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). The church must be MILITANT! https://youtu.be/D9wdeI4I7DE … [Read more...]

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...]

What’s the difference between “Denomination” and “Non-Denominational”? What are you?

There are many false beliefs where is the true church ? Thank you for the GREAT question! It has become somewhat "trendy" for churches to claim that they are "non-denominational." This is part of the Community Church trend that started several years ago. However, most of those so-called Community Churches are simply denominations that have dropped the denominational name. They are still teaching and practicing, pretty much, the same things they did before they dropped the denominational … [Read more...]

The Kingdom Of God Is Within You

   Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:20–21, NKJV) This question of the Pharisees continues being asked to this very day by those who look for an earthly Kingdom that will come with great and tumultuous world events. The Pharisees believed that the Messiah would come as a … [Read more...]
