    Study and Study Some More

    Study and Study Some More – Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers were given to the church, although teachers get very little recognition or level of importance. That being said, and above the aforementioned, is individual soul liberty. If you study to shew yourself approved, you may be surprised by what truths you’ll learn that may not…

    Baptists–Same or Different

    Same or different — While researching a topic, I ran across some thoughts about the IFB church that rang loudly within my being. This isn’t a ringing of something exciting and new but of remembrance and concern. The IFB church is not a denomination, as we’d agree. The IFB church is an autonomous, local, and…

  • Spiritual Separation or Preference

    Spiritual Separation or Preference

    Spiritual Separation or Preference? It is of great concern that our churches are filled with preaching based on preference. That is, a pastor, deacon, evangelist, or teacher may interfere with the autonomy of a home by pushing their preference instead of what is clearly supported by God’s Word. Furthermore, the personal preferences of a church…

    Mature Christians

    Maturity isn’t perfection but the realization of imperfection Mature Christians – “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”  1 Corinthians 13:11 Mature Christians Should:   Manifest a forgiving spirit:  Ephesians 4:32…

  • Such As Keep

    Such As Keep

    Such As Keep – Sometimes as Christians we overlook the obvious in God’s Word, as this allows us to protect what we “think we know.” However, the phrase in Psalm 25:10 “unto such as keep” was raised up from the page by the Holy Spirit. The whole verse says this, “All the paths of the LORD [are]…

  • Serve While Waiting

    Serve While Waiting

    Noah– waited 120 years before the predicted rains arrived. Abraham waited 25 years for a promised son. Joseph– waited 14 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Job– waited perhaps a lifetime, 60-70 years, for God’s justice. God prepares leaders in a slow cooker, not in a microwave oven. More important than the…

  • Why the USA is Failing — Fault of Christians

    Why the USA is Failing — Fault of Christians

    I believe whole heartily that God’s Word can stand on its own without our meager attempts to defend It. The Bible (KJV – King Jesus Version), takes our poor attempts at the exposition and performs a work despite our self-proclamation of achievement.  Thus, the USA is faltering because failure is commonplace and acceptable for the…

  • Suddenly There Came

    Acts 2: 1,2 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” It doesn’t take a theologian, whatever that is, to discern…

  • “Christian” School

    Are the Christian schools in our region actually Christian? Right vs wrong, left vs right, black vs white, on vs off, popular vs unpopular, subjective vs objective ∞ For the purpose of this post, objectiveness is the driving force intertwined betwixt the text. Are the Christian schools in our region actually Christian? Colossians 1:18 “And…

  • High Rise Christians

    High Rise Christians

    Thought for the day: RISING HIGH — It seems that too many Christians have a piece of property, at the foot of the Cross, that rises far above others around them—-High Rise Christians Romans 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of…
