God - The Liberal Giver
Written by David Wise

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” – James 1:4

 

The term “liberal” should not always be rendered as a bad or negative word.  On the contrary, the term is often used in a very positive light in scripture as evidenced by the term being associated with the generous giving nature of God. The definition of “liberal” at the time the KJV was translated (when the translators chose “liberally” to describe the nature of God’s giving) was “free in giving, generous, or open-hearted” (Shorter Oxford English Dictionary).  To commend the translators, using that definition, I cannot think of a more precise and accurate term to describe to free, generous, and open-hearted giving of blessings that God grants upon His children, especially when we ask of Him in prayer.

What do Primitive Baptists believe about tithing?
Written by Josh Winslett   
Thursday, 24 August 2017 07:20

Primitive Baptists have by majority believed that tithing was exclusively given to the children of Israel through the Mosaic law (Leviticus 27:30-32) and not binding on New Testament (NT) believers. Hebrews were commanded to give a tithe for the purpose of supporting the Levitical priesthood. Their tithe was higher than ten percent because it comprised of more than just monetary giving. With this tithe they were supporting the Levites with food, wine, animals, and other items. This command (as well as animal sacrifices, dietary laws, and such like) are not binding on NT Christians. To place this command on NT believers would be to place statute on them that the Bible does not prescribe.

How do ministers know where to serve? Balancing desires, burdens, open doors, and needs.
Written by Josh Winslett   
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 11:28

The gospel ministry is different than any other vocation or activity. You see, God alone calls men to preach his gospel and God alone directs their field of labor. Ministers are not, as it were, “mamma called and daddy sent.” Nor is gospel ministry a field of labor where we decide the direction that we would wish to take. This makes the ministry somewhat more difficult because it takes more discerning than the way many laity make decisions. To quote Elder Wilson Thompson, “God fixes the field of labor for each of His called ministers, and in that place alone will they be profitable.” This is a truth that all ministers would affirm, but how do we determine the correct field?

The level of anger and hatred in our country has been extremely elevated for several years. While we've recently seen some horrendous public displays of evil and hatred, the truth of the matter is, violence has taken to the street many times in the last decade. Why?
