If you did not request THE EXAMINER be sent to you, this means that some friend, relative or brother/sister in Christ did so. You will receive three issues of this paper for your review. If you decide you would like to have the paper continue past the trial period, you must send us your request and we will add you to the permanent list. We hope that will be your choice; but if not, you need do nothing because the paper will stop after the third issue. There is no cost or obligation whatever to receive the paper. In this paper we deal with many basic, vital matters pertaining to our relationship with God and His word. Some of these we expose as contrary to God's will and word. We hope that you will be objective in your evaluation of what is presented. THE EXAMINER will challenge you to a deeper and perhaps a more objective study of many religious practices and teachings. Search the Scriptures. Examine everything carefully; hold fast what is good. WELCOME!

Peggy Charren contends that Saturday morning network television has gotten so bad that parents shouldn't let their kids watch it.

In more than 20 years of trying to get better shows for children on TV, she never has told parents to do anything like that.

"The new season is so horrible," the head of Action for Children's Television said, "1 think that's the only thing they can do.

"In the past, I've suggested that parents take a look at what's on, themselves, and then decide what's OK for their kids. Everything's so ghastly now, it's not worth the trouble." - AFA Journal

"TO EMPLOY MEN TO PREACH THE GOSPEL in a Christian congregation is a satire upon that congregation which employs them. It is the duty of every Christian to proclaim the word to those ignorant of it...

"That any man is to be paid for preaching, i.e., for making sermons and pronouncing them; or that any man is to be hired for a stipulated sum to preach and pray, and expound scripture, by the day, month, or year, I believe to be a relic of popery." - Alexander Campbell


In the home, it is kindness; in business, it is honesty; in society, it is courtesy; in work, it is thoroughness; in play, it is fairness; toward the fortunate, it is congratulation; toward the unfortunate, it is compassion; toward the weak, it is help; toward the wicked, it is resistance; toward the strong, it is trust; toward the penitent, it is forgiveness; and toward God, it is reverence and love. Douglas Hyde

DEAR READERS: With so much dissatisfaction regarding the quality of education these days, here's an interesting story from columnist Joey Adams:

A disgruntled schoolteacher handed X-Mozilla-Status: 0009h the following comment: "In our public schools today, the teachers are afraid of the principals, the principals are afraid of the superintendents, the superintendents are afraid of the board, the board members are afraid of the parents, the parents are afraid of the children, and the children are afraid of nobody." Ann Landers
