The Church (Part 4): The Local Church

We have come a long way on our journey to better understand the church. So far we have focused on mostly the spiritual Church. We have addressed:   The Trail of Blood - The history of the church from Acts 2 until today, the martyrs gave their lives to the cause of Christ, and the persecution… Continue reading The Church (Part 4): The Local Church

Things Not Seen

“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18 Contemporary Americans are inundated with “things” which are seen. We concern ourselves with houses (and their furnishing),… Continue reading Things Not Seen

The Church (Part 3): The Churches of Revelation

The first week of the lessons on the church, we discussed the Trail of Blood – how Christianity began, how the disciples and early Church was martyred for the faith and how the Baptist line transcends denominations and runs parallel to Catholics and Protestants who both persecuted our Baptist forefathers.  Last time, we discussed types… Continue reading The Church (Part 3): The Churches of Revelation

The Church (Part 2): The Body, The Bride, and the Battalion

Last time, we discussed the “Trail of Blood,” and how our Christian forefathers faced persecution and martyrdom for standing firm in their Faith. The history of the Church and the line of the Baptists is riddled with suffering and sacrifice for the cause of Christ. Now, society is collapsing into carnality as our churches are… Continue reading The Church (Part 2): The Body, The Bride, and the Battalion

When COVID hit last year, I heard many Christians appeal to the Church as an excuse to abandon their church – because the “Church is not a building." However, the local church has… Continue reading The Church (Part 1): Trail of Blood

Dead Bodies and Evil Spirits

Our bodies are animated clumps of dead flesh. The second we are conceived we begin the dying process. However, the spirit within us which is also dead can be made alive through salvation in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:10-11). This is the very concept that we find in John 3:5 when Jesus says "Except a man… Continue reading Dead Bodies and Evil Spirits

The Christian Celebrity

Our churches have become carbon copies of one another. You can attend almost any church from any denomination and you will have a similar experience, from the look to the music to the structure of the services. The various denominations are beginning to blend back together. Protestants, who broke away from Catholic heresies are melding… Continue reading The Christian Celebrity
