As part of a series in 1965 Cecil Willis wrote an article reviewing a book entitled THE MIRROR OF A MOVEMENT, subtitled “Churches of Christ as seen through the Abilene Christian College Lectureship.” Although lengthy, this is an excellent piece reviewing the progression of modernism at Abilene Christian. The review discusses views for the church, ideologies of the early and late speakers at the lectureship and the topic of evolution and plenary inspiration of the Bible.

Appearing in the last issue of searching the Scriptures is an article by the editor at that time – Donnie Rader with an overview of the paper’s history He discusses the tremendous efforts of its previous editors H.E. Phillips and Connie Adams, some of its policies, and its impact. As I read this article I could not help but be affected by what this paper meant to these men.

In October 2000 a touching article appeared entitled “Eulogy for Mom”. I can only assume this was delivered by Lewis Willis at the funeral of his mother Wilhelmina Elizabeth Thompson Willis. With Mother’s Day approaching and some discourse occurring in the political arena regarding the value of stay-at-home moms, this piece is especially poignant. This article has several stories which tug at the heart strings, will make you smile, and remind us of the importance of this irreplaceable role both to the family and to society at large. In regards to her value, I am left with the question “Where else could she have invested her talents that would have meant more to her, her family, and to the future of the Lord’s church?”

Free for today only over in the Amazon app store the ACT virtual printer app. I have been meaning to write more about ways to share information between a computer and your Kindle device. in short, this application allows you to share something from your computer to a Kindle device connected via WiFi. Very handy if you ran across something you’d like to read later but don’t want to go to the trouble of saving the file and transferring it via a USB cable. I have tried several applications, my current favorite is Evernote, but there are several which are roughly equivalent. I have not used this method yet, but plan on trying it soon.

In general, I intend this group to be about spiritually related materials. I plan on making exceptions in cases such as this where I feel the topic is relevant in helping you get the most out of your device. After all, having a huge library of literature does you no good if you can’t use it.
They are led to believe that the Church of Christ is a calm, placid lake, with an unruffled surface, over which men with indolent ease float to the promised haven of rest. But this never was, nor ever will be the true character of the Church of Christ. Through conflicts and strife, through watchfulness and ceaseless vigilance, the crown is to be won. – David Lipscomb Gospel Advocate, Volume XII, Number 45, Nov. 18, 1869.
In October 1958, Cecil Willis wanted to highlight by reprinting in the pages of Truth Magazine, an article which had been pinned In 1869. The author of this article, David Lipscomb, is defending the stance the Gospel Advocate had taken in regards to the discussion of controversial subjects in its pages. Some readers had charged they could not use the Gospel Advocate as a teaching tool with new converts because it contained these controversies.

in 1996 Johnny Stringer wrote a very good article about dealing with differences between brethren. He very aptly deals with differences which arise regarding congregational activities as well as personal matters. He further breaks down these categories into several situations providing sound reasoning and many Scripture references. A good resource for dealing with the inevitable issues that will arise between brethren..
