that another significant advantage is that a person does not have to be an eloquent writer or an experienced historian to become involved in Oral history student conference scheduled Ridgecrest . Ridgecrest Baptist conference Center will be the Host and College students will be the special guests during the annual student conference Here aug 21-27 sponsored by the National student ministries of the Southern Baptist sunday school Board the week Long conference will feature daily sessions in Church Model building in an Effort to help students better understand the purpose of the Church and their relationship to it participants will have the Opportunity to organize a Church from Quot scratch an activity designed to highlight Churchman ship the groups will meet each Day to plan All aspects of Church life including purpose program administration and personnel.
