The Ordinances of the Bible


James L. Fleming 1904

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


From the Preface: "The ordinances of the Bible are recorded in both the Old and New Testaments. But through the influence of false teachers, and the improper understanding of the teaching of the Word, many have been led into a wrong belief, insomuch that some altogether discard the ordinances of the New Testament, believing that all ordinances were nailed to the cross and ceased at the death of Christ. While others observe some of the ordinances, as the commandments of Christ, they reject others of them."

"It is the aim in this little volume to present the Word of God on the subject, that the reader may readily discriminate between the Jewish ordinances and those of the gospel. And that he may know which ordinances have ceased, and which are yet in vogue."—E. E. Byrum
