  • Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God – 2004 – Part 1

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Original Author – Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) Enfield, Connecticut • July 8, 1741 2004 Version Author – Brent Riggs • www.seriousfaith.comTulsa, Oklahoma • July 8, 2004 You can download the entire message here: http://www.seriousfaith.com/Sinners.pdf 2004 Preface I love to rewrite the Puritan and Reformation prayers into modern English, utilizing my own particular style that God has blessed me with. I believe God has impressed me to write a modern version of one of the greatest sermons of all time – “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”. Make no mistake – the thoughts and the outline of this message are originally Jonathan Edward’s (from God first of course). As a teacher, I would not […]

    Question:Why is the Bible the “Truth”? Every other religion claims their book is true? How you can be sure the Bible is really the Truth? Answer:This is another one of those questions that has been answered countless times from countless angles. So let me just give you a small taste of one angle for you to consider: uniqueness.The Bible was written by over 40 different men, inspired by God, from all walks of life, from different areas of the known world, over a span of 1500+ years… and yet it presents a single, harmonious, life-changing message.In fact, the message of the Bible is in such great harmony, that men have tried ferociously for 2000 years to point out it’s “errors” and the best that can […]

    Question:Brent, One of the requirements of a church Elder is he has to be married to one woman. Does this mean people who have been divorced and remarried, that have become mature christians in their walk with Christ are not qualified to be elders? or, does it mean we have to be men of integrity faithful to one wife, with no wiggle room for immorale behavior? I personally have been married to my one and only wife for 36 years, but we have elders in the church that have been divorced and remarried. Answer:The qualifications in question (and found in other verses) is:1 Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; […]

  • Forgive My Sins

    A honest prayer for forgiveness Merciful God, Forgive me for all my sins today, this week and every day. Forgive me of sins that I know about, and sins that I have forgotten or become desensitized to. Forgive me for sins that were a result of what I did; and forgive me for sins that were a result of what I should have done, but didn’t. Forgive me for moodiness, being easily annoyed and often angered; forgive me for my loose tongue and worldly behavior. Forgive me for my hard heart, lack of faith, unbelief and pride; forgive me for even thinking that I am not guilty of those things. Forgive me for not being bold in proclaiming the Gospel to lost souls; forgive me […]

  • Gospel For Profit

    When people teach publicly, it is right to call them out publicly and comment publicly, whether in support or rebuke. Recently, I stomached a few minutes of some of the most sickening “Gospel for Money” I’ve ever heard. I’m not sure who needs rebuked more: the guy teaching it, the people broadcasting it or the people greedily soaking it up. Steve Munsey is false teacher selling the Gospel for money (and a HORRIBLE Bible teacher, if it’s even possible to attach his name to those words). I’ve been watching some of his “teaching” on the mostly embarrassing “GodTV”… I’m jotting down his actual points as I listen: God instituted Pentecost for people who need financial breakthrough (what an insult to the true reason for Pentecost). […]

  • Ways to Spend Time With Your Family, Even When Time is Short (Part 1)

    [From Brent: welcome our guest blogger today, Philip Reed. I look forward to the rest of his series on spending time with your family. Be sure to visit his links.] –Philip J Reed, on behalf of Daybreak We know what it’s like to not have enough time in the day.  Many of us work long hours to keep our families comfortable and secure, and that may not leave us with as much room for “quality time” as we would like.  Every parent knows how rewarding and important it is to spend time together as a family, and yet we are often overcome with feelings of guilt because sometimes that time just doesn’t seem to exist. For that reason, we have decided to put together this […]

  • Fear God: the Conclusion of the Whole Matter – Part 1

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. King Solomon had spent his whole life trying to find happiness and meaning. God had allowed him unlimited resources and opportunity to find a reason for living any way he could. He pursued every possibility available to man: work, wealth, pleasure, fame, friends, love and power. In the end Solomon concluded that life was futile and useless apart from God.Now all has been heard and here’s the answer […]
