HE IS RISEN!!!
The Resurrection • Luke 24:1-12 (ESV) 1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 5 And as they were frightened and bowed…
Rules of Interpretation
The early Church insisted the Bible be understood by its historical & grammatical meaning and that interpretations be justified. Here are 7 Rules of Biblical Interpretation:
This is a transcript of a sermon by Pastor Doyle Williams from January 22, 2012.
Courageous – Movie Review
Courageous is produced by Sherwood Pictures, the same people that brought us Flywheel (2003), Facing the Giants (2006) & Fireproof (2008). Founded in 2002 by Alex Kendrick, Sherwood Pictures is predominantly comprised of members of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Kendrick, the associate pastor of media for Sherwood Baptist, and his brother, Stephen, have written and produced all four films put out by Sherwood Pictures. And, with the exception of Kirk Cameron in Fireproof,…
The Lord Is My Shepherd
Who doesn’t like Psalm 23? I would say that it is one of the most oft quoted Psalms in church, at funerals and we even like to quote it to ourselves a lot. To some it’s a form of comfort, because of tradition. To others it’s something that is said out of rote practice that may or may not mean anything to whomever is reciting it. I remember watching Doc several years ago, and he…
All Things Are Lawful For Me!
Yes, ALL Things! Now this isn’t the message that I was looking to write tonight, but here it is. Like it or hate it, it is what it is. I have been digging back into a set of tapes, an album actually of Dr. Scott’s teaching on Paul’s writings in the New Testament. And I think it is pertinent that I fill you in on a point of Paul’s that I do agree with. When…
Snow Covered Cars: A Metaphor for Grace?
Let me begin by saying that I am working on my next ‘sin’ article but, being winter and seeing this snow, I am reminded of something that has struck me every winter for quite some time now. It is my best attempt at taking a natural event, reading something into it and applying it to my life. I know that it is not perfect and it has evolved over the years, but it is something…
SIN – Another Look
I think I have written on this before, either in my MySpace blog, or earlier in the year, but no matter, as we all need to revisit topics for consideration. So with that, what is sin? It is ‘hamartia’ in the Greek. It means to ‘miss the mark.’ But, as Vine’s says, we in the NT frame have lost sight of this. Sin doesn’t have to be a very large and evil thing. It can…
Once again my vengeance is put on hold while I am led to talk about something else. Things are transpiring beyond my control, so I am asking for everyone reading this to pray for me and that God’s will be done.
Vengeance Is Mine (Part 2): Hate
Ok folks, we are back to this whole “vengeance is mine, thus saith the Lord.” I guess what started me on this track was thinking about our current President, politicians in general, and comments in the media, on blog sites and some conversations I’ve had. Like him or hate him, he was elected by the majority of the populace. Non-Christians need not worry about this, but Christians
