|Known throughout the Christian world as "The Bible Answer Man," Brother Harry Hardwick
was the first draft pick in the Southern Baptist League of Pastors 1962 season. He currently serves as
an honorary pastor. Brother
Harry's fire and brimstone sermons are wildly popular, and he holds the
record for filling the most number of souls with the Holy Spirit while
inducing the most convulsions in a single sermon. Nevertheless, Brother
Harry cannot accept permanent pastor status due to a conflict of interest
with some of his business dealings. Ongoing disputes with the IRS preclude
Brother Harry from discussing this matter in more detail.
Brother Harry and his lovely wife, Heather, have 12 children, all boys, each
named after one of the apostles. Brother Harry owns a home in Freehold along
with property in other undisclosed locations. Brother Harry's Christian
philosophy is simple: Accepting Jesus is a prerequisite, not the final
hurdle, to gaining a foothold in Heaven. One must also follow all the
passages of the Bible, no matter how unpleasant or violent, to fellowship
with our Lord for eternity.
His favorite Bible passage comes from Leviticus 21:16-21.
"Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let
him not approach to offer the bread of his God. . . . a blind man, or a lame,
or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is
brokenfooted, or broken-handed, Or croockbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a
blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken . . .
he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God."
