King's Business - 1969-12


Missions: Preparation, involvement, and harvest

Will the college you choose keep its promise?

Promises can be dangerous, especially in our fast-moving society. Political leaders make statements that sometimes are misleading. Business executives do not always carry through. Even church leaders get trapped in this dilemma. You're probably very skeptical about the whole idea of promises, especially when considering a college education. Magazine ads become very competitive in listing the qualities and plus factors of their institutions. But what promises can a college actually fulfill? Doesn't it really depend on you? What do you want in college? How much do you want to succeed? What is your determination? Biola College can make many promises. For example: large campus in Southern California; regional and professional accreditation; 21 academic majors; tremendous opportunities in music, athletics, Christian outreach; excellent percentage of faculty with earned doctorates, etc. But the real issue lies with you. Your involvement claims the promises. It will cost you something financially. Academic standards and Christian guidelines are key requirements. But isn't that what you want in college? Write for more details.

Beginning with this issue, THE KING’S BU S INE S S Magazine has expanded the emphasis on Christian reading. The books will be divided into three categories: Christian Edu­ cation, Family, Pastor. It is the hope and prayer o f the editors that many Christians will be challenged with the opportunity of purchasing and using the many fine volumes which are available. Specific questions may be di­ rected to Managing Editor, c /o THE KING’S BUSINESS, 13800 Biola Avenue, La Mirada, Cali­ fornia 90638. Christian Education This delightful little book on Christian Missions is extremely readable and challenging as it is a book of sermons given by one who has the ability to communi­ cate in an interesting maimer and the life experience to back-up his thesis. Those who are already in­ terested in m i s s i on s will be thrilled as they are caught up in the excitement o f being involved in the biggest business in the world. Those that have little in­ terest in missions will have to face honestly the Biblical priority given to the evangelization of the world. The personal examples and illustrations are tied in with an honest evaluation and look at mis­ sions today, and the reviewer rec­ ommends, very highly, this book to all Christians. — 126 pages; cloth binding; William B.

Although different in scope and thrust, these two recent works from the pens o f Catholic laymen both provide interesting insights into the Roman Church o f Vati­ can II. Scharper’s work which, in­ terestingly, was published by the Southern Baptis t B roadman Press, takes the reader through the present house o f Rome from the unused parlor o f “ points of view the Church once held but which it has either changed or is in the process o f ch a n g in g ” through the dining room o f wor­ ship, the quarters of the bishops, religious orders and the Pope. In­ tended to expose the wary Prot­ estant to the modern Catholic, it does just that in a most enjoyable, readable manner. The mood changes somewhat in Duquesne’s A Church Without Priests? from the confident, basic­ ally happy guide who recognizes certain problems but sees the trends moving in a satisfactory direction to a problem becoming o f increasing c on c e rn to the Church — departures from the priesthood. The reasons for the crises, according to Duquesne, stem all the way from the authori­ tarian, monarchical aristocractic structure to celibacy and the loss o f self-identity in the ministry. The suggested road out of the present dilemma o f the Church lies basically in the de-clericaliza- tion o f the ministry. These books not only provide the reader with an up-to-date glimpse of the Catholic Church, but also they broach many areas o f concern among Protestants as well, particularly those tending toward denominational hierarchi­ cal structures.

R ecent reports from Mexico sent to us by Jerry Larson, s u m m e r m i s s i o n a r y o f FARMS, reveal that the average per-capita income o f the nationals surveyed is $45.00 a year. This and other similar surveys point up some of the problems we are facing in underdeveloped coun­ tries. For one thing, the people are extremely poor and usually malnourished. Then too, all the families interviewed are follow­ ing agricultural pursuits, which is true of seventy-five percent of inhab i tan t s of underdeveloped countries. Obviously these people are trying to feed themselves, yet it is very difficult for them to do so because they lack the means of food production, such as hybrid seeds, fertilizers, improved live­ stock (especially well-bred poul­ try), practical bu i ld in g s and equipment. FARMS is an interdenomina­ tional, non-profit service in agri­ culture which works with Chris­ tian missions on the international field to provide the means o f food production and on-the-job train­ ing for family projects. It ad­ dresses itself to the needs o f all hungry people and expresses the compassion o f Christ by starting its ministry with needy believers. The best way to help everybody in general is to help somebody in particular. If we are going to con­ vince hungry mankind that God, as revealed in Christ, is the an­ swer to all their needs then it must be evident to them that He is the answer to the needs o f those who trust Him. Because of an almost universal interest in chickens and the need for eggs, the core project of FARMS is laying hens. The egg is nature’s most perfect protein food.

