John R. Rice (1895 - 1980)

Listen to freely downloadable audio sermons by the speaker John R. Rice in mp3 format. Was a Baptist evangelist and pastor and the founding editor of The Sword of the Lord, an influential fundamentalist newspaper. Rice believed that the mission of churches was "not to take care of Christians" but to "win souls," a notion his mostly lower-middle-class church members did not wholeheartedly endorse. When Rice spent more time away from his pulpit to hold revivals elsewhere, a supply pastor and his supporters staged a coup. Rice decided to reenter evangelism. Yet before he did so, he encouraged the church to change its name from Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle to Galilean Baptist Church, thus distinguishing his ministry and that of the church from J. Frank Norris.

In 1934, Rice founded The Sword of the Lord, a bi-weekly publication that grew into an influential fundamentalist Baptist newspaper. At first it was simply the publication of his Dallas church, handed out on the street and delivered door-to-door by Rice's daughters and other Sunday School children. The Sword's circulation grew dramatically. It was thirty thousand in 1940, fifty thousand in 1946, and ninety thousand in 1953, surpassing the circulation of the venerable Moody Monthly. Rice regularly published reports from evangelistic campaigns that became valuable publicity tools for approved revivalists. In 1946, he and other prominent evangelists adopted a code of ethics and a statement of faith to prevent "evangelists from being unduly criticized for commercialism and unethical practices." The same year Bob Jones College conferred on him an honorary Litt. D. degree.

 Paul Rejoices Over Preaching by Enemies by John R. Rice

Topic:
Description: "I'm saying it's so easy for us to get that way about it. We get so busy separating from good Christians we never mind about the devil's crowd. . . . no time to call old sinners to repentance and get drunkards and harlots and infidels saved. We're busy 'defending the faith,' you know. With Paul the furtherance of the gospel is the main thing."

 When Skeletons Come Out of Closets by John R. Rice

Topic:
Description: When Skeletons Come Out of Closets was preached in a red hot revival service. Preacher -- here is the way it's supposed to be done. Christian -- there is water here if your soul needs an oasis. Seeker of truth -- if you are worried about life after death, about how to have peace with God--here is the answer from God's word, the Holy Bible. "Everybody that goes to hell gets exactly what he deserves. He walks up to the ticket window and pays his own fare to hell -- in wages! But everybody that goes to heaven rides on a free pass."
