About Dr. Maslin


On April 15, 2017, Roger W. Maslin, at the age of 92, passed from this life to be with his Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and saved loved ones and friends already in heaven.

In a computer and cyberspace age, he did not feel that his ministry should end at retirement or death.  So he asked that the family maintain this website as long as it is feasible financially and otherwise.

My father wrote many more devotional entries which I have not had time to post during the last year of his life but will begin posting again after a time of grieving.

My father and I thank you for visiting and referring your Bible student friends to this website.  Godspeed.

The purpose of this website has been to share my witness of what I believe and why I believe it concerning the Christian faith and the way Christians and the churches practice that faith. In doing so, I have tried to challenge my readers to rethink some popular but erroneous notions of Bible teachings. I have tried my best to be true to God’s Word in every instance. Any failure was not intentional. I hope it has caused my readers to grow in grace and the knowledge of God and what He requires of us. For every believer there awaits a glorious future. I hope you are one of those. If not, I urge you to acknowledge your need of Christ, and turn to Him, receiving the gift of eternal life. Thank you readers from all over the world.

Roger Maslin was born and reared on a farm in the Appalachian area of Pennsylvania. After graduation from high school, he pursued and enjoyed a thorough theological education in five different institutions. In 1948, he married his college sweetheart and they raised two children, the pride and joy of his life. Among his pastorates were three Florida Baptist Convention churches where he spent 28 years of ministry. They were special and each one involved multiple building programs. Those churches were Westside Baptist Church in Daytona Beach, First Baptist Church in Dunedin, and Westview Baptist Church in Sanford.  At the age of 80, in the providence of God, with the encouragement of family, he began writing for publishing. At the age of 90, he published three books: A Manual on the Millennium, Dealing with the Difficult, and Think on These Things. He also published three e-books: Fascination with Seven, Feed the Flock, and Preach the Word.  These were collections of some of his sermons.  With the assistance of the computer skills of his daughter, he was able to set up a personal website where he continued his most recent writings at drmaslinwrites.com.

  1. Hi Dr Maslin! Nice looking website! I bet Cindy had a lot to do with putting it together. I will forward the link to my friends and family. I’m enjoying your latest book “Dealing with the difficult”. It is educational, and inspirational. Blessings to you and your family.

  2. Greetings, Dr. Maslin,
    My name is Jeanne and I attended — Church when you were the pastor there. I just wanted to thank you for preaching the Word and being faithful to its message. When I first became a Christian, I had come from a Charismatic church which was spiritually abusive. I cannot recall ever having biblically-based sermons delivered nor do I recall ever being encouraged to study the Bible. However, when I came to — Church, I encountered a completely different story. You were unafraid to open up the Word and teach it in such a manner that helped me to finally come to know the Lord in such a powerful way. Not only that, but you challenged me to dig deeply into the Word and not just to read it superficially. There are three great men of God that have helped me know and love both God and His Word: You, RC Sproul (I was exposed to his teaching through Westview), and John MacArthur. If it were not for your wonderful expository teaching, I would not have the strong foundation I have today. I just wanted to thank you again and let you know how much you have meant to me and my learning. Many blessings to you,
    Jeanne (some details omitted in published comment for privacy)

  3. I am sorry to hear of your father’s passing. He was very instrumental in me desiring to become a student of the Bible. My pastor, Dr. RC Sproul passed away in December of 2017. I consider these two men to be giants of the faith who were never ashamed of the gospel but preached the gospel until being called home. I will look forward to seeing Dr. Maslin again in Heaven.
    Blessings to you and your family.
