Another view on Simon the Sorcerer..... When Peter rebuked him. Did Simon admit his guilt? No, he exhibited fear. Instead of praying for himself,he asked Peter to pray for him. There is no evidence that he ever repented.He is an example of those who believe in the power of God,who want the blessings but will not humble themselves through repentance and heart-felt faith. You cannot buy the things which God gives freely, salvation,forgiveness ,heaven, or spiritual life with filthy lucre. Seems Simon was more interested in the miracles than following Christ.
Free-grace is the boast of true pilgrims below, As through this dark valley to Zion they go. Free-grace long has been my soul's triumph and joy; And, while in the body, shall be my employ; And when my glad spirit to God shall ascend Free -grace is the song which shall never end. ~Cornelius Slim~
Free-will is a liar, says"tis with ease A man can believe and repent when he please That he's a free agent, and so may refuse The good or the evil, whichever he choose." Free-will's an imposter and cheat, at the best, To offer salvation he never possess'd If certain conditions I only fulfill, Yet gives me no power to do nor to will. ~Cornelius Slim~
Mr.Yurich USA, But The LORD JESUS CHRIST says, God is a Spirit; and they that worship Him MUST worship Him in spirit and TRUTH. John 4:24. It's not about us and how we feel and how we want to do it. Remember Aaron's sons And what happened when they did it their way and not the way the Lord God commanded.Think on these things!
Great Sermon! A message of clarity, discernment and direction concerning the way a Christian should go concerning the right kind of worship music in church. Dr. Bob Jones Jr. message "Sound Doctrine Vs. Doctrine of Demons" is one that carries a timely warning to pastors and church members on Satanâ€™s method of distraction and deceit concerning gospel music in church. One well known gospel group, out of Tennessee, performs in many Christian churches only to learn the lead singer has done the sound track and is featured in a movie called â€śBell Witch.â€ť "The Bell Witch or Bell Witch Haunting is a poltergeist legend from Southern United States folklore, involving the Bell family of Adams, Tennessee. The legend is the basis of the films The Bell Witch Haunting (2004) and An American Haunting (2006 and is said to have inspired the Blair Witch Project."
