Campbell-Rice Debate – 1843

Finally! We get started! Brian Elliott and I, David Griffin, have been planning for several months now. With many delays (equipment issues, COVID issues, family issues) out of the way, we’re happy to post the first 4 speeches delivered by Alexander Campbell (left) and Nathan L. Rice (right) from the famous Campbell-Rice Debate of 1843. We have taken on a huge project of several months! Hope you can be patient and Hope you enjoy!

Campbell-Rice Debate

Grace, Graces, State of Grace, McGarvey, 1864

This is one of those pieces I always say I wish I could have come up with! McGarvey compares the varied use of the word “Grace” in the Westminster Confession of Faith, with the way the word is used in the Scriptures. Although written 150 years ago, this article is still as applicable today as ever. Just listen to the preaching on popular “Christian Radio” and you’ll see the point!

Graces, Graces, State of Grace

Chapter 3 of Reminiscences…

Oops! Forgot to add the link!

Well, it has been too long since I last posted here. I intend to be a little more prompt in the future!

In April 1829, Alexander Campbell (left) debated the skeptic and socialist Robert Owen (right) in Cincinnati, OH on the evidences of Christianity. Campbell was forty-one years old at the time. A young twenty-one year old Nathan J. Mitchell and his older brother James made a trip on horseback from Belmont county Ohio to Cincinnati to attend the great debate between Campbell and Owen. In chapter 3 of his “Reminiscences,” Nathan relates a thrilling account of this trip, including many stories of impromptu gospel “meetings” he and his brother held along the way to the debate. This is part 1 of chapter 3; part 2 will follow.

Chapter 2 of Reminiscences…

In chapter 2 of his autobiography, Nathan J. Mitchell relates the story of his conversion to the ancient gospel and his earliest travels and efforts to preach. It is not only an exciting story of the times in which he lived, but also a demonstration of the effect the gospel of Christ had in his life and the lives of many others in the early 1800s.
