The inscription on the monument, shown below:


In Memory of
Who fell asleep June 26, 1894,
In his 76th year.
Over 40 years Editor of various Magazines
Circulated by Churches of Christ,
Among whom he was eminent

as a
Preacher, Teacher, and Defender of
The Faith.
Rejecting all human creeds,
He pleaded that the Teaching of Christ
And His apostles is the only Divinely authorized
And all-sufficient Way of Salvation and basis of
Christian Union.
"He was a good man"
"Mighty in the Scriptures."

Ask for the Old Paths and walk therein.




David King wrote many articles, here are some he wrote from the 1850s onwards. As with all doctrine we must be prepared like the Bereans to check all things in light of scripture.
