i "Every Christian should he able
I to testify at once why he believes
in Jesus Christ," Dr. Henry M.
i Bullock of Nashville. Tenn.. told
I a large audience Sunday at the
opening of the fourth annual Cand
ler Camp Meeting at the Lake Jun
ali.ska Methodist Assembly.
"It is easy to prove that Christ
actually lived a little more than
? 19(10 years ago. but do you really
believe in him as your own saviour
and who alone can save the world
from the self-destruction of sin?"
Dr. Bullock asked.
Some of the reasons cited by Dr.
Bullock in his sermon. "Why 1 Be
lieve in Jesus Christ." were as fol
"Because when 1 read the record
! of what he was like, what he did,
j what lie taught . . . my mind says,
! "God is like that.'
"When I read the record of his
| forgiving love and his suffering
death on the cross, all that is within
me cries out: "Surely in Christ God
is revealing himself to me.'
"I believe in Christ because in
the more than 1900 years since he
lived, no one has taught or demon
strated a conception of God which
can compare with his. and surely
no one else has clothed such a
great conception of God with the
quivering, living flesh of reality as
Jesus has done.
"I believe in Christ because he
reveals what man may become even
though he transcends and outlives
; the creeds, customes and institu
tions of his followers. But in the ,
last analysis, the real reason 1 be
lieve in Christ is that as 1 have |
given myself to him. I have ex-1
porienced his sure presence and
leading spirit." i
Dr. Bullock, who is editor of J
Methodist churchschool publica- ?
I tions, spoke at both the lia.m. and
8 p.m. services Sunday. On Mon- i
day he will begin a daily series of | J
Bible lectures at 10 a.m. in Me-!
; inorial Chapel as a feature of the ;
!"old time" camp meeting.
