Reality Bible Print E-mail

There is general agreement among Christians that the Bible is true, though sorting out what that means precisely could take up several volumes. We sometimes fail to realize, however, that the Bible is also real, a fact that could help us interpret it better.

This thought came to mind with particular force recently while I was listening to a wonderful sermon by the Reverend Glen Bell, senior pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Sarasota, Florida. Glen was preaching on the Gospel text, John 12: 1-8, in which Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus, anointed the feet of Jesus with a pound of costly perfume. (Click here for audio of the sermon.)

Fairlane Baptist Church revival Print E-mail

Fairlane Baptist Church will be having revival services April 11-14. Services will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and a time of  regular worship a 11 a.m., Sunday. Leading the services will be Rev. Richard Collins. He is a former youth minister at Fairlane, former pastor at Piner and now a full time evangelist and missionary. In the past year Rev. Collins has been to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia. He also did mission work in Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.

It is our hope that you can join us for one or more of these services. We believe that you will be inspired by both the messages of Rev. Collins and the special music that will be presented.

Fairlane is located at 12898 Herringer Road, just off US 27, south of Grants Lick. Hope to see you there April 11-14 for a time of Spring renewal.


Is Tolerance a Christian Virtue? Print E-mail

There’s a New Yorker cartoon that shows a bearded, robed man standing on a mountain speaking to a crowd, saying, “If you believe in me, divide into sects, and kill and hurt as many from the other sects as you possibly can.”

The cartoon recalls that earlier lampooning of Christianity’s sometimes schismatic and hateful traditions performed by Monty Python’s film, “The Life of Brian,” in which Brian (a very reluctant pseudo-messiah) in the course of running from his disciples, loses a sandal and drops his gourd. His disciples promptly split into two opposing sects, one taking the sign of the sandal, the other taking the sign of the gourd.
