Holding fast the Sound words (SW)

(II Tim.1:13 cp. Tit.1:9; Jude 3) A publication for church members

Church of Christ (Rom. 16:16) Mission USA

Reaching the world with the Word of God.

Always seek the will of the Lord.

God is always within your reach.

Searching for the truth according to God's Word.

The Truth May Be:
  • Rejected and thus reject Jesus and salvation (John 12:48).
  • Not believed (2 Thess. 2:12).
  • Evil spoken of (2 Peter 2:2).
  • Turned from (Titus 1:14; James 5:19).
  • Not loved (2 Thess. 2:10).
  • Never known because of lack of love and desire (2 Tim. 3:7).
  • Not obeyed (Gal. 5:7).

Or the opposite of all the above could be true for you. 

The choice is yours!

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).  Read verse 31.
  • “Teach me thy way…; I will walk in thy truth:” Psa. 86:11 “…his truth shall be thy shield and buckler” (Psa. 91:4). 
  • Please think about it.  –Perry Sexton
