NB: This is the rough manuscript (most of which was) preached to a Men’s Fellowship at Morningview Baptist Church on 5/16/2021. If the Lord wills, I hope to fill it out and preach it as a full sermon one day. I hope it is a blessing. Some lessons tend to be a little deeper, a little more abstract. They can take us to the mountain peaks of theology, pull back the curtains and let us hear…

This morning we will be taking a slight detour from our regular verse-by-verse study through 1st Corinthians in order to center our attention on a topic that the Pastors feel is worth our focused study.

Thus far we have seen in this letter that Paul is in the middle of an ongoing argument. From chapter 1 verse 10 all...

Please turn with me in your bibles to Leviticus chapter 16. Leviticus chapter 16. That’s the third book of the bible, and really the center of the entire TORAH, or the books of Moses, the Law of Israel. Tonight, I will attempt to make explicit several connections from the Old Testament to the New, from...

Good evening. Please turn with me in your bibles to 1 Corinthians chapter 3. 1st Corinthians chapter 3. We’re continuing our study of what we know as Paul’s first letter to the church of God in Corinth. The occasion for Paul’s letter was that the church God in this sophisticated Greek city was in trouble....

**Partly out of historical curiosity, partly because this was so difficult for me to find, I post here Robert Haldane’s “The Purposed Desecration of the Sabbath, and Railway Desecration.”[1] While you may not agree with all of his conclusions, you can’t but be impressed with the man’s desire for consistent and faithful application of biblical truth....
