Special Note By the Editor (T. Austin-Sparks)
It has always been our desire to make the ministry through this
little medium available to all of the Lord's people; not
regarding it as our personal property. "Freely ye have received,
freely give" has been our principle.
Where we have felt we could do so we have granted, on request,
permission to reproduce messages in other magazines. But we have
come up against a difficulty, and are finding ourselves being
seriously misunderstood by some of our friends. The messages have
been embodied in magazines which have a particular 'ism' which is of
doubtful rightness, and sometimes, harmful influence.
We just want to say to all of our readers that while those who use
these messages usually do so in sincerity and because they feel
their spiritual value, it must not be concluded that we accept the
particular teaching which these dear people propagate. In some cases
we would strongly repudiate the interpretation. In some cases we
have had to request that our name should not be associated with
If you have any doubts, you can let us know, and we will do our best
to answer any enquiry.
