Alter Ego:

If God can prevent our suffering then why doesn’t He?

Scandia Host: That’s a good question.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao steps to the pulpit once again following his son, Isaiah’s, tragic death… to wrestle with this. “How can we go to God for comfort when ultimately, God is the one who could have prevented it and has therefore ordained our pain?”

Alter Ego: Exactly! That’s what I want to know.

Scandia Host: Well, you better pull up a pew and take a listen.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/31/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 98

SBC logo 204x204Description:  While the Bible contains 150 Psalms, there is one that captures the true essence of all of them. And yet, if you didn’t know it, its title would fool you. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao, in the wake of his son’s tragic death, leads us to Psalm 98 – because he was lead there. It’s a psalm that in just nine simple verses, lays out the very heart of worship and the great and wonderful God who is greatly to be praised.

Sacrifice of Praise [Hebrews 13:15]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/17/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Hebrews 13:15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Host: Sacrifice and Praise.

Alter Ego: Wait a minute are we playing a game of opposites?

Host: No, but I can see what you mean. Because “sacrifice” sounds somber and costly.

Alter Ego: –And “praise” sounds joyful… and a lot easier than “sacrifice.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes to the pulpit once again – following the fresh sting of the sudden loss of his son – and points out that when it comes to these two words, it’s not always one or the other, for the author of Hebrews tells us that we are to offer a sacrifice of praise. In fact, much of the New Testament describes the Christian life as the intersection between these two terms, where they not only meet but become intertwined into the very warp and woof of what it means to be a Christian.

God of Comfort [Psalm 119:1-176]

December 3, 2017

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/03/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 119

SBC logo 204x204Description: Psalm 119. It’s not a Psalm we usually go to when looking for comfort, but, ironically, it has more to say about comfort and affliction than any other Psalm.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues to preach in the aftermath of his son’s tragic death and points out that when you see a passage of affliction in the Bible, take heart in knowing that you are not far from comfort — for this pattern, of passages of comfort following passages of affliction, occurs over and over again… in almost every instance. God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts the afflicted.

When it comes to Psalm 119,  we often categorize it as a Psalm about the beauty of God’s word and statutes, but what we’ll find is that, consequently, it is also a Psalm about God’s great comfort.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/26/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 4

SBC logo 204x204Description: How is it that the Christian can be devastated and yet hopeful at the same time? How is it that at the point when we are weakest is also the point at which we are strongest? 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao preaches in the aftermath of losing his son to a brutal horseriding accident and shows us, in the midst of that, that the Apostle Paul answers these questions in the book of 2 Corinthians; and within it we find more beauty in the Gospel for it is Good News even in times like this.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/12/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 34

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s one of the ugliest chapters in the first book of Bible, and yet God  sometimes uses negative examples to teach.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we witness humanity’s stench of sin open for inspection in chapter 34. For in this passage we are reminded that even the patriarchs failed and compromised, and that, shamefully, as it happened, the sons of Israel missed the beauty of the covenant that was right before them – turning, instead, what God called sacred into what could only be described as savage.

Scandia Host: Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where we find that this is the exact scenario Jacob is facing.

Alter Ego: What is he going to do???
