BIOLA STANDS FIRM for Christ and His Word Since the founding of the Bible Insti tute in 1908, Biola has stood firm for the spiritual and moral principles which we believe the Word of God reveals to us. We are determined to remain faithful to Jesus Christ, and to the Word of God, in doctrine and in practice until that day when ourLord will call His Church from the earth to be with Him forever. We invite YOU, as a friend of Biola College and its Graduate School Talbot Theological Seminary, to stand firm with us for the Lord in the preparation of dedicated young people who want to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in whatever field of service He might lead them. YOU can have a regular part with us through the Biola Fellowship (see the re verse side of this page). You can also share with us through a deferred gift in your Will and/or through Biota's Agreement Program. Please send coupon below for further information.
A. We all know that God has given us a capacity for emotions. In this area we partake of the image and likeness of our Lord. We can love and we can hate. Psychology tells us that the emotion of fear is embedded in us very early. It is not easy to fall in love with someone whom we do not know.

San Francisco, Calif.—“If seem ed very heartless when I heard one o f you say that there would b e no ani mals in heaven.
