Program 8096; 1979
"DO YOU EVER STOP TO THINK WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE WHAT THEY BELIEVE? DIFFERENT RELIGIONS BELIEVE WHATEVER THEIR RELIGION IS. PRACTICALLY ALL THE PEOPLE IN THAILAND BELIEVE IN BUDDHISM. WHY DO THEY ALL BELIEVE IN BUDDHISM? WHY IS IT NEARLY ALL ARABS BELIEVE IN THE MOSLEM RELIGION? WHY IS IT THAT NEARLY EVERYBODY IN FRANCE IN CATHOLIC? AND HOW DID YOU COME TO BELIEVE THE THINGS YOU BELIEVE?"Program 8196; April 1979
"I WOULD LIKE YOU TO CONSIDER HOW ANYONE COULD KNOW THESE TRUTHS: THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO AND WHAT IS GOD, WHAT AND WHY IS MANKIND, WHY WERE WE EVER PUT ON THE EARTH, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE, WHAT IS A MAN, WHAT WAS THE GOSPEL, WHAT IS SALVATION, ALL OF THESE THINGS?"Program 8199; April 1979
"WE NEED TO BE CONSCIOUS OF THE BABYLON OF RELIGIOUS CONFUSION THAT EXISTS IN THE WORLD TODAY. BESIDES MORE THAN 250 SECTS AND DENOMINATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION, TODAY IN THE WORLD WE HAVE JUDAISM, BUDDHISM, CONFUCIANISM, ISLAM, SHINTOISM, TAOISM, AGNOSTICISM, ATHEISM, AND EVOLUTION, EVEN THE LATTER TWO ARE RELIGIONS AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS."Program 8208; March 1979
"HOW DOES GOD PUT THE DOCTRINES, THE TEACHINGS, THAT WE ARE TO BELIEVE AND WE'RE TO PREACH, INTO THE CHURCH? HE NATURALLY DOES IT THROUGH JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH. SO, HERE IS A BASIC TEACHING OF THE DOCTRINE IN I CORINTHIANS 1:20, WHERE THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID TO THE CHURCH AT CORINTH, "NOW, I BESEECH YOU BRETHREN IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST THAT YOU ALL SPEAK THE SAME THING." HE DOESN'T WANT JOHN SPEAKING ONE THING AND HENRY SOMETHING ELSE AND PAUL SOMETHING ELSE, AND THEN SOMEBODY ELSE SOMETHING ELSE. WE ARE COMMANDED TO ALL SPEAK THE SAME THING."Program 8379; 1979
"IF WE TRY TO VIEW THE CONDITIONS IN THE WORLD FROM THE POINT IN TIME WE LIVE TODAY, IT'S A GOOD DEAL LIKE TUNING IN A MOVIE ON YOUR TELEVISION SET WHEN IT IS ABOUT THREE-FOURTHS OF THE WAY ALONG. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GONE ON BEFORE. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LED UP TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOW, AND YOU'LL BE BORED BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU. YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE AND WHAT LED UP TO IT."Program 8380; October 1979
"TODAY THE NUMBER ONE QUESTION IN THE WORLD IS THE QUESTION OF HUMAN SURVIVAL! SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY HAVE DEVELOPED THE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION THAT CAN ERASE ALL HUMAN LIFE FROM OFF THIS EARTH, AND IF GOD DOESN'T INTERVENE, IT WOULD BE DONE. BUT GOD WILL INTERVENE BEFORE THAT HAPPENS, AND IT WON'T BE DONE, NOW THAT'S THE PHYSICAL PROGRESS."
