    Gashmu Saith It!

    Gashmu Saith It! The following is excerpted from the booklet The Technique Catastrophe by Evangelist Bob Creel (P.O. Box 4548, Sevierville, TN 37864, 865-712-4537 or 865-908-4244). It is subtitled An explanation of the multitudes of false professions in the Independent Baptist movement. Remember back in Nehemiah chapter six, when Sanballat and Tobiah, the enemies of the Jews, tried to get Nehemiah to meet with them so that they could stop the building of the walls in Jerusalem? When he refused, they then threatened to write to the king and tell him that Nehemiah was planning to make himself king and rebel against Artaxerxes. As an extra measure to make this…

    What do Baptists Believe?

    What do Baptists Believe? I want to share with you the account of a day that began as the worst day in my life and ended as the best day in my life. I will tell you first how I got to that day, and then I will tell you what happened on that day.

    Cussing, Swearing, & Profanity; A Matter of Opinion?

    Christian Cussing, Swearing, & Profanity; A Matter of Opinion? Timothy S. Morton – “Words Mean Things“ “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” [Matt. 12:37] Cussing, Swearing, & Profanity; A Matter of Opinion? Needless to say, the Bible says a lot about words. It was with words God spoke creation into existence [Gen. 1:3], with words God revealed His will to man [Ex. 20:1], and with words Christ revealed the truths of eternal life making salvation available to mankind [John 6:63, John 6:68]. Words are the primary means of communication between men and to men. So much so that the Lord Jesus…

    Christian Cussing

    Christian Cussing Author Unknown The Third Commandment. Exodus 20:7 “Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” What does it mean to take the Name of GOD in vain?

    The Comfort of the Scriptures

    The Comfort of the Scriptures “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.” – Romans 15:4 I shall speak to you for a little while this morning about the use of the Bible. It is represented in the above verse as a Book that has been Divinely produced, with a view to effecting certain Divine purposes. It is not the product of evolution, of the evolution of man’s religious consciousness, nor is it the result of man’s blind search after God; but It is written for a special purpose: “Whatsoever things were written aforetime were…
