I WALK THE LINE

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

 I WALK THE LINE My friend Craig Edwards has discovered that there is no way to remain in favor with Fundamentalists unless you walk the line they draw.

A ONE STRING MINISTRY

Friday, July 1st, 2016

ADVICE TO YOUNG PREACHERS “One of the evils of such a course is to beget in his mind a monstrous development of that particular truth. He soon loses the symmetry and proportion of a Christian man, becomes too much a man of one idea, loses sight, in a great measure, of other branches of reform, […]

CONDITIONED REFLEX

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

CONDITIONED TO RESPOND ON CUE? By Ken Blue If you are observant, you will notice that when you hear one person in church cough, others will cough also. Likewise, if one person gets up to go to the bathroom, others feel the same urge. You will notice that, many times, when you scratch your nose […]

THE WRECKING CREW

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Critics in the Church. By Ken Blue. Every church has critics in the church.  They are like members of a demolition crew. These men/women cannot be detected by steel toed shoes or by hard hats.

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

WHY SOME CHURCHES CANNOT GROW By Ken Blue Dr. Tom Malone said, “An expert is any old spurt away from home.” I am not an “expert” on any topic. However, over the years, I have observed a few things that hinder the numerical and spiritual growth of a church. I list some of them, but […]

THE NOVICE

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

THE NOVICE “Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.” 1 Timothy 3:6. Every man possesses some pride, but pride must not possess the man. That is the danger and likely outcome for the novice who is rushed into the ministry without proper preparation. His primary […]

NEEDS AND TRENDS IN THE CHURCH TODAY

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

THE CHURCH TODAY SHOULD BE AWARE OF EVIL TRENDS By Ken Blue Although needs and trends are not synonymous; needs may change as trends change. Trends can be good or evil. Certainly, no church should follow evil trends. The spiritual needs of believers never change. However, how the church addresses and meets those needs must […]

THE RASH MOUTH

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

DEALING WITH A RASH MOUTH Recently I read the newsletter by a big mouth independant, KJV, Baptist Evangelist (?) who called Rick Warren, with whom he disagreed, “That Devil”. The following article by Charles Finney describes such rashness. [pullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]”Take heed to yourselves that you be not rash”[/pullquote] “Take heed to […]

WHAT IS LEADERSHIP

Monday, April 6th, 2015

WHAT IS LEADERSHIP # 3 By Ken Blue John Maxwell says, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” If that statement is true, the pastor’s call to the ministry is really a call to leadership. Perhaps the following definitions Webster will help. “To show the way to by going in advance. To guide or direct in […]
