Tradition, Scripture, and the Church by David Bolton (PDF – complete)

My friend, Sándor, has compiled my five-part teaching series, “Tradition, Scripture, and the Church”, into a single PDF booklet, and has uploaded it on his Hungarian/English blog, keskeny út – narrow way.  Of all the series I’ve written, I believe that this one in particular is the most substantial, ground-breaking, and potentially “eye-opening” to the true nature of the Church, past, present, and future.  (As one commenter said in response to my original posting, “I was deeply and personally challenged by your words, and maybe for the first time saw things in crystal-clear focus, where previously the image was somewhat blurred – almost like someone who has received new spectacles!“)  That is my hope for all who read this teaching.  Please check out Sándor’s blog, and follow the link to the (English) PDF at the bottom of his post.  (The link to the Hungarian PDF is at the top.)

God bless you! -David

A hagyomány, a Szentírás és a Gyülekezet – David Bolton

“With anticipation, and not a little trepidation, I am wading into a subject that I believe cannot be over-emphasized as to its significance regarding the Church, past, present and future.

  1. David,

    Thank you very much for sharing this. It answers so many questions for me especially under, “The Futile Way and the Fruitful Way” as I’ve wondered again and again why many genuine attempts at restoration seem to end in failure. I am still digesting the implications of this rich material.
    God bless you and your ministry to the Church.,

      Thank you, dear brother. I’m glad this has been helpful to you in the way you’ve expressed. That matter has been a long-time question of mine as well. I commend you for making your way through the full series, as there’s quite a lot to digest there. I pray it will continue to feed your spirit and soul as you meditate on it further. Blessings to you and your family in Kenya! Glad we’ve connected in Christ!
