I am, by request, doing a study in Romans with the guys and I wanted you to see this one in particular because it talks about study methods.


On August 11, 2019, Pastor Jon’s sermon was: “A couple of things I wished I had known about reading the Bible.” I am quite sure my Pastor’s learning and understanding came at great expense in theology school. The irony is, … Continue reading

Revelation 21:8, as for murderers, the immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and liars of all kinds.


Several years ago my mother, who is in heaven now, asked me if we were going to have to go through the tribulation. I said mom, Jesus told us that our lives would be filled with tribulations merely because we … Continue reading

Give these instructions to the church. 1 Ti 5:7 through 16.


When we finished 1 Timothy 5:6 we were given these instructions. Ignore the fact that it seems to speak only to widows because it does not. But the widow who lives only for pleasure is spiritually dead even while she … Continue reading

Do not complain, brethren, against one another. James 5:9-12.


When we ended our last study on James, we covered James 1-8. Let’s look at verses 7 and 8 quickly before we move on.  Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious … Continue reading
