“The Value of Guilt” - [1 Timothy 1:12-17; Psalm 51:1-17] - What role does ‘guilt' have in our lives? How should we deal with our guilt?

“Overcoming Disappointment, Frustration & Discouragement”  - [1 Kings 19:1-18; Hebrews 12:1-5,12-15] - Disappointments & frustrations are a part of life & becoming discouraged is something every Christian experiences. However, many times we attempt to deal with our negative feelings & experiences in superficial or temporary ways, (e.g., withdrawing from relationships, giving up prematurely, or even turning a blind eye to the problems we face, etc). These measures will eventually result only in more and more discouragement. – The cycle, if not properly dealt with, will continue until our faith is destroyed. We need to realize discouragement is a product of our own improper perspectives and inadequacies -  NOT merely our circumstances! - Why do we become discouraged? What perspective is needed? What qualities & characteristics must I develop within myself?  What are some practical steps to take that will help guard my heart from becoming discouraged? Is It Possible I Am The One Who Needs To Change? This is a lesson most all of us can benefit from – I pray that it is an encouragement to you. -  MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 11/22/2015

“What Dose The Bible Say About That?”  - [Selected passages] - Our understanding of the Bible is not so much dependant upon our intellect, or intelligence, but rather our humility - upon our willingness to believe and obey that which God has revealed. This lesson focuses on some plain, straitforward passages illustrating this truth - e.g., What does the Bible say about religious division? or women being in positions of church leadership? What does the Bible say about the church and recreation and entertainment? What does the Bible say about marriage, divorce and remarriage? When someone does me wrong, how should I handle it according to the Bible? Is salvation by faith only according to the Bible? Is baptism essential for salvation acording to the Bible? -  MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 11/15/2015

“The Walking Dead”  - [[Ephesians 2:1-10; Luke 9:60; 1 Timothy 5:6; 1 Peter 4:6] - A popular craze today is that of “zombies.” - but no, this lesson is not about zombies like you've seen on TV. This lesson is about the real, and very sad condition of many who are living in this world without Christ. Those out of fellowship with Christ are spiritually dead, most not knowing they are lost - on the road to being eternally seperated from God in hell. What are some dangers, or threats, to our spiritual health, that can kill us spiritually? What are some symptoms that indicate I am heading towards spiritual death? - Will we choose life or death? - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 11/8/2015

“The Perfect Family"  - [Colossians 3:18-21; Deuteronomy 6:4-9] - The “FAMILY,” as God designed it, is under attack! In fact - I would argue our current moral CRISIS in this country is due to the current disrespect for God’s divine pattern for the home, and the overall lack of godly families. - - - It is very true that families are comprised of imperfect people - To properly & successfully address & overcome any problem - we must appeal to God’s word & FOLLOW IT! - - - When God comes first in the heart of every family member - the family will be as God designed it! - - - OH, how we NEED GODLY HOMES!– MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 10/11/2015

“The New Testament Pattern of Worship For The Local Church" - [selected scriptures] -  It is important “HOW” we worship! There are MANY different ways to engage in “FALSE” worship! The “PURPOSE” of worship is to honor & glorify God -  The ONLY way to honor & glorify God in our worship is to worship AS HE SAYS! - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 9/20/2015

“The Impartiality of God"  - [Romans 2:1-16] - What does it mean to say God is “no respector of persons? or “God is impartial? What does it NOT mean?

