The pie-shaped structure will have a floor space of square feet. Other than for some skilled trade work, the hall is being erected by volunteer labor from the congregation. Mr. Rose said.

All our membership have secular jobs to fulfill as well. It is a busy time." Although Witnesses are currently disseminating a "last days" message concern- ing 1975. they see no conflict between a building project and Bible prophecy. "We'll go right on building the kingdom until Jehovah shuts the door." Mr. Rose said. "Even if we moved into the building only one or two days before the end of man's system, it would be worth it. The building itself is a testimony in a time when other churches struggle to find ministers and keep their big buildings open." Mr. Rose pointed to a Bible passage. Revelation 17, saying Witnesses believe there was a battle in heaven during earth time 1914. "The devil and his spirits were hoisted out of heaven and now are ventine their wrath in man's system because they know their time is Mr. Rose said. He went on to note how secular historians have observed 1914 seems to be a turning point in history. "Until that time a gun drawn on a cart by horses was the most fearsome Mr. Rose said. "In the few years since then, we have quickly progressed through cars and planes to modern jet aircraft. There was never anything like the two world wars previously, and really wars haven't stopped since there is continuous fighting around the world. "Economists point to a collapse of the monetary system; famine has struck many parts of the world and even places that have food on store shelves are almost in a famine none of the ordinary people can afford to buy much meat." By checking Bible chronology. Witnesses have established 1975 as "the end of man's system" Mr. Rose said. "Now. people have a chance to hear, to check and cross- check their Bible, to make some choices." Mr. Rose said. "We expect persecution will come soon. Witnesses have already experienced some during the two world wars, and recently in Africa. Governments have already tried to have us banned. At some point, the kingdoms of the world will all suddenly turn against Jehovah's people, who will be tested to the hilt. At the very last minute Jehovah will step in. and the nations will know then who they are fighting." Mr. Rose said Witnesses do not necessarily believe their Kingdom Hall will be destroyed at the battle of Ar- mageddon. "Even if it is. it will have achieved its purpose. Jesus is now ruling in heaven. One day he will return to rule and restore the earth to its original paradise during a thousand year reign."

As rabbis here explain it. the pressures on Jewish students have come both from peers and from a Christianity- oriented atmosphere that has entered into school activities such as assemblies. School policy in Greensboro is that no ac- tivities of a sectarian religious nature are allowed in the schools, but officials say that spontaneous happenings and peer group discussions are hard to control. And more religious literature is being handed out in school halls. Alarmed by the number of calls from Jewish parents whose children have become disturbed by religious issues, some rabbis are linking what they consider proselytizing to the evangelistic aspects of Key 73. defined as an ecumenical movement designed to strengthen Christianity. However. Rabbi Arnold Task of Temple Emanuel. contended that Key 73 was not the cause of the problem, and noted that the "Jesus cheer" being given at a high school assembly, where attendance was compulsory, occurred last year before Key 73 was initiated. "In all fairness, the connec- tion is incidental." task said in an interview. "The problems have gone on for a long tiVne. Apparently. Key 73 has given new impetus for in- dividuals who gel carried away by the spiritual He even spoke favorably of Key 73 in terms of strengthen- ing the church within the Christian community. He singled out a position taken by the western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church that specifically exempted Jews from Key 73 efforts. "But where the idea is to br- ing the message of Christiani- ty to every person and home on the continent. said Task. "There are those in- dividuals who take this to mean they have complete freedom and license to go to everyone, including our own kids." Other than having offered special observances in some churches, the Christian denominations in North Carolina do not appear to have adopted the comprehensive approach conceived for Key CHRISTIAN TABERNACLE Corner Slh Ave. and 13th SI.
