Now hers was an interesting story. Well, before the war she had married a doctor. I believe his... the man was in the air force and been stationed at different parts of the country. Then after the war her husband had been at the Pentagon and after close to 20 years of marriage dumped her for a younger woman and was able to bribe the children by offering them new cars and this sort of thing as he had money. <audiopointer>9:12</audiopointer>

Well, she returned to her home town, went back to what she had been doing more than 20 years earlier, working in the emergency room of a major hospital. And I asked her what was the difference that she saw there after being absent over 20 years? And she said, “I can tell you best that while everything seems to be the same, it is different. When before the war I worked in this hospital in the emergency room, whenever someone came in injured for emergency treatment, they would immediately ask when they were ushered in, brought in on a stretcher if I would call pastor so and so and let them know that they were in the hospital.”

[Weaver] Well, I would say, first of all, that what she enunciated for a while has gotten worse. I think that it went further and further, but then I believe there was a turning point that is happening now in the fact that there are the elect or the remnant that are seen that true faith is in every area of our life and that there is no separation and can be no separation. And slowly, but surely, this truth is being inculcated in people all over. And... and those who are, indeed, being taught the Word of God, who are assimilating the Word of God, it is coming back out into the forefront. <audiopointer>12:27</audiopointer>

An illustration of this is I know a gentleman that I mentioned to you earlier who is a probation and a parole officer who was asked to speak to his colleagues and he did so on the subject that prisons were unbiblical in what God demanded was restitution. And so here was a man literally, although he worked in that department, was putting his job at risk because he realized the truth of God was to be applied even in that area where he was working.

[Weaver] And the answer to that is yes, because just about everywhere I go I see Sprinkle Publication books. And whether it is on the life of Stonewall Jackson or the great revival in the confederate armies or ... or any of these books that he has given on the reformed faith, they are literally just everywhere and people consume that literature and he does an excellent job. And I must confess that even the conferences that he has there at his church has really done a great deal to stimulate the people not only in the faith, but in studying their own history and their heritage of the faith. <audiopointer>42:55</audiopointer>

[Rushdoony] Well, at our own conference this past Saturday in Sacramento, it was interesting to see how many Sprinkle books there were on the book tables. He has done a great deal and someone ought to do a story on his contribution to the reformed faith in the United States.
