Our purpose in publishing a sampling of the correspondence we have received, in the words of Arthur W. Pink:

“…the time has again arrived for us to indicate to our loyal supporters before the Throne of Grace something of the manner and extent to which the Hearer of prayer has been pleased to grant their requests.”

“Our object in compiling this…feature is to evoke praise and thanksgiving on the part of those who are most deeply interested in this work, by quoting excerpts from some of the letters at hand telling of help and blessing received, under God…”

“Our purpose…is to evoke praise unto the Lord, that in this cloudy and dark day He is still ministering to His own, giving seed to the Sower, and then blessing the same unto the eater.  We know not why the mighty God should condescend to use one so feeble and unworthy; sufficient for us that He is pleased to do so.  Our longing is to be used more widely, in sending ‘portions’ to a large number of Christ’s scattered and hungry sheep.  Will you not pray more definitely, dear reader, that this may be so; and that God will graciously fit and furnish the writer.”

  This is so true [the pamphlet Computers: Their Use and Abuse]!  I have just finished reading it, and I know it has also affected my life – I was aware that it was starting to trap me as well, but somehow could not break free – you have described it in an excellent way and I want to turn away from this “hypnotizing” evil – it is really a time-stealer.  Thank you for bringing this information over so clearly, it is a snare and I want to break free from this “abuse”.  It is useful, but we need to be so careful not to let it become a snare to us.

  Thank you for sharing this article with me, I am also going to share with others.

  Thank you for your article on computers [the pamphlet Computers: Their Use and Abuse].  Yes, indeed a lot need be said and you have said it.  I will forward it.  Thankfully I have never gone onto Facebook or Twitter and do not intend to do so either.  Just do not want any of those things.  Let the world do what they want.

  Parents so need to be warned.  It must be so hard to be parents of young children today with so many enticements.  The Lord bless and keep you.
