  • Textus Receptus vs. Critical Text

    Having grown up in the Hyles movement and since rejecting most of what I was taught in the movement, I am no longer KJVO in the extreme sense of the term. My position would be closest to PastorJ's - TRO. My position is based upon what I was taught at Bible college and that is that the Received Text is based on over 5,000 manuscripts that are in agreement with one another and were found spread out all over the Middle East. The Critical Text, however, is based largely on fragments that do n

    What's the Big Deal Saying KJV1611?

    This topic is not to discuss the accuracy of the KJV or other translations, but to discuss the use of saying "I use the KJV 1611 Bible" Is it wrong to say that we use the KJV 1611 or should we say KJV 1763? A common argument against the KJV is to say that we don't use the 1611 Bible but rather the 1763. I understand what took place in the English language for the updates that took place in 1763, and I also understand why I say KJV 1611. Nobody that I'm aware of says that the Bible I re

    Fearful Sights!

    There is no parallel from the other gospels for the following quotation from Luke 21. Has anyone studied this, I'm trying to gather all I can.  "and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven." [Luke 21:11] What will these "fearful sights and great signs...from heaven" be? Is the Lord speaking of Godly signs, man-made signs, or signs of deception by Satan? Or, is it in reference to Luke 21:25-26 and Mark 13:24-25? "and great signs shall there be from heaven; as come

  • Thoughts On Psalms 119 ALEPH

    Psalms 119:1-8                                         Sep. 5 - Oct. 2, 2019 1 ALEPH. Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD. 2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. 3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. 4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. 5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! 6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. 7 I

    Joseph and his Jewish Dreams

    Genesis 37:5-11, “Joseph and his Jewish Dreams”   Joseph had faith and loved the Lord God. In the Old Testament, before the Bible was written, God spoke to men in dreams. God had given Joseph dreams. As we read the story of Joseph, we can see that Joseph was like the Lord Jesus. Joseph was a type of Christ. Joseph walked with God and had the characteristics of the Lord Jesus.   Also, Joseph is a good example for the Christian. God gave the examples of the Old Testament men an

    Cain: A Model For Modern Christians

    Why is it that many Christians today seem to be following and serving God but do not seem to be blessed by God and in the end fail and fall away? Cain is a perfect example of Why.... Outwardly he appeared to be a Model Christian. He Sacrificed to God, God spoke to him and he spoke to God. He asked for forgiveness and obtained mercy from God, and people saw God's mark on him. So why did he fail? In this message we discuss the reason why he and many apparent "Godly" Christians like him fall away f

    "The Gathering of the Nation of Israel"

    As the prophet Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Hosea prophesied, one day, the Good Shepherd, the Lord Jesus, will gather the remnant of the Jewish race, back to the land of Israel. The gathering of the nation of Israel, as prophesied by the Lord Jesus in Matthew 24:29-31, will exceed the gathering of the children of Israel by Moses as recorded in the book of Exodus. The gathering of the children of Israel from Egypt by Moses will pale in comparison to the gathering of the children of Israel by the Lord J

    UNASHAMED: Romans 1:16-17

    This is my first sermon and would like some feedback. I am looking for feedback on the content of the sermon i.e. were there any error's in my teaching, doctrinal issues, etc. I am more concerned with preaching truth than how I look and sound. My pastor was pleased with the content and so was my grandfather who has been an independent baptist pastor for 50 years. I take them at their word but I would like feedback from other folks. https://youtu.be/X_ygaJ-Mf8E?t=2441

    Critical Truths About The Scriptures Everyone Should Know

    Critical Truths About The Scriptures Everyone Should Know Introduction This message is entitled "Critical Truths About the Scriptures Everyone Should Know." These critical truths will be taught through an historical drama told from the Old Testament. The main characters of our historical drama are little known or not known at all. Allow me to introduce them to you. First, there is the prophet Jeremiah. He is sometimes called “the weeping prophet” because of his tears that he she

    • If you're comfortable telling us, I'm curious as to what the rental cost is for your church if you rent a building. You do not have to give church name or location, I'm curious as to how much churches spend on rental buildings, especially church plants.

      I started our church 5 years ago in Connecticut, and we pay $1500/ month for 2,000 square ft. and we got a great price for our area.

      I understand that each location will have different rental costs.

    • Being part of a small church we always seem to have some sort of distraction. While in a larger church some distractions may not be all that noticeable, smaller churches they become a bigger distraction. 

      Our service yesterday started off like it normally does  and everything was going along as planned. My daughter was scheduled to sing the special right before the preaching. We had a guest speaker Jonathan Lyons the VP for Missions for Forgotten Peoples with us. 

      In the middle of my daughters special, I noticed a gentlemen coughing a little, then it keep getting louder and more frequent. Then the gentlemen next to him started doing the same thing. I didnt think too much of it as he was offered a cough drop. Then it slowly started overcoming more and more people in our auditorium. I saw my staff frantically moving around trying to figure out what is going on. Next thing I know nearly everyone is in tears coughing and choking. I then suddenly stopped the special and instructed everyone to leave the auditorium to figure out what was going on.

      Apparently one of out bus kids was playing with my daughters keys in which there is a pepper spray attached to the chain. Well, he opened it and accidentally sprayed some in the air.  

      We're thankful everyone is okay and now the joke is that the pastor (me) is tried to poison the church.  

      Those watching out live stream were so confused as to what was going on. Definitely never a dull moment at Highpoint. 

      I think I missed the class in Bible College on how to handle this situation.
