Why Did I Create This Site?
Purpose Of Website
Let me just start off by admitting that this site isn't entirely for you. Over the years, I've found that having a creative outlet - such as writing or designing - is surprisingly therapeutic for me. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and ideas, along with the many tools I've found helpful to me in my own personal ministry. My hope is that you also may find them enlightening, useful, or at the very least, entertaining! Please enjoy the site and all it has to offer! Sincerely, Evan Bartholomew

Restoration

Restoration Study by Evanbartholomew on Mixcloud Restoration Introduction: Revelation 2:4-5 To forsake means to desert or abandon. ( Matthew 27:46 ) Remember the height from which you've fallen. What was your baptism like? Why did you get baptized? Reasons For Losing Your First Love: I Timothy 1:5-6 Impure Heart (Motives) Proverbs 13:12 Disappointments or unfulfilled expectations can make our hearts sick. Spiritual sickness is a state of depression, discouragement, or apathy. I Corinthians 11:23-30 Purpose of communion is to focus our hope on Jesus. Some in the church had become weak, sick , and some had fallen asleep. Spiritual sickness is overcome by focusing on Jesus. ( Hebrews 12:2-3 ) What were some disappointments or unfulfilled expectations you had as a disciple? Seared Conscience Ephesians 5:8-14 To be in the light is to be saved, and to be in the darkness is to be lost. ( I Peter 2:9-10 ) Commanded to expose our “dark” deeds ...

Muslim Study

Jehovah or Allah by Evanbartholomew on Mixcloud Jehovah or Allah Key Facts About Islam Key Scriptures From The Qur'an Introduction: Sura 59:23-24 – Muslim Claim There is no god but Allah. Sovereign, Holy, Peace-Giver, Faith-Giver, Overseer, Almighty, etc... Shahadah: “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His messenger.” Isaiah 40:28-31 – Christian Claim The God of the Bible (Jehovah) is the Lord everlasting. Everlasting God, Creator of the ends of the earth, etc... There are no other gods besides Jehovah. ( Ephesians 4:6 ) Which claim is valid? The Bible or The Qur'an: Ephesians 4:4-6 Many commonalities exist between Islam and Christianity. Believe in one God, one faith, a Word of God, Heaven and Hell, Jesus, etc... These commonalities are not a coincidence. Sura 3:3-4 ; 29:46-47 ; 40:53 Muhammad believed in the Bible. The Qur'an teaches that the Torah & the Gospel are from God (Allah). Most Muslim's say that the Bible has ...

Saved By Faith Study

Saved By Faith by Evanbartholomew on Mixcloud Saved By Faith Purpose: This study was created to address a very destructive teaching that has become more and more popular in recent years. That is, that one must have faith, repent and live like a disciple, and then be baptized; but believe they are saved by faith (or, at the point of faith) before their baptism, and only get baptized because the Bible says to. Although it would seem logical that one can't repent before fully obeying God – which would include baptism – more teaching is often needed to convince those who are usually genuinely trying to live like disciples, but are misguided. Introduction: Matthew 3:13-17 Jesus didn't need to be baptized. Baptism is for the forgiveness of sin. ( Acts 2:38 ) Jesus had no sin. ( II Corinthians 5:21 ) To set an example: “It is proper for US to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Righteousness means one is morally right or just ...

Unbelief Study

Unbelief by Evanbartholomew on Mixcloud Unbelief Introduction: Hebrews 11:1, 6 Definition of Faith: “...sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do NOT see.” There are many things people believe in but haven't seen. (China, the wind, center of the earth, gravity, etc...) Everyone has capacity for faith. Some choose not to place faith in God. Reasons for Unbelief: “ I Don't Know Enough” Acts 17:22-28 “ To An Unknown God.” Didn't know who they were worshipping. Characteristics of God: Created the World. (v. 24) Is not confined to man-made things. (v. 24) Not served by human hands. (v. 25) Determined times and places for each person. (v. 26) God's desire is for you to seek Him and find a relationship with Him. (v. 27) Choosing The Created Over The Creator Romans 1:20-25 Don't see God, but we can see what He's made. The universe reveals God's existence. ( Psalm 19:1-4a ) Men chose to reject God because they loved the wor ...

Repentance Study

Repentance by Evanbartholomew on Mixcloud Repentance Matthew 7:13-14 Only two roads people can be on: Wide or Narrow. No exceptions. Only one road leads to life. Very few people find the road that leads to life. Luke 13:1-9 The two options we have in life are to repent or to perish. God gives each person a “window of opportunity”. ( II Peter 3:9 ) We are the unfruitful fig tree before we repent. He puts people in our lives to “dig around” and “fertilize” us with His Word. Matthew 5:29-30 Repentance must be radical, not gradual. Must be willing to “cut off” things in our lives to keep us from sinning. Relationships ( I Corinthians 15:33 – “Bad company corrupts good character.”) Commitments ( Matthew 6:33 – “Seek first His Kingdom.”) Habits ( Luke 9:23 – “Deny” yourself.) I Timothy 4:16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. To save ourselves and our hearers. Repentance has to occur in life and doctrine ...
