Great discussion Great discussion and I agree with many of your comments and observations. The devaluing of the current educational model is alarming. A High school diploma has almost become worthless.
Is Berean Baptist Academy any different? Is there anything BBA can do different to break the status quo?
not my position Ted cruz gave us roberts. So much for a proven political record. Cruz lies, which last i heard is hated by god more than casinos. Trump also touts the bible everywhere he goes sincerely and with greater conviction than cruz saying he will dĂ˛ more for christians than many of our previous presidents EVER did. Adultery is bad, but remember DAVID was an adulterer and LOVED the Lord
Great Sermon! How about the Christians that use "King David committed adultery" and "he was after God's own heart" as their an excuse to live in unrepentant sin when pointed out to them
Any sermons covering those people?
Paganism that all of Godâ€™s living creations are designed to reproduce â€śaccording to their own kinds.â€ť
Finally, the mutant theory creates serious questions pertaining to the spiritual accountability of hypothetical demon-humans and their relation to humanityâ€™s redemption. Angels rebelled individually, are judged individually, and are offered no plan of redemption in Scripture. On the other hand, humans fell corporately in Adam, are judged corporately in Adam, and are redeemed corporately through Jesus Christ. We have no biblical way of determining what category the demon-humans would fit intoâ€” whether they would be judged as angels or as men, or more significantly, whether they might even be among those for whom Christ died.
I believe the better interpretation is that â€śsons of Godâ€ť simply refers to the godly descendants of Seth, and â€śdaughters of menâ€ť to the ungodly descendants of Cain. Their cohabitation caused humanity to fall into such utter depravity that God said: â€śI will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earthâ€”men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the airâ€”for I am grieved that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lordâ€ť (Genesis 6:7â€“8).
On the money As far as the biblical doctrine of repentance, it is refreshing to hear a man of God get up there and preach the truth and against easy believe ism. I don't know if I can go as far as stating whether or not the man is not saved, some people happen to be saved in spite of themselves and their wonky theology. I think we need to be very careful when we characterize other people,, but I do agree with publicly marking those to cause division is Scripture commands. I also respect how this past year goes out on street preaches, and he loves the lostâ€¦ Isn't that who Jesus came to seek and save? For the most part, I thought this was a very good messageâ€¦ I certainly can understand some of the indignation
Solomon not Christ I don't know where you stand on racially charged sermons, but your interpretation of Song 5:10 and the woman's failure to open the door are, with all due respect, likely to be misunderstood. The verse clearly talks about Solomon not Christ. "My beloved is white and ruddy" does not speak to Christ's complexion. Christ wasn't born yet, and the Songs are not prophetic; therefore, saying that "Christ's character is seen in his complexion" is your personal opinion as you said. You also say the woman was lazy and failed to open to her lover, while Song 5:5 says she did open but he was gone. Again, personal opinion.In Song 5:5 we see that she put on her coat and defiled her feet to open the door, so what makes her lazy? Because she's black? Maybe her lover was a bit too impatient? Christ is not, so only the deep love described in Songs can be analogically applied to Christ and His Church. Solomon is not a type of Christ. Solomon is said to be "white and ruddy" not Christ. Christ is described in Rev 1.
