Seriously, how in the world could a man actually think that he is a woman? I have been struggling with this for so long now that it has come to feel like there is really no connection between the 'trans' movement and my life, except...
How do we go about doing this? We let God speak for Himself! We throw the Word on the ground and let IT bear fruit! As I think about the struggle of those Dark Age Christians and how they lived and died to get the Word to places where people could hear it, I asked myself this question and I want you to think about it with me as we move on into the Spring and Summer:
“How can I smuggle the Word into my conversations with our community?”
Several months ago I began to upload my messages from recent sermon series. I have almost uploaded all of my messages from the book of Jude and am continuing to upload my messages from Ezra. I also plan to use this podcast as a tool to demonstrate different ways that I have found that help... Continue Reading →
In this week's podcast, Pastor Steve introduces us to another prophet - Zechariah. The Children of Israel have stopped their work on God's house and for 16 years have focused on building their own. This cannot be! So now, The Lord sends His personal Spokesmen to get His message across! When God wanted His people to follow His commands - He sent Haggai and Haggai told it like it is - in this message we will see that Zechariah is the prophet who tells it like he sees it and it is a brutally personal, confrontational, and yet completely Gospel cerntered message.

The short book of Haggai is full of the correction of the Lord for His people who have stopped doing what he has commanded and need to be told,... Continue Reading →
In this podcast, listen as Pastor Steve shows us how Jesus and judgment go hand in hand. There is so much of the Gospel in this truth: Jesus IS COMING to judge and convict! Also, how can the Lord come if He is still dead? The Living Lord IS coming because HE isn’t still dead! The Living Lord is coming and HE isn’t alone. The ungodly have no hope in their ungodliness. Just because they are ungodly doesn’t mean that God isn’t God! The Lord isn’t diminished or defeated simply because these people don’t accept Him or His Word.
What is the harm in letting them put bricks on top of each other and clear out rubble and assist us in getting the temple done quicker? As we listen, we will see that there is more here than meets the eye! Join us and learn the importance of discernment.
In this Podcast, join Pastor Steve as we see that Jude isn’t playing around in his description of these people. He has repeatedly, in the most offensive fashion, defined these people in the worst sense possible! Make no mistake about this, Jude condemns them!
In the following Article, you will find five simple questions that I ask to help my family work through a passage of Scripture. We use them during our times of family worship, while we are in driving in the car, and as we talk about a sermon or message that we have heard together. I have found that these questions serve as a springboard for deeper and more fruitful thinking on the passage at hand.
