Sunday Sermon Outline in Wake of Supreme Court Ruling
Written by Ben Winslett   
Sunday, 28 June 2015 17:44

So I am sure there was a lot of pulpit talk today about marriage, government, politics, and maybe even an occasional charge to "take back America." I'd like to share the basic breakdown of my sermon this morning at Flint River Church in Huntsville Alabama. I might also mention that following lunch, those who could stay late reconvened in the sanctuary and the men of our church led us in an extended time of prayer, also called a Prayer Meeting.

I had six major points in my sermon I'll share with the body of Christ for your consideration.

Supreme Court Overrules 50 Million Americans - Legalizes Same Sex Marriage

I'm sure you're as bothered by today's Supreme Court ruling as I am. While everyone was busy arguing over a 19th Century flag, the Supreme Court just legalized same sex marriage. It's a terribly sad day for our country but really, is anyone surprised? Ever heard of Dred Scott v Sandford? Roe v Wade? We deceive ourselves if we expect the "powers that be" to honor God. It's a tremendous blessing when it happens, but using history as our guide we should not expect that to be the norm.

 

Nope. Not surprised. Not surprised at all.

Prayers For South Carolina
Written by Ben Winslett

"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." Matthew 5:11-12

 

I am praying for a devastated congregation and community in South Carolina this morning. I'm sure you've seen that news that a man entered and opened fire during a prayer meeting last night at an AME Church in Charleston. It's hard to fathom someone wanting to act in such cowardice and attack unarmed folks in their most vulnerable state - praying to God in a place of refuge from the world.

The Apostle Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 2 mentions a mystery figure whose appearance is one of the signs to be given prior to Christ's second coming, the Man of Sin. Prior to discussing a few possibilities as to his identity, let's first consider what scripture says about him from 2 Thessalonians 2.

Let Your Communication Be Yea And "Neigh"

Everyone has a hobby horse. I have a hobby horse. You have a hobby horse. We've all got one. What is a hobby horse, you might ask? Wikipedia explains:

From the term "hobby horse" came the expression "to ride one's hobby-horse", meaning "to follow a favorite pastime", and in turn, the modern sense of the term hobby.

A hobby horse is the following of a favorite pastime. In other words, a favorite subject or pet concept. Unfortunately, in preaching, many times the proverbial nag is negative so as our hobby horse presents itself, it becomes more of a routine rant repetitiously grinding on the souls of our listeners. I have fallen into this pit before and am sure many a minister who reads this has as well. It's just too easy!

From Flint River Church's website:

Our 2015 Annual Meeting was a special time of worship and fellowship with Christ and one another. Our guest speaker for this weekend was elder Joe Nettles, pastor of Sulfur Springs Primitive Baptist Church near Caledonia Mississippi. Elder Nettles was blessed to deliver timely and powerful sermons and we were certainly edified by his efforts.

In total, there are five edifying sermons preached by Joe Nettles and Heath Williams. You can visit this link and download/listen to each message: http://bit.ly/1d9i05z

 

 
Sermon Notes - The Book of Acts
Written by Ben Winslett   
Wednesday, 27 May 2015 19:56

In 2013, we studied through the book of Acts each Wednesday night at Flint River Church. At the time, I gathered my thoughts in the form of word processor documents on my computer. I decided it might be worthwhile to compile them into one PDF file to make available for download here at MTZ. These are basic outlines of my thoughts as I intended to present them to our congregation.

Convicting Quote from the Fulton Confession
Written by Josh Winslett   
Wednesday, 20 May 2015 11:46

Today I sat down and re-read the 1900 Fulton Confession of Faith. It is a hobby of mine to read (and re-read) from our ministers of yesteryear and Baptist history in general. The Primitive Baptist Church of Jesus Christ has a rich heritage that I hope all of it's members appreciate. The Fulton Confession of Faith is essentially the 1689 London confession of faith with an added preface, general address, footnotes and appendix. I have read it before, and spot read sections multiple times, but a portion of the general address especially convicted me upon reading it today. It is section 7 of the general address. Section 7 discusses the support of the ministry, and more specifically in connection with my conviction, the work of both pastor and evangelist. Below is the section of the confession that has occupied my mind for most of the day. I have italicized and emboldened certain portions for added emphasis.
