Truth from Arkansas! Sunday sermon series, #39

It’s Two-fer-Tuesday, my friends, which means two new sermons from the brethren down in Arkansas.

First, we have Pastor Roger Copeland of Northern Hills Baptist Church in Texarkana, preaching from 2 Kings 20:1-11 about the role of fathers in a sermon titled, “Set Your House in Order.”

Disclaimer: At the 39:00 mark, Pastor Copeland makes a favorable reference to St. Francis of Assisi. This is very disturbing. In two of his previous sermons that I have posted, Pastor Copeland pointed to Catholic apologist, G.K. Chesterton (#7, 11/26/19), and to a student at Mount St. Joseph Catholic University in Cincinnati (#34, 6/2/20) as exemplary Christians. And now we have “saint” Francis of Assisi being reverenced in a Sunday morning sermon from a Baptist preacher! This is a disturbing error by a pastor who should know better, but such is the confused state of the evangelical church these days.

Moving on, we next have Pastor Cody Andrews of Holly Springs Missionary Baptist Church in Star City preaching on Acts 12:7 and “The Key.”

      1. It’s so disappointing to hear a fundamentalist Baptist pastor do something like favorably reference St. Francis of Assisi. What is going on? I seriously wonder what goes through a pastor’s head when they’re preparing a sermon and they make the decision to add a favorable reference to a popular RC saint or to Mother Teresa?

      1. I’m going to guess that 30-minute sermons are a concession to Warren-Drucker church-growth marketing principles and also the long pre-sermon concerts and light shows at many mega-churches, but I don’t know what the excuse is with our Arkansas pastors? Maybe there’s some real boisterous preschoolers in the kids’ classes and the message to the pastor is “keep it short.” I’ve actually witnessed that.
