Pastor Bob’s Blog

Pastor Bob’s Blog

Why? That was the answer to a statement I made concerning me writing a Pastor’s Blog for Lakeview Baptist Church. I must admit, that caught me by surprise.
The answer to his three-letter question will take some time to answer.
First, we live in the 21st century and everything is going digital if it hasn’t already done so. I own a wrist watch that allows me to make and answer calls. It just makes sense to throw a “hook” into the digital waters.
Second, a blog (binary log) gives me another avenue to complete the “Great Commission.” We are to “preach and teach.” A blog gives me a chance to craft a simple, single Bible study, meditation or encouragement to the digital world.
Third, I can share my thoughts about the Scriptures, doctrine or the Christian life in short essays.
Pastor Crowder will be doing most of the writing, however, other members, deacons or teachers may make cameos.
Mostly, this blog will be fairly random, covering a wide array of topics. HOWEVER, I will not discuss politics.
Topics like; doctrine, parenting, prayer, pastoring, bible study helps and current cultural issues.
This blog is devoted to learning.

Finding the Truth – Answer to last weeks question.

Last week I left you with a question, “Where did Cain get his wife?” (Genesis 4:17) This question is commonly asked of Christians that publicly profess their faith at some point in their life. It is meant to confuse and dissuade the Christian from further attempts to witness to them. On Wednesday evening, we looked at this question following our a common format: What is the question? Where did Cain get his wife?” How would you answer this question? This…

Finding the Truth: Question 1

Purpose of this Study: Prepare The purpose of this study, is so that when you are openly witnessing to someone, perhaps over a cup of coffee, you can answer them based on a repertoire of answers you have developed through studying God’s word. Answers to questions that you have already studied and memorized. The first question asked is, “Where did Cain get his wife?” (Genesis 4:17) This question is commonly asked of Christians that publicly profess their faith at some…

Finding the Truth

There’s not a day goes by that I don’t apply some form of apologetic to my life. The whole idea of defending one’s faith, seems a bit frightening and sometimes even overwhelming. However, the Scripture is full of “answers to hard questions.” Even those questions that you may not have even thought of or asked yet. I use apologetics when I write sermons, Bible studies, blog, and Facebook. People have questions. As Christians, we should always be ready to provide…

Life of Gideon

The Cycle of Sin of Israel Hebrews 11:32 And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets: Moses, the man God chose, lead the children of Israel out of bondage in the land of Egypt. God met with Moses on Mt. Sinai and gave him the Ten Commandments and the Book of the Covenant. Moses set up order within the twelve tribes and led…

Life of Gideon – Introduction

The events included in the Book of Judges cover a turbulent period in the life of Israel, from about 1380 – 1050 B.C. — the time of the conquest of Palestine to the beginning of the monarchy.

Three Take-A-Ways from Resurrection Sunday

One day after we celebrated “Easter” or as we call it around here, “Resurrection Sunday”, I was reminiscing about the whole weekend and the following notions and ideas took over my thoughts: Easter still means something special in the state of Texas. While many things have changed, namely the number of stores that were on a normal Sunday schedule or those that had shorter hours, people as a whole still have a desire to worship on that day. In central…

Jesus Never Waivered In His Mission

Once Jesus left His ministry years in Galilee behind Him, He fixed all His attention to Golgotha. His sacrifice on the cross was the fulfilment of why He was born into this world. For almost three years Jesus shared the message God had instructed Him to deliver to the Nation Israel. “Repent, for the Kingdom of God/Heaven is at hand.” JESUS NEVER WAVERED IN THAT MISSION Even though Jesus was on His way to take part in the Feast of…

Jesus is the Fulfilment of Prophecy

Jesus mission on earth was “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). However, Jesus accomplished all the work that the Father gave Him to do as “Prophet, Priest and King.” Jesus: the Prophet God chose the OT prophets to proclaim His word to His people. Their job was difficult, for when God raised up a prophet, it was…

Looking towards the Resurrection

In just a few weeks, we will be celebrating Easter. This is the “High and Holy Day” for Christians around the world. Most of the world today has at least a limited understanding who Jesus Christ is. Some religions have included Him in their list of prophets. Some even acknowledge that He is a god. Many notable people have commented on Jesus’ place as the most famous, important, and significant person in history: “I am an historian, I am not…
