    Does anyone here know what happened to Don Jasmin of the Fundamentalist Digest? I used to read his articles in the Sword of the Lord. He seemed to just fall off the face of the earth. Recently I was trying to find some of his books, but his old website domain has been purchased by a Chinese individual. There is no publicized obituary that I can find, but I also have not been able to find any Internet updates on him that are more recent than 2016. He is only eighty-five years old. It would be unlikely that he simply died of old age when he was so active for so long, and one would think that a major health crisis would be reported.

    If anybody knows where he is or how to contact him, please let me know. There has to be a way to purchase his books still.

    I last saw him and spoke to him several years ago at a Sword of the Lord conference in Winston-Salem. I used to receive his Fundamentalist Digest, but that was over ten years ago.

    Thank you for the link, 1689Dave. I contacted the folks at Tabernacle Baptist Missions (TBMI) to see if they could put me in contact with Dr. Jasmin. Waiting on a response now.

    One thing that has always puzzled me is how certain ministers seem to "disappear" with age. Men like Jack Hyles will always be remembered, for better or for worse, while people like Don Jasmin fall off the map when they are still relatively young.

    Douglas MacArthur was right: "Old generals never die. They just fade away."

    I do know he had major back surgeries years ago. We don’t know the pain this man has been in for years.

    One sent an email to my church a couple years ago to "get in touch" with ME. They had heard a "tape" of me in some ACE education conferences in 1987 (that gives you an idea how up-to-date they were) and wanted to know if I were still alive.

    Did think about saying something along the line of dementia or illness or terminal, but risked answering with the church website and sermons etc. Never heard back from them!! Maybe THEY had illness or dementia or terminal/

    So, I allow for illness or life-changes for men to "drop out" of the conscious sight of many. And reappear or not.

    BTW, if Don is spokesman for KJVonly sect, why would anyone care if he dropped off the radar? ;)

    Oh, my. If you made comments like that around my old pastor, his head would explode. "Brother, there is NOTHING but KJVOnly if you truly believe in the purity of God's Word. All other translations are PERversions!!!"

    Judging by your comment, though, you must have been educated (if you were educated in IFB circles) at Maranatha, Pillsbury, or Faith. My guess is one of the first two.

    Proud to be linked to the first two. BA/MA from Maranatha Baptist University; Professor of Practical Theology and Education at Pillsbury.

    I consider KJVonly sect as an attack on the doctrine of inspiration and not trivial. Some hold to a simple preference and that is their, ah, "preference". But I have gone toe to toe with people who say unless a person was saved using the KJV (whichever of the 100 different editions they think is the inspired one) they cannot be saved. Hyles, Ruckman take it even further.

    So, they blaspheme the God Who saved me using the ASV1901. The BB, of which I'm a founding member, opted years ago NOT to allow the casual use of "heresy" in our debates. Thus it is not seen in BB discussions of a number of doctrinal differences among Baptists. But schismatic and sect are used by many, including me, of those promoting this sad teaching.

    As a KJV advocate I agree with your assessment. I am anti KJVonlyism. But I am also anti most of the modern version changes.
