..... PAGE 3-A Rescuing Rev. Those Who M 0il0ugh Are Perishing C01ummst I heard a story the other day about a father and his young son who were in an art gallery. They were looking at a painting of man in a boat who had reached down and taken hold of the hand of a man in the water. The young boy looked at his dad and asked, "Dad, is he trying to save him from drowning, or is he just shaking his hand?" Now, I don't know if this story is true. However, I believe it paints a very graphic picture of the state Christianity today. All too often, those who desperately need us to rescue them - are only receiving a handshake from us. THE WORDS of an old hymn written in 1870 by a blind woman, Fannie J. Crosby, come to mind: 1: Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, snatch them in pity from sin and the grave; weep over the erring one, lift up the fallen, tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save. Refrain: Rescue the perishing, care for the dying, Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save. 2: Though they are slighting him, still he is waiting, waiting the penitent child to receive; plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently; he will forgive if they only believe. Refrain 3: Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter, feelings lie buried that grace can restore; touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness, chords that were broken will vibrate once more. Refrain 4: Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; strength for thy labor the Lord will provide; back to the narrow way patiently them; tell the poor wanderer a Savior has died. Refrain Listen again to the verbiage of the first verse: "Rescue the perishing" "Care for the dying .... Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave" "Weep over the erring one" 'q_Aft up the fallen .... Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save." Oh, my! Would to God we still did this today. What a differ- ent world this would be! I am afraid that Christianity and the church of today has strayed a long way from what it was in Fannie J. Crosby's time. I'm afraid she wouldn't even recognize many of our "churches" as churches. The message has been compro- mised; the Sunday morning show has been maximized; an expectation of commitment by the members has been min- imized, and sadly, the influence upon society by Bible believ- ing Christians and churches has been marginalized. NO, WE'RE NOT TOO GOOD at rescuing the perish- ing anymore. However, on the brighter side, we've become really, really good at shaking hands with them! It's time we got back to our mandate to rescue the per- ishing.

NOW THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT- Whitesville Road Elementary students very much enjoyed a recent production of School House Rock Live presented by the Columbus State University Theater Department. The production is based on the Emmy Award-winning 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series that taught history, grammar, math, and more through clever and tuneful songs. Pictured are.
