David Murdoch: Pastor and Author
David D. Murdoch is a former pastor and counselor. He was a student of the David Ebaugh Bible School. He considers David Ebaugh and Dr. Arnold Murray of The Shepherd’s Chapel, which is the largest TV Ministry in the world, as his mentors. David studied the bible most of his life. He was a pastor of a small town in Baytown, Texas. David also began counseling in the early ’70s. This was the start of his commitment to study more about and how to apply its lessons in real life.
David Murdoch’s knowledge of Biblical research is mostly self-taught. According to him, while others may open the door for you, you still have to study and allow truth to become a reality to you. For David, most of our troubles happen because of our poor knowledge of the Bible and that the Holy Bible is an essential tool in answering life’s uncertainties. Murdoch believes that since it was not originally written in English, many of the current church beliefs are based on the traditions of men rather than the scripture. He also discovered that many of our health issues are brought upon by us not following God’s food laws which when studied in the original languages were strictly followed.
David Murdoch thinks that many who professed to study the Bible do not know how to use it properly. Most teach traditions based on long-held traditions. David hopes to provide a fresh view of the scriptures, making it clear and much easier to digest. Murdoch presents the Bible in a more palatable form, especially for those who are want to understand. All these points are featured in a written by David Murdoch himself.
Pastor David Murdoch also believes that anyone can learn from the manuscripts even if one is not familiar with the ancient languages. In the 1980s, according to Murdoch, he and his wife Martha raised Egyptian Arabian horses. Keeping the pedigrees accurate led David to a better understanding of paying close attention to details which includes knowing the names and families in the Bible. It led to a closer study of the manuscripts, which broadened David’s understanding of the Bible. *
