The first book written by Matthew Pope, “In Doctrine, Uncorrupt,” is a compilation of articles published on February 15, 2014. Featuring nearly 30 articles, it contains a series of writings composed while writing for his home church’s newsletter at Northside Baptist Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. Monthly articles, each pertains to a Christian practice, person, or issue: such as abortion (Matthew 18:6), baptism (Matthew 3:11), gay marriage (Romans 1:27), and pro-church politics (Romans 13). In short, it is a “reinstatement of Christian doctrine,” for the betterment of society, whilst rejecting secular beliefs, birthed from the Bible verse for which it is named, Titus 2:7: “In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity.” Even the cover is symbolic, depicting Jesus being baptized by St. John the Baptist in the River Jordan: a metaphor for the Baptist Faith and the familiar example of common doctrine as revealed by Christ The Son for His Catholic (Universal) Church: “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him” (Matthew 3:13)
