W. E. M1KESELL,
(SEAL) SHERMAN SHAW,
THE DILEMMA OF THE UN
BELIEVER. This was the theme of the sermon
at the Church of Christ on Sunday
morning, when Pastor Bower said in
part: I '
The unbeliever and the infidel, the
skeptic and the agnostic have asked
many questions but have never stood
ready to answer questions. In this
is revealed the dishonesty of unbelief
as well as a certain kind of wisdom.
The theory under which they have
worked is that a vigorous offensive
will render a defense unnecessary.
They may not have recognized the
fact that a defense is impossible, but
such is the case.
ror instance nere is a question:
Whence did this universe come? The
believer says, "In the beginning God
created the heavens and the earth."
It is an answer that explains. But
let the unbeliever bring an answer.
The best he can do is to say that it
is the product of evolution which is
to say that things as they now are
constitute the result of an accident.
Air to breath the result of an acci
dent! Water to drink, sunlight, food,
in fact all life and all that contiibutes
to life is the result of an accident.
The man who can believe this possible
constitutes in himsef the only exam
ple of an accident. But to avoid this
dilemma the unbeliever has another
answer and this it it: "I DO NOT
Another question: Whence the Bi
ble? The believer says it is the word
of God and this is an answer which
will explain the book. But the unbe
liever says that it is the work of man
and this immediately involves him in
difficulty. Every book which man

writes must be rewritten because the
old ones are out of date, whether they
deal with history, scU-r.ce, psychology,
geography or what not. But the Bible
has been completed for nearly two
thousand years and the new discov
eries in any field serve only to con
firm the things that the Bible says
Again the Bible was penned by 40
different men over a period of 1500
yearB and yet the product makes one
book and it was never so with men.
To avoid this which he cannot ex
plain the unbeliever may say, "I do
Here is another question: Whence
is Jesus? The believer says "He is
the Christ, the Son of the Living
God." This explains his life and in
fluence. But the unbeliever says, "He
was only a man." But this does not
explain prophecies concerning him,
nor his birth of a virgin, nor his sin
less life, nor his matchless teaching,
nor his miracles, nor his ressurection,
nor his influence on the lives of men.
So the unbeliever can only say "I
DO NOT KNOW1"
When one is ready to say concern
ing these things that he does not
know it is only a step to the doubting
of our reasoning on any point and to
doubt the evidences of our senses on
any thing. This then is the dilemma
of the unbeliever that at last he must
say, "I do not even know whether I
exist or whether there is any exist
ence, and in fact the human mind is
incapable of any certain knowledge."
How pitiable and futile such a state
of mind and how much better to be
able to Bay with Paul, "I know whom
I have believed and am persuaded that
he is able to keep that which I have
committed unto him against that
lars, according to a statement issued
by Kenneth L. Cooper, Oregon Re
gional Manager of the U. S. Veterans'
Bureau at Portland.
"This indicates in some measure
the importance to every ex-service
man in the state, to have his war in
surance renewed and converted into
a permanent form of government pol
icy before July 2, of this year, the
time limit set by congressional law
for such reinstatement and conver
sion," declared Mr. Cooper. "We are
eager to have every war veteran in
the state of Oregon advised that on
less a converted or permanent form
of government insurance is taken
prior to July 2, the privilege of having
this government benefit will be denied
him forever. The term insurance au
tomatically ceases on this date."
The Red Cross ,The American Le
gion and other service organizations
are supporting this movement to have
every veteran who had war insurance
avail himself of his "rights before it
is too late. Mr. Cooper stated that
despite the fact that 6,674 ex-service
men and women of Oregon have ap
plied for government insurance
amounting to more than twenty mil
lion dollars, there are still thousands
of war veterans who have not rein
stated their war policies and many
who have failed to convert same. Fur
ther information and proper forms
may be secured from the Veterans'
Bureau, Woodlark Building, Portland.
Over 140,000 beneficiaries of de
ceased World War veterans are re
ceiving government insurance pay
ments involving awards amounting to
more than a billion and a quarter dol-
