The home today is most fearfully attacked by satanic devices, for since the home is the source of life, to contaminate it is to pollute the stream of life that flows from the home into society.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 8.  

 

The home is the chief school of human virtues.    A Christian home is known by the fact that the Word of God is there, the fear of God is there, and parental authority is there.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 18.  

 

It is mainly in the home that the heart is opened, habits are formed, the intellect is awakened, and the character is molded for good or evil.

 — Character is property.  It is the noblest of possessions.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 23.  

 

You can outride the storms, outwit the devil, and outrun your enemies if you pay attention to building the right kind of character.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 26.  

Paul Wood (mother’s maiden name) Finch was born this date (1/27/1910) in Aberdeen, OH.  He was a college professor and president, a missionary evangelist, a holiness preacher, and a man who knew Israel (visited it at least 12 times).  He was one of the greatest men I knew, knowing him from 1965 till his death in 03.

“Now, a man with a fixed heart is not only natural, but he is as bold as a lion; he neither fears men nor devils. He now has the courage of his conviction; he will wash out his mouth, and tear off his lodge pin, and vote the Prohibition ticket. Even if he knows that the man that he voted for would not be elected, he would rather vote for a cleanProhi­bitionist and get defeated in the election than to vote for a rum seller and elect him, and you would, too, if you are natural and bold.”

 

– Bud Robinson, Honey in the Rock (Cincinnati: God’s Revivalist Press, 1913), 103.

 

Underlining mine.  You can remove “Prohi­bitionist,” “rum seller” in the above and apply it to the 21st century.  THINK ABOUT it.  Must we always vote for the lesser of too evils?  (Too is purposely here.)
