Thank you for visiting The Scripturecache. At the age of 16 (1954) I made my first feeble attempt at preaching a Gospel sermon. In the subsequent decades of preaching the Gospel, I have had the opportunity to write many hundreds of articles and manuscripts. Lavonne, my late beloved wife of 56+ years (she passed to her reward January 5, 2013) and Andy, one of our sons, have written a considerable body of material as well. Our combined efforts have produced several thousand pages of treatises on the Bible and Bible-related subjects—and Andy and I continue to write.

Various ones have urged me to make these materials more widely available than they are in the numerous books and dozens of periodicals in which they have been published. This I am pleased to do by means of The Scripturecache. These materials include commentary on assorted passages of Scripture, character and biographical studies of Bible personalities, essays relating to worship and doctrine, and articles on various ethical, practical, and doctrinal issues.

I believe the materials you will find here will increase your Bible knowledge, enrich your spiritual perspective, and draw you nearer to God. From brief articles to much longer manuscripts, you will find here a treasury (cache!) of Bible-related materials for the taking.

Our Locations page provides statistics concerning the number of visitors to The Scripturecache at any given moment and where these visitors live.

Our Brief Articles page holds a collection of articles of 1–3 pages in length, many of which I have written for various church bulletins I have edited since 1960. Hundreds of church bulletin editors throughout the land have republished (and are still republishing) them. I also wrote a few hundred of these shorter articles for newspaper publication.

Our Longer Articles page includes treatises of 4–10 pages in length, most of which were originally published in various religious periodicals, one of which I edited as founding editor for 5-1/2 years. Lavonne has several articles on this page.

Our Long Manuscripts page contains treatises ranging in length from 11–38 pages, most of which Lavonne, Andy, and wrote on assignment for various lecture programs and which have been published as chapters in 200+ books produced by said programs.

Our Latest Uploads page is a depository of files of various lengths not available Online until recently. Check this page frequently for new uploads.

Our Gospel Sermons page contains video recordings of sermons by Andy and me, which listing will grow with time.

Immediately under our masthead you will find some navigation tools in the left-hand menu bar. By entering a subject in the Search box, archived article links on that subject will appear on the page. The Pages  list will let you move to any page of  The Scripturecache instantly with one click. The Categories section provides you with a long list of subjects from which to select; upon selecting a subject, links will appear to archived treatises on that selection.

The right-hand sidebar is the only portion of The Scripturecache that includes video recordings of material produced not only by ourselves, but by others as well. The Lectureships section contains a collection of Bible lectureships that I highly recommend, which collection will grow with time. You will find here video recordings of numerous sermons on various vital Bible themes. Under the Archives feature is list of our written treatises that we have archived, with the month they were archived. We are also constantly expanding this section, eventually to include all of our uploaded articles and MSS. The Debates section follows, in which we have uploaded video recordings of several debates on a variety of subjects. We will also be expanding this section periodically.

In all that the three of us have written, we have had absolute faith in the statement of the apostle Paul:

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16, KJV).

We have never found any evidence to persuade us otherwise than that the Bible is the inspired Word of God throughout, including the very words in which the Holy Spirit revealed it to its original writers (1 Cor. 2:10, 13; 2 Pet. 1:20–21; et al.). We believe that the Bible sits in judgment of men, and we tremble at the eternal fate of mere human beings who dare to assume the role of its judges and critics.

These materials are non-sectarian and non-denominational—they simply seek to get to the heart of the meaning (and application) of the Scriptures. I encourage you to download, copy, and distribute these documents freely (including using them for study guides or supplemental materials in Bible classes). However, they are copyrighted, so I must insist that you pass them on to others at no charge, even as you have received them. Also, as basic integrity demands, please give proper attribution of these materials when you reproduce them for and/or distribute them to others.

If the things we have written (and the materials by others we have posted) help even one person to a better understanding of the Sacred Text and to a closer relationship with its Divine Author, we will feel amply rewarded. If you find The Scripturecache helpful, please recommend it to others. May God bless you in your study of His Word.

With kindest regards,

Dub McClish,

Gospel preacher

  • Hey brother Dub,

    I suppose it's been since Denton 2000 when I last saw you? So sorry to learn of your bride's death. Thought alot of her !

