Prov. 4:7

Wisdom is the Principal Thing

Prov. 4:7a

The principal thing…

*“principle” & “principal” – how we learned the difference.

Wisdom is the main thing. Homer at Bible Baptist in Florida (He’d sit on the front row… One time during offering… The world didn’t give it to me and it can’t take it away!) In our Bible believing churches, when the preacher is preaching and makes a good point, it’s not unusual for somebody to respond by saying, Amen! Homer would respond similarly to the preaching, but instead of saying, Amen, Homer would say, That’s the main thing! And it never seemed out of line when he said it either. And when I think about how the Bible speaks of wisdom as the principal thing, I think of it like Homer used to say… That’s the main thing! For wisdom is “the main thing”! Continue reading

LOVE NOT THE WORLD

I Jn 2:15-17

What do you love? I’m not talking about I love Cookie Dough Ice Cream

What do you love? Spouse Children God Country Job

What do you not Love? You can say if you don’t love something you hate it. And that would be correct and we can get into that another time

I am looking at the phrase Love not

It is in that form 3 times in your bible one of which is actually saying that you should love instead of not loving

1Co 16:22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maran-atha.

So there are 2 vrs which tell you not to love something

the first one here, again we are not going to deal with today

Pr 20:13 Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

Simply put God does not want us to be lazy bums sleeping our life away
Many times in the bible this is called being a sluggard Lazy

But the other of the 2 references is one that 85 to 90% of Christians don’t like Continue reading

The Leaders of This People Cause Them to Err…

Today I’m going to bring you a Bible study on the subject of Leader-ship.

And though this will have a particular emphasis on spiritual leader-ship, the basic premise will apply to all leadersPolitical, Parental, Scholastic, Business, etc.

Lee Roberson, a preacher of the not too distant past, used to say, “Everything rises or falls on leadership.”

And while arguments can be made that that is overstating the matter, the point is still well taken Leadership is important, and with the exceptions duly noted, it is still generally true, that, as goes the leader, so goes the follower. Continue reading

#83 God Or Goo? Part Three – On Purpose Or By Accident?

Posted in That's In The Bible - Podcast on July 11, 2019 by thatsinthebible

Geneticist Dr. Joel Brown (PhD Cornell University) brings us the capstone to his three part series looking at evolution and the Bible. Part One (Episode #80) “God or Goo? A Biblical and Scientific Investigation of Our Past” and Part Two (Episode 82) “God or Goo? Created or Evolved?”, lay the foundation to what is presented and discussed here in Part Three. Listen to all three revealing episodes for a good overview of the world view of evolution contrasted with the Bible world view.

God or Goo? A Biblical and Scientific Investigation of our Past – Part II

  1. OPEN IN PRAYER
  2. REVIEW
    1. In the Beginning
      1. God or Goo? – Part I
      2. Created or Evolved? – Part II
      3. On Purpose or By Accident? – Part III
    2. God or Goo?

i. Where did I come from? (3 questions)

1. This is a question of worldview.
ii. The Biblical Worldview – In the beginning God

  1. Core Belief #1: There is a God
  2. Core Belief #2: The Bible is God’s Word
  3. In the beginning God…READ THE FIRST THREE WORDS OF EACH VERSE IN GENESIS 1
  4. Summary:

a. About 6000 years ago God made everything in just six days…
5. I cannot prove to you that everything happened just as the Bible says. I cannot prove

God created everything in six days. I accept this by faith. iii. The Evolutionary Worldview – In the beginning Goo…

1. Belief #1: Naturalism

  1. No God allowed
  2. Explain the origin of this painting…no painter allowed.

2. Summary:

  1. About 14.5 billion years ago the universe exploded into existence from absolutely nothing…Cosmic Evolution
  2. About 3 billion years ago the earliest lifeforms spontaneously appeared on Earth… Organic Evolution
  3. About 3 million years ago the first humans arose through the process of evolution…Darwinian Evolution

III. INTRODUCTION

  1. When we ask, “Where did I come from?” we are really asking three questions?
    1. How did matter come into existence? You have to start with something, so where did that starting material come from? The atoms, the molecules, the stuff that everything is made of.
    2. How did non-living matter become alive? Now at some point that stuff had to become alive.
    3. How did complex lifeforms (like humans) arise? Being “alive” is simply not enough…bacteria arealive, but you’re a bit more complex than a bacterium so where did “complex” lifeforms come

      from.

  2. 3 Pillars of Evolutionary Worldview
    1. How did matter come into existence? Cosmic Evolution
    2. How did non-living matter become alive? Organic Evolution
    3. How did complex lifeforms (like humans) arise? Darwinian Evolution
  3. Our goal today…
    1. Not to prove that Creation is true
    2. Not to prove that Evolution is false
    3. To demonstrate that if a person accepts the Evolutionary Worldview they are doing so by faith. Not by reason, not by intellect, not by evidence…but by old-fashioned faith.

1. “Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs… in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism…Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.” Richard Lewontin, a Harvard evolutionary biologist, mathematician, and geneticist1
