[King Ahaz] shut up the doors of the house of the Lord.  2 Chronicles 28:24 ESV

Jesus Christ said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.” John 10:9 ESV.   So, what will you do? Will you open the door?  Will you open the door and enter in?  Or, will you refuse and shut the door?

Open the door and enter in today!

Sermon Audio – Eternal Life and The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Microphone-blue

“This is he who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not by the water only but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three agree. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son. And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.” 1 John 5:6-16 ESV

Sermon Audio – Paul vs Paul

Microphone-blue

“Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.” Philippians 1:15-18 NKJV

 

“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:6-8 NKJV

 


This sermon was originally recorded April 6, 2014 at Brandywine Bible Chapel, Wilmington, DE.

WWW Wednesday: Air Bag

Air Bag Deployment

This week I have the privilege of serving as a counselor at a Bible Camp… so I am not able to write my usual Why We Web Wednesday article. Instead I posted the a video of a counselor intentionally deploying an air bag in a field… upon detonation the air bag soars to a height of about 30 feet.

Detonating the air bag was meant to demonstrate the brevity and fragility of life. One moment everything seems fine as we are driving along… the next moment an accident can change everything. Are you ready for eternity?

Check it out here: Air Bag

Penn — Of Penn & Teller Fame — Receives a Bible and Shares His Challenging Thoughts


 

 

In this video Penn, of Penn & Teller fame, retells the story of someone giving him a Bible. Penn also shares his thoughts about the experience. Very, very interesting.

Penn is clear that he is an atheist, however he is very complimentary of the gift and the one who gave it to him. He concludes by challenging all Bible believing Christians to be intellectually honest— if we really believe there is a hell and those who die in their sins will suffer for eternity then it is pure hatred NOT to share the gospel message with all urgency.
