Reality Sinks In!

 Dear Jed,

Just wanted to write to wish you the best with your ministry.  My uncle first saw you when he was a student back in the 80s and often commented that your good humor was often what made him stop to listen to your message. We're Roman Catholic (of the Irish variety) to the core and though in one sense my uncle Pete has always lived a good life he said that stopping to hear you preach did his faith much good.

I saw a video of you on YouTube.com a while ago and always wanted to contact you to say I think you do a swell job. Your message is the Lord's message and you know how to engage students. Truth is, if there wasn't some degree of humor and fun to your preaching none of them would pay the slightest bit of attention.  It is when they return to their dorms later in the day that perhaps the reality of your message sinks in…

EC at Smock Open House

      I came to Mizzou as a freshman, but  I was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a girl; even though I had been raised in a Christian home.  I never before heard anyone put together the Scriptures like Brother Jed.  The preaching  got me thinking and then under conviction.  God spoke Matt 6:24 to my mind.   I was not familiar with the verse so I looked it up:  ‘No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.’  God gave me a Rhema, instead of mammon, for me the word was self.  God told me to make a choice between Him and self.  Everyone began to see a change in me; my parents were happy with the change. The girl and her parents were unhappy .  The girl had a emotional reaction, which made it easier to break up.

Another Testimony From EC


Note from Bro. Jed:

The below testimony is interesting to me, since I am often accused of preaching a works based salvation. It is not through the initial preaching of grace, that men find grace; but it is through the preaching of the law, which can prepare the heart to the Divine influence, which, if received, is then reflected in one’s changed character.


“Through the law my sin was made known to me. My wretchedness, which I hid in my heart, was brought out, brought to the surface. Dead to Christ and a slave to sin and lusts of the flesh, I was indeed a Pharisee. I was dependent on my works for salvation. I knew some scripture, I attended church occasionally, I was a “good person” and didn’t drink or smoke or curse. However, I knew nothing of faith, hope or love. Truly, I didn’t know Christ. 


I thank God for your ministry and the Truth that you spoke to me. I thank God for the seed of the word of life that you planted in my heart. I shudder to think what path I would be on had you not preached the gospel to me.


God bless you and your ministry Brother Jed. Though your words my sin was spotlighted and then you gave me hope of redemption through our Lord Jesus Christ.


Now I may boldly proclaim that I am indeed dead to sin and alive unto Jesus Christ! Glory to God. I encourage you in your ministry and pray that God continues to provide you with good soil.


God Bless You,


EC A. University of Missouri—Columbia





Christian Apologizes

September 18, 1998 

Dear Brother Jed, 

My name will not be familiar to you, but if I were to stand in front of you, you would probably recognize my face from your 1983 and 1984 trips to Michigan State University. I remember you and Bro Cope from 1983 and your traveling companion from 1984. 

The reason I write is to apologize for the behavior I displayed during both of these trips. During 1983 I denounced Bro Cope in a self-righteous fit of indignation. You would remember my antics from the next year--I tried to provoke you and your friend by pretending to be a homosexual making a pass at each of you. I must compliment you on how well you handled the provocation. 

While I had (and still have) deep philosophical differences with you, what I did in the 1980's was wrong and unchristian because I was trying to force you to sin. Instead of trying to lift up Jesus Christ, I was more intent on humiliating you and your companions. I was wrong and I am truly sorry, and as a brother in Christ, I ask for your forgiveness. I also ask that you please convey this apology to Bro Cope and your partner from 1984. 

Yours in Christ, 

Anthony M.
