Pastor Geoff continues the series on examining the Roman Catholic Church's doctrine on various issues and comparing it with the truth & authority of God's Word.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff examines how the Roman Catholic Church believes that salvation comes through the Church, that Mary is a co-redeemer together with Christ, that humans can merit and contribute to salvation (justification) and that the Catholic faith is inclusive in accepting other faiths/religions (including Muslims).
Pastor Geoff then preaches Acts 4.12 and shows that salvation is found ONLY by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Repent and believe and be saved from God's coming wrath!

"Roman Catholic Doctrine Attacks the Sufficiency of Jesus' Death"
Pastor Geoff teaches part 2 on the Roman Catholic Church Doctrine and shows how the Catholic dogma attacks the very sufficiency of Jesus' once-for-all sacrifice at Calvary -- particularly through the Mass.

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how the psalmist models how to pray and praise as he is 'old and gray.' How can one use the golden years to fulfill the golden opportunity to transmitting biblical truth on to the next generation?

Then, Pastor Geoff exposits Psalm 19 and shows how God has revealed Himself clearly, sufficiency in Scripture, and authoritatively for life.
Embrace the reality that the Bible -- and the Bible alone -- contains all that we need for life and godliness. God has spoken clearly through His Word. Read it, believe it, understand it, and obey it!
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the psalms at the CFBC prayer meetings on Wednesday nights. This psalm models for us how to pray in serious pain. Remarkably, David shows that having a God-centered perspective (='let God be magnified') provides the proper perspective in times of hardship.
True it is that prayer is the medicine for the soul.

"Hermeneutics Part 9: Interpreting Poetry & Figures of Speech"
In this Family Bible Hour message, Pastor Geoff teaches on the specifics of interpreting poetry and figures of speech. They really go hand in hand because so many figures of speech are contained in the poetic sections of Scripture.
Pastor Geoff gives guidelines and some definitions of some of the figures of speech so that we can rightly interpret God's Word.
Pastor Geoff street preaches & continues the exposition through John 8 and shows how Jesus offers a full and lavish forgiveness even to the worst of sinners — an adulteress caught in the very act.
