Helen of the old country welcome from the new again! I'm glad you do read your Bible and realize that Superessionism is wrong q.v., 12 Reasons Why Supersessionism / Replacement Theology Is Not a Biblical Doctrine, a comment from it, "I think we do not attach sufficient importance to the restoration of the Jews. We do not think enough of it. But certainly, if there is anything promised in the Bible it is this."--Charles H. Spurgeon. Ah, I believe written by Dr. Vlach, a heavyweight in theology, people liked his preaching too, maybe Gil Rugh can get him to come back to IHCC?
SteveR, so many of the Jews intermarried with Europeans so? They weren't of an Aryan mindset? Also many of the Jews now in Israel came from Middle East countries -- thanks to the nasty treatment by the Muhammadans To top it all off, why not support an oasis of civilization in the Middle East? Israel's Contributions. So, even an atheist should support Israel.
Jim this is simply amazing BG has a "gospel" where people are supposedly saved with: No Bible needed No Preaching (the Gospel) of Christ needed No Knowledge of the name of Christ needed (to call upon His name) needed either.
Amazing, Amazing theology! Why it sounds so similar to the "special revelations" the special elite "elect few" who have been prostylizing here claim to have. Wow! Imagine that.
Praise God for this sermon! Siblings, if you prayed "God speak to me" and are looking to hear Him, press play. This sermon is overflowing with the anointing of the Holy Spirit of God. I have never read the Scriptural passages discussed in this sermon in this light before, truly, God spoke to us today! Won't you hear what He had to say through His servant Pastor Barry? Grace and peace to you all through Jesus Christ our Lord!
AMZ makes a valid point "...of course they would object to writing "Gay marriage is wrong" on the cake." One cannot expect people who know no better/non Christians to go along with such a statement. And,it was in poor "taste" (not an effective way to expose error) or to draw people to the Truth.
Aha! I knew there was a reason why all those young people were using their smartphones while the sermon was being preached.
And, my oh my, there are so many young people going to church these days with their phones, it is getting hard to get into a pew without feeling crowded!
Thanks YouVersion for helping get young people back into our churches!
Even better: with 7 out of 10 of the world's inhabitants able to read the Bible in their own language on their smartphones, this might even make the Wycliffe Bible Translators obsolete! All we need to do is hire the best translators at the United Nations to translate versions for the other 3 of 10 people. And we won't need to send missionaries, just smartphones with the YouVersion installed!
NEEDFUL MESSAGE I do not support "causes." However, if ever this was a time for protesters to picket the abortion clinics, it would be at Christmas. Of course with gentleness, meekness and in the spirit of love - if they are Christians.
"Alan Gross Released" was 1 headline I saw. Should have been--"3 Cuban Spies Released for Alan Gross" which means we accept Cuba's claim that Alan Gross was a spy. Was he worth 3 other guys? Doesn't sound like a deal to me. I think Obama did this to throw mud in the face of his opponents, just like he did with the relaxation of immigration to allow millions of future Democratic voters to come in. Instead of seeing the 2014 elections as a rejection of his program, he is fighting back, and will do more next year.
RE: Ralph Ovadal's "Heart of the Matter" program, it is not a sermon but commentary on the news, of which there are many here at SA. I have learned much there that other conservative voices in the media will not say, due to them not wanting to offend Catholics.
But I will grant you that Ralph's picture should be next to the word 'sneer' in the dictionary, because it seems like he sneers at his enemies like the Catholic Church.
A Worthwhile Sermon Now this is a message worth repeating throughout the year.
It is also a message that needs to be brought to the attention every person celebrating this day. I wonder if Planned Parenthood supporters realize that the One being celebrated was sought out by Herod; not to celebrate the birth, but to murder.
One of the best Android tablets for the money was only sold by Walmart, by Hisense, the Serio 7 Pro, cheaper than the comparable Nexus 7 by at least a $100 -- and it had more features! Hisense is also PLA (People's Liberation Army) company, it makes few excuses that is a state enterprise. I mention this because you can only buy his tablet refurbished now. I would suggest you read the transcript about Wal-Mart. As I said what I read about the "Peyton Place" Koch brothers, Catholics make good soap-opera and lousy politicians--is that they apparently treat their employees well -- Wal-Mart not so much.
Everyone complains about the plight of the employees of WalMart except the ones who work there. As for groceries, we are getting a super W in the area. Can't wait as the chain that's here has a complete monopoly.

What a sad commentary for modern Christianity. A sermon based solely on contemporary geopolitics and macroeconomics. Worse, this man knows just as little about those two subjects as he does about Christianity. It is quite a curse to be involved with that mans ministry
Psalms 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
Psalms 50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
Slowly running out of places we can shop where our money won't be used to somehow promote this disgusting abomination. Have already said goodbye to Target, Burger King and Starbucks but am getting the feeling that soon it won't matter. Living 70 miles from the nearest large city and having to factor in gas prices for our monthly grocery shopping, Walmart saved us money. Super Target was off our list cuz of their stance on this issue and the local grocery stores were higher priced than Walmart. Really feeling as tough I will be forced into financially supporting this lifestyle, like it or not. It's a good thing that The Lord knows the intentions of the heart. Sadness.
