Paul’s Letter to the Romans



A good toe-nail is not an unsuccessful attempt at a brain: and if it were conscious it would delight in being simply a good toe-nail.

Palmer St. Podcast: Fellow Workers for the Truth

We might imagine we have to be very special people to be used in some significant way by the Almighty. If we think so we are mistaken. In this very personal letter we know as 3 John, the elderly apostle reveals that it is a very simple thing to become a fellow worker for the truth.

(And by the way, at the end there is a song performed by two Amish sisters from Northern Indiana who have lately been attending Horizon Central while in Indianapolis.  That alone is worth a listen.)

Palmer St. Podcast: Ephesians 4:1-16

Immaturity can be defined as imperfection, greenness, unpreparedness, inexperience, childishness or ineptitude.  In this section, Paul shows us how a church can grow up – how a church can become mature, ripe and fruitful in the deepest spiritual sense.

Palmer St. Podcast: 1 Corinthians 14

Chuck Smith in his book Charisma Versus Charismania begins with a story of the abuse of the gift of tongues that he witnessed as a young man. The church in 1st Century Corinth bore some similarity to the church of Chuck Smith’s 20th Century youth. It seems some of things that made Chuck uneasy made the Apostle Paul uneasy too. Today’s chapter deals with a church’s prioritizing and use of the Holy Spirit’s gifts.
