    Offended? Disagree? Go on the offensive and cancel the material or the person. It is culture cancel and it has gone wild. However, maybe we should participate!

    Mental Illness and the Bible

    You can almost feel the panic in your bones as you read these words. For his entire reign, Saul had battled either directly or indirectly against his enemies to the west, the Philistines.

  • Are Your Words Testifying Against You?

    Contributed by Barry O Johnson on Sep 24, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    One of the things that I believe we sometimes forget is that the words that we speak mean a lot more than what we may think. This message is about the importance of speaking in agreement with God.

    Are Your Words Testifying Against You? One of the things that I believe we sometimes forget is that the words that we speak mean a lot more than what we may think. And one of the verses we’re going to look at this morning, and I’ll turn to it. It’s John 6:63. Jesus says, “It is the spirit that more

    based on 1 rating

    First Samuel 31:1-13 shows us what happens to one who is unfaithful.

    Scripture First Samuel and Second Samuel were originally written as one book. Somewhere along the way, perhaps because of its length, the Book of Samuel was divided into two.

  • I Shall Not Be Headless (Part 1) Series

    Contributed by Jeremiah Menyongai on Sep 5, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Saul says to David: "I have played the fool." Indeed, he had. Due to his wrong choice of consulting a witch, Saul committed the ultimate rebellion & finds himself among biblical characters who committed suicide. Should suicide be an option for Christians?

  • Don't Waste Your Life Series

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Aug 7, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    It is not enough to have great potential or show great promise. It is what you do with that potential that makes all the difference. A good beginning does not guarantee a good end. End your life well, to the glory of God.

    Whatever we start, do it well and end it well. Put your heart in it and do a good job. It is more important how we end than how well we start. • This is so true of Saul’s life. He started well, but did not end well. • We are going to read about his death today (1 Sam 31), and more

    We look at some of the ways Saul played the fool so we can learn how NOT to go the direction Saul went.

    The Ways of a Fool 1 Samuel 31 Like most of you, I have spent time walking in the cemetery. I like to look at the gravestones and their dates.
