These great commands by our Lord are rarely truly applied, obeyed and/or practiced (at least from my observations). Therefore I put this sermon together for the Lord’s people. I did an exposition of the Text, and shared several experiences, and how I applied this passage to them. The sermon notes to this teaching are available

Before you read this news article, I wanted to share some of my own thoughts. Bear in mind I have only read two articles, one by The Christian Post and the article below. I have done no further investigation. In the context of jurisprudence, the person in this article should be considered innocent, until proven
I believe this review has provided an opportunity to teach, discern, edify, sanctify Christ’s bride (Holy Spirit willing), and to glorify the Lord. Recently while at a particular venue, the Pastor recommended a booklet being made available entitled ‘Homosexuality and the Bible,’ authored by R.

As I prepared for this expository study (other than one scholar), I studied under the teachings of scholars from the 1400’s up to the 1800’s.

My video ‘Satan silences and deceives many regarding homosexuality, as well as heterosexual sins’ Are all sins equal to all other sins? A topical Bible study for my new YouTube playlist called, “From my pew to you.” In fear of God, for the glory of God, and by the grace of God.
My brief election sermon that perhaps would be heard from the pulpits of our Nation centuries ago By Bill Rhetts This post applies to Christians only, and does not apply to non- Christians; nor should we expect this from them. One of the worst characteristics that the Lord Jesus refuted, resisted, and rebuked; was hypocrisy.
As I write this blog post, I am reminded of the mind of Christ when He penned His seven letters to those seven churches. Out of those seven, Christ gave five of them a strong rebuke and warning. I am also reminded that a Biblical love will tell the truth, and will even oppose what
This video really hits home. Though I was not a ‘guest speaker’ at this church, let me share my similar experience with you. Two weeks ago my wife and I visited a church, the ‘First Congregational Church’ of Redlands. As we walked across the parking lot, we noticed that the entrance was lined with large
