On July 14, 1940, at the age of 16, Ben Bates gave his life to the Lord while attending a small Baptist revival in Little Rock, Arkansas. But by 1945, he had wandered so far away from the Lord and become so disillusioned that he contemplated taking his own life. Placing a note in his pocket, he began walking to the Main Street Bridge . . . when someone on the street handed him a gospel tract. Instead of jumping from the bridge, he walked to the First Baptist Church of Little Rock and gave his life back to the Lord. It was the startling message in large letters on the tract that got his attention: STOP! HAVE YOU CONSIDERED YOUR DESTINY?
I’ve been around Christian publishing since 1987 when I helped our ministry self-publish an important resource for Vietnam veterans and their families. That book went on to be picked up by a royalty publisher and has since sold over 250,000 copies with a million in print.
I’m glad you’re here…stop by often and take advantage of all the information we make available.
