Advice from Billy Sunday
The famous Billy Sunday [William Ashley Sunday, 1862-1935] was an American evangelist whose 300 campaigns were attended by 100,000,000 people.
He followed the footsteps of Dwight L. Moody. He was ordained In 1903 in the Presbyterian Church. He was aided in his campaigns by the well-known composer of hymns, Homer A. Rodeheaver, who conducted the choir.
TWO of the best Bible instructors I have ever had, were converted by Billy Sunday. When one of them took her stand in his meetings to become a Christian, she went to him and said:
“Mr. Sunday, what church should I join? I want to follow the Bible.”
He replied: “Oh, they are all based on the Bible.”
She said: “Well, I know; but I want to follow the one that. . . .”
“Well,” he answered, “they all—. Go and study them and they’ll show you.”
“No,” she said, “you brought me to Jesus, and I know you know. Mr. Sunday, please tell me the one you think comes nearest to the Bible teachings.”
“Well,” he said, “if you want to follow the Bible just as it is written, go and join the Seventh-day Adventists.”
And she did. She became a wonderful Bible instructor. These two Billy Sunday converts became Bible instructors and helped me to win many, many hundreds of people—in fact, about two thousand—to the truth.
