I’m So Tired!

Since suffering from a stroke in March, 2022, I have been on the road to recovery.  I am, however, physically tired.  Each day I get more, and more, back to normal (whatever that may be now).  Many of the things I used to do are no longer done, or are donw with great strain.  There ...

Just My Imagination?

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis 6:5) Before I go any further, I just want to pass along this disclaimer: This article is not about the “Nephilim.” I repeat: This is not about ...

A New Tank?

Sometimes I don’t know exactly what I’m going to write about until I actually sit at my desk, in front of my computer.  In this case I’m at my seldom used desk at our actual church building. This is a rare event, indeed!  With the advent of the automobile, and electronic communications the church office ...

Where Two Or Three Are Gathered…

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20) One of the most abused Scriptures, out of many, is Matthew 18:20.  This verse is used so often as a verse that proves that the Holy Spirit is present “when two or three are ...

Faith-FULL!

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. (1 Corinthians 4:1-2) One of the most important things for anyone that ministers, no matter their role, is that they be faithful.  As ...

Marriage: On the Rock, or On the Rocks?

Marriage between men and women (there is no other way) is an institution which has for it’s establishment God, Himself.  He created Eve as a helpmeet for Adam, so that he would not be alone. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an ...

Writer’s Block

I think it would be hard to believe that someone who holds before him “the unsearchable riches of Christ (Ephesians 3:8),” that have been revealed, would have a tough time thinking of something to write. Yet, it does happen on occasion. And, it’s not a bad thing, at all! I encourage young preachers not to ...

The Amazing Body

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made ...

Ye Have the Poor With You Always

And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. – Mark 14:6-7 KJV One of the biggest trends happening in the church is ...

People Are People

One of the realities that is often so hard for people to fathom is that each and every person in the world is, in fact, an individual.  Individual habits,  individual appearances,  individual diets, even individual preferences of clothing and automobiles.  There are no two people alike – even identical twins!  There is no single cure-all ...

LOVE AND DOCTRINE

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not ...

Just My Imagination?

Maybe it’s just my imagination? But, it seems there is much more backbiting, and bickering, now happening between like minded Believers. Well, let me take that opening statement back.  It’s not my imagination.  It is fact!  There is, after all, nothing new under the sun. You see; there is something inherent in every single person ...

An Endless Supply of Grace

Grace is an incredible thing. It is freely given by the Lord, and should be freely received, and utilized, by the Believer. It is the source of our strength; the very energy of our lives. I know that right now you are thinking of a wonderful old hymn. The “Wonderful Grace of Jesus” is something ...

Begotten

When studying Scripture, the accurate definition of its words is critical to understanding their meaning. Also, of prime importance, is the context of any words under consideration. For example, we understand that the word “salvation” does not always refer to being forgiven of one’s sins and thereby justified before God.  In Exodus 14:13, Moses says ...

Jesus Christ, Raised from the Dead

2 Timothy 2:8 – Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel: The resurrection of Christ is a truth that is based both upon faith and history. The historical events that led to the crucifixion of Jesus, His subsequent entombment and bodily resurrection the third ...

Christ Died for the Ungodly

Rom. 5:6-9 For when we were without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet per-adventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. ...

Before we can deal with the issues of life and knowing the doctrine that God gives us to handle these things. First thing we must have settled is where you are going ...
