     | 1,736 views

    Sown among Rocks Introduction: During our Wednesday night service, Pedro had a great point about our church during our testimony service and it spurred a thought, that I want to expound upon today about the true gospel church and about the true gospel convert. We often see somethings blow up ...read more

     | 5,743 views

    We may all be dirt, brought out of the dust of the ground, but we have a choice of what kind of dirt we are going to be -- Path dirt? Rocky dirt? Thorny dirt? or Good dirt? We are defined by the way we respond to the Word of God!

    A few observations from the passage: 1. All the different kinds of soil received the Word of God. This is a message about people who have received the Word. 2. A complete lack of fruitfulness from all, except one. Among the people in the church, there is no fruit, except in a small group of ...read more

     | 4,228 views

    Which type of soil is your faith planted in? For many I am afraid that they are not planted in the good soil.

    “Parable of the Sower” Introduction It seems odd to me that all Christians respond differently to God’s Word. It is weird to me that we can all come to church and hear the same sermon and even sit in the same pew, but some take something away from it and others don’t. We all respond ...read more

    A comparison of two farmers - why one is sad, and one is carefree.

    It is time for the Saints of God to be WARNED about heresy in the pulpit!

    2 Peter 2:1, but there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. What do you think it means to deny the Lord? ...read more
