Before the Beginning

Before the Beginning

2019-11-1800:35:43

The Bible records in Genesis the Beginning of this space-time world.  But the Scriptures speak in many places of what was here before the Beginning, namely God and all that was associated with Him.  And as we consider the characteristics and the character of God, we can plainly see them infused in His creation, especially in mankind who was made in His image.  Much was going on before the Beginning 
Death in Two Acts

Death in Two Acts

2019-11-1100:34:41

Episode 127…"Death in Two Acts" - When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, did they die?  God had said they surely would, but Adam lived to be 930 years old!  What's with that?  To understand what happened with Adam (and with all of us), we need to understand that we are two-part beings made of both body and soul.  God cursed Adam and said that he would return to the dust from which he came, but what of his soul?  If we dig into scripture, we will find the answer to our question, as well as God's remedy to rescue us from death. 
Seeing the Beautiful

Seeing the Beautiful

2019-11-0500:32:27

(Episode 126) Jesus challenged His listeners (us today as well) whether they had a healthy/good eye or a bad eye.  By that He meant whether we looked for what is good in people and the world or what is evil.  With all of the evil and distressing distractions in the world, it is often difficult to see the good.  This is a ploy of the devil to keep us distraught.  We must learn to cultivate a good eye and to look for all that is beautiful in the world.  And there is plenty of loveliness to be seen!
Two Chairs

Two Chairs

2019-11-0500:36:22

Our "two chairs" visual represents two worldviews.  One is the atheistic naturalist view of reality, and the other is the theistic supernaturalist view.  The first excludes God altogether, and the second has God at the center of everything.  Each one of us will sit in one of these chairs and view life from one of these perspectives.  A person's worldview is the "lens" through which that person sees everything and orders their life.  It is their truth.  It is also one of the main reasons why there is so much conflict between people these days.
"It's The Gospel, Church"

"It's The Gospel, Church"

2019-10-2200:37:50

Jesus and His apostles ministered to the whole person - people were fed and healed, and they had the good news of the kingdom of heaven preached to them.  We seem to do rather well at taking care of the needs of the body, but often we neglect the soul.  Some of Jesus' final words demonstrate where our prime focus must be - to proclaim the gospel to all creation.  To fill the bellies of thousands and leave their souls empty is a tragedy.  It's the gospel that a weary and struggling world needs to hear! 
Wrestling With God

Wrestling With God

2019-10-1600:40:27

Life is filled with struggles of all kinds.  We struggle within ourselves with choices and responses to life situations.  We struggle with relating to others.  We even struggle with trying to understand God, and why He does or does not do certain things.  Jacob's life was one struggle after another.  His life is a picture of the life of every believer.  When he returned to Canaan, he wrestled with the angel - a snapshot of his whole life.  He was told: "...you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed."  Is this true of us?  Of you? 
The Grace of Giving

The Grace of Giving

2019-10-0800:32:10

 Our giving on the first day of the week is often misunderstood.  We tend to think our contribution is about material things and the rest of our worship (singing, prayer, Lord's Supper, etc) is about spiritual things.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  Our giving is a highly spiritual endeavor and is a reflection of our faith and trust in God who supplies our own needs.  It is grounded in the grace of God which has been shown toward us in a multitude of ways. 
Dishonoring God

Dishonoring God

2019-09-3000:29:43

"Dishonoring God" - When one thinks about the cross, suffering comes to mind.  But humiliation and shame were also part of being crucified.  Hebrews (12:2) tells us that Jesus despised the shame of the cross so as to complete His work.  But Jesus was dishonored and shamefully treated even before His actual crucifixion.  We would do well to consider how He was dishonored so as to avoid doing the same thing to Him even now. 
What About Global Warming?

What About Global Warming?

2019-09-2300:35:45

Global warming has been in the news a lot lately. Proponents warn that in 10, 12, 20 years that the earth will be uninhabitable. Could this be true? This is not an examination of the arguments on both sides of this issue, but a common sense inquiry from a biblical perspective. What of God's promise to Noah? What about the promised Day of Judgment? Would God just sit idly by in the heavens and watch mankind destroy itself? What do you say? 
Facing The Ugly

Facing The Ugly

2019-09-1600:43:05

 "Facing the Ugly" - The world is filled with ugly - sin, evil, wickedness, etc.  Sometimes we find it in ourselves!  How do we handle ugly?  How do you handle ugly?  Some people are so disgusted with it they just ignore it and don't want anything to do with it.  But if we want to overcome it, we have to face it no matter how awful it is.  We need to fight against it in ourselves and try to rescue others from it as well.  If we don't face the ugly, we'll never overcome it.
