Playing Time



In this recording Dell introduces the scripture of John 8:29-32 amid choir singing. A man then offers a prayer for God to watch over the congregation. Dell then delivers his message of seeking the truth. He discussed Christian education and places of higher learning, and how that could be an opportunity for missionary work. He mentions crime and states that only 2 people in his congregation have went to prison in over 42 years. He states that truth may not always be an individual’s interpretation, using the example of a Jehovah’s Witness that visited him and tried to give him their bible. He further makes various comparisons of different religions coming to their own form of truth and that one must seek guidance from God. Program ends with prayer and singing.
