"In All of Their Afflictions, HE Was Afflicted", as it Was Said of Jesus.

"The Pioneer of Civil Rights."

Tasting of the undercover savagery of the brutes of humanity, FATHER DIVINE went south, subjecting HIMSELF to thirty-two lynch mobs at a time when no one was caring about the suffering of the economically and socially enslaved people there. No one was marching or demonstrating for civil rights; there was no one to publicize the heinous crimes done by lynch mobbers.

It was FATHER DIVINE Who cared.

'. . . he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities";

as it is written,

'. . . because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.'

Coming through with Love untouched when the flame of race hatred was raging, HE proved the reality of the Gospel of CHRIST as it was known by the people but not lived, and erased this sin against humanity so completely that today lynching is not even heard of.

By Personal demonstration FATHER DIVINE shows that the CHRIST Life can be lived and can satisfy every good desire. Without purse or scrip HE proves for all time that the Gospel can be preached without taking collections, love offerings and the like, and that

'The Spirit of the Consciousness of the Presence of GOD is the source of all supply.'

and that

'Out of one blood GOD created all nations of men to dwell upon the face of the whole earth.'
