Why Good People Won't Go to Heaven - Romans 10:1-4 - May 20, 2006 - 765

I’d like to talk to you about who goes to heaven. We all know that the Bible teaches the reality of heaven and the reality of hell. Jesus himself spoke of both places many times. All of us, I’m sure, would like to go to heaven if we could. Even if you are not a Christian, I’m s ... More

The Curse on Canaan And the Problem of Racism - Genesis 9:18-29 - Sep 8, 2002 - 237

It has been a long time since I addressed the topic of racism from the pulpit. The last time I devoted an entire sermon to this issue was in March, 1994.

The Holy Spirit and the Gift of Tongues - Article C: The Holy Spirit - Various - Feb 23, 1992 - 749

There are two problems a pastor faces whenever he comes to speak on a topic as controversial as speaking in tongues. The first is that the subject is so vast that he cannot hope to cover it completely. It would take a book to fully consider all the pertinent issues, and if I wrote such a book, I d ... More

Of all the names that the Bible gives and of all the names that believers give to Jesus Christ, none is more precious than the name Redeemer.

Men and Women in Biblical Perspective - Genesis 1-3 - Oct 18, 1992 - 132

I find myself in a peculiar position this morning. No matter what I say, or how carefully I say it, someone is bound to disagree with me. But that doesn’t begin to cover the subject.

God Plays No Favorites - Romans 3:27-31 - Apr 5, 1992 - 287

Every good teacher knows that the first law of learning is repetition. Say it, then say it again, then in case they didn’t get it, say it again. Say it loudly, whisper it softly, say it plainly, say it in English, then say it in Spanish. Whatever it takes, say it over and over and over again, ... More

Do Not Neglect Your Spiritual Gift - 1 Timothy 4:14 - Jan 11, 2007 - 165

Ever since the new year rolled around, I have been pondering one verse of Scripture and thinking about its implications for life and ministry, and what it would mean if we started to take it seriously. That verse is 1 Timothy 4:14. Here it is in several different versions: “Do not neglect ... More

Create in Me a Clean Heart: A Serious Call to Sexual Purity - Apr 25, 2007

Unfading Glory - 2 Corinthians 3:7-11 - Feb 10, 2010 - 1238
