MY WEDNESDAY NIGHT CLASS ON GRIEF

by Dennis Gulledge

                If you have been following our Wednesday night class on Facebook you know we are engaged in a study of grief. As my guide I have been following the book, Walking With Those Who Weep, by Ron & Don Williams. Both are friends of mine from college days. They are twin brothers, and are […]

    SAMSON & FAITH’S HALL OF FAME

    by Dennis Gulledge

      Recently, we were studying the account of Samson in Judges 13-16. When we came to chapter 15 I said, “At this point in the book of Judges I can’t help but wonder what it was about Samson that permitted him to be mentioned as an example of faith in Hebrews 11:32.” I know that we […]

      COME, LET US REASON TOGETHER

      by Dennis Gulledge

        EDITOR’S NOTE: Recently, I was reminded of an excellent article by Eddie Boggess, “Is Conviction the Same As Hatred?” (Gospel Advocate, June 2016, pgs. 22-23). Brother Boggess noted, “For a society embracing political correctness on every issue, intolerance has become the unpardonable sin. To criticize the beliefs of others is to run the risk of […]

        “I WAS HUNGRY AND YOU GAVE ME FOOD”

        by Dennis Gulledge

                      In Matthew 16:16-18 Jesus promised to build his church. In verse 19 he equated the church with the kingdom. From that time onward Jesus began to reveal to his disciples the approaching realities of his suffering, death and resurrection, and at the same time answered Peter’s doubts and misconceptions relative to the same (Vss. […]

          NEW WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE CLASS “Walking With Those Who Weep,”

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        In the Foreword of his little book, Words of Comfort, Ross W. Dye said, “On June 13, 1961 my elder son, Stanley Ross Dye, suffered a fatal accident. One cannot experience these bitter disappointments without being changed by them. I have been made increasingly aware of a deficiency in the church’s ministry of comfort.” […]

            LANGUAGE OF ASHDOD

            by Dennis Gulledge

                          In the days when Judah returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity, Ezra and Nehemiah worked together to improve the conditions then prevailing. The problems they encountered were many, not the least of which was the fact that Jewish men had married women of Ashdod, Ammon and Moab (Neh. 13:23). A consequence of these […]

              RACISM AND THE RESTORATION MOVEMENT

              by Dennis Gulledge

                            Current events have no doubt prompted many gospel preachers to treat the subject of racism from the pulpit in the last few weeks. I did so this past Lord’s day in a sermon I called, “One Blood-All Nations,” from Acts 17:22-28. I have preached on the subject several times over the years and was […]

                WHAT ABOUT TAKING OATHS?

                by Dennis Gulledge

                              Recently it was my pleasure to participate in the summer series for the Acton church in Michie, TN. The theme was, “Difficult Sayings of Jesus.” My assignment was, “Do not take an oath at all” (Matt. 5:34). It was a joy to be with those brethren and to have a part in this series. […]

                  HOW JESUS TREATED LOST PEOPLE

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                    Luke 7 makes for a good study of how Jesus treated lost people. In vs. 34 the Lord sites some of the charges spoken against him. The basis for such criticism was his association with people who were “sinners,” being outside the inner sanctum of pharisaic fellowship. Jesus was neither a glutton nor a social […]

                    THREE WORDS THAT MEAN MORE TO US NOW

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                      Bill Brandstatter             During this COVID-19 crisis, there are three words that should mean more to us now than they ever did before. These three words should mean a lot to us spiritually as well. Perhaps our understanding during the crisis will help us to see the importance of them in our spiritual life. The […]
