The first broadcast of Let the Bible Speak was on October 20, 1963 on KY3-TV in Springfield, MO. Then 27-year old Ronny Wade was the preacher and he would continue in this role for the better part of 45 years. This particular broadcast dates back to approximately 1965 and was on 16mm film. The Cook Brothers Gospel Quartet sang on the program in those dates and consisted of Clovis Cook (passed away in 2010), Travis Cook (passed away in 2011), Leo Cook (passed away in 1990’s), and Homer A. “Sonny” Gay, Jr. (passed away in 1976). Enjoy this rare look at the past and a sermon entitled “A Cheap Religion.”
In 1992, a young man and his family were watching Let the Bible Speak, then hosted by Bro. Irvin Barnes. Bro. Barnes was preaching on the scriptural pattern for the observance of the Lord’s Supper. What he had taken for granted for a lifetime was challenged by what he heard the bible saying about this ancient memorial. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, Bro. Jimmy Cating joins Bro. Kevin Presley to discuss the things that caused him to reconsider how the Lord’s Supper is to be observed.
Jesus said “Judge not lest ye be judged” but does this exclude the rebuke of sin and calling people to repentance? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we examine this oft-quoted and oft-misapplied passage.
Th church of Christ was established by Christ to bring glory to God. Two millennia later, it remains on earth. Why? Beyond the overarching purpose of glorifying Himself through Christ, His Son, what was God’s design for the church? The mission of the church is distinct and powerful but it has often misunderstood and the bride of Christ has been used for other purposes. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak. we look at Why The Church Exists.
The Golden Rule is one of the most well-known maxims in all of religion or even world philosophies. Most religions claim some form of this rule but Jesus is the only person who ever stated it exactly as He did. Some attempt to reduce Christianity to only keeping The Golden Rule. While there is much more to following Christ, it is a sweeping truth that will transform every relationship we have with others. But there are at least two other related philosophies by which people are living their lives and these never attain the sublime height of living by the Golden Rule that Jesus gave. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we consider “Three Great Rules of Life.”
