“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

“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

“Characteristics of A Strong Church - [Karl VanDevender] -  MP3 - 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

“David Strengthened Himself In The Lord His God" - [1 Samuel 30:1-31] - We all need encouragement from time to time. [Times of discouragement, (loss of health, done wrong by a friend etc.)  Times of uncertainty, (when we lose our sense of control)  - Times of stress, (when our load seems heavier than we can bear). - Times of crisis & fear. (When all seems lost … )] - David found himself in a crisis and strengthened himself in the Lord His God- Where do you turn when you NEED to be encouraged? - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 5/10/2015

“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? What is needed for us to find it? One should spare no pains, cost or sacrifice to obtaining the truth & keeping it safe. We learn what a thing is worth to US by what WE are willing to pay for it! How valuable is the truth to you? - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 5/3/2015

“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. (If anyone has any questions about this lesson, or other materials on this site - please contact me  - DM) - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 4/23/2015

“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! Repentance has often been referenced as “the hardest command!” Why? What is so difficult about repentance? In this study we examine what repentance IS NOT - then  five characteristics of genuine repentance. -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 4/19/2015

“The Timely & The Timeless” - [Ecclesiastes 3:1-17] - The book of Ecclesiastes teaches us that life on earth, from a materialist point of view … all labor, (i.e. every thought & effort towards material reward) is ultimately, in the final analysis, worthless. Therefore, the conclusion of the all important question, “what is life about and why am I here,” is answered in chapter 12:13,14, "Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.” Things under the sun have their proper order, purpose & consequence. Each and every one of us will answer to God, and be held accountable for how we use the things God has given us. - Will we choose the “Timely, or the Timeless?” - (cf. Mat 16:26) -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 4/12/2015

“What Will You Reap?" - [We Reap What We Sow] - (Luke 8:5-15; 2 Cor 9:6; Gal 6:7-9) - We Are All Sowing – but to what end? The principle of reaping according to what we have sown is as old as creation & applies in both the material & spiritual realm. This lesson examines three areas in which we are all sowing - (Sowing The Seed / Use of Material Things / Thoughts & Deeds) What will you reap in these three areas? –   MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/29/2015

“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

“The Futility of Rejecting God’s Word" - [Jeremiah 36:1-32] - Unbelief doesn’t change the fact that God’s word is true! God’s Word IS: Indestructible, Everlasting & Unalterable. - God’s word will last forever as originally given- and to reject God’s word is to do so at our own peril. Let us also realize that to attempt to alter God’s word, to change it in any way is to reject it. Let us believe & obey God’s word as it IS! -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/15/2015

“When Jesus Is My All In All" - [Colossians 3:1-17] -  What is Jesus Christ to you? Does Jesus Christ “REALLY” have pre-eminence in your life - (Actions speak louder than words!) - When Jesus is TRULY our ALL in ALL - we will be focussed on Him, will  put off the old man with his sin & put on the new man according to the image of Christ! - We will worship in spirit & truth & submit every word & deed to Christ’s authority? - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/8/2015

“A False Sense of Security" - [Being Aware of the Danger] - [Amos 6:1-8] - To feel secure is to be free from anxiety, doubt and fear - To feel SAFE! - It is not pleasant to live in this world without feeling secure - so we put a lot of effort into “feeling” secure - even if there is no substance in what makes us “FEEL” secure. Feeling secure does not mean we are! Many Today “FEEL” Secure BUT ARE LOST! - Feeling secure can lead to overconfidence and carelessness - God wants us to BE SECURE! (the first seven minutes of the audio file has a buz, but much better quality after that) - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 3/1/2015

“Let God Be True, But Every Man A Liar" - [Romans 3:1-8] - God is always true, right, and justified in His actions - When I AGREE with God I am in the right! - If I DISAGREE with Him I am always wrong! - There are many who disregard God’s word, reject it and seek things that are directly opposed to its clear teaching. (Origins? Morality? Worship? Salvation?) - We MUST return to, and hold steadfastly to God’s word, which is THE TRUTH - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 2/22/2015

“Lessons From Paul’s Appearance Before Felix"  - (Acts 24:22-27) - Gospel is universal … All need it / Gospel is rational … Reason with it / Courageously speak what people need / Truth should terrify the lost / Do not delay … Obey now! -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 2/8/2015

