“And God Said” Week 4, Part 1: Dinosaurs and the Bible

Tommy unfolds the mystery of dinosaurs from the Bible.  All too often, Christians fail to recognize the naturalistic philosophies that get tangled up with their beliefs and understanding of the history of the world.  Dinosaurs are not proof of millions of years or evolution, they demonstrate the grandeur of God's creative power.

“And God Said” Week 2 Part 1: Genesis Insights

This is from Week 2 of a Bible study Tommy was leading at Community Bible Church in Brentwood, TN.  Tommy looks at the text of Genesis 1 and considers some of the key points of this very important text. 

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

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...?
