  • Only A Wimpy Philosopher--Come On, Man! Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Mar 6, 2021

    That would, of course, be a lot like having a beautiful vehicle with no engine and, therefore, no value. Jesus as a kind of philosophizing wimp, so to speak.

    Monday of the 3rd Week in Lent 2021 One of the great heresies of Christendom that comes back again and again says that Jesus Christ was a great moral philosopher in the line of the Buddha, Confucius, and Marcus Aurelius. Perhaps the most notorious of the authors holding this position was the U.S. more

    Worldview Matters CCCAG August 12th, 2018 Scripture- John 13:21-38 Intro: I am a little bit of a history buff. Let me define history- History is the exploration of decisions and I'm fascinated by digging in to how decisions were made in the past. One of the historical areas that fascinates me more

  • Knowing God

    Contributed by Sam Mccormick on Sep 12, 2017

    Paul wrote to Timothy, "I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day." There is a great difference between knowing about God, and knowing God. Paul knew the one to whom he trusted all.

    Note 1: This sermon can be used as a companion sermon to "Knowing Christ," which is also posted on Sermon Central. They are not redundant, and may be used separately or presented on consecutive occasions. Note 2: I have developed some PowerPoint slides that I used in presenting this sermon. If more

  • Christianity And Service

    Contributed by Ezekiel Ette on Aug 30, 2020

    The story of Paul in the Areopagus in Athens will be a nice one for philosophers and the intellectuals of the times

    The story of Paul in the Areopagus in Athens will be a nice one for philosophers and the intellectuals of the times and to some extent the postmodern folks of today who neither think much about science or of religion. Yet this story is also the story of our time and of ordinary folks who are more

  • Only Sandals And A Walking Stick

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jun 11, 2018

    In contrast, Cynic philosophers of the era were known for their provision bag, staff, and big mouth!

    15B My favorite ancient Greek philosopher is the stoic Epictetus (epic-TEE-tus), who taught, “It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters," which is at the heart of some Catholic Christian adaptations of various Cognitive Behavioral Therapies. Epictetus, who taught around more

  • Loving Truth

    Contributed by James Groce on May 4, 2003
    based on 47 ratings

    Pontius Pilate even attempted to engage Jesus Christ in a philosophical discussion of the nature of truth when he asked “What is truth?”

    ******************* Loving truth 2 Thess. 2:10b “…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” It is sobering to realize that this statement implies that we don’t naturally love the truth. Nor, for that matter, can we be saved without loving the more

  • Post-Modernism Is Dead, Jesus Is Alive

    Contributed by Justin Steckbauer on Mar 30, 2021

    I could never accept the curious suggestion by modern philosophers that the meaning of life breaks down to my own personal preference.

    “These are exciting times. When I finished the Epilogue to Darwin on Trial in 1993, I compared evolutionary naturalism to a great battleship afloat on the Ocean of Reality. The ship's sides are heavily armored with philosophical and legal barriers to criticism, and its decks are stacked with more

  • Wisdom

    Contributed by Chris Beam on Apr 26, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    It’s not an accident that this book has been classified as "Wisdom Literature." In my opinion, it’s probably the most philosophical books of the entire Bible. But, it also contains more than just philosophical debate. It contains some very practical and down-to-earth wisdom.

    Series: Vanity Topic: Wisdom Text: Ecclesiastes 7:15-29 Last week, I began my sermon talking about wisdom. This week I want to expand on that thought as we come to the seventh chapter of Ecclesiastes. It’s not an accident that this book has been classified as "Wisdom Literature." In my more

  • Christ Is Risen! Series

    Contributed by Dan Proctor on Apr 6, 2015

    The resurrection of Christ is not simply a philosophical idea whereby His Spirit lives on in our memories. It is a reality of history. But what does this mean to us today?

    Christ Is Risen! 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 Introduction: 1. In this chapter, Paul is dealing with the issue of the resurrection of the dead. Some in the church at Corinth were teaching that there was no physical resurrection of the dead. • The Sadducees taught more

  • The Preeminence Of Jesus Sermon

    Contributed by Ronnie Miller on Jul 14, 2013

    Man’s greatest problem is sin—a problem that can never be fixed by a philosopher or a religious teacher. Sinners need a Saviour.

    The Preeminence of Jesus sermon 07/2013 There’s something about that name ….some even name their child Jesus…but, when they do it just doesn’t seem right …. David said in Psalm 8 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory more

  • Paul's Sermon At Athens: The Historical Background

    Contributed by Donald Whitchard on May 31, 2021

    This is the first of a series of messages centering on the sermon that the Apostle Paul gave before the groups of philosophers in Athens, and how it is a perfect model for Biblical apologetics and evangelism.

    People today tend to sidestep, ignore, deter, apologize and question the concept of reality in a world which gladly embraces the concept that reality, truth, and fact are not absolute but just a matter of opinion, experience, or personal interpretation. We have become terrified of the more

  • Christians And Wisdom Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jun 10, 2018

    There were among the Gentiles wise philosophers who considered the Gospel foolishness; and although the apostle, with tongue in cheek, had called the Gospel ministry the foolishness of preaching, and the foolishness of God, and even though he had . . .

    September 1, 2012 Lessons on First Corinthians By: Tom Lowe Lesson 2.5: Christians and Wisdom Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2.6-2.16 1 Cor 2.6-16 (KJV) 6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come more

  • What Is Real?

    Contributed by Ken Henson on Jun 1, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    In order to answer the question, ‘what does it mean’ you must first answer the question ‘what is real’? I realize most people are not asking this question. But philosophers and scientists do.

    The purpose of apologetics is to present biblical answers to the questions of Origin, Meaning, Morality, Destiny. If you can answer the questions of these issues you have presented a worldview This morning I’d like to focus only on one aspect of this collection of four questions-the more