“Profanity - It Is A Big Deal!” - Disrespecting That Which Is Holy Is A Serious Matter - Profanity involes more than the things we may say - We can be guilty of profane speech - profane worship & profane behavior. --  God demands we respect His person, His word, & His institutions! We can ONLY honor God by faithfully serving & obeying Him! - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 2/1/2015

“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

“Not A Hoof Left Behind  - (Exodus 8:25-10:26) One of the devil’s favorite tools is compromise - There are times when compromise is good & necessary - but there are also times when it is forbidden & destructive! - In areas of doctrine & sin - we must hold rigidly to God's demands. We cannot allow Satan to control ANY area of our lives. -  MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 1/18/2015

“Fellowship - Basis, Nature & Limit"  - [1 John 1:1-10] - The basis for “Fellowship” is the “TRUTH.” When we depart from the truth – we set in motion that which will destroy our fellowship with God & each other - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 1/11/2015

“What God Has Joined Together, Let Not Man Separate” - (Mat. 19:6) - / Scripturally Married Husband & Wife / Christ & His Church & His Teaching / Faith & Works of Obedience / Grace & Law of Christ / Spirit / Love & Obedience To God / Christ / Scriptural Baptism & Salvation / Spirit & Truth In Worship & Service / Faithfulness & Eternal Life / Unbelief (Disobedience) & Condemnation - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 11/23/2014

“David’s Oxcart & Uzzah’s Error" - [2 Samuel 6:1-11; 1 Chronicles 13:1-14] - David’s attempt to move the ark to Jerusalem was unsuccessful - Uzzah loses his life - David is afraid of the Lord . . . What did David do wrong? What did David learn? How could David accomplish his desire & please God?

“The Folly of Worldliness" - [1 John 2:15-17] - A person who drinks alcohol socially, uses drugs, Curses, goes clubbing, wears immodest clothing, etc.  is worldly … but we need to realize a person can be worldly & not do ANY of these things! 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

“Keep Your Heart With All Diligence” - [Proverbs 4:23] - This lesson seeks to answer the questions: What does the term “heart” reference in the Bible? Can we “keep” / “guard” our heart?

Can We Trust The Text of The New Testament?” -  [The Reliability  of The New Testament Text] - Has The NT Text Been Corrupted? Can we know that the NT we have is the same as it was when written? Historically there have been MANY enemies of the scriptures. The onslaught has escalated in our day. With the aid of technology, skeptics have saturated academia & the internet with false & skewed information. With the growing militance of the  modern skeptic, and the rise of atheism & agnosticism, this kind of study is crucial - especially for younger people who have yet to develop a strong faith in God & His word. MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/31/2014

“Does God’s Word Scare You?” - Warnings Are Necessary & Ought To Be Appreciated! Many believe & heed God & the warnings He has given us in His word! Many more ignore God & His warnings! MANY Have Everything To Fear!! What is your attitude toward God’s word?  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/24/2014

“Actions Speak Louder Than Words” - (John 10:31-42) - The hostile crowd picked up stones to stone Jesus (10:31, cf. 8:59) because they understood the implications of His claims, (cf. 10:33; 5:18). - They understood Him - they just didn’t believe Him - (cf. 5:18; 8:57-59). Jesus’ responds using a method of argumentation common in Rabbinic discussions - He argues from the lesser to the greater using the scripture to defend His claim to be the Son of God. This text clearly confirms Jesus’ claim to deity  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 8/17/2014

The Challenge of Personal Evangelism” [The Example of Philip The Evangelist] Persoanl evangelism should not be viewed with negativity, dread & skepticism. It is true that many challenges & obstacles exist for those of us trying to actively teach the gospel, but nothing should deter us from sharing our faith with others. If Jesus means everything to me - I will try to make Him mean something to someone else MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/27/2014

Praying Like Paul” [What Can We Learn From The Prayers of Paul?] In most of Paul’s letters, he includes a prayer for his readers. Paul’s prayers are instructional, inspirational, & powerful. Paul’s heart was fixed on the essential things, things true, important & indispensable. Paul’s prayers, then, become a mirror in which we can examine ourselves. - - - Are we concerned about the same things as Paul? MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 7/20/2014

