Fry, Evan A., 1902 - 1959
Baptism - The Door To The Kingdom [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #11], 1953 (mp3)
see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series
15 minute sermon by Evan A. Fry on Baptism. "About no other ordinance or doctrine of the Christian church is there so much disagreement, so much argument, or so much scoffing indifference, as there is about the ordinance of baptism...All Christians are agreed on one thing; that man is powerless to save himself, and that salvation is to be had only in and through the atonement of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Man cannot save himself. He is helpless, completely dependent on Christ for his salvation. Therefore he is in no position to dictate the terms on which he will be saved. Christ, the only person who can save him, dictates the terms. To try to change them to suit the individual fancy, or simply to ignore them scornfully and still expect a full salvation, is rebellion. It is an expression of the very attitude which sinful man must repent of and discard if he expects the atonement of Christ to be effective for him."
Bearers Of Christ's Authority [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #25], 1953 (mp3)
see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series
16 minute audio sermon. Discusses who has authority to represent God. "I have not been able to discover a single case in the New Testament where the minister for Christ simply felt his personal call and went to work." And, "Jesus sought the will of his Father, and delegated that authority only as God revealed his will to him after a night of prayer. Notice again that it was not the men who decided on the basis of an inner call that they were to be the twelve. Jesus said, 'Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you' (John 15:16)."
Does My Belief Matter? [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #1], 1954 (mp3)

Evan A. Fry Personal Testimony "Why Am I A Latter Day Saint" at the Colorado Reunion [Audio Recording], 1958 (mp3)
51 minute audio recording of the personal testimony of Evan A. Fry given at the Colorado, USA reunion in 1958. Brother Fry shares, "Some of the things I know, that I have seen and heard and felt." He tells about his heritage in the RLDS Church. Evan accepted the RLDS Church and became a member on faith, but also studied other religions. But he only found the fullness of the gospel in the RLDS Church. He states, "Now that's the way I feel about some of these other churches that are all about us, there is much of truth and of intelligence and of light in all of these churches. If there was not some truth and some light and some intelligence nobody would be attracted by them. But my belief and the thing that has been proved to me I believe over and over again in my experience and in my thought and in my study is that it's not all there. They don't have the fullness of the gospel."

Brother Fry states, "We have said that God is love, that he is a God of mercy. He is also a God of justice. He could not maintain his laws unless obedience to those laws always brought certain desirable consequences, and disobedience always brought undesirable consequences or punishments.

Our Belief In The Holy Ghost [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #4], 1953 (mp3) by Evan. A. Fry

Radio sermon in the Hear Ye Him radio series of the RLDS Church. Given on Sunday, January 25, 1953 at 8:30 a.m. on KMBC and KFRM radio at Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Brother Fry states, "Perhaps the most important function of the Holy Spirit is to bear witness to the divinity and the resurrected and continuing life of Jesus Christ. Paul says that no man speaking by the Spirit of God can call Jesus accursed. John says that the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. Jesus said that when the Comforter came it would testify of him." 15 minutes sermon.
Our Standard Of Belief [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #26], 1953 (mp3)
see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series
15 minute Audio sermon by Evan A. Fry on the Bible. He states, "Latter Day Saints believe the Bible more fully, more completely than many other peoples who conveniently ignore or overlook whatever does not agree with their hereditary doctrine and teaching." And, "The Bible is, and will continue to be, our standard of belief, against which we check all doctrine, all church organization, all ritual, all morality and ethics. The Bible is and will continue to be the compass that points us to God, the manual which we follow in our striving and seeking for eternal life.
The Second Birth [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #12], 1953 (mp3)
see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series
16 minute sermon by Evan A. Fry on Baptism. Brother Fry states, "Ye must be born again! It takes a new man, a new creature in Christ Jesus, to live a new life. If we are ever to have that brave new world about which prophets and seers and statesmen have dreamed, we can have it, not by changing the world but by changing ourselves. Men who are unregenerate, who live by their carnal, sinful nature, simply take all the wealth, the science, the invention, and the education which we have devised in this enlightened age and turn it to hellish and destructive purposes, or use it as a means of exploiting each other… Things in themselves are neither good or bad. They become good or bad only as they are used for good or evil purposes by good or evil men. A race of reborn men, who had repented of their sin, covenanted in baptism to serve Christ, and then received of his life, his Spirit, could take the same materials, the same inventions, the same scientific achievements which are making our world a hell today, and make the world a heaven almost overnight. The responsibility for today's world lies not in the things which surround us, but in ourselves, in the character of men everywhere who need to be born again from above."
Voices Of The Restoration [Audio Recording], n.d. (mp3)
This recording contains several excerpts from early RLDS Church leaders, including Evan A. Fry from the series Hear Ye Him.
What Became Of Christ's Church [Hear Ye Him Radio Sermon #23], 1953 (mp3)
see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series
16 minute sermon by Evan A. Fry. He states, "There is a startling unanimity of opinion among church historians that before three centuries had passed, the church which still claimed to be the church of Christ bore slight resemblance to the original. The conversion of the Emperor Constantine lifted Christianity from the status of a persecuted or tolerated religion to the status of a popular, court-favored, state religion…Paganism took over the Christian church. Henceforth, it was only a matter of time until church and state combined into one entity. Then the offices in the church, which had once been filled by the Spirit of God speaking through godly men set in the church, began to be filled by political maneuverings and secular appointments. Priesthood began to seek after the titles, the dress, and the emoluments of worldly princes and to forget their earlier ideals of service, humility, and unswerving morality. To put it bluntly, and yet as kindly as we may, we believe that the church went into apostasy."
Holsworth, J. A., 1883 - 1965
Njeim, George A., 1900 - 2000

