Issue 564 – Faith and Prayer History

My life-long experience as a businessman, and as a Christian worker among young men, has taught me that the only power in this world that can effectively keep one from evil and sin, in all the varied and often attractive forms which they assume, is that which comes from an intimate knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ as a present Savior. And I can also heartily testify that the safe Guide Book by which one may be led to Christ is the Bible, the Word of God, which is inspired by the Holy Ghost.

– George Williams, Founder of the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), 1844
