RESPECTING GOD’S SPEECH AND SILENCE

by Noah Icenhour

    It might surprise you that there is no passage in the Bible that says “Speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent.” This is a slogan that has derived from a quote from Thomas Campbell.  There are however several passages that teach this in principle. Four of these passages explicitly […]

    by Dennis Gulledge

      In my Wednesday night class we are studying church history. Recently we covered the 16th century Anabaptist movement, primarily based in Germany and Switzerland.

      by Wayne Brewer

        One of the responsibilities that Jesus had while on this earth was to select his Apostles, that is select the men that would be responsible to preach the gospel to everyone (Mark 16:15) after Jesus had ascended back into heaven. They began that work on the day of Pentecost as they preached the gospel and […]

        by Noah Icenhour

          Isn’t it such a blessing to be a Christian? There are so many wonderful blessings to be part of Christ’s body. The reason being a member of the church is such a blessing is because of Jesus Christ and his impact on each on of us. In this brief article, I want to mention three […]

          30 YEARS AT MABELVALE

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        The summer of 1989 found me approaching nine years of preaching for the Baldwin church in Milledgeville, Georgia. It was an excellent first full time work in many ways, opening doors to different opportunities for service in the kingdom, but challenges exist everywhere. By that time discouragement had taken me down to the point […]

              THE HUMAN ELEMENT IN A CONGREGATION

              by Dennis Gulledge

                Two weeks ago I began preaching through the seven congregations of Asia Minor (Rev. 2-3). The churches at Smyrna and Philadelphia both share the distinction of receiving only praise from the omniscient Lord who addressed them. In my approach to the church at Smyrna one particular point of interest occurred to me. The fact that […]

                A FAMINE ON THE LAND

                by Wayne Brewer

                  The prophet Amos wrote to the people of his generation; “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord God, that I will send a famine on the land. Not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos 8:11). There were times in the history of […]

                  by Noah Icenhour

                    Wes McAdams When a crazed gunman shoots children at an elementary school, protestors are rioting in the streets, a hurricane destroys a city, or terrorists detonate bombs and shoot innocent people, people are quick to take to social media. The things they post range from sympathetic to absurdly inappropriate. If you will allow me, I would like […]

                    THREE REASONS TO REJOICE EVERYDAY

                    by Noah Icenhour

                      If you are a Christian, then you have at least three reasons you can always rejoice. Paul said in Philippians 4:4, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.”  Will there be times where our earthly circumstances are less than ideal? Yes. Will there be times where we feel down? Absolutely. Yet there […]