Yet, his de­ pendence on God is as essential today as yesterday. And God's promise to men isasvalid now as then.

*a message from the editor "

HIGH HEMLINEÍ R ecently , a report has been released which was conducted by an organization known as Hollywood Social Studies. Officials of 128 representative cities in the United States were sent a ques­ tionnaire. One reply per city was sought from the police chief, vice squad commander, or juvenile division commander—men and wom­ en in a position to know what they were talking about. All 56 of the nation’s largest cities, a quarter o f a million and up, were sur­ veyed; 72 others, ranging down to 10,000 population, were also included in this survey. Officials in over half of the largest cities and almost half of those in the smaller cities replied. On the central question, the largest cities voted in a ratio of 31:1 that there is a probable connection between mini skirts and the rise o f sex crimes. A girl is more likely to be a victim o f a sex crime, including statutory rape, if she wears a mini skirt. Replies also were 56:2 (56 yes, 2 no) that the combination of pornography and revealing clothing is more dangerous than either alone. It was unanimously believed that provocative clothing, such as mini skirts, could and probably did encourage some emotionally immature men toward sex crime. It was reported 43:8 that the general decline of morals among youth had as a contributing cause the short skirt fad. The report o f police officials was 32:1 to the effect that the ever shorter dresses on young girls should be considered a possible cause of increased cases o f molestation. Some of the cities reporting said that they were not in a position to report because they did not have statistics available on this particular point. All reported that the sex crime rise began in 1964. Prior to 1964, skirts invariably cov­ ered the knees when girls were either standing or seated, but at that time the skirts began to slide above the knees when a girl sat down. Later that year designers of Paris and London displayed fashions inches above the knee and the “mini skirt” was born. One juvenile bureau commander of an Eastern city of over 350,000 reported that “the unavoidable sight of short skirts causes an inner problem to all normal boys.” The police chief o f another large city thought most boys had such a problem from the very nature of human beings. Mini skirts were brought into fashion by a designer named Mary Quant of London, England, who is recognized as “ the mother of the mini skirt” . She was quoted in a 1967 news article, in which she stated, “Mini clothes are symbolic of those girls (like herself) who didn’t want to wait until dark to ‘seduce a man into bed’.” The mini clothes fad was invented and created by one who delib­ erately set about seducing young men and older men as well. From a city of approximately % of a million people, the com­ mander of the juvenile department wrote: “ I personally feel we are in great trouble; immorality has taken over and if you attempt to do anything about it, they say you are old-fashioned.” Many others expressed the same concern over the growing problem. The majority o f those replying thought that the provocative styles even added to race tensions. One police chief wrote, “ very definitely” .

A Jewish boy accepted a tract, "Isaiah's Por­ trait of Messiah" and immediately asked, "Can you tell . me more about this?" There on a street corner in Chicogo a 12 year old boy listened intently to the skillful presentation of the Scriptures and ac­ cepted Jesus Christ as his Messiah and Sav­ iour. A middle-aged Jew­ ess, after hearing the gospel for several years at Miami Beach called and said, "I am terribly distressed. Please come over. I must find the Lord today."

