Jim does this mean all the other nine commandments are for the Jews only? Heb4:9 there remaineth therefore a rest (i.e. Sabbath) to the people of God. 1John5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. The law as a means of righteousness before God is finished, but as a rule of life, faith out of love for God remains. This includes forgoing even our own favourite past times. The Lords day is for resting in Christ not sport. By the way American football is no match for Rugby League.
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: Nowhere in the Old Testament is there any word that the Gentile nations ought to observe the sabbath , or keep the law. It was for the nation Israel. People come presenting supposed truth that will help us be more godly and will stem the tide of decadence around us. These are subtle forms to corrupt the sufficiency of Christ and His work accomplished in our lives.
The WEBible has a version out that has the Apocryphia and thus the Books of Macabbees in it, this is a free Bible in modern English. Some of the electronic Bible programs has it. By the way, Palestinians Attempt to Co-Opt Jewish History
This was an interesting read. It would be best to abstain from the bread and circus idolatry of sports altogether not just on the Lords day but I see his point and am glad he took a stand for it.....like he said don't mess with Americans and their idolatry, I mean sports.
Tears. I dont know what it is about this message but I was crying more then with any other sermon the last years. I wonder.... so may this sermon be a blessing and an encouragment to count not only our days but even the hours. when it was said how many letter spurgeon wrote a week I thought about my minutes wasted with little nonsens day by day.
Powerful Sermon! This message should be heard in all churches while we have much freedom to do so. This is a frightening yet challenging message to all of us who hold the Holy Bible as our life in salvation. Our nation has become more anti- Christ in the past 4 generations than since our nation was founded. I'm afraid the next generation will be almost totally lost. As "born again" children of God, we should be ever closer to the Holy Scriptures while we still have our freedoms..
Great Teaching Sermon! Again, we receive numerous difficult passages and are given clear insight to their meaning. Most people would never open their heart and mind to see what a deeper, more broad understanding is involved in surveying their important parts of Scripture. It has been a blessing to hear these 9 messages. Each one clarified the Holy Bible more.
Another Great Sermon! This presentation on Justification gives us more depth in its understanding as Christians, and it also shows the error of it by non-believers. We have assurance in our salvation, while those others only have "hope" depending upon their works. It's such sadness that they don't have the Gospel for their peace.
Boko Haram Means 'The Bible is forbidden.' Thanks for the reading Bob. This may be of interest:
"So why do Western governments and media pretend that the Nigerian Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, means Western Education is sacrilege? We all know what Halaal means in Arabic: something lawful or permitted, as in Halaal food. Similarly Haram is the Arabic for forbidden. Boko is the Arabic for the Book, always understood in the Quran to mean, the Bible. Hence the Quran refers to Christians as ‚Äėpeople of the Book‚Äô. So anyone understanding Arabic and Islam would understand the etymology of Boko Haram to mean The Bible is forbidden. There can be no other explanation."
