RELIGION IN LIFE: The Sources Of Church Teaching And Inspiration [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 22 July 1950
RELIGION IN LIFE! The Sources Of Church T caching And Inspiration (By Rev. H. V. Barratt, B. A., Corrimal Balgownie Presbyterian Church ) In last week's article I raised the ques tion of the 'Necessity of the Chiircli'. This week I want to go a step further aitd con sider on what the teaching of the Church is based and the sources of its message, since it is necessary and its teaching is relevant to present-day needs. The question falls naturally int'o two parts: first the place of the Bible as the source Book] of the Church and then second ly, and most important, th'e per-'] son of; Jesus Christ Himself. It needs to be understood , in th6 fli-st place that the Bible is] not a' text-book as we know such things nor is it a guide book nor merely a series of laws ; and regulations. Within its pages you will not And any for mal -statement on the nature of, Christianity nor can it be said that. the Gospels provide us-with a 'Life of Jesus' in the modern sense. ? ? The Bible gives us a re...

CHURCHILL'S PLAN FOR WORLD PEACE LONDON, Friday (A.AiP.). — Winston Churchill, speaking at Bath, yesterday repeated his personal belief that a greater war was not imminent.

South Division "Not Angels" [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 22 July 1950
South Division 'Not Angels' Sir, — It is a pity your report er did not include a full rbport on .the .brighter side of good football ' as ? played by both Warfis1 ' fbr' thie major part of Wednesday's , international. . The article did little but justi fy the forecast o'f a tough game, as'.' 'published in Wednesday's 'MerCjUry.' Comparisons may be invidious, , but today's 'H c'rald' carries 'little ' reference concern ing the incidents which made black news on the 'Mercury's' l'rbnt page. Unfortunately, the game was marred by too many cases of four play. However, your re porter's knowledge of the^ game must differ from that of Referee Un'derwbbd, whosie control of the game ; was Excellent. If the Englishmen had used 'every il legal 'tactic' in the second half, then penalties would have given SoUth 'Coast, a. runaway victory on goal-kicking form.: The Englishmen played hard football, ' but ' their opponents were not angels in black and gold. As,, forecast in Wednes day's 'Mercury,'; ...
Aid for Church Schools [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 22 July 1950
Aid for Church Schools SIR, — The Labor Party ' has souiided its death knell by the decision to give aid to denomin ational schools. A party . now holding office by a slender maj ority of only two seats cannot hope to survive the repurcus sions which will .follow, in the [wake of .this decision. -' We have' in Australia one of the. best . public- school systems in' the' world, where a ;free and complete education exists for all children, whether rich or poor. We are taxed to 'provide this sys tem-: throughout the State, ^ and there is plenty of evidence, now, that'' finances in regard- to edu cation are seriously curtailed and the lack of .adequate finance is causing serious overcrowding and shortage of school buildings.'' Yet the Labor Party proposes to place a double burden on the taxpayers', back. ' Everyone is fully aware that Roman Catholic schools are es tablished for the training of R.C. youths in the principles of; their faith, arid the absorption of their creed. The ' Prote...
"Peace Petition Phoney" [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 22 July 1950
'Peace Petition Phoney' SIR, — I was very pleased to read the letter of Mr. Je'rvis in the paper this morning con cerning the flood of letters you are publishing from the 'reds' and 'n-ea.r reds' in the district. They apparently rush into print with the most unreliable i statements at the slightest pro vocation. There is no answer to | their statements because they, are not facts. Still, there is the danger that people who are not otherwise informed may be in clined to think that what they say has an element ? of truth in it. ' Although- there is no indica tion at the moment that the Third World War is upon us, it would be wise for all of us who are interested in Australia's future to assume that it is, be cause tlierfer 'can 'be no doubt that Russia is building up for the big day and the local Reds are using a . softening-up pio cess for their fifth-column work when the day comes. ???Ope part of .this -s.oftening-up , process -. -is a - petition.- being, pre pared by the .phoney; P...
