Chapter 1—Lessons From Scripture Regarding City Evangelism

(The Old Testament)

THE ANTEDILUVIAN WORLD—ENOCH

Earliest Example of City Evangelism.—Enoch walked with God, and yet he did not live in ... any city polluted with ... violence and wickedness.—Manuscript 94, 1903 (Evangelism, 78). MTC 11.1

Enoch Did Not Live With the Wicked.—He [Enoch] did not make his abode with the wicked. ... He placed himself and his family where the atmosphere would be as pure as possible. Then at times he went forth to the inhabitants of the world with his God- given message. ... After proclaiming his message, he always took back with him to his place of retirement some who had received the warning.—Manuscript 42, 1900 (Maranatha, 184). MTC 11.2

Enoch's Methods Will Become Our Methods.—Wise plans are to be laid, in order that ... work may be done to the best possible advantage. More and more, as wickedness increases in the great cities, we shall have to work them from outpost centers. This is the way Enoch labored in the days before the flood, when wickedness was rife in every populous community, and when violence was in the land.—The Review and Herald, September 27, 1906. MTC 11.3

SODOM

Love for Souls Motivated Abraham's Prayer.—Though MTC 11.4
