Why Should Open-Air Preachers Consider Speaking at Nursing Homes? | Brandon Rhea
Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary Blog
by Brandon Rhea
1w ago
For most people nursing homes are places to be avoided. The worst facilities come across as cold, damp, stale, and dreary. The building is not a home but an institution. Germs are pervasive, and the smell of cleaning chemicals ubiquitous. The hallways are filled with people in wheelchairs who may be sleeping, yelling—because they have dementia—or scooting around to find a person with whom to visit. Yes, nursing homes can be unpleasant. Yet, they are filled with gospel opportunities. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there were 15,600 licensed homes in America in 2014 with 1.4 mill ..read more

Antinomianism | Tom Hicks

  What is antinomianism? The word “antinomianism” simply means “against the law.” “Anti” means against, and “nomos” means law. An antinomian is anyone who denies that God’s law is the standard or rule of conduct in the life of the believer. Antinomians don’t believe God’s law has any role except to expose sin and point the believer to Christ for forgiveness and justification. They might say that the Spirit makes believers holy, but the believer doesn’t have anything to do with the law. An extreme form of antinomianism would deny that Christians necessarily experience any process of being ..read more

6 Reasons Why Spurgeon Encouraged Pastors to Open-Air Preach | Brandon Rhea
Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary Blog
by Brandon Rhea

  Charles Spurgeon, who is known as the “Prince of Preachers,” did not confine his ministry to the indoors. He preached outside in Scotland, London, and country fields. He even open-air preached a sermon on the doctrine of election to Methodist miners. Despite Spurgeon’s popularity, this facet of his ministry is not well known. Besides preaching under the heavenly sky, Spurgeon exhorted men to follow his example. In his book, Lectures to My Students, he has two chapters on the subject. The first chronicles a brief history of open-air preaching, from Biblical narratives to his contemp ..read more

My seminary journey began on June 7th, 2020, while I was living in Lawrence, MA. Four months later, Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary offered me full-time employment as the Director of Information Technology and Operations, prompting a move with my family in November of that same year. Upon our move, I was blessed to become a member of Grace Reformed Baptist Church (Owensboro, KY), where I was also received as a pastoral intern. In March 2024, the same congregation called me to serve as one of its deacons. Many have strengthened my hands throughout this journey. May the Lord remember their ..read more

To Preserve a Man from the Pit: God’s Mercy in Ransom | Tom Nettles
Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary Blog
by Austin McCormick

  To Preserve a Man from the Pit God’s Mercy in Ransom   Complaints about pain as undeserved reveals a heart unresponsive to merciful rebuke. (33:19-22). God speaks through man’s pain that rebuke is necessary and if unheeded will bring one finally to perdition.  Physical pain is designed to show spiritual danger. When muscles ache and even bones radiate pain, when food nauseates, and physical symmetry gives way to gauntness, one should well consider that present pain is not even dimensionally related in either quality or quantity to the wrath of eternal divine anger. Man’s sin b ..read more

To Preserve a Man from the Pit: God’s Mercy in Revelation Job 33:1-18   Now, a young man, Elihu, possibly the author of this book, felt compelled to speak (chapter 32). He has held his peace until this final word from Job was done. He has seen Bildad falter and Zophar refuse to continue the engagement (32:15). He has listened to Job’s remarks, which silenced the arguments of the three friends (32:12). Elihu patiently waited for the wisdom of the aged to come forth, but he found only an intellectual captivity to the received ideas of the age, which he saw had been inadequate to satisfy or ..read more

What does Scripture teach us about our Vocations? | Tom Hicks
Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary Blog
by Tom Hicks
2M ago
  In this lesson, we will examine the biblical doctrine of calling or vocation. This doctrine relates to the places and situations where God has called us to work in this world. The Roman Catholic church teaches that only priests and holy orders like monks and nuns have vocations or callings in this world. But the Reformation insisted that all Christians have vocations before the Lord, which they should discharge faithfully. Look at 1 Corinthians 7:17. “Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churche ..read more

  Introduction In another sphere of life, the present author was privileged to sit under the teaching of a well-known veterinary cardiologist, Robert Hamlin. Professor Hamlin was a gifted researcher and clinician with a unique teaching style: case scenarios were laid out in all their gory detail––the relevant and the peripheral––with complexity often followed by confusion! Hamlin would famously break through students’ quiet cogitation with the helpful question, “What bothers you?” The question was really this: “What does not fit the pattern?” “What stands out as strange?” He asked the que ..read more
