The 66 students will comprise about one fifth of the 1974-75 freshman class. Other mere- ,bers of the class will be ac- ,cepted on April I. Among them will be William W. Sellars, son of Mr. and Mrs William A. Sellars of 711 North ;ixth Street, Florala.

The reception honored fresh- men who maintained a 3.5 grade average while pursuing at least 10 hours of credit during the fall quarter of 1973, according to the director of academic affairs at Tech. I MY MINUTE MESSAGE WHO SI~.LL WE BELIEVE? GOD OR MAN? Even preachers tell their people that" We all sin every day in thought, word, and deed." If they are telling the truth, then they are the devil's buddies (preacher included), for God's Word says, "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning..." (1 John 3:8). Even the devil himself cannot sin except by thought, word, or deed, therefore he" cannot beat such church members in the sinning game. Christ came not to save us in our sins, but from our sins. "...and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21). "Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works" (Titus 2:14). "He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His Word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him" (I John 2:4,5). "Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him. Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth right- eousness is righteous, even as He is righteous" (I John 3:6,7). Sin is never innocently, nor accidently committed. We know when we are sinning, yet go ahead and do it. God is faithful to forgive sins which are sin- cerely confessed and forsaken, but never while we hang on to them. Some folk are as insincere as the man who was supposed to have gone to his priest to confess his sin. He confessed that he had stolen a shock of corn. The priest asked if he stole all of it. The reply was, "Not quite all, but I plan to get the rest of it tonight." It is downright folly to go to church on Sunday and ask the Lord to "forgive us of our many sins," then go out to do the same thing over again. Don't believe the lie that the devil makes you sin. He can do no such thing without your consent. Turn to Christ in re- ality, let Him save you from your sins, then cleanse your heart, fill you with His Spirit, and lead you in the way of righteousness. This is life and life indeed. Sinning is the way of death. You are invited to our series of Bible Study on The Holy Spirit each Tuesday ,n~ht at 6-30, G. T. Bustin.
