; onrasting the influences of Ge(ek
and Hebrew' philosophy on Christian-
ity in his address Sunday night at
the University service on "The Sons
of Zion and the Sons'of Greece" Dr.
Reinhold Nicbhr, of the Bethel Evan-
gelical church of Detroit. stated1 that
"against all the contributions of the
Greeks to the Christian religion, those
of the Hebrews seem small, but they
gave one which greatly offsets the
others-conscience."
He addedi that Greece made the ma-

but that the moral vigor of our civil-

(lea over Hellenistic civilization. "TheII
Jewish prophet found God not in fire,
earthquakes or volcanoes, but in the
inner urges of the human soul and
conscience." Greek theology and phil-
osophy were directed towvard self-ex-
pression which was characterized by
the expression "nothing too much."
They believed that virtues became
sins when over-indulged, and this doc-
trine is followed by many people to-
day, hie believes. "Most of the peo-
ple on the street today are Greeks re-
garding their morality of respectabil-
ity-a morality of compromise-which
accords those respectable who escape
vulgarity," Dr. Niebuhr continued.
He declared that the Hebrews have
nt a morality of compromise, but
one of conflict not between nations
but within the mind of man, which
makes a bid for victory. Human be-
ings must exercise vigor in their mor-
ality for they have "all the possi-
bilities of heaven but the instincts
of hell." This is the reason, he point-
ed out, why philosophers in the past
have failed in declaring mankind eith-
er absolutely good or absolutely bad
sii~.e they have capabilities for either
