Church, Ministry, and the PPP: Should Churches Take Government Handouts?

Byron Williamson First Baptist Church, Pampa, Texas, the church at which I serve as Pastor, has historically refused to use fundraisers as a means of supporting the ministry and mission of the church. That means we don’t allow car washes, bake sales, fundraising product sales to solicit funds from the general public. We trust the Biblical position that the Lord has instructed the people of God to provide for the work of God through the financial gifts that come in through the [...]

Who Was That Naked Man?

Randy White And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. (Mark 14:51-52 KJV) These two short verses in the Gospel of Mark are intriguing, to say the least. Why are they there? Is there some doctrinal significance? And, of course, the question on everyone's mind: who was that naked man? Spiritual Significance Commentaries run the [...]

The Empty Tomb and the Nazareth Inscription

by Mark Musser One of the longest chapters in the New Testament is 1st Corinthians 15 where the apostle Paul sets forth a series of arguments to teach his wayward church in Corinth about the reality of the resurrection of the dead. Written from Ephesus (16:8) in roughly 56 A.D., 1st Corinthians is one of the few letters that have not been questioned with regard to its authenticity. Even the primary guru of German radical historical higher criticism, F. C. Bauer (1792-1860), who superimposed Hegel’s (1770-1831) [...]

It’s Time to Put a Term Limit on the Deep State

Randy White   The Deep State is real and needs to be addressed. What the “average Joe” had not even heard of a few years ago has now become an every-day real and present danger. At least since the election of Donald Trump, Deep State reality has become a water-cooler topic in just about every community of thinking men and women. What is the Deep State? The Deep State is made up of layer over layer over layer of civil service bureaucrats. [...]

EU & EUROPEAN NATIONALSTIC ANTI-SEMITISM

by Mark Musser   It has been well documented for quite some time now with the rise of Islamic populations in Europe that the EU has succumbed to increasing antisemitism. By making the Muslims, who are perhaps among the most unassimilated people groups in the world, the posterchild for politically correct multiculturalism, this is hardly surprising. European multiculturalism is a counterfeit to the American melting pot ideal as it actually rebuilds barriers and divisions between people groups since it celebrates the differences [...]

Why You Should Have a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service and How to Prepare

Randy White In this Publisher's Perspective, I want to give a pastor's perspective.  I have been first and foremost a preacher for almost 30 years, always pastoring a local church, ranging from 25 people to 1200 people in weekly attendance. In these nearly three decades, I have always conducted a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service and found it to be one of the best tools for ministry available to the pastor. Preacher, if you choose to have a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, and do so [...]

Undercover Jehovah’s Witnesses Phone Calls to Churches

Randy White, CEO, Dispensational Publishing House I recently received a phone call in our church office from "Nelson" who was "on break" from his job and had a Bible question. He asked if a pastor was available to take the question, and I, of course, obliged. I was a bit suspicious because he had that "salesman tone" and because he called on a private number, something a true inquirer would rarely do. "Nelson" asked about Genesis 1:27, specifically on the pronoun "He" [...]

Who Were The Sons of God of Genesis Six?

by Christopher Preston, Fairview Bible Church, Fairview, PA INTRODUCTION The “sons of God” of Genesis chapter six have been the subject of much controversy. Respected theologians and pastors differ drastically on their understanding of the identity of these beings. There are four basic interpretations regarding the identity of the Sons of God. The purpose of this paper is to examine these views, and to argue that the sons of God were in fact fallen angels who abandoned their proper domain of the [...]
