    If I remember correctly ... His father was a Baptist minister ... and his church affiliation was Scottish Baptist ... during his later years, he "drifted" into Pentacostalism ... especially while he was in Egypt with the YMCA ... his wife took his notes (after his death with appendicitis - he was sick for several days but would not take a hospital bed that was needed for a wounded soldier) ... and had them published ... and now we have them today.

    Hope this helps.

    Born and raised Baptist; was converted following one of Charles Spurgeon's services.

    Was later a minister with the YMCA, back when the "C" still meant something.

    Right, but I highly doubt he was reformed. His writings are very introspective I guess you could say, almost individualistic. Like a super holiness kind of living, without much mention of standard doctrines. I was just curious of what people thought...

    He should have drifted further and healed himself.

    very true. Hey does H.E. still get on here while copy and pasting pages and pages of documents nobody reads?

    I haven't been on for a couple months...

    He lurks in the "english/greek" thread. I've learned to leave him be, letting him fight his windmills.


    Dude, you wouldn't believe how testy people get when you ask them where their desire for God came from, considering so few have one.

    Oh I hear you. Well, to admit to that principle they must admit to much of what they don't want to believe. The same person [God] who gave them physical life also gave them spiritual life...

    Keep it up.