“Organization of A Scripturally Organized Church  - [selected scriptures] - The New Testament provides the divinely approved patternhow the church of our Lord is to be organized. The early church departed from that divine pattern resulting in wide spread apostas. A church truly seeking to conform to the Lord’s will will seek out and follow the divine pattern. A failure to respect the divine pattern fails to honor the God of heaven. - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 9/13/2015

“What Modern Day Idolatry Looks Like” - [Romans 1:18-25] - Idolatry is the dethroning of the One True God in our heart & replacing Him with ANYTHING or ANYONE else! Our culture is just as guilty of idolatry as any pagan culture mentioned in the Bible. However - this lesson has to do with idolatry in a different light than what most of us would think. I want to submit to you that much of what is commonly called “Christianity” in our culture is not only very dissimilar to biblical Christianity, but is actually a form of idolatry. Please view the charts and listen to this lesson and see why this is the case. - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 9/6/2015

“Why The Sermon?"  - [Colossians 1:9-29] - What should the preacher preach? Why should the preacher preach? How should the preacher preach? - - - What should the preacher be striving to accomplish?

How different is the preaching commonly on exhibit today different from the kind of preaching exemplified in the Bible? - - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/30/2015

How Can  We Establish That Which God Wants & Demands From Us?  - Is It Expedient? - [How can we determine if an act is merely an aide in fulfilling God’s commands, and thus in harmony with God’s will, or if it is an addition to God’s instruction and thus against God’s will?  - Our intentions may be to glorify God in the things we do, but if we are not obeying God, we ARE NOT GLORIFYING Him! - This lesson contains some much needed teaching for our day! - Part 1  MP3 / Part 2  MP3 /  PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/23/2015 & 8/23/2015 

The Need For Proper Discernment” - Wilton Wesley - MP3

“My Christianity—A Matter of Convenience or Conviction"  - [1 Kings 12:25-33; Acts 24:25] -  We are living in a world filled with all types of modern conveniences. We have developed life-styles adapted to these conveniences. There is nothing inherently evil in conveniences, but they can lead us to develop unhealthy spiritual attitudes & can be a real danger to our faith & faithfulness to God. They can corrupt our service to God! There are NO shortcuts to salvation or spiritual growth … Nor can we substitute our convenient ways for God’s commands. -  MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/9/2015

How Can  We Establish That Which God Wants & Demands From Us?  - How God Instructs" - [The Principle of Submission - The nature of positive instruction & our NEED to obey God’s word as He has instructed]  - When God specifies a thing to be done and He specifies by positive instruction how He wants it to be done, we have no choice but to follow His specified instructions or be in rebellion. Our intentions may be to glorify God in the things we do, but if we are not obeying God, we ARE NOT GLORIFYING Him! - This lesson contains some much needed teaching for our day! -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/9/2015

“Things That Promote Unity In The Body of Christ"  -  & Things That Destroy It - [1 Corinthians 1:1-13; Ephesians 4:1-6; Philippians 2:1-5; James 3:13-18] -  When one becomes a Christian – that person enters into a relationship with the Father, Son & Holy Spirit & with other Christians. The very nature of the relationship should produce unity, cohesion, joint labor & joint success. But, TOO often this is NOT the case. Why? Without question, unity is important to God, seeing that numerous passages deal with it. It also should be noted that ANYONE quilty of causing division among God’s people, be it through introducing false doctrines or ungodly attitudes, is under the curse of God. What is the unity God demands? What MUST be the basis of this unity? How can we be the united people God demands? -  MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/2/2015

“Will We Go On Or Go Back?”  -  Having The Faith & Love To Overcome![Numbers 21:4–6] -  The exodus of the children of Israel was indeed a great event in human history. For the Israelites who witnessed the mighty power of God, and received His commandments & covenant began a long journey with joy and anticipation of great things. As the way became difficult, they came to be filled with doubts & misgivings about the way & those leading them - including God Himself. MOST of them never received the promises, but instead died in the wilderness. They longed for their former life of bondage. Will We Have The Faith & Love To Overcome? - MP3  / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/19/2015

““How To Establish Faith” - [The Principle of Submission - How Can  We Establish That Which God Wants & Demands From Us? How Can We Know We Are Walking By Faith?]   - God has used the basic laws of communication to reveal His will to us. Don’t think that if God had spoken in nothing but direct statements or commands that unity would exist! There are many things God has explicitly stated that the majority of those professing faith in Christ refuse to believe & obey. Understanding approved examples as well as the necessary implications of  the statements God has made are both essential to understanding and abiding in God’s divine will. -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/19/2015

