Ep.488: Should We Ask For Directions?
The Christian responsibility to stay on the path
Theme Scripture: Hebrews 12:13
If you are a guy, you know what I am talking about. Here you are, driving somewhere and somehow or other, you are not on the road or at the destination that you anticipated. Notice I didn’t say that you are lost; you are merely misplaced for the moment. What do you do? Many of us would simply try and figure it out – you know, keep driving until, well until… Well, Christianity can be that way. Sometimes we may get lost – there, I said it – sometimes we may get lost and require a turn around of sorts. How do we go about this? Fortunately, the instructions for such times are already written and all we have to do is go and look for them. Stay with us as we – two grown men - will ask for directions!!
Ep.487: How Do You Change the World?
God’s Plan, Tim Sandridge and MLK Jr.
Theme Scripture: Zechariah 4:6
Changing the world. I’m sure that many of you listening have thought about that at one time or another. What would we do, how would we do it, what results would we look for. This morning, we are going to talk about how to change the world from two standpoints; one, our personal world, that is positively affecting those around us. This approach was inspired by the passing of a dear friend of ours, who while only in his 40’s was taken by cancer. Tim left his mark – he changed the world around him and we want to honor that this morning by observing his methods. Second, we will look at God’s plan to change the world – the whole world and trace his methods as well. It will come as no surprise to learn the similarities between them. Stay with us as we learn just how to change the world!
Ep.486: Are the Human Soul and Spirit the Same?
Scripturally defining the human soul and spirit
Theme Scripture: Hebrews 4:12
To a large degree, human beings are somewhat of a mystery. It is amazing how much we know about our form of life and it is even more amazing how little we know about it. What about the human soul and the human spirit? What are they? Can they die? Can you have one without the other? What about the body? Where does that fit in? Does a soul need a body? Does a body need a soul? Stay with us as we look into the scriptural definitions of these things to try and find the answers. For such an old book, written over such a long period of time by so many different writers, it will amaze you how clear the answers are to these questions!
Ep.485: Where Did They Go Wrong?
Learning from the mistakes of Bible characters
Theme Scripture: Joshua 24:15
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could always make the right decisions, by clearly assessing our situations, thinking them through based on that assessment and acting in accordance with what is right? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could learn from examples of others, who have made mistakes so we could know how NOT to go wrong? Well, consider this a great day! This morning we will look at some biblical characters who did go wrong as well as some who did not. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to grasp the lessons from these real life experiences and put them in practice! Are you ready?
