Sunday Morning Preview - April 22, 2018

Please join me this Sunday morning as we continue our journey through the Book of Malachi with the conclusion of my sermon entitled Land of Delight.
In Part One we asked and answered a couple of very important questions regaurding this well known passage:

    • Does the teaching on tithing in Malachi 3:9-10 apply to us today?
    • Is the Christian who does not tithe cursed with a curse?
    • Why doesn’t Paul use the command to tithe to enforce his efforts to raise money in the NT?

A correct understanding of scripture does not allow us to place Christians under a command to tithe, especially not a command that carries with it any kind of curse for failing to comply. How then can the church survive in a time when there is no end to consumer options and opportunity?

Sunday Morning Preview - April 8, 2018

We all knew this day was coming. From that first fateful moment last October when I announced my intention to preach a series on the Book of Malachi … 
we resisted it, tried to ignore it, but  all along … 


Malachi 3:9-10 has been relentlessly approaching, consuming our thoughts, denying us sweet sleep; looming on the horizon like a dark storm cloud ready to rain down death and destruction.

Well, okay, maybe I’ve been obsessing about it a little more than most of you have. 

Here is the million dollar question I intend to answer as we walk through this next passage:

Does the teaching on tithing in Malachi 3:9-10 apply to Christians?

I hope you will join me!