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

”Judging Righteous Judgment” - (John 7:1-24) - Every impenitent sinner knows Jesus’ prohibition against Judging in Mat 7:1 and quote it often. How ironic that those who do such are the ones who are actally guilty of violating the Lord’s teaching. - MP3 / PPT /  KEYNOTE  / PDF  - /5/11/2014

“Noah" - Rejecting The Truth Does Not Change The Truth” - (Genesis 6:5-7:1; Hebrews 11:7; 2 Peter 2:5; 3:1-12; 1 Peter 3:18-22; Matthew 24:36-39) - Noah was A  Preacher of Righteousness but most rejected his preaching & thus destroyed by the flood. Sadly,  the same is true today when Christ is preached . . . - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 5/4/2014

”It Is Well” - (Psalm 46:1-11) In good times or bad, when peace like a river attendeth my soul, or when sorrows like sea billows roll - the faithful child of God can proclaim - “It Is Well With My Soul!" MP3 / PPT /  KEYNOTE  / PDF - 4/27/2014

“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

“Why We Do NOT Use Mechanical Musical Instruments In Our Worship To God” - (Hebrews 13:15) - This lesson attempts to answer one of the most commonly asked questions members of the church of Christ are asked. The principles established in a previous lesson, (Worshipping God In Spirit & In Truth), are built upon and applied to this subject. Hope that all will benefit from this important study, whether you are a member of the church of Christ or not. MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 2/2/2014

“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? Atheism, Agnosticism, Postmodernism, Pragmatism, Worldliness, False Doctrine & Division are all on the rise!

“The New Birth” - (John 3:1-21) - In order for one to enter into the kingdom of heaven one must be born again, i.e., born from above. What is the new birth? How can one be born again? Does “born of water” have reference to water baptism?   - AUDIO / KEYNOTE / PPT / PDF - (12/1/2013)

"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)

"Preaching Jesus Christ And Him Crucified" - (1 Cor. 1:23; 2:2) - Many say: "We Ought To Preach the Man, (Jesus), and NOT the plan." True enough - Jesus IS at the center of ALL TRUE GOSPEL PREACHING! But preaching that ignores HIS teaching is NOT gospel preaching, (Mt 28:18,19; 2 Tim 4:2; Acts 20:27) - Our preaching must include both the man and the plan! – MP3 KEYNOTE PPT PDF (8/4/2013)

"God's Silence Does Not Mean He Is Absent" - Lessons From The Book of Esther - An amazing true story filled with both good and bad examples. We learn of courage, faith and sacrifice, as well as the evils of hatred, pride and greed. Even though God is not directly mentioned, we can clearly see in the book of Esther God working providentially to protect His people that His will be accomplished. – MP3 / KEYNOTE / PPT / PDF - (4/14/2013)

"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

"The Agony of The Cup" - One of the most moving experiences recorded concerning the life of Christ took place in the garden of Gethsemane. No one who is serious about being a Christian can remain unmoved as they think of Jesus’ agony in the Garden. But why did he “drink the bitter cup”? Because he loved us so! It was our sin, indeed it was my sin (!) that took him there. (Matthew 26:30-56; Mark 14:26-50; Luke 22:33-46) MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF / VIDEO - 3/10/2013

"What Must I Do To Be Saved?" - When you ask the majority of religious leaders this question you will get several different answers and most of the time the wrong answer. This is the MOST important question anyone could ever ask? So isn't it REALLY important to get the right answer? The right answer can ONLY be found in the Bible - so what answer does the Bible give? - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF / VIDEO - 2/17/2013

"I Would Be Happy If . . ." - (Upon What Does Your Happiness Depend?) - Happiness is something we all desire - but too many are looking for it in all the wrong places! What is happiness? What brings about unhappiness? How can we achieve true happiness?  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 1/20/2013

"Politics of Pilgrims" - What role, if any should Christians play in our government? Do we understand the the implications & obligations of being citizens of heaven? (Phili 3:17-4:1)  - MP3 / PPT / KEYNOTE / PDF - 11/11/2012
