Submission to the Scriptures is submission to God, and rebellion against the Scriptures is rebellion against God. The Bible can no more fail, falter, or err, than God himself can fail, falter, or err. This high view of Scripture as the inerrant divinely-spirited word of God has been the position of Christians from the beginning.
All my sermons are free. You are free to listen to a live recording of the messages I record. They are not edit for better quality for radio or TV or for sales. What the people heard is what is on the recording. But sometimes Charity will say, “You are not going to put that on YouTube for the world to see are you?” She says, “You know Alana Ayers (might) is going to hear that don’t you.” (Well I put Alana name in there, because I would only say good things about her for an illustration)
The Christian Race: Hebrews 12:1-2
(outline I first used when I was 17 years old)
The Personalities at the Race – – “A cloud of witnesses”
The Preparation for the Race – – “Lay aside every weight.”
The Persistence in the Race – – “Run with patience”
The Purpose of the Race – – “Looking Unto Jesus.”
And I still have the original outline I used to preach in the church Dad was the pastor in Roanoke Virginia in 1964.
Does you belief system hold up to reality of your life. Can people say that what you believe works by how you live what you believe?
What a blessing to be with young adults who know who they are in Christ, and love the Lord and love to serve Him with their lives. Alex Harris and his future wife Kristen Summers and a new young lady we met for the first time, Caitlyn Patterson whose Mom was in our youth group at Calvary Baptist in Connersville, IN. Angie Ferguson Harris. They made an overnight stop over and now are on their way back to Lynchburg VA. Love those young adults. Seem like our kids.
“Scripture is a sword (not a cotton swab), and it needs to be fully unsheathed before it can be put to its intended use.”—John MacArthur. Sometimes we need a sharp shock of the truth before we wake up out of our sleep about our sinful life.
You usually don’t know if its God’s at first. Sometimes you might think, no its not His will, and then five years later you can see that God was in the events in your life. I am glad that I didn’t quit when I first question the decision that we have made over the years.
Well we have 260 “Friends” on Facebook. Sounds like the church I have had a rather small group of people in our church as compared with others. But I can say we have had come of the best people in the world in our churches. We have been blessed that the Lord has allowed us to have such great friends over the course of our ministry. I would not trade the experience for another.
I think the hardest thing for a preacher and teacher is seeing that so many people just don’t believe the Bible is really God speaking and so many just do not apply what God is saying for their living their lives.
I remember that when I was from seven my brother and I would go over to the church and act like we were Billy Graham and Oliver B . Greene . I would preach a while and then Don would preach. And I have been preaching every since. But then I was just playing preaching. Didn’t know at 7 I would be preaching.
When I see Christ on that day, “Absent from the body and present with the Lord” My desire is that the Lord will say, “Welcome, you have been faithful in my service, you never quit, you never gave up, you passed the trials set before you. You have been faithful over my Church that I gave you to be their Shepherd, now you are ready to serve Me for eternity.” Want that be wonderful to be a servant for the Lord for ever?
Having a general knowledge God will not lead you to the truth about God. The Jews had a lot of knowledge but not the truth. The truth is found in Christ the Lord. Those who believe and obey Him will learn the truth that leads salvation. Romans 10:2
“FOR THIS I HAVE JESUS” Life here on this earth at this time will have many twist and turns, good times and rough times. In all life’s experiences, there are four words that we should remember: “FOR THIS I HAVE JESUS>”
My joy is teaching the Word. Romans 10 “Running Fast The Wrong Way: Full of Zeal, Hard of Hearing.” Two kinds of “knowledge” “gnosis” general knowledge and “episgnosis” exact, complete knowledge. Israel had knowledge but did not lead to salvation. Do you have the right knowledge that leads to the truth that leads to salvation?
Deadline.com previously reported the Robertsons got a huge salary bump for Season 4. They are reportedly raking in more than $200,000 per episode, divided between nine adults and 11 kids, which is about five time more than before. Nice Christian group of men wouldn’t you say? We Independent Fundamental Baptist promote good Christian dress. Ouch!
“I Tell You The Truth.” Jesus said in John 8:45 and Jesus is the full truth” John 1:14 and Jesus is the Way and the Truth, and the Life John 14:6. Don’t be ignorant, and lack of knowledge, learn and know the truth about Christ and Live. The sermon this Sunday at ROJB
When it comes to Updates: Few read, some only look at photos. Few take the time to listen to a video or a sermon or music. We read what we are interested in don’t we. Few comment, , few of us click like, most just look. Some can’t get enough. Some just want to post stuff they like and are not interested in others. But there are those who just like everything everybody post. Some are blessed, some get a laugh, some love the photos and comments.
