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 ...

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.

D.E.A.D!

The major focus in so much of what is called Christianity today (The magazine is indeed a correct representative of Christianity Today) is focused on me, myself, and I, rather than on Christ Jesus.  One of the most popular teachers / authors is Joel Osteen, whose bestselling book, “Your Best Life Now” continues to be ...

Look at What We Have!

Text: Romans 5:1-5 Therefore… we are about to encounter some divine information concerning the results of what God has previously revealed to us regarding justification by faith (See Romans 3:21-26).  Having established that justification cannot be obtained by one’s character, lineage, by the Law, ordinances, or religious ritual, but only by placing our faith in ...

Filled with All Joy and Peace

We therefore have a great expectation that isn’t simply produced to match ordinary worldly happiness, but that exceeds in extraordinary joy.

Abound in the God of Hope

Although there are many facets to His hope, conclusively, He grants Himself. He is THE GOD OF HOPE. As such where else can we go?, to whom can we turn?

Biblical Clarity in the Face of COVID-19

The spectrum of response the church is giving to the virus and its’ effect is manifesting the sleeping giant of error couched in the church.  In other words, the Coronavirus is manifesting a greater problem and that is the doctrinal array of error that resides in the church.  The confusion has been reflected in the ...
