Your Sermon is a Success When…

Your congregation reacts like this-

Luke 4:28 – When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. 29 And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. 30 But passing through their midst, he went away.

Quote of the Day

Everyone who knows what is the right thing to do and does not do it commits a sin. (Jas. 4:17)

She Set Her Stepdaughter’s Face on Fire

A suburban Dallas woman has been charged after police say she doused her 5-year-old stepdaughter’s face with rubbing alcohol and set it on fire.

A Grand Prairie police statement Friday says 20-year-old Dalia Jimenez is charged with felony injury to a child and free on $20,000 bond.

Police say officers went to the family home May 13 after a child had been reported as burned and in need of medical treatment. Jimenez initially blamed the burns on an accident while lighting a candle. After detectives found inconsistencies in her account, however, Jimenez admitted that she burned the girl’s face as punishment for yelling.

Police say the child’s father wasn’t home at the time and isn’t considered a suspect. The child and a younger sibling have been placed with relatives.

It’s Realism, not Alarmism

To be blunt- every Christian failing to support his or her local congregation is voting to close that Church.

Every Church member who can’t be bothered with Church or giving is contributing to the end of their own congregation.

That’s not being an alarmist, it’s being a realist

No Amount of Prayer…

Can help a person who will not listen to God.  ‘Hear, O Israel’ is the first commandment- all the rest depend on heeding it.  A person who will not hear cannot be helped, no matter how much they may want to be.

The May 2019 Biblical Studies Carnival – Carnival # 160

Thanks, Claude!

Dr. Claude Mariottini - Professor of Old Testament

The May 2019 Biblical Study Carnival presents a selection of some outstanding posts published during the month of May by Bibliobloggers. “Biblioblogs are blogs which deal primarily with matters concerning academic biblical studies.” The latest “Complete List of Biblioblogs” lists 137 bibliobloggers, but not all of them publish regularly.

The present Carnival mentions twenty-six authors. I have selected several posts by authors who may not have appeared in the Biblical Studies Carnival before. I hope that if you blog about the Old Testament, New Testament, Qumran, or Theology that you will allow bibliobloggers know more about your posts so that readers may become acquainted with the work you are doing.

Future hosts for the Biblical Studies Carnival are listed below. Contact them and let them know what kind of work you are doing and share with them some of the outstanding posts you have written.

So, without much ado, here…
