Meet the conservative Baptists who don't like Billy Graham.On Sunday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram published a four-part series on more than 400 allegations of sexual misconduct affiliated with the independent fundamental Baptist movement. The scope of their reporting spanned nearly 1,000 churches and organizations across 40 states and Canada. The report noted: One hundred and sixty-eight church leaders were accused or convicted of committing sexual crimes against children, the investigation found. At least 45 of the alleged abusers continued in ministry after accusations came to the attention of church authorities or law enforcement.But what is the independent fundamental Baptist movement?Historically it has meant a firm belief in the “fundamental doctrines, that is to say, the essential doctrines of the Christian faith” and “an insistence that you should only extend Christian fellowship to people who profess to believe the gospel.” said Kevin Bauder, a research professor of systematic theology at Central Baptist Theological Seminary and the author of a two-part volume on Baptist fundamentalism.But that’s not necessarily what people hear, Bauder acknowledges.“The term ‘fundamentalist’ has sort of been co-opted by Martin Marty’s Fundamentalism project, where he made it a sociological designation for any extreme group,” said Bauder. “None of us are really happy with that label these days, because of the connotations it carries now.”(Perhaps one way to see it could be as the inverse of historian George Marsden’s remark: “An evangelical is someone who likes Billy Graham.”)Bauder joined digital media producer Morgan Lee and editor in chief Mark Galli to discuss the history of fundamentalism, why ...Continue reading...
Temple Baptist Church - 12-2-2018John 1:14Introduction:A. Christmas is almost upon us once again and our hearts turn back to Bethlehem and the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.B. I want to look at these verses considering His First Advent. These verses are so profound as they give us valuable insight into who Christ was, what He became, and why He came.C. In these verses, we see:1. The Eternality of Christ – Verse 1 — “In the beginning was the Word.” 1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (The Gospel of John and the Book of 1 John begin with the same truth concerning Christ's eternality. The great “I AM THAT I AM,” the self-existing One, the Everlasting Father of Isaiah 9, the Eternal God. A truth to be believed though a truth that cannot be comprehended. He was, He is, He always will be!)2. The Union of Christ – Verse 1 – “and the Word was with God.” 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (John 10 says, “I and the Father are one!” God is one God, manifesting Himself in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. All three are co-equal in all power and attributes. Perfectly one in person, one in purpose, and one agreement.)3. The Deity of Christ – Verse 1 – “and the Word was God.” Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; (The great Jehovah God of the Old Testament; LORD God. Essential to our ability to glorify God is the knowledge of God's person. There are so many names given to God in the Old Testament that give insight concerning His person, position, and power. El Shaddai-Almighty God, El Elyon-the Most-High God, El Olam-The Everlasting God, Yahweh-the Existing God, Adonai-Master. 4. The Creation of Christ – Verse 3 – “All things were made by Him.” Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: (Everything that exists came by Christ, through Christ, and belongs to Christ. God said it and it was done! The universe, this world, and everything in them belongs to Him.)5. The Life of Christ – Verse 4 – “In Him was life.” John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (Man cannot give life. Only Life can beget life and that Life comes from God. Plant life, animal life, fowl life, and the life of man came from God. THE life, not a life.)6. The Illumination of Christ – Verse 4 – “and the life was the light of men … which lighteth every man.” John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. (With man's life comes the “light” of the knowledge of God. Every man is born God conscious, not atheistic. Atheism is learned from other atheists. Theism is inherent in man. God breathed into Adam's nostrils the “breath of life.” God's life, eternal life.)7. The Will of Christ – Verse 7 – “that all men through Him might believe.” 1 Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (God is not willing that any perish. God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. To die without Christ is to die out of the will of God.)8. The Rejection of Christ – Verse 10-11 – “the world knew Him not … His own received Him not.” John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. (The world wants no God. The world wants to be their own personal “god.” No God, no accountability; no God, no purpose in life; no God, no life after death. BUT, we are accountable, we do have purpose, and there is life after death. “The fool hath said in his heart, there is not God.”)9. The Incarnation of Christ – Verse 14 – “And the Word was made flesh.” 1 John 1:2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, andbear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) (The “seed of the woman” was born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” That is the Reason for the Season. “For God so loved the world!”)10. The Purpose of Christ – Verse 12 – “But as many as received Him.” 1 John 3:23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. (Receiving the promise of God: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”)Conclusion: The greatest Gift ever given was the Gift of God's Son. Receive Him and have eternal life in heaven; reject Him and have eternal life in hell.
