  1. I like your copyright Brother. I to have a similar copyright. I read Loraine Boettner’s copyright in his book “The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination” and fashioned my copyright after his. His copyright reads:

    “Anyone is at liberty to use material from this book with or without credit. In preparing this book the writer has received help from many sources, some acknowledged and many unacknowledged. He believes that the material herein set forth to be a true statement of Scripture teaching, and his desire is to further, not to restrict, its use.”

    • Amen, brother.

      I used to carry a similar statement in many of my pamphlets and publications years ago, but have discontinued for awhile as my stuff didn’t have much circulation anyway. I only copyright my printed publications so that some publishers, whose scruples might not be Christian, don’t just steal them for personal or corporate profit.

      Thanks for the comment, brother. Lord willing, we’ll see you tomorrow.
