Ralph has written many articles, studies and sermons, some of which can be found on this site. Documents may be copied for others to read provided no changes are made without permission and credit is given to the author. Some articles are rather long, so you may want to copy them to your PC to read.

PLEASE, if you see anything that you disagree with, let me know. If convinced, I will correct it and if not, I will explain why not.

Proverbs 9:8 says, Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee. Rebuke a wise man and he will love thee.
Proverbs 12:15 says, The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.

Try me to see if I am a fool and a scorner, or if I am wise and love you!
