Our English Bible – Elder Zack Guess

The following sermon is by a Primitive Baptist Church elder who attended the Conference on the English Bible. He expresses how moved he was to be able to hold some of the early English Bibles that many men and women died for so that we can have one to hold.

There were pastors and members, that I know of, from Presbyterian, Baptist, Reformed Baptist and Southern Baptist, in addition to Primitive Baptist, at the Conference on the English Bible.


Gaining the World and Losing Your Children

We as parents must often reevaluate our purpose in life.

What is your purpose?

What is your purpose in raising your children?

My purpose is to Glorify God in all I do, albeit I fail mightily at times.

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. ESV

Romans 15:5-6
5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus,
6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Revelation 15:4 Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.” ESV

My purpose for raising my children is for the same reason to Glorify God. I am striving to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord in order to Glorify God in what I do and so that they will Glorify God in all they do.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Paul Washer discusses parenting specifically for Fathers, although it is very helpful for mothers also. He covers quality time verses quantity time.

One statement he makes is so true – If sports builds character what about the NFL or the NBA?

How many parents focus on their child and sports and yet they forget the really important thing?

Paul Washer – Sermon In Birmingham, Alabama

Paul Washer was in Birmingham, Alabama preaching last night at:

Grace Coventant Baptist Church
2059 Columbiana Road, Suite 103
Vestavia Hills, Alabama 35216

Todd Wilson is the Pastor

Pastor – [email protected]

Recorded sermons (CD or audio cassette) – [email protected]

The sermons there can be found in the sermon archives.

We have visited at Grace Covenant but we found the hour drive through Birmingham to be too difficult for every service.

However, we might have have gone to hear Paul Washer but we had other commitments. My husband was preaching at another church that evening in the opposite direction. 🙂



The attack on men and fathers.

Stupid. Lazy. Uninvolved. Ignorant. Timid. Detached. Neurotic. Weak. Powerless. Unreliable. Ineffectual. Irresponsible.

What do all these words have in common? They are all descriptions of how men and fathers are depicted in today’s Western culture. …

Watch Out for Myths About Fatherhood

The role of the father is increasingly problematic in the context of modern American culture. Fatherhood has been marginalized and the rule and authority of fathers have been depreciated, ridiculed, and continuously redefined. From the Berenstain Bears to The Simpsons, fathers are all too often the object of ridicule or the subject of the laugh line.

Of course, some fathers bring this marginalization upon themselves as they either neglect or forfeit their own fatherly responsibilities. In many sectors of our society, fathers are most noted by their absence. Indeed, millions of American children are growing up without any significant father figure, much less their biological father. …

Ephesians 6:1-4
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),
3 “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”
4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Proverbs 4:1-4
1 Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight,
2 for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching.
3 When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother,
4 he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live.

Gospel Healing for Hurting Marriages by Voddie Baucham

In an age when Christians seek therapy before the seek the Lord, it is important to be reminded that God is a primary, not a secondary source when it comes to healing hurting marriages. Far from being silent on the issue of conflict resolution, the Bible has much to say on the subject.
