thought you might like to know what was happening in this area!
The following invitation and reminder comes from Marc
Gibson, and I am passing it along to you.
There will be two Bible study and discussion meetings in
a row for May and June. They will be held at the Lakeland Hills church building
at 2510 Lakeland Hills Blvd
Lakeland. Times for both meetings will be at
If you need more information, call (863) 688-4336 or (863) 853-5476.
The first meeting will be on Tuesday, May 29th (day
after Memorial Day). Harry Osborne will lead a discussion on "What Is
Biblical 'Putting Away'?" This issue has become very important in
dealing with serious situations in the divorce and remarriage question,
especially in questions about civil divorce proceedings in a society and what
God has authorized in Scripture. Harry has been dealing with the divorce and
remarriage question for many years and has recently had some exchanges on the
topic he will address at this meeting. He will concentrate this study on what
the text of Scripture teaches. This is an important matter to study and discuss,
and it is hoped that as many as possible will come to engage in this study. We
should never tire of, or avoid, opportunities to sharpen our thinking on the
Scriptures on any topic, especially this one that is faced in and out of the
The next meeting will be the following Monday, June 4th.
Ron Halbrook will be in the area and has agreed to be the special guest to speak
and face questions and discussion. Most know that Ron has been widely named and
referenced recently concerning some things that he believes in reference to the
marriage, divorce, remarriage issue and how it may affect fellowship. This
meeting will afford all of us an excellent and convenient opportunity to hear
and question the man himself on his beliefs and motives. It is highly
recommended that if you have heard or read about these matters or have attempted
to represent Ron's positions in any way in discussing divorce or fellowship,
that you attend this meeting. None of us want to be inaccurate in representing
what anyone has to say - here will be an opportunity to learn more
accurately what someone is saying at a time of intense discussion of these
matters. We thank Ron for his openness and willingness to discuss these matters.
Openly searching Bible truth and endeavoring for unity upon that truth can only
bring good among brethren. Agreed??
Hope to see you there both times!! (and pass along the
We absolutely cannot have an open
heart if we refuse to study these matters. If there are brethren who believe
that Harry Osborne and Ron Halbrook are not teaching the Truth on these matters,
we sincerely hope that they will take this opportunity to come and give what
they believe to be a scriptural answer to what these men are teaching. Those
who believe that these men are teaching God's Truth should come and support this
effort and also profit from the study together. We must always be willing
for our own convictions to be examined! Truth has nothing to hide or be
ashamed of. We also should have nothing to hide or be ashamed of in what
we believe and teach. And all of these things should be brought out in the
open to be examined by the light of God's Word, including our own personal
beliefs and convictions on these matters. Please come and participate in
these studies. Directions to the building: Take exit 19 off Interstate 4
