|Only Begotten and
the Deity of Christ
A Review of Hugo McCord's paper
At the request of brother Ben F. Vick, Jr., of Indianapolis, Indiana, I reviewed brother Hugo
McCord's paper distributed at the Freed-Hardeman College Bible Lectureship in 1988. This
review was first printed as a series of editorials in the March through December 1988 issues of
Speak As The Oracles.
This booklet form is a joint effort of Speak As The Oracles, Robinson Typesetting, and Decker &
Ross Publishing. It is due to their efforts and generosity that it is offered in its first printing for
free. My thanks to both Garland M. Robinson and brother Martin L. Decker for their generosity.
Also, my thanks to the church where I labor, which will begin meeting at 3900 N. East St. in
Lansing, Michigan, in the summer of 1989, for allowing me the time to do the research
necessary for this review by relieving me of some duties. Their support and love for the truth are
to be commended.
An Addenda has been added to the original series of editorials as they appeared in Speak As
The Oracles. THE FOURTH FREED-HARDEMAN COLLEGE PREACHERS AND CHURCH
WORKERS FORUM on the theme of ONLY BEGOTTEN, TRANSLATIONS, AND UNITY with
Robert R. Taylor, Jr., J. Noel Merideth, Ralph Gilmore and Hugo McCord took place after the
original series of editorials had closed. The Addenda deals with some questions raised by the
Read carefully and thoughtfully. The question is of great magnitude. It affects the doctrine of the
deity of Christ. I honestly believe it shall have grave consequences upon the future of the church.
