  • Annual meeting is a big deal

    October 22 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    Scripture places high value on fellowship among believers. But wait – I’m not talking about shaking hands in worship or sharing food in the church fellowship hall. Reading the book of Acts, I understand fellowship certainly includes activities around the table and various types of greetings.

  • Our responsibility to vote

    October 8 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    Matthew’s gospel records a very important conversation between Jesus and some Pharisees. They began with a question. “‘Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?’ But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, ‘Why do you test Me, you hypocrites? Show Me the tax money.

  • A crisis of truth in media

    September 24 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 2 comments

    If you attended church as a child, you will likely remember the song, “Be careful little feet where you go... be careful little hands what you do ... be careful little ears what you hear ...” Does that strike a familiar chord? It’s time to pull that song out of the past, dust if off and sing it again, especially the verse, “be careful little ears what you hear.”

  • Is there room for God?

    September 10 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    We often lament that our world is too busy. Whether it is intentional or unintentional, our fast-paced lifestyles frequently push God aside or completely shut Him out of our lives. We are too busy for a quiet time, too busy to read the Bible, too busy to pray or too busy to go to church.

  • A Call to Prayer

    August 14 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    Prayer was clearly a major part of Christ’s life and teachings. As preachers like to point out, it was the only thing the disciples asked Jesus to teach them, according to Luke 11:1. Either His prayer life or the results of His prayers must have made an impression on them.

  • Sin still pays its wages

    July 30 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    The world takes the concept of sin lightly. But God’s Word reveals the truth about the nature of sin. Sadly, every sinner is deluded into thinking that he or she will never be caught. The sinful heart confidently declares, “No one will ever know.

  • Trust the trustees

    July 2 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 4 comments

    Southern Baptists are unique among religious denominations. We don’t work under a hierarchical system of polity. There is no one “at the top” who dictates policy and procedure to local Baptist churches or individuals within those churches.

  • The family, the church and the government

    June 18 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    God has ordained three institutions: the family, the church and the government.   It seems strange that the church is free to talk about the church, and the church is free to talk about the family, but the church is told to keep silent on matters of government.

  • Reformation or Revolution?

    June 5 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 1 comments

    America is in trouble.   Dramatic signs of moral decline dominate the headlines daily. Jobs are scarce and money is tight. Government oversight and red tape is oppressive. The emotional climate of the nation is one of fear and anger. The political mood is more heated than I recall in my lifetime.

  • A model for motherhood

    May 7 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    When God designed motherhood He gave the world one of His most unique creations. No human role elicits as much emotion as that of a mother. It is not surprising that Mother’s Day generates a massive tidal wave of respect and attention toward our moms.

    Opposition to the Christian faith is not new. Jesus was despised for His holy life and for His challenge to the religious status quo. They crucified Him.

  • Do you have a biblical worldview?

    April 9 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR editor | with 1 comments

    Everyone has a worldview. Very few people have a biblical worldview. A worldview has been described as the lense through which one sees everything around him. It is the filter through which one interprets every activity and event he observes and experiences.

  • Opportunity is knocking at our door

    March 26 2012 by K. Allan Blume, BR Editor | with 0 comments

    By definition, an opportunity is limited by time. An opportunity to help a friend is limited to the point in time when your friend has a specific need. An opportunity is a favorable circumstance, a moment in time, an open door to do something that can only be done at that given moment.

    North America needs Jesus! The North American Mission Board (NAMB) says 259 million people in the United States and Canada do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. And most of them do not live in close proximity to a church. So, how will they hear?
