Re: Who was Harry Morse ?

Earnestly Contending for the Faith by Elder James Tyson came in the post today. But it had no useful data for my project.

Re: Who was Harry Morse ?

Lucy F. Farrow of Azusa Street is different from "Lulu Farrow" the wife of George Farrow. The birth name of Lulu Farrow was Mina L Brumwell. They were married outside of Portland, Oregon in 1915.

Re: How do evangelists get paid?

Our policy was to pay the predetermined amount. The offerings helped cover the predetermined cost. Offerings were not a bonus of any kind.

Re: How do evangelists get paid?

Some speakers do have set fees. We never paid eyebrow raising amounts for speakers.

Finances were controlled by the church board, not by the pastor. I was treasurer, so we discussed speaker fees...

Re: How do evangelists get paid?

We paid them a predetermined amount. Sometimes, offerings covered this number and sometimes it did not.

Re: Gospels of Matthew without Trinitarian ending

There are zero Greek manuscripts of the book of Matthew with a variant reading of Mt. 28:19. No not one.

There may have been at one time. But there none in existence today.

Re: Are we to repent for our ancestors past sins?

We inherit a sinful nature from Adam.

We do not inherit the sins of our ancestors. Nor does the NT suggest we should repent of any sins other than our own.

As a society, we live with the...

Re: Interpreting tongues

I once was praying with a friend who began to speak in tongues in Spanish. Afterwards, I told him what he was praying.

He did not speak Spanish.

Never since then have I heard a message I...

Re: Sister Aimee Semple McPherson - Foursquare

She rubbed shoulders with entertainers, Azusa Street participants and politicians. That is quite a mix.

Her church is still a church. Which is far more than can be said for most churches in LA...

Re: Act Of Faith. We Use Hands. Why Not Hair?

No one in Acts did anything with their hair in prayer or for any other reason.

Stoneking promotes mysticism.
