Dear beloved brother, Greetings in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. My name is SAGANTY LAZARUS, working as a Preacher in Surya nagar colony church of Christ, Old-alwal,sec-bad, A.P., INDIA. ... I have seen some details of your magazine Gospel gazette on INTERNET and studied some of the articles and I really amazed to see how strictly your articles abide with the Truth of the Word and it encouraged me a lot to send this mail to you. Some of your articles are wonderful and topics are scriptural. Iam really thankful to God for your hard work in Gospel.

I want to thank you for the excellent article entitled "How could it happen?" that you wrote in the current Gospel Gazette. You have expressed the opinion of many (if not all) of the members of our congregation here at the Mt. View Ave. Church of Christ in San Bernardino, CA. I will not go into any discussion on the subject other than to say that I agree and hope that with the prayers of all the saints that people will start taking God and His word more seriously. Thanks again and please keep the program going. I have used some of your articles as mini-sermons. Good luck and may God bless your efforts. Sincerely, yours in Christ, Leland J. Wolf

Dear Bro Rushmore, I am so grateful to God, like the rest, for your exhaustive information on the Word of God. The reason why your works stand out from the rest is because of your continual and persistent references to the Bible in their explanations. This shows how much you revered and how well you handled God's Word, using the Bible, which is the inspiration of God, as the only authority, making sure there is no deviation from His Word. I would be downloading some articles for group discussions. Thank you! ~ Li, Church of Christ, Singapore

Brother, In the September 2002 issue you addressed a question on "Eating in the Church Building." You answered the question very well.

We are going to have a 10' outside booth at the Ancaster Fair, Sept. 20, 21, 22, 2002. ... A number of our members will share their time at the booth. We intend to have Bible tracts available, perhaps a Bible Quiz, and I think it would be great to have the GGO business cards available.  Our planning committee is to meet this coming Wednesday to put some of our ideas together. I do know the GGO business cards will be a good item for the public. The Ancaster Fair is drawing on a population of approximately 500,000 persons. I suppose the crowds should reach 10,000 daily. Ancaster is in the South = West corner of metropolitan Hamilton. Since it is a Fair, there will be plenty of Craft Tables, food displays and some farm displays. 500 GGO business cards and bookmarks should suffice. We will also be offering Bible tracts and Bible correspondence courses (John M. Hurt). Our booth will have a male and female person behind our 10' X 4' table to talk with people, answer questions and prayerfully sow the Seed of Truth. Thank you very much for allowing us to share your excellent web site with others. In Him, Ed  Van Alstine, Hamilton, ON

Dear brother Rushmore, My husband is Gary McDade, the minister for the Getwell church of Christ in Memphis, TN. We were going through our mail last night and I read an article you wrote entitled "The Crucifix." It was so well written. I have been amazed at the ignorance in regard to this subject among members of the church in recent years. Do you mind if your article is reprinted in bulletins . . . because I'd like to recommend it. When I have more time I plan on getting on your gospelgazette.com site and reading more of your material. You are an excellent writer. ~ Sheila McDade

Bro. Rushmore, I've been enjoying your publication for the past several months and have really liked the style of teaching that I find in the articles of the Gospel Gazette. ~ Marvin Towell

Brother Rushmore, Thank you very much for your reply.  Your explanation of 1 Cor. 11:22,34 is very well stated.  I had already reached some of the same conclusions that you have, but it is always good to hear the views of someone else for clarification.  Also, the historical information regarding the erection of edifices will be of great help. Keep up your good work.  May God bless. ~ Bruce Stulting

Brother Louis, Thanks for taking the time to teach me further. Your answer is a great help. Your friend in Christ, David M. Franklin, Greenwood, MS

