TIPS ON ELDERS AND PREACHERS GETTING ALONG BETTER (2)

by Dennis Gulledge

    A few weeks ago I ran part one of this article designed to explore ways in which evangelists and elders, pastors and preachers might work more harmoniously together in God’s kingdom and in the local church. I continue that theme with this article in the second part. A better relationship is well within the reach […]

    DIVINE MERCY

    by Dennis Gulledge

      In Bible study and sermon preparation I sometimes encounter topics scarcely addressed by writers both in and out of the Lord’s church. This conclusion is based upon the sources for study that I have at my disposal, and in thirty-five years of preaching I’d like to think those sources fairly adequate. For example, in trying […]

      TIPS ON ELDERS AND PREACHERS GETTING ALONG BETTER (1)

      by Dennis Gulledge

        I guess I am in the situation which my friend Jim Faughn described, when he said, “As a preacher, I had been as close to being an elder as one could possibly be for all those years without actually being one” (Gospel Advocate, August 2008, p. 21). A preacher assumes a leadership role, but elders […]

        GOSPEL MEETING

        by Dennis Gulledge

          with Phil Sanders (June 3-6) Seven years ago we hosted Phil Sanders for a gospel meeting, and now the time has come to welcome him back to the Mabelvale congregation for another such effort. The theme this year is “Preaching Jesus.” I appreciate Phil for choosing this theme, since this is what gospel preaching is […]

          WHERE DO YOU STAND?

          by Dennis Gulledge

            Orthodoxy? The word orthodox means, “correct teaching.” Orthodox religion (i.e., Greek) originated centuries this side of the Lord’s church (Acts 2). Orthodoxy in the New Testament would be “sound doctrine” (1 Tim. 1:10; 2 Tim. 4:3; Tit. 1:9, 13; 2:1); “The form of sound words” (2 Tim. 1:13), or, “sound speech” (Tit. 2:8). Conservatism? This […]

            THE DEBATING SPIRIT

            by Dennis Gulledge

              In Profiles of Faith & Courage, I asked the twenty-four gospel preachers who make up the subject matter of this book, about their debating experience, and thoughts as to why debating is so rare these days. It is interesting that many of them admitted to never having conducted a debate, and were not of the […]

              “WHO’S GONNA FILL THEIR SHOES?”

              by Dennis Gulledge

                Presently I have a book being published by Jeff and Dale Jenkins of the Jenkins Institute. The book is called, Profiles of Faith & Courage: Interviews with Gospel Preachers. The idea for this work was actually begun twenty-five years ago, and is just now coming to fruition. What had begun with two gospel preachers (Granville […]

                SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

                by Dennis Gulledge

                  Super Bowl LII is set for Sunday, February 4th at 5:30 PM. On that Sunday sports fans of both the rabid and casual variety will pack in the snacks and gather around the television for the grand finale of professional football. Admittedly, the political controversies tainting this season may cut into those numbers to some […]

                  WE SHOULDN’T REMEMBER HIS BIRTH – REALLY?

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                    Have you heard it said, “The Bible doesn’t teach us to remember Jesus’ birth; it tells us to remember his death and resurrection”? It’s true that we don’t know Jesus’ actual birthday. It’s also true that we should remember the Lord’s death and resurrection. Furthermore, we shouldn’t proclaim anything that is false about Jesus’ birth, […]

                    AN INTERVIEW WITH HUGO McCORD

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                      (1911-2004) “Happy is the preacher who with good conscience at the end of a ministry anywhere can say he has held back nothing that was profitable, that he has declared the whole of God’s counsel, and so is free from the blood of all men (Acts 20:20-27).”             – The Living and Abiding Word: 1979 Freed-Hardeman […]
