Grayed-out Religion

16 Mar

Grayed-out Religion

We live in a world that insists that whatever you believe is truth is true for you. It’s called postmodernism. The idea that all truth is relative, and there is no absolute right or wrong. What’s right to you is right for you but not necessarily for me. Instead of black and white truths everything is seen in a grey area based on individual opinion. What does the Bible say about this?

NOTE: For the first half of the video the audio drops out when the slides show. This problem is solved about half way through.

In Favor of the Saints

12 Jan

Innate in the heart of fallen sinful human is a fear of God. We seem to have an innate understanding that we are sinful and that we will someday have to face judgment by a righteous God. We deal with that fear in many different ways. Some try to amass enough good works to make it through the judgment and convince God to let them into Heaven. Others form a god of their own imagination that will never judge. Some fill their lives with so many distractions that they have no time to think about the more sober things of life like judgment. Still others use evolution as a method of ridding themselves of God entirely; if there is no creator God then there’s no one to answer to. But I want to propose to you that the judgment is not something you need to be afraid of. In fact it’s something you should look forward to.

This Sermon was preached at the Joshua Crossroads Fellowship (The Cowboy Church).

Summer Camp: Chuck Norris and Grace

This is a morning devotional presented at Camp Arrowhead in 2011. A bunch of the kids were really into Chuck Norris that year so this was a means to channel that interest toward Jesus.

Reversing the Vaccination

24 Oct
April 8, 2008

Vaccination is putting just enough of a disease into one’s body (in a controlled environment) to help it to build up immunity and keep it from getting the real thing. Unfortunately, in the Midwest many people have just enough religion to keep them from getting the real thing—they’re vaccinated against saving faith! Are you Vaccinated against saving faith?

This is my farewell sermon to my Valentine church so at the beginning you will hear some comments along those lines . The actual sermon begins at 8 minutes.

Three Camps10/25/08

The topic of the Second Coming of Jesus had become a point of much controversy. Many people have made millions of dollars off of speculating about it. Many have been brought to the foot of the cross because of this topic while others have been sadly lead astray. Today we will look at three camps of thought regarding Jesus’ Second Coming.

This is an important sermon on how we should prepare for the second coming.

This sermon was recorded during a church camp out. You will notice that there is quite a bit of wind in the mic.

“I am going out to see my Father’s world!” Maltbie Babcock announced to his church staff as he laced up his running shoes. The staff of the First Presbyterian Church in Lockport, NY, were used to their pastor making this statement as he went on his daily early-morning run. He would run two miles to the brow of a hill overlooking Lake Ontario, taking in all the beauty of God’s creation. He would then run two more miles to a beautiful, deep ravine, which was home to forty different species of birds. Maltbie found a closeness to his Heavenly Father as he spent  time in His creation.

This insight into the personal life of Pastor Maltbie Davenport Babcock helps us understand the inspiration behind today’s hymn, “This Is My Father’s World”. (SDA Hymnal #92) Let’s take some time to explore our Father’s world in this fifth sermon in our series on Hymns for Him.
