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
Written by Ben Winslett

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.

A Monday Morning Thought Over Coffee In The Wake Of Homosexual Marriage in Alabama PDF Print E-mail

I wrote the following as a "status" on my facebook page this morning, so it isn't intended to be an essay. At any rate, perhaps this will supply a little food for thought and tug us back to a scriptural perspective.

 


The Christian changes culture, not through protest or activism, but through conversion. Our charge is to teach those born of God the work and will of Christ for God's glory and their personal, individual deliverance from bondage, regardless of culture. As a side effect, the world around us is turned upside down. So you could say, the Christian changes the culture while not even directly seeking to impact it!

 

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. John 18:36


For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)... 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
