Sagging the Floorboards Down!

Last week, my latest book came from the printing company. It is entitled, Preaching the Whole Counsel of God to the Whole World, Vol. 2. It has 303 pages and is comprised of full-sentence outlines about Bible authority. Volume 1 is about the Godhead and is nearly entirely about Jesus Christ. Volume 3 is 312 pages long and chiefly about the church; it is in the hands of my wife Martha and my daughter Rebecca as they proofread it, before final corrections are made and it is released to a printing firm.

I once heard the musician and singer Roy Clark say something to the effect, “I’ve been making music and recording albums a lot longer than most of you realize. They’re back at the house just sagging the floorboards down.” In that sense, I’m somewhat like Roy Clark; I’ve been writing and publishing books a lot longer than most people realize, and they’re back at the house just sagging the floorboards down. Actually, where we now live in Florida, the house sits on a slab and we have ceramic tile. Besides, most of my books are in a warehouse in Mississippi. However, you get the idea.

Our online bookstore features 32 of my books and tracts, which can be viewed at https://0329829.netsolstores.com/rushmorelouis-2.aspx. Hundreds of additional books by other authors, including by my late wife Bonnie and my daughter Rebecca, appear in the same online bookstore for Gospel Gazette Online and World Evangelism. In addition, my books in print plus titles that are not currently in print are available without charge in PDF format at https://www.gospelgazette.com/library/; there are 30 titles at the moment. Moreover, there are 106 editions in PDF format of The Voice of Truth International magazine, also free of charge; two of these have not made it to printed form yet, but they will be published in the months ahead.

It is my privilege to be the Editor of both Gospel Gazette Online and The Voice of Truth International, both of which have exceeded 20 years of continuous publication. Nearly everything that I have ever penned over the last 47 years appears within the pages Gospel Gazette Online and can be accessed in the digital Archive through the onsite search engine or index. Both magazines preserve thousands of articles by dozens of studious Christian men and women. Furthermore, both religious journals are a treasure trove of resource material for Bible classes, sermons, devotionals and bulletin articles. Be sure to visit our monthly magazine Gospel Gazette Online at www.GospelGazette.com. For a subscription to The Voice of Truth International, visit Www.TheVoiceOfTruthInternational.com.

The Written Word

Bonnie Sue Rushmore – October 2014

“But the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you” (1 Peter 1:25 NKJV). In no way comparable to the inspired Word of God, nevertheless the written word of God’s children shares some of the same characteristics. First, whatever biblical literature Christians produce ought to be filled with “sound words” (2 Timothy 1:13) derived from the Word of God—the Gospel.

Second, the written word of God’s servants is durable. Written material is always ready whenever and wherever the reader is ready for it. In some cases, this may be many years (e.g., the Bible itself). In the middle of 2020, a church secretary from Anchorage, Alaska informed me of an article written about “Encouragement” by Bonnie Rushmore, which appeared as parts 1 and 2 in two successive church bulletins. That article by my late wife was published in 2002 in Gospel Gazette Online—13 years before her death and 20 years ago now. Maybe not classified with the Bible character Abel, however, “Bonnie “being dead still speaks” (Hebrews 11:4 NKJV). The written Word and the written word, too, are durable.

Third, the written word of God’s servants travels well. Also in 2020, I received an email from overseas, I presume, in which the writer offered lauds regarding Gospel Gazette Online. He wanted me to know that the magazine was his library from which he draws substance for his television programs, sermons and Bible classes. Alaska or Africa, for instance, are places to which neither Bonnie nor I have ever been, and yet, our writings and those of so many other brothers and sisters in Christ have traveled and continue to travel to places on earth to which we have never been and to which we may never go.

The churches of Christ distribute good Christian literature stateside and especially abroad to a degree nearly unimaginable. The written word can outlast any of us and go more places (simultaneously in different directions) than any of us can. Christian literature, filled with “sound words” (2 Timothy 1:13) derived from the Word of God—the Gospel, is always a wise investment.

Cliff Rushmore

My father, Cliff Rushmore, died this morning at 4:30 a.m. in Pennsylvania. He had been in hospice care for about a week. He will be cremated according to his wishes. No memorial service is scheduled presently due to the nationwide COVID19 crisis, but family will gather at a later date for a memorial service. I’m now the oldest Rushmore who I know, though there are extended family members doubtlessly with whom I am not acquainted.
