Good Word! Thank you for this message!
When I hear preachers and teachers talk about "carnal Christians, I often wonder how they reconcile that view with scripture. For example, Phil. 2:13 says "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure." God saves us where we're at, but He does not leave us there. True believers receive the grace of sanctification, which power works in us throughout our lives.
"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." (Rom. 8:7). If the carnal mind is enmity against God and not subject to His law, how can there be such a thing as a carnal Christian?
Dr. Johnston, you make a wonderful biblical case against the "carnal Christian" teaching, and it is a breath of fresh air!
I sadly I can see this happening in America. All I will say is be grounded in God's word. Live according to It. DO NOT coward down to men. Why fear men when you should fear God even more so. I will speak the truth no matter what and I hope you will too!
Great Sermon! The only way I can believe someone has truly been to heaven and back is if their goal is not to do their own will but God's will. And strive for saving many from eternal damnation. For who can stand face to face with God and not change their ways completely. We must as believers go back to the scriptures in these times of false prophets leading us astray. But God's word will never lead us astray for He is perfect and holy. May the Bible be you foundation which it can never be destroyed. Ask our Father in heaven for protection against false prophets ask Him that you will not fall for their unbiblical messages. I will pray that His people will not fall for such things.
A good thing to remember The only way I can believe someone has been to heaven and back is if their life has been turned around to see that God's word is completely true and they strive to save many from eternal damnation. If Jesus is not their main focus their experience CANNOT be true. Who stand in the very presence of God face to face and not focus on His glory. We must as believers turn to the word of God for ansers

So you're saying that after a child has completed their schooling (by whatever means) they are then capable to go out into the world alone, and not before? We go out into institutions for most of the day when we work, or attend University. Should this be our first experience of attending an institution for most of the day? Wouldn't you say that attending an institution with the support of parents to help and guide them through each day, is far better than saying 'now you're on your own, remember everything i taught you!' I know of some children who were home-schooled. Now they are not serving God, struggle to keep down a job, are poorly educated and have little social skills. I believe this is a reflection of a sheltered upbringing and home-schooling. I believe many important things can be learned for public schooling. Including the sinfulness of man, and things that do not glorify God! I believe it is easy to show children that they should behave differently to their peers when they can see a contrast to the behaviour of Christians and non-Christians.
I just don't think we can put all our eggs in the basket of govt schooling. We have a responsibility to raise our children in the ways of God, this doesn't begin at school age and end with a certificate. I have a 2 yr old who i'm training in the ways of God now. A dedicated, godly parent would be using the experiences their children face in govt school to teach them the ways of God. It's still a protective environment, if done correctly. If anything i've found that home-schooled children are more vulnerable and fragile when they are finally thrust into the world. I think govt school provides a natural stepping stone into the world for our young children.
Please listen to this sermon Proverbs 18:13 says "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him." The Holy Spirit will open the eyes of those who truly desire truth. Pastor Schwertley presents a solid biblical teaching here, so please listen to this sermon and then, if you have been observing Christmas traditions, take it to the Lord in prayer for deliverance from this pagan worship.
