  • There Is No Substitute

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on May 8, 2004
    based on 51 ratings

    Mothers’ Day sermon: We need the structure of the home, for there is no substitute for moral living, which means there is no substitute for authentic religious teaching, which in turn means there is no substitute for responsible parenting.

    Lord, help the poor soul who serves as a substitute teacher. When I was a schoolboy and our teacher had to be away, we plotted what we were going to do to that substitute. There was something about the idea that we would have her for only one or two days and would likely never see her again. more

    The people of Israel weren’t the only people to do what seemed right in their own eyes, it’s still happening.

    “Who Says it’s right?” Judges 17:6 Begin with reading from “Through the Looking Glass” “What a beautiful belt you’ve got on!” Alice suddenly remarked. (They had had quite enough of the subject of age, she thought: and if they really were to take turns in choosing subjects, it was her turn now.) more

    based on 114 ratings

    The hand that rocks the cradle may very well be the hand that determines the eternal destiny of our children.

    Title: The value of mothers There is a modern proverb that most of us have heard that says: ‘the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.’ While not all proverbs found outside the Bible are true this one is. And it’s true because the person who rocks the cradle will also be the person who will more

  • Life Without A Compass Series

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Sep 14, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    During the times of the judges, Israel has lost sense of who God is and what His will is. They do not know the meaning and purpose of life. We need a compass in life, and that compass is God.

    Judges 17:1-13 Life Without A Compass ES 13 Sep 15 1706 Do you know where North is? Which direction is North? How can you tell? • If we are not sure, can we decide where North is? Can we all just agree to pick one direction and call it North? • Can we more

    A sermon on the how the world today resembles the world during the time of Judges. i.e. where everyone did their own thing and followed false gods.

    It’s good to have you here today. I am glad you all braved the snow, the terrible weather. I have a question for you. Did Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow or not? Not. Now that’s a good thing, right? Because that means early spring. Well, that’s good. Anyway, today we are going to be more

  • The Hireling Series

    Contributed by Thomas Swope on Oct 11, 2012

    Judges 17: 1 – 13 The Hireling Now there was a man from the mountains of Ephraim, whose name was Micah. 2 And he said to his mother, “The eleven hundred shekels of silver that were taken from you, and on which you put a curse, even saying it in my ears—here is the silver with more

  • Vanishing Values

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Mar 29, 2022

    William Bennett, author of “Vanishing Values,” dealt with how the American values our forefathers held dear are rapidly vanishing in our age.

    It has proven to be true that history repeats itself. When God established Israel as a nation He gave them very strict laws, but by the time we reach the book of Judges we find those values, that God had tried to instill in that nation, HAD VANISHED. Look at Judges 17:6. We read, “In those days more

  • Don't Do Your Own Thing! Series

    In these dark and foggy times, submit to God’s authority first in your home, then in the household of God, then in the community at large.

  • The Gospel Of Man, Ii Series

    Contributed by D Marion Clark on Mar 30, 2016

    Last Sunday we began a three-part series on the gospel and its alternatives in the gospel of man. We looked at the gospel of law-keeping. The gospel considered now is that of the heart. God already accepts us because he sees the basic good in our hearts.

    7/14/13 The Gospel of Man, II Judges 17:1-13 D. Marion Clark Introduction Last Sunday we began a three-part series on the gospel and its alternatives in the gospel of man.
