Bible Q-n-A: What do you tell people to do to be saved?

This question usually comes from those trying to imply that teaching someone to be baptized for the remission of sins is a complicated and illogical process. Nothing could be further from the truth! When I'm asked that question, I tell them that I answer that question the same way Paul did in Acts 16:30-34. https://youtu.be/MPve6i-VbvA … [Read more...]

Equipped for Battle

Ephesians 6:10-20 We know about the armor of God (Eph. 6:14-17). But have we really considered the application? How does this passage picture the church and the Christian life? (cf. Eph. 6:10-13; 2 Tim. 2:3). Are we soldiers EQUIPPED FOR BATTLE? That we are supplied with armor and weaponry (cf. Eph. 6:17; 2 Cor. 10:4), means we are at war! (2 Cor. 10:3-6; 2 Tim. 2:4; Eph. 6:11).

Know Your Bible 08-10-2017

One of the things I love about living in LaGrange, GA is the opportunity to be a frequent panelist on the "Know Your Bible" TV program. "Know Your Bible" is a work of the Cusetta Road Church of Christ in Columbus, GA. It is a question and answer format and was the model for my own "Bible Q-n-A." I watched "Know Your Bible" with my grandfather on Sunday mornings when I was young. So when I started doing my own program it was naturally influenced by "Know Your Bible." Since I started appearing … [Read more...]

Baptism for the Remission of Sins

Baptism has been a problematic doctrine for centuries. Everything from changes in the mode to changes of the purpose of baptism has become part of Catholic and Denominational doctrine. Sprinkling, pouring, immersion as a symbol, have been contentious issues for a very, very long time. It’s not because the Bible is unclear about the mode and purpose of baptism.
