Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 7: The Importance of Scripture

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 7: The Importance of Scripture

2 Kings 22 is one of the more subtly shocking chapters in Scripture. In it, the high priest *FINDS* the Book of the Law in some chamber of the Temple as they are engaged in renovations. The implication is the Israel and Judah went generations when even the priests did not not read Scripture, and seemingly, they weren't even aware that they were missing it. Their religious system went on for generations without studying the Word of God. This sermon applies that cautionary tales to our lives. Let no one who calls themselves Christian fail to constantly reinvest the actual Words of...

Sermon: Freedom of the Believer (June 9, 2024)

Sermon: Freedom of the Believer (June 9, 2024)

If the faithful Christian life for you is an impossibly long checklist of things you have to do (or things you must not do) and that list is mostly things that are not dictated by Scripture, then do I have good news for you! In Christ, the believer has liberty. In this lesson, we examine Freedom of the Believer. (1) Freedom of the Believer is not there to give you free reign to sin. (2) Freedom of the Believer exists to free you to honor God without having to worry about everyone else’s standards. And (3) be careful how you use this fr...

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 5: Church History in the 19th & 20th Centuries

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 5: Church History in the 19th & 20th Centuries

As the pandemic carried on into its second month, our church continued its 2020 quarantine. This episode brings our Sunday School lessons at the time up to nearly the present in our exploration of church history, as we take a look at developments in Christian history in the 19th & 20th Centuries.

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 4: Church History in the 17th & 18th Centuries

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 4: Church History in the 17th & 18th Centuries

This episode is the audio lifted from the Facebook Live broadcast of our Sunday School lesson at Living Hope Southern Baptist Church of Parsons, KS, for Easter 2020. It was April 12th, the 4th week of quarantine. The Sunday School lesson was recorded on Good Friday because I had to be on the way to the airport on Sunday morning, quite an ordeal amidst Covid Quarantine. Nevertheless, the show must go on. And our Sunday School lesson was the continuation of our church history series. In this episode, we take an extremely "broad strokes" look at church history in the 17th & 18...

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 3: The King James Version, a history.

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 3: The King James Version, a history.

The history of the English Bible goes all the way back to the mid-1300s when John Wycliffe decided that English speakers needed our own Bible. His version was available as of 1382. For the next 229 years, there were a variety of English translations that appeared, but none of them were as excellent as the Authorized Version - commonly known as the King James Version or the KJV - which appeared in 1611. The reason the KJV has persisted for 413 years and counting is because it was a magnificent translation. But the translators did not have access to thousands of manuscripts that...

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 2: What Is a Baptist?

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 2: What Is a Baptist?

This episode explores the distinctive beliefs and practices that make Baptists different from other Christians. Note: This episode was recorded 4 years ago. I refer to COVID-19 as "Coronavirus" because "COVID-19" wasn't the popular term for it yet. I refer to the pandemic as something that was just beginning. Some of my political, social, and religious opinions are subtly different now than they were 4 years ago. But I still stand by this teaching, which was Week 2 of out church in quarantine.

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 1: A Bit of Baptist History

Church-in-Quarantine, Episode 1: A Bit of Baptist History

In March 2020, COVID-19 snuck up on us and caused most of our institutions to close. We had to wear masks and only walk down the Walmart aisles in a single direction, and the TP aisle was empty. It was a weird time. Our church made the decision to go online for a few weeks, which ended up becoming several months. And even after coming back in person, we had to do quarantine again, and yet once more a few weeks later. When quarantine kicked in, I was in the middle of a church history series, so when going to Facebook...
