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
Too many ‘believers’ wrongfully believe that being the “light” is making themselves visible, or hoping somehow the lost will “see Jesus inside of me.” And worse. Rather than Biblically exposing sin, they are accepting sin. Rather than applying a Biblical love and light, many ‘professing’ Christians are ‘making friends with the world, (in hopes to
I usually edit-out allot of what you see in this video. But I want others to see that I do not merely engage in what is known as “drive-by preaching” (though at times I will). I prefer to preach, teach, minister, and when possible, ‘disciple them.’ There was something special about the two ladies that
I first saw this video today on the ‘Two Wine Theory’ Facebook page. I then contacted Bible Baptist Church, and they were gracious enough to provide me with the embedded code for my web site. I am posting this with the expectation that his ‘part two’ will not compromise. 😉 Thank you Dr. Stone for

I have much more to say, but to avoid being too critical, I will refrain from many comments. But first is Wallace’s article.
In this video I share some of my Bible study tools, and an exhortation to study the Word of God on your own. Correction: I truly chopped up the years / centuries. My commentaries go back as far as the 1500’s.
This is a must read for Christians. Yes this is a serious problem today, as so many ‘professing’ Christians compromise. But I would be careful shifting all the blame to the “church.” The Lords truly saved blood bought born-again church is beautiful. The problem is due to unbiblical Soteriologies, these buildings that we wrongfully call
The Thin Blue Line vs the Thin Theological Line Whenever a ‘professing’ Christian frequently and consistently talks more about his sin(s), that he was allegedly “set free” from, that is always a red flag to me. When they constantly say “I used to do this,” or “I used to do that;” there’s a good chance they
