Description

Lazarus help me break the paradigm that my generation had been raised with. That paradigm stated that when a car has 100,000 on it, it was worn out. You couldn't feel safe to drive across town with it, and certainly not across the country. Thus, every mile that I put on Lazarus was a source of amazement as the paradigm became sicker and sicker until it totally died. "They don't make cars like they use to," I hear old-timers say. And, they are right. They don't make cars like they use to, for which I am very glad. They make them better now.show more

About Ernie Perkins

Ernie Perkins has had a most unusual life. He preached his first sermon as an eleven-year-old boy. The amazing thing is not that a little boy wanted to preach, the amazing thing is that his pastor and church took him seriously. They had seen his spirit and sensed that God was directing the boy in a unique manner. Thus, after talking with his pastor, the pastor made arrangement for him to preach the following Wednesday night. Under the pastor's leadership, the church gave him one Sunday night a month in which he was to preach. Furthermore, the church licensed him to the gospel ministry when he was twelve-years-old. Licensing in his denomination was the church's placing its approval on him and asking other churches to use him. It was an endorsement. Other churches did use him and he averaged preaching every week until he became pastor of his first church while still in high school. Realizing that a call to ministry was a call to prepare he has pursued his goal of life-long learning, earning three master degrees and four doctoral degrees. He and his wife, Wanda, keep their furniture in Edmond, Oklahoma.show more
