Hurricane Michael Disaster Relief

PB Disaster Relief Effort Information

As you know, the Florida panhandle was severely impacted by Hurricane Michael this week. This has left many people without homes, food, and water. Among those affected was the Saint Andrews Primitive Baptist Church, in Panama City. It is our privilege to try to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters, relief they can distribute among themselves and their neighbors, family, and friends.

We plan to make at least one trip there to deliver supplies early this next week, possibly Monday. Also, some of us plan to stay there to help with the physical needs, such as installing tarps and cutting trees.

Many have asked about ways to contribute. Brother Lance Hocutt has produced that means, using the account for the former Primitive Baptist Scholarship fund. Because of this, you can contribute online without delay, as with a check. Lance headed much of the efforts after Hurricane Katrina.

Use Paypal to donate to: PBC Scholarship Fund, Inc. ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

If you prefer to contribute directly to the members of Saint Andrews, they've requested you send that contribution through Palm Chapel Primitive Baptist Church in Crestview Florida. Crestview was not as heavily impacted and they still have functioning banks and stores. Presently, supplies have to be brought to Panama City from further distances because of storm damage. Keep that in mind, as cash in their hands might not help them acquire necessary food and supplies this soon after the storm.

If you would like to purchase supplies and live in North or Central Alabama (along the route), or have means to deliver the supplies or convoy down with us, I suggest bringing donated items to our respective churches on Sunday, and someone from the churches meet up with us.

Also, if you would like to volunteer to physically assist, I am sure that is presently still a need. I plan to spend the beginning to middle of next week down there as needed. You're welcome to accompany us. Please contact me (Ben Winslett) for more information, at 256-527-8522.

For questions about any of the above, feel free to call.

[Note: If you know of a congregation in the affected area that needs such assistance, please let us know and we will attempt to help them.]

Short list of supplies needed at this phase:

 

  • Bottled water
  • Nonperishable food items (especially if no preparation is required)
  • Batteries
  • Flashlights
  • Disposable plates and utensils
  • Other paper products
  • Hygienic items
  • Gasoline

An explanation of Article 10 of our Statement of Faith: We believe that God has ordained good works, that His children should walk in them, and that good works are only such as God commanded them in His word, and not such as without the warrant thereof are devised by men out of blind zeal or upon any pretense of good intention.

Discussed in this episode are:

  • Good works
  • Justification by works
  • The regulative principle
  • Hurricane Michael
  • Featured Resource: Basic Bible Doctrines (Available at sovgrace.net)
  • Scriptural quotations from Leviticus 10, 2 Samuel 6, Ephesians 2, James 1, and James 2.

 

 
Mercy Instead of Justice
Written by David Wise   
Monday, 08 October 2018 18:23

“For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” – Rom. 9:15-16

 

In the midst of this chapter declaring God’s sovereignty in election and salvation, we find this profound exaltation of the mercy and compassion of God. Sometimes we get an idea in our minds that we deserve a lot more than we truly do. The truth is that we don’t deserve anything other than the wrath of God, and anything less or better than that is in God’s holy hand to disperse or withhold, according to his own will. When we consider what we truly deserve, that should make us ever more grateful for what we have been freely given by the Lord.

Jesus Stood Still
Written by David Wise   
Monday, 03 September 2018 18:03

“And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he [blind Bartimaeus] cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called…” – Mark 10:48-49

 

As Jesus passed through Jericho, a blind beggar named Bartimaeus cried after the Lord to have mercy on him and heal him. Jesus did not answer him at first and those in Jesus’ crowd told Bartimaeus to hold his peace, to be quiet, to which he responded by crying even more. Jesus took note of the tenacity and persistence of Bartimaeus’ petition. Jesus “stood still” and heard the cries of this beggar. Even when our prayers might not seem to be “getting through” to the Lord, we can always know that Jesus “stands still” to take note of the cries of his children.

An exhortation to young Primitive Baptists
Written by Josh Winslett   
Friday, 17 August 2018 11:24

Though I still consider myself young, I am no longer considered to be a young adult in the modern sense of the term. I have passed into full adulthood with a wife, children, and some gray receding hair. With that said, I am still not very far removed from my adolescence and beginnings of adult life. Over the past couple of months, I have noticed a very strong body of young Primitive Baptist. For that I am thankful. But I do wish to engage this body of people with certain exhortations. Before reading, know that this is said in love and from experience.
