    Action

    Action Soul Winning Ministries was started because as believers we place so much value on the building “the Church”. So often it is referred to as “Our Church or Our Home or Our Building” The disciples did not build a structure small or “mega sized” No they went out and took the message to the people. Soon tents, then structures began as people gathered to hear the message, to be fed, to be in fellowship. But first the message was brought TO THEM. Street corner...

    Doctrine or Tradition

    Doctrine or Tradition Recently I took an informal survey of some of the eleven churches in the town where I live. With a population of around 2500 plus another 5000 in motels, hotels and RV parks during the summer this town has a need for churches. This town has no ‘mega’ churches just the typical 50 to 200 seat capacity churches found anywhere in small town USA. So why aren’t they full or over 50% capacity? I decided to ask a few people I know who can be best described as ‘church...

    Old Time Religion

    Old Time Religion Old Time Religion or just Old Fashioned? Visited a church that I had never been into before this last Sunday, it was an eye opener to say the least. I commented on the experience to someone I know, her response, she called me ‘old fashioned’, what did she mean by that? The preacher spoke on Exodus 20:12 “Honor thy father and mother; that thy days be long upon the land which the Lord thy GOD giveth thee.” It was a finely presented counseling session about breaking the cycle of...

    Anguished

    Anguished Anguished, not Angry Galatians 5:7 “. . . who did hinder you that you should not obey the truth?” Let me start off by saying that not all of today’s preachers fall into the ‘group’ that I am concerned about, but one must admit that many have lost sight of what it is to be a man of God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Recently I have become deeply concerned by Pastors saying things like the following; “There is not much difference between heaven and hell”  This...

    Urgency & Consistency

    Urgency & Consistency   It was said of C. H. Spurgeon by one of his enemies; “Here is a man who has not moved an inch forward in all his ministry. At the close of the nineteenth century he is teaching the theology of the first century and proclaiming doctrine current in Nazareth and Jerusalem as in the first century!” Spurgeon considered it his greatest compliment. Many Churches of this century are preaching and teaching outside the scope of the word. Trying everything to draw a crowd except the simple,...

    Food For Thought

    Food For Thought As a baby everything is new to us. We are taught to walk, talk, feed ourselves, read, write and much more. We are vulnerable and helpless on our own at that stage. As we grow we develop insights and desires. Curiosity leads us to discover what we need as well as what we desire for ourselves. We start out in kindergarten, move on to first grade and advance from there until we graduate from high school. At that time hopefully, we have plans to move on by attending college or trade school maybe...

    Serving Self

    Serving Self Serving Self, Ends in Fruitless Death “This world is full of evil, darkness, temptations, satan’s lies and countless lost and enslaved people. It is a waste to engage it. Because it can never ‘rest my soul’.” Words of a man, but words that ring true. Though it may seem to be great words of some long ago learned scholar, they are words of a 21st century man who seeks to follow his Savior by giving up self to serve our Lord. “…. we pursue in vain diligence, self. This...
