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."

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)."

First radio sermon in the Hear Ye Him radio series of the RLDS Church. Given on Sunday, January 4, 1953 at 8:30 a.m. on KMBC and KFRM radio at Kansas City, Missouri, USA.

Evan A. Fry Personal Testimony Why Am I A Latter Day Saint at the Colorado Reunion [Audio Recording], 1958 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."

Radio sermon in the Hear Ye Him radio series of the RLDS Church. Given on Sunday, February 1, 1953 at 8:30 a.m. on KMBC and KFRM radio at Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Brother Fry states, "It was the spirit, and not the body of man that was made in the image of God. Because man is made in God's spiritual image, and contains a spark of the divine; he is akin to God; at his best he is capable of associating with God, talking with him, loving him and being loved by him, and living eternally with him. The spirit of man is the life-giving element. "The body without the spirit is dead," says James. It is the spirit, the intelligence of man, which has dominion over the material elements of the body, and over the earth, and over all lower forms of life on the earth. Spirit is the element which gives unity to the body. It determines that the body shall act as one--that every part shall cooperate with every other part." 13 minute sermon.

Jesus said that when the Comforter came it would testify of him." 15 minutes sermon.

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.

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."

Sunday, The Lord's Day Sunday, The Lord's Day, n.d. (PDF)
12 page tract on the history and significance of the Sabbath. "As the old Sabbath commemorated God's work of creation, and the deliverance of Israel from bondage in Egypt, so the new Sabbath commemorated God's work of redemption through Christ, and the deliverance of all men thereby from the bondage of death and sin. That new Sabbath was celebrated on the first day of the week, the Lord's day, instead of on the seventh day as under the old law of Moses, and under the old covenant, which were dead. Jesus meticulously kept the Jewish Sabbath, not according to the laws of the Pharisees, but according to his own law. But after the resurrection, the apostles observed the Lord's Day, the first day of the week, the day on which Jesus emerged from the tomb, completed his work of redemption, and delivered mankind from the bondage of sin and death."

What Became Of Christ's Church [Audio Sermon] What Became Of Christ's Church [Audio Sermon], n.d. (mp3)
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."
Fullmer, John S., 1807-1883
