Great Sermon! This sermon was very informative and made a great deal of sense in its application for the contemporary church. I heartily recommend it and also recommend that notes and bible references be made because there's a lot here to be remembered.
12 hours ago you only say that writes: s c wrote: "Black" church objecting to the PCUSA? Isn't that, in some ways, like the pot calling the kettle black? Christians need no adjectives in reference to their temporal earthly bodies. How racist would a "white" church sound? Newsflash: All God's children used to be slaves to sin but are free in Him! because you are white, if you were black you would understand. Do yourself a favor, don't respond it will just be viewed as a racist reply. ---So you believe we NEED to differentiate churches based upon skin color?
if there was ever a time to talk about this it would be now. Supreme Court ready to make their "ruling" this summer. In one swift blow they could make it illegal for all 501c3 corporations to engage in their non profit business without recognizing this abomination.
The spiritual battle is on two fronts. One is the societal dictates that either stand in a protective manner towards the younger generations and the continuance of society (if they all go "gay" they will be ruled by islm), and the second, the taking of the gospel as individuals to those who are still in their sins. Christ is the Son of God and died for the sins of those who would believe in HIm and confess His name, to give them a new nature, born from above.
John Yurich USA wrote: If Catholics who believe that through their Baptism they are now saved don't come to trust in Jesus alone for salvation then they will be spending eternity in Hell.
Well John, so long as they remain in the Catholic fold, they are most unlikely to come to faith alone in Christ alone. This is why it is important to come out of there and hear the gospel of God's grace. But they won't come out, for fear. They have been trapped by a deceptive system of religion, just like the cults rule their adherents by fear.
John Yurich USA wrote: You know that is totally ridiculous. If "Rome" does not perform homosexual marriage ceremonies then it sure would never annul a homosexual marriage as it does not recognize homosexual marriage.
I think Mily Cyrus (what a last name) should be forced to do a concert for those she disagrees with. She should start in Indian. And if she complains, she should be labeled as Idea Biased and hounded by social media till she is forced to resign her profession.
Remember; you cannot have an opinion (or express it)unless it lines up with what the masses on social media believe, at the present moment.
Thank you "Mourner." You have made Philemon 7 a reality. Just to have your personal and a specific response meant so much. Sometimes we find that even among those we fello there is no one who shares your perspective, or Biblical view. But your posting did my soul well. Isaiah 59: Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: He has heard. Thank you. God is great to bless you.
Good Christian Sabbath or Lord's Day; Dorcas and Shane. Psalm 92
1 Cor.3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
Isn't that where this step of apostasy began? True Presbyterianism cannot be called a denomination. Neither can it claim to be the true body of Christ in the USA. Envy, and strife are works of the flesh and the beginning of the end we see which is a glaring departure for the Scriptures of truth.
All schismatic bodies who make claim to be the Church must prove it from the Charter which is the Word of God. Who was warning them of their envy, strife and all their other downward steps?
James 4:5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
Jim Lincoln wrote: They are always going to have the option of abortion, one way or another. This is why the continuance of Obamacare is so important excerpt from, (What Reduces Abortion Rates?) Free prenatal care and paying for the birthing of babies would greatly help reduce abortion rates. For a variety of reasons women are going to have abortions, there are more abortions per capita in Catholic Mass. than there are in Protestant Miss. So, what do I keep saying?The Inadequacy of Moralism.
It won't apply here either, for the keep saying of it.
You don't even see how little sense it makes to say:
We always are going to have the option of abortion, therefore we should continue obamacare.
Making the people pay for evil in the false hope that other evil will diminish is quite ridiculous, as well as unchristian. Women who abort don't do so because they can't afford babies, so your prenatal care nonsense is just that. Come out from among the corrupt, Jim.

I know who created this, and you'll find no post of mine in support of it. Like I said before, we have to be able to distinguish between conservative and neo. Let liberals and neoscons, (who I referred to earlier as lib wannabees) do the generalizing, that shouldn't be for us.
Great Sermon! I was amazed at what Charles Bonadies gleaned from Habakkuk, and it is only the first message. I would walk a mile to hear preaching like this: Sound, Biblical and Inspiring. What I heard actually made me feel ashamed at what I did not get from my own study of Habakkuk. I will be listening to all 6 of these messages!
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report....Hebrews 11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
