THE city of New Orleans in the summer of 1968 was the scene of an evangelistic campaign conducted for twelve weeks in the center of the city. Night after night I opened the meetings by quoting Revelation 14:6, 7, which fact accounts for the title of this article, "Three Angels Over New Orleans." At the conclusion of this meeting 229 people were baptized, with an additional thirty reclaimed to the faith. . .
AMONG Adventist teachers and preachers eager discussion is going on at the present time on the nature of inspiration. This makes the need for a careful and continuing study of this topic most important. . .
ELIHU, the son of a Buzite, one of Job's friends, was an eloquent debater. His material fills several chapters in the book of Job. Listen to one of his confessions that zeros in on the subject under discussion. . .
OUR decision series runs for twenty-three consecutive nights followed by five nights of baptismal classes. Before the meetings start we plan a baptism for the last Sabbath morning of the series and an other baptism one week later. In ten years of evangelism—sometimes in very small places where we had no church—God has always been true to His promise: "Let ministers and lay members go forth into the ripening fields. They will find their harvest wherever they proclaim the for gotten truths of the Bible.". . .
IN A REPORT from the National Science Foundation distributed to science teachers (NSF 63-15, May, 1963, pp. 1, 2) it was stated, "More scientific and technological discoveries have been made in the past fifteen years than in all previous recorded time." The truly phenomenal practical triumphs of science during this brief period, indeed, during the past century, have earned much well-deserved public respect for science. . .
AN OLD preacher once said, "If man has a soul, and he has; and if that soul can be won or lost for eternity, and it can; then the most important thing in the world is to bring a man to Jesus Christ.". . .
SPACE probes are becoming common place. The now-familiar countdown procedure has been viewed on television by millions. The man in the street is growing more conversant with such concepts as lunar excursion module (LEM) and manned orbiting laboratory (MOL). . .
IT IS an accepted fact that the Holy Scriptures belong to the whole of the human family. But does each tribe, nation, and continent cherish a sense of belonging to the Word of God? Africans came in direct contact with the Bible in the days of colonization, when Western powers imported the Sacred Book to their lands as a stabilizing factor. It should not therefore surprise any Westerner to meet honest persons in this vast continent who, in their subconscious, regard the Bible as the Book of the white man. . .
THERE are those who send up the mournful cry that the time for working the great cities is long past, that these great metropolises, "almost wholly given over to idolatry," have sinned away their day of grace and so hardened their hearts against the voice of God that there is little use for us to put forth great efforts for them. . .