HIGH CRIME The majority also thought that the increased tension from seeing the revealing styles tended to increase other problems as well, such as vandalism, reckless driving, drug use, drunkenness, and other sins of our sick society. These lawmen very clearly state that the short skirt fad is more than a fashion. In their professional opin­ ion, they agree that it is, instead, a menace! The conclusions brought out in the survey conducted by the Hollywood Social Studies, are stated by the organization, “Mini- skirted girls are more likely to be crime victims; short skirts may encourage some emotionally immature young men to commit sex crimes; these subjective effects of wearing daring clothing may involve a girl in immoral behavior; and the ever shorter dresses of young girls is a probable cause of increased molestation. Finally, many have agreed that the decline of teenage morals has been speeded by this fad in what one juvenile commander sadly called, ‘our foolishly permissive society’.” As far as this editor knows, this was the first comprehensive study o f the problems of the mini skirt that has been conducted on a nationwide basis. If this had been conducted by some funda­ mentalist group, it would have been condemned as a biased, rigged report put out by a group of killjoys. But such a charge cannot be laid at the door o f the Hollywood Social Studies Group. The con­ clusions certainly cannot be fairly refuted. The experiment in mini skirts has been carried on for a sufficient length o f time in order to see some of these disastrous results. Of course, the National Council of Churches and its member denominations would never think of carrying on any sort of cru­ sade to correct this trend. In all too many instances Bible-believing Christians know that this trend is morally wrong from the author­ ity of the Word of God but they are howled or hooted down by those who have an utterly perverted sense of what is morally right and what is morally wrong. It is extremely difficult for a good, morally-clean girl to face the ridicule of her student colleagues if she wears a modest length dress. Such pressures in high school are more than most girls can withstand. One of the saddest features o f the problem is that often many fine Christian mothers are per­ fectly willing to encourage their daughters to wear these mini­ skirt type of dress in the hope that they will make their daughters more popular. The tragedy is that when these girls wear these short dresses and are molested or tempted beyond their ability to withstand, they find themselves trapped in the meshes o f immoral­ ity. Then their indulgent parents are shocked, chagrined, and feel that they have been disgraced. Pastors report that this is one of the greatest problems that they have to deal with in their present- day activities. It is a most regrettable situation indeed but such parents have no one to blame but themsleves. Our young people need more earnest prayer offered in their behalf than at any time in any previous generation. God grant that we might be found faithful in this particular responsibility that we have! kb

those who soon returned home un­ able to cope with “ the frustration and discouragement, disappoint­ ment in evangelism, failure to hurdle the language and cultural barriers, incompatibility with fel­ low missionaries and nationals and a general, underlying lack of spiritual depth and maturity.” Dr. Smith believed that through a practical, firsthand experience in the foreign mission field, young people who wanted to serve their Lord would be far better equipped to fight, not only the physical hardships, but also “ the more subtle and far more dangerous at­ tacks of the enemy.” With this purpose, P r a c t i c a l Missionary Training was founded and has offered this effective summer pro­ gram each year. Today PMT offers this experi­ ence to c o l l e g e sophomore-age young people who are spiritually mature and who are sincerely seeking the Lord’s guidance both daily and concerning their life’s work. PMT states that trainees must be “missionary volunteers, i.e., willing to serve the Lord wherever He might lead, at home or abroad, ready to trust God for every need.” During the course of the summer, the trainees write a prayer letter to those at home who have financially or prayer­ fully supported them and to those interested in the work o f PMT. Many times they have the oppor­ tunity to share their experiences in their home church also. This is just one phase of the practical training in missionary work. Each summer a group of train­ ees travel to a foreign country. In recent years they have gone to Mexico and Central America, where they visited missionaries and were involved at least par­ tially in the routine of daily mis­ sionary life and work. Led by Rev. Ken Bemis, PMT Director, and Rev. Ken Royer, the group first travels to Mexico City where they study during a two-week orientation program at Wycliffe headquarters. Here they are giv­ en training and background in various areas ranging from Mexi­

