Good Behaviour Is Missional

Category: WTTB Devotions

As I was doing the RMM readings this morning something really jumped out at me in 1 Peter 2.  There is so much talk about "radical" Christian living, that I think we may be inclined to overlook the power of "regular" Christian living!  Peter seems to think that regular Christian living can be very effective in support of our mission.  I've written a reflection on the passage that you can read here. I'll be in the study today preparing the message for Sunday....keep reading»»

Why Is Obadiah In The Bible?

Category: WTTB Devotions

This morning in our RMM readings we read one of the shortest and strangest books of the Bible.  The Book of Obadiah is addressed to people who didn't really know, and didn't even really like God.  Those people don't even exist today and haven't existed for nearly 2000 years.  So why is Obadiah in the Bible?  Why do we still read it today?   I've written a short answer and a longer answer to that question.  You can read the short answer here and the longer answer...keep reading»»

Faith And Works

Category: General

Pastor Paul here.  Have you ever been confused by James 2:24? You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone.  (James 2:24 ESV) At first glance that seems to run contrary to the Apostle Paul’s contention that we are saved by faith and not by works.  Over the years I've received quite a few questions about that and since we hit that verse in this morning's RMM readings I thought it might be useful to post a reflection on the discussion site. You can read it...keep reading»»

Unless They Are Agreed

Category: General

Pastor Paul here.  There was a lot of really useful discussion around the issue of partnership and agreement posted on the adfontes site.  The adfontes site serves a number of groups - we post articles targeted primarily at the B2 group, we post articles directed at our wider clan of CBOQ churches and we post articles we hope will be of interest to our own church membership.  The article posted yesterday was intended for all three.  The leadership here at FBC is interested...keep reading»»

Can Two Walk Together?

Category: General

Pastor Paul here. As many of you will know our church is in a process of evaluating some of our ministry partnerships.  Churches will often find it useful to partner with other churches whether in denominational or missional groupings.  But there are a lot of questions that have to be asked and answered in order for those partnerships to be a blessing rather than a curse upon the church. Questions like, "When should we partner and when should we not?"  "What...keep reading»»

WTTB With Pastor Paul - At Ease In Zion

Category: WTTB Devotions

This morning in our RMM readings we ran across a heavy rebuke against the idle rich among the people of God in Amos 6.  I've written a reflection on that passage along with an FAQ addressing the issue of wealth in general.  You can read it here. Have a wonderful day! Pastor Paulkeep reading»»
