Four Faithful Fundamentals of the Faith

Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. – Hebrews 2:1

Nothing is easier than drifting downstream.  No-one ever drifts upstream, but rather downstream, In other words, you drift away not towards your intended goals.  To drift downstream just sit back and relax, don’t put any effort forth and you will
start to drift.  You may not even realize that you have started to drift until it’s too late.  You are always either moving forward or backward; you are never standing still.

We all know Christians that have drifted away, they are all around us, people who used to attend church, used to read their Bible, used to do a lot of things, but have drifted away.  Are you starting to drift away?  If so, then grab the oars of the Fundamentals of the Faith to get back on track.

You need to learn the Fundamentals for any endeavor that you wish to be successful.  No matter what it is; In Football Continue reading Four Faithful Fundamentals of the Faith

The Four Incredible Hidden Treasures

The subject of hidden treasure is fascinating; it has prompted numerous books, movies, theories and actual treasure hunting expeditions.  Two of the most popular hidden treasures are:

  1. The Knights Templar Treasure
  2. Captain Kidd’s Buried Treasure

The Knights Templar’s have been surrounded by a shroud of mystery for years.  The were founded in 1118 during the Crusades state of Jerusalem by a French Knight by the name of Hugues De Payne.  De Payne started the order with eight fellow Knights.  They were quartered at the Temple Mount by King Baldwin II.  The original function of the Knights Templar was to protect pilgrims as they traveled the dangerous road from the Port of Jaffa to Jerusalem.  They were the most formidable fighting force in “Christendom”, and they also possessed immense wealth and political power.

A New Hope

The title of the first Star Wars movie released in 1977.  It opens up with the “good guys” being overtaken by the Evil Empire.  The Empire had just developed a weapon that no one could combat.  There was No Hope of surviving the destruction that this weapon  (Death Star) would bring.

But then you see, that there is Hope. There is a way to defeat their adversary.  There was a plan delivered and a way to obtain the victory.  They now had:

A New Hope!

This film as all others is based on one of only a handful full of different themes that are found in the Bible:

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9

In this podcast we are looking at one of these themes:

  • The Empire is represented by the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4).  The weapon is sin;  In the first four chapters of Romans, we see Man’s need for Salvation.  That man is a sinner and under the wrath of God.  We’ve Also seen that man can do nothing to battle this weapon.

Then God’s plan shows up!  In Romans 4 we see how that God will impute his righteousness onto us by Continue reading A New Hope

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. Irvington Bible Baptist Church
And they entered in, and found not the body of the
Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:
