Calvinism

I offer this as an introductory survey of the system of Theology known as the ‘Five Points Of Calvinism’, showing it to be a claimed historic system constituting distinct and important ‘Biblical’ doctrine. by Frank Worgan. Calvinism

Dispensationalism

The word “Premillennial” is a combination of two words, “pre” and “Millennium.” Pre means before and Millennium is the word for one thousand. It is a religious term which has reference to the belief in certain dramatic events that are supposed to happen before Christ returns to earth to establish his kingdom over which he will rule for a 1000 literal years, on the literal throne of David, in the literal city of Jerusalem. Dispensationalism!


Eschatology

We may not understand how God made us from the dust of the ground. But we know that all things are possible with Him. The body is not in the image of God although we have been made in his likeness. Some have supposed our physical image is like the spiritual image of God. Jesus said that “God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” Spirit would not have the appearance of flesh. Eschatology! ‘Last Things’


False Prophets And Apostasy

‘Religion is the opiate of the masses,’ Karl Marx once said. Never in man’s existence here on earth has he failed to worship the true living God or some type of deity to explain why nature works. In ancient history, we read of gods and goddesses that represent war ‘Pan’, love ‘Venus’, music ‘Apollo’, wine ‘Bacchus’, fire ‘Vulcan’, and the dead ‘Anubis, ‘Egypt’. But in the beginning, man worshiped God alone. False Prophets And Apostasy


God’s Man

The story is told that Diogenes the Greek philosopher walked through the streets of Athens in broad daylight with a lantern in hand, looking for a real man – one who was honest and brave. Diogenes replied “They are pygmies. I am looking for real men.” Jeremiah urged his people to “run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem; see in her open places if you can find a man, if there is anyone who executes judgment, who seeks the truth” (Jeremiah 5:1). The same remains true today. We need Godly men. What is a godly man like? God’s Man


God, The Father

There is but one God, but he is a compound ONE composed of three persons. God is one essence, one substance with one purpose and one desire. God is spirit. Not a superhuman with physical form as we have. It is difficult to discuss God with accuracy. Our words express ideas. The only words we have are finite. Obviously, finite words are inadequate to describe an infinite God Standing first in the Godhead is God the Father. God, The Father


How Great Thou Art

Seemingly most people never seem to give God a single thought on this special day. To many, Sunday is considered a day you can do anything you want to do from watching a ball game on TV, mowing the lawn, sleeping late, go fishing, visit friends and relatives, etc., etc. In our present contemporary culture, many religious gropes are seeing a decline of attendance. Many feel America has now reached what they call the post Christian age. How Great Thou Art


Instrumental Music

The apostle Paul said, “I will sing with spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding” (1 Corinthians 14:15). Singing praises to God! What a privilege! What a joy! God has given each of us a voice with which to praise Him. Singing which comes from our hearts, going to the heart of God, is a wonderful experience. The N. T. was originally written in Greek. The word “singing” in our English translations is from the Greek N. T. word ‘psallo’. Literally it meant, “Plucking the heart strings.” When we use our voices to praise God we are plucking our heart strings. Not only is God pleased but it can bring the Christian great joy too. Plucking The Heart Strings


Marriage And Divorce

Often people with a divorce are not made to feel welcome in a congregation, or else they are completely ignored. In many instances, those who are suspect are not permitted to be involved in any leadership roles such as teaching, leading prayer or leading singing, etc. On the other hand, some are welcome. Their monetary contributions are gladly accepted. They may even be looked upon as “faithful members.” At the same time, they are treated as second class members. Those with a divorce in their background seemingly never escape the stigma that is attached to divorce, even if they are considered the innocent victims. The Divorce And Remarriage Dilemma!


Pain And Suffering

We all know that when comes to understanding pain, everyone has their own fair share of hurts in this life, some are afflicted upon us by others and there are times when our pain in self-afflicted. In this series of sermons we will look to see if it’s possible for those hurts to help us grow in our relationship and walk with God, we’ll try to understand why pain exists in our life and if you’re struggling with the pain of worry, loss, loneliness, or bitterness, I’m sure you find a blessing in these sermons. Pain And Suffering


The Church

How many times have you heard someone say, ‘I’m going to church!’

Seems to me that many people, especially some Christians, have lost the meaning of who and what the ‘church’ is, which is really sad. The Church


The Scriptures

Knowing how the Bible came together will certainly help us have more confidence in the Scriptures we read. The rational support for the assumed existence of God and the rational support for one’s faith is good. Because the principal cause of religious unbelief is a valid crisis in valid authority. It starts from one’s beliefs in saying that the Bible is infallible and the rejection or acceptance of that statement. The Scriptures


Little Foxes

There is no doubt that some sins seem to have greater consequences than others. You might tell a lie to someone and that would not be as endangering as if you murdered that person. If you robbed a bank you would end up in prison whereas being jealous of someone who has more money than you would not give you a prison sentence. However sin is sin regardless of its proportions or nature. A particular sin may not get you arrested but just because society may condone or even approve a certain conduct doe’s not mean God sanctions or removes the consequences of sin. Little Foxes


Salvation

Salvation should be at the front of most people’s minds, its just a tragedy that there are many erroneous teaches about how a person is saved in the first place. We know we receive God’s free gift, the Holy Spirit, at our baptism but how does this all tie together with grace and works? Can we be sure we’re saved? Salvation


The Life Of Christ

The life of Christ is the most important event in the history of the world. Every Bible student should obtain as clear an understanding of the leading events as possible and associate them with the places where they occurred. The chronological arrangement of these events is of inestimable value to any student. The Life Of Christ  

The Life Of David

David was a man so important it takes sixty-six chapters from the Old Testament to tell the story of his life. In addition there are his many Psalms. His name is mentioned fifty-nine times in the New Testament. He is the only person in the Bible called “a man after God’s own heart.” After Saul had been rejected by God Samuel a Judge, prophet and priest said to Saul, “But now your kingdom shall not endure. The Lord has sought out for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has appointed him as ruler over His people.” We will see that the chapters on David’s life do not focus so much on his history as on David’s heart. The Life Of David  

The Life Of Moses

To make this study only a series of events in the life of Moses is not our purpose. While events are important we are also interested in Moses as a man. Our study will focus not only on events but His character. We will be looking for such things as his responsibilities, his leadership, and his manner of life.

We will be looking at the make-up of one of the greatest men to ever live on this earth. The Life Of Moses


The Lord’s Supper

It is Thursday, the 14th day of the Jewish month of Nisan. This was the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb. Faithful Jewish worshipers gathered in Jerusalem from all over the Roman Empire. This feast celebrated God’s deliverance of Israel from Egyptian bondage. The meal consisted of roasted lamb, unleavened bread, wine, a dipping sauce made from bitter herbs and pureed fruit.  The patriarch of the family would then tell the story of how God delivered Israel from their Egyptian bondage. A Most Remarkable Supper


The Vine And The Branches

This is another parable of Jesus. The context will reveal that these were among the final words that Christ spoke to his disciples just before his betrayal and trials. They form part of his farewell address. This parable teaches that while separated bodily from them there would continue to be a spiritual connection between them and Jesus. This connection is a vital one—each is a part of the other. The disciple is in Christ and Christ is in the disciple. The theme then is the relationship between Christ and His disciples. The Vine And The Branches


Where Are The Dead?

Since the beginning of time men have stood in awe and fear of death, pondering its mysteries, desiring to know what happens after death. To understand death it is important to understand our origin. An incorrect understanding of our origin will lead to an incorrect understanding of our destiny. Where Are The Dead?

DAILY BIBLE VERSE

"And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."

Philippians 4:19
