Concerning the Baptist Library and several things to address

February 12, 2019 2 comments

There might be a huge misconception among folks on social media about my being able to find a job. They somehow believe that I cannot possibly find one and therefore, I was building a library to somehow become rich and have my household provided for without working. This is simply not true.

I possess a class A CDL and finding a job is as simple as going to certain sites and placing contact info on them. Then I just sit back and wait on employers to contact me. All I done yesterday is answer phone calls, text messages, and emails. It is that simple!

I could have been making huge dollar amounts the past few months. For instance: I was offered a job yesterday which guaranteed $65,000 a year in writing. A $5000.00 sign-on-bonus and a company paid phone. This is not to mention all the additional bonuses and perks that come with this job.

So my goal in building a Baptist Library was to have an alternative to the Puritan-Hard Drive, which by the way is full of hard to read scanned copies of books. It is also not Baptist friendly. Despite what Still Waters Revival Books claims, there is absolutely no Baptist material on the Puritan Hard Drive that can actually be considered particularly Baptist. In other words, just because there is a file or two on it by Particular Baptists, (such as Charles Spurgeon or Arthur Pink) does not fulfill the claim of Still Water Revival Books of containing 2203 Reformed Baptist books, mp3’s, and videos. I mean, a file by Charles Spurgeon on the sovereignty of God, does not make this drive contain anything that is particularly Baptists; seeing that the doctrine of God’s sovereignty is a doctrine that is particularly Christian. All Christians, whether they call themselves Baptist are not, should believe in the sovereignty of God. On my website I have a link listing all the Pdf’s on the SWRB drive and there are only a little over 70 Pdf’s out of 2000 plus Pdf’s which are by Baptist authors and not one of them is even a Baptist Confession much less anything that is considered particularly Baptist.

So again, my goal was to build a library that was Baptist friendly, easy to read, and that did not cost a fortune. (I paid over $800 for the SWRB drive while it was in the process of being developed into a drive from 36 Cd’s). I was well on my way of doing this seeing that the Baptist Library Vol I contains 417 Mb’s of material in 435 files.

So again, my goal was not to be rich, nor to make a huge profit off of these files. I could have been driving and making all kinds of money. However, while in this endeavor of building a drive, bills have to be paid. So that is why I am going back to driving and making a living. This is due to the fact that there was simply no support for the drive.

It is that simple folks. If I wanted to make huge dollar amounts, I certainly wouldn’t have been trying to build a library for Baptists, I would have been driving instead.
