June 8: Pointless! Ecclesiastes from Doug Hibbard on Vimeo.

Outlines:

Morning

June 8: AM: 1 Kings 11

1.1. Scripture intro

1  Now King Solomon loved many foreign women along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women,

2  from the nations concerning which the Lord had said to the sons of Israel, "You shall not associate with them, nor shall they associate with you, for they will surely turn your heart away after their gods." Solomon held fast to these in love.

3  He had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines, and his wives turned his heart away.

4  For when Solomon was old, his wives turned his heart away after other gods; and his heart was not wholly devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been.1

1.2. Summary Sentence

Marriage: every time a culture degrades marriage, it collapses.

1.3. Background to Text

Solomon's many wives for political purposes, sensual purposes, and business purposes;

Why did you get married?

Why do you want to get married?

1.4. Major Theme in Text

Making marriage about anything but reflecting Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5) degrades the purpose (Genesis 1-2) and begins the collapse of God-honoring culture.

1.5. Concepts of the Text

1. When we are not married: if we make marital status and not God-honoring our goal (1 Corinthians 7)

2. When we are not married: if we participate in things reserved to marriage (sexual purity, mainly)

3. When we are married: if we make our marital status as if better (Mark 12)

4. When we are married: if we fail to live as Christ commanded (sacrifice and love)

5. When we are married: if we fail to honor marriage in others

1.6. Application Point

The church must:

Reflect Christ in our Marriages

Reflect Christ's grace in our approach to marriage

Reflect contentment in Christ in our status

Evening

June 8 PM: Ecclesiastes 1:1-2

1.1. Scripture intro

Ecclesiastes 1: pointlessness

1.2. Summary Sentence

When we disobey, nothing great we have is worth having.

1.3. Background to Text

What does it matter?

Without honoring Christ, your wealth, wisdom, and wives are worthless.

Concluding Notes:

1. I do have the rough audio of Sunday Night’s Q&A session, but I’m not sure yet that it’s useful for posting.

2. I am not sure how to improve video quality with the current equipment.

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
