Again, when James and John suggested that they call fire down from Heaven to destroy His enemies, Jesus rebuked them.

At another time, he said (John 10:10), "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and
These words, along with other parts of John 14, 15, and 16, suggest both concern for us and a plan for our future that would constitute adventure beyond our wildest imagination.
Quoted are such investigators as Dr. Allen Hynek, Gabriel Green of AFSCA, Jim Lorenzen of APRO, and Jack Acuff of NICAP.

3. Post-Condon NICAP: 1970-1980 (John Acuff; Stuart Nixon; Alan Hall)

This was the beginning of the Nixon-Acuff era (Stuart Nixon, a former low-level staff member, and Jack Acuff, an entrepreneur) and finally, in late 1978, Alan Hall, a former CIA employee became president.
In May 1970, John L. Acuff was elected President. Prior to that he had been Executive Director of the Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers, and Vice President for Plans and Programs of Data-Medics Corporation.
Acuff had found a niche in managing several small associations simultaneously, skimming his salary or managerial fee off the top.
I had almost no dealings at all with the new management, which prided itself on its alleged business acumen. In all fairness, Nixon and Acuff did a creditable job for a while, publishing good information in the U.F.O. Investigator and advocating serious attention to UFOs.
In 1971, with John Acuff as President and Colonel Bryan still on the Board, two new figures appeared on the scene as Board Members.
In August 1978, Dr. John B. Carlson, an astronomy professor at the University of Maryland, and I learned about an attempt by NICAP Board Members Hartranft and Richardson to settle affairs with Acuff and revive the dying organization.
Acuff now claimed that NICAP was seriously in debt and owed him a substantial amount of money for administrative services. He had been making overtures to various groups trying to find a buyer for the organization's assets.
In October 1978, Acuff was forced to resign as president, but was allowed to remain on the Board and retain custody of the files.
John L. Acuff, Jr., Chairman (former Executive Director, Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers)
