    Smile Hello From Springfield, MO

    Hi, my name is Andy Eppard. I have been on the Puritan Board for a few weeks now and have really been enjoying it. I have been reading threads for a few years now and have appreciated the discussions. I look forward to talking about the deep things of God as well as relative and practical questions.

    Hey, I've got supporting churches down in Springfield, Missouri - there are several churches that preach the doctrines of grace that I would recommend.

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    "To doubt God’s mercy because our faith is feeble, is rather to rely upon our faith than upon the Lord. It is not the excellency and great measure of faith that makes us righteous before God, but Christ whom faith does receive and apprehend: which a weak faith can do as well as the strongest.” - John Ball (Puritan)

    Good to have you here. My husband and I both graduated from Evangel College (University) in the early 90's and have since come over to the "dark side" . We miss McSalty's Pizza and Andy's Frozen Custard! Is Kim's Korean BBQ still around? Mmmmmm. Such memories.

    A church on every corner

    That was my impression of Spgfld when I went to BBC there in the early '70s. I met my wife there. Is Queen City Flour Co. still there? Max Hawkins used to run it. He loaned Puritan books out on the side. It was off limits to BBC students. Go figure.
