We Have Lost A Fearless Preacher
A good friend of mine, Paul deParrie, was such a preacher as this.
He not only refused to bow the knee to the State, he confronted the powers that be with the word of God. The world calls such men drastic, fanatical, extreme, negative, hateful, and in a sense they are right. He was single-minded, severe, unrelenting, fearless, because these are the qualities the circumstance demands! His ministry was geared to the emergency and that is what set him apart.
To such men whom God has sent with an unpopular message "the church owes a debt too heavy to pay," said A.W. Tozer. The curious thing is that she seldom tried to pay Paul while he was alive.
Paul deParrie, a fearless preacher, will be sorely missed.
