About Robert
  • Education: Ph.D.
  • Experience: Methodist Lay Minister Southern Baptist Deacon Christian Church Deacon Ordained Minister in the Christian Church
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I believe that a Christian should speak where the bible speaks and be silent where the bible is silent. I believe that we cannot compromise Christian essentials, but in nonessentials we must respect the opinions of other. We need a Jesus-centric open discourse with all mankind: one that does not burden others with our traditions of observance and abstention. In everything, we need to treat each other with the love of Jesus.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Thomas Campbell’s Declaration and Address
  • One of my favorite illustrations: A poor widow was praying for a loaf of bread when two young scoundrels overheard her through her living room window. They ran to the bakery and bought a loaf of bread and threw it threw her window. The widow began to thank God and praise Him for the bread. The boys began to taunt her with: "we did it not God." The widow replied: "God provided me with this bread even if the Devil’s little helpers delivered it."
  • Family: Wife, Son & Three Grand Children
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My mother liked them. My father did not go to church.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My spouse is my sea anchor. She likes my sermons and very often proofs them with a special eye to my remaining humble, gentle and loving ... not natural traits for me. I used to want to preach like Paul ... now, thanks to my wife, I want to love like Jesus.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: The three keys to a sermon are: pray, pray, pray
  • Books that have had an impact: Knowing God
  • Hobbies: Fishing Writing Tinkering and fixing things
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There is but one God: the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. There is but one way to God and that is through His Son Jesus the Christ.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: I was preaching in a Pentecostal church and this elderly lady came in. I was a bit concerned as I watched her struggle to a pew. I was just getting good and warmed up when she jumped up and began running around the isles on the outside of the pews. She would make one round: thump, thump, thump; and then stop to catch her breath. In a few moments she would take off again. I was afraid she would have a heart attack so I stopped preaching; someone shouted: don’t stop, she is just in the spirit
  • What I want on my tombstone: I am not here!
