Exalting God’s Glory. Explaining God’s Truth.

A Note From Pastor Tom

I am grateful you are visiting The Word Unleashed. It is a joy to serve as Pastor-Teacher at Countryside Bible Church, where I have the wonderful opportunity to preach God’s Word on Sunday mornings and evenings and to worship alongside people who love Christ and His Word.

Consider partnering with us by subscribing to the ministry and praying for us. I look forward to our partnership, and it is my prayer that the power of God’s Word will be unleashed in your life.

Part 32

The Bible speaks often about work, particularly that God’s people must work hard for His glory. In reality, work is one of the major activities of life, and, as Christians, we need to use that time and our efforts to honor our God and Father. As Christians, we must approach work with a vastly different perspective than that of the unbelieving world.

Part 31

According to Scripture, work is a divine gift and calling that should be embraced and never ignored. In fact, the Bible teaches that work existed before the fall of man and will even exist in the new heaven and new earth. As Christians, we need to understand the theology of work so we can work hard for the glory of Christ and God the Father. 

Part 30

The Bible teaches that the doctrine of hell is not a subject to be ignored but one that needs careful attention and study. And Scripture also teaches that the doctrine of hell is more than just a theological topic—in fact, there are many applications that can be drawn from a careful study of hell.

Part 29

One of the most, if not the most, difficult doctrines in all of Scripture is the doctrine of hell. But, as Christians, we can’t allow its difficulty to deter us from reading and studying all that Scripture has to say about it. And we can’t allow unbiblical ideas or concepts to be substitutes for it. 

Part 28

The Bible teaches that on an appointed day in the future, Jesus Christ will return to the earth to establish a kingdom and rule with His people. In light of that reality, the Bible calls all Christians to live in a constant state of readiness, to keep watching and waiting for Christ to return while we carry out the New Testament duties He’s assigned to every Christian and every local church.

Part 27

It is common in Christian circles today to passively acknowledge the reality of Jesus’ second coming. If you examine the sermons of today’s contemporary church, if you look at the books that are published, and if you listen to the prayers that are prayed, you will find that the church has largely forgotten the reality of the second coming.

Part 26

The New Testament teaches that Christians are a part of a local church and make it their priority—that is the overwhelming pattern. So once Christians have found a biblical church, what are they to do there? The Bible teaches that Christians are to be engaged in corporate worship, serving, and fellowship. 

Part 25

Sadly, church attendance, church membership, and even church involvement have largely been forgotten in today’s world. In fact, many look at Christ’s church in hopes of getting something out of it rather than looking to serve and worship Christ with other brothers and sisters in Christ.

Part 24

What are the biblical arguments for expository preaching? The Bible is clear both in the Old and New Testaments that preaching and teaching God’s words verse-by-verse through books of the Bible is foundational and the pattern of God’s people. Unfortunately, this type of preaching has been abandoned by the church and substituted with inferior models and patterns.

Part 23

What is expository preaching and should all preachers commit to this kind of approach? Sadly, topical and thematical sermons dominate the pulpit today. Although there is a place for that type of approach, expository preaching, however, is the biblical way. The truth is, expository preaching has been foundational in the life of the church for centuries, which is why it needs to dominate our pulpits today.

“For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord…”

–2 Corinthians 4:5

What Pastors are Saying about Tom’s Books 

“Tom Pennington puts his finger on a crucial question every preacher must ask himself: ‘Am I preaching my wisdom in an attempt to move people by my power for my success and honor, or am I preaching Christ from the Holy Scriptures while relying on the power of the Spirit to glorify God?’ We as preachers ought to read this book, examine ourselves openly before God, and seek much of the Spirit’s grace to live for the Triune God’s glory, for the maturation of the saints, and for the salvation of the lost.”

–Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“Gresham Machen once said that the two great presuppositions of the gospel are the doctrine of God and the doctrine of man. In this short but helpful book, Tom Pennington presents us with that first presupposition—the doctrine of God.Skillfully and winsomely, Pennington unpacks the God who has revealed himself in history and his word. He is holy, but he is also good—which is great good news for sinners like ourselves. This sermon on God’s name will help you hear the gospel better.”

Jonny Gibson, Associate Professor, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

In this wonderful book, Tom Pennington lifts our eyes to the Lord, to his great and glorious name, to his great and glorious character. Read, meditate, worship, and rejoice!

The Biblical View of Abortion

God’s Heart for Life in the Womb

Book Description

By deciding to make man in His own image, God Himself established the value of human life (Gen. 1:27). That sovereign, immutable decision makes abortion one of the greatest moral and ethical issues of our time. For the Christian, the only question about abortion that matters is: “What does the Bible say?”

Tom Pennington has written The Biblical View of Abortion to expose the corrupt spiritual and cultural foundations of abortion and to build a compelling biblical case against abortion by discovering, explaining, and defending the primary biblical arguments. If you already have a biblical understanding of abortion, Tom’s writing will help further strengthen, encourage, and equip you from the Scripture. But if you don’t yet know or embrace the Bible’s teaching on abortion, may the Holy Spirit use these pages to instruct you from His Word so that God’s view of abortion will become yours.