Oakman, Arthur A., 1905 - 1975
Angelic Ministry - Endowment Lecture 5 [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Fifth in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "You know this Church was conceived in the ministry of angels. It was not brought forth by human instrumentality except as Joseph Smith and those who were around him responded to the ministry of those that were from above. It was Moroni, it was Peter, James and John; it was John the Baptist who appeared to him. It was from these brethren that Joseph received his call and ordination to the Priesthood and under the continual guidance of those which were from above the Church moved in the discharge of its responsibility. Brethren, never let us forget that for the hope of the Kingdom does not rest below here with men on the earth outside of the Church, it rest with men that are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God." A transcript is available HERE.

Blessed Are They Who Shall Seek To Bring Forth My Zion [Audio Sermon], 1958 (mp3)
49 minute sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman. He talks about Jesus Christ and the last supper. He also talks about agency and states, "We are free, for the origin of our actions is ourselves, but we are bound hand and foot because from ourselves there is no deliverance, unless it be through the mercy and the merits and the grace of Jesus Christ, who declares the love of God to us in those terms by which he is able to come to us and take us and lift us off of ourselves as center and re-center us in God."
The Burden Of Sin [Audio Sermon], n.d. (mp3)
55 minute sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman of the RLDS Church. He states, "I think it is foolish of us to close our eyes to our adversary, and I think if we are to combat sin we must study its manifestations, recognize it for what it is. And we cannot do this in our own strength either, because it's in the very nature of sin to deceive the sinner."
Endowment Lecture 1-Our Spiritual Universe [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
First in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "Brethren, there is an outer, external world which is designed to minister the life of God to us. And there is also an invisible, interior, inner world, and it is this invisible interior world, the world that is within us, with which we have to do, so terribly important. And, all of the apparatus known to us as the universe, the whole flux of things created, the presence of our fellow men, our heritage, history, all things, are designed that we may take them inside us. And that there may be created in us, in each one of us a universe of discourse, which shall be truly in harmony with the Spirit, and the mind, and the will of our Heavenly Father." A transcript is available HERE.
Endowment Lecture 2-A Spiritual View Of History [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Second in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "The universe is created by God and in its midst are creatures that he has created out of his love because he is love. God doesn't love us because we are lovable, he loves us because he is love; it's his nature to do this. And gentlemen, nothing you and I can ever do can make God stop loving us, and caring for us, and spending himself for us, and becoming involved with us. In everything man does the Eternal is committed. There have been some who have thought that God is unconcerned about humanity, that he is not involved in human history. Then what do we do? We point to Calvary. We say yes we know that human history is cruel; we know that it devours its children. We know that the story of mankind is fraught with terrible things, but to say that God is aloof is not true. For he himself in the person of his Son has entered into the course of time, and has taken in his own body the sins of men, and put them on a tree, and made those sins shine with the love of God." A transcript is available HERE.
Endowment Lecture 3-The Holy Spirit And The Church [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Third in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "In a discussion of the Holy Spirit why is it that we began with the story of creation? The answer to that question is the fact that the creation itself reflects the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Creation itself is an actualization of the Holy Spirit. And the universe is a framework so to speak, in which the Holy Spirit or God through the Spirit, is eminent. You remember the other night we talked about the scaffolding that was put round a building? This is an analogy by which we can view the universe as the scaffolding through which our Heavenly Father ministers his life to us. And the important thing for us to remember is that there is the universe that is around us and the universe that is within us. We stand between the two, and take the universe that is around us and put it within us. And as we do this as much of the life of God as is in the universe which we describe through the spirit of truth is given to us." A transcript is available HERE.
Endowment Lecture 4-Gifts Of The Spirit [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Fourth in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "…we discussed the church and we tried to make it quite clear, that this was either 'a church,' or it was 'the church.' If it is simply 'a church,' I cannot see any reason for our existence. But if it is 'the church,' then it means that we have a unique, distinct position. The Protestant world as a whole as far as its theologians are concerned have no clear cut conception of the church. They have different varying definitions of it, but for us there should be no doubt. The Church of Jesus Christ is the body of Christ; that body of people who are brought together by the gift of his Spirit, and who share in the community of the Spirit by reason of their rebirth." A transcript is available HERE.
