    Contributed by Tom Papez on Jun 8, 2012

    Message takes a literal look at the church of Corinth, specifically their issue of having lawsuits. An explanation is given as to why the Apostle Paul says that one day we humans will judge the angels--a somewhat surprising thing to say but something that

    YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH Series: 1 Corinthians 6 (The Hell List Chapter) INTRO: There is a classic movie called a Few Good Men. The plot doesn’t matter so much, other than to know that there is a defense attorney trying to get an impossible not guilty verdict from a judge in a case more

  • Without A Trace Series

    Contributed by Tom Papez on Jun 8, 2012
    based on 2 ratings

    What happens when an angry killer goes free? Meanwhile, why is it fair that a Godly man receives massive amounts of difficult times? Either way the questions are asked, the answer is Jesus.

    Without a Trace During the winter of 1951, a Montana café owner named Clarence Pellett pulled over to pick up a hitchhiker who appeared cold and frozen while walking during a snowstorm. Once in the car, the hitchhiker Frank Dryman pulled out a gun and ordered Pellett to get out of his vehicle, more

    Contributed by Tom Papez on Jun 8, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    Message compares a burglary in Georgia in which the thief took money from a boy selling charity T-shirts from his wheel chair. The point is "does Jesus forgive us just because we say we are sorry?"

    TROUBLE IN COBB COUNTY A burglary took place in Marietta, Georgia, that still has authorities and local people scratching their heads. What is amazing is not how the theft took place, nor what was stolen, but who the victim happened to be. Newspapers report that a 17 year old high school more

    based on 3 ratings

    Why did Jesus go from infinity to infant?

    WHY A BABY? I received an email recently that asked some pretty interesting questions. Questions such as, can you cry under water? Why does a round pizza come in a square box? How is it that we put a man on the moon before we figured out how to put wheels on luggage? Why do people say they slept more

    Message lists some of the more dangerous roads in America and then brings it back to Matthew 7 by asking the follower which road are you on?

    based on 5 ratings

    Message asks 10 very basic questions designed to confront the atheist (most Christians debate this by answering the opposition's questions but never seem to ask any to the atheist).

    DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BE AN ATHEIST? As most people, I live in the normal world, have a normal family, and live a normal life. And because I act in the normal way, when someone says “God Bless You” or “God Bless America” or the ever popular season greeting more

As a grandson of a Choctaw Indian, he played strong safety, kicker, punter, and quarterback for his high school team that passed less than five times a game. Favre received one and more

  • Don't Worry Be Happy Series

    Contributed by Tom Papez on May 22, 2012

    This message compares Matthew 6 to the classic Bobby McFerrin song of the same title.

    Don’t Worry Be Happy The song Don’t Worry Be Happy was a late 80’s chart buster as it gained phenomenal success for such a simple song. The lyrics written by Bobby McFerrin were copied from original Indian sage from the late 1800’s whose mantra was one of peace. I more

  • Fire In The Hole Series

    Contributed by Tom Papez on May 19, 2012

    The odd story of Centralia, Pennsylvania and how a fire (like hell) underground has taken over the entire are and will never go out. There are some obvious Biblical metaphors here.

    FIRE IN THE HOLE Centralia was a small mining town in the eastern part of Pennsylvania with about 1000 residents making their income off of the coal dug just underneath the crust. The town had existed the same way for over a century when pre-Civil War settlers moved out to dig up the anthracite more

  • A Lot To Digest Series

    Contributed by Tom Papez on May 17, 2012

    Message details the ins and outs of the digestive system in order to illustrate the point that we must continue to take in good spiritual food.
