The first institution established was the home. The divine plan of God for mankind is the home: husband, wife, and children raised in the environment and instruction of the home. The Bible says that God created man in his own image both male and female (Gen. 1:27). The Bible explains how God did it. He formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nose the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Gen. 2" 7). He caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam and God took a rib from his side and closed up the flesh and from he rib of Adam, God made the first woman and brought her to the man. Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of myflesh; she shall be called woman because she was taken out of man. Therefore shall a mn leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh" (Gen. 2: 21-25). The Apostle Paul sanctioned the home, saying, "Let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband" (I Cor. 7:2). In the light of the Biblical concept of the hm. ,, the Apostle Paul said, "Let not the wife depart from her husband" (I Cor. 7:10). This can also be stated the other way: let not the husband depart from the wife. These words sound strange to a society that has made it a course of life to weary the courts with divorce suits. Two out of every three marriages in our country now end u in the divorce courts. The Lutheran Church just mnde a survey and discovered that if a family went to church re- gularly together, only one out of six hundred went tc a di- vorce court. The Bible instructs the family in every problem area. Even failure of one of the marriage partners Lo accept Christ and become a Christian was not grounds for divorce in the New Testament Church. If your husband or wife wasn't, a Christian, you were still obligated to live with him or her. If one or the other left, it ws his or herper- serial responsibility. God says that the believing wife might lead her unbelieving husband to Christ if she would live with him and be a real Christian before him (I Cot. 7:12-16). Concerning virgins, the Bible says hat a youn$ ladv is to be one. A young lade should be a virgin when she marries. God does not allow freedom at this point with sex. A young man is to keep him_lf pure for that one special young lady. A young lady is to keep herself pure for that one special young man. The breakdown of the home an the pagan in- fluence in a society can almost be meastredby the number of virgins that society has. A virgin is a young woman who has not had sexual relations before her wedding day (I Cot. 7:25-33). Concerning widows and widowers, the Bible says that the husband or wife is bound by the law as long as one or the e final shipment of 1973 let Pickups is now on our 350 or 454 V-8s, ton or ton Cmtom Deluxe, Cheyenne, Cheyenne Super. other of the marriage partners is living. Whose law are we talking about? The Apostle Paul is talking about God's law. The law of the land may not be the law of God. It should be, but sometimes it isn't. If a husband dies, the woman is free to remarry to whom she will; "only in the Lord" (I Cor. 7:39-40). Of course the sme applies to the man. If a man*s wife des, he is also free to remarry. This freedom of which God speaks is a qualified freedom. Such a person is no*. free to marry just anyone, but free to marry anyone "in the Lord." This means anyone of whom God approves. Once you're m:rried, you're bound to each other for life. T, L. Roach and Son pur- chased a 1973 Ford from Pal- mer Motor Co. Betty J.

The heartache and sorrow that we have tn millions of homes shouts this louder than you do. Multitudes of homes, husbands and wives, have fallen short of God's standard nd have brought untold misery and distress upon themselves and millions of little children. We would ,Io well to listen to God's Word and ,o it accord- ing to God's law that the Christian witness might glorify the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. And is not the judgment of God upon our land because we have failed to heed God's law? This letter was received by The Press this week, Maybe it would be good to hear from other residents about local issues, The Press will publish any letter seat, but we reser- ve the right to condense if space is tight. No, it isn't a Bad Dream. It is a nightmare and a senseless farce. The "sides" have dug in for a prolonged siege. No matter that some or our people are going without medical care. If these people were required to conduct their personal af- fairs the way they manage hospital affairs, they would in- dignantly refuse. But the sacrifices others have to mke do not matter; only that these people have their way. Donley County cannot afford to say one word abou Water- gate. This m,ss makes Watergate smell like a rose. My stomach isn't strong enough to go to our local churches on Sunday and listen to these hypocrites mouthpious phrases. If they are Christian examples, I'll take my chances at home.
