About Straightway

In 1973 Dr. O. Talmadge Spence, founder of the Foundations Ministries, inaugurated the publication Straightway as a literary outreach of the Christian Purities Fellowship. The term Straightway is taken from Mark 1:18 with the emphasis upon the immediate response of the disciples to forsake their nets and follow Christ. Straightway continues to be a publication dedicated to dealing with issues of the contemporary in the light of the Word of God. Since the passing away of Dr. O. Talmadge Spence in the year 2000, the responsibility of the writings has been his son's, Dr. H. T. Spence, successor as president and pastor of the Foundations Bible College and Collegiate Church.

All of our questions in this article have brought us to the source of all grace; the source is Golgotha, Calvary, the Cross of the Lord Jesus. It is at the Cross where all our sins were placed upon Jesus, the Sin-Bearer; it was at the Cross that Jesus, the Just One, became the justifier of the believer in the righteousness of God. This is the fundamental of the Gospel; this is the core truth of which the cardinal truth, the central truth, is eternally fixed. No wonder the song-writer stated, "So I'll cling to the old, rugged cross till my trophies at last I lay down." There is a deadline here; there is a final resting, forgiving, and saving place here.
