Every Wise Woman Buildeth Her House

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:3-4

Here, and in many other passages, the scriptures reveal the Lord's priority for the home in His kingdom, and the importance of a woman's role in the home. A woman who aspires to follow God's design for her role as a "keeper at home" finds herself on an enriching, yet challenging pilgrimage. Now more than ever, young women need the older women to come alongside, disciple and encourage, in the spirit of Titus 2. Thankfully, the Lord has blessed us with many such "Mothers in Israel" who ease our journeys and faithfully point us to the basis of their wisdom, the only infallible rule of human conduct: the Divinely inspired word of God. And there we must turn, for in the absence of the anchor of Biblical convictions, we will be carried about by the winds of culture.

Lukewarm Christians
Written by Josh Winslett   
Friday, 14 February 2014 18:43

The word lukewarm, by itself, means to be; not ardent; not zealous; cool; indifferent. That definition is where I start my understanding about lukewarmness. The word “lukewarm” appears only once in scripture. It appears in a letter that Jesus was audibly giving to the apostle John to deliver unto the angel of church of the Laodiceans.

Revelation 3:14-19
, "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."

Render Unto Caesar - Tax Time Again
Written by Ben Winslett

A couple of years ago, my wife and I decided to refinance our home. We are budget minded people, have no credit cards and avoid debt if at all possible. Needless to say, when the rates dropped down into the low 3% range a refi was too good to pass up.

 

Once we began the process, we were alarmed to find out a refinance was not possible because I had not been receiving a W2 for church "income" and therefore could not claim it on the application. Even though I had other forms of income (Land surveying, teaching trumpet lessons), the amount given to me by the church I serve was a large enough portion of our family budget that without it being shown on the application I certainly did not qualify for the loan.

How Should Preachers Be Educated?
Written by Ben Cordes   
Wednesday, 12 February 2014 12:50

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 2:2

 

Education is greatly emphasized in our world, today, as it should be.  After all, who wants an uneducated world?  However, what we are teaching/learning is far more important and should be our greatest concern.  Being a minister, I often get questions from every-day acquaintances, such as “where did you receive your education as a minister?”  This question may be an uncomfortable one for some ministers to answer, but for me it is easy and gives me great pleasure to reply with “from the Bible”.  Now, granted, I have learned many things from many ministers and I have read several theological writings however, the book that I have studied and continue to study on a daily basis is the word of God.  It is the foundation on which each minister has instructed me from and the source of the topics which theologians elaborate.  If what we are teaching/learning is most important, then the greatest and safest content we could ever learn is found in the Bible.

Sermons on iTunes
Written by Josh Winslett   
Tuesday, 11 February 2014 08:20

Over the past year I have began trying to create a internet presence for the church I pastor, Antioch Primitive Baptist Church. I am doing this work for two reasons: 1) to give information about Antioch to people living in or moving to the Oxford area and who may be looking for a place to worship Christ, 2) to allow those who are sick, shut-in, and/or have moved to still listen to sermons preached at Antioch.

David, Abigail, and Nabal

Elder Keith Ellis posted an informative status update to his facebook page this morning from Ephesians 5 on the role of husbands to love and lead their wives as the spiritual head of the home. One comment he made I found especially interesting is as follows:

 

"Men are not to abuse their authority in the relationship by enslaving their wives. Just as our Lord is gracious towards His bride, the church, so should husbands love their wives.

Women are to submit to their husbands in The Lord. Wisdom and discernment are sometimes needed to know when the husbands authority oversteps the bounds of what is godly and right in the sight of God. In such cases the wife should not comply."
