Cogitations e121: about a priest with no integrity

11/14/2019
More
In the book of Judges we read of an unnamed priest who had no right to be a priest. I think about that priest often. He stands as an admonition and an example of how we are not supposed to be. Take a listen as I think out loud about this priest and what lessons you and I can learn form his account in the Bible.

Cogitations e119: about an unbeliever understanding the Bible

11/9/2019
More
There is a pernicious doctrine that is taught from time to time which asserts that no one can read the Bible and come to a knowledge of the truth and obey that truth unless one is guided by a Christian. Friends, this doctrine changes the nature of how God interacts with the world trough the Word. This adds another mediator between God and man. In this episode we scrutinize this doctrine and we show a Bible example of where "natural" men obeyed the gospel because of their reading the...

Cogitations e118: about absolution of sin

11/7/2019
More
Awhile back a listener asked me to do a Cogitations episode about John 20:19-23. I have heard some claim that the apostles received the Holy Spirit that day and not on the day of Pentecost. I have also heard this passage used to teach the denominational doctrine of absolution. Hopefully this short podcast will put to rest both of these issues. Let me know what you think.

10/29/2019

Cogitations e112: about 1st century Christianity in a 21st century world

10/25/2019
More
How do we practice first century Christianity in a twenty first century world? Christianity is timeless. The Bible is timeless. However, there are some issues that we deal with today that were not present in the first century. Does this mean that we are to divorce Christianity from current events and politics completely?

Cogitations e110: about Christians and LGBTQ+

10/23/2019
More
LGBTQ+ is such a hot topic right now. This deviant sexual lifestyle is being normalized so much so that when preached from the pulpits or written about in articles or discussed in posts on social media brethren will push back with "whatbaoutism." We talk about the issues of the LGBTQ+ community then others say, what about lying, or, what about heterosexuals and the sins they commit? If you will allow me to approbate the language of my brother, James, my brethren, these things ought not so to...

Cogitations e109: about christians and politics

10/22/2019
More
For some reason this topic gets batted back and forth. Should a Christian be concerned so much with this physical world that he involves himself with politics? For many, the answer is, no. This is beyond my comprehension. Hopefully from the reasons I list in this episode you will see that being involved in politics is, not only, allowed, but encouraged by God through the Word as well.

Cogitations e107: about mechanical instruments in praise to God

10/11/2019
More
This is a very controversial topic. It does not matter on which side of the issue you find yourself you will be in league with folk who clearly have a love for God's Word and folk who just like to bicker and argue. Regardless of the issue we need to trust that everyone who discuss the Bible is doing so in order to come to a better understanding of God's Word. This podcast attempts to answer 10 commonly given objections to the doctrine that using mechanical instruments of music in worship to...

Cogitations e106: about the simplicity of the gospel

10/10/2019

So often we want to complicate things. Usually is something is too simple we think it is too good to be true. I wonder if this is why there is so much confusion in modern christendom?

Cogitations e105: about enemies of the cross

10/9/2019
More
There was an exchange between myself and someone who wanted to be a teacher. In speaking about folk who do not follow the Bible I said, they may be enemies of the cross but they are not our enemies. This is straight from Scripture. This fellow had a problem with the statement. Before it was all over he had affirmed that the church of Christ is a denomination and that the church of the first century is non existent on earth today. Listen to the podcast and let me know what you think. I...

Sorry folk, local work got the best of me today and I am having to air a rerun. This episode was specifically requested and I got allot of good feedback from it. Let me know what you think. Do you shy away from discussion about the Holy Spirit? Is it just too confusing or difficult? Have you been told that the topic is too taboo or mystic to even understand? In this episode we discuss the gift of the Holy Spirit and what that means or meant to humanity in the first century. Let me know if I...
