A Correction PDF Print E-mail

It seems that I once again made the morning headlines (lol) on the disgruntled PB gossip blog, The Old Baptist Test. I generally ignore the complaints or accusations of Stephen Garrett and his contributors, because I believe what such men really want is attention. If you feed him, he'll keep coming back. Garrett, Fralick, and the like are entitled to their opinions and I am happy to let them be. I wish them no ill and harbor no animosity against them. That being said, in his rebuke of me today, Garrett made a few remarks that were false. He even reported that I said things which I did not say. [I'm honored he is so bothered by what I preach that he apparently watches my sermons to pick them apart.] So, in the spirit of correcting the record, I am replying here on my blog. We all have pet peeves, and perhaps my greatest is when men say things about me which are untrue. Whether Mr Garrett misunderstood or is simply misrepresenting me because he cannot help himself, I have no way of knowing. Either way, I feel it worth issuing one reply. I have no intention of continuing a dialogue with him or his cohorts.

God's Covenant of Love PDF Print E-mail

“Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine.” (Ezekiel 16:8)


When God saw his chosen people in a dead, stillborn condition (Ezek. 16:1-7), God’s reaction was not apathy but love. God willingly chose to show love, but he chose to further obligate himself with a covenant of love with his people. God entered into the marital covenant where Christ would eventually come into this world to redeem his bride from death.

Deacons' Charge PDF Print E-mail

Recently at Flint River, we were blessed to ordain a couple of deacons. Our service was a bit more abbreviated than the traditional, all day ordination. We met at 10, had a half hour each of singing and preaching respectively, and then went directly into the ordination. Due to the nature of the day, my charge to the two brothers was more brief than perhaps we might be accustomed to (just over 17 minutes). But, for what it's worth, I did feel inclined to share it with you here on MTZ.

Regarding the Passing of Mr Bush PDF Print E-mail

Periodically over the past two days, I have watched news coverage of the various funeral services and ceremonies for President George H.W. Bush. This has been very intriguing for a number of reasons. For one, it is rare to witness such respect given to a departed individual. The processions each time the casket was moved were reminiscent of something you would see in a movie. This was a special moment, rare for any and every one of us. It was such a display of dignity and respect; combining civilians, clergy, military, musicians, and elected leaders all in one place for one purpose.

MTZCAST | Episode 12 | The Financial Support of the Ministry PDF Print E-mail

Sometimes, the financial support of the ministry can be a controversial topic. On one hand, some object to the practice altogether. On the other hand, you have charlatans who take advantage of it and fleece the sheep. In this episode, we consider what the Bible has to say about the matter as our sole authority.
