WODEN, Australia -- Wade Cox's Christian Churches of God has a statement about Wikipedia, the Internet-based encyclopedia, posted at his Web site, www.ccg.org.
Coordinator General Cox is critical of Wikipedia and expresses his opinion that the encyclopedia doesn't get its facts right.
"Some of the views expressed in Wikipedia are just plain wrong such as the article on Shemita [year of release] which is based on a rabbinical 49-year jubilee which is unbiblical, unhistorical and based on the post-Temple period rabbinical reconstruction ..."
Unfortunately, he said, Wikipedia's editorial policy is "under the control of a variable committee and its editors are often unqualified in the subject they edit."

PORT AUSTIN, Mich. -- In July 2014 the "homeless ministry" founded by Norman Edwards and friends will have been in operation for four years, Mr. Edwards announced.
In an article in the winter 2014 Shepherd's Voice magazine, he said 255 "guests" have stayed with the Port Austin Bible Campus (PABC), which includes 106 men, 89 women and 60 children.
Their average length of stay is 80 days.
"At present we only have 12 people here," he said, "but more are planning to come."
The greatest need for "emergency housing" occurs in early spring and late fall, he said.
He mentioned the need for "Christian mentors" to assist in the operation of the ministry.
