Enlightening Sermon! This sermon touches on some common problems Christians have throughout life, such as doubt of salvation, giving in to old ways of life, being like "babes" and not mature in knowing the Holy Scriptures. Brother Ronnie brings out many weaknesses we have when doing battle with Satan and demonic forces. Many great areas we should acknowledge and grow in them.
you apparently wrote: have not read the 51st Psalm. I Cor. 10:6Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did. 7Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, ‚ÄúThe people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.‚ÄĚ 8We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day..........
Silly billy. It is God's law that we learn what sin is and what not to do. ----- NOT sin itself. Please read the Bible eg Romans 7.
7 "What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet."
BTW Did you know that ....... 1Jn 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."
I think "A sister" has a good point. Frankly, Christians should be held to higher standard than the world and when we grossly sin it is a big deal! We are hypocritical if we close ranks on a fellow believer who has broken the law or been part of a cover-up by his parents, but we jump unmercifully on unbelievers who sin and break the law.
Faith is the gift of God and God only gives this grace to HIS elect. Truth separates the elect from the unsaved such as the RCC. The Reformation was a return to the Scriptures and Bible doctrines. Thus God removed HIS church from the idolatrous heretics. Satan's subsequent works were to confound the Protestants by dividing them into denominations. But God continues to call HIS elect and make them Holy as HE is holy thus separated unto God. Ecumenism is the sinners solution to the unbiblical believe that all denominations should be one, but this is simply compromise between nominal Christians. God does and will separate HIS church from the world even the ecclesiastical world. As Jesus states; "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
"And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine."
After awhile some of us will not sit on our hands, or suffer the court system for we will either biblically , flee to another city or town , but never forget that defending the gospel is as important as defending your family and brethren . Always time too be wise as foxes
John Yurich USA wrote: So I am saved according to the Bible because the Bible states that salvation comes by putting ones trust entirely in Jesus alone for salvation.
And hereby we do know that we know him, if we trust in him alone for salvation (1 John 2:3)
The above statement is a lie. Here's what scripture actually declares: And hereby do we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
The lawless doctrines of men and devils have produced a reprobated generation of clueless, hellbound people who are absolutely convinced they can participate in every imaginable wickedness and still go to heaven, because the have been told ... THEY ONLY HAVE TO TRUST IN JESUS ALONE FOR SALVATION! I know because I've spoken to them and they are unreachable. If anyone out there is not yet seared beyond hope of redemption please visit the channel holdingfirmly on youtube before it is too late. God help us.
I really need to do a blog post on this whole sordid matter... Anyway, here's a link to an article at CP which really nails it for me regarding Josh Duggar's apology which I found to be frightfully lacking in substance:
Rome is using it's same old tried and true tactics through professing Christendom. "Can't we all just get along"? The grand wizard of the cult is donning his evangelical disguise which has proven so successful that many of the well-known hirelings are falling all over themselves to bow the knee to Baal and kiss him.
Outstanding Sermon! This sermon gives the highlights of what it means to be in Spiritual Warfare for Christians. As he points out that since the 1960s, our culture has become more strongly opposed to the principles of Holy Scripture, and even our churches have become weaker in proclaiming the Gospel. There are excellent points that we as Christians should be more familiar with and have answers to the problems Satan creates. I see the secular answers being more readily accepted without any consideration of the Holy Bible. We are truly in dangerous waters for our nation, and worldwide.
Great Sermon! Once more, Pastor Gary, a message that feeds God's sheep with the truth. How blessed we are.
We also were blessed in the past by Pastor Henry Mahan's sermons.
Thank you for your faithfulness in bringing the truth of God.
Repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
God strengthen you in your ministry.
Thanks,Unprofitable but in order for us to help our brother remove the speck from his eye,we must first judge it to be something which must be removed in the first place. I don't think that's tantamount to self-righteousness. If we love God,we will want ourselves and our brothers and sisters to put away that which is unwholesome and destructive. But for the grace of God,go I. I would like to see Christians to be consistently zealous when it comes to protesting sexual sin-whatever its form. I can easily understand the homosexual agenda as Judgment on us all (myself included). Probably most all of us have contributed to the decadent society in which we find ourselves today. It's when we don't take heed and repent that we find ourselves ineffective. God cannot be pleased with this country and He has been ever so patient.
Ultimately what Satan is doing with this one is seeking to discredit the Bible. This will subsequently nullify the church and destroy the witness of truth. But the real protagonist in this play is the Liberal church, eg: Anglican, Episcopalian, Methodist, PCUSA, and other Liberals. The Liberal church has already ditched the Bible (it is mythology) so to them it is irrelevant. One of their heretical fictions is that man is and can progress to a 'more' godly state.
""In liberal Christian teaching, which is not Christian at all, man‚Äôs reason is stressed and is treated as the final authority. Liberal theologians seek to reconcile Christianity with secular science and modern thinking. In doing so, they treat science as all-knowing and the Bible as fable-laden and false. Genesis‚Äô early chapters are reduced to poetry or fantasy, having a message, but not to be taken literally (in spite of Jesus‚Äô having spoken of those early chapters in literal terms). Mankind is not seen as totally depraved, and thus liberal theologians have an optimistic view of the future of mankind.""

"Hate speech" stems from the bible-myth according to Liberals. These evil reprobates are the real enemy.
Rubio,seemingly,has Catholic ties.His name and birthplace kind of suggests that. We can pray that he would hear God's word rightly divided and praise God that His Word NEVER goes out void! Nor will it be compromised-en vogue or out.
