Truth in Palmyra

by Robert Brock Thursday, June 27 One of the Things God Hates Proverbs 6:19 “A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren,” Proverbs 6:19. Since Christ is the source of all truth (John 14:6), a liar throws up the red flag to God whenever he opens his mouth. A man’s […]

John's Bible

Historical Background: The Bible doesn’t provide every detail about the historical background of a certain passage, though everything that is necessary is.  It isn’t necessary to know that during the time of this writing, Emperor Nero was in power who was particularly hostile towards Christians, committing them to the gladiator arena and blaming them for […]

An Owl Among Ruins

I have what some would probably think is a snooty attitude about guitars in church. One would think all that need be said has been said. Still, I have never succeeded in getting across the real reason for my objection. It is not merely a matter of taste. I think it is a matter of […]

Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” This verse is one of a longer salutation that Paul gives to the church at Philippi. This letter is one of the more personal, and pointed messages of […]

Doctrine Leads to Devotion. The definition of doctrine is a belief or set of beliefs held and taught by a Church, political party, or other group. Christian bookstores typically separate “theology” books from “Christian living” books. In some ways, this reflects the way many Christians think of doctrine and the life of faith and godliness-they […]

Disciple of Christ

I’m committing The Parable of the Great Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) to memory.  There are probably ten sermons a pastor could milk from this passage. Never put Jesus to the test (v. 25).  Never justify yourself (v. 29).  Love should transcend any race, ethnicity or heritage (v. 33). Don’t pay lip service to compassion; show it […]

by Jeremiah Johnson / Wednesday, June 26, 2019 “Christ’s Sermon on the Mount makes it clear that the Lord was not prohibiting judgment, but promoting discernment.” John MacArthur could not have been more accurate in his assessment of Matthew 7:1. Again as I always implore folks to do first read things in context 7:1- 7:5 , as this […]

I remember a time when the temperature and the humidity were reported separately, and you had to do a mental calculation about how it would feel outside. Then a meteorologist developed something called the “Real Feel”, which is a combination of both numbers into one. Also known as the heat index, the “humiture”, and the […]

John 1:35 – 41; John 10:3 – 5; John 12:26; John 19:25 – 27; John 21:19 – 22 Each of the four gospels lays emphasis upon the thought of believers being ‘followers’ consistently with the presentation of Christ in the gospel. In Matthew we are to loyally follow Christ, the rejected King; in Mark, Jesus the perfect Servant has those who follow Him […]

Jesus is headed to Jerusalem and nothing is going to stop him.  His relentless mission is the subject of the Gospel in the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Year C, and along with the other readings, it invites us to ask: What do we let stop us? Jesus shows us what a free man looks […]
