roWMENTS ON HERE AND HEREAFTER
Recently it was the writer's,
privilege to conduct a very re
markable eight -day evangelistic
campaign in the Churchill Taber
iwcic >n the city of Buff&tG. New
York. Twenty-five years ago Billy
Sunday, under the sponsorship of
practically all the churches of the
city of Buffalo, held there a great
six weeks' tabernacle meeting.
There were many conversions in
the Sunday revival. One of the
conversions was a young business
man named Clinton Churchill.
Mr. Churchill probably had as
bright a business future as any
young man of his age on the
American continent. He turned
from this business career to be
come a preacher of the Gospel,
which in his own life had proved
to be the power of God unto sal
vation. Mr. Churchill is still a
pood business man. His minis
| terial work is carried on in a
j business-like way. After being
! converted. Churchill built the
first radio station in the city of
Buffalo, and at one time he con
trolled four radio stations. He
now broadcasts the Gospel every
week over a 50.000 watt station.
He has a great tabernacle which
is a center of testimony to which
people come to hear the Gospel
and from which the message of
the Gospel goes out over the air
to many thousands of people liv
ing in a number of states.
While preaching in the Church
ill Tabernacle there came to the
mind of the writer the thought
that practically every great city
in America has in it some one
outstanding man who is preach
ing the Gospel to great crowds ?
crowds which assemble Sunday
alter Sunday. Most of these min
isters preach this same Gospel to
thousands of people who listen In
over the radio. Sometimes Christ
ian leaders become discouraged
because there are so many empty
churches, but these Christian
leaders should remember that
more people are hearing the Gos
pcl today than ever heard it in
the history of the world. When
Billy Sunday had his campaign
in Buffalo he probably preached
to ten thousand people dally. Mr.
Churchill, one of the converts of
Mr. Sunday's Buffalo meeting. Is
preaching to at least a quarter of
a million people every Sunday.
In the old days when the writer
would address an audience of five
thousand people in a big taber
nacle somewhere, the paper next
day would have a headline across
the top of the first page to the
offort fho t Rnh
an audience of five thousand peo
ple yesterday. Now it Is ? the
privilege of the writer, while still
speaking to rather large audi
ences in many parts of America,
to broadcast the Gospel in person
and by electrical transcription
over approximately one hundred
fifty radio stations in the United
States. Canada. Alaska. China,
and South America. In the old
days we preached to from five to
ten thousand people a day. Now
we preach to millions of people
every week. The Gospel is the
power of God unto salvation tc
every one that believeth. It does
n't say it is the power of God if
ir is preached in church on Sun
day morning or in a tabernacle in
a big evangelistic campaign.
The Gospel, which we have had
the Joy 01 preaching oyer ^
radio. has produced some of ^
most remarkable conversions wt
have ever bad under our

suggest that Christian people
everywhere pray especially tor

and all the rest of our crowd who
are giving the Gospel over the
