Other Recent Lessons

“The Kind of Preaching That Pleases God”—(Successful Preachers in The Bible)— When it come to“preaching,” most measure success VERY differently from how God measures it! Most people are advocates of style over substance, smiles instead of rebuke, embelished emotional storys rather than scripture, compromise without the bold proclamation of truth. This lesson will challenge how most people view preachers & preaching. —AUDIO/ PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF— 3/12/2017

“Paul’s Apostolic Authority & His Love”(2 Corinthians 12:11-21) Paul loved the brethren in Corinth, and it grieved him that they did not give him the support he deserved.

“The Nature of Saving FAITH”(3)(Romans 10:1-18) The Bible is clear that all who are saved are saved through FAITH. The question under consideration in this study is“When Does Faith Save?”— Romans 10:9 & 10state that one must cofess with their mouth & believe in their heart UNTO salvation / righteousness. Verse 13 says that "whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." SO when we answer the question,“what does it mean to call upon the name of the Lord?” we will have the answer to WHEN FAITH SAVES. —AUDIO/ PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF— 3/5/2017

“The Nature of Saving FAITH”(2)(Romans 3:19-5:5) In Romans 4 Paul is contrasting two opposing SYSTEMS,“FAITH & WORKS.” The“works” system cannot save a sinner because it demands perfection - and no amount of work can undo the sinners sin. The“Faith”system on the other hand implements forgiveness through Jesus thus providing justification on the grounds of God’s grace. Abraham was justified by the system of faith, not by the system of perfect Law keeping. But what kind of FAITH does the system of faith require? What KIND of FAITH did Abraham Have? —AUDIO/ PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 2/26/2017

“Demonstrating Reverence For God”-(Nehemiah 8:1-12; Hebrews 12:25-29) What does your attitude & actions toward God’s word reveal about your reverence for Him? What does your attitude & actions toward worshipping God reveal about your reverence for Him? --AUDIO/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 2/5/2017

“Christ Is, Therefore We Are …”-(2 Corinthians 3:16-18) What Does It Really Mean To Be A CHRISTIAN? What does it mean to follow Jesus? Are we striving to follow Jesus’ example when it comes to sacrificial service? Love? Respect for the scriptures? Hating sin & loving righteousness?

“Living A Spirit Filled Life" -[Romans8:12-17; Ephesians 5:15-21]— Clearly the Bible teaches that the Holy Spiirit indwells, influences and leads the child of God.

“Matters of Distinction" -[1 Peter 2:9,10; Titus 2:11-14; 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Romans 12:1,2; 1 Peter 1:13-17]—As people of God, we are to be DIFFERENT from those who are not.We are not to allow ourselves to be “conformed to this world" in our thinking, teaching or deeds.Our distinctiveness comes from following God’s pattern, obeying His word, transforming our minds and deeds to be in harmony with God’s will. —MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 12/04/2016

“The Suffering Servant" - (Isaiah 52:13-53:12) -There is great apologetic value in Isaiah 53. Written nearly 700 years before Christ, the prophet clearly and accurately describes the suffering of God's Servant and the purpose for His suffering. But more than that, this text provides amazing theological and doctrinal statements fundamental to our salvation. God’s Servant would be rejected & despised / abused & tormented beyond words by wicked men. People still reject the REAL Jesus for the same reasons many in His day did. His suffering was for our sins - ourtransgressions - our peace and our healing.Our path to peace and healing is ONLY through the suffering Servant - Jesus Christ. -We have all sinned and all desperately need salvation - therefore we are all responsible for the suffering Jesus endured for us.MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 07/03/2016

“The Demands of Grace”- (Titus 2:1-15) - There are few, if any, Bible doctrines abused and perverted more than the doctrine of grace. Join us as we examine what the Bible actually teaches about the“grace of God.” Any teaching about grace that diminishes the authority of Christ and the essentiality of our obedience to Him is a perversion of the truth. Grace does NOT give the Christian a license to sin or live any way he wishes. Grace has demands. Grace demands faith in Jesus, repentance toward Jesus and obedience to Jesus. -MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 04/24/2016

“Times, They Are Changing”-(The State & Direction of Modern "Professed Christianity") How should We Respond? - (2 Tim 3:1-5; 4:1-5)- MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 02/21/2016

How does baptism“ ave us?” These are some of the questions we will seek to give Bible answers to in this lesson. - MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 01/17/2016

“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 anypagan culturementioned in the Bible. However - this lesson has to do with idolatry in a different lightthan whatmost 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

“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

“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.

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.

How did it worship? What did it practice?-MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 4/13/2014

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? Atheism, Agnosticism, Postmodernism, Pragmatism, Worldliness, False Doctrine & Division are all on the rise! Let us consider seven exhortations from Paul which will help and encourage us to be faithful! -MP3/PPT/KEYNOTE/PDF- 1/12/2014

"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)
