SYMBOL of THE BIBLE FOR TODAY centers
around an open Bible. This signifies that the principles of the bible are the
exclusive principles which form the FOUNDATION of
THE BIBLE FOR TODAY.
The shield pictures "the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to
quench all the fiery darts of the wicked" (Ephesians 6:16). On the left of
the shield, the darkness is seen encroaching; on the right of the shield, the
light is controlling. Down the center of the shield is a sword, representing
sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God" (Ephesians 6:17). It is the
Spiritís "Sword" of "the Word of God" which pierces and
divides between the light and the darkness.
And so, amid the "TODAY" of a busy, hell-bound world,
there stands, as in the days of old "THE BIBLE!" It is this BIBLE which
ever endures; and it is this BIBLE which must ever be the "critic"
(Hebrews 4:12) or "judge" of what is genuine "darkness" and
what is genuine "light." (Ephesians 5:11)
History of The Bible For Today
In February, 1965, while a Pastor in
Newton, Massachusetts, Rev Dr. D. A. Waite felt led of the Lord to begin THE
BIBLE FOR TODAY which, at that time, consisted of a radio broadcast
heard several times each week over WRIB, Providence, Rhode Island, and, for a
while also, on WSOL, Tampa, Florida. On April 11, 1966, THE BIBLE FOR
TODAY was duly incorporated as a nonprofit, tax exempt, religious
organization under the laws of the State of New Jersey. Although somewhat less
active in the intervening years, on April 1, 1971, THE BIBLE FOR TODAY,
Incorporated, again began an active ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ in an
expanded and enlarged way.
