On Sunday morning we examined Paul’s exhortation to Timothy in the last letter that Paul would write. The theme was “seeing clearly.” Last January I had LASIK surgery on my eyes to correct my vision. My vision when last checked was 20-15, better than 20-20. I remember the first time I was given corrective lenses back in my college days. When I put on the glasses I didn’t realize how poor my vision was without corrective lenses. With the glasses I could see the leaves on the trees, before they were just a blob, and I didn’t even know it. I’m afraid that a lot of us don’t realize how poorly we see. We need the corrective lens of God’s Word to see the future clearly. You can listen to this message by following this link or visit our sermons page.
We need to think biblically about money. As reipients of God’s grace we must be givers of grace. God did not create us to be reservoirs, but rivers. We saw the exhortation to Christian stewardship in 2 Corinthians 8. We are to be stewards of our talents, our time, our treasures and our testimony. We saw the example of the Macedonian Christians in the first few verses. We emphasized the example of Christ who was extremely rich, but for our sakes became exceedingly poor so that we might be made extremely rich.

We need to think biblically about money. There are competing theological opinions. Jesus spoke often about money matters, because money matters. On Sunday morning we looked at the most difficult to understand parable, the story of the unjust steward. Click here to listen to Sunday morning’s message or visit our sermons page.
The following is a recent email from Pastor Mike Yarborough, director of the South Region for the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship:
- Great pricing for the total conference
- Tremendous speaker line-up (see the attached conference brochure)
- Special sessions for high-school students
- Special “day of prayer” pricing for an extra day for you to get alone with the Lord
- Fellowship with men of like conviction and philosophy.
We need to think biblically about money. There are competing theological opinions. Are we to believe what is taught by those who teach “prosperity theology” or those who teach “poverty theology.” I believe the biblical teaching is somewhere between, something we will call “stewardship theology.” Click here to listen to Sunday morning’s message or visit our sermons page.
