Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit to address this apparent contradiction surrounding the Biblical doctrine of justification as he continues his “5 Solas Series.”

And what we’ll find is that when it comes to reading scripture, “first glances,” as one blog author put it, “are not enough.”

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/04/2019

Preacher: David Teves, guest preacher

Key Text: 2 Timothy 3:14-17

Description: The Protestant Reformation — an event in church history we tend to associate with Martin Luther and other 16th Century reformers. We tend to forget, however, that Jesus Christ was the Original Reformer.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit and shares that Martin Luther and others were simply following Jesus’ example. For the Pharisees and scribes held that the traditions and laws of man were equal with Scripture — just as the Medieval Church and the Pope, 1500 years later in Luther’s day, said that Scripture AND tradition were the authority on truth.

…And, the argument continues to this day: To find truth, are other influences required to come alongside the Holy Scriptures of the Bible… or is the Bible enough?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves, fills in at the pulpit and digs into these questions by looking at a familiar text, but does so in a way that many churches fail to address — by looking at the context of the letter in which it was written.

Intolerance, Love, and Hate [Revelation 2:1-7]

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 09/30/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:1-7

Description: The Ephesians were intolerant and haters… and for that, Jesus praised them.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that in Christ’s letter to the church of Ephesus, He, indeed, did praise them for their intolerance to evil and hating the things He hates.

But most of us don’t consider intolerance a virtue, nor think that there would be something that Jesus actually hates… let alone, wants us to hate too. But that’s exactly what we read.

And in the midst of this, we are told to love.

Sound contradictory? Not at all. SBC logo 204x204

Let’s love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates… and in so doing, know what it is like to walk in Truth.
