     | 5,923 views

    To get to heaven, Christ is the way, the truth and the life.

    Following or getting directions – for both men and women it can be humorous and frustrating. On more than one occasion I have heard men say, "My wife is so lousy at directions. Every time she steps outside the house and turns around, she’s lost.” Just as often I have heard a wife say about her ...read more

    God’s desire is that we be holy and pure. Soap is good for cleansing the outside of the body, but doesn’t get below the skin into the heart.

    INTRODUCTION This message is the first in a series I’m calling “No, that’s NOT in the Bible.” There are dozens of popular sayings floating around that people think are from the Bible and they’re not. There is a great deal of biblical illiteracy in the pews of our churches. Here is a top ten list ...read more

    The ABCs of a Biblical understanding of money.

    INTRODUCTION We’re in the middle of a series entitled, “No, that’s NOT in the Bible!” There are many clever witticisms people quote as coming from the Bible–and they aren’t found in the Bible.

    based on 46 ratings
     | 117,282 views

    Sometimes our disappointments in life can become God’s appointments, so don’t let closed doors bother you. The things we think of as failures and problems can often end up being blessings in disguise.

    INTRODUCTION It seems doors of opportunity open and close before us in life. Is it God opening and closing these doors? For many years I’ve heard the saying, “When God shuts one door, He opens another!” Well, no, those exact words are not found in the Bible anywhere. However, of all the phrases ...read more

     | 20,070 views

    If you could spend your entire life listening to and obeying your God-given conscience, you could live a perfect life. But the Bible says we have ALL sinned and we fall short of the glory of God. All of us end up with a messed-up conscience.

    INTRODUCTION This is the penultimate message in this series on spurious Bible verses. Next week, we’ll consider the final adage, “To Thine Own Self Be True.” I encourage you to investigate this week and see if you can find the true source of that saying. A helicopter pilot flying over Seattle ...read more

    The dangerous implications of taking “To thine own self be true” literally.

    INTRODUCTION This is the final message in the series, “No, that’s NOT in the Bible.” Since I’ve started this series, I’ve encountered several other “sayings” often mistakenly quoted as coming from the Bible. Here are some other sayings that aren’t in the Bible: Charity begins at home; This too ...read more

  • Preaching The Whole Gospel

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Dec 29, 2007
    based on 11 ratings
     | 2,118 views

    Many of the problems we’re experiencing the church in America can be traced back to the fact that we’re only preaching part of the gospel ("believe in Jesus") while ignoring the rest of the basic gospel message laid out by Paul in Romans.

    A Burden On My Heart: In many churches today it’s not so much that we’re preaching a false gospel as that we’re preaching an incomplete gospel. - Quite a while back, God began to point out to me a lot of references throughout the NT to a particular truth (and I’ll get into what that was here ...read more

    Paul gives three ways to identify someone who isn’t saved.

    Intro: eyewitnesses at a crime scene are asked to give a full description of the suspect. Sometimes a sketch is drawn and posted for the public to try to make the identification. Paul is very descriptive in his writings. In today’s text we find a description of a lost person. Here are three simple ...read more

    Contributed by Bruce Willis on Nov 26, 2007
    based on 15 ratings
     | 2,000 views

    This sermon from my series on Preaching Through Romans attempts to deal with some of the arguments that people make against the truth and to the grace of God thereby refusing to take advantage of the offer of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    What about the person who is born with the proverbial silver spoon in his or her mouth? Are those advantages advantageous? Are they beneficial, useful, helpful – to your advantage, valuable or profitable? Most of us would answer absolutely “Not” in our day and time. On Entertainment News you ...read more

  • The Conclusion Of The Matter Series

    Contributed by Bruce Willis on Nov 26, 2007
    based on 12 ratings
     | 2,062 views

    This sermon seeks to challenge people who have not come to a conclusion about their relationship with God to do so in the face of Paul’s conclusion that all alike are guilty of sin.

    Do you ever come to any conclusions about any matters? Do you ever come to any conclusion about things that matter? I mean, do you ever come to any meaningful conclusions about anything that really matters? When I look out at you from my perspective this morning, I honestly have to ask you this ...read more
