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.

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 06/05/2016

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: John 14:15-21

SBC logo 204x204Description: How does one live a victorious Christian life?  It’s a mystery to many Christians. For many think that it can only come through years of service on the mission field or perhaps 20 years in the pastorate. Yet Jesus spelled it out simply in His everyday teaching as He walked the earth. Today’s message is an effort to clearly and simply offer precious insights to believers, young and old, on the path to a deeper walk with the Lord.

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 5:1-3

Description: John’s epistle is like looking through a kaleidoscope.  He repeats the same truths, but from different perspectives. In this final chapter, John turns the kaleidoscope yet again to present a new view of the themes of loving God, loving the brethren, and obedience to God’s law.  But this time we see it from the perspective of faith.

Assurance and Obedience [1 John 2:3-6]

September 1, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 09/01/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 2:3-6

Description: The seventeenth century puritan, Thomas Brooks, wrote that “assurance is a pearl that most want but a crown that few wear.” A Christian with assurance of faith knows that he belongs to Christ, that his sins are forgiven, that God loves him, and that he will enjoy everlasting life. While many assume that it is presumptuous to desire assurance of salvation, Scripture teaches otherwise. In our text this morning the Apostle John provides us the first of three tests so that the Christian may examine himself and rest, assured!

November 6, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 11/06/2011

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series:  John

Key Text: John 1:35-42

Description: Jesus is calling His first followers; those with whom He would spend three years, teaching them all they needed so to know God. They would be the authority to be the foundation that Christ used to form the Church to worship Him and proclaim the new age of the Kingdom of God. Jesus transformed their lives from fisher-men to fishers-of-men, from the rough and dirty to the pure of heart with a bold purpose and mission. They would be transformed by grace and be the bearers of grace and the prime instruments by whom others would be transformed too.
