The Book of Philemon

Nov 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Philemon

The Epistle to Philemon begins with just a plain address, so some consider it to be a personal, private letter. Then the question might be asked, Why was it included in the Sacred Canon? Not only did the Lord in His providence so overrule matters, but the epistle contains a lot of meaty thought.

The Epistle to Titus: Choosing Pastors , Christian behavior, Sound Doctrine, Faith/Works, Heretics

Sep 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Titus, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Many brethren think it is unchristian to stop someone’s mouth, yet Paul was telling Titus, who was not an apostle, to do that very thing. Doctrines that are pernicious and damaging to true Christianity should be boldly opposed and stopped, not democratically debated. One should not be timid about opposing a harmful doctrine, nor should such a doctrine be tolerated. Rather, it should be stopped in its tracks.

Scriptural Forgiveness

Mar 16th, 2009 | By | Category: Character Studies, Doctrine

The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. When it comes to forgiveness of one another we need not rely on our own understanding, God knows we might have the tendency to try to justify sin in others to cover our own behavior, or we might have the tendency to be unmerciful, thankfully He spells out how we are to forgive. Jesus gives us the steps of forgiveness of trespasses against us, as we have no business in forgiving sins against other people or against God. Scriptures show the responsibility of each individual to go to the one who has offended them and tell them. Scriptures show the responsibility of “marking” and “avoiding” ones who cause disturbances. Scriptures show the responsibility of the teachers (elders) of rebuking, reproving and exhorting each of the congregation when occasion arises, and to do so publicly if the matter calls for it. So in studying the Scriptural guides of Forgiveness we see how our hearts must be right before God if we are going to be strong enough to follow the course He has set before us.
