Savage Death

April 3rd, 2020

A little over two years ago I preached a sermon for the first and only time titled “Savage Death.” I have thought of this message many times and under many different circumstances including our current moment of crisis.  I hope that a reflection on the cross will help put our world, purpose, service, and affliction in their proper perspective. May God bless all who face times of testing in this difficult moment and may He receive all glory due Him for His marvelous gift in Christ. May the people of God continue to worship and remember the Son for the grace He poured out at Calvary.

Fear: Our Greatest Enemy

March 27th, 2020

Fear is one of the greatest weapons the Devil holds and wields and is a blasphemous attempt to usurp that which properly belongs to God.  Please open your Bible and follow along as we address a pressing issue in light of the pandemic that has befallen our nation/world.

Please share this message and feel free to distribute as you wish.

Calm in the Midst of the Storm

March 18th, 2020

In this episode we have dispensed with our regular format and content to provide a message that speaks to the chaos that is going on in our world.  With all that is happening it is easy to lose faith and focus on God, so we want to take a moment and provide some thoughts from the Bible that will hopefully provide some comfort in dark times.  God bless.

Top 3 Reads of 2020: So Far

March 2nd, 2020

So far in 2020 I have found three articles that have been extremely helpful in my studies and today I want to share them with you.  

 

The first can be found in Gordon J. Wenham's Commentary on the Book of Numbers.  The section discussed is found in Wenham's introduction under the headings of Theology and Christian Usage.

The second article is David Dorsey's article titled The Law of Moses and the Christian.

The third article is Stephen G. Dempster's article Exodus and Biblical Theology: On Moving into the Neighborhood with a New Name.

The latter two articles are available for free download in PDF format through the following link: https://www.christianresearcher.com/articles/top-3-reads-of-2020-so-far

Biblical Theology: Definition, Methodologies, and Proponents

February 10th, 2020

One of the greatest influences in becoming a "Whole Bible Christian" is the practice of Biblical Theology.  But what is Biblical Theology?  How is it defined?  What makes it distinct? How is it practiced?  Who are its advocates?  These and other important questions are answered in this week's episode.  We hope this introduction will provoke listeners to investigate a critically important area of Bible study and research.

A transcript containing the material presented in today's episode can be downloaded through the following link. We hope the transcript will assist listeners in further disseminating the material.
