An inexperienced basketball player will sometime make a basket from thirty feet out. So it is with all of us when we gain INSIGHT in our lives.

"Because," l replied, "Christ, the Founder of Christianity, was a young Man." It was not an old worn out man who was wea- ry with life who died for our sins The supreme achievement in human history was wrought by One who never reached middle age. At an age when people are begin- ning to do their great work, He closed His career with the words, "It is finished." Just before He completed His mission, it was said of Him in Psalm 110:3, "Thou hast the dew of Thy youth." It was to men in the dew of youth that our Lord Jesus said, "Follow Me!" And it was with these young men that He triumphed. They revolutionized life, put a new heart in man and a new face on society, and founded the kingdom of God. They were not high born but heaven born. They did not have possessions, but they had the priceless re- sources of youth; and they yielded all of self for all of time to Christ. Will you?

Hoskins urged delegates tolook to the Bible for guidance dur- ing his feature talk, "Decide Now for Divine Rulership." "Nationalism has been the scourge of our time," Hoskins declared. "Mankind has cho- sen to substitute worship of the state for worship of God, and it has resulted in blood- shed and misery." Hoskins urged Christians to avoid getting the "mark of the beast." He explained this is a symbol the Bible uses to in- dicate one is a supporter of worldly governments in opposi- tion to God. "One gets this mark by lend- ing a hand of cooperation to political organizations, or act- ively taking part in its poli- tical controversies, campaigns, elections and nationalistic plans," he said.
