SOUL-WINNERS FOR CHRIST
Jesse M. Hendley
Jude Verse 23
"Others save, pulling them out of the fire."
I want to speak to you now from the Word of God, the
Book of Jude, verse 23.
America Is Sinful
I was riding in a train back during the Korean War.
The lady opposite me saw me reading my Bible and said,
"You are a preacher, aren't you?" I said, "Yes." She
said, "I want to ask you a question," and she came
over and sat down beside me. She told me she had a
son in the service. She said, "Tell me, why doesn't
God stop war?" I suppose I shocked her a bit when I

outstanding magazines a statement (at that time) that
there were eight million homosexuals in the United

for her sins. He warns us that He punished the people
of Sodom "for an example" and they are "suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire." Jude 7. The Judge of all
the earth always does RIGHT. If He judged Sodom He
will judge America! I want to say to you, my friends,
that neither our nation nor any other nation will ever
