Description

I will give a "Personal Word" to those who faithfully read my little column for those twenty-three years I was the executive director of the Capital Baptist Association, thank you for your past words of encouragement. I estimate that I wrote over a thousand of them on every reasonable subject that I could think of. When I was a boy, I found an author who greatly influenced me. His name was Ernie Pyle who wrote a daily column for a Chicago newspaper. Up until I found Ernie Pyle, I probably went by the name "Ernest." At least that is how I would write my name. After finding Ernie Pyle, I started writing my name "Ernie." I will let the reader determine if he had any influence on my life. A Japanese sniper killed Ernie Pyle in the closing days of WWII, but the books continuing copies of his articles lived on. Remembering that those books were fascinating, though all they were was just one article followed by another, influenced me to do a collection of my articles. I have done four such books placing about fifty articles in each. I hope the reader enjoys reading the following articles.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
