Pastor Whaley continues his sermon series entitled Misremembering the Bible by taking a look at the familiar phrase "Cleanliness is Next to Godliness." While the phrase has great usage in the vernacular of the church, it is not found in the Bible. In Mark 7, Jesus shows us that we are defiled from within and are in need of cleansing from without through Him alone. The idea that we can clean ourselves up in order to find more favor with God can lead to a wrong understanding of God and salvation.

Micah Collins fills in for Pastor Whaley this week. Micah takes a look at Lamentations 3 and speaks to us about the nature of lament and hope. Micah highlights that within the Christian life lament and hope should be so unalterably entwined that the former must inevitably turn into the latter. Further, Micah teaches that the hope we must garner and treasure can only be the eternal life bought for us by our Savior Jesus Christ. This sermon was preached on Sunday, September 7, 2014.

Pastor Whaley begins a new sermon series examining some of the often quoted sayings in our culture that are erroneously attributed to the Bible. In this sermon, Greg considers the saying, "God helps those who help themselves," which is not only not in the Bible, but in fact, the Bible says something entirely different. The Bible tells us God helps the helpless. And the man who trusts in himself is like a shrub eking out an existence in a barren land, while the man who trusts in God is like a tree planted by the water. This sermon was preached on Sunday, August 31. This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La. Thank you for listening.
Drawing from the Jesus' words in Mark 12, Pastor Greg brings this sermon series to a close by focusing on the two greatest commandments of loving God and loving each other. In these two commandments, we find "all of the law and the prophets" and all we need to live the kingdom life on earth. This sermon was recorded on Sunday, August 24.

As we move toward the end of our Perfect 10 sermon series, Pastor Greg Whaley takes an in-depth look at the injunction against covetousness found in Exodus 20:17. The Ten Commandments are more than merely a to-do list or an empty moral code. As such, in this sermon we find that covetousness is what happens when we content ourselves with anything less than God Himself. Contentment in God alone is the cure for covetousness.

Brother Frank uses the end of World War I to set the stage for a lesson about he supremacy of mercy.

In this sermon Brother Greg, shows us: the relationship between honesty and integrity, the unique nature of honesty, and how honesty should be lived out in our relationships with each other and God.
This weeks sermon is taken from Exodus 20:15, which tells us about God's disdain for stealing. Pastor Greg Whaley takes Exodus 20:15 and seeks to find the root of the problem, which in this case is integrity, or to be more precise the lack thereof. Listen as Pastor Whaley examines: the scriptures to find out God's intention for this commandment, the true nature of stealing, and how we should live a life of integrity.
