This is a guest post by Shuan Marksbury.  His blog can be found here.

Today, the term “elders” rings sour in many Baptist ears. Perhaps it seems too Presbyterian, or it may seem to authoritarian. Indeed, many SBC churches practice a model of a deacon leadership or have such a congregational government that spiritual decisions are left in the hands of those not holding (and, perhaps, unqualified for) any office.

Brother Vincent has nearly reblogged all of our posts over the past few years. I know he’s reblogged some of your blogs too.
Pray for him, his health and the hospital staff treating him.

Earlier in the week I started expierencing abdominal pain consistent with diverticulitis. My suspicions were confirmed yesterday, it is another bout of diverticulitis with a 4 centimeter abscess.

This marks the 3rd time this has happened, with a heart attack in between. Surgery is not an option at this point do to the abscess and the surgical tean cannot extract using a J.P. drain.

I won’t be exercising my awesome re-blogging skills 😎

Please pray for me and all the hospital staff treating me.

In Christ,

Vincent

Some of you who have followed Rob Barkman’s ministries on WordPress and his Youtube channel might not have heard the news that he has passed away. I was getting concerned last month about his well being from not hearing from Him. I have been blessed by his teachings online. Pray for his wife and family.

Settled In Heaven Blog

  • It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my husband, Rob, the love of my life. But, I also know and take great joy in that he is with our Lord, Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father. I cannot put into words how difficult the last several months have been. First, my mom passed in November and then Rob this past month, both from cancer. At least, neither one was in pain, thank you Lord. It is such a blessing to me to have Rob’s legacy, “Settled In Heaven.” I hope that it is a blessing to you, too, and for anyone who reads it in the future. You will still be able to read and study “Settled In Heaven” in all of the same places…SettledInHeaven.org, on WordPress, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Google+. The YouTube is especially dear to me. Thank you…

Are you going through the blues?  Is your soul despondent?  Do you have a melancholy spirit?  These are all synonomous terms for a depressed person.  Check out this book trailer concerning Lloyd-Jones below.  His treatment on this subject has had a profound impact upon many decades to come.  His treatment on the subject brought back the importance of the sufficiency of Scripture.  In day where psycho-babble is being used as the substitue for Scripture, this resource by the doctor will be helpful for the soul-seeker who needs revival in the midst of despondency.

For the first sermon, please listen to Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ sermon called, “Mind; Heart and Will.”  I found this message helpful because often we ignore that the whole entire being is needed when dealing with the blues.  If we don’t we will continue to carry a heavy load upon our shoulder. May we flee from our sin and may our mind, emotion, and will be dependent upon the Gospel which can inflame us for the holy pursuit of Christ.  Here is the link: http://www.mljtrust.org/sermons/mind-heart-and-will/

For the second sermon, please listen to Pastor Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ sermon called, “That One Sin.”  If is often easy to slide back into depression when that one sin in the past or failure gets resurrected.  Here the doctor brings biblical perspective in how to deal with the matter.  May we move forward for the prize and not look back.  Here is the link: http://www.mljtrust.org/sermons/that-one-sin/

Here are the complete messages below from the series of 24 sermons on depression that was later were compiled and edited to create a book.

For other posts see our Collection of Posts Responding to Bible Contradictions.

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Did Jesus say he would always be with his disciples?”

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

Yes

teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

No

For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me. (Matthew 26:11)

For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. (Mark 14:7)

 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me. (John 12:8)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
