Lessons from Abigail

Proverbs 2:11…”Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.” Discretion is that discernment which enables a person to judge critically of what is correct and proper, united with caution (Noah Webster’s Dictionary). And when one thinks of this, Abigail, of 1 Samuel 25, must come to the forefront. In verse 3 she is described as a “woman of good understanding” and “beautiful countenance,” compared to her husband Nabal, “churlish” (cruel, obstinate) and “evil in his doings.” In spite of her circumstances, she remained faithful to her husband, her very large household and......

Why is it “Good” Friday?

I have been asked many times throughout my ministry, why do we call the day Jesus died Good-Friday? Why is this good? Since Jesus was so brutally treated and crucified, how could this be good?

A Christian response to immigration

again, the topic of immigration fills the headlines and newscasts. We watch news broadcasts and talk shows, we listen to “experts” debate and argue our government’s immigration policies.

Politians blame the other party, past or current administrations, and sadly nothing gets done about immigration reform, and the proverbial can is once again kicked down the road. While all this blame and policy debate is happening, we seem to forget that people and......

A Sad Valentine's Day

Once again, we’ve heard the tragic news about another school shooting. This time from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where as of today (2/15/18), 17 people have lost their life. We have witnessed shootings at schools, colleges, clubs, and concerts. Also, people driving trucks into crowds, or blowing up bombs in crowded areas. The two reoccurring questions that I hear are why is this happening? or, what is wrong with people today? I do not want to bring politics or prevention into this discussion, I will leave that to......

One Should Be Understanding The Age

Developing a Christian/Biblical World-View “Understanding the Age in which we live” Introduction II Timothy 2:24-26 -We must be educated and know about the Age in which we live. -How else will we be able to effectively reach the lost around us? -We as fundamentalists cannot be stuck in the 1970’s. -We must never change our message, but our methods can (within a proper biblical context). -Ex.

Reconciliation

Developing a Christian/Biblical World-view “Understanding Reconciliation” Text: II Corinthians 5:18-21 Introduction -Why is understanding reconciliation so important to understand when discussing a CBWV? -Because most of the world has no idea that we need to be reconciled to God, or has a wrong idea of reconciliation. -In our last message from this series we saw humanities dilemma, sin! -We are hopelessly lost sinners unable to come to God on our own. -This sin separates us from Him, and we need to be reconciled. -The Biblical definition of reconciliation is; a change of......
