Beware Of False Teachers And False Doctrine

The Bible is the most amazing book that has ever been written.  Time after time, situations of life arise, and the Bible always has the answers that we need.  With that being stated, I wonder just how often some people even read the Bible.  I know that the masses of humanity are largely ignorant of

Scriptural Worship-Part Four

In no way should The Lord’s Supper become a common meal.  Apparently, that is what happened amongst the congregation in Corinth.  Some members of the congregation were not observing the memorial appropriately.  The brethren there were told, “When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord’s supper.  For in

Scriptural Worship-Part Three

When addressing the church in Corinth, Paul made it clear how he felt about preaching.  He stated, “For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:  not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.  For the preaching of the cross is to them that

Justice And Vengeance

No matter how many times I read it, the Sermon on the Mount is still so powerful and useful.  Whether it is the beatitudes at the beginning, or “the wise man building his house on the rock” at the end, the Sermon on the Mount still stands as a masterpiece.  Let us take the opportunity

More Preaching

          We live in a time when “old fashioned” preaching is ridiculed and disliked by so many.  Some, so called preachers, have traded the Scriptures for fables, “feel good stories”, jokes and the like.  There is a trend among some preachers to speak only “positively”.  The idea of repentance and change
