Ole Anthony teaches a Morning Bible Study for our community (and anybody else who drops by) at 7:30 a.m. in our dining area called The Lair. Besides being our founding pastor and oldest elder, Ole is also president of our favorite non-profit, Trinity Foundation Inc.
These podcasts reflect the morning meetings– they’re raw and (mostly) unedited. Previous mp3 files of teachings from 2005 through March 2010 are available here for the time being. We are slowly adding descriptions and scripture references to the list. Thanks for your patience.
Just click the link to play the audio file in your browser or right-click on the link to download the file. (In some of the podcasts the volume is too low — that’s our fault, not yours).

Watch Ole reading the sermon “On Passover” by second-century A.D. pastor Melito of Sardis‘ during our 2019 Passover celebration (Click on the Photo, it lasts about an hour):

Genesis 6: 5
Genesis 8: 21 We have to see we are evil
Romans 8: 5 – 8 They that are in the flesh cannot please God. By definition, if we are using our mind, we are an enemy of God, we are “in the flesh.” The only way to fix the situation is death. That’s what “enmity” means.
1 Jn 2: 12 “Young men” have overcome their minds but are not on the mercy seat. Our minds are the wicked one.
The trip from Egypt to the promised land is the trip we make as believers.
The cross always means your death.

Matt 16: 24 We have to be willing to lose the desire to help ourselves in any way. Self interest will always raise its ugly head.
1 Jn 2: 15 If any love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Romans 12: 1 Present your bodies a living sacrifice. Doing nothing to protect yourself.
From God’s standpoint it’s not done until we have completely presented ourselves / abandoned self / lost all self interest
We always try to compromise
The renewing of our mind happens when we no longer have our mind, but the empty mind of Christ.

Ex 20:12 Honor thy Father and Mother that it may be well with thee

And whosoever doesn’t bear his cross…
James 4:1 If we’re a friend of the world, we are an enemy of God
Hate the label.
Give no importance to anything in the world.
1 John 2: 15 – 17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
Time is a barrier to us understanding eternity.
All the apostles sealed the gospel with their blood.