“The Power & Wisdom of God Vs. Worldy Wisdom" - [1 Corinthians 1:17-2:16] - Corinth was a stronghold of “worldly wisdom” where paganism & immorality was the norm. Nearly 50 different philosophical systems competed in a culture of mass confusion. Divine wisdom has never appeared to be very wise from an unbelieving human perspective. Today, we have many of the same problems Corinth had, and we also have the same solution - the need to understand, believe and obey God’s word - the ONLY hope of salvation for a lost and confused world - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/12/2015

“Can We Do A Thing Which God Has NOT Instructed Us To Do By Faith?" - [The Principle of Submission - Seeking Permission For All We Believe Teach & Practice] - All we do in our service to God has its source of permission, or authority. Either God has instructed us through His word to believe & do a thing or man has taken the initiative to authorize the thing believed or done. Which can be done by faith? -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/12/2015

“What, When, Why & How Are We To Forgive One Another?” - What It Means To Forgive? - When MUST I Forgive? - Why MUST I Forgive? - How CAN I Forgive? — We MUST NEVER hold on to anger, bitterness or a grudge - but rather we MUST ALWAYS be kind & tender hearted -compassionate & loving - doing good - turning the other cheek - even taking loss - etc. - I MUST ALWAYS have a desire to forgive - how does forgiving others apply to reconciliation & fellowship? - Can we fully & completely forgive those who continue to live in sin? -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 6/14/2015

“This Is NOT A Salvation Issue! ... OR IS IT?” - [1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Revelation 21:8; Matthew 7:21-23; 2 John 9,10; Romans 14] - A salvation issue is usually defined as something for which a person will go to hell if he persists in and does not repent. Often times when we have a scripture or topic come up that we have a disagreement with someone about - we might say that “it’s not a salvation issue so there’s no reason to discuss it.” - What exactly is and is not a salvation issue? - How do we know what is and is not a salvation issue? - And just as importantly, why do we feel qualified to say that something is not a salvation issue?  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 5/24/2015

“The Lord’s church in an 'Experience Driven Culture'” - [John 6:60-69] - As churches decline in membership, they begin to compromise to sustain numbers - Many churches have adopted the "market driven" approach – i.e., Find out what people want and give it to them - WHAT EVER THAT IS! — Many churches of Christ are doing the same things! Can the church fight apathy and materialism by feeding people's carnal appetites? Has the word of God lost it’s power & effectiveness? What should the churches response be to the populace and its increasing hunger for an “experience” & disinterest in the truth?  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 5/17/2015

“Buy The Truth And Sell It Not” - [Proverbs 23:23] - There are many enemies of the truth these days, but the biggest may not be who we think! Too many professing Christians “sell the truth” for cheap, temporary pleasure and Satan’s deceptive lies! Where can the truth be found?

“Saved Like Noah" - [Baptism also now saves us … 1 Peter 3:18-22] - Many strive to explain the apostle Peter’s words in the above text in ways that negate that which he affirms. This study is a detailed examination of this text — 1) what is meant by the type / antitype construction of verses 20 and 21?  — 2) What does Peter mean when he says, “baptism also now saves us?” — 3) What is the meaning of the parenthetical phrase "(not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God)? - I realize many may disagree with the conclusions we have reached, but I pray that all will prayerfully and sincerely consider this study and accept that which is the truth.

“What Is Real, True, Genuine Repentance?" - [According To God’s Word — Matthew 21:28-32] - Repentance is a command of God / Repentance is something God wills that every one of us would do - Sadly, very few are willing to actually, truly REPENT!