    I look forward to diving into your archive. Please give us a listen at the above TGRN.org address. We're up here in Mt. Vernon, TX preaching the word. Pray for us as we pray for you. God bless

  • Jim Hogan:

    Hi, brother Dub.

    Your articles are a blessing. We have Jerry Rushford coming to the UK soon on a tour with a group of singers. The are visiting our congregation, last time he came I was concerned by some things said and done. Can anyone tell me if this man is a faithful brother or not?

     

    Every blessing

    Jim

    • Dub McClish:

      Hi Jim:

      Many thanks for visiting The Scripturecache and for your kind comment. I encourage you to tell others about it.

      Jerry Rushford has a long history of liberal connections and influences, largely through several years of working at Pepperdine University. PU was for years the most liberal school operated by brethren, but now it is rivaled by Abilene “Christian” U and Lipscomb U in Nashville, with other schools not far behind. Rushford was director of the PU Lectures for a number of years, during the course of which he brought to tis campus such proud and blatant liberals as Rubel Shelly, Royce Money, Jeff Walling, Terry Rush, Max Lucado, and Rich Atchely to spew their heresies. If you don’t recognize some of these names, let me assure you that they are well known by those who still contend for the Old Paths on this side of the Atlantic. They have been (and continue to be) in the forefront of apostasy in the Lord’s church and in the schools over the past 3+ decades. Even if Rushford doesn’t teeach/preach error while he is there, he is a liberal to the core of his being. He is a wolf who should not be invited/allowed to come among the sheep. I’m sorry to be a bearer of bad tidings, but the truth is the truth.

      Yours in the Cause,

      Dub McClish

      • Jim Hogan:

        Thank you, Dub.

        I do recognise those names as I try to keep up with what is going on in the Lord's church worldwide. Jerry Rushford is coming for a one-day visit to our congregation with about 40 in his group. I didn't like his antics last time he came so won't be attending when he visits this time. I do get concerned about the way our congregation is going and have stepped in the past to prevent it going down the wrong path. We had a praise team over from the states last year with clapping, boom boxes etc. I walked out of it in disgust. Please pray for the church in the UK.

        I'm planning to start a congregation in the town I live in and have set up a website in anticipation of that. It is still a work in progress, here is the web address; http://www.ketteringchurchofchrist.com/index.html

    Can you tell me anything about David Stidham preacher in a congregation in Florida who is coming here to the uk

      Jim:
      My face is red! I somehow missed your message and question, just discovering it this morning. Please accept my apology. I’m sure the visit by David Stidham has come and gone by now. However, I could not have helped you with your question, since I am unfamiliar with him.

      Dave:
      There is some problem to which I don’t know the answer regarding your email. I added you to our weekly mailings list months ago, and they bounced back each week. I double-checked that I had your correct address, even copying and pasting it to my address book. I eventually deleted it as a “lost cause.” If this reaches you, let me know if you know what might be causing the problem. I’ll be glad to add you again if we can get it fixed.
      Yours in the Cause.

  • Dub, I have appreciated your article concerning the history of antiism and refer to it often. Excellent! — Gary

     

  • Gary Blasingame:

    Hi, Dub!

    Please make note of my new email address and amend your email list so I can received your weekly posting.

    I have decided to join the ranks of the "gainfully" retired and happily unemployed…ha. 

    Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

     

    • Dub McClish:

      Gary:

      I was hoping you would send me an email address that would “work” after retirement. I have already deleted your previous address and will promptly add your new one.

      Congrats on your retirement. Hope your wife doesn’t say, “Just twice as much husband on half the income”! Would you be interested in doing some formatting and proofreading on some of my articles/MSS that are “waiting in the wings” to be readied for uploading to The Scripturecache? This would be of great help if you can, but if you can’t, I will understand. If you would like to do some of this work, let me know and I’ll blip you a couple to start on, along with my formatting protocols. Godspeed, dear brother, and thanks for all your help.

      Yours in the Cause,

      Dub

  • Randy King:

    brother McClish,

    Have you held meetings in the Pasadena/Houston area in the past?  

