In Memoriam: F. Leroy Forlines (1926-2020)

Theological Commission

By now many Free Will Baptists have been saddened by the news of the passing of F. Leroy Forlines, long-time theology professor, author, Commission chairman, and denominational leader. Of course, we think especially of his precious wife, sons, and grandchildren. Our prayers are with them all.

In the coming weeks we anticipate offering several tributes to Bro. Forlines here on the blog. For now, we wanted to call attention to one recent post at Chairman Matt Pinson’s blog, “Hold Fast the Truth, and Keep Humble: For Leroy Forlines, My Mentor in Truth.”

In this holiday season as we meditate on the meaning of Christ’s birth, may we also be reminded that it is because of His coming that these partings are temporary, not permanent.

Merry Christmas.