In this study we examine what repentance IS NOT - then  five characteristics of genuine repentance. -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 4/19/2015

“Knowing God’s Will" - [How Can I Know Which Choice Is The Right Choice?] -  We are often presented with difficult choices. The godly person seeks to please God in the choices he/she makes, thus the godly person desires to know God’s will in the matter. God is aware of our struggles & needs - God does indeed lead His people today [the question is NOT if, but HOW!] - How can we be confident in the choices we make being God’s will?   MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/22/2015

“Fellowship In Matters of Judgment"  - (Romans 14:1-15:7) - [The Realm of Liberty Should Not Be A Warzone] - Romans 14 has been grossly abused by those teaching or defending error . . .  Romans 14 teaches the need for tolerance & Forbearance with brethren who differ in matters of indifference to God . . . Attempts to put sinful practices & false doctrine in Romans 14 violates Text & Context. -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 1/25/2015

In fact, a person can be moral, sober, conservative, benevolent, dependable, & even religious & yet be very worldly. Materialism is worldly - but even further - if one is NOT IN Christ - that one is WORLDLY - NOT Spiritual! - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 9/28/2014

Is It REALLY ARROGANT To Say - ’This Is The Truth?’"- The popular attitude that I will call 'Skeptical humility’ says no one should be, or even can be certain or dogmatic about anything. This “mindset” is NOT REAL humility - but rank unbelief! It's not arrogant to have firm, immovable biblical convictions. In fact, it is our duty to come to strong, mature, biblically-informed convictions, & hold firmly to the truthMP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/13/2014

“Identifying A Scriptural Local Church" - (Selected Scriptures) - Far too many fail to make this their primary criteria when looking for a congregation to worship & work with. A scriptural local church can be identified because it follows the New Testament pattern. In order to identify a scriptural church, we MUST search the scriptures that we may know what the NT church looks like. - What was it called? What did it teach? How was it organized? How did it worship? What did it practice? - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 4/13/2014

“Divine Providence In The Life of Todays Christian" - (Selected Scriptures) - Problems are a part of life and how one handles these problems is related to his view of God. Believing in divine providence helps one to cope with the vicissitudes of life. The word itself never appears in Holy Scripture in reference to God, (Acts 24:1), but the concept is found Throughout the Bible. This lesson examines what the Bible teaches about this important subject. - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/9/2014

“Worshipping God In Spirit & In Truth” - (John 4:19-26) - What does Jesus mean when he says, “those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth?” Most suggest that it means, “with the right attitude and proper form.” Whie this is true - I want to suggest that there is more involved in the meaning than this. MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 1/26/2014

“Godly Living In Perilous Times" - (2 Timothy 1:3-4:18) Can any Bible believer doubt that we are living in perilous times?

"Why Does God Allow Christians To Suffer?" - The unbelieving critic often asks this question as an argument against God: “Why would a God who is all-good & loving, all-knowing, and all-powerful allow bad things to happen to good people?” However, the question may also be asked in sincerity: “How could God let this happen to me and to mine, why would God not stop this pain and help me?” This lesson examines the question and gives scriptural answers - MP3 / KEYNOTE / PPT / PDF - (8/18/2013)

"Losing It All To Gain Christ" - The Deal of A Lifetime! What is MOST important to us? What do we value MOST? It is obvious what was important to Paul i.e., JESUS - all He is, all He has, & all He has promised! With regard to profit and loss, we, as the apostle Paul, should view everything as loss that we may gain the Lord. Our only gain (profit) is in knowing the Lord, being in the Lord, living for the Lord & living with the Lord! – (Philippians 3:1-16) – KEYNOTE / PPT / PDF - (3/31/2013)

"Church Discipline - Dealing With The Disorderly" - (That Their Souls Might Be Saved) - Withdrawing fellowship from those who walk disorderly is a command of the Lord, but what does that mean? How should the faithful view and treat those who have been withdrawn from? These are not easy questions, but they are important questions – and the Bible gives us the answers. (Text examined: Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15; Galatians 6:1,2). MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF / VIDEO - 3/17/2013
