The Futility of Fighting against God (Sermon #43)

The Plain Bible Teaching Podcast is returning later this month. In the meantime, here is a bonus episode with a sermon I recently preached while we were traveling in Arkansas. This sermon was preached on December 25, 2019 at the Spring Park church of Christ in Heber Springs, AR.

As was previously announced, the revamped podcast will now be centered around answering listener-submitted questions. So if you have a question you would like to hear addressed in a podcast episode, please fill out the form at the following link:

How to Discuss Contentious Topics (Season 13, Episode 12)

In this season, we’re discussing social issues – problems that are facing our society and what the Bible has to say about these issues.

Many of the topics we have discussed in this study are controversial and can elicit strong emotional responses from individuals. Because of this, we may be tempted to avoid any type of discussion on these issues, especially if we know there will be disagreement.

However, as we have discussed, there are Biblical principles that apply to these topics. Therefore, discussions on these sorts of issues can provide a way to direct others – especially those who are not Christians – to what the Bible teaches. So we should not avoid discussing these things altogether, but we do need to understand the proper way to discuss contentious topics.

Busyness (Season 13, Episode 11)

In this season, we’re discussing social issues – problems that are facing our society and what the Bible has to say about these issues.

Busyness is familiar to all of us. It is the condition in which we have a great deal to do. This could be due to actual responsibilities, perceived duties, self-imposed obligations, and time-wasting activities.

Those who argue in favor of busyness will often do so by contrasting it laziness or idleness, even though these are not exact opposites. Those who view busyness as a virtue typically believe they are simply making the most of their time rather than wasting it.

Social Media (Season 13, Episode 10)

In this season, we’re discussing social issues – problems that are facing our society and what the Bible has to say about these issues.

Social media refers to the online networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) that allow users to communicate with one another via text posts, photos, videos, and more. It is one of the more significant technological breakthroughs of our time.

Like any technological advancement, social media is not good or bad in itself – it depends on how it is used and what our attitude is toward it. Some will avoid social media altogether, possibly even discouraging or condemning others for using it. Some will immerse themselves in social media to the point of excess to the detriment of their personal relationships, work responsibilities, and overall health.

Socialism (Season 13, Episode 9)

In this season, we’re discussing social issues – problems that are facing our society and what the Bible has to say about these issues.

Socialism can take various forms, but the most common way it is used today is to describe a particular political ideology. In a nutshell, socialism is the belief that a central, national government ought to oversee and control all aspects of the economy, rather than leaving private businesses and individuals to conduct their business as they see fit. It is rooted in the notion that all property and wealth is to be shared and the national government is the entity which determines how they are to be shared. Of necessity, socialism demands a strong centralized government to be able to function in this way.

Those who argue in favor of socialism will often claim that it is the fairest way for a society to function economically and that it protects individuals from wealthy individuals or big corporations. Many will even attempt to use the Bible in order to defend this idea. One alleged example of socialism that is commonly given is that of the early Christians who sold their property to share with those who were in need (Acts 2:44-45; 4:32-35).
