(New Posting) Stewardship

Posted 04/22/2020

Money or having money is not immoral. Money is amoral (neither moral nor immoral per Webster). How money is obtained or used affect the person not the money. In many churches one of the most delicate subject to preach about is money. I do not go into all the bad things associated with money for it is not caused by the money but the “love” for money (1 Timothy 6:10). Everything in this world belongs to God including money. Those that have it are only steward of what belongs to God the same as everything else (Psalms 24:1, 50:12). I hope this series gives a new light on money and possessions.

(New Posting) The Inerrancy of The Bible

Posted 04/22/2020

The Bible has always been under attack regarding its authenticity, inerrancy and perceived contradictions. I remember back in the eighties there was a big argument as to the inerrancy of the Bible. Those on the side of inerrancy believes that the Bible is without error, infallibility, or contradictions. Those on the other side believed that the bible contained many contradictions and errors. The sad part is that the mass of people believed one sided or the others blindly. That is without finding out for themselves. In this series I tried to address some of the most common charges I have heard concerning the inerrancy, errancy and contradictions. I looked at difficult passages and questions like, “who did the children of Adam and Eve marry? And a secular question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?”

Spiritual Gifts

Posted 01/29/2020

As I mentioned before, spiritual gifts and Spiritual office are two different things. Spiritual gifts are often given to assist us in our ministry of Spiritual Office.  Everyone that feels they have a spiritual gift is not automatically qualified to hold a Spiritual Office.  The same is true for those that have been given a Spiritual Office is not necessarily the one with the greatest Spiritual Gifts.  I hope this clears up a few things.

Spiritual Office

Posted 01/29/2020

Spiritual Office i try to point out the difference between "Spiritual Gifts" and "Spiritual Office". I have heard them treated as being the same as "Spiritual Gifts". these two are related but not the same nor are they from the same source. Nor do they serve the same purpose. Why is this important? We are told to identify our spiritual gifts and to identify and seek some. If we seek Evangelism it is a Spiritual Office with its own requirements as supposed to being a Spiritual Gift. I hope this helps.

In the Fullness of Time

Posted 11/22/2019

"In the fullness of time". These word will be spoken often as the Galatians 4:4 Christmas passage will be read. It is important for us Christians to understand that God does not operate in a panic. we see things in the moment but God see things in the present and in the future. All throughout history we see god exhibit one of His greatest character traits , that is "long suffering". But history shows us that His long suffering is not unlimited and in His time He will act. Rewarding some and dispensing justice to others, I believe that God is waiting on the fullness of time before the Rapture comes and this time is winding up.

Can Our Salvation Be Lost?

Posted 11/22/2019

Eternal security, also known as "once saved, always saved", is the belief that from the moment anyone becomes a Christian, they will be saved from hell, and will not lose salvation. Not all Theologians, Bible Teachers and Bible commentators agree that there is no way for a Christian to ever lose their salvation. I was taught this doctrine for years, but I later began to study on my own and have come to a different conclusion. My goal and objective is not to convince you to think like me but to encourage you to seek your own answers. As always I try to include multiple views on the subject.

The Essentials of Our Faith

POSTED 9/16/2019

No one is born directly into adulthood or adult maturity, either physically or spiritually, that takes place through a growth process. If we do not grow, we become like children vulnerable to every wind and doctrine.​

Ephesians 4: 14 (NKJV); 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

The warning is loud and clear in Galatians 1:6-9 which is the basis for this series. I have included a link to my Resource and References if you choose to review them.

Why does God Allow Evil and Suffering?

POSTED 9/16/2019

If God is omnipotent, if God is loving and good. If God is all powerful and can create a world without evil or rid the world of evil and He doesn’t do it then He is not good and He is not loving. If God did not create or generate evil, where did evil come or originate from?  These questions along with others are fair question because we all know that evil exist. I try to answer many of the questions as I understand the answers to be.  I have included a link to my Resource and References if you choose to review them.

Six Things, Plus one, That God Hates

POSTED 12/5/2018

There is always someone talking about how God is love and that is very true. (1 John 4:8,16). But we must realize that God is not a one dimensional being. God truly has a love that only a God like Him can have, but God also has wrath (Hebrews 10:31). God loves and God hates. If we love God we will love the things He loves and the things He hates. The following series Sermon Notes cover the six things plus 1 that God really hates.