I personally believe that if there is a god, whether Christian or not, he would be above the differences. I think that he would even accept athiests into heaven, as long as they have been good people. Ofter religious people take for granted the fact that beeing a good person takes affect on whether or not you go to heaven. I see no reason for god to punish me in any way if I have not sinned. So what if I do not believe in him? Isn't that somewhat self centered? My theory of god, is that if he does exist, hes image of you rests upon you as a person, rather than your religious beliefs. By the way, you are a fine writer. Joe Kramer-Miller

Brother Rushmore: Your answer to the question, "What is the cup?" is very good. The scripture is very clear in showing what the cup refers to. You have done an excellent job responding to this question. You have a very good web site. It is good to see this technology being used to glorify God. May God bless you all in your labors.  Thank you. In Christian fellowship, Richard Parsons

Bro. Rushmore, I would like to order your book entitled Beverage Alcohol. ... I would also like to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the articles I have read on this website. They have served as great comfort to me in times of destress when it seems that so many within the church are falling prey to liberial trains of thought concerning the Scriptures. I have found the articles I have read thus far to be extremely sound and wholeheartedly agree with your answer to a previous email I sent you concerning the use of comtemporary Christian music and acts of worship at times other than the Lord's Day. I would also like to inquire as to your availability to hold Gospel Meetings. ... Keep up the great work and may God bless you in his service! ~ Rayford Henderson, Fort Payne, AL

Dear Brother Rushmore, I just finished reading "Biblical Companions:  Geography, Archaeology & Sacred History".  I found it to be very informative and some of the secular texts that have been found do shed some light on some portions of Scripture. I plan to recommend this book to some friends. I am interested in archaeology as it relates to Scripture. If you produce any other material on this subject or have any recommendations, please let me know. I attend Hatlers' Chapel church of Christ near Dresden TN. If you're ever in our area, feel free to look us up. Sincerely, Teresa Rachels

Good Afternoon, I writing to you for permission to include a copy of you web page " School Daze" by Elizabeth Robinson in a letter I am getting together for the politicians in my state, then a copy to the "White House".  This letter says everything that is in my heart. I too want the Bible back in the schools. I have three grandsons that I worry about daily. Although they are in there teens, and ready to go to college I worry all the time. You see I work for a college and I see and here what is going on and I must say I do not like it. I have two sons that were raised as christians, and in turn they raised there children the same way. I thank God Daily for his being there for all of us. I truly believe that if the Bible was in the classrooms we would not have the trouble we do today. So much sex and violence is in the schools today, we as a nation must do something to change this. Thank you for any help you and give me May God Be With You All ~ Gloria Sunday

Dear Brother, your answer to the question about the use of individual cups or a cup in the distribution of the fruit of the vine was one of the worst I've seen in sometime. ~ Randy Blankenship

Your explanation of the difference between miracles and providence was helpful for me. I considered your lecture one of the finest out of the many fine presentations there were this last year. What a feast we had. ~ Charles Morgan III

thank you for the truth ~ Shane Coleman

I really enjoy the Gospel Gazzete

Dear Bro. Rushmore, Please put me on your subscription list.  I'm the preacher at the Deer church of Christ in Deer, Ark.  A brother here sent me a copy of your gazette on my computer. I enjoyed reading the articles. I enjoyed the pure unadulterated truth being taught the most. It seems that this day and age it is so hard to find the truth, when it ain't watered down to some kind a wishy-washy, death bringing mess! ... Keep up the good work and may God continue to bless you in this work!!! In Christian love, Kelly Woods

I want to your gazzette ~ kwasi Boateng, Australia

I enjoy reading the ggo. I find the articles to be very uplifting. ... Keep up the good work! Sincerely, Steve Preston, Forest Park church of Christ, Forest Park, GA

Thank you for the site. I took some of the Lessons and use your Links. I am a member of the Church of Christ. WC CHILTON

Hi, how are you? I believe having baptism as part of a "formula" for salvation is heresy. I'm not going to enter into argument with you about this as this does not serve the Lord's purposes, I believe, but only He can show people who hold to such positions that they are wrong.  I've read the term "Campbellites" in Bob Ross and I think it's an apropos description. If you're offended with it, I'd think that's right in the Lord that you are. I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't write me back arguing. Thanks! Also, do you have an e-mail address for Bobby Crenshaw? Thank you. Kind regards ~ Cheryl Dee, Australia

Well after reading many of your articles I finally found you on the net. I appreciate so much your strong yet kind stand for the truth. ~ Joseph D. Chase

I dont know what we would do if not for folks like yall who are devoted to helping people understand the true teachings of the Holy Word. I have always enjoy your teaching in the lectureship books that I have read that includes you. I did not know until this week that you had a website. I have been missing out on a lot.  I went to my search engine and pull up your site and thanks to the good Lord for all your efforts. I hope you dont mind if I copy some of those articles cause I like to used them when trying to make a point. Keep up the good work and may God bless you and all that have a part in your work. ~                                       al lawson

Dear Bro. Rushmore,     In a time when the world strives for materialism and humanism, and even some churches of Christ turn from the truth to please men, you put out a publication of teaching in Spirit and Truth.

Greetings Bro. Rushmore: I want to express to you my appreciation for your labor of love for the cause of spreading the borders of the kingdom of God. I have just read over many of the entries that are available to all and find it a wealth of teaching there in.. for those of us to try to do like wise, in our daily living and service to our Maker..My family and I worship with the Aubrey church of Christ in Aubrey, Arkansas.... a small , but very sound congregation. You may recall it from your days spent in Memphis several years ago.. but on to the point of my letter to you.. tho, we be small , we love the truth and it is so great to see that you are doing all that you can to lead others to Christ and for those like ourselves, to strengthen us in our efforts at the local level.. My prayer is for you to have many more years in His service... Your sister in Christ... Martha D.Manley. p.s. Please notify us when you have new issues.

Dear Mr. Rushmore, Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my inqiury concerning Easter, the rabbit, and the Bible. It was very enlightning and I plan to talk with my friend about it. How did man ever get so crazy? And to hear these "preachers" on TV trying to answer questions from well meaning listeners without reference to what the scripture says is so discouraging. Thanks again for your comments.I enjoy your articles! In Christian Love, Bill King

Greetings, I would like to take a moment to tell you what an excellent site you have here and I pray that the bleesings of God will be fruitful in your efforts. I thought you would be excited to know that your site was mentioned to me and about ninety others by an instructor at Nashville School of Preaching. As a former student of Tn. Bible College, I know that this site must have impressed a great deal of enthusiasm in the mind of this Brother, or it would have never been mentioned in a public forum as it was. You are doing a great work here. Strive to keep it sound in doctrine. This is the responsibility given to us as Christians with this great medium to use at our disposal.

Right now I want to thank you for your work and for sharing your learning. It's a great help! Yours, James Ping, Houston, TX

Dear Louis: I have recently stumbled upon your Bible teachings at Bible-InfoNet. I was looking for bible study guides on Wisdom Literature (Job through Song of Solomon) and the Beatitudes. I was born and raised in Memphis and didn't know there was a College of Preaching there. Of course, I was raised Catholic and only recently (1/28/99!) converted to Church of Christ. I even went to Wheeling College for my freshman year. Too many questions and saw too many strange things there to keep the Catholic faith. How near to the prison is the college in Moundsville? And what about the Hare Krishna temple? We were strongly urged to avoid visiting it, and to never go there alone! I am slowly absorbing God's word and see changes in my life. Maybe I'll share my story some other time. Right now I want to thank you for your work and for sharing your learning. It's a great help! Yours, James Ping, Houston, TX

Hey Louis, great page. ~ Timothy Wilkes, Sr.

The letter I'm forwarding is from . . . my brother-in-law. I don't know if he and his wife go to services anywhere. I think they used to go to the Baptist Church. Many doors are opening. Keep up the good work! ~ Barb

Your web publication has been added to the directory of Web Magazines in the Old Paths Network. May the Lord bless your endeavor. ~ Roy Davison

The ad looks great! I am so thankful that I was able to add the information about the VBS curriculum and that you could insert the Web site. I clicked on it, and it went right to my web site. I would like to have the same ad run for the month of April, also. Then I may write a more general ad for May. I am very happy to see that brother McWhorter will be working with you. It is good to see the names of faithful brethren such as Wayne Jackson writing articles for your publication. Everything looks great. Keep up the good work. I'm working on the article we discussed, and will be sending it to you soon. Thanks again! ~ Barbara Hanna

Louis, Thank you for putting on the Gospel Gazette that I was looking for another job, I hope that will help. You have a good thing going with the Gospel Gazette, keep up the good work. Thanks, Justin Odom

Dear Mr. Rushmore: My name is Bill King and my wife and I are members of the Cambridge Christ of Christ. While surfing the net for Church of Christ "Bible Topics" I found your articles very interesting and educational. I especially liked "The First Church" and gave it to a friend. In Christian Love, Bill R. King

What a great work! Thanks for your efforts. ~ Tom Thomas, Preacher, Spencer County Church of Christ, Rockport, In 47635

Dear brother Rushmore, Knowing that writers often do not get the kind of immediate feedback which comes to a speaker, I thought you might be interested in some feedback re: the Gospel Gazette. I forwarded the URL to my cousin who lives and worships in Zanesville, OH, and is a counselor at Zanesville High School. She in turn pointed it out to her boss. Here is her summary of what happened then: "We enjoyed your article in the Gospel Gazette. As a matter of fact, my boss discovered the articles you could download and printed enough articles to use up a ream of paper. She goes to the Wings of Hope Tabernacle which is an all black congregation. I don't think they have any particular denominational ties. She also requests I bring her my weekly copy of Gospel Minutes. She uses them to teach her Sunday School class." Truly, the printed word has potential for great things. Again, just thought you would be interested in knowing that your work is reaching people. In Him, David Anguish

Dear Brethren: The Old Paths page listed the Gospel Gazette among its list of publications, so we took a look at it. Congratulations on its set-up. . . . May the Lord bless your efforts to build up Christ's church. After Him, Randal Matheny, Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil

Why do you skirt the issue? Each and every article I read was full of scripture, plenty of scripture but never was a conclusion drawn. Is that to avoid conflict? So, as you can see sometimes people ,after reading an article, have more questions. If I were to have ended at the period after questions you would be left scratching your head asking, "What was the point?" That is my point, what is the point? I feel like I've waded through the rough only to miss the treasure. I'm sure there must be a reason for the softshoe of avoiding a stong conclusion. It would possibly make someone mad. Fact is and you failed to mention --some of those gods are onto the real God. Some of those gods are no more than false religions. To lump Baptists, Mormons and an endless group together without explaining what makes one a real God and one a false god is a real trap for the individual who is truly seeking God and falls into your trap. Point: Some religions have individuals in their ranks who know the living God. Some religions are false and none of their followers have a chance of finding God. Failing to make that clear could give those chasing after a false god a false sense of security. Truth is, to lump the real with the unreal and not make it clear to the unsuspecting reader that such a difference can be either heaven or hell is frightening. ~ Steve Jarrell

Just got your premiere issue of the The Gospel Gazette and I believe it is a start of a great Website for those of us that are always looking for the truth. Thank you very much for a great begining. ~ Paul Sanchez

. . . I am a member of the church in Warren, PA. I would like permission to use your articles from time to time to publish in the bulletin at our congregation. Thanks for your efforts in putting this publication online!! ~ In His Service, Bob Gross

Thank you for your www site. I will be back ASAP. I did refer you to the webmaster of . . . for consideration of a link site. I do not know if he has had time to get to you, but I feel he will. As you must have noticed, if you went to the site for COMBE, I am a Baptist. ~ Chester

Brother Rushmore, You and the Staff have given the brotherhood a wonderful new tool by which to grow and with which to fight the good fight of faith. Your hard work is very much appreciated. Thank you, ~ Dean Gittings

Dear brother Rushmore, Let me commend your excellent work on "Gospel Gazette." I have benefitted from it, and have emailed many brethren about it. We need good, sound, faithful materials to strenthen the brethren on-line, and to suggest to non-Christian friends to peruse on-line. Your work will accomplish mush good for the kingdom, I believe. I preach for the Lord's church in Shreveport, LA at the Sunset church of Christ. Perhaps I can contribute something for your publication sometime. I have also appreciated your reproducible materials, and have found them useful in my labors. Again, let me congratulate you on your successful publication. I hope it will be another tool in the hand of the Lord to disseminate the Gospel, and defeat the "doctrines of demons." Yours in Christ, Darwin Hunter

I really enjoy reading the articles in the Gazette. Keep up the good work and God bless you as you strive for excellence as well as soundness in presenting the truth of God's word. Basil Overton is an old friend and beloved teacher, well respected for his stand on the truth. In Him, Earl Weldon

The new Gospel Gazette looks like it will be a fine source of sound teaching. I plan to visit often. May God bless your efforts to teach the truth. ~ Eddie Parrish, Odessa, Texas

Louis, I sure do miss your skills at debunking the errant and pointing readers to the truth on matters that you so frequently used on the Firm Foundation. Its not the same without you and Brother Dobbs must have his hands full looking for your replacement. I have been reading the Gospel Gazette and am very impressed. I have not been able to read all the articles yet, but I have read Parts 1 and 2 of Allen Webster's "A Trail of Grief And A Trail of Tears." In fact I have printed it out so I can study it further. I will be leading the thoughts at the Lord's table this month and plan to use some of the thoughts Brother Webster brought out as a basis of my comments. Louis, you and your contributors keep up the good work. Your brother, Gary Hall

Bro Rushmore, it is good to see something fresh on the Net. I believe this will help us all. Thanks, Glen Gannon

Dear Louis, I have visited your web page for the first time today. You are doing an excellent job. May God continue to bless you in your efforts. Would you mind if I put in a link for my congregation's home page to yours? Yours in Christ, Glen Tattersall

It looks fantastic! Keep it up. Told all my friends about it. ~ Harold Driskell

A news item regarding the "Gospel Gazette Online" is on the "National News" page (4) under "Ohio" of the February issue of "The Christian Chronicle." If you have not yet received your February print issue by mail, you can preview the article at our new web-site at: https://christianchronicle.org/p04_national.htm. May God richly bless you and your efforts to tell the Good News of Jesus Christ on the web! ~ Ken Green, The Christian Chronicle, Oklahoma City, OK, ccweb@oc.edu

Brother Rushmore, I always enjoyed your forum on the Firm Foundation site, and am excited about the Gospel Gazzette. The first issue is outstanding! May God continue to bless your efforts in His kingdom. Your brother, B. Michael Jones

Bro. Rushmore: Greetings in Christ! Many thanks for making available - all in one place - these excellent and hard-to-find restoration reprints! . . . Also, I appreciate VERY MUCH your article entitled "Notes on Benevolence as it Relates to the Church." This is a really good supplement to Thomas B. Warren's "Lectures on Church Cooperation and Orphan's Homes," which I am currently reading. . . . Again, thank you for your web page! Cheers! In Christ, Maj. Stan A. Stockton

Just wanted to inform you that I have spent the past 2 hours perusing the pages and other features of this Website. I am even more impressed than by the short visit I made when it first appeared. I trust that the interest and support will be forthcoming that it will become a PERMANENT feature in the electronic ministry. ~ James H. Brown

Just wanted you to know that one of the articles in GG served as our "devotional" last Wed. eve. (we have a short devotional in the auditorium after classes dismiss).  One of our deacons (who was responsible for the devo. that evening) found you online & copied the article by Furman Kearley.  Thanks for making good material available! ~ Joe Slater
