1Pe 2.11 +

1Pe 2.11

“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers & pilgrims,

abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;”


38 of 46 “…Pride & arrogancy…do I hate”(Pro 8.13).

Oba 3 The PRIDE of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?


“His [Christ’s] presence did not drain you.”

– Carl M Eisenhart, sermon 2/11/18


To, when needed, apologize,

Is more important than to theologize.

– eab, 8/20/10


“When the church stays away from the altar

the world will stay away in a greater measure.”

– Carl M Eisenhart, 8/5/19


Your eyes are windows: You see out through them & friends see into your soul through them.

Your mouth is a door. Food & drink go into your body through it. Words, groans, whistles come out of your soul through it. – 8/15/19


Heb 10.39

“But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition;

but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.”


Why Read The Bible? The KJV came near the time “English” was being formed. King James was (as I understand) the most literary man who has occupied a throne. He’s said to have written more while King than any other reigning monarch. Happenstance? Probably not. James translated not a whiff of It, but his writing abilities enabled him to choose the best men to prepare this translation. When you read the Authorized Version Bible you’re reading a gem of “English” in its primary years. Enjoy! – 8/16/19


“If you’re a good listener,

He’s a good Leader.”

– Ken Thompson sermon, IHC, 4/17/18


You feel God is calling you to preach. You don’t feel He’s directing you to a Bible college. A problem? Not at all. Methodism’s greatest days were when few of their British or Am. men had a college education. What they did have was a deep desire to know & obey God. They spent hours a week studying His Word. And hours in prayer – a great training combination. Read your Bible systematically (Let God lead you to His system for you – no one knows your personality like He does.) Read only a few other books making sure they agree with Scripture. Preach the Word. – 8/20/19


“Pray without ceasing – like a mother with a sick child;

she may do other things but her mind is on the child”

– Ken Thompson, sermon 10/3/05
