Man--His Nature And Destiny [Hear Ye Him #5], 1953 (mp3) by Evan A. Fry PDF (original script) see also Hear Ye Him Radio Series 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.
The Meaning Of The Crucifixion [Audio Sermon], 1954 (mp3) by Arthur A. Oakman 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?"

Mormonism Unveiled: Zion's Watchman Unmasked, And Its Editor, Mr. L. R. Sunderland, Exposed: Truth Vindicated: The Devil Mad, And Priestcraft In Danger! (Second Edition) 1838 (PDF) by P. P. Pratt 48 page pamphlet by Parley P. Pratt against L. R. Sunderland, editor of the Zion's Watchman paper. He states, "We propose in this work, to prove to every candid mind, that whether our principles be true or false Mr. Sunderland is guilty of the most glaring falsehoods, misrepresentations, and lying slanders, that ever disgraced humanity; and that he has palmed upon his deluded. readers, such wilful and barefaced imposition, that. he is justly ranked among dogs, sorcerers, whoremongers, murderers, and idolaters; and no longer fit to fill any place in civilized society; much less to stand at the head of a paper, under the sacred title of 'Zion's Watchman.' If his readers do not dismiss his paper immediately, after coming to a knowledge of his wickedness, they will be set down as partakers of his evil deeds; and if they hold him any longer in fellowship either as a christian or a member of society, the proverb will be fulfilled upon them, 'that a man is known by the company he keeps.'"
