" Be Ye Thankful "
  Sonny Pyles

photos/2-142957921.jpg In this short clip Sonny Pyles looks at historian Arnold Toynbee's reasons for civilized society's failures. Pyles is describing modern day America and its demise as a nation because we are a "people who have no experience of being thankful." This sermon was delivered at Black Rock Church in Butler Maryland in the early 1990's. How true are these words today.

" The Resurrection "
  Roy McIntyre

photos/489654647.JPG Elder Roy McIntyre preaches on the doctrine of the resurrection. He had a wonderful gift to preach. He was pastor of Goose Creek church in Markam, Virginia and on occasion was able to visit the churches in Maryland as he makes comment in his preliminaries.

This sermon is given to the subject of the resurrection from the book of Acts 24:14-15 and 1 Cor. chapter 15. It is a passionate and positive affirmation to his belief in the bodily resurrection through the power of God. You can tell he was motivated by two things in this sermon, the fact that the word of God is true and God is able, and secondly, his disturbance that some he personally knew did not believe in this foundational Bible doctrine.

In this sermon he also underscores that the gospel will not raise us, but God. He says the gospel manifest what God will do for us and that the power of the gospel is for this time world.

Elder McIntyre loved this truth, most likely for another reason. He was plagued with a bad heart and knew his time on earth was short. His spiritual and new heart however was full of love and care for the people of God. He passed away not long after this sermon was preached on April 3, 1995.

" Be Ye Holy, 1 Pet 1:15, at CINN CH, 1988 "
  Samuel Bryant


It was an afternoon sermon however the preaching was lively and the crowd was attentive. The text –1 Peter 1:15-16, the subject – “Be Ye Holy”.

Here is another proof that the Gospel messages are timeless truths. Brother Bryant uses the text as did Peter, to admonish, encourage and teach the Lord’s people the practical applications of the holiness of God.

He begins with confronting a popular notion that God’s children are perfect and never suffer complete apostasy, and therefore would never need to be admonished to be holy. He elaborates on this particular subject which reinforces again why Primitive Baptist are not Calvinists. Many have heard Primitive Baptists are hyper Calvinists which is an unfounded label. This sermon may help you better understand what Primitive Baptists believe the Scriptures to teach.

The sermon marks a variety of reasons why we need to be holy; because it is written, because our God is holy, because our heavenly Father is a compassionate judge of His people…and several other reasons. Please note the references to the popular movie of that day, ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ as Brother Bryant warns us against Hollywood’s influence in our lives. You will like the illustrations of the TV and the closet and the note about older ministers; we don’t retire them, we just retread them and put them back on the road!

Finally, a charge is given to the young people not to lend their bodies over to the devil and this world for the gratification of the lust of the flesh.

It’s a great sermon, for which we are thankful. Again we must say, this site is not to elevate any preacher, but to make the opportunity of getting the preached word out and available.

When we say ‘great sermon’ we mean that the message was clear use of the Scripture and presented in a spirit-filled manner for the edification of the believer and unto the glory of God.

And so was born Thanksgiving Day, that little dauntless band,

Beset by deadly perils in a wild and alien land,

With hearts that held no fear of death, with stern, unbending wills,

And faith as firmly founded as the grim New England hills,

Though pitiful the yield that sprang from that unfruitful sod,

Remembered in their harvest time the goodly grace of God.

God grant us grace to look on this, our glorious native land,

As but another princely gift from His almighty hand.

May we prove worthy of His trust and keep it every shore,

Protested from the murderous hordes that bear the torch of war,

And be the future bright or dark, God grant we never may

Forget the reverent spirit of that first Thanksgiving Day.