    Randy King

    • Dub McClish:

      Randy:

      No, I’ve not preached in any Gospel meetings in that area. I don’t know how far in the past you may be thinking about. My father preached in a meeting at Dickinson in about 1949 and I was with him as a lad of 11. I have preached perhaps 20 times over the years in the lectureship hosted by the brethren at Spring.

      Thank you very much for visiting The Scripturecache.com. I hope you will visit often and will tell others about it, if you find it worthy.

      Yours in the Cause,

      Dub McClish

  • Stephen Anticoli:

    Dear brother Dub , just read your posted article , " What is Sin " . I was wondering if you would allow me to copy & paste it and repost it ? I thought it was a superb piece . Thank you . I won't do so without your approval . Your name won.t appear .Thank you brother 🙂

    • Dub McClish:

      Steve:

      You are most gracious. Of course, you may repost the article at your will. I have never copyrighted and of my articles or MSS (as you can see at the very bottom of this page). If you wish to attach my name to it, I don’t mind—I’m certainly not ashamed of the material! I didn’t affix my name to the article as it appeared on FB, since my name was at the top of the posting. I have never attached my name to the articles as they appear in the newspaper because I want the attention of the reader to be on the church as their source. Godspeed, dear brother.

      Yours in the Cause,

      Dub McClish

  • Morris Legg:

     It was so good to have you, Andy and Lori with us on Sunday.  I hope you found all that we did in our Bible study and worship service to be in accordance with God's Word.  I must say your singing really added a great deal to our service.  Meredeth and I both enjoyed talking to you and learning of your long relationship with her dad, James Bobbitt.

    I have already visited your website and reviewed some of your shorter articles.  I hope you don't mind, but I have already selectred one I plan to use for our Wednesday night devotional, "On Freckles and Hairs."

    I hope you had a fun filled cruse and I'm sorry we won't get to see you next Sunday, but we plan to be in Memphis to visit our new grandson and his parents.  Please feel free to visit with us any time you are in our area.

    By the way, we are actively looking for a full-time minister.  If you know of any interested brethern, please give them my name and email address.  My phone number is 954-680-9150.  Since we are in an area with many hispanic people, the ideal candidate would be able to speak Spanish.

    Sincerely,

    Morris and Meredeth Legg

    Hialeah church of Christ

    • Dub McClish:

      Morris:

      Thanks for your nice note. We enjoyed being at Hialeah—both Sundays. It was good to meet and visit with you and sister Legg, along with several others. When Ben Pierre learned that we were headed for the Ft. Lauderdale Airport after worship Sunday, he insisted on taking us. We really enjoyed getting to know him—and were well-impressed with him.

      I’m glad you’ve visited The Scripturecache and have found something useful. Please help yourself to anything you can use, whether short articles or MSS. I appreciated the plug you gave it publicly, and I hope you may recommend it to others as you have opportunity.

      Cordially in Christ,

      Dub McClish

  • Praise God brother, am so glad to have gotten an opportunity to visit your website

    Am pastor Phylman Philips from kenya-Africa, I thank you for the good work of God that you are real doing, honestly God has a reward for you

    I understand that you have travelled slot of countries in preaching the gospel of God, but I don't think that you have ever been to Kenya, so wonderful

    I humbly request you and welcome you to my church here in Kenya so that you can come and preach the word of God

    I'm looking forward to hear from you, God bless you so much

    • Dub McClish:

      Dear Phylman:

      I’m pleased that you have discovered and visited The Scripturecache.com. Thank you for your kind words and for your invitation to to visit and preach the Gospel in Kenya. Yes, I have travelled to several nations in my younger years, but I’m no longer able to do so because of age and health considerations. I hope you will take full advantage of the resources on my Website—to use them in preparing your sermons and Bible classes. I invite you to print, copy, and distribute them freely to others at no cost to you, only asking that you credit their source. I see that you wear the title, “pastor.” I highly recommend that you read my article, “Preachers or Pastors?” for insight on the Scriptural use of these terms. You will find it on my “Brief Articles” page. May the Lord bless us all as we continue to study His Word and come to a greater knowledge of it. And may we have the courage to obey and practice what we learn.

      Yours in His service
