Dear Roy:
I was personal friends with Dr. Martin for many years. And yes, Dr. Martin knew
a great deal about Church History and history in general. Also was somewhat of an
expert on Canonization of the Scriptures.  For almost all of those years that I knew
Dr. Martin, however, he just could not comprehend certain giant spiritual truths, such
as man not having a "free" will and the Sovereignty of God. He did, to his credit, just
prior to his death accept this spiritual truth, I am told.
 
Dr. Martin did not comprehend too much concerning the spiritual aspects of Jesus' teaching.
To him, most things were physical. He believed that the "Lake of fire," for example is a
literal lake of water over in Palestine, etc. I have nothing bad to say about him, but he
assuredly did not comprehend a great deal with respect to Christ's words being "SPIRIT."
 
Those in care of his Foundation contacted me after his death and offered me the opportunity
to continue his work. I turned it down for obvious reasons.
 
God be with you,
Ray