can history and Spanish to good manners and homiletics; from the work before language trans­ lation can begin to medical work and personality tes ts . These weeks beg in the concentrated summer study of God’s Word and what He has to say to each in­ dividual concerning this experi­ ence. Many trainees feel that one of the greatest values o f the summer is the personality test given dur­ ing the first week. The young peo­ ple have an opportunity during this time to examine themselves objectively. Throughout the sum­ mer, as each individual reacts to various typical missionary situa­ tions, he is able to see his response from this perspective. Before ever reaching the field as a full-fledged missionary, trainees can under­ stand and develop their personali­ ties, allowing the Holy Spirit to develop their characters. After Mexico City, the group travels on throughout Cen tra l American countries : Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Nica­ ragua. Trainees visit nearly every type of missionary work — Bible institutes f o r the na t iona l s , schools for missionary children, Christian camps, b o a r d in g schools, and village churches. The group has many opportunities to perform various duties o f mis­ sionary life from preaching, sing­ ing, giving testimonies and object lessons to cooking meals, working on church and home construction, picking fruit and typing. During a two-week visit to Wycliffe’s Jungle Camp, the trainees live in huts and are put to work with the routine duties o f the camp — attending linguistic classes, pre­ paring three meals a day for 70 people (which included butcher­ ing the cow and canning it for later consumption), swimming, canoeing, heating and sterilizing water, and hiking 24 miles over­ night in the rain. While attend­ ing Clinic Classes, the group gave shots to each other and learned about diseases o f the jungle. According to Rev. Ken Bemis,

preparing missionaries

for the TASK

by Peggy Sanders

O n J une 20, 1969 thirty-five anxious, earnest young people converged on El Paso, Texas, and prepared for a two-month journey through Mexico and Cen­ tral America. They wou ld be trained in methods for future work, analyze and develop their personalities, train themselves to combat their opposition, and sub­ merge themselves in the beliefs which dominate and guide their lives. The future profession o f these youths, however, is missionary work at home or in a foreign country, and the personality study during the summer is to help them r e a l i z e each individual’s own strong and weak points as they work closely with others daily. The enemy they are pre­ paring to fight is Satan who works through emotional exhaus­ tion and discouragement to de­ feat Christ’s missionaries. These young people immerse themselves in Scripture in order to know better the reasons for what they believe and to overcome those things which would hinder their Holy Spirit-directed lives. The story o f this group actual­ ly began in 1949 when Dr. Oran H. Smith, then serving as assis­ tant pastor of Chicago’s Moody Church, became concerned about the rate of missionary failures—



highly respected and trusted the missionaries as they completely co-operated with each other. Peo­ ple were constantly coming into the missionaries’ homes and it was evident that the nationals and missionaries had totally ac­ cepted one another and that there was real love between them all.” Karen felt that “ This experience has strengthened my own Chris­ tian life and I feel closer to know­ ing the Lord’s will day by day.” Not only has she learned about life in a foreign country, but also about living a closer, more Christ- like life at home. PMT recently merged with the Central American Mission which will facilitate internal operations — CAM handling the mailing and financial records for PMT; PMT interviewing CAM candidates and representing that organization on the west coast. However, PMT will continue to offer Youth Mis­ sionary Camps for spiritually ma­ ture teenagers during Easter and Christmas va ca t ion s , monthly conferences and free counseling and information service for mis­ sionary-inclined youth. The sum­ mer program, above all, will con­ tinue to be its main thrust, as PMT works to provide a practi­ cal, Spirit-filled missionary expe­ rience for young people dedicated to serving Christ at home or abroad. k b Miss Peggy Sanders is a sopho­ more at Biola College, La Mirada, California.

