The near 2,000-year history of the church is marked by a multitude of innovations to what was originally revealed by Christ and His apostles. How should we react to these changes? Are all changes wrong? Should Christians be content for their faith and practice to evolve with the passing of time and cultural transition? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we present part 2 of our series on “Innovations and the Divine Pattern”. We pose the question “What Is Wrong With Innovations?”
The church established by Jesus Christ upon the foundation of His apostles is complete and perfect in its design. It did not take long, however, for mankind to corrupt it with human ideas and arrangements. The 2,000-year history of the church has been one largely of change and departure from the divine pattern. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we begin a series of studies about Innovations and the Divine Pattern with an overview called “A History Of Innovation”. Like and share the video.
In this Let the Bible Speak Classics release, Bro. Ronny Wade begins a series of sermons about the church of the New Testament.

In this ‘LTBS Classics’ video, we go all the way back to the beginning of the Let the Bible Speak television work. On October 20, 1963, the churches of Christ who use one loaf and one cup in the Lord’s Supper, entered the field of television evangelism. Bro. Ronny Wade was the original and long-time host of the program originating in Springfield, MO. The singing was done by the Gospel Lamplighters, a group organized and managed by M. Lynwood Smith and also the Cook Brothers Quartet. The program was shot on 16mm film. Enjoy this rare look at the beginning of what was to become a fruitful ministry spanning more than 55 years.
Jesus is coming again but is He coming to rule on earth for 1,000 years? The doctrine of Dispensational Premillennialism is one of the most widely and zealously spread doctrines in religion today. It predicts that Christians will be raptured to heaven before a dark tribulation befalls the earth. After seven years, it is claimed that the Battle of Armageddon will be fought in the Middle East and the victorious Jesus will come to Jerusalem, set up His kingdom and rule over the earth for a millennium. We are thus living in the church age and supposedly waiting for the kingdom age. But does this popular doctrine square with Christ’s teaching about His own kingdom? Today’s sermon at Let The Bible Speak continues our series on the kingdom. We hope you’ll take half an hour to watch, then share it with others.
