I am a Christian who believes the Bible is the Word of God. The New Testament, specifically, is that part by which Christians are to live. Jesus of Nazareth gave validity to the Old Testament by quoting from it and from inferences to people and events. Therefore it is sacred as well. Jesus promised His Apostles that the Holy Spirit would guide them into “all truth,” John 16:7-15. That the Holy Spirit did is clear from their testimonies in confirmation of His teaching, in addition to that He revealed through them as events unfolded after His resurrection and ascension. I, therefore, assert that all other opinions, including mine, are not on par with the Scriptures. In the final analysis only the revealed Word of God should be the standard by which we determine right and wrong, good and evil, true doctrine, and who it is that may rightfully claim to be in fellowship with God in Christ. We have but to judge ourselves by its standards to know. “Not everyone who says unto me, ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven,” Matthew 7:21. May God grant us all an open mind, a tender heart, and an anxious spirit to learn that will, and to pass it along to others that they might be saved. Thank you for taking the time, which I know is precious to all of us, to read my commentary. (All Scripture quotations are in italics and are taken from the New King James version of the Bible unless otherwise stated). As for comments, I will only publish publicly those which I am certain are not spam or inflammatory.
In addition, I invite you to visit the church website where I preach. I post recordings of my sermons there each week along with the outline I use:
