Welcome to the 40th Issue!
Welcome to the 40th (!) issue of Expository Files! Warren and I hope you find the contents of this issue helpful. Our purpose in publishing Expository Files is to make use of this medium to proclaim the gospel of Christ. Our loyalty is to Him, and our creed is His word. We seek to keep our teaching Biblically centered and sound. We have no axe to grind, no hidden agenda and no ulterior motive. We are not in the business of defending or protecting religious creeds and/or opinions of human origin. Any human creed books we own are for reference only, we like to keep up on what others accept as their doctrines, but we do not refer to them for our own beliefs and practices, be it a denominational manual, catechism or discipline. For our authority we go to the Bible. Is so much easier that way. Human creeds change every year. The New Covenant of Jesus Christ is the same as it was when first delivered back in the first century.
We hope you see the wisdom in this course we have chosen. We believe it to be Christ-honoring. It is He who has all authority in His church (Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22,23). His doctrine is true, and to go beyond it is to deny Him (2 John 9). We also believe that the Scriptures are adequate for our spiritual needs (2 Timothy 3:16,17). We believe that His gospel is powerful to save souls and that we have absolutely no business altering it in any way (Romans 1:16; Galatians 1:6-9).
Thanks for reading. We hope that you will find things herein that will cause you to desire to read the next issue as well, and if you are new to Expository Files, to seek out past issues. May God bless you