Longevity builds trust, which gives people a better perspective on what does and doesn't really matter.Pastors seem to be staying in their churches longer now than they did in previous generations.That’s on purpose.I know, because as of this month I’ve been ministering at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship for 26 years. When our family arrived here, our prayer was that the Lord would let us stay and plant roots.Certainly there are challenges to staying so long in the same place. Keeping fresh, not settling in too comfortably, and not repeating the same ideas over and over are constant battles to fight against. (We’ll address those in my next article, The 5 Biggest Dangers Of Staying In A Long-Term Pastorate – And How To Avoid Them).But if you can avoid those pitfalls, here are 8 advantages to investing a big chunk of our lives in one church body.1. There are some lessons it takes a lifetime to learn – and teachRecently I heard an art history expert say that the reason the great painters of history are called the “old masters” isn’t because they painted a long time ago, but because it takes decades to become great.It’s the same in ministry.When you move every few years, you never get past the preliminary stages of relationships and ministry.It takes years, even decades to get into the truly deeper aspects of any discipline, including pastoral ministry.2. You get to see generational resultsSpiritual growth is long term. Not only is it about an eternity in heaven, it’s a about how we spend our lifetime here on earth – and how we affect the generations that come after us.Spending decades of thriving ministry in the same place allows you to have that kind of long-term impact. Today, there are adults with kids in our church who were kids themselves when we started ...Continue reading...
Temple Baptist Church - 11-21-20181 Chronicles 16:1-2; 7-36Introduction: A. It seems almost impossible that it is Thanksgiving week again! I love the time from Thanksgiving until Christmas. It truly is “the most wonderful time of the year!” B. Though we are commanded to live in a state of thanksgiving. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) I believe that a special day of Thanksgiving is in order. 1. It will not be long until the heathen of our land tries to take away this day as they do others. It is no longer “Merry Christmas” but “Happy Holidays.”a) They have taken Christ out of Easter. Now it is all about the Easter Bunny, even in churches.b) They have taken Christ out of Thanksgiving. Now, it is all about Turkey Day and family gatherings.c) They have taken Christ out of Christmas. Now, it is all about Santa Clause and gifts.d) It is interesting that they have not taken witchcraft and devils out of Halloween.2. I rejoice in the fact that we still have a national day of Thanksgiving and want to make the most of it again this year.C. Verses 1-2. In our text, the Ark has come home to its resting place and all Israel began to sacrifice to the Lord. This was a very special day in Israel's history. David, the sweet psalmist of Israel wrote a Psalm of Thanksgiving (vs. 7) and gave it into the hands of Asaph.D. David appointed men, in verse 4, to record, thank, and worship the Lord. I want to look at these three aspects of thanksgiving for a few minutes this morning.1. David Appointed Men To Record – Verse 4 - to remember why we give thanks.a. He has saved us with an eternal salvation – vs. 14b. He has created this wonderful world in which we live – vs. 26c. He has given us His Word – vs. 15-16d. He has given us a victorious life and meets our needs – vs. 18e. He sustains it with His might power – vs. 302. David Appointed Men To Thank – Verse 4 - to acknowledge who we are to give thanks.a. He is a wonderful Lord – vs. 14 “our God” (He loves us despite)b. He is a merciful Lord – vs. 34 “He is good” (He is better than we deserve)c. He is a forgiving Lord – vs. 34 “mercy endureth for ever” (He restores)3. David Appointed Men To Worship – Verse 4 - to show the people how to give thanks.a. By Thanking Him – vs. 8 “Give thanks unto the Lord”b. By Fellowshipping with Him – vs. 8 “call upon his name”c. By Testifying to others for Him – vs.9 “talk ye of all his wondrous works”d. By Worshiping Him – vs. 9 “Sing unto him” (Not about Him)e. By Glorying in Him – vs. 11 “Seek the Lord and his strength”f. By Pleasing Him – vs. 11 “seek his face continually”g. By Reflecting upon Him – vs. 12 “Remember”
