Trib Updates and SOS!

This is a weekly series that will include a brief summary of the latest articles that have been published on The Tribulation Times Herald-Exhorter. Hopefully, this will encourage you to go check out some truly outstanding articles that have been published by a number of truly outstanding authors. Moreover, I hope this will also encourage you to want to become a contributing member/author, as well. The “Hear Ye! Hear Ye!” site explanation near the top of the side-bar should answer many of your questions.

Along with the updates will be some commentary on some of the spam that has been sent my way, which is what the SOS! (Serving Spam on Saturdays!) is all about. No, I do not expect to accomplish anything with the spammers. For if they understood what they are doing, surely they wouldn’t be doing it, but it will make me feel better, which is all that counts—right?

Okay, since this is the first one, that spam “stuff” will have to wait. For there have been quite a few truly outstanding articles published in the last two months. Yes, I realize that I keep repeating, “truly outstanding,” and I hope that will go see that it is not all hype.
