Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/07/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Acts 6:1-7; 1 Timothy 3:8-13

Description: 

Host: Do you know what a deacon is?

Average Guy: Not really. I just checked the Internet, though, and it said it was someone who was a good friend – one that you could call a brother – and while he might be a pain at times, he’ll be there to help you out if, and when, life takes a turn for the worse.

Host: Not really what I was looking for… but it’s a start. You’d better listen up.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes a break from our study in Revelation to address a question that most Christians don’t have an answer for: What is a deacon?

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

September 30, 2018

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.
