Buying--Selling--Heavenly Merchandising

Date: [1940..1970]
Creator: Villines, Frank (1899-1979)
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular chart accompanied a sermon dealing with the Christian walk and the various things in life that get in the way with our personal relationship with God. Many examples are given from both the Old Testament and the New Testament of individuals who 'sold out' and those who remained faithful. "Men Sell out for job, office, money, pleasures, popularity, prejudice, pride, temper, passion, fashion, drink, envy, hate, flesh, world, sin of all kind." "Some never sold out as Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Job, Daniel, Paul, Jesus. What is your price? Some things must not be sold. Some not to be bought." "Whatever your excuse---Anything you allow to stand between you and your duty to God is the price tag of your soul."

Change of Heart

Change of Heart

Date: [1940..1970]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart divides the heath/soul of an individual into four categories or components: Intellect, Affections, Will, Conscience. The apparent argument is that all four components must be taught and changed before a person can truly become a christian. "All the heart needs teaching: intellect only--critic, emotions only--fanatic, will alone--prejudice." "Intellect changed by testimony...affections changed by evidence...will changed by thinking on these...these all lead to obedience...faith purifies the heart...repentance changes the life...confession changed the allegiance...baptism puts one into changed state."

The Christian Race

The Christian Race

Date: [1940..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This unusually graphic sermon chart gets its inspiration from II Timothy 4:7, describing the Christian's walk as a race. The church is depicted as an arena, with Christians on the track--some persevering and some falling to various doubts and temptations. Individuals outside of the arena represent the "rest of the world" that is outside the church. On an interesting note, all individuals drawn are caucasian males. It is conceivable that this chart was made for a week-long meeting.

Essential and the Incidental

Essential and the Incidental

Date: [1940..1960]
Creator: unknown
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. This particular sermon chart outlines and gives examples of commands given in the New Testament (The Essintial) and differentiates them from surrounding details (The Incidental) using three different events described in the New Testament: The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20), The Conversion of Saul (Acts 9:1-18; 22:1-16) and The Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-29, 2 Chorinthians 11:17-34;10:17 and Acts 20:7). Reference is made to what is known as the "CENI Hermeneutic" (Command, Example, Necessary Inference) as the source of those things Essential. Those things Incidental, which many denominations or even individual congregations might disagree about, are said to be governed by Expediency, Decency and Order (1 Corinthians 10:23; 14:40).
