It Is No Secret

It Is No Secret

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The key text for this sermon chart appears at the foot of the cross, Romans 10;17. Two figures flank the cross, Noah to the left and Naaman to the right. Both are biblical figures and both are accompanied with appropriate textual citations. On the cross is a serpent, citing Number 21:6-9, representing the salvation of Israel in the time of Moses. The question put before the hearers of the sermon is, will you obey God like Noah, Naaman and Israel did?

The Right to the Tree of Life

The Right to the Tree of Life

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. The narrative flow of this sermon chart proceeds from the tree of life in the Biblical Garden of Eden (left) to the tree of life in heaven at the end of time (right). The tree has been "transplant[ed]." In the mean time, there is a play off of truth and falsehood, again drawing from the account of Eve's believing a lie in the Garden of Eden and applied to modern times by way of citation from 2 Thessalonians. The alternative to persisting in lies is to "purify [one's] soul by obeying the truth." Just as one can hear, believe and obey a lie (and be "lost in sin"), so can one hear, believe and obey the truth (and be saved from sin). Such constitutes the sermon's central exhortation.

The Royal Priesthood

The Royal Priesthood

Date: [1970..1990]
Creator: Burtch, Kenneth & Burtch, Kenneth
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart contrasts the Levitical priesthood (figure on the left) with "every Christian" on the right, citing ten Biblical passages. The major point of the sermon is to demonstrate that every Christian is a priest before God and that the elements of the Levitical priesthood (cited specifically is "animal sacrifice") are no longer in effect for "every Christian."
