How does man become morally and spiritually confused to the point that he abandons God altogether? Why does the world seem upside down where right is wrong and wrong is right? Romans chapter one gives us a detailed description of how men lose sight of their Creator and the attendant order and morality that accompanies authentic faith and the disastrous results. The apostle Paul shows us this in order to point us to the answer for what is wrong in our lives. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we see how we are living in the midst of a Romans 1 world.
Baptism is an essential step in becoming a disciple of Jesus. The bible connects several blessings with immersion that are only received when the penitent believer submits to this step of obedience. Most religious organizations practice baptism or something they call baptism but are all of these baptisms scriptural? Paul told the Ephesians there is one baptism that unites believers in Christ. What about your baptism? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we look at Ten Marks of Bible Baptism.
In this two-part study of sin, we have seen sin in its two most basic manifestations. 1) Prohibition: the commission of a thing prohibited, and 2) Omission (leaving undone the things commanded). In part two of our study we see three other synonyms for sin that we may not so easily recognize.
What is sin? The very word is quickly disappearing from our collective vocabulary. Those who still believe sin exists apply the term in different ways. The simple bible application is given in 1 John 3:4 where sin is called the transgression of the law. Sin is anything that violates the law of God. But what does that mean? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we learn about sin by looking at some of its “synonyms.”
How do you measure a church? Does a young, large crowd filling a beautiful sanctuary and complex indicate a strong church? Does the modernity and progressiveness of a congregation speak to its strength and vitality? Or is possible that God measures the church differently than men do? In his epistles, Paul uses five metaphors to describe the church and each one can be used as a measure of a healthy congregation. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at Paul’s Measure of a Strong Church.
