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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

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."
Enoch Hill Communion Sermon [Audio Sermon], December 5, 1971 11 AM Enoch Hill Communion Sermon [Audio Sermon], December 5, 1971 11 AM (mp3)
by Arthur A. Oakman
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."

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)
by Evan A. Fry
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."
