The intercession of Christ in our behalf is that of presenting His divine merits in the offering of Himself to the Father as our substitute and surety; for He ascended up on high to make an atonement for our transgressions. "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world." "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins." "He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them." From these scriptures it is evident that it is not God's will that you should be distrustful, and torture your soul with the fear that God will not accept you because you are sinful and unworthy. "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." Present your case before Him, pleading the merits of the blood shed for you upon Calvary's cross. Satan will accuse you of being a great sinner, and you must admit this, but you can say: "I know I am a sinner, and that is the reason I need a Saviour. Jesus came into the world to save sinners, 'The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.' I have no merit or goodness whereby I may claim salvation, but I present before God the all-atoning blood of the spotless Lamb of God, which Jesus stands in the holy of holies, now to appear in the presence of taketh away the sin of the world.

Strangely, all of these on our knees. incidents involved the finding of lost articles. The stories were remarkably similar in that either the lost articles were found immediately after the prayer, or directions for finding them had come clearly into mind. In most cases those praying had seen the object about which they By MARY H. MOORE had been praying immediately upon opening their eyes. A knee-high viewpoint had helped them find their ob- jects. Summing up, the prayer-meeting leader drew this important lesson: "If you have lost anything, you will find it on your knees. We have heard God's children tell tonight of God's response to their daily physical needs, but what they have said is particularly true of spiritual things. Whatever you have lost 'in life's throng and press'—sweetness of temper, peace of mind, victory over temptation, nearness to God, a vision of the right way—it can be found again if you adopt the knee-high viewpoint." It seems that there has to be a kneeling of the heart and will before there can be an effective kneeling of the knees. Our loving Father wants to draw us into that receptive mood of faith, love, and submission before He lets our eyes light on the object of our request. Our prayer-meeting leader set me thinking. How appropriate her lesson! Later we learned why she had been seated during her presentation. She was suffering such pain as a result of adhesions from surgery that standing was difficult. Al- though it had been several years since her surgery, she was still having trouble. Often she had prayed for heal- ing, but God's answer apparently had been an allowing of her weakness to persist so that she might be kept dependent on Him for physical strength and be constantly reminded of her need for spiritual strength. In praying for help to conduct our prayer meeting, she had asked, not for relief from pain, but for grace to endure. As we had knelt in prayer during the meeting, her pain had been relieved. Fittingly, that night as she had assumed a knee-high viewpoint, being drawn into a receptive mood of trust and confidence in God, she had received more than she asked for. Taking time to touch Christ amid the throng and press of life, she had been made "whole again." ❑

The Seventh-day Adventists and the members of a few other religious organizations believe that the second Union ruling coming of Christ is imminent and, because they desire to hold themselves ready for this event, they avoid entan- glement in what they regard as worldly associations, provides including labor unions. For this reason they are opposed to the so-called union shop or other forms of union security clauses in collective bargaining contracts which for Adventists require payment of dues to a certified union as a condi- tion of continued employment. A Catholic bishop urges AFL-CIO This matter recently came before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case involving David Anderson, a Seventh- affiliates to implement the union day Adventist from southern California. The Supreme policy that provides a means of Court refused to overturn a lower court ruling that the accommodating themselves to genuine Civil Rights Act of 1964 was violated by the firing of Mr. Anderson who had refused, because of his religious individual religious scruples. beliefs, to join or support his local union while accepting its services (the record shows that he was reinstated twice through the efforts of the union when he was fired by the company for refusing to work on Saturday, the Adventist By MSGR.

10 (906) ADVENTIST REVIEW, AUGUST 30, 1979 Seventh-day Adventists and others who object to union membership on religious grounds. AFL-CIO President George Meany was in complete sympathy with the stated purpose of this proposed amendment, but, in a letter to the House Labor Committee, he questioned the advis- ability of going the legislative route. He pointed out that "there is considerable variance in the nature and extent of religious objection to participation in unions." Some wish to participate in union meetings and other union objectives, and object only to participation in picket line activity. Others desire a lesser degree of participation. "I am confident," Mr. Meany assured the Committee, "that unions and employers can work this matter out satisfactorily with the particular religious groups in- volved." Shortly thereafter, the Executive Council of the AFL- CIO, at the urging of President Meany, adopted an official policy statement which reads in part as follows: "We strongly urge all national and international unions affiliated with the AFL-CIO, that have not already done so, to: '1. Immediately adopt procedures for respecting sincere religious convictions as to union membership or activities; and 2. Undertake to insure that this policy is fully and sympathetically implemented by all local unions.' " It seems to me that all AFL-CIO affiliates would be well advised to implement this policy statement as soon as possible. They should have done so years ago, on their own initiative, but now that the Supreme Court has declined to reverse the circuit court's decision in the Anderson case, they have no choice in the matter. That is to say, if they fail to implement the Federation's policy recommendations, they will have only themselves to It is the policy of the AFL-CIO that unions should accommodate them- blame if they are compelled to do so by court action. selves to the genuine religious beliefs of Adventists and others.
