Q Text: "At a time when you shou- ld be teaching others, you need teachers yourselves to repeat to you the ABC of God's revelat- ion to men! For anyone who continues to live on "milk" is obviously immature -- he sim- ply has not grown up." (Heb- recs 5:42-13, J.B. Phillips tran- sla tion ) At a recent school-class re- union someone figured that the eight of the class was 3 V2 tins greater than when they grad- uated! We might ask what else did they accumulate, beside fatty tissue? Are we also grow- ing intellectually, spiritually, emotionally? Are the processes of maturation alive in us? For you see, ell adults are not "a- dult." The1:e are persons who are grown up on the outside but who are ehildreri on the inside. They may be 6' tall, but mere babies emotionally and lrittmlly. So we come to rea- lize that immaturity is as much a sin as some forms of immor- ality. For "sin" is basically fl failure to fulfill the God-ord- ained purpose for life. One out- tanding missionary, Dr. E. Stanley Jones, says that the pr651em of both East and West is the great for maturity. "We are very immature people at- ?4roping to handle very mature mblems. Our problems are mltrtmrdg :our capacity to hand- le them." For instance, marriage coun- selors agree that lack of adult maturity is the case of most marital difficulties. Marriage is or adults-- not for spoiled child- FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Rev.

Or again, here is a father who goes into a temper tantrum to have his way; or a sulking mother. others dominate and become a- gressive to cover up feelings o inferiority. Still others hang on to leftover prejudices, childish fears, and jealousies. Worst of all, there are those caught on a low level of living, who have ceased to grow up, living in a daily grind instead of daily growth. This matter of immaturity is he concern of the Epistle to the Hebrews, and in paraphase he says, Won't you ever grow up-" We all like to think we have grown up; its always the other person who is immature. Rath- er, let us confess that none of us have "arrived" - none of us have reached that fullness of mature manhood that is found in Jesus Christ. Christain ma- turity is not a goal that we ever reach: we're always in a pro- cess of becoming which Js a continuing experience in the life of any serious Christain. The Hebrew writer is face to face with he problem of the Christain who refuses to grow up: The Christain who refuses to row up in fith and know- ledge is quickly out-of-date, answering old questions, and avoiding new ones, such as pea- ce and war, race prejudice, the new sex morality, etc. There are people who have never grown up in behavior. Too many a- dults are like children who sulk, throw temper-fits, and refuse to 'play' if things danX .go his own way! A case of 'arrested .development' is ahvays a path- etic thing; and the world, and our churches, are full of people whose religious development has been arrested.

Yes, they even refuse to attend church school classes, because they recognize no need for further growth, and stopped learning, growing and maturing years ago. It is true that Jesus said that the greatest thing in the world is the child-like spirit; but there is a world of lifference between the child-like and the children spirit. Peter Pan, the boy would not grow up, makes a chaining play on the stage; but Peter Pan, the man and woman and teen- ager who will not grow up, makes for a tragedy in real life. Therefore, is our faith the re- ligion of childhood, or the faith of maturity? Let us be careful thai we are not still behaving like children when we should be behaving like Christian men and women full grown! May our standard of Christain maturity be nothing less than the mea- sure of the stature of the full- ness of Christ." CtlUR(q[/ OF THE BRETHREN Three Miles West of Cushhyg K. O.
