    Somewhere between quack and quisling is the remnant. Strive to be among that number.

    Somewhere Between Quack and Quisling Ezra 9 and 10 Before we read Ezra 9 and 10 let's back up and get a broad overview of what happened to the Jews up to this point. I'm going to back up and then go slightly ahead because it will matter when we consider Ezra's response to God: 605 BC - ...read more

    Hell is the eternal, conscious, tormenting state of existence of those separated from God.

    The summer of my seventh year I attended a Vacation Bible School at Grace Baptist Church in Tyro, North Carolina. My family attended a United Methodist Church in the neighboring community and this VBS was quite similar to what I was used to: games; sugar wafers; cherry Kool-Aid; flannel-graph; I ...read more

    God created you for a calling, but you’re going to have to fight for it.

    When I read this Paul’s final teaching in the book of Ephesians. It reminds me of George C. Scott in that classic movie “Patton.” He’s standing in front of an enormous American flag rallying the men to fight the battle before them during WW II. In he utters one of the best lines I’ve ever heard ...read more

    God calls His children to go into the darkness and leave their light on.

    Light has amazing qualities. It attracts and transforms. Turn on a light in the darkness outside and watch what happens. Every flying critter within range will flock to it. Turn out all the lights at night in your safe, comfortable house and what happens? It becomes a treacherous obstacle ...read more

    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,909 views

    A Spirit-filled Christian chooses to be under the influence of God.

    I love idioms. Idioms are local or cultural words or phrases that have dual meanings. If, for example, someone says that you are cool or hot, they’re not talking about your body temperature. Cool means unaffected by pressure or it describes a certain winsome personality or just means good. Hot, ...read more

     | 2,273 views

    If you want to know if you’ve truly been born again answer the question: "Who is your spiritual daddy?"

    I guess it’s a sign of the times in which we live, but a couple of years ago I saw a billboard on I-85 in Charlotte that said, “Who’s the daddy?” There was a picture of a baby and an ad for a genetic testing lab beneath the picture. It’s sad that young folks are so promiscuous they have to have a ...read more

     | 3,759 views

    If you’ve received the grace of God return the favor to everyone else.

    Let’s begin this morning with a little check of your vocabulary. Can someone give me a defining of the word nag? If someone accuses you of nagging them, what are they trying to tell you? Nagging is when you tell someone something that they already know. And you tell them over … and over … and ...read more

    God’s call sets the course for your life.

    ‘Tis the season for graduation! It’s a bittersweet time. One chapter of life ends while a new one begins. The door closes on friendships that have lasted a decade or more, but just ahead are relationships that will probably last a lifetime. There’s some anxiety at moving into the unknown, but ...read more

    Most of this sermon was ripped off from the pamplet "My Heart, Christ’s Home."

    This morning’s sermon is going to be dramatically different from what I’ve presented so far. In just a few minutes I’m going to get you to use your imagination and go on a tour with Jesus Christ. I think you’ll be convicted, challenged, and encouraged, but to get there you’ll need to put aside ...read more

    If you will let Christ change your mind, through you He will change the world.

    This year has been quite a learning experience for me. I’ve learned much about World History and American Government because those are the two main subjects I teach, but I’ve also learned a lot about the why the church in America is so ineffective in our modern culture. I’ve gained this knowledge ...read more

    If you will live for Christ like no one else, later you can live with Christ like no one else.

    Today I speak to you as a free man. School is out for summer. I haven’t had this much freedom since I was a teenager. It’s been a good year, though.
