In Christ's day the situation was urgent. "He knew that unless there was a decided change in the principles and purposed of the human race, all would be lost."1 This urgency was intensified by the fact that He had so short a time to accomplish so much. So He did not use the systems or conventions of the world. He did not borrow techniques or procedures from the preachers, teachers, or physicians of His time. "By methods peculiarly His own, Christ helped all who where in sorrow and affliction."2 He began such a movement as the world has never seen. Within the space of a single generation the world had been reached with His life-changing gospel.
We believe that the situation is urgent today too. The world is on a rapid course to destruction, and unless God's people work diligently to bring about a decided change in this generation—it might be forever to late. "We are to work as Christ worked, in the same practical lines. Then we will be safe. The divine commission needs no reform. Christ's way of presenting the truth cannot be improved upon."3 "Christ's method alone will give true success in reaching the people."4 We must reactivate the Galilee Protocol!
