White, Alma  
The Titanic Tregedy: God Speaking to the Nations
 Picture
Publisher: The Pentecostal Union (Pillar of Fire), 1913 Bound Brook, NJ.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "..Men have ceased to develop muscle, which is absolutely necessary to character building. Their attention has been turned to other things. Scientific investigation and civil and mechanical engineering have become all-absorbing passions, and men fail to acknowledge God as the source of their achievements. There are those who have inherited fortunes who know not the worth of a dollar and have no true conception of life. They imagine the world was created for their special benefit and have but little concern for the welfare of others. Fortune has favored them and they live and act as though there was not a great tribunal before which they must some day be arraigned. There were many such persons found on the Titanic when she went to her doom on the morning of April 15th, carrying with her into the depths of the sea 1, 635 souls. On the floating palace men defied God and His laws, and many refused to even try to make their escape after it was known that the vessel was doomed. Money, the god of this world, dominated their lives, and made them presumptuous enough to believe that the vessel could not go down. An object lesson was given to the world like the handwriting on the wall, foretelling the doom of nations. The Scriptures verify these things and men have o0nly to read and understand, but alas, so few do. While the sinking of the great vessel seemed to be the most cruel of all disasters to those who so keenly felt their loss, yet back of the calamity we see the hand of a merciful God.." 211 pages + 12 pages of advertisements for the Pentecostal Union, founded by Alma White. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
