Belief in God

EDITOR'S NOTE: In conjunction with the lecture series, "This I Be-
lieve," The Daily is presenting statements of belief of prominent members
of the University community.
Pete Thorpe is president of the Interfraternity Council.
By PETE THORPEf
Over 5C years ago a young physician administered to the many
children who were stricken with disease in a local orphanage. In spite
of his tireless efforts, a fortnight later nearly all of his patients were
dead. Medicine was helpless before the epidemic, and the very founda-
tions of the physician's faith in Science and Himself were nearly
Some 50 years later I listened to my grandfather's story of the'
epidemic and found great truth in the maxim he presented: "You
cannot live without God, if for no other reason than that sometime
during your life you will need Him desperately, as I did at the or-
phanage. With Him, your life is richer."
I appreciate my God, not just in a formalized way, but more
perhaps in ways which are obvious at the moment only to me. I
ant humbled before His inspiration in nature's rhythmic splendor
and in man's creative strength. I begin my week with God in the
sanctity of His church, but hold His tenets to apply in a very
real way to my day-to-day living throughout the week. His Com-
mandments guide my daily decision and action. The Lord's Pray-
er is a simple reminder.
"Thy will be done," yet I am often puzzled by evil. Are decisions
and actions which appear to me in violation of God's Commandments
in accordance with God's will? I would kill my fellow man in war to
protect what I believe, yet how far can I compromise God's doctrine
of love? I value my -right to judge, but I ask God's guidance of my
I value my family and the love we share. Today, when so much is
valued in pennies, it is refreshing to find the family a bastion where
benevolence is not punched out on a time clock and carefully totaled
in red or black ink.
In my daily experience with my fellow man I have discovered
a fountain of knowledge. I have never met an individual, what-
ever his station in life, from whom I could not learn something.
True happiness is obtained through Christian charity. Only in
that measure which I give of myself do I receive happiness. It is
for this reason that I look to the ministerial, medical, or teaching
professions for my life's work.
Finally, my personal goal is perfection in whatever task I under-
take. I believe that any task worth doing is worth doing well although
I realize the human body limits me from reaching perfection in this
life. I look for God's resurrection of the dead and coAceive the human
soul as perfect and capable of ultimately reaching the goal for which
I now strive.
This I believe.
