What Do I Owe God?
"Know ye that the Lord, He is
God; it is He that hath made us,
and not we ourselves; we are His
people, and the sheep of His pas
ture." Psalm 100-3.
WHAT DO I OWE GOD? This
is not a Thanksgiving sermon, but
just a very pertinent, timely ques
tion. As we look about us, even in
the midst of a world depression,
and compare our national situation
with that of some of the other
countries of earth, especially Rus
sia, we might well pray for a clar
ity of vision that would enable us
to see just what we have in this na
tion, and why we have it
Whatever we have of freedom, of
comfort, of concrete evidences of
national progress and well-being,
we nave because of what we have
so far had of the preaching of the
Gospel of the Son of God, and the
influence of Christian ethics in our
land; and whenever and wherever
that has been done away whenever
and wherever men have discarded
and thrown overboard God and
Christ and Christianity, we have
witnessed the most sordid and un
savory and terrible evidences of
what human nature is without the
leavenine effect and infliion of
Christianity. Whenever God is left
out of humanity's plans and life,
the beast in man eventually comes
uppermost, ana wh nave thp rirah
apeciacie oi educated, refined
beastialitv on the loose.
And we OWE GOD a tremendous
debt of gratitude for what w hn
maae possiDie ror humanity, when
humanity will avail itself of M'
provision: which debt ran nniv hp
paid by the giving of our lives to
uie service or the Christ That is
what we OWE GOD ourselves!
.wave you a Church hnm? Tf
not, we invite you to come and
worship with us. Test the welcome
of this friendly Church. For the
next Lord's Day the sermon toDics
are: For the morning service, "Set
Apart" And for the evening serv

There are others, but I have in
mind the idea of Government aid
for the rebuilding of the "slum"
dwellings of the cities and the de
velopment of "subsistence farms"
for many city folks who, under our
present industrial system, are un
able to survive when off the payroll,
except by charity.
I know an increasing number of
men who have found their way to
self-support in the depression by
getting hold of a piece of land with
some sort of a house on it and so
managing to get by, even when un
employed for two or three years.
But most city workers haven't the
means or the knowledge now to
adopt that method of self-support.
They have to be taught and to be
financed; but unless Government
does that, we shall never have a
permanent solution of our most im
portant social problem, that of un
employment. Horrors of war

It was only about three hundred
years ago, when the early colonists
were beginning to settle America,
that the Thirty Years War ravaged
Germany until the population was
reaucea irom 24,000,000 to less than
4000,000. Not ail were killed in war,
of course; most died of starvation.
Utter lawlessness prevailed outside
of the fortified cities. No person's
life was safe, and canibalism was
actually practiced, according to
James W. Gerard, former United
States Ambassador to Berlin. Hu
man flesh was even exposed for sale
in the markets of Heidelbereg in
1648, said Mr. Gerard in a recent
published statement! Polygamy was
legalized, to repopulate the land
Ambition and religion were at the
root of the Thirty Years' War. We
are hardly likely to have another
great war over religion, but ambi
tion may promote one at any time.

tne vicinity or my farm. Neighbors
