  • The Foolishness Of Christmas Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 8, 2021

    Let's look at the foolishness of Christmas and see just how wise it really is. The foolishness of God is very simply the foolishness of love. True love tends to be foolish for it takes risks.

    A large number of life's greatest blessings start out as stupid, moronic foolishness in the eyes of many people. This was the case with Samuel Morse, a pastor's son and an artist who left his art for a new idea. He thought that a message could be sent by means of electricity. He labored more

  • When God Speaks

    Contributed by Thomas Andrufski on Apr 1, 2021

  • The Foolishness Of The Cross - Holy Tuesday

    Contributed by Ian Bullock on Mar 29, 2021

    A look at 1 Corinthians 1.18-31 from the lectionary for Holy Tuesday worship, and the challenge of being a 'fool' for Christ

    In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen, In the letters that Paul wrote to the Church in Corinth, he always found a way to challenge them, to make them think about their faith and how they walked the path being set out before them. Through the scripture that we have just listened to more

  • The Foolishness Of The Cross Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 19, 2021

    Paul's whole battle with the Corinthians was to get them to stop being wise before the world and fools before God, and to reverse that to being fools before the world, and wise before God.

    The mayor and other dignitaries were looking into the vast pit dug for the new hospital to be built. The town half-wit came up and gazed into the pit, and asked the mayor what he was going to do with this big hole. The mayor decided to humor him and said, "We are going to round up all the more

  • Week Three Series

    Contributed by Robert Butler on Mar 15, 2021

    Self examination is not intended as a form of self punishment, but a redirection of our love to God for what He did for us through the cross. It’s meant as a guidepost to living like “little Christs” in this world so we can be a blessing to those who may never consider His saving grace.

    “Lent is one of the oldest observations on the Christian calendar. Like all Christian holy days and holidays, it has changed over the years, but its purpose has always been the same: self-examination and penitence, demonstrated by self-denial, in preparation for Easter. Early church father more

    Why do we preach Christ crucified?

  • The Foolishness Of The Cross

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 8, 2021

    Paul wrote about the foolishness of many things, but the most shocking is that he wrote about the foolishness of the cross.

    The mayor and other dignitaries were looking into the vast pit dug for the new hospital to be built. The town half-wit came up and gazed into the pit, and asked the mayor what he was going to do with this big hole. The mayor decided to humor him and said, "We are going to round up all the more

  • Wisdom Versus Foolishness

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Mar 1, 2021

    This sermon is about man's foolishness versus God's wisdom and the cross. Later into the sermon this question "Whose fool are you?' is asked several times.

    WISDOM VERSUS FOOLISHNESS Text: I Corinthians 1:18 – 25   For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  (19)  For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment more

  • Is The Gospel Pc?

    Contributed by Perry Greene on Feb 26, 2021

    Too often we make the gospel into something it is not because we are uncon=mfortable with others' reactions.

    1. A preacher was once approached by a troubled church member who wanted to air his concerns about the direction the church was going. When it was the preacher’s turn to speak he began quoting scripture the member replied, "If you’re going to start using the Bible we’re done talking. You study more

    In this MSG we will look at some of the ways of Jesus that to the 'upside down' world looked foolish.

    The Foolishness Of Christ 24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But more

  • Cross-Contamination (Part One)

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Jun 1, 2020

    When you hear cross-contamination, it's not referring to something good. But today I'd like to turn that around. Normally we would do our best to avoid cross-contamination, but when it pertains to the cross of Christ, it's best to encourage cross-contamination.

    CROSS-CONTAMINATION (part one) By definition, cross-contamination is the process by which bacteria or other microorganisms are unintentionally transferred from one substance or object to another, with harmful effect. You might typically hear this in reference to transferring bacteria between raw more

  • A Wise Fool

    Contributed by Dr. Ronald Shultz on May 11, 2020

    Far better to be thought a fool by the world and walk in God's wisdom than the other way around.

    Proposition: You must simply believe Jesus! I. Because the Gospel is simple! 17-18 A. The Cross is simple! 17 B. God’s power is simple! 18 II. Because the world is ignorant! 19-20 A. God has destroyed its wisdom! 19 B. Big names mean nothing! 20 III. Because God’s way is not more
