BHBC COLLEGE BIBLE FELLOWSHIP – Sundays @ 6pm

FYI – I’ve now been teaching our BHBC college students for a little over a month.  We’ve had wonderful attendance and participation.  (Every single one of them brings their Bibles every time!)

In addition to unpacking a number of biblical passages together, this past Sunday we answered the question, “What makes the Bible unique among all ancient and modern literature?”  As believers, we already know what makes it unique – it’s the Word of God.  But, what if the question was asked by a skeptic who has no regard for the Bible whatsoever?  (In other words, the answer, “It’s the Word of God,” won’t work.) This is how we approached the question.  And the answer, we all discovered, is inspiring!

Please, if you know a college student looking for a place to learn God’s Word, and get to know some wonderful, loving peers, send them our way.  Sunday evenings @ 6pm, in Annex 3 (the house on 54th across the street from the church.)

 

THE MORMONS: A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE

They’re some of the nicest people on the planet and, often, refer to themselves as Christians.  So, they must believe what we believe, right?  Our Youth Pastor, Don Baldwin, has asked me to, once again, join the youth tomorrow evening to offer a Christian response to our Mormon friends & neighbors.  This will be a summary of the class I taught to our entire church on a Sunday night back in May.  Know anyone who may find this topic of interest?  Send them our way tomorrow evening (10/29), 7:30pm, BHBC Youth Room.

The best modern book on this topic is written by former BYU professor, former Mormon, Lynn Wilder, entitled, Unveiling Grace.  I have been in contact with Lynn, enjoying an exchange of emails, and am in the process of scheduling her to visit us in the future.

 

ATTN: PARENTS – THIS WILL MAKE YOU TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT WHAT YOUR KIDS ARE WATCHING

You know it’s bad when the secular press writes about how immoral prime-time tv has become.

From the editorial: “So you have had at least two generations of kids who have grown up with declining standards of what’s appropriate. And they are now raising kids with almost no standards at all when it comes to media consumption.”

Personally, the following passage comes to mind: “After that,…another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done…” (Judges 2:10)

QUOTE(s) OF THE WEEK

“The tooth of time gnaws all books but the Bible… Nineteen centuries of experience have tested it. It has passed through critical fires no other volume has suffered, and its spiritual truths have endured the flames and come out without so much as the smell of burning.” – W.E. Sangster (20th century British pastor; served in WWI)

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.” – G.K. Chesterton

“Sometimes when we get overwhelmed we forget how big God is.” – A.W. Tozer

“Do all religions lead to God? Actually *no* religion leads us to God — only *God* can lead us to God, and that is what is [offered to us] in Jesus.” – Andy Bannister

“As a literary historian, I am perfectly convinced that whatever else the Gospels are they are not legends. I have read a great deal of legend and I am quite clear that they are not the same sort of thing. They are not artistic enough to be legends. From an imaginative point of view they are clumsy, they don’t work up to things properly. Most of the life of Jesus is totally unknown to us, as is the life of anyone else who lived at that time, and no people building up a legend would allow that to be so.” – C.S. Lewis
