What is good preaching? When it comes to style, there are many choices. Some ministers preach like an intellectual giving a dissertation. Speaking in a monotone, it would take a nearby explosion to get them to move from behind the pulpit. Others move around so much a pulpit seems unnecessary. Of those that move around, … Continue reading What is good preaching?
UFO or Demon
This week's Preacher's Point is difficult for me to write. The difficulty is that I like to stick to Biblical facts; this week is nearly all theory. The topic is something I have never preached or written about. I have only discussed this in a few private conversations. We had a guest speaker in college, … Continue reading UFO or Demon
Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
Easter time is upon us. The big day is less than two weeks away. Each year, as Easter approaches, I wonder about Christians and their attitude toward Christianity. I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
What Is Truth?
As a child, I remember adults discussing how "politicians lie all the time." As a younger adult, I remember people saying, "Politicians will say anything to get elected." I have always been a news junkie, and as I have grown into my senior years, it is apparent that those in my younger years were correct. … Continue reading What Is Truth?

As I was up before sunrise this morning, I gazed at the full moon in the western sky - the last full moon of winter. I could not help but think of the next full moon, the first of the spring season marking the coming of Easter. My mind went back two thousand years and … Continue reading The Next Full Moon

You may be thinking, "I thought salvation was through faith." It is. There are hundreds of verses that announce that … Continue reading Poor In Spirit
Christian, are you blessed? Now sit back and think of why you answered "yes." Did you have any material things on your list? You know, things like your house, car, or funds in the bank. The sermon on the mount starts with what is commonly called the beatitudes. It is a list of people who … Continue reading Blessed
Faith and Truth
Eternal salvation comes through faith, by grace. Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." The Bible explains that everyone is a sinner, and the washing away of sin can only happen by the … Continue reading Faith and Truth
The End Never Comes
Last week Preacher's Point ended with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. Most people believe Armageddon is the end of the world, but that is not the case. This universe we now live in will melt with fervent heat a little more than a thousand years after Armageddon (2 Peter 3:10-13). … Continue reading The End Never Comes
The Tribulation (Part II)

There are twenty-one judgments divided into three sections - seals, trumpets, and vials. This week we will start with the sixth trumpet. The sixth trumpet … Continue reading The Tribulation (Part II)
