Responding to the pandemic

Responding to the pandemic

by Levi Smith

They make churches shut down, but allow casinos and drive-thru strip clubs to stay open.

They tell Christians they can’t have in-home Bible studies, but they allow thousands to protest. Read the rest of this entry

Pastors

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Pastors

by Levi Smith

I’d like to talk to you as a former pastor’s kid who currently works full time on a pastoral staff. Put your helmet on.

My dad was my pastor for 18 years. Growing up with your father being your church’s pastor gave me a unique vantage point. It wasn’t a superior vantage point, but it definitely gave me a glimpse into ministry life that I now I am exceedingly grateful for. Read the rest of this entry

Racism

Racism

by Levi Smith

I walked out of Food Lion yesterday and met a black man.

I was putting my cart away when he strolled up to put his away. He had a mask on. I didn’t. He was older. I was younger. He was black. I was white. Read the rest of this entry

Friendly Reminders

Friendly Reminders

Friendly Reminders during This Time:

1. Just because people listen to their God-ordained authority doesn’t mean they are rolling over and giving up their liberties. It might mean they are being respectful and biblical. Read the rest of this entry

Hymns

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Hymns

by Levi Smith

Quote taken from an interview done with Keith Getty:

Modern worship is an movement of “cultural relevance.”
It’s “utterly dangerous,” and is leading to the “de-Christianizing of God’s people.’”
“An authentic generation doesn’t begin with catharsis; it has to begin with an authentic picture of the God of the Bible.”
“Over 75 percent of what are called the great hymns of the faith talk about eternity, Heaven, Hell, and the fact that we have peace with God. Yet, less than 5 percent of modern worship songs talk about eternity.” (end quote)

Blaming guns

Here is something I read on Facebook.  I have also included one of the comments that was made to this post.

Blaming guns

by Levi Smith

Here is a fact:
You are an utter fool if you think taking guns away will solve the violence problem.

I try not to be too pointed on here, but this calls for pointedness:

An innocent man got murdered on live stream in front of his friends today while exercising his religious freedom. Two years ago, a gunman murdered over 25 people at point blank range, including women and children.

Both of the gunmen were stopped by other men with guns.

Abuse

by Levi Smith

Recently, a well-known pastor was charged and arrested for abusing a minor. The storyline and reaction to this news brings a few thoughts to mind. Respectfully, Id like to share some of them… Read the rest of this entry

Things every church member should consider

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Things every church member should consider

by Levi Smith

I’d like to share some things that I think every church member should consider:

1. The Pastor(s) is not perfect.
His sins led Jesus to die exactly like yours did. Yes, he should exemplify a high biblical standard of living; just keep in mind that the Bible never asked anyone to be perfect. Please grant him the same grace you desire to hear from his messages. Read the rest of this entry

Living in a sinful world

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Living in a sinful world

by Levi Smith

Listed below are some things that I believe men need to do while living in this aggressively sinful world….

• Make the Bible a priority.
The truth makes and keeps us free. Every day we don’t spend in the Word is a day that #Satangainsground. Love Scripture. Make it a necessary, non-negotiable part of your day. Read the rest of this entry

Wicked men

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Wicked men

by Levi Smith

I sat in my 4th grade Sunday School class in Texas, unaware that wicked men were voting my dad out as Pastor of the church.

My mom poked her head into my Sunday School class and motioned for me to come out into the hallway. She gathered the other siblings, we met my dad and we left that church for the last time.

We went to the parsonage. It was there that my parents told us that our time in Graham, Texas was over. We had only been there for just under a year. We were just getting settled. I had finally found the group of friends I could play with on the playground. And now, because of unbiblical men, we had to uproot and move again. Read the rest of this entry

Esther

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Esther

by Levi Smith

She went in a woman and came out a concubine.

Esther is an incredible story of our gracious God rescuing a His children from impending destruction; but the beginning of this story starts with tragic details of the abuse of women.

King Ahasuerus ordered his own wife, Vashti, to be paraded in front of his men and people because of her beauty. When she refused his command, the men in charge became enraged that a woman would go against their authority. Read the rest of this entry

Rainbow colors

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Rainbow colors

by Levi Smith

Rainbow colors are out in full force this month as our country exalts sexual sin.

But the flaunting of these colors doesn’t make me angry. It actually gives me hope.

You see, those colors represent the long suffering, merciful promise of God to a sinful people. It is Heaven’s signal that God forgives and gives grace!! Read the rest of this entry

Baptists and Catholics

Baptists and Catholics

by Levi Smith

I implore you to take a moment to read these thoughts….👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

For as much as some Baptists crush the Catholic Church, they sure have adopted a lot of their methods.

• Catholics believe in papal authority, which declares that the Pope has full, divine power over the Church and can exercise this power unhindered.
• There are Baptists that believe that their Pastor holds full, perfect, authoritative say so over all things spiritual and can exercise his power unhindered.
