• Politics

• Education

: college professors and high school science teachers

• Science

: paleontologists, geologists, archaeologists, biologists, cosmolo-

gists, and meteorologists

• Philosophy

: philosophy professors

• Medicine

: doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists

• Media

: news anchors and writers

• History

: non-revisionist historians and teachers

• Language

: linguists fluent in Arabic, Chinese, and Korean, as well as

biblical languages—especially Greek and Hebrew

• Fine Arts

: movie producers, directors, writers, and novel writers

• Bible

: preachers, teachers, elders, deacons, Christian wives and

mothers, authors, and lecturers.

you could be of service in the Lord’s army.
