Regarding "A history of William Sowders' ministry"

I did not write the following document; however, I have published it on this website (with the permission of the author) in order to familiarize people with the life of William Sowders, who was Lloyd Goodwin's mentor.

I did not know William Sowders. He died before I was born. Therefore, at this time I personally have no opinion on his character and nature.

It's important to note that Lloyd Goodwin taught (and his ministers still teach) that Goodwin was a "true" follower of Sowders, and that all the other Gospel Assembly Churches were not. In fact, he always described any church that came from Sowders' ministry --but that was not part of the Goodwin organization-- as the "old body."

However, it seems to me that if the following history is accurate, then William Sowders would have not agreed with the practices of Lloyd Goodwin.

For a different viewpoint on William Sowders, read Wayne Hamburger's book, Yoke of Bondage.

All who read these words are invited to make your opinion known on the message board of this website.
