My heart goes out to the Humbard family at this sad time. Especially Clem and Juanita (two of Rex's siblings), the only two members I've had the pleasure of meeting. Having met them, I am aware of the sincerity of their love of - and trust in - the Lord, and their desire to point souls to Jesus.
As Rex used to say, "We all, like sheep, have gone astray." "We've all missed the mark." And, "We all need Jesus." That, I believe, was the point of his whole ministry.
I'm in the U.S. Foreign Service and drove from Arlington, VA to my hometown of Akron, OH for the viewing hours yesterday (Saturday). I'm very near Federal retirement (after 35 years), and can only 'wish' that I could have been blessed with the same talent to win souls for Jesus, which is the only work of real value in this life - whether such talent is preaching over the air-waves, or translating the Bible (the Gospel of Jesus) into African, Arab, or other languages. God bless
SAY, HARRY----the only place Rex Humbard missed going to was the SKINNY BAR MOTEL. That's were crooks like him should go, but since he was a "preacher", the law let him steal to his heart's content (well, almost---the IRS did force him to sell the Cathedral of MONEY!)

So true, I can't wait until the Pastor at the Chapel has to pay for his cruelty. Larson is the worst of all of them.

I believe God has blind all you non-believers eyes to the TRUTH that the Humbards and Pastor Larson preached and lived daily. You don't understand, comprehend, or believe the Truth, God's son Jesus Christ. I pray that you will not depart this world without coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
