Meet the Authors

A Little about Us

SGM’s primary goal is to present relevant articles and teachings based on the Word of God.  Our intent is to promote positive living based on Titus 2:11-12.  “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age…”

    • Thank you, my friend. I enjoy very much how and what you write. Yes, we might not always agree with each other, but hey, that just makes the world a bit more interesting.

        That has been hard for me to learn, the not agreeing part. My particular denomination, The American Baptist Association(Missionary Baptists) is very, very, very doctrinally oriented. And we tend not to be very tolerant of deviations. But I am learning to understand that we can disagree on some things and nobody is a heretic. Does that make sense?

  5. Believe it or not, I have roots in the Missionary Baptist Church. That is where I picked up some of my apologetics indoctrination. I thought my former pastor was going to stroke out when I told him I was visiting a non-denominational church. When I walked into the ND church I was immediately slammed by a tangible and undeniable peace. I had read about being in the presence of God, but had never experienced His presence in a way that literally made me forget all time. After that experience, I yearned for more. Going back to my MB church, I saw the same sad faces and heard the same stale salvation message preached to a group that had not seen a new face in years. My pastor was very up on the current arguments and preached a message of love, but I could tell he had no clue about the person of the Holy Spirit. He was actually the first, in a round-a-bout way, to lump me into a group of “heretics.” Actually he called the church I attend a cult. Ahhhh, but I know his tune would change if ever he saw blind eyes see again or the dead raised to life. He just needs a God experience. So yes, your comment makes complete sense. Have a good day, my friend.

  7. Thought I’d come by and click the follow button. Love your quote from Rick Warren and I’m in 100% agreement. You can retire from the pulpit, but never from service, the true ministry!!! God ALWAYS makes a way for us to be used if we are truly willing!! God bless, brother, will be back at a later time!!

  11. I had no idea you used multiple authors on this site. I must not be very observant.
