In 1965 when the United Church of Canada fell away from the Statement of Faith they had adopted in their 1925 Constitution, I saw the 'handwriting on the wall' for that Evangelical Body. I instructed our Artist to draw my concerned feelings about the downward path of Christianity in Canada. Our Artist's depiction of my concerns which I carried in the Cry of His Coming Magazine in 1965 sadly turned out be prophetic! - Pastor Max Solbrekken

      “I am the door, by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.
     “I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd and know My sheep, and am known of mine.” (John 10: 9-11,14)
     “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8: 32, 36)  – JESUS CHRIST
      “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is One God and One Mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus.” (1 Tim. 2: 3-6)  – ST. PAUL
       “Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we MUST be saved.” (Acts 4: 12)  – ST. PETER

 I AM NOT INTOLERANT, BUT I AM DOGMATIC! I have no truck with falsehood, lies or mere theories of men! I will not compromise the truth! The truth is that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, and the ONLY Saviour of the world. There is none other! Only CHRISTIANITY boasts a resurrection and Only JESUS offers eternal life to all who believe the Gospel, repent of their sins and receive Him into their heart as Lord and Saviour!  (Isaiah 45: 5,6; Acts 4: 12)
     THE BIBLE SAYS: “I am the Lord, and there is none else: there is no God beside Me…That they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none beside Me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.” (Is. 45: 5,6)
     Jesus Christ declared: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14: 6); “Come unto Me all ye who labour and are heavy leaden and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11: 28)
     HE INVITES: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man will hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in unto him and will sup with him and he with Me.” (Rev. 3: 20)
    Open your heart and life to Jesus Christ today, my friend, and you will never be sorry! Amen.                                                                                Ω
