What is Jesus saying to His Church in Idaho Falls along the I-15 Corridor? (1)

Revelation 2:1-7 – This is the Lord’s omniscient, and righteous, and spot-on evaluation of you: “To the angel of the church of Ephesus write, ‘These things says he who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden lampstands: I know your works, your labor, your patience, […]

A history of Baptists and LDS in the I-15 Corridor (post 4)

Taken from The Baptist Home Mission Monthly: “The Gospel for Utah”:  An address delivered at the annual meeting of the society, at Detroit, Mich., May, 1884, by Rev. S. Graves, D.D.  This was the year in which the first Baptist church building was erected in Idaho Falls. When I read the entirety of this address, […]

Some history of the Baptists and Mormons in the I-15 Corridor (post 3)

Taken from The Home Mission Monthly: This is from the Rev. Richard Hartley in Ogden, Utah (around 120 years ago).  . . . much has been  said and written of late concerning the religious condition of Utah, but only by personal contact and observation can we truly appreciate the appalling evils of Mormonism.  Only as […]

Some history of the Baptists and LDS in the I-15 Corridor (post 1)

My Baptist heritage goes back aways . . . at least 200 years.  I have in possession what family members wrote in the 1800s.  Also, I have stacks of The Standard, originals of the Baptist weekly newspaper coming out of Chicago.   It is interesting to read what they wrote about Mormonism.  As a Baptist, my great, great-grandfather attended divinity […]

The Revelation of Jesus Christ – the Christ of the LDS I-15 Corridor

One of our most brilliant Bible scholars in America has published a new book:  Did Jesus Exist? (HarperOne, 2012).  Bart Erhman debunks the idea of a mythical Christ.  Yet rather than write of the Roman Catholic view, conservative-evangelical view, or Mormon view of Jesus or push for a Jesus who is a political revolutionary or […]

The Revelation of Jesus Christ – sensory overload

My 16-year-old son is an adrenalin junkie.  He told me that he and some of his buddies jumped off an 80 foot cliff on Saturday.  This makes my skin tingle.  Just a little bit. But you know what?  That is nothing compared to what I talked about on Sunday and what we are all going […]

The Revelation of Jesus Christ – One Day at a Time

Someone told me that Wilber Smith had 200 commentaries on Revelation in his personal library.  What commentaries on Revelation do you have?  If you don’t want them, would you like to give them to me?  Mail them to me.  One of the sisters in the Berean church family, Anne McCraw, lent to me a commentary, […]
