Trust and Obey

October 5, 2015

Trust and Obey Preaching is both an oral and an aural experience: oral because it is communicated by the spoken word; aural because its message is received by means of hearing.

Temptation and Trust

December 4, 2017

Temptation and Trust In popular books and films, temptation is often portrayed as the dark desires for things like sex, power, or money.

Do Not Trust in Riches

January 2, 2015

Do Not Trust in Riches During 2000 to 2001, the U.S. economy endured what has been called the dot-com bubble.

False Teachers Cannot Be Trusted

January 3, 2015

False Teachers Cannot Be Trusted Florida pastor Charles Lawrence Kennedy had a wonderful message: God had led him to an investment opportunity that would turn $1,000 into $1,000,000 in just 90 days.

Lure of Temptation: A Question of Trust

March 8, 2013

Lure of Temptation: A Question of Trust The United States spends about $310 billion a year on tort litigation.

Trusting God for Victory in War

June 18, 2014

Trusting God for Victory in War In the days of Eli the priest, the Israelites went into battle against the Philistines carrying the Ark of the Covenant.
