Bob & Barbara Renner Brevvton Road--222-4188 Andalusia, Alabama MY MINUTE MESSAGE NEIGHBOR, AtCt: YOU A CHRISTIAN, OR A CHILD OF GOD? WHICH? Maybe you would like to ask, Are they not the same? They are when terms are rightly understood. A Christian in reality is a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ -- not merely somecreedclaiming to be Christian. Millions of professed Christians in our day no more resemble Christ than Hindus and Mohammedans resemble Him -- no more resembles Christ than a sow resembles a sheep, and yet these same folk would be angrily insulted if they were told that they are heathen as truly as the snake-wor- shippers of India are heathen. (A heathen is one who does not know the true and living God -- not just know a little about Him), A Child of God is a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, and a Christian in reality -- not a sham professor who has no as- surance in his heart that his sins are forgiven, and that he is a new creature in Christ. ((See 2 Car. 5:17; Gal. 6:15). A child of God has the witness of the Spirit in his own heart that God is his Father (ram. 8:16). The child of God partakes of the na- ture of God, therefore loves the things which God loves. If He loves the things of the world, then the love of God is not in him. (1 John 2:15). By the first birth we partake of human and sinful natures, and be- come members of our earthly families; by the second birth, the birth of the Spirit (John I':12, 13; 3:3-8) we partake of the divine nature, and become members of our Heavenly Father's family (I John 3:9, I0), therefore we are new creatures, with new appetites, new ambitions, and new aspirations, and "old things are passed away." We become so utterly different from the world order that even professed Christians, who are not children of God in reality, don't know us, can't understand us, and think we are mentally un- balanced. They said the same about Christ, Paul, and all the saints of God. Childrenof GOd bear family resemblance -- the likeness of God, therefore are unlike the world. G.

Dur- Radar In The "Alabama highway users re- ceived the surprise of their life when they were issued traffic tickets by State Troopers us- ing aircraft to clock speeders and spot drinking and reckless drivers during the Fdurth of July holiday period", State Pub- lic Safety Director, Colonel E.C. Dothard, said today. "This was the first time the recently purchased aircraft has been used in traffic arrests, and was exceptionally well accep- ted by those arrested, with the first arrest being made in Mont- gomery County at 10 a.m. on July 4th", the Director said. "Recapping the enforcement activities for the weekend", Colonel Dothard said, "4,288 arrests were made and 2,805 warnings issued during the 102 hour period by Troopers utili- zing radar, Vascar, aircraft and unmarked cars." "We feel the increased en- forcement activity enabled us to keep the death toll down in spite of multiple fatality-type ac- cidents which plagued the State", he said. The leading causes of the holiday accidents were Driving While Intoxicated, Speeding, Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road, and Failure to Yield Right of Way, according to Pub- lic Safety records. Fifteen fatalities and 115 in- juries resulted from 264 acci- dents investigated by Troopers, a reduction of approximately 25% in fatalities and 50% in injuries and accidents, over the 1972 holiday period, which was of comparable length. The director said, "The in- creased enforcement activity graphically illustrates where traffic laws are enforced, traf- fic deaths decline." "And" he continued, "Alabama high- way users can expect a contin- ued enforcement of our traffic laws."
