RIDGECREST, N.C. (LCR)—Going from sunup to way past dark is just how it is at Black Church Week. The praising, preaching and fellowship never stop.
The Black Church Leadership and Family Conference (better known as Black Church Week) welcomed almost 1,000 people to the campus of LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center July 18-22. The black church area of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention sponsored the event.
I don’t know any serious Christian who is not of the conviction that spiritual renewal is desperately needed among our churches. Very soon, Florida Baptists will have an opportunity to demonstrate how passionately we hold that conviction through a new effort, “ReVision Florida.” Last month, the State Board of Missions adopted a series of recommendations—some of which go on to the Florida Baptist State Convention for approval at the annual meeting next month in Coral Springs—to implement various recommendations affirmed by Florida Baptists last year in Brandon as part of the Imagine If Great Commission Resurgence task force report.
In Moses’ day, the Egyptian Pharaoh was the most powerful man on the earth. He was the deified ruler of the world’s most glorious kingdom. Believed to be the earthly embodiment of Ra or Re—the Egyptian sun god—the Pharaoh was revered by the Egyptians as a divine despot whose every demand was to be unquestionably obeyed.

Imagine a country where people had never heard of the germ theory of disease. They bathe and wash their hands, not because it was sanitary but because they like the way it makes them feel.
You might think, “It could be worse, they could be slobs,” but you wouldn’t want them as neighbors, because they really don’t understand the difference between health and sickness.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (LCR)—Protestant pastors overwhelmingly agree government should not attempt to regulate pastor’s sermons through reevaluation of a church’s tax exemption, according to a new survey by LifeWay Research.
The research, which was sponsored by the Alliance Defense Fund, followed a related study conducted by LifeWay in October 2010 that found Protestant pastors also largely believe candidates for public office should not be endorsed from the pulpit.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)—If believers allow modern science to tell them what they can theologically affirm, the logic does not end with a discussion of whether there is a historical Adam, R. Albert Mohler Jr. said on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” Sept. 22.
“It continues throughout the entirety of the body of Christian truth. And that is a disastrous route,” Mohler said. “And frankly, you’re either going to accept [or reject] that the Bible gives us the authoritative word concerning the entirety of our understanding of things relative to who we are as human beings, what God did in creating the world and what God did for us in Christ.
Our study today focuses on two miracles performed by Jesus. A desperately ill man and the other, a youth who had died. All of us must experience the second condition, death. Many will hear an oncologist utter the dreaded words, “You have stage four condition. There are no treatments.” For the believer, the prospect of death may not be so terrible. A woman, suffering from a terminal case of cirrhosis of the liver confided, “I wish I could turn off a switch and let it all be over.” We believers accept the fact that some situations are worse than death. Yet, we can discover hope if we follow the advice of one of the old hymns, “Just Trust and Obey.” In the darkest hour we can discover hope—if we trust and obey.
