Intelligent Design or Random Chance
Written by David Wise

“And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.” – Exodus 32:24

 

During Moses' time on Mount Sinai receiving the law of God, the Israelites had enticed Aaron to make them a new god, to which he obliged (Exod. 32:1-6). After Moses returns down from the mount, he questions Aaron as to how this graven image came about, and he tries to convince Moses that he cast a bunch of gold in the fire and randomly out came this calf. Moses certainly knew better than that because that molten calf bore the distinguishing marks of intelligent design. When we consider the amazing craftsmanship and intracity of design of God’s creation, it’s just as ludicrous to believe that all that we see around us, especially our human bodies, were just formed and created by random chance, as it's foolish to think that a molten calf just randomly come out of the fire. This world bears the marks of intelligent design and manifests the glory of its Creator.

Philip, The Pattern for Evangelism
Written by David Wise   
Thursday, 22 March 2018 07:19

Philip is the only man in scripture who is specifically denoted by the Holy Spirit as an evangelist – “Philip the evangelist” (Acts 21:8). Paul tells the ordained minister Timothy to “do the work of an evangelist” (2 Tim. 4:5), and he also denotes “evangelists” as one of the four ministerial offices in the New Testament church (Eph. 4:11). Paul certainly did the work of an evangelist, but he held a different office of an apostle, so he never referred to himself by that title. Therefore, we should examine Philip’s life to see the qualifying marks of “an evangelist” and how Philip conducted himself that led the Holy Spirit to single him out solely for this title in scripture. Philip’s travels in Samaria, to the eunuch, and then from city to city have received much attention, but we also see from his later life that his evangelism was also concentrated locally as well, not just traveling from place to place perpetually.

Two Livestreaming Methods
Written by Ben Winslett   
Monday, 19 March 2018 08:13

Our people love to read articles, receive periodicals, and listen to sermons while they drive or work. Because of the prevalence and capability of smartphones, one of the most recent ways of distributing the message has been through video on the internet. In fact, anyone with a smartphone and a facebook page can livestream their sermons at no additional cost! At Flint River, we began doing this just over a year ago and without a doubt, it has been worthwhile. Our folks can watch when they're out sick. It has helped us have a presence in the community. Also, PB from around the country (and beyond) can watch a sermon during their week.

Over the past year, we have used a couple of different methods to accomplish this. Since many of our brethren have been curious about trying this out in their assemblies, I felt compelled to produce an off-the-cuff tutorial walking you through each method we utilized. In it, we first look at livestreaming via a smartphone and then consider livestreaming by way of a PTZ camera and PC.

Beauty for Ashes
Written by David Wise   
Monday, 05 March 2018 14:09

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me… To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3)

 

God is in the business of fixing and overruling our sinful mistakes. This has been true since man’s fall in Adam created a ruinous heap of ashes, burnt and severed fellowship with God. However, God has promised to give us “beauty for [those] ashes”, to replace the ashy remnants of loss and ruin with a beautiful blessing of God. We will see the full beauty of God’s overruling blessing at Christ’s second coming, but God also blesses us here in time with blessings and beauty in spite of the sinful lives we lead.
