The Knowledge of God Obscured

Saturday, July 20th, 2019

In John 4:22, the Lord Jesus said to a Samaritan woman at a well, speaking of the Samaritans, “Ye worship ye know not what.” They did not know who God was, so they did not know whom they were worshiping. If we do not know who God is, then we will not know how to […]

The Future of Our Country

Friday, July 12th, 2019

We celebrated July 4th, Independence Day, this last week. Following along with that theme this Sunday after it, I want to draw your attention to another tension that exists related to the future of our country. On one hand, we see a steep decline in the way of fast arriving destruction. Maybe it will or […]

Christian Founding of the Nation

Saturday, July 6th, 2019

This week is Independence Day on Thursday and this last week, Monday, my wife and I went to Plymouth, Massachusetts to visit “Plimouth Plantation,” the second successful English colony in America. Most of the founders of this colony today we know as the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims strongly believed that the Church of England, and the […]

Son Of

Saturday, June 29th, 2019

“Son of” is found in scripture 1,602 times, and it is followed by the name of the father. In the Hebrew, it is the word, ben, like the original president of Israel in 1948, David Ben Gurion. The “ben” means “son of.” “Gurion” would be the father. The name of the father is listed because […]

Church Talks

Friday, June 14th, 2019

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conferences is a media organization that posts talks online for free distribution under the slogan “ideas worth spreading.” TED was conceived by Richard Saul Wurman in February 1984 as a conference and has been held annually since 1990. TED’s early emphasis was on technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley […]

The Goodness of God Motivates

Saturday, June 8th, 2019

The Psalmist writes in Psalm 27:13, “I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” Then in Psalm 33:5, “the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 2:4, “Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness […]

Remedy for Apostasy

Saturday, June 1st, 2019

As you consider how hard it is to remain consistent and strong in your faith in Christ, you should remember the state of the faith at certain points in history. Everyone in the world, except for eight souls, rejected the truth in the day of Noah. A vast majority of Israel turned away at various […]

What Rather than Why

Saturday, May 25th, 2019

As a parent, sometimes I found myself asking, “Why?” I’ve taught that “why” is not the most important question. Ask, “What?” “Why” is important to God. He wants us to serve Him with gladness, but scripture puts a priority on the what and let me give you two arguments for that. Philippians 1:15-18, “Some indeed […]

Scriptural or Non-Scriptural

Saturday, May 18th, 2019

The list of possible non-scriptural issues is much, much bigger than the list of scriptural ones. In other words, we’ve got a lot of liberty. A lot. I could make up a list past the moon of non-scriptural actions. What kind of furniture polish do you use? Do you hang landscape art instead of portrait? […]

Continuing

Saturday, May 11th, 2019

John 8:31 says, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed.” Believers will continue. However, believers must continue. You know you’ll continue, but you also must continue, so let’s continue. Let’s do what it takes to continue. 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore, […]
