LIGHT OF THE WORLD

by Noah Icenhour

    When Jesus came to this earth, he certainly had his death in mind for his mission. But his life is much more than simply his death. I would not dare attempt to take away from the meaning of his death, but Scripture devotes the majority of the Gospels are devoted to his life. He said […]

    Blank Keys

    by Noah Icenhour

      S Noah Icenhour There was a man in a lying unconscious in an old small shed. He came to himself and realized where he was, but he had no idea how he got there with a weird feeling he has been there before. Immediately he saw a door and tried to open it. But there […]

      by Noah Icenhour

        Part 2 This may seem like a odd topic to you, but it is an area that much has been written about. We started this series last week and will continue with it this week as well. What are the qualities you would expect to find in a book that claims to be from God? […]

        SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE

        by Noah Icenhour

          Part 1 One of the many evidences for the inspiration of the Bible is scientific statements of the Bible.

We received the Bible when men who were “moved” by the Holy Spirit wrote each individual book […]

          IS HAND-CLAPPING DURING SINGING ACCEPTABLE WORSHIP?

          by Noah Icenhour

            The practice apparently has its origin in the youth-devotional phenomenon of a few years back, but now is gaining some mainline defense. It is argued that clapping as a rhythmic form of accompaniment to singing in Christian worship is not an “addition” to the singing (as is a mechanical instrument); it merely is an aid — comparable […]

            RESOURCES TO HELP OUR VERTICAL COMMUNICATION

            by Noah Icenhour

              A couple Sunday nights ago we talked about “Vertical Communication: God and Us.” We discussed the importance of prayer and Bible meditation. We see this emphasis all throughout the word of God. In the very beginning of the Bible, we see the power of the Word of God as He speaks all things into creation. The […]

              WHICH WAY WILL YOU CHOOSE?

              by Noah Icenhour

                Psalm 1 In Psalm 1, the reader is presented with two ways of life. The ESV translators included an added title accurately describing this section as “The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked.” We have the freedom to choose which path we will travel in this life. The Psalmist encourages the reader to travel […]

                    LOT’S WIFE

                    by Noah Icenhour

                      Let me tell you something very obvious: we all have a past behind us. Each one of us has a history and a story about how we got where we are today. This story is filled with experiences that are memorable, comforting and joyful. This story is also chained to experiences that are painful, devastating […]
