The Idol of Busyness

The bible has a lot to say about the virtue of working hard and not being lazy but for many of us these days the opposite is actually a bigger issue.  Many struggle through life, trying harder and harder to do bigger and better things, but what for?  In this interesting sermon, Greg Pratt takes us through the steps that turn a good thing, into an idol… and how to get out of that trap.

 

The Judgement of the Righteous… Powerful sermon and Testimony

People are often incredibly afraid of the concept of judgement, for this reason the investigative judgment starting in 1844 is not a particularly popular doctrine in the SDA church.  In this powerful sermon, King Tshuma shows us clearly how judgement is not something to fear, but to crave.  This sermon also finishes with a moving testimony about how King was forced to live through the death of his entire tribe, and how he dealt with that.

Mark Turner – How to Have Great Faith (Church Authority)

Often when looking at the extreme of church authority that was the catholic church through the dark ages, we take a view that “therefore we should submit to no one”.  What is a correct understanding of this, and how can we avoid taking either extreme of blindly trusting, or blindly despising all church authority.  Very good sermon.

Road to Sinai – Part 1: The Crossing Site

This is the first in a series we are working on with Ross Patterson to bring a clear understanding of where the Isralletes crossed the red sea, and where they traveled to get to Mt Sinai.
In this 15 minute episode we cover a simple explanation of where the crossing site is, with all new footage from the region.

This series is a work in progress, and many interviews will be added at www.roadtosinai.com as they are completed.  Stay subscribed to www.youtube.com/jumanous for notifications of new videos.

Musical Memory Verses

If you are anything like me, you find it difficult to remember bible texts word for word… yet you have no issue remembering an annoying pop song you heard once at the shops.  Well… no we aren’t putting the bible to annoy pop songs… but the point remains: music makes words stick better in your mind.  Leah and I have been making up musical memory verses for our kids for many years, and people have often been amazed at how easy our little tunes made the bible to learn… so much so, that we have had many requests for CDs.  I’m personally a digital kinda guy, so rather than mess around with CDs, I thought we could all do what we do best: make youtube videos!  So here is the results of this, our musical memory verse channel.
We aim to have at least a new memory verse every week… there are 13 available at the time of writing.  So if you find these helpful, please share them with your friends so we can all learn God’s word together! (Anyone doing the My Bible First sabbath school, we will generally record the weeks memory verse and put it up there during the week).  Enjoy 🙂
