The Truth of the Matter

Index

Divided into fifteen sets of six pieces each and one of ten, The Truth of the Matter is a series of short, free standing pieces covering essential truths taken from the Bible for use in church publications. The aim of the series is obviously not a full exposition of each subject addressed, but rather to offer an enticement to further study in the hope of achieving a better understanding of the Bible. Each piece may simply be copied, excluding the heading given only for identity purposes,  and pasted into pew sheets, newsletters, bulletins or any other church publication and may be used or passed on as often as required. The numbers in parentheses are the number of words in each  piece. There is no cost involved. Pieces may not be altered and may be repeatedly used or shared provided not for gain.
