“About Truth”



Truth:   “The conformity to fact or reality; in exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.” And may we take the liberty of adding: “Conformity to fact of word, whether written, spoken, referenced or acted out.” If the truth of History constitutes its whole value; how much more so, is the truth of Gods Word to His Church?       Editor

Meditating on Truth

In our definitions from Mr. Webster, we could not help but comment on the statement: “The truth of history constitutes its whole value.” This is a part of the definition given for the word truth (not the only definition depending on usage).

Indeed, we would not know much about the truth of how our nation came to be, if the history we have documented is untrue. What value would there be for a history book, where everything recorded in it was either filled with error, or deliberately changed to make it say what someone wanted it to say? Thus Mr. Webster recognized one hundred ninety years ago, the value of truth to history; that it would have no value, were it not the truth.

When I sit reading my KJT (King James Translation) of the Holy Scriptures, I have found myself lately, meditating on what is said here about truth with concern to our history. How can we not apply the import of this view to the veracity of the truth in the translation of the Holy Scriptures? How could we sit in comfort of a peaceful mind, lest we certainly knew we were reading the truth?   Editor

"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain."  (Psalms 127:1)

Questions come and go about how to build the church. Maybe we ought to update our buildings, maybe we ought to get something in the church to keep our children entertained, or maybe we ought to start youth camps, ball teams, special musical programs that will entice people to come to church and last of all, let us quit preaching the truth because it is so offensive to those in the world. David says; "Except the Lord build the house." It seems as if maybe we ought to quit trying to build the house, because it is the Lord`s house. I think it is time for us to quit trying to do the Lord`s work and confine our work to what the Lord would have us to do. I think what we need in the church is more of what we already have. We need to pray for God`s blessing upon the church, pray that the Lord would send his Spirit in a powerful way and open up the heart that we feel more of a need to see the Lord, and that our spirit might be revived to receive that which is being preached unto us. One of the disciples said, "Lord I believe, help thou my unbelief."

Elder George Walker (dec)


Flee for Refuge to Jesus; lay hold on the hope which IS set before us. Heb. 6:17-20 - 

1. It is immutability and 2. An Oath.   – God cannot DIE, DENY  or LIE.   Heb. 6:17-20

“Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath:  :18  That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:  :19  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;  :20  Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec."

Heb. 5, 6, 7. HIGH PRIEST OF PEACE.   Now please mediate on this BEAUTY.

“About Propaganda”

• Propaganda is an example of how people can make a bad idea sound good.

• Propaganda is when folks tell you lies to get you to believe what they say is the truth.

• Propaganda is easy to spread, cause all you need to tell them is how the “big one” won't get away.

• Propaganda is fun to spread; because you get to talk people into blaming somebody you don't like, for doing all the bad things you are doing.


• Propaganda can make you feel good about yourself for awhile, til the truth catches up to you.

• Propaganda always tells you how good it can be tomorrow, if you will help do some things that are wrong today.

• The apostle Paul was a propagandist; which was a good thing, when there was only one version of the truth.

Propaganda: “Truth is what I can get you to believe.”


The Gospel Commission


Beyond the O.T. Laws of Moses, I herein write with reference to the  N.T.  GOSPEL COMMISSIONS as that of JESUS CHRIST, found mainly in  Matt. Mark, Luke & John, as JOHN  THE BAPTIST was the first NOTABLE N.T. Baptist Preacher, as Jesus even  recorded about him as being of the  greatest in  Matt. 11:11.  So. Herein we learn that Jesus was FIRST with  this ministry in Matt. 4:22—25 teaching and operating as a GREAT natural  PHYSICIAN, for folks with natural illnesses, then comes the SERMON  ON THE MOUNT which becomes very SPIRITUAL in Matt. 5, 6, 7.   In Matt. 10:1 Jesus called the 12 Apostles. 

Then finally comes the Apostle Paul writing mainly to & for us GENTILES, being called in translation from anti-to-pro., from “Saul” to “Paul”  in Acts  8 & 9, then writing 14 of the 27 Books of the N.T.   Then the 22 chapters of Revelation were written by the Apostle John, as with a special calling, and he began warning and advising us of the END TIME and the final 2nd Coming of  Jesus Christ.  You will notice each  minister had a special technique, even Jesus employed many times that of  Parables, which teaches PRINCIPLES  beyond just the literary Word.
