"Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage," Galatians 5:1. The only time we need to look back is to recall a lesson learned, or to glory in what God had done for us. Remember, for those whose lives are centered in Christ, the best is always yet to come. How often God gives victo- ry And then we revel in the deed. While present opportunity Slips past its bloom and turns to seed. --Gustafsoqb When we live in the pa, we tarnish the present and ignore the future. Sunday was a glorious day in the Lord.

As we consider the election year, many are judging thee.an: didates on theh" different views and policies. Each citizen has the right to know where each of the candidates stand on the dif- ferent issues. It is quite possi- ble that out of ten citizens who vote, you might find seven, eight or even nine sets of values. What may be a priority of one may not be the priority of another, because each one may have a different idea of what govern- ment should do.

Noah at the instrtmtion of God, warned of a flood ofj,idg ment and built%n ark. Everyone knows the story that for forty days and forty nights it rained. The Earth was covered with the flood waters and every living thing not in the ark perished. Finally, Noah is allowed to exff the ark and confronts a world much different than before he went onto the ark. After Noah came off the ark, God spoke to Noah and gave him instructions for the "new world." It is in these instructions that we can find the answers to the questions posed previously.

Verse 5 says, "And sure- - always at work for you. Betty Carpent00 z Circle Meets ly your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of a man; at the hand of every man's brother will require the life of a man." God is telling Noah that whoever or whatever kills another, that life shall be required in return. But the next verse sheds much light. It says, "whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man." At the very foundation of human government is the sanc- tity (for in the image of God made he man) and the preser- vation of human life. God com- mits to man the responsibility of carrying out capital punish- ment on those who would will- fully take the life of another. Life is a wonderful gift that C,,od has given to each and it is a shame that so many do not regard the sanctity of life that God has afforded. In this the year of electing a president, may the instruction of God ring clear in our ears about how sacred life really is. This nation cannot be faithful to the Word of God and have in her positions of leadership those who support the willful termi- nation of human life. At the beginning of human govern- ment is the responsibility to pro- tect the sanctity of human life. How can we as a nation tolerate in our leadership positions those who would knowingly and will- fully end the life a child before that child is allowed to enter this world, mature and experience the blessings of God that have been enjoyed by those who would end that life?
