    The devil and his workers will not appear as satan & deceivers. They will appear to be on your side & on God’s side. But they will take your attention off God, off Jesus Christ, off sharing His Gospel & place attention on man & his frailties.

    There is no one better to learn about true spritual leadership, then the apostle Paul himself. In a day where false teachers abound, we must make sure that we are leading God’s people the right way.

    Fail Proof Spiritual Leadership 1 Thess. 2:1-6 Intro For the sake of our study, I don’t want to start in Chapter 1, but rather in Chapter 2. For nearly half a century, beginning in the 1950’s, the world has asked the question, “Where have all the leaders gone?” During that time, society ...read more

    The theme of James is captured in the first chapter, verses James 1:2-4 (read). He then discusses trials and faith throughout the rest of the letter. Some of these trials come from without, but some are as near as the members of our own bodies, i.e. our tongues. Someone pointed out that James ...read more

Although partly as a warning to Timothy, a theme that runs through both letters is to avoid foolish arguments and that some will turn ...read more
