Exhortations from the Pastor

Experience – Truth of the Matter

Recently, I was privileged to preach a message at Grace Baptist Church.  Below is the outline.  I could not wait to put out some of this because of the sweeping movement in our area that is teaching youth to rely and seek experience above truth.  It is imperative that we understand that the truth of…

Thinning Ourselves Out!

While so many within the “Fundamental” realm are bickering over nonsense, this world is still in dire need of what we have!  It is a continual frustration and struggle for me personally.  To watch those who are Independent Baptist take on each other as if they were mortal enemies is nauseating to say the least.…

2010 Winter Retreat – Part II

This past weekend, I was invited to speak for a Youth Winter Retreat for Calvary Baptist Church of Ashland, OH.  We were fresh off of our own Youth Winter Retreat with Bro. Bashore speaking, and apparently the planned speaker for the Calvary Youth Retreat had a tragic event take place in his life. It was…

The Comb-Over Still Works

Every Wednesday before the preaching service, the youth leaders have an icebreaker.  It is a time where the teens can have fun and fellowship.  This past Wednesday, the youth team had an interesting idea.  The teens were broken up into different teams, and each team was given some play-do.  The teams were going to be…

Undercover Boss

So, a new reality show is scheduled to begin February 7th.  Wow!  That was a shock.  The premise of the show is pretty interesting.  According to several adds, the CEO’s of several of America’s largest companies will go undercover and do the jobs of some of their employees.  This should make for some interesting TV,…

01.05.10 – It’s Time To Get Specific!

Over the last several years there is something that has been a growing trend within Christendom.  I only point out the last several years because this is when I began to study what I have called “Popular Christianity.” What I mean by “Popular Christianity” is a watered down approach to Who Christ is, and the…

01.04.10 – What a Day?

Things are not always as they seem, but when they are…well, it can all add up to make a difficult day.  What a day today has been, but “What a day that will be, when my Jesus I shall see!” Romans 8:18 – “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not…

01.03.10 – Unexpected

Today, following the evening service an unexpected event took place.  For some strange reason, my church family decided to recognize both me and my wife.  Recognizing my wife, well, I understand that; but I was truly humbled at how kind everyone was to us. There were many “thank you’s” and many kind words, but the…

  • Principles of the Word

    Principle speaks of the guiding Word of God. Principles, as set forth in the Word of God, form the foundation for faith and practice in becoming Christ-like.


    "For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
    - Hebrews 4:12
