Resurrection Week Meditations PDF Print E-mail

In the sense of a traditional "blog" entry, allow me to share my personal meditations and study from the past week.

 

If you caught the entry from last Sunday, you know I had an interaction with a couple of Jehovah's Witnesses on my front lawn in which I basically "preached" them to the curb and up the sidewalk. The main substance of our disagreement was the identity of Jesus Christ. We believe, as scripture teaches, that Jesus is the Word made flesh, God's only begotten Son, the second person of the Godhead. They insist however, that Jesus was not divine, but an inferior being to God. This is one of the oldest heresies in Christianity, finding it's first home in Gnosticism and then Arianism. While I obviously enjoyed the discussion (if you dare call it a "discussion") with the JW ladies, it also set my heart up for a very enjoyable week of reflection on Christ, His cross, and His finished Work which I'd like to share with you.

Spend much time in the comment sections of a news websites? How about observing debates over hot button topics on facebook? I try not to, as internet debates are an enormous drain on spiritual energy and time. Yet, occasionally I forget my self-imposed rule and get drawn in.

 

Isn't it amazing how the mind of the unbeliever works? When a Christian disagrees based upon conviction or adherence to the word of God, the unbeliever will slam them as a bigot. Name calling ensues. Slamming begins. Here's a hypothetical example:

A Sunday Afternoon Encounter With the Jehovah's Witnesses PDF Print E-mail

Allow me to share an experience I had after church today. This isn't an essay but a rough recollection of the event, so forgive if the words I've penned in brief don't detail it clearly.

 

What happens when an Old Baptist preacher pulls up to his house and the Jehovah's Witnesses are standing on his porch? Evidently, he preaches to them all the way down the walkway, drive, and up the sidewalk!

 

It starts like this. I see them as I pull in the drive, exit the van with Bible in hand, and walk up to them. We're all cordial, and they invite me to their Easter service. I told them thanks, but I won't be attending because, as I understand it, they don't believe Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.

I debated sharing this, as it undoubtedly will seem like self promotion, which I avoid (please notice the lack of sermons in our archive preached by me personally). So, allow me to preface this by saying that I don't desire to build a "following" nor am I attempting to become a celebrity preacher. :) Here goes:

Does your congregation desire a Primitive Baptist radio program in your area?

Article Review: Two Areas Where Pastors Are Least Trusted PDF Print E-mail

I'm not in the habit of publishing reviews of Christian articles or books. For starters, I don't have the time to engage in lengthy reading of any and every idea found on the internet. At the same time, if the Biblical fundamentals of an author are suspect, I would rather not have the influence of their thoughts. Besides that, it comes across as being too negative. That being said, allow me to don my "curmudgeon hat" this morning as I review some ideas presented in an article a friend in the ministry recently shared with me.
