Is unbelief a sin?
Written by Josh Winslett   
Wednesday, 06 January 2016 17:22

This one question seems to be close to the heart of the controversy between the so-called “duty faith” and sound biblical doctrine. One group, called Fullerists, claim that it is the duty of all people to believe and be saved. The other group, Primitive Baptists included, believe that it is only the duty of those touched by divine grace to profess a faith in Christ. This debate often leads to the question of whether or not unbelief is a sin. Those advocating duty faith will often maliciously paint this argument in black and white terms. An extreme position from either side could lead to the destruction of biblical principles. In reality, all unbelief is sin. Yet, it is equally true that people are not held accountable to believe that which isn't true concerning themselves. Not sure what I mean? Let's dig deeper.

That Pesky Cornelius
Written by Admin

Cornelius (Acts 10) is an interesting figure in scripture and does great harm to the common religious notions of today. If contemporary theology were true, Cornelius would have been a condemned man, void of the Holy Spirit, an alien to God and reprobate, never having heard the preached gospel (Romans 3).

 

Yet notice how the author Luke, through the Spirit, describes him in verse 2: "A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway."

 

Cornelius feared God. When he prayed, God answered.

Scriptural lessons are typically learned most vividly from personal experience, and with God, His teaching school is always in session.  I learned a very practical lesson on what being longsuffering means today.

Why Do You Pay Your Pastor?
Written by Josh Winslett

You may have never given this question much thought. Or you have come to the typical conclusion that he was given remuneration for filling pulpit supply. It is certainly a good practice to support someone who fills pulpit supply, but the wages given to your specific pastor is different. Your pastor is not just your pastor when he is filling pulpit supply.

Old Testament Bible Study Aids
Written by David Wise   
Thursday, 10 December 2015 19:49

 

I've realized through discussions with various church members, that the average new Bible student has difficulty understanding how all of the Bible fits together, particularly in the Old Testament.  Due to the order of the Old Testament canon we currently have today, many people don't understand how different books and passages correlate or even "interact" in the continuous story that the Old Testament portrays of the nation of Israel, literally setting the stage for the arrival of the Messiah in the New Testament.  I have uploaded my personal notes, timeline, and verse reference that I compiled during my personal studies throughout the Old Testament this year.  I hope this can aid in your understanding of scripture and the Old Testament.

Obey Them That Have The Rule Over You
Written by Ben Winslett

"Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you." - Hebrews 13:17

 

One of our deacons made some remarks at the close of service yesterday about this text. I had preached from 1 Samuel 16 and God's calling of David, which included a lesson on Samuel's authority and the respect Israelites had for him (See 1 Sam 16:4).

Adoption: A Most Beautiful Work
Written by Ben Cordes   
Monday, 16 November 2015 16:51

“Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,” Ephesians 1:5

 

Adoption is considered a legal term. One legally taking someone born of another and bringing them into their own family and giving that person the rights and privileges that come with being in that family. The child becomes an official part of the family, bearing the name of the parents. How beautiful this concept is! That a person typically in a bad situation can be taken in and loved by someone who is in a better circumstance. What an amazing display of unconditional love.

I Am The Church
Written by David Wise

I’m thankful Ben Winslett approached me about being a contributor on MTZ and this, subsequently, is my first post.  I’m sure I’ll be just as inadequate in this endeavor as I am in all my efforts in the ministry, but I hope to bring some of my thoughts and studies in the future to you in the future, and maybe someone will find a nugget from them.  But nevertheless, in this entry, I want to just share with you what is on my mind in recent months…

 

I had dinner with a good friend a few weeks ago and as we were leaving she asked me a question that she said I should meditate on, a question that was presented to her at church that day.  The question was this: “If [our] church were to close, would the community notice?”
