I Knew a Preacher Once

0-2

I knew a Preacher once Who was called of the Lord To stand in a pulpit And open up the Word I knew a Preacher once Who said, "Thus says the Lord." His passion was singular And his allegiance to only One I knew a Preacher once Who studied relentlessly the Book Holy Spirit fire in his eyes When to the Sacred Task he took I knew a Preacher once Who taught h...

Comparison - The Root of Many Sins

freely-68063

Recently, I was standing in the check out line at Walmart on a Sunday right after church (I know, I know.really). But here I was. And in front of me were two ladies practicing great patience and kindness with the cashier who was not really happy to be there. They had clearly just left church too. They were dressed in flowered skirts to their knees and their hair was neat a...

Back to School: Parents Beware!

Screen-Shot-2019-07-26-at-8.55.39-PM

Christians often ask the wrong questions. Instead of asking, "Why doesn't God saveeveryone?" we should ask, "Why does God saveanyone?" Another example, sometimes a Christian parent will ask me my opinion on home schooling or private school or public school. I have made my thoughts on those subjects crystal clear for many years, from the pulpit, in the counseling rooms, a...

Public Schools = Pastor's Nuisance

The problems in the K-12 (not to mention the university system) system are really too numerous to even tackle now for Bible-believing pastors. Planned Parenthood runs the "sex education." GLSEN gets a nod to infiltrate every level of the system, meaning our 1st graders are being routinely exposed to the agenda of those who promote sexual sins and self-rule as normal and ac...

The Dignity of Home-Making

My wife and I have two amazing daughters. Raising them has been a deeper joy and a more difficult challenge than we ever anticipated. It has kept us humble and prayerful, seeking God's grace in Christ. Our oldest daughter (19) has expressed little to no interest in college or even a "career." We have raised both of our daughters to follow God's dream for their lives. If t...

Responding to Revoice

Screen-Shot-2019-04-10-at-9.05.43-PM

Last year a conference was held in St. Louis called "Revoice." Although I have not listened to any of the sermons or speeches given at the conference, I studied up on it enough to know it was not a conference I would personally endorse or attend. Several speakers at this conference are advocating for the acceptance of labels such as "Gay Christian." Sexual desires and beha...

The Pro-Abortion Consistency

freely-tim-bish-1221122

Earlier this week, the US Senate was unable to pass straight-forward legislation that would have ensured any babies born alive during abortion attempts receive standard medical care. Every Democrat except three voted "no." So, let's be very clear. These Senators, elected to one of the highest and most noble offices in our great Nation, voted to allow a doctor, and nurses,...

Vocabulary of Divorce

Practicing4Divorce

Preaching through James is proving to be a deeply convicting labor. Over the last two Sundays, we have delved into the sin of partiality, as James tackles it in Chapter Two, verses One Through Thirteen. Though he applies it directly to economic status (rich or poor), we had to explore ways in which we may knowingly or unknowingly commit this same sin in our church today. W...

Give Thanks

Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit(1 Thess 5:17-19). Brothers and Sisters in Christ, do not let Black Friday darken your Thanksgiving! During the sermon last Sunday, I mentioned the prayers of my Granddaddy McWhorter. My Dad used to recall from his childhood how his Dad...

A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established . . . and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So...
