Servants' News

Index for !995 &1996

— Arranged by Subject —

We have assigned one or more subjects to all of the previously listed articles and are presenting them here in order by subject. We realize that the subjects we have covered the most are "church government" and "church organization." We have devoted much space to these issues because it is difficult for people to learn more truth if they believe truth is revealed only through one man or organization.
