  • Now Is The Accepted Time And Day Of Your Salvation

    Contributed on Jul 9, 2019
     | 817 views

    This sermon calls the reader into a consideration of God’s offer of salvation and redemption through acceptance of Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior, and warns of the consequences of not doing so.

    There was an item on the news recently about a preacher in one of the American states who was arrested because of bothering people in a public parking lot by asking them if they were saved. His preaching disturbed people. The authorities explained that if the preacher had only applied for a city ...read more

  • The Danger Of "mega-Dittos"

    Contributed on Jul 9, 2019
     | 336 views

    In this discourse, I've reworked several sermons from other preachers with a slightly different emphasis based upon the Contemporary English Version's translation of Matthew 16:23, namely, "You're in the way because you think like everybody else..."

    Comparing a variety of Biblical versions can be very helpful, and given the fact that the original New Testament texts were written in an old form of Greek, drawing out the exact meaning of the text and transferring that meaning to English is difficult. Through comparison of the various ...read more

    Thomas should not be condemned or even criticized for his insistence upon empirical evidence. Thomas provides an exemplary modal from which we can learn more about the nature of convincing faith.

The event involving Thomas in John 20:19-31 has given rise to the phrase, “Don’t be such a Doubting Thomas”. The incident involving Thomas’s refusal to simply take the word of other’s that the Lord had ...read more

     | 725 views

    In this sermon, content from several sources is presented in edited form with the goal of providing strength and comfort for those who fear death.

    What is it that frightens us most about death? Is it worrying that we will desperately miss the person who leaves us behind, or that the person we leave behind will desperately miss us? Are we afraid that we will not be able to get along without the person we love? In many cases, yes, I'm ...read more

  • The Fountainhead Of Faith

    Contributed on Jul 9, 2019
     | 645 views

    This message was given at the funeral of a Christian woman who, prior to her death, had asked me to preach about God’s plan of salvation, a “born again message” as she put it, at her funeral for the benefit of some of her family who had not yet accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

    Joan often spoke to me of her desire that I speak truthfully and forthrightly on this day about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Today I will do my best to find words to honor that request. In honoring her request, perhaps the words I speak are something of a last testament of her faith. Her desire ...read more
