Whose quote is that at the bottom of each page?
I've been asked many times whose quote I use at the bottom of every page on my site that says, "When to seek God has become life and to glorify God has become self, then you have truly found God." The quote is mine. God spoke it to my heart in prayer over 27 years ago while at Bible college. It seems fitting to include on every page because if we could every fully grasp and appy it, it would change our lives forever.

How did The Old Time Gospel ministry begin?
Scripture says, "...ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein..." (Jeremiah 6:16) The church has gone in a direction that is unfamiliar with the old paths. We cannot walk in there way for God said the true way is a way of holiness. "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness..." (Isaiah 35:8) The work my wife and I have done in the ministry has always been in the old time gospel way, the way of truth and holiness. In 1999 we took on the name The Old Time Gospel Ministry and have since sought God for avenues that we can proclaim His ways, this web site which I designed and built in 2004, is just one of those avenues.

READING THE BIBLE
J. C. Ryle
1. READ THE BIBLE WITH AN EARNEST DESIRE TO UNDERSTAND IT.
Do not be content to just read the words of Scripture. Seek to grasp the message they contain.
2. READ THE SCRIPTURES WITH A SIMPLE, CHILDLIKE FAITH AND HUMILITY.
Believe what God reveals. Reason must bow to God's revelation.
3. READ THE WORD WITH A SPIRIT OF OBEDIENCE AND SELF-APPLICATION.
Apply what God says to yourself and obey His will in all things.
4. READ THE HOLY SCRIPTURES EVERY DAY.
We quickly lose the nourishment and strength of yesterday's bread. We must feed our souls daily upon the manna God has given us.
5. READ THE WHOLE BIBLE AND READ IT IN AN ORDERLY WAY.
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable." I know of no better way to read the Bible than to start at the beginning and read straight through to the end, a portion every day, comparing Scripture with Scripture.
6. READ THE WORD OF GOD FAIRLY AND HONESTLY.
As a general rule, any passage of Scripture means what it appears to mean. interpret every passage in this simple manner, in its context.
7. READ THE BIBLE WITH CHRIST CONSTANTLY IN VIEW.
The whole Book is about Him. Look for Him on every page. He is there. If you fail to see Him there, you need to read that page again.
