ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hello visitor, my name is David L. Odom. I'm really happy to have you visit my web site! I have tried to make it a good Bible study site for seeking the pure Truth of the Creator.
I proudly served my country to protect its citizens from 1961 to 1964 in the
I have preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ publicly for over 50 years. Of course, that doesn't make my positions correct! But I just wanted you to know that I'm not a novice at studying God's inspired Word.
I have worked with various independent groups of christians that use the name of the One who purchased His church with His own blood. 'church of Christ' as their assembly name. I am interested in all of mankind following God's Word, as He wants us to, without additions or subtractions to His authority. If you are looking for others who are seeking to worship God as 'true worshippers' go to:

The question is; am I studying God's Word with an open mind, not adding to it, or taking away from it?
But that is for you to decide with the Holy Word of God!
Please E-mail me if you have questions, and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can. If you just want to argue, forget it, God tells us not to be contentious. But if you sincerely disagree, and want to defend what you believe with Scripture, fine.
If I disagree with your understanding of the Scripture, I will try to show you why I think the Scripture is being used wrongly. Remember, I may be wrong, you may be wrong, we both may be wrong, but we both canít be right, if we hold opposing views. God does not contradict Himself!
If you would like to have a Bible Correspondence Course mailed to you to help you study your Bible, just E-mail me and ask for it, and I will mail it to you free of any charge. Be sure to give your Name and Address so I can mail it to you.

God wants us to use our minds (not emotions) to study His Word and understand what He wants us to do. As He stated to His people under the old Law of Moses:
"Come now, and let us reason together, says Jehovah, though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be white as wool. If ye be willing and obedient..." (Isaiah 1:18,19).
This principle still holds true today under the new Law of Christ, the New Testament!
(Acts 6:7; Romans 1:5; 15:18, 26; II Corinthians 2:9)
If we do this in a spirit of love, I believe God will be pleased! He tells us to "...contend (agonize, wrestle) earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints" (Jude 3).
But He also tells us to do this in a proper way; "...but speaking the truth in love, we are able to grow up in aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ..." (Ephesians 4:15).
