F. LaGard Smith to DLU
James W. Boyd
So David Lipscomb University has added LaGard Smith
to the faculty. There is nothing startling or surprising
about that. Smith and DLU are "peas in a pod." Another instance
of "birds of a feather...."

Our local congregation mails approximately seven thousand
flyers into our community every month. These flyers deal with false
doctrines in the religious world, the problem of denominationalism
and moral issues such as abortion, homosexuality, etc. Each month
we send a business reply card which allows people to write back
requesting further Bible study.
It was said of Paul, the apostle, that "He that once
persecuted us now preachest the faith of which he once made havoc"
(Gal. 1:23). There was an abrupt change in Paul's life. He
said of himself before king Agrippa, "I verily thought with
myself that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus
of Nazareth. And this I also did in Jerusalem: I both shut up many
of the saints in prison, having received authority from the chief
priests, and when they were put to death I gave my voice against
them" (Acts 26:9-10). In writing to the young evangelist,
Timothy, Paul said of himself, "I thank him that enabled me,
even Christ Jesus our Lord, for that he counted me faithful,
appointing me to his service; though I was before a blasphemer, and
a persecutor, and injurious: howbeit I obtained mercy, because I
did it ignorantly and in unbelief..." (1 Tim. 1:12-13). Paul
progressed from persecuting the church and trying to destroy its
doctrine, to upholding the church and proclaiming the Gospel while
under constant persecution and threat of death. A commendable and
notable change took place in his life!

"The contemporary Christian music group, Acappella, will present a concert at Cookeville First Baptist Church on Sunday, May 9 at 6p.m. in the church sanctuary. Admission is free and child care will be provided. The group has performed more than 2,000 concerts to millions worldwide in the last 16 years. Doors will open at 5:15 for their 90 minute concert. From Herald-Citizen, Cookeville, Tenn. Friday May 7, 1999" ...Thomas F. Eaves Sr., Cookeville, TN. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Acappella makes no distinction between denominations and the Lord's church. They had just as soon "perform" at one as the other. It's amazing why brethren continue to invite them. They have long ago departed from the "strait and narrow." As a matter of fact, they have been in error even from their inception.] "Please take me off of your mailing list of Seek The Old Paths. Thanks" ...Mary Harsh, Magnolia, AR.

Although I don't compare myself to Elijah, I believe that I know how he felt. I have wondered many times if there were any faithful churches left but after reading your paper I am relieved to know that my old home state has one in Corinth. I was raised in Greenwood and baptized by C.M. Allen. We are compiling a short list of members who would benefit greatly from your paper.

"I have been reading your publication for quite some time. As a young preacher I find your articles very uplifting and informing. I wish more young Christians would read your publication. It's sad to see so many young Christians in the state of "liberalism" as they are in. I thank God everyday that I had parents to "raise me in the way that I should go." KEEP UP THE FIGHT!!" ...Mark Johnson, Ardmore, OK. "We are still enjoying your publication. Many thanks. Keep up the good work. In Christian love" ...Doyle Castleberry.
