Let it be noted that I don’t write this with a self-righteous attitude like, “How could they do that?” Regretfully, decades ago, I utilized the professional services of a psychologist, who referred me to a psychiatrist, who gave me prescriptions for psychotropic drugs. But as the old adage says, “If only I knew then, what

In this Podcast, I will show a video of Elders Biblically disciplining their fellow Elder in the presence of the congregation. It’s bitter-sweet to watch, but this is a good witness before the Church and a good and testimony to the world. Most importantly, please pray for the departing Pastor and all others involved.
Is country music icon Dolly Parton a false convert? Fact is, if an unregenerate person or an unrepentant Christian sit in a healthy Biblical Church, they will either be offended and leave, be convicted saved and converted, and/or be convicted repent and be restored. It appears Dolly does not have that type of Church. Let’s
The signs of a healthy & biblical Church & how I used my COVID stimulus funds to resist socialism – Podcast #41 Update: Here’s one of the ways I give via this giving campaign.
In this Psalm, we will see a God who saves, a God who restores, who leads, who provides, who disciplines, who loves, and who protects and secures. I also spoke about the principle of wolves, sheep, and sheepdogs, and how I’ve applied the sheepdog principle (or discipline) in Churches. In one incident I had to
I wholeheartedly agree with Ryan Denton’s message/warning. It is my personal opinion that the “ministry” that has done the greatest disservice to the Lord’s Church in this regard, is Ray Comfort’s Way of the Master ministry. For many years they have trained-up hundreds (maybe even thousands) of women to preach the Gospel in the streets.
This video will cause me to lose more friends. But in spite of its unpopularity, a Christian must espouse a Biblical worldview, and take a Christian stance. This is also how a Christian should demonstrate, and apply Ephesians 5:1-21. I’m seeing an increase of YouTube channels that are known for decent Doctrine, but consistently sound
After spending a week reviewing many articles, videos, and Podcasts from various ‘professing’ Christians regarding the Chick-fil-A saga, I again saw nothing but compromise, and a lack of discernment. But in this Podcast I reveal that the Salvation Army is pro homosexual, including gay marriage. I also share some experiences as a police officer, and
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. Nicholas Black, and published by New Growth Press and Harvest
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. Therefore, this teaching will not be ‘watered down’ with contemporary fruffles. We will learn of the dangers of ‘walking’ with non-saved ‘friends.’ We will also learn how to ‘Biblically’ love
A message about Elders for Elders, and then my 10-point criteria which is for all Christians. “Consider the tyranny of it. This inordinate lusting, it doth never rest satisfied; serve it once, it will call again and again; and if it be not followed to the end, resteth as much displeased as if it had
I often use the ESV translation. But like all other translations, it has its strengths and weaknesses. For example in 1 Timothy chapter 3, the Apostle Paul laid down the standard for the ‘minimal qualifications’ to be an Elder or Pastor. In verse 3a it says that an Elder or Pastor, must not be a
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.
