In Matthew 16, Jesus uses a well-known metaphor to help his disciples understand the power of sin, even though it may not be as familiar to us today.  The metaphor is leaven.  In this sermon, Pastor Whaley examines how leaven works to understand its usage as a metaphor for the spiritual life.  Leaven can corrupt the good, or it can infiltrate the evil, but either way, it's potency is thorough.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, January 25, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

In the final installment of our Misremembering the Bible series, Pastor Whaley examines the axiom "to thine own self be true."  Far from actually being in the Bible, this expression is antithetical to the teaching of Christ found in Matthew 16:24-26.  There, Jesus reminds us that true life is not found in being true to ourselves, but in denying ourselves for His sake.  This message was preached on Sunday, November 9, 2014.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
