The Only Right Worldview (11)

5/26/19 AM

A worldview includes the Day of Judgment, the decay of man, nature, and wisdom.

Any worldview must include Judgment Day and earth burning up - it and all things in it will melt away (#25). This fact will alter thinking. Man is degenerating (#26). Nature can also teach truth (#27). Only Bible ethics are right (#28). Only Bible priorities are right (#29).





The Only Right Worldview (12)

5/26/19 PM

A worldview should include history, economics, society, angels, and nature.

History is the work of God; look for His hand in it (#30). Bible economics trump what men think (#31). Rules for society to function best are from the Bible (#32). Angels are active in all spheres of human action (#33). We should view nature as the Bible teaches it (#34).





The Measure of a Man

5/22/19 PM

Church men met to learn true measures of winners against worldly measures.

Every man has pride of life in him, and Satan and the world tempt him to compete in life by goals the Bible does not stress. The Bible has goals, duties, and measures for men to be winners - to be great - in the sight of God and good men. They must choose right priorities.





The Only Right Worldview (9)

5/19/19 AM

A worldview includes the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of God, and proper worship.

We have God with and in us, which transforms us in this world by mighty power (#15). The kingdom of God is here with Jesus crowned (#16), and we at war against the world (#17). Proper worship must be in spirit and in truth (#18). It must be simple and orderly (#19).





The Only Right Worldview (10)

5/19/19 PM

A worldview includes religion, its spread, keys to find it, and results of conduct.

Religious doctrine must be based entirely on the Bible (#20), and it must be perpetuated by a Bible means (#21). Faith is crucial for truth, so it must be built up (#22). Confidence, or pride, hinders truth (#23). God has offered to bless or curse your life; it is your choice (#24).





Seven Baptist Heroes

5/15/19 PM

Seven young men had slide summaries for key Baptist heroes of early America.

Early Baptist heroes for religious freedom and spread Baptists ... John Clarke by Matthew B. ... Henry Dunster by Nathan C. ... William Screven by Bryant C. ... Shubal Stearns by Collin C. ... Isaac Backus by Austin H. ... John Gano by Daniel A. ... John Leland by Daniel J.





I Gave Egypt for Thy Ransom

5/12/19 AM

Isaiah 43:3-4 teaches God proved His love for Israel by killing nations for them.

God measured and proved His love for His elect by killing His Son for them. But there is another measure and proof He used that is not preached - He destroyed and killed individuals and nations for the benefit of His people Israel. He does the same for us, if you will consider it.





The Oracles of God

5/12/19 PM

Romans 3:1-2 teaches that the chief benefit to Israel was having the O.T. Bible.

Paul told the Jews the greatest benefit they had was the oracles of God - the Bible. It is incredibly superior in every way to the Oracle of Delphi of the Greeks. This part of our worldview must be appreciated and defended. We are Bible Christians before we are Baptists.





The Only Right Worldview (7)

5/5/19 AM

Our worldview affects our thoughts, words, actions, or interaction with the total world.

This sermon covers #8 and #9 about the devil, who is a real foe. Any worldview that does not deal with him is ignorant and wrong. Axiom #10 is the fact that corruption, decay, and death of all things occurs due to sin in Eden. Axiom #11 is that man loves lies and death.





The Only Right Worldview (8)

5/5/19 PM

Our worldview must include unconditional eternal life, limited religion, and Jesus.

Axiom #12 says God saves unconditionally - eternal life is a gift. Thus, axiom #13 reduces religion to a limited role for other benefits. Axiom #14 declares the universe is a stage for the drama of God magnifying His glory through His Son saving some and judging others.





Bible Study Tools 2019

5/2/19 PM

Single-page table summarizing Bible study approaches and tools for direction.

God chose to communicate to us with WORDS. He providentially put them in VERSES. We search the Bible to find His will on all TOPICS. These are the three approaches of Bible study. There are tools and tiers for each approach, and there are special tools to go even deeper.

The Only Right Worldview (5)

4/28/19 AM

The right worldview depends on marrying right, which great men did carefully.

Axiom #5 ... Jehovah is the only God, which quickly separates Him from others. Yahweh is a manmade mistake for the name of our God. See Exodus 3:14 and 6:3 and Psalm 83:18. Axiom #6 ... God created all things for Himself. Your life is not about you. Life is all about Him.





The Only Right Worldview (6)

4/28/19 PM

Our worldview brings comfort in the face of sensationalized news and the events of life.

Axiom #7 ... God rules over all. Nothing is out of His control. Nothing confuses or surprises Him. All the things men fear are Him working out His will. Terrible acts of violence are under His direction. The wrath of man always praises Him; He does not allow any other (Ps 76:10).





Bible Study Tools 2019 (1)

4/24/19 PM

PPT study of tools for the Bible to computer programs and now to smartphone apps.

God has blessed us with tools far beyond any before us. Therefore, we should know His word better than those before us. But they were diligent men to leave us the tools they did. Now we have computers and smartphones to put the Bible and all the tools in our pockets.





The Only Right Worldview (3)

4/21/19 AM

Review importance of a worldview and fight with the world. We must hold truth fast.

God called His children out of the world to think and live differently from it. We must hold fast the fundamental facts of truth He has revealed to us. We start with His existence, and we move to the Bible. The world hates both, but these two gifts give us light for life.





The Only Right Worldview (4)

4/21/19 PM

We know God exists and gave us detailed truth in the Bible to govern our lives.

Axiom #1 ... God is. Axiom #2 ... God gave scripture. Axiom #3 ... God created all things. Axiom #4 ... The Bible is absolute truth. We exist for the glory of God. He created us and all things around us. He gave us an incredible final authority for truth on all life subjects.





The Problem of Evil (2)

4/17/19 PM

Atheists attack God and Christianity and use evil in the world as their argument.

The world is full of evil, but God rules on high. He gave us a perfect world; we chose lies and death over truth and life. Man himself is the active and direct cause of evil. God is holy and just and rules all evil for His glory, though few understand it. This is a review of 4/15/2015.





The Only Right Worldview (1)

4/14/19 AM

Bible Christians have a particular, exclusive worldview - sermon here is introduction.

Your worldview is how you view the world - how you see life - especially in big matters of where you came from, for what purpose, how you should live, and what is your future. All have a worldview, good or bad, and it sets their beliefs, actions, responses, worship.





The Only Right Worldview (2)

4/14/19 PM

The perfect worldview starts with existence of God and giving us truth in the Bible.

God is ... first axiom of the perfect worldview. Creation proves it. All men clearly see and understood it. Altering this first axiom ruins a worldview. God gave scripture ... the second axiom of the perfect worldview. The Bible is supernatural unlike any other holy book.
