Twickenham church of Christ
The book of Joshua is full of wonderful stories and vexing questions -- questions for which there are no easy answers. It teaches lessons we did not know we needed to learn and challenges us in ways we would prefer to avoid. But it gives us something we need - faith - for a place we have never been - the future.
These are sermons that are not in a series or theme.
Is the Bible all it’s cracked up to be? Is it really from God in any significant way or did imaginative people just make up all those stories? Is it true? Is it reliable? Can we trust it? Is the Bible authoritative and, if it is, what does that actually mean?
If God is so good, why is the world so bad?
Would you hold onto your convictions, stand your ground and refuse to compromise even if God did NOT deliver you? That’s what the heroes in this story did. That’s what we can do, too – if we know what they knew. Join us.
Few things get more of our attention - or get our attention more - than money. Every day it is earned, spent, borrowed, saved, wasted, given, hoarded, worried over or wished for. You probably know that the Bible has a lot to say about money. About 15% of the words in the Bible are devoted to it. Given that God owns everything (Psalm 24:1 - 2), you have to wonder why he spends so much time talking about it. Maybe that's because he knows us so well. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart is also." In other words, we put our hearts into the things we treasure. And if money - and all it can buy - has our hearts, we're in trouble.
An occasional series about elders, deacons and other leadership roles at Twickenham. We usually touch on this topic when we are about to consider new leaders.
