And God Said Part 1

First session of a 2-part look at Genesis 1 bible study at Community Bible Church in Brentwood, TN

Terra Nova, Not the New Earth I Am Looking For

Recently, Fox aired its newest TV show titled “Terra Nova”. As a guy who seeks to stay tuned in with the “comings and goings” of dinosaurs, this seemed like something I should check out since the previews were full of these grand creatures. Digging bones out of the ground is really cool, but I also pay attention to the mass produced cultural impact dinosaurs make too.

A Return To Babel

After the water of the Genesis flood subsided, God told Noah to, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” Within a few hundred years, mankind was building a city and tower in defiance of God’s command, rather than trusting in His sovereign control over the planet. Today, “save the planet” movements such as the global warming thriller, “An Inconvenient Truth” or Earth Day celebrations, hearken back to the early, post-flood days of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel through their “self-preservation” philosophies.

Rooting Our Children in Genesis

As Christian parents, educators and mentors, we want our children to hear the gospel message, understand the meaning of the cross and be transformed by the truths in its proclamation, but as leaders of this upcoming generation, we have failed mightily to root this message in genuine history of the world as found in the early chapters of Genesis.

We have turned our noses up at the book of Genesis because...

End of Time?

Tomorrow (May 21) is supposed to be the day the world comes to an end; I am skeptical about its reality. However, one thing I am certain about is the fact that “one day” the end will come to us all. This fact is cannot be escaped and in many respects, this time should be longed for.

Recent earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan have stirred people’s thoughts about signs of the end, but I prefer to look at these events as...

Peace Found in Creation and the Creator

As I sit in a screened-in porch in a cabin just outside of Maryville, TN, I am captured by the simplicity of God’s creation; a babbling brook, chirping birds and gently swaying trees all existing in peaceful harmony. This picture is in stark contrast to the noise and chaos that populates a typical day back in the real world; cell phones ringing, deadlines to meet, social networking being maintained, children’s practices to attend, etc. Sometimes the noise and chaos from life comes from within my own head. Moments of peace and quiet can be just as elusive in my mind as anywhere. Couldn’t we all use a few more “screened-in porch” moments in our lives?

The Gospel Unifies the Church

My dad used to tell me, “Do as I say, don’t do as I do.” Now, my dad is not a man of low character and values, he was just pointing out the difficulty we all have living out our perceived values. As Christians, we all struggle with the fact that our actions and words don’t always line up. Churches have many struggles...

Why Should We Emphasize the Idea of “One Blood” in Our Society Today?

It is not uncommon to hear reports of prejudice against people of differing skin colors these days. Events like these, can serve as reminders of the division and separation still existing in the world today. This sin of oppression is clearly illustrated in current events and through historic reminders of our nation’s past. Even now, we are still a people divided by our skin color; but why...?
