Anything in a Name?

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's chief concern is the name by which a local group of Christians is known. A fundamental point underlying this sermon is the conviction that "Bible names unite -- human [names] divide." A name is not a small matter for the church, just as it was significant for Israel. The call, therefore, to hearers is to utilize only 'Bible' or 'Biblical' names for congregations.

Baptism--its Action and Purpose

Description: A bed sheet with text and/or artwork used as a visual aid to a preacher's sermon. In this particular sermon chart, using Acts 19:1-5 as a key text, the sermon begins with the matter of definitions; first transliterated Greek words, then Webster and finally an array of Bible citations to arrive at a definition of baptism as "burial, planting, washing" (as highlighted in red in the left column). This point is further stressed from Romans 6:17-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:1-4: that the "D.B.R." (death, burial and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth) is foundational Christian doctrine expressed in the life of a believer in immersion in water. The right column explores the purposes of baptism. For this preacher apparently the fundamental purpose of baptism is to (in red letters) "obey God."

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."
