March to Zion - Latest Content
A Week Later - Gleanings from Acts 4

It has been just over one week since we saw the disappointing, historic ruling by the Supreme Court on same sex marriage. Reactions to this ruling among Christians have been widely varied. The two most predominant reactions that I have seen are complacency and anxiety filled with aggression. It is greatly disappointing that some disciples are completely apathetic, some even supportive, of the ever growing acceptance and normalization of lifestyles that the Bible explicitly condemns. Yet it is equally disappointing that many turn to aggressive anxiety while adopting a demeanor that is not Christ-like at all. Neither reaction should be the standard for the believer in Christ. Sadly, this often seems to be the case. Please take no offense to this observation. There are certainly those who have calmly drew closer to God during these events, but the above observation is the most evident reaction in our culture.

Setting in Order Things Wanting

After the terribly disappointing national events of late last week, my reading this week has been in what are known as the “Pastoral Epistles,” Paul’s writings to two other ministers, Timotheus and Titus. I was reminded this morning while reading through Titus of something I’ve intended to write about for the past month or so, namely, a lack of new ministers as the result of the failure of local churches to engage in personal evangelism.

A Comforting Old Hymn - Be Still My Soul
Written by Ben Winslett

Take a moment to read the poetry of this old hymn by Ka­tha­ri­na A. von Schle­gel, entitled Be Still My Soul. It is featured in most hymnals used by Primitive Baptists. In light of our uncertain future and the recent troubles in our particular culture, I believe it will give you a blessing. I'm serious - take the time to read it. You'll be glad you did.

Sunday Sermon Outline in Wake of Supreme Court Ruling
Written by Ben Winslett

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"
Written by Ben Winslett

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!
