The anonymous discussion on the benevolent work of the church begins in this issue. Both of the disputants are qualified men who are writing according to their convictions. Their identity will be unpublished, at least for the duration of the discussion. They are also unknown to one another. This should help to keep the debate on a high level, and enable the reader to study without the presence of personality conflict.
Our "extra" copies of this issue are deflintely limited. Many, undoubtedly, will want to subscribe now and receive this issue in order to have the complete debate. If you desire to do this, we urge you to subscribe today before our "extra" copies are exhausted.
The article "Some Facts Concerning Current Issues" which appeared in the January issue of TRUTH is currently being produced in booklet form. These booklets will be made available, free of charge to both individuals and churches who request them. However, it would be appreciated if those interested would share the expense of mailing.
Dangers of Popularity
Elsewhere in this issue Bro. James P. Needham calls our attention to the dangers involved in becoming too popular in this world. He cites the example of Pat Boone. He is not writing to make a personal "attack" on this young man. This article is made necessary by the appearance of undue publicitv which has made Pat a "personification" of all that is good in Christian living. We ask you to read it carefully and beware the dangers that are before our youth.
I would like to have all the names and addresses of friends or relatives who now live in the North who are supposed to be members of the church, but who you feel are unfaithful in attendance. I will pass these names and addresses on to the preachers in the particular communities, and this will help all of us in an effort to contact those who are not faithful. Just send names and addresses to Bryan Vinson, Jr., P. 0. Box 469, Aurora, Ill. Thanks in advance!
