Sermon: You can’t live in a Tent and a Mansion Too

Sermon: You can’t live in a tent and a mansion too


I was just a preschooler, barely old enough to remember anything, so my memories of that old tent are like small snapshots in my mind. But a few of those snapshots stand out vividly. I particularly remember my fascination with the hole in the top of the tent and how the rain would drip through and puddle on the dirt floor.

Our old iron bed was strategically positioned so as to avoid the dripping rain. I remember too how the legs of that old bed bored their way into the ground of that dirt floor. The canvas flap that served as a door was tied back to allow entrance and exit from the tent. Though we were only yards away from a stagnant swamp, I don’t remember the mosquitoes which must have had a field day with us.

The Titanic: God didn’t sink it!

It is quite common to come across Christians who proudly assert that the sinking of the Titanic was a deliberate act of God. Their claim stems from the fact that just days before its maiden voyage, an employee of the White Star Line, the company that built the Titanic, arrogantly declared that not even God Himself could sink the ship. Additionally, they argue that the name “Titanic” is derived from the term “Titan,” which refers to giants born of gods in Greek mythology, and therefore consider it blasphemous. Surprisingly, even seasoned preachers and pastors with years of ministry experience can be found passionately proclaiming this belief from rooftops. However, I strongly disagree with this viewpoint because it contradicts the teachings found in God’s Word and distorts His true character. Allow me to elaborate on the reasons for my argument.
