PA YS SCARBOROUGH 1 i Among Servicemen The Truth Shall Make You Free Barboursville, WV 25504 LET'S ROB GOD One of the biggest challenges I have faced in my Christian life is the one God placed before me in the book of Malachi, chapter 3, Verse 10: "Bring ye all the tithes into the store. house, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room en0ughto receive it." The word prove means to test by experiment. Simply, here is what God is saying to us: pay all your tithes into the church;and I will in return send you many, many blessings. BUt how sad it is that so few of God's people have ever put God to the test to see if he really meant what he said. I, for one, have proved God many times. He has never let me down; and I am sure if there are ever any failures, it will be on my part. No doubt, there are many so.called preachers who have never paid tithes. I was visiting in the home of a man who had been ordained to preach the gospel for years; he had a well.paying job; his wife was working; but he told me he just couldn't bring himself to pay his tithes to the Lord. On another occasion, I was one of five officers in a church. We were wanting to build a new building, so the pastor called us in a meeting and asked if we would each agree to pay ten per cent of our income into the church so we would know how much to plan on the building. Two of the officers present said they were sorry they could not dothatdue to the fact they were having too hard ~ time trying to make ends meet. We just went ahead and built the church without their tithes; and the last account I had of them, they were still having a hard time. what I am trying to say is that the reason a lot of Christians are having such a hard time financially is that they are robbing God of what is rightfully his. The prophet Malachi posed this question: "Will a man rob God?" Yes, they sure will. A lot of Christians are robbing God and are suffering because of that. God said, "Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me." No wonder you have such a hard time trying to keep all the bills paid even though you are making more now than you ever did. GOd said you are living under a curse, and the only way to get the curse lifted from your life is to quit robbing God. It has been said that the surest way to kill a church member is to shoot him in his pocketbook, that is the most sensitive nerve in his whole body. I think a lot of people must leave their pocketbook in the seat when they come to the altar because they never seem to be very religious about money. I guess it is a good thing God made the plan of salvation free to those who would receive it. That's right; it doesn't cost a penny; but it will cost you everything you have (body, soul, ability, time, talent, and your money) to please God in your Christian life. NAVY LOG A general purpose disinfec- tant for use as an anti-germ agent has been developed by the Naval Research Laboratory. The ingredients are safe, effec- tive and inexpensive. The new substance can be used todisinfect hospital floors, wards and operating rooms without interrupting normal activities. It can also be used to sterilize food processing mach- inery and disinfectaniing land areas. Although the disinfectant is I designed to kill the most re- sistant disease-causing spores, it is also gentle enough to be used on most areas ofthehuman body, including open wounds, the NRL report says. Experiments have been con- ducted in which the new material has been used to disinfect fully clothed men without irritating their skin or damaging their wool, nylon or cotton clothing or their shoes. It has also been tested on electrical de- vices such as smail drills and radios without affecting their normal operation. Construction material has al- so been disinfected without evi- dence of corrosion or other deleterious effects. ,r" Scar- October meeting County in Andalusia. of of students With him who will read this tribute. from the Florala worked with the in Covington re his health forced wife continues the W.

The "Rent Watch" program, Kilpatrick said is aimed at pre- venting landlords from illegally boosting rents to take advantage of the increased Social Security benefits which become payable this month.

I read the letter that G.M. from Fla. wrote about the bad taste of people sitting around with nothing but a two inch strip around their bottoms and I agree. The Bible tells us that we should have more ~espect for our- sehres and others--the 22nd chapter of Deuteronomy. It certainly embarrasses me to see people in such a fash- ion. No wonder we have so much sin in the world. L.M.S.--Va. LAUREL HILL CITY COUNCIL HOLDS SPECIAL SESSION Dear Louisa.
