OUR GOSPEL MEETING WITH DAVID LIPE (June 6-9)

by Dennis Gulledge

    I would like for you to know a little about brother David Lipe, who is scheduled to hold our gospel meeting this year. As you will see from the biographical information below brother Lipe has been quite accomplished at directing sound and effective lectureship programs over the years. My knowledge of him has largely been […]

    THE TRANSFIGURATION OF CHRIST

    by Dennis Gulledge

                  The transfiguration was an amazing event in the life of Jesus Christ, and a memorable occasion for three disciples. Jesus, at this time, is in the closing months of his life on earth prior to his crucifixion. The account of this remarkable event may be found in Matthew 17:1-9; Mark 9:2-9 and Luke 9:28-36.  […]

      “EASTER” AND THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST

      by Dennis Gulledge

                    Many people will awaken like the springtime all around us and make their annual appearance at an “Easter service” somewhere. Easter is not complete without a sunrise church service, so they will force themselves to rise with the Robins and be there somewhere. Many denominations (and some churches of Christ) will attempt to draw […]

        “HEAVEN WILL SURELY BE WORTH IT ALL”

        by Dennis Gulledge

          By Edd Sterchi          Many decades ago, on a Sunday morning, I was in a 15-passenger van with a member of the local congregation picking up kids to bring them to Bible study. I remember it as if it were yesterday. The van was packed to the gills with children, and my job was crowd […]

          FEW

          by Dennis Gulledge

                        Recently, on Facebook, someone posted a picture of a church attendance board and said, “Few will know what this is.” In that case I was among the few. The numbers must have reflected things of a few decades ago because the PM count was only a few less than the AM count. These days […]

            THE MOST DIFFICULT COMMAND

            by Dennis Gulledge

                          As I was preparing for my Wednesday night Bible class recently I came across an interesting statement from the late brother Franklin Camp. He was discussing Eve’s transgression in Genesis 3:6, and said, “The essence of her sin was self will and rejected the will of God (sic). That’s the reason for a long […]

              COUNTERING CHURCH CLIQUES

              by Dennis Gulledge

                            We all know about cliques both in and out of the church. Some of us are at least a little bit put off by them. We may feel that we are looked upon as an outsider who is unwelcome if indeed we are looked upon at all. As Justin Rogers noted in his book, […]

                SUPPLEMENT YOUR FAITH

                by Dennis Gulledge

                       “For this reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or […]

                  “FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON”

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                                Four years ago it was my privilege to teach through the book of Ecclesiastes in my Wednesday night class. Before going into that study I naively thought that the book was relatively simple. It didn’t take long for me to discover that it presents a mountain of interpretive challenges. Of particular interest here will […]

                    POST-PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

                    by Dennis Gulledge

                      Steve Higginbothom What words come to mind after watching the first presidential debate? Here are the words that come to my mind… Rancor. Disrespect. Dishonesty. Misrepresentations. Lies. Rudeness. Slow to listen; swift to speak. What’s even more interesting to me are the words that come to mind after listening to God’s people on social media […]
