This week at Payne Church




Traditions are the things we either hold to or run from, especially in the Church. This week we look at what the Bible says about Baptism. Why is there some much arguing over this issue and why do we do it all?

The "evolution" of God

Last night on the Colbert Report, a guy by the name of Robert Wright. He is probably smarter than me but on Jesus and the Bible he is missing something. He grew up Southern Baptist, probably in a Fundamentalist church in OK. So, I'm sure he is responding to some what he heard growing up but some of the stuff he quotes is way off of true historical facts. I haven't read the book but I can respond to what he says in the interview. The interview below.

He says two things, one about Jesus and one about the NT. I recommend Jesus and the eyewitnesses to talk about the reliability of the NT as a written Oral History. Here is a good review of it by Andreas Köstenberger. Also, did Jesus call himself God, see the Michael Bird Book Are You the One Who Is to Come?: The Historical Jesus and the Messianic Question. See a good review of it here. If you are going to criticize someone, at least criticize the best of the argument (not a lesser person).

This week at Payne Church




Traditions are the things we either hold to or run from, especially in the Church. This week we look at what the Bible says about the tradition of Singing. Is more than old songs versus new songs and why do we do it every Sunday?

Luke and Sara's Story

Luke and Sara Shortridge are two people God used in a huge way to show me his grace. Ten years ago, Luke invited me to go to a Christian concert while his buddy Brent and future wife Sara showed me Jesus at a lunch table everyday. They are great people and have been of great encouragement from a distant and up close over the years.

Currently, Luke and Sara are going through a real tough time for their newborn Jackson has been in the hospital for seven straight weeks. This last weekend at their church (Cedarcreek.tv), they showed two videos showing how Luke and Sara have been dealing with things. Enjoy (as much as you can watching a child and his parents suffer through a tough time)!

This week at Payne Church




Traditions are the things we either hold to or run from, especially in the Church. This week we look at what Jesus says about the tradition of the Word. Is it an out dated book with helpful tips for a moral life or something more?

Cheap Hotels?

Okay. I've never done this but it seems sound. At the very least it is worth a try. Financial Guy Joseph Sangl showed this off in his blog today. Here what he said:

I have two friends that have followed these directions and have obtained amazing deals - one is staying at a four or five star resort for $40/night.You can check out the video HERE.

If you try it, let me know.
