WORTHLESS RELIGION

filed under , ,

Why Our Tongues Matter So Much To Our Church’s Peace It never ceases to amaze me. No matter how many times I read through the Bible it happens over and over again. I see something for the very first time. How it escaped me all those previous times I’ll never know. Reading through James recently [...]

A PERSONAL UPDATE

A dear self-professed atheist friend of mine follows my blog. This both humbles and encourages me. But he did recently complain about the content. “Too much religion. Not enough about you.” Just like my buddy. This post he will like, I think. I had to shut down the blog for a couple of weeks recently due [...]

GUARDIANS OF UNITY SET A GUARD WHERE IT COUNTS MOST

Five Guidelines for Controlling the Tongue to Safeguard Church Unity Few things stand to jeopardize our churches’ treasured oneness than our own runaway tongues.

A Proposed Document for Churches Serious about Preserving Peace Ephesians 4:3 remains the anchor verse for my blog site–eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

On discharge day after a week in the hospital for “Operation Robojaw,” one of my doctors made a point to  visit me that Sunday morning. The moment I met the man two months earlier my heart attached fast to him. Turns out he studies theology on the side in his spare time–at Southern Seminary online [...]

IS YOUR CHURCH LOVING?

How To Help Your Church Abound in Love I certainly hope so. It should be. Jesus declared love the distinguishing mark by which all others would know that we are His disciples (John 13:35). But here’s the deal. Paul prays in Phil. 1:9 that their church’s love may abound more and more. He exhorted another [...]

PHILIPPIANS: A PEACEMAKER’S MUST

by Pastor Curt on February 27, 2016
filed under , ,

Mastering the Letter As We Study the Book Last Sunday we embarked on a pulpit study of Paul’s epistle to the Philippians. This choice by our elders during my medical leave of absence thrills me. Why? The theme of peacemaking runs throughout it. We don’t get any further than 1:27 before Paul begs, so that [...]
