In the January 1991 issue I reviewed two books by Robert Tibbs Maxey, Jr. At the time I did not know from whom the books could be ordered nor the cost. The books are Alexander Campbell and the Peculiar Institution (slavery), $12.95; and One Wide River, $4.00. They may be ordered from Maxey Press, 7970 Den-woody, Oxford, OH 45056.

FREE TO CHANGE is the title of Cecil Hook's latest book. $5 per copy. Order from Cecil at 1350 Huisache, New Braunfels, TX 78130. I have not seen the book but am sure it is worth reading.

1991 Version of Jeremiah 5:30-31: "An appealing and horrible thing has happened in the land: (1) the preacher (clergy) prophesy (teach) falsely, and the Eldership rules the church members on their own authority; and (3) My people love to have it so! But what will you do at the end of it?"

QUOTE: "Maybe we're confused about unity because we've been seeking institutional unity. That's not what Jesus prayed for." - Rubel Shelley at Restoration Forum VIII. Rubel is right. Institutional unity is impossible and utter folly. Jesus did not establish or setup a religious institution of any kind. All religious institutions, denominations, are the works of men, and they are divisive. Jesus did not give His life for some institution or organization. He died for you and me; persons, not churches or denominations. Remember: the word "church" should NOT be in the Scriptures; it does NOT translate the Greek word ekklesia. It is in The Scripture only because King James of England, who was the Head of the Church of England, ordered it put in his translation. Since we live in a multiple "church world", most other translations have perpetuated this terrible deception. A church is a religious institution and there is no religious institution revealed in the New Covenant Scriptures! This is a reality that the "church people" refuse to accept.

DID GOD DO IT? A brother in Oklahoma wrote to tell me the way he learned of THE EXAMINER. The postman accidentally put his neighbor's paper in his P.O. Box! And he is really glad for the mistake. Did God "provide" for that mistake so this brother could learn of the paper?

RELIGIOUS'? My cousin-in-law told me that his ancestors had to leave England for stealing sheep. They went to Holland, but had to leave for practicing their religion. So they came to America, where they could steal sheep and practice their religion simultaneously. - Sarah M. Watson