in order to see missionary work from a closer vantage point, “ the trainees are then scattered in­ dividually and in small groups among various missionaries for a closer, more concentrated view of missionary home life and specific institutionally and rural tribal ministries. In spite of careful planning, much of what is en­ countered comes naturally and unexpectedly, p re sen t ing many t y p i c a l missionary situations.” This can mean anything from changing a flat tire or spending a night outside in the mud to much more significant unexpect­ ed circumstances. Part o f this summer’s group arrived in Hon­ duras and found th em se lves caught in that country’s war with El Salvador, a neighboring coun­ try. The war provided many expe­ riences for these young people, including living under black-out conditions and evacuating fami­ lies in strategic areas. As far as these young people were concerned, the Lord had many personal problems for each one through the summer. Joe Witt of Orange, Calif., felt real fear for the first time in Honduras yet he says, “ I was able to see the missionaries’ reaction to all this — something I never would have seen except in this situation.” Joe came back from PMT eager to return to a foreign country. He found that “ Christian work in a foreign country isn’t that differ­ ent from Christian work here. It involves church planting, evan­ gelism, leading people to Christ and then helping than to grow. Yet the different language, cul­ ture and environment, the lack of abundant Christian w i tn e s s e s such as we have in the U.S., and the sacrifices — socially and fi­ nancially — made by national Christians, make work in the for­ eign country the most exciting work in the world.” Impressed by the relationship between the missionaries and the government during the Honduran war, Karen McBride from Ari­ zona saw that “the government DECEMBER, 1969

D oes G od ever attend beauty contests ? He did! And as a result, Hadassah was chosen to be the queen of a great empire that stretched from India to Ethiopia. Does God ever become involved in assassination plots ? He was, and the king of that same great em­ pire was saved from a premature death. A whis­ pered conversation between Bigthan and Teresh was “ accidentally” overheard. The king’s life was spared and the two would-be assassins were strung up. Does God ever get mixed up in politics ? He did, at a banquet table with a king, a queen, and a prime minister. Dramatic results followed. You who are knowledgable about the Book know that I have taken these three incidents from Esther. Although the name of God is not mentioned in Esther, His hand is clearly seen, reaching deep into the machinery o f human affairs and directing the course of history. Though God is neither a capitalist nor a Com­ munist, a Democrat nor a Republican, He is deliber­ ately involved in the movements o f nations. Those who look at the stage of history and fail to see God standing in the wings, miss the most meaningful aspect o f it all. The Bible clearly presents God as the Sovereign of sovereigns. He rules in the kingdom o f men. The nations of the world are as the small dust in the bal­ ance. In His sight, the heart o f the king is in His hands and He tumeth it whithersoever He wills. He raises up one and sets down another. The Caesars and the Napoleons, the Hitlers and the Stalins, rise and fall like the great waves o f the ocean unto whom God has said, “ So far and no farther.” The Old Testament scene is one in which Israel is at the center of the stage. She is, at times, “ di­ vinely” victorious over the nations that surround her. At other times she is “ divinely” defeated, and scattered abroad. In all of this the sovereign arm of the Lord o f Hosts is plainly evident. The repeated warnings of God’s prophets are finally fulfilled in

the bloody destruction of Jerusalenrand the temple o f the Lord. In spite o f all God’s promises and the pleading o f His prophets; in spite of His interven­ tions and revelations, Israel failed to accomplish the commission the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had given her. The New Testament pictures for us a “ holy nation” being gathered out from among the Gen­ tiles. That nation is referred to as “ the church.” As with Israel, so with the church, God has given a task to be performed and directives to be obeyed. This is commonly referred to as “ The Great Com­ mission.” And, indeed, it is great—great in its pur­ pose, great in its power, and great in its propor­ tions. As God did everything possible to enable His people in the Old Testament to fulfill their respon­ sibility, we have every right to expect Him to do the same for the church. In fact, He has promised to empower the church to accomplish the task He has assigned her. It appears to me that there have been increas­ ing evidences in the last 25 years of the sovereign hand of God opening and closing doors for His church. On some occasions, that Almighty Hand i has seemed gently to grasp the knob and open the door silently and slowly. On other occasions, the door has been violently torn from its hinges. And in a few cases, the door has been closed. Let me illustrate: It was not until the close of World War II that the church in America began to look seriously at Europe as a mission field. In the past two decades, a number of fine mission organizations have begun and are carrying on fruitful ministries on the European continent. Child evangelism and youth ministries are prospering in several of the coun- tries. Bible training schools have been opened and churches are being planted. Door-to-door book- sales and correspondence courses are having an in­ creasing outreach. Even the doors of those Euro­ pean countries for which missions held little hope
