November 8, 2020: The water, the woman, the worship

This week, Pastor Hodge expounded on John 4:1-26. We see when Jesus left for Galilee, he baptizes more than John. And, he meets the woman at the well. He asks for a drink of water, but talks to the woman about eternal life instead. And he identifies what true worship, really is.

What does this mean today? Listen and find out on our Facebook, Youtube or Archive.org link, here:

November 1, 2020: For God and country

This week, in light of the upcoming general election in just a few days, Pastor Hodge looks at the Biblical role we have in the elections. Many people make the government their God these days, including some Christians. But as we look at Scripture, Jesus is our Lord, King and Savior, and nothing else. We are to be good citizens on the earth; do good and obey the law, do what is right, and pay taxes. We live with faith in Jesus, while we support our citizens and our country.

But, philosophies are being voted for in this election. Pastor Hodge looks at the Biblical role of Capitalism, and our historical record, along with Marxism and Socialism. Are these philosophies Biblical? Listen and find out what the Bible says about all of it!
