The Porter-Dugger Debate

F. E. W. Jr.

The best discussion of Seventh Day Adventism that I have ever read is the Porter-Dugger Debate. It is a complete answer, put in the Curtis Porter way, to the best arguments that can be made in favor of Adventist doctrine. Mr. Dugger was as able a representative of the Adventist positions as can be found. Brother Porter's answers to his arguments are direct and brief, but complete. It brings to the reader the ready material needed to meet the turns and twists made by Adventists in their efforts to bind Sabbath-keeping on Christians.

In addition to the Sabbath question, Brother Porter affirms what the New Testament teaches with reference to the first day of the week, and the Christian's duty with reference to its observance. There is a wealth of information in Brother Porter's treatment of this proposition, and his arguments were untouchable, and therefore, unanswered by his opponent.

There are two worthy things that can be accomplished by ordering this discussion. First: Every student of the Bible needs it for the information it contains. Second: Brother Porter's work has been limited because of necessary caution with reference to his physical condition, hence, his income has been materially reduced. In ordering this debate you will be aiding him while obtaining far more in return for yourself. My suggestion is that you order not one, but a dozen of these books and hand them out to your Adventist neighbors. It is the answer to all the questions they can ask.

The price of the book is $1.00 and it is worth one hundred times that to anybody who has Adventism to meet. Order it from W. Curtis Porter, Monette, Arkansas.
