âââââââ let âââ CORRESPONDENCE. I SUNDAY FOOD PRODUCTION. I To the Editor. I Sir,âMuch discussion has arisen over Land Cultivation on the Sab- bath," and with profound regret I hear that some of our religious leaders are condemning it; and I beg a little space in your esteemed paper to ex- press myself on the subject. Our soldiers in France and other countries are fighting hard, are suffer- ing, are dying, in order to aid the land of an unscrupulous foe. Day and night, week in, week out, Sabbath after Sabbath, our soldiers stand at their posts. They know no day of rest. What would happen if, on the next Sabbath, our mighty Army took a day's rest ? The result is ebvious to persons of average intelligence. Our soldiers stand to their posts on the Sabbath, our gunners stand to their guns, our Navy keeps its silent and effective watch, because they be- lieve the cause to be just and righteous. But what is being done at home to support them ? Some religious lead- ers say it is sinful to utilise the Sab- bath for food production although the production assists our gallant troops. They say in solemn tones that Sabbath Days are too holy to spend in cultivating the land. Let us ask ourselves the question: "What would Jeans do ?" or What did Jesus do ?" Looking through the New Testament we find that our Saviour plucked corn on the Sabbath because his disciples were hungry. He also healed a man with a withered hand on the same day; In these days of war, food is scarce, and the ground needs attention. Christ plucked corn, he healed the withered hand; let us not forget that> the land we love is withered, and needs oultivatidg- Would Christ see a nation starve, or would He work on the Sabbath to save it ? He would not see His dis- oiples hungry. Furthermore, if those who condemn Land Cultivation on the Sabbath had to spend at least eight hours a day for six days in a dark, hot coal mine, working hard every minute, I am sare they would alter their tone. We look to our religious leaders for guidance and advice, but some of them have, in this matter, misguided us. Here in France many soldiers have expressed their contempt for such unorthodox teaching, which they as Christians, believe to be quite con- trary to the teaching of the New Testament: Wishing your valuable paper every success.âYours sincerely, DAVID J.
