Dr John W. Rawlings gave this message at a Men’s Prayer Breakfast at ‘Friendship Baptist Church’ of Cincinnati, Ohio
On April 18, 2009, Dr John W. Rawlings gave this message at a Men’s Prayer Breakfast at ‘Friendship Baptist Church’ of Cincinnati, Ohio. Rawlings then was 95 years of age. He passed away two weeks ago (January 30, 2013 ) at the age of 99.
I loved how he said he didn’t allow the world to affect him. He said, “In that environment, it did not dictate to me. I dictated to the environment.” We’re losing the solid men that didn’t change their sermons and doctrines to conform to the political or cultural climate (Romans 12:1-2.)
His illustration of how his daddy protected their sheep with a shotgun, is how a ‘healthy’ church will protect their sheep today. Rebuke, and expose the wolves. Then kick them out.
Thank You Lord for this man. Dr John W. Rawlings, January 29, 1914 to January 30, 2013. Below is an excerpt from his message.
