Do you subscribe to the Sword?
Have you ever subscribed?
No, didnt know it was even still published
No, not even close to the same as when Rice was there. They went down the KJV only path, take parts of sermons out(without saying that they did), etc.
Yes, I have a life time subscription. I could be wrong but I believe it goes back to the John R. Rice days. I don't go along with there KJO deal but I get some good reading out of it at times.
Like Bob, I have a lifetime subscription. It seems a shadow of what it was when Dr. Rice was at the helm, but then I am at a age where everything was better 'back in the day" :tonofbricks:
We used to get it. I lost interest after reading an article/sermon by Jeff Fugate that blasted women for wearing slacks.
Same as others- great periodical when Dr. Rice was in charge, started a downhill slide under Curtis Hutson and has not recovered. I guess they have their niche and I'm not in that niche any more.
Tom, I agree with you on it not being what it was under John R. Rice.
I don't think I agree with you here, Tom. I love central heat and air and you know that indoor plumbing isn't bat either. Taking a bath in a bath tub and not in a wash tub on the back porch isn't bad either. But on so many other things I'm with you.
We had an inside bathtub and a house next door had AC and we had a furnace for heat. But I am thankful for many new things like the internet and cable TV... so i can watch reruns of shows like Andy Griffith and M*A*S*H lol
That was done when Rice was in charge. Notably Spurgeon's sermons in which the latter's Calvinism was excised as much as possible.
