Interpret Beliefs
f tProtestants
(Editor's Note: In this particular article of the Religious
Survey series, the purpose has been to cover Protestantism in its
later developments. The focus of the article has been more upon
the beliefs of Congregationalism, Baptism and Methodism. Al-
though other beliefs such as Lutheranism and Calvinism make
up an area generally known as Protestantism, such faiths histori-
cally belong in a separate category.)
Daily Associate Editor
A long tradition of individual freedom is one of the most important
concepts of the Protestant faith.
The Protestants feel that this individual freedom has made itself
felt in many aspects of man's life. They believe that the concept has a
direct connection with such forms of freedom as that of press, speech
and assembly. The Protestants like to believe that the best developmentj
of free democratic institutions has arisen in those nations where thel
Protestant spirit has been strong.
In connection with this strong ideal of democracy and freedom,
they are sure that their support of separation of church and state is
an important factor in preserving these ideals.j
* * * *
THIS CONCEPT can be traced far back to the origins of the3
movement when Martin Luther revolted against the existing Roman
Catholic church organization. Luther's protest was aimed at a system
of indulgences which had grown corrupt. His reform ideas consisted,
essentially of a shift from dependancy on the church hierarchy to
that of personal initiative.
Just what are the basic beliefs of the Protestants? On what
basis do they justify these ideals of individual freedom? Probably
this can best be answered by the Protestant conception of man.
They believe a man to have a freedom of conscience that allows
man himself to make all choices, even to the point of accepting
or rejecting God.
God deliberately made man with this freedom to act, think and
do, and therefore the acceptance car rejections of God and His will
naturally follows. However, man is also a mixture of potential goodt
and evil, therefore he needs to be helped and guided.1
* * * *
THE PROTESTANTS think of God as a personal being. They see
him as holy, righteous and loving. Infinite and transcendent though
He is, God is not the "totally other." God is neither an abstract prin-
ciple, a bare sovereignty, nor of inscrutable will.t
God hias made man a person in His image, and capable of fel-
lowship with the Creator. This fellowship means sharing His spirit
and expressing that spirit in all ways of life. The Protestants hold
that the Bible is the authority and guide for their moral and reli-
gious life, and by following this guide, fellowship with God will
be possible.t
God, acting as the. Creator, has produced the universe. At best, its
is only a transitory abode for a spirit (man). His life here is a pil-
grimage, a journey related to a more favorable existence beyond in a
form which we call death.
HOWEVER, AN IMPORTANT concept of the Protestants relates
itself to life on earth. Man seeks a pattern of human relationships

Renews Bid
For Deadline
Seek Legislation
Wednesday Night
The Student Legislature Human
Relations yesterday voted to rec-
ommend that SL pass another
time-limit resolution seeking re-
moval of discriminatory clauses;in
fraternity constitutions.
Acting on SL's condemnation of
the Interfraternity Council's new
"hands off" policy passed this
week, the Committee decided to
put the question to the Legislature
next Wednesday.
A 1956 deadline for an estimated
14 fraternities on campus to elim-
inate their clauses or lose initia-
tion privileges will be recommend-
ed to the Legislature.
The proposal is substantially
the same one passed by SL and
the Student Affairs Committee
last spring and vetoed by re-
tired president Alexander G.
Passage of the recommendation
was by a 7 to 4 count. Huma
Relations Committee chariman
Rog Wilkins, '53, said a majority
was achieved through the votes
of non-SL members serving on the

came on the heels of a resolution
passed by the IFC House Presi-
dents Assembly abandoning any
plans for putting pressure on fra-
ternities with bias clauses.
By a 22-17 vote, the IFC had
adopted the so-called Acacia pro-
posal which leaves moves toward
eliminating the clauses up to in-
dividual fraternities themselves.
IFC President Jack Smart, '52,
yesterday viewed the SL Com-
mittee's action as "unrealistic."
Smart criticized the group on
the grounds that "it hasn't given
us a chance to prove what we
can do."
He referred to the continuation
on an IFC anti-bias educational
program and the solicited assis-
tance of IFC officials in working
for purging of the clauses.
MEANWHILE, indications crop-
ped up that a substantial number
of prominent fratenity leaders
were seriously considering initia-
tion of a move for a special IFC
meeting before the SL session next
week. No regular IFC meeting is
scheduled before Christmas vaca-

One IFC member cited a possible
motive for the second thoughts as
lack of sufficient time to consider
either the adopted plan or a pro-

up by IFC last October, had called
for a reinstatement of last year's
IFC policy requiring fraternities
with bias clauses to support mo-
tions at national conventions
seeking removal of the clauses or
face IFC suspension.

mously rejected the new IFC plan,
