A Crusade for Sanity!

Here's WHY your PLAIN TRUTH has no subscription price.
Here's WHY thousands of people from many nations feel they have a genuine part in CHANGING this world!


THIS is a wretched world.

Every thinking man and woman in America now knows that. And you know it.

Men like John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy are with sickening regularity murdered for standing up for what they believe. Hard-working, long-suffering mothers like Mrs. Rose Kennedy walk alone in their gardens. Faces etched with lines of pain and grief. Shoulders a little stooped by burdens a mother should never have to bear. Eyes turned toward the ground in helpless bewilderment.

This ought not be. It makes no sense whatever in this "Land of the free and home of the brave."

Although Almighty God certainly permits our modern society to fester with its wretched sickness, He has revealed a way that would prevent all the confusion, the suffering, the hate and violence that we see growing around us daily. And most of you realize deeply and fully that man — the politicians, scientists and leaders — simply does NOT have the answer.


The Crusade for SANITY

There is a last train to sanity. It's about to leave the station. Would you like to get aboard?

That may sound rather metaphorical. But in all too many ways it is terrifyingly true.

Of course, men have always had their "crusades" and their causes in this mixed-up, confused world. Most are very sincere in this type of thing. So here in America we have Vice-President Hubert Humphrey trying to carry the mantle of the Johnson regime — claiming he will "unify" the country, but be a little quicker to talk peace, press for more government help for the Negroes and the poor.

Senator Eugene McCarthy is almost a "peace at any price" candidate regarding the Vietnam war. He intends, apparently, to "out-liberal" even Mr. Humphrey with vast government-spending projects to help solve the problems of the big cities, the Negroes, the poor and the problems of higher education as well. Of course, Mr. McCarthy hasn't explained — nor have any of the candidates — where all these vast billions of dollars in government money are coming from. Or if there will even be a United States Government if we don't quit spending overwhelmingly more money than we are taking into the National Treasury!

And so it goes with political candidates, theorists and "do-gooders" here in America, Britain, France and the other nations as well.

They do NOT give solutions for the swiftly mounting crisis of worldwide FAMINE which nearly all experts agree is now the world's number one problem. They do NOT give any real solutions to the nuclear arms race — daily threatening EXTINCTION of all human life from off the face of this earth! They do not even propose full solutions to the mushrooming problems of polluted lakes and rivers, and polluted air. Too many votes would be lost if they did!

And how many voters would literally switch parties if some candidate came out with a ringing condemnation of parents, educators, preachers, child psychologists and theorists for utterly FAILING to instill in the new generation a deep and abiding respect for the laws of God and man?

Do you get the picture?

"The way of PEACE have they not known" (Romans 3:17).

But our God and Creator has REVEALED a way to peace and happiness within our borders, and for mutual respect and tranquility between all nations of the world.

The proclamation of THAT WAY is what this Work of God is all about! It is to be given to the world as a "witness" just before the END of this present age (Matthew 24:14). It is a literal CRUSADE for SANITY — involving a willingness on man's part to obey the revealed physical and spiritual LAWS that would produce peace, happiness and universal prosperity.

The power of this crusade is GROWING mightily — and increasing tens of thousands of men and women are beginning to take part in what they see is "the last train to sanity."


We Stand ALONE

Frankly, this Work is sponsored and endowed by NO ONE except God Himself. As the work of John the Baptist — the voice of one crying out in the Wilderness" — so this present Work of God stands ALONE and set apart from all other groups and organizations of men in proclaiming Christ's true message.

Your Bible says in Amos 3:7, "Surely the Eternal God will do nothing, but he REVEALETH his secret unto his servants the prophets." This Work stands ALONE in revealing the meaning of what is taking place on the world scene today and what WILL very soon take place in major world events! As our longtime readers well know, we no longer merely say something is "going" to happen, but often that it is happening right now.

As Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong's voice has thundered over the air for more than a third of a century, Britain is swiftly descending in dignity and might as a world power. As we have specifically prophesied ahead of time for decades, the British Empire is virtually GONE! The greatest sea gate on earth — the Suez Canal — is gone from the British Empire and Western control! Events are under way this year preparing the way for America to LOSE CONTROL of that other vital sea gate controlling world trade, power and influence — the Panama Canal! Singapore is GONE — no longer a member of the British Commonwealth!

Again, as we have warned for more than a third of a century, a United States of Europe is swiftly rising which portends terrible trouble for the British Commonwealth and American peoples in this generation! With the weakening of Charles de Gaulle's authority and the Russian Communist hold on the nations of Eastern Europe, the last restraints are swiftly being removed holding back the full-scale resurrection of the "Beast" pictured prophetically in Revelation 17.


A PREPARATION for Christ's Return

Notice this striking prophecy for OUR day: "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6).

This basic but little understood prophecy obviously refers to a man or work preparing the way for Christ's Second Coming at the time of God's intervention in human affairs, prophetically called "The Day of the Lord."

The work of John the Baptist was a first and typical fulfillment of this great end-time Work. For Luke was inspired to write about the work of John: "And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord" (Luke 1:17). You will notice that Luke said John was "in the spirit and power of Elijah," not that he WAS Elijah. But the work was that empowered by the same spirit which guided Elijah to turn Israel's eyes of old to the true God, to help the fathers' hearts be turned to their children and to the preservation of the family, and to cause many disobedient to begin walking in the wisdom of the just.

Mr. Garner Ted Armstrong makes The WORLD TOMORROW broadcast for every day — seven days a week. He does these — as many hundreds can testify, who have watched him, impromptu and with no script and often with only a few minutes direct preparation except for his years of Bible study, prayer, contact with God, and vast experience.

When you hear him, then, impromptu, speaking from the heart the wonderful God-inspired analyses, solutions and real ANSWERS to the problems of dating, courtship, marriage, child rearing and such basic issues dealing with the preservation of the family — do you realize that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in your very ears? WHERE ELSE on this earth can you obtain real ANSWERS to such basic questions as: "Why did God let Timmy die?" And the problems of human suffering, war and the fact that only a VERY FEW are being called to any kind of "Christian" salvation in this age when you consider that most of the earth is Communist, pagan or at best agnostic?

Again, you read in The PLAIN TRUTH the real MEANING of such current problems as the "Hippie Movement," the jangling discordant "music" we are forced to endure, the chaos and upheaval in modern universities and education. As you read these things — and the specific and detailed prophecies for the future — don't you realize deep within yourself that there is NO PLACE ELSE on earth today where this understanding is made available?

Increasing thousands do feel this way. They have become "Co-Workers" with us and with Christ, in this vast, worldwide Work of God. That is WHY your PLAIN TRUTH has no subscription price. That is WHY there is no whining, begging, nagging, pleading or even hinting over The WORLD TOMORROW broad-cast for money or financial help of any sort. So far as we know, we stand completely ALONE in this God-inspired policy, too!