Endowment Lecture 5-Angelic Ministry [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Fifth in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "You know this Church was conceived in the ministry of angels. It was not brought forth by human instrumentality except as Joseph Smith and those who were around him responded to the ministry of those that were from above. It was Moroni, it was Peter, James and John; it was John the Baptist who appeared to him. It was from these brethren that Joseph received his call and ordination to the Priesthood and under the continual guidance of those which were from above the Church moved in the discharge of its responsibility. Brethren, never let us forget that for the hope of the Kingdom does not rest below here with men on the earth outside of the Church, it rest with men that are above where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God." A transcript is available HERE.
Endowment Lecture 6-Spiritual Endowment [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Sixth in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "Charity preventeth a multitude of sins. And if there was ever a day in the history of the world when men needed someone else to stand in their lives and go before them to warn them, to guide them and direct them; that is today. The adversary of souls has always been on the alert, but in the language of the Apocalypse he rages today in the hearts of men knowing he has a short time. I commend to you the spirit and the principle of sacrifice; the discovery of yourself in the act of ministry to other people. It is not that this church is an organization of people banded together to finish or find or realize some ideal. That's not our calling. We are members one of another. This is an organism, a living body, so definitively wrought together as to be inseparable. And we've very often lost sight of that in our ministrations abroad." A transcript is available HERE.
Enoch Hill Communion Sermon [Audio Sermon], December 5, 1971 11 AM (mp3)
13 minute sermon by Evangelist Arthur Oakman given at the Enoch Hill Congregation in Independence, Missouri, USA on December 5, 1971. He shares thoughts concerning the significance of the Lord's Supper. "The Word of God is the flesh of God. The Word of God is the life of God. And this, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ strove to impress upon those who heard him. As one reflects upon the, as I say, the types and shadows that have come down to us through history, he recalls that the Jewish Passover was replaced by the Lords' Supper. The Passover you will recall was eaten by the Children of Israel the night before they left Egypt. The paschal lamb was to be prepared according to strict instructions; no bone was to be broken, the blood was to be sprinkled upon the doorposts and the lintels of their homes. The scriptures has it that when this was done the destroying angel passed by the Children of Israel and they were preserved. This meal was to be food to sustain them on the journey from bondage, the bondage of Egypt, to the freedom of the promised land. And this continued down with the Jews until our Lord came and reestablished his Church as he had intended. And since he himself was to be the Lamb of God and was the Lamb of God, he took the feast of the Passover and changed its form. Designated himself as the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world."
Farview Heights Series [Audio Sermon 1], 1971 (mp3)
45 minute sermon by Arthur Oakman. He states, "The work of delivery the people of God from bondage and planting them in Zion requires that they have some knowledge of the Divine purpose. That we come to know that the whole of life is purposeless and that nothing ever walks with aimless feet as the poet has said. We live in a day of course when we're blessed by and cursed by the spirit of science. One of the great tragedies of our age is that its chief glory is also its main stumbling block. We have come to believe that nothing that we can imagine can be restrained from us. And as the spirit of inquiry and research goes on and on and on and mankind's more and more about the universe around him, he brings back to us marvelous things. And as he is learning more about the world of course he is learning more about God. But even this glory of ours is our chief stumbling block as I said because it is assumed by so many that the scientific approach to reality is the only valid way that the universe could reveal its' secrets to us."
Farview Heights Series [Audio Sermon 2], 1971 (mp3)
44 minute sermon by Arthur Oakman. Brother Oakman states, "We're told in modern day revelation that one of the functions of the restoration is that every man might speak in the name of God the Lord, even the Savior of the world. Have you ever thought about that? That every man might speak in the name of God the Lord, even the Savior of the world. In order that faith might increase in the earth, that mine everlasting covenant might be established, and that my gospel might be preached, that the fullness of my gospel might be preached in all the world by the weak and the simple unto the ends of the world, and before kings and rulers. Can you speak in the name of God the Lord?"
The Holy Spirit And The Church - Endowment Lecture 3 [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
Third in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "In a discussion of the Holy Spirit why is it that we began with the story of creation? The answer to that question is the fact that the creation itself reflects the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Creation itself is an actualization of the Holy Spirit.

