Stephen Davey: How I Preach

Stephen Davey: And this is How I Preach

[It’s an honor to have Stephen Davey, Senior Pastor of Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, North Carolina, featured on How I Preach.

You can also hear him on his radio program, Wisdom for the Heart, heard around the world in over 300 radio

Genesis 2:4−3:24

Man is to live in dependence upon the Creator, but the assertion of human independence from God—the root cause of sin—has devastating consequences.

This section commences with a refocus upon the creation of mankind—created to be dependent upon God (2:7), with God providing everything for its needs, for its existence and for its sustenance.

Says Ivan Phillips, president of Paradise Funeral Chapel, in Saginaw, Michigan:

Scientists from the University of Washington, University of Arizona, and University of North Carolina have established the moral effects of caffeine! Yup, that’s what we need. More coffee. And we can live happily ever after.
