Saved by Grace-Eph 2:8

Saved by Grace-Eph 2:8

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: Villines, Frank (1899-1979)
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, the preacher understands grace to be the organizing principle undergirding the seven means of salvation cited in the upper left column. Each appears to emerge from grace. Next the preacher presents the plan of salvation ([H]ear, [B]elieve, [R]epent, [C]onfess, [B]aptism) as it was also practiced by the Ephesians. Further, Paul was also "saved by grace" in this manner. It appears the second set of abbreviations stand for faith, repentance, baptism and obedience in the grace and blood of Christ. The final appeal, "Why should his great love -- grace -- blood be in vain?" draws the hearers to the point of decision and closes the sermon on an evangelistic note.

Salvation of Noah-Type

Salvation of Noah-Type

Date: [1900..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 employs typology, an interpretive strategy by which a single concept (in this case salvation) is explained by way of noting similarities between two persons (in this case Noah and the hearers of the sermon). Assuming unity and consistency of the Biblical message, typological interpretation one example serves as a pattern by which or lens through which another is interpreted. For this preacher, the key Biblical text is 1 Peter 3:19-20. It appears considerable time is spent in developing the plan of salvation, particularly baptism.

Transforming Power of the Word of God

Transforming Power of the Word of God

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 sermon chart starts with the story of the prophet Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones--Ezekiel 37:1-12. The notes on the chart make it very hard to follow the thought of the speaker without having narrative to go with it. The overall point seems to be that the power of God is found in the reading of scripture and obedience to the Gospel.

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth

Date: [1900..1960]
Creator: Villines, Frank (1899-1979)
Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, it appears the preacher assumes the hearers are Christian, that they have, as in the introduction from Matthew 25:1-13, assumed the role of 'wise virgins' and from 2 Peter 1:4, partake of the "divine nature." The preacher's task, therefore, is to explore what constitutes Christian "Spiritual Growth." The several texts with direct explanations provide opportunity to develop this theme.

On this particular sermon chart, the stylized hands flanking the cross, with fingers pointing to it, emphasize the sermon's main point. The colored lettering emphasizes, strikingly, the same point. Setting up a contrast against the three branches of the US Federal Government (Legislative-Judicial-Executive), the preacher declares Christ is "LORD of ALL" and "HEAD in ALL."
