On this day in 1888 Princess Isabel freed all slaves in Brazil. The process occurred in relative peace—at least, there was no war over it. In 1961 Catholics began commemoration of it as the Day of Brazilian Fraternity (or Brotherhood). Whenever the world speaks of #brotherhood, we cannot but remember that the only true state […]
Slightly imperfect, but a great deal on hardback edition of the Plain English Bible. See details here. #bible, #bible-versions, #deals, #translationsLogin to Reply
Two important stories on BNc today: http://brotherhoodnews.com/2013/12/30/ And my editorial today on Forthright Mag, giving a great and motivating view of the big picture: http://forthright.net/2013/12/30/epic/ #eternal-purpose, #gospel, #news, #plan-of-salvationLogin to Reply
This has been a productive week. I’ve uploaded many more brotherhood books for free download in pdf format (optimized for reading on your computer, iPad, or any other such device), and also in e-Sword format. Here are this week’s offerings (thus far): Walter Scott – Discourse on the Holy Spirit (shows Calvinistic “direct operation of […]
New file available for e-Sword and in pdf format as well. David King (19th century British preacher)’s book: the Resurrection of Saints and Sinners at the Lord’s Coming. This book was primarily written to show the fallacy of premillennialism. For the pdf version, go to www.GravelHillchurchofChrist.com and click on ebooks. For the e-Sword version, click […]
Your help here would be greatly appreciated. For a friend (really).
Suggest Christian Internet ministries to be highlighted in a news report.
I hope you will visit and support the new website, For Christian Girls. Their mission is that young women in the church can receive teaching, encouragement and a forum for their special needs. I am looking forward to being a small part of this work. My first article is up and entitled, Women are Treasures. […]
It seems to be a work in progress, but I would like to mention HTH’s Bible site at this link. For now one can search the KJV and ASV, but they hope to have new versions coming online. The idea is to provide a Bible site for NT Christians who, for now, have to go […]
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6 I think that pretty much sums things up today. There was a […]
I don’t have much to add to what has already been said. Weylan’s Deaver’s words resonate with me. What is the state of the brotherhood? Fractured. The faithful are gaining ground for God. The faithless are giving up God’s ground. The factious are fighting over ground God doesn’t even want. Our congregation is growing and […]
There is much that is good, much that needs repentance, and much that needs help. I am well aware of the progressives who are fast moving to evangelical fluff. And I am well aware of the neo-antis who seem stuck in traditions of their own making and trying to enforce them on everyone else. These […]

What is the State of the Brotherhood? It’s in a state better than our country is in – but not much better. Just as in government, we have “liberals” in the church that continue to present various teachings, not in accord with the New Testament. There are churches of Christ who so want to be […]
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Members of Congress, the Cabinet, the honorable Justices of the Supreme Court, the Joint Chiefs, honored guests, ladies and gentlemen. The state of our brotherhood in Christ is exactly how Jesus described it in Matthew 13:24ff. There are the members who are like the good crop sown into the field, and […]
