For those of you who are new to this work, I would like to share with you, in brief, the foundation upon which it is built.
I believe that the original Hebrew and Greek of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired. “All Scripture (Gr. graphe, that which is written) is God-breathed” (2 Tim. 3: 16).
I, as an independent Bible student and teacher, “search the Scriptures daily,” and I publish the results of my findings regardless of the approval or the disapproval of anyone.
The Bible is infallible, but the searcher is not. I will make mistakes, but I trust that you, as a fellow Bible student, will search the Scriptures to see whether the things I say are so.
I will never apologize for the Bible, nor for any teaching which may from time to time come to light. While I want to avoid any appearance of callousness and desire not to wound the feelings of my brethren, yet I will not shrink back from anything I have learned.
I am not attempting to “start a church,” a “Meeting,” an “Organization,” or a circle of “Fellowship.” All are welcome here. I impose no code or terms of fellowship, neither do I declare as if I had apostolic authority, who is in or out of “the faith.” My joy is seeing those from different backgrounds being drawn together by their shared love of the word of God, and seeing those who were once enslaved by the fetters of tradition experiencing the truthfulness of the phrase, “the truth shall make you free.”
Let us not “bite and devour one another,” but taking our stand on God’s Word, “Let us stand fast in the freedom wherewith Christ has made us free.”
