Gospel preacher. The following appeared in the Gospel Advocate: "James B. Armor was born on July 12, 1829, and died on May 8, 1903. No, he did not die; for the faithful in Christ can never die. He was "born again"--out of corruption into incorruption, out of death into life, out of mortality into immortality. Jesus says: "Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." A prince in Israel has gone from us. Brother Armor was a man of faith, prayer, and good works. The widow's wail, the orphan's cry--in fact, every sign of distress--touched a tender chord in his soul and found ready a helping hand and a cheering word. The full extent of his benevolence was known only to himself and God. He was a missionary man in the true sense of the word, making the ministration of the Philippians to Paul his model. He believed the church to be God's missionary society. Though opposed to other organizations than the church for doing God's work, he did not sulk in camp; though a poor man in this world's goods, he often cheered the lonely missionary with his money and with words of encouragement. With him God's word was suprema lex, and he verily believed the command. "Go….teach all nations," to be binding upon every child of God. Brother Armor was an earnest, godly, Christian man. For more than fifty years he had been a member of the church of Christ; and for the past twenty years, when not unavoidably hindered, he has not missed meeting with the brethren on Lord's days to worship "as it is written." His wife preceded him to the grave more than a year; his son, our beloved M. H. Armor, survives him to carry on the work to which his dying mother consecrated him. We shall miss Brother Armor in our homes, in the congregation, in his benefactions; most of all, we shall miss his living example of faith, hope, and love." --- W. A. Crum, Gospel Advocate, June 18, 1903, page 394.