The Meaning Of The Crucifixion [Audio Sermon], 1954 (mp3)
62 minute sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman. "My friends, tonight, I bid you to come with me to Calvary in the power of the Spirit. It won't be a pleasant sight; it'll hurt you. But if you're brave enough to stay you'll never be the same again. The center and the meaning of the universe rests in a figure on a cross so dreadful in his solitude and spiritual loneliness, so marvelous in his willing submission to those who killed him and for whom in his agony he prayed and so altogether glorious in his utter dependence upon his Father who did not leave his soul in hell, but delivered him. Can the Church in this day bear the site?"
The Ministry Of Reconciliation [Audio Sermon], 1972 (mp3)
46 minute sermon by Evangelist Arthur Oakman of the RLDS Church, given at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA in 1972. He states, "I was given to understand of the Holy Spirit, that our Heavenly Father has softened the hearts of the leaders of the nations for a season in order that we in his church may have the opportunity to strengthen ourselves in zionic endeavor…"
Our Spiritual Universe - Endowment Lecture 1 [Audio Sermon], 1966 (mp3)
First in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966.

Revival Through Evangelism [Audio Sermon], 1958 (mp3)
53 minutes sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman, given at the 1958 RLDS General Conference. He states, "He is our light, indwelt by the glory of the divine love. For all of us share a common humanity, just as every continent is secretly joined beneath the depths of the sea, joined to every island of the sea, is related to and joined to every other part of the earth; so every man in the depths of his personality is joined to every other man."
The Spirit Of Prophecy [Audio Sermon], n.d. (mp3)
41 minute sermon given at the RLDS Stone Church, Independence, Missouri, USA. Discusses the struggle between good and evil. He states that there are only two churches, the church of the Lamb of God and the church of the devil. One is dominated by the spirit of pride and the other is dominated by the spirit of love. Recording is poor quality at the beginning.

Sixth in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966. Brother Oakman states, "Charity preventeth a multitude of sins. And if there was ever a day in the history of the world when men needed someone else to stand in their lives and go before them to warn them, to guide them and direct them; that is today.

Second in a series of six lectures given to the Melchisedec Priesthood at the RLDS Stone Church in Independence, Missouri, USA from October 3 to 13, 1966.

The Value Of Incarnation [Audio Sermon], 1959 (mp3)
Sermon by Apostle Arthur Oakman of the RLDS Church given in 1959. A few excerpts include, "If our Church is to accomplish its purpose, it will not be alone as we observe life going by us and acting in us; it will be when we can lay hold of life by observing the principles of the gospel of Christ moving; and utilize those principles and meanings in helping to create that future for which the Son of God came into the world. And with this in mind I would like to share with you a few thoughts on the incarnation of God…No man is fully at rest until he finds meaning and value in life. And it is meaning and value in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ which constitutes the glory of the Kingdom of God." The sermon is 42 minutes long.
