Is Selected By
Atheists Who Do Not See '
Revelation In Jesus Are
Attacked In Sermon
The purpose of the Old Testament
is to show the coming of Christ as a
revelation of God in a moral uni-
verse, the Rev.Charles W. Brashares
told his congregation in the First
Methodist Church yesterday.
Taking as his text "God was in the'
world but the world knew it not,"
John 1:10, Dr. Brashares scored
"those Christian atheists who do not
see in Jesus the revelation of that
before Jesus." The picture of the re-
lations between God and man before
the first Christmas was painted by
Dr. Brashares who asserted that "be-
cause some of us are living Christless
lives today, we may profit from the
foundations of Christianity which are
laid in Judiasm."
Because God made the world, it is
a moral universe, the Old Testament
reveals, according to Dr.eBrashares.
Evil is a destructive force, he said,
"and today a preacher does not need
to preach about hell. He can just
point to it. War is the hell made by
wrong international relationships.
Depression is the hell resulting from
injustices in men's dealings with one
another. As a man soweth, so shall
he reap. Universe penalizes wrong
Most persons who have any scien-
tific ability at all believe there is an'
"intelligence beneath things," he said,
poiting to snowflakes, electricity and
light as examples of divine planning.
"The earth is crammed with Heaven,"
lie continued. "God is in His place,
and He is working in the world to-
This the Old Testament tried to
teach the earth, he declared Friday,
"although ancients wouldn't listen."
"Today men without Christ need
a clearer revelation of God's love, Dr.
Brashares declared. "That was the
state of man before the first Christ-
mas. It is true of much of humanity

the Christmas season, when they
should be dominant, the Rev. Henry;
Lewis, of St. Andrew's Episcopal
Church, in his morning service yes-
terday described three pitfalls in the

The most universal hindrance to
the development of a truly Christian
life is the present emphasis on per-I
sonal material gain, an idea growing
out of the present social order in
which we live, Mr. Lewis declared.
The fact that we do not let the un-
employed and the weak starve is a
witness to the presence of Christ,
but the "rub" comes in the social
order which expresses the selfishness
and blindness of the human heart,
'a society which makes most of us
deny daily the essential ideals of our}
faith and which puts its emphasis on
wealth and power."
Mr. Lewis pointed out the way to
gain a system that approximates more
clearly the commonwealth of love is
through "group action."
One misconception he said, is that

Graham Back From First
Conference On Subject
In Urbana, Ill.
The University of Michigan has
been selected to be host to the second
meeting of the North Central States
Fish and Game Conference, which
will be held here sometime next fall
or in early winter, it was announced
recently by Dr. Samuel A. Graham,
research associate in the Museum of
Zoology and chairman of the com-
mittee in charge of arrangements.
Dr. Graham and several members
of the Museum of Zoology returned
early this week from, Urbana, Ill.,
where they attended the first meet-
ing of the conference. The others
from Ann Arbor who attended the
conference were Milton B. Trautman,
assistant curator of fishes and Dr.
John Van Oosten, aqauatic biologist
of the United States Bureau of Fish-
The meeting was sponsored by the
Illinois State Natural History Survey,
and was attended by representatives
from Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa,
Mississippi, Minnesota, Wisconsin,
Seven papers were presented at the
meeting by the members of the Uni-
versity who attended. Mr. Trautman
gave three talks, Dr. White delivered
two, and Dr. Graham and Dr. Van
Oosten gave one apiece. Fish and
game management was the main top-
ic of the papers.
Another pitfall is "the general in-
ability of human beings to put their
faith in the thingswhich they can-
not see," he stated. The practical
affairs of everyday living make their
demands on us so that we put off,
building our faith in the unseen," Mr.
"By recalling Christ's heroic spirit,
his love for humanity and his rela-
tionship to unseen and eternal values
as Christmas approaches, we would
become worthier witnesses to the
Christian Father," Mr. Lewis stated.
Of Dr. Lemon
A plea for world "fellowship" of
Christ to replace the creeds of nations
like Germany, Italy, and Russia was
made yesterday by Dr. William P.
Lemon, pastor of the First Presby-
Fundamental to international "fel-
lowship," Dr. Lemon believes, is na-
tional "fellowship" which is exempli-
fied by several foreign nations but is
totally lacking in the United States.
The worship of the United States,
he said, is largely devoted to "get-
ting on top," although the Christian
religion does occupy a goodAportion
of this country's worship.. A reme-
dial effort must be directed to make
the common man realize that "for
every leader, there must be a mil-
lion followers," Dr. Lemon declared.
He pointed to Japan, which has
developed rapidly since 1868 when
all its feudal lords voluntarily do-
uated their land and power to the em-
peror, who is now worshiped as a
deity by the Japanese. Russia, in her
idealizing of Lenin; Germany, in her
following of Hitler with his "pure
blood" campaign; and Italy, in her
following of Mussolini, also exemplify
this "followship" characteristic, he
said, but that they must all some day
be united in common worship of

Mr. Stephenson called attention to
the fact that although every sin is
primarily an offense against God
himself, most of the sins of members
of society also offend or injure fellow
humans. He used the text from Pet-
er, "Above all things have fervent
charity among yourselves, for charity
covereth the multitude of sins," and
pointed out that the love of God, as
an active force in the heart of a
Christian, will enable him to forgive
any offense against him which is
within the all-embracing forgiveness
"We ought to be able to forgive
anything that God is willing to for-
give, to forget anything that God
will forget, to bury anything that
God will bury," Mr. Stephenson de-
clared, and he urged that every Chris-
tian having a less tolerant and chari-
table spirit toward the faults of his I
associates should feel dissatisfied with
