The Sermons and Musings of a pastor who just wants to be obedient to God’s Word and call!
This blog is primarily a platform to share my sermons and speaking notes, as many people have been asking me for these and I found a bit of time to comply…. Here they are, and as time gives me, I will be posting more. A “caveat,” these are rough drafts and notes, these are my notes that were meant for my dyslexic eyes and thus, not polished and edited works. So, if you want “polished” see our ministry sites for what you need, and use the search functions…
It is my endeavor to be an honest exegete and Bible teacher and not read in what I want the Bible to say or what others have said; rather learn and teach what God actually has to say to us today. From His timeless true-Truths…not trends or desires!
Who am I, a disciple and nephew of Frances Schaffer, Author, the Doctor, Hey Pastor, the Reverend, Missionary, Theologian, Researcher, Cat Herder and most important, Husband and “Dada” Richard Joseph Krejcir.
Our latest newsletter, what are the Krejcir’s up too?
One of the great tragedies of the church today is “bad teaching,” not just false teaching form the TV preacher crowd, but sloppy teaching and eisegesis from the Conservative and Evangelical even Reformed pulpits. That fewer and fewer pastors are using and reading the Bible. Fewer and fewer Christians are living the life of a disciple of Jesus Christ than ever before. As Christians living in America today, we tend to be more concerned with who is coming to our church—and how many are coming—and less concerned with making disciples, which we are called first and foremost to do.
The Problem of Eisegesis
I believe that the lack of Bible study and Bible knowledge is one of the root causes of the problems that most Christians face, because without this knowledge, we are unable to make healthy and wise decisions. It is also one of the root problems that our churches face. Our churches are riddled with conflict and strife thereby pushing people away when we are called to be a light in darkness, salt to a flavorless world, and a haven of rest. Yet, we choose to ignore our call and rather place our focus upon our selfish needs and quests, with “sermonettes for Christianettes” when it needs to be upon the foot of the cross, who Christ is, and what He did for us as revealed in His Word.
