Where the world comes to study the Bible

The World Needs Men …

1. who cannot be bought;

2. whose word is their bond;

3. who put character above wealth;

4. who possess opinions and a will;

5. who are larger than their vocations;

6. who do not hesitate to take chances;

7. who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;

8. who will be as honest in small things as in great things;

9. who will make no compromise with wrong;

10. whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;

11. who will not say they do it” because everybody else does it”;

12. who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;

13. who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;

14. who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;

15. who can say “no” with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says “yes.”
