Boredom

Saturday, July 22nd, 2017

One word I hate to hear from anyone is “bored,” especially from young people. Very often, when someone says he is bored, it means he’s not being entertained. He doesn’t have enough productive to do in order to stay interested himself on his own. I also hear the word “distraction.” Men look for distraction. What […]

Perspective

Saturday, July 15th, 2017

When you look at the entire universe, the earth is very insignificant. A spacecraft photographed earth from Saturn’s rings and it is a speck of light with the moon as an even smaller speck. You would not judge this planet as being that important. It is most important in the vastness of space, because God […]

Live By Every Word

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Jesus said in Matthew 4:4 to Satan that we live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Every word. Scripture is sufficient and God expects us to live everything in it, even the parts where we must apply principles. We are required to apply the principles. We don’t just throw our […]

Indignation

Saturday, July 1st, 2017

John 2 records the first passover in Jerusalem of Jesus’ after He began His public ministry. Jesus cleanses the temple, His Father’s house, because the religious leaders had made it a house of merchandise, instead of one of prayer. Someone should understand a house of prayer as a place of fellowship with God. However, God’s […]

It Must Be Faith

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Ultimately everything that is important, what is eternal, the answer even for everything in this age, comes by faith. It must be faith. One, our abilities are flawed, our sight is muddled. We cannot count on us, are not going to see it right. Two, the forensics have been trampled. We do not enter a […]

Keeping God’s Words

Saturday, May 27th, 2017

Several times in the upper room discourse, you might notice that Jesus said something like the imperative in John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” Same chapter, v. 21, then says, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me,” v. 23, “If a man love me, he […]

The Heart

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

The concept of heart is woven into English culture. This comes from the Bible, because it’s from there that people understand the existence of and importance of the heart. I’m not talking about the pulsating muscle in the middle of the chest, although they relate to one another in a certain fashion. The two words, […]

Baptism By Immersion for Believers Only into the Church

Saturday, May 6th, 2017

No saved person in the New Testament refuses baptism by immersion. A person is saved and then he is baptized. It is an act of obedience. Jesus told John, Suffer it to be so to fulfill all righteousness. Going unbaptized is unrighteous as a practice, according to Jesus. Paul uses the terminology, baptized into Christ’s […]

Just Because a Lot of People

Friday, April 28th, 2017

A common view of the world is that since a certain number or a whole lot of people think a certain way, then it must be true, the sense here being that whether something is true is based upon a majority vote. Most of the history of the world saw nations that did not think […]

The Superiority of Scriptural Evidence for the Resurrection

Friday, April 21st, 2017

If I had preached a traditional Easter sermon today, I would have preached about the Bible as evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Believing in Jesus Christ is as much or more than anything, believing in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The defeat of death could be described as our salvation. If Jesus defeated […]
