The Scripture Had to Be Fulfilled: Can We Still Believe the Bible? - Acts 1:15, 20 - May 10, 1998 - 639

It is sometimes asked why the early church grew so explosively.

While there were doubtless other disciples scattered across Israel, this ... More

The Best Defense for a Bad Memory - Oct 3, 2004

“An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips” (Proverbs 24:26). This verse will suggest different things to different people. What exactly does it mean and what is the relationship between an honest answer and a kiss on the lips? I think there are three points of comparison: 1) Just as i ... More

Is there a better story in the Bible than the story of Jonah? Generations of Sunday School children have listened with wide-eyed amazement at the story of the fish that caught a man.

Do You Know Why You Were Born? - Genesis 37 - Sep 11, 2013 - 1490

We begin with the words of Mark Twain who said, “There are two great days in a person’s life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.”   One is easier than the other. One is a date in time. It’s October 4 or March 29 or February 12 or September 26. It’s ... More

The Tongue: Life and Death Are In Your Mouth! - Proverbs 18:20-21 - Oct 9, 1994 - 618

Proverbs has a lot to say about what we say. In fact, the subject of the tongue and how we use our words is perhaps the preeminent theme of this book.

The Green-Eyed Monster - I Samuel 18-19 - Sep 3, 2000 - 349

There are two words you need to keep in mind as you read this sermon. They are almost-but-not-quite identical. One is the word jealousy, the other is the word envy.

Acts of the Apostates - Jude 1-25 - Sep 7, 1997 - 461

I’d like to begin my message with a word we don’t often use. Though it has been around for many generations, this particular word unfamiliar to most of us. Few of us use it in ordinary conversationsand some of us have probably never heard the word at all. It is a word with an ugly, omino ... More
