The Rather Brethren?
A preacher whose life began in the 19th century and ended in the 20th, Henry Ficklin, was said to have referred to people with whom he disagreed as the, "rather brethren." It was a reference to the King James Version wording in 2 Peter 1:10: "Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure..." He is said to have used this reference to remind us all that we must make our calling and election sure. Two sermons are posted titled, "The Rather Brethren." We invite you to listen.
