Gospel meetings A series of Bible studies is scheduled Oct. 7 to 13 at Lethbridge Church of Christ, comer 21sl Avenue and 2SUi Streets Kenneth Sterling from Caldwell, Idaho, will be the speaker. The public is invited to take this opportunity to investigate Church of Chnst beliefs, says pastor Donald Givens He stressed no collection or emotional pressure is involv- ed in these meetings Nixon pardon fails forgiveness test NEW YORK (AP) From a Judeo-Christian standpoint, several theologians say that President Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon was not in keeping with the way forgiveness works in a religious sense. They say that in moral terms forgiveness cannot take effect without acknowledge- ment of guilt and the need of being forgiven and that this factor has been missing in the case of Nixon. From the Biblical per- spective, "you can only have forgiveness if there is some kind of admission of fault be- fore or after the forgiveness is says Rev. Dr. Walter Wink, a New Testament scholar of New York's Union Theological Seminary. "Otherwise you can't accept it or recognize the need of it." In Nixon's case, "he has consistently denied he was morally Dr. Wink said. "He's still pretending the space he's in is clean space. "That's the reason so many people are incensed by the pardon. It has legal force, but no moral force. The moral issue has been swept under the rug, and that's what's tearing the country apart. People have been kicked back into the skepticism that they thought President Ford would deliver them from." Rabbi Dr. Robert Gordis, professor of Bible and the philosophies of religion at New York's Jewish Theological Seminary, said he knew of no religion which teaches that forgiveness can be extended "without some clear, definitive avowal of an offence, whether against man or God. "While not impugning UK sincerity of President Ford's motives, his act does not meet the requisites of forgiveness in religious tradition. Forgiveness pre-supposes the readiness of the person forgiven to recognize his offence. Until that happens a pardon makes very little sense. It's illogical. It violates the principles." The religious scholars said an entirely different point was involved in regard to amnesty for draft evaders, since amnesty means a wiping out or not forgiving. "H says okay, he'll drop it, forget it. with no implications about who's nght or Dr. Wink said. In the pardon, however, Rev. Dr. Martin Marty of the University of Chicago Divinity School said Ford had dispens- ed "cheap grace." "I'm really puzzled when church people say Mr. Ford was accurately reflecting the Christian he said. "The president may have been moved by his faith, but he declared mercy, before there was a sign of contrition, remorse or repentence. Nor had there been a declaration of guilt. In Christian terms, a pardon at that point of the se- quence trivializes the sense of justice and right." Julie Harris stars in Graham movie THEOPHILUS THAI NAWWMWDCD DCD wiE! N MSTIVEWTHE TWRE'S NOTHING IN A WAMt CHURCH OF CHRIST Ocmald R Gtverts. EvangsfltS! Sunday: Bftrte Study 10 am WenMec 11 am and 6pm WaA: 730pm 37MW72or WELCOME By GEORGE CORNELL AP' Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) To ac- tress Julie Harris, all good drama is religious. "If it tells the truth about life and the human heart, if it speaks of men's failings and also their grandeur and hope, then it's she says. "That's my idea of religion- dealing honestly with life." That's why Miss Harris sees nothing exceptional about starring in a religious movie produced by a branch of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Once she had read the script, "There was no ques- tion in my mind about she said in an interview. "It's a great story. I'd do it any time, anywhere." She referred to the f Urn ver- sion of Corrie ten Boom's bestseller, The Hiding Place, an account of a Dutch Chris- tian woman's resistance against the Nazis to save Jews and her own miraculous sur- vival in a concentration camp. Crusade attendance declines RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) The Archbishop of Canterbury joined BiUy Graham for the opening of the United States evangelist's Brazilian crusade, bat less than half the vast Maracana stadium was filled Graham filled Maracana, the world's largest soccer stadium, with an estimated persons for a rally in 1960. There were on hand Wednesday night for the first meeting in the five-day crusade Graham is holding in predominantly Roman Catholic Brazil. "Many of our world leaders are warning about a third world Graham said. "Man has proven himself to be a moral failure. God is the only nope at tins hoar." The Archbishop of Can- terbury, Dr. Michael Ramsey, spoke of the need for Christian unity. The spiritual bead of the Church of England is winding op a tour of Anglican congregations in Latin America. "The movie is like a tre- mendous plea, 'Oh God, we must love one Miss Harris said, her slender hands upturned in appeal. "Jesus told his apostles that they could forget everything else, but to remember that, to love one she went on. "It seems like such an easy thing to do. Yet we don't do it." Miss Harris, a native of Grosse Point, Mich., who now lives in Irvington, N.Y., holds a string of top honors for roles in plays and movies. Concerning her recent four- month shooting schedule in Holland on the new movie, in which she plays the part of a woman who so thoroughly re- flects Christ's love that she cannot hate even the Nazis whom she opposes, Miss Harris said: "She will live with me the rest of my life." As for her own religious views, she said: "I believe in the presence of God in all of us, and in his revelation in Jesus Christ." Although an Episcopalian, she said she's not a regular churchgoer because she dislikes the "endless sermons." "Words to me are very con- she said "I like sim- plicity. But I've never been without the church in my heart. I have a lot of inner communion with myself and she paused, and added, "with Jesus." Blood opponents unknown to Red Cross By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Lethbridge Red Cross of- ficials have denied any know- ledge of religious sects op- posing their collection of financial donations. A letter to The Herald, Sept. 19, alleged "three Christian denominations who are oppos- ed to blood transfusions as medically unsafe and unscrip- tural have a move underfoot to prevent the Red Cross from going door to door collecting money." A Red Cross spokesman said here this week the society is unaware of any religious groups in Southern Alberta op- posing fund raising campaigns of their organization. Wjthin the city, Red Cross is a United Way agency and does not collect door to door. Some rural units, however, may use this method of fund raising. Earlier, Keith Robbins, a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses sect denied Kingdom Hall members were in any way related to the allegation. Mr. Robbins has since observed he is unaware of any other religious groups in the area sharing similar beliefs about blood tran- sfusions. Mr. Robbins also noted that from to time Witnesses work shoulder to shoulder with international Red Cross teams in relief of disaster situations. The Herald has been unable to locate Marilyn MacGill, who signed the letter in which the allegation was made.
