The Andrew Lee Lofton Scholarship Fund

Andrew Lee Lofton, D.D.

June 27, 1933 – September 16, 1998

On March 29, 1992, Andrew was elected Pastor of Christ Temple, Dayton, Ohio following the death of Bishop Fred Majors.  He accepted this new responsibility with the same zeal and faithfulness that characterized his entire ministry and life.   Not only was he an outstanding pastor, he was an anointed preacher, seasoned teacher, gifted composter musician and author.  He wrote several songs; many of which inspired the congregants to praise God joyfully.
He genuinely loved and cared for his flock and practiced and lived what he taught.  He didn’t serve for money or prestige, but his primary concern was the welfare and salvation of the children of God.  He was a man of complete integrity and blameless moral character.  Moreover, he was a kind, compassionate, and gentle person.

Many, many people were benefactors of his kindness and generosity when they came to him in a time of need.  But above all this, Elder Lofton loved God.  He was faithful, steadfast and unmovable to the end. 

On September 6, 1998, Andrew preached his last Sunday message.  During his sermon, he made a profound declaration, “I’d rather fight than switch.”  While one might think what has happened is tragic, who knows the mind of God?  Could God have been preparing His servant?  What is known is that Andrew left behind a powerful legacy to his family who has carried on in his foot prints. 

Upon his demise, he left to cherish the memories of a productive and fruitful life:  his beloved wife of 45 years, Gwendolyn, his mother Beulah Wheatley (deceased), 11 children:  Carol Wilkes, Shelli Berryhill, Terrance Lofton (deceased), Candace Henry, Joyce Nails, Brian Lofton, Jonathan Lofton, Benjamin Lofton, Timothy Lofton, Nathan Lofton and Joel Lofton, 6 grandchildren:   Robert Nails, Andrea Wilkes, Alicia Wilkes, Shawn Henry, Breann Lofton and Kristina Thompson.

Against thee, thee only, have I sinned , and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest Psalms 51:4

Guilt is not of God. The Holy Spirit within us will convict us of our wrong, it is Satan who will try to wrack you with guilt to pull you away from God.  But, when we stray against the will of God and go to Him  according to His word and with godly sorrow and true repentance, He is faithful to forgive.  

This prayer is after King David had sinned with Bathsheba and his subsequent plan to have her husband killed.  Unlike his predecessor  Saul, he was accountable for his actions  and acknowledged to God in front of Nathan, that his sin was against God.  Nathan, the prophet, shows him the errors of his way and delivers God's punishment for the deeds he had committed.  David had indeed sinned against God, Nathan tells him  in II Samuel 12:14, Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.  

The account does not share with us if King David was already aware of the ramifications of his sin or the condition of his heart when he set in motion his plan to make Bathsheba his.  But, we do know, that once Nathan came to him, he did not hesitate to admit his sin.  And even at that time, Nathan told him that God had put his sin behind him although God would still chasten him.   

Here is King David’s prayer:  Psalms 51

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin! For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.  Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment.  

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.  Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return to you.

Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, O God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.  O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise. Do good to Zion in your good pleasure; build up the walls of Jerusalem; then will you delight in right sacrifices, in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

David lost his infant son as chastisement for the sin he committed, but he continued to serve the Lord and was considered a man after God's own heart.

Sometimes, we don’t want the chastisement of God, but I think on any given day, I would rather have His chastisement rather than to have Him say, ‘Depart from me you worker of iniquity.’  His word lets us know that He does chasten those whom He loves. 

What I really love about this account is that David readily admitted his sin, he did not try to justify it, he did not blame anyone for it, nor did he harden his heart against God.  He didn't wrack himself in guilt.  When confronted by Nathan, He immediately took his situation straight to God.
