I preached through Proverbs 1-11 when I was at Severn Baptist. I never came back to Proverbs or really settled on how to handle the rest of the book, but if I had the thematic approach had a lot to comment itself. I like being able to see how Jon worked through the book.
Does Jon have any advice on what resources & commentaries he found most helpful?
Funny you should ask that, Brent. Have we got the post for you!http://www.baptisttwentyone.com/2013/07/helpful-resources-for-teaching-proverbs/
I didn’t see these on the Fairview site. Are they downloadable somewhere?
I am just curious. You said one concern about his appearance ar your “conference” was his statement about jews Muslims etc all being God’s children. Does John 3:16 not apply to jews Muslims etc.? Every knee will bow and every tongue confess Jesus as Lord. If they choose to worship different or have a different ideology does that make them any less His children and His creation? Didn’t God create every thing and every living being? So they are able if they want to believe in Christ and His free gift of salvation. They just choose not to. I have been SB all my life but to see the SBC push religion over relationship scares me.
I am sorry but I think you misunderstood Ben Carson.
While it is true that Adventist do say that those who worship on Sunday will receive the mark of the beast is only pertaining to the end of time just before Jesus comes back. The ? is , when is Jesus coming back. Nobody knows.
I believe that Adventist will be persecuted because they observe the Seventh Day Sabbath and not Sunday as millions of Christian look down on Adventist today.
Also the comment you made as God loves all people whether non believers, Jews and Muslims the bible does give the assurance of Salvation based on Jesus Christ.
What is your real reason for not wanting Ben Carson to speak? Why are you afraid for the appearance of being associated with the Republican Party?
The conservative Republican Party is the ONLY PARTY that has been a friend of Christians since the Democratic Party adopted the anti-Christian, anti-traditional values hippie ideology of the 60’s and 70’s and started supporting their humanistic ideology!
I don’t care if you are 21, 31, 41, or 81, the Bible remains the truth for all Christians, age or pop culture has nothing to do with it. I am young too, but I can see the anti-Christian things that are happening in America.
If you are afraid to take a stand for Christianity by having speakers, political or otherwise, that basically believe 90 percent of the fundamental morals, values, and Christians principles that ALL Chrsitians believe, then you are catering to the fence straddlers and the liberals and atheists in America. In Jesus’ words, that is lukewarm.
Ben Carson is a great man, a great black man, a child of God, a great Christian, and a great conservative. If you have have a problem with any of those items, then you are not the Christian you should be.
Where do you Baptist21 members stand on the social isssues that are dividing America…………abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage. You should know what the Bible says about those items. So there should be no question about where ANY Chrsitan stands on those issues.
We’re not to follow the world, or pop culture, or Hollywood, or MTV …….. WE SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW THE BIBLE.
I do not agree with Ben Carson about his Easter statement about Muslims either. But I do agree with Ben Carson that our nation is at a crossroads, and Christians everywhere should be STANDING TOGETHER or America is going to be lost to a point of no return……………..we are close to that already.
IT’S TIME TO QUIT PLAYING GAMES, ALL CHRISTIANS ARE IN ON THIS TOGETHER. OUR MINOR DIFFERENCES OF OPINION SHOULDN’T MATTER. PLAYING GAMES WITH THE IDEA WE DON’T WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH A POLITICAL PARTY JUST BECAUSE IT IS NOT POPULAR WITH THE POP CULTURE, THE LIBERAL NEWS MEDIA, THE HOLLYWOOD TRASH, AND OTHER ATHEISTIC LIBERAL ENTITIE…………, OR TAKING ISSUE OVER SOME BIBLICAL POINTS WE DISAGREE WITH HAS TO BE PUT ASIDE TO SAVE OUR NATION AND UNITE US AS CHRISTIANS TO BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE AHEISTIC POWERS THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US.
You need to do some research on the history of the Democratic party, and you will see a turn away from the same values that the Republicans still support and defend today toward humanism and atheism that took place inside the party in the 70’s when they adopted the humanitic hippie ideology.
It doesn’t matter about your age…………Christians are not here to bow to peer pressure, or follow the crowd. They are here to be “on-fire” for the Lord, not for the world.
None of us are perfect, me, Ben Carson, or you members of Baptist21…….NONE OF US. So you need to quit splitting and dividing Chrsitians and start defending any in the political arena that will defend and support Christians and their faith. We don’t want to alleniate good Chrsitian politicians and send them over to the enemy of Christianity………the Demon-crats.
I’ll be praying that your eyes will be open to what is happening in America and not let your youth blind you to what is going on in America. I’ll also be praying for you to seek wisdom and councel from the Lord so you can help Christians unite and fight the evil that is taking place in America………. because it appears you have not done that in this case.

A great reply, Wade T. Smith. I haven't checked the party platforms lately but they should be different, with one lining up with Christian values and the other one not so much- unless neither lines up with Christian values- due to a lack of participation on the part of Christians.
