Spiritual “Do-Nuts”

The title is not suggestive of some sort of “religious” circular dough that has been deep-fried and sprinkled or glazed with sugar, though there are probably points to be made along those lines also.  Instead, the “do-nut” under consideration is the type done with a motorized vehicle- the kind where the front wheels barely move in a tight circle and the back wheels are spinning and squealing in a larger smoking or dirt-slinging circle around the outside.  These “do-nuts” have definite comparisons to some “spiritual” pursuits today…

 

Political Correctness is Anti-Christ

George Orwell: "During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."  Are we there yet?  It sure seems that someone telling the truth is close to becoming "hate speech!"  Given these things, this sermon is surely Politically INCORRECT!  It is a PowerPoint outline (please view in "Presentation" mode) that manifests how Political Correctness is against Christ and Christianity.

Men’s One-Day Study: “The Selection, Appoinment, and Duties of Elders”

This material was presented as a part of our twice a year Men's One-Day Study.  The study was originally designed for preachers, but is open to any men interested in men interested in study God's word in a more advanced way.  This particular study was presented in hopes of meeting three objectives: 1) to provide a clear view of the qualifications as a whole, and their overall purpose;  2)to help alleviate some of the controversy centered around the understanding and application of the "family" qualifications; and, 3) to address the often neglected aspects of the duties and responsibilities of serving as an Elder.  As such, the class did not go through the qualifications one by one.  The material is about 35 pages in Word format.
