Welcome to Our Church

At the Morningside Church of Christ, we do not claim to have all the answers or be able to provide everything your soul is longing for. But we are followers of the One who does claim to be “The Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6). Jesus does not claim to offer you an easy life. But He does say that when your life is lived in Him and through Him that it will be the most fulfilling life possible.

Prepare to Meet Your God

God never intended to deceive man Motivated by MercyTelling us that a meeting is inevitable.Every person. Preparations must be made Amos 4:12 12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel;Because I will do this to you,Prepare to meet your God, O Israel.” The reactions of the MANY… •Many do not trust.•Many mock that warning.•Many simply “brush it off.”•Many procrastinate.•Many have false concepts about God.•Many believe that there will never be a meeting between us and God.•Many even believe that there is…

The Resurrection

The message of the resurrection⦁ It is the event that gives power to salvation.⦁ “By which also you are saved”⦁ Saving faith rests on this fact. You can oppose it, but you can’t ignore it!⦁ No fence-sitting⦁ No one stays neutral⦁ Either it’s a lie⦁ Or it’s the fact of history that marks the love of God among us. 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 The Fact of Christ’s Resurrection 15 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which…

What if I think you’re crazy and you think I’m evil?

To take the vaccine or not take the vaccine/ •I’m not aware of any other reasonable objections to the vaccines other than their association with these fetal cell lines. •Given the facts, here are two reasonable responses that Christians could take. •Those two responses seem far apart, but I want to suggest that this is not unusual when dealing with controversies like this. In fact, we saw something very similar in New Testament times… 1 Corinthians 8 8 Now concerning things sacrificed…

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow – Part 3

The problem with TOMORROW-LAND: The one that too much time is spent in today. It doesn’t Exist Real people do not live there. Real things do not happen there. But, there are… TOMORROW-LAND PEOPLE – everywhere around us TODAY. Proverbs 27:1 27 Do not boast about tomorrow,For you do not know what a day may bring forth.

Truth and Lies.#4 “Blood-soaked Truth Diluted.”

Mel Gibson’s movie, Passion of the Christ, is not for the fainthearted. No serious Gospel reader will feel that the film overplays the torturous acts inflicted upon Jesus. It exposes those who present the crucifixion in terms of a TV melodrama as misrepresenting its intended impact.Offering a Gift-wrapped Gospel is cruel. The Good News is that the Son of God absorbed the eternal pain and death that we were destined for in a devil’s hell. There is nothing pretty about…

Truth and Lies.#3 “Liars and Thieves—Inseparable Siamese Twins.”

After 34 years, it almost sounds like a comedy sketch: The Corporate Precious Metals trader fleeing to Fiji to escape justice, while his girlfriend stayed behind to defend his integrity on TVNZ News. His deliberate theft of millions upon millions of dollars from precious metal investors (including my $1000 in silver), was counted as nothing in the end. The NZ government put him, and most of the 1987 Financial Market Crash in the ‘Too-hard basket’ and moved on. His deception…

Truth and Lies.#2 “Truth overcomes Denominationalism.”

The idea that you can chose the church of your liking is a popular one.Even in the Lord’s church there are some who speak of denominations as if they are a legitimate extension of God’s Kingdom. They are not! It amazes me when some of these same brethren become incredulous when members leave their congregation and go off to join those denominations. What do they expect?If the congregation that you are worshipping with is not “The Lord’s Church” you have…

Truth and Lies.#1 “You surely shall not die.”

Unbelievers dismiss ‘The Garden of Eden’ as a myth. Even some Christians prefer to doubt its historicity. After all, acceptance of the Fall of Man is acceptance of its direct impact upon one’s eternal destination. But despite their naive protestations, these ‘Christian’ sceptics will suffer the same fate as their unbelieving mentors. They will not escape the consequences of the law of sin and death.Our first parents knew that death would be their punishment for disobedience.So, with these five infamous…

Sunday Bulletin

Bulletin 01-03-2020

We all get caught up in the process of daily living, and it’s easy to be distracted from what is important. There are so many things going on around us and many of them involve us. We have to make time for God. David was a great example of someone who made quality time to spend alone with God. So many of the Psalms are heart-warming because they are personal and because they are praises to God. David didn’t pen…

Bulletin 02-02-2020

The Bible is Not “Just a Book” Can we live without hope? The Bible, which speaks of good news, is a collection or writings that were written over a period of 1,500 years. Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible (starting with Genesis), and John wrote the last (Revelation) in AD 96. Throughout the Bible a unique thread of hope is interwoven – Jesus was the promised hope of the Old Testament, He came to earth and died…
