Great Sermon! This is not a politically correct sermon. It is a much needed sermon. Apart from the archaic language in many Puritan sermons, there is no difference in spirit here. It is the spirit of repentance and reflection.
God Did Not Lie... Friends, God did not lie. He was referring to the evil report of the land, and their own assertion that God could not keep his promise. Moses asked God to pardon for the sake of the His great Name (vs. 15-16). God did pardon, and kept his promise, but those who desired to go back to Egypt reaped what they had sown in unbelief. He gave them what they asked for. By saying, "ye shall know my breach of promise", God was in essence saying, "You think I can't keep my promises by defeating these giants? I'll show you that supposed broken promise by having your children defeat them, while you die in the wilderness." It was confrontation of their unbelief. KJV still stands.
Romans 1:18-32 says it all. And this is the platform the democrats and much of the U.S.A. runs on. God is giving them over. Pray for this nation anyone you know so they nay not fall into this platform.
The proof is in Jesus Christ, His life, death, and resurrection. His resurrection affirms the works of Jesus and what He proclaimed Himself to be as the Son of God. And His resurrection is the only plausible explanation for the cause of the rapid rise of Christianity. He has risen brother. Believe!
I am not sure what is more disturbing about your sermon. The "divine authority" you cited for the abuse of children, or the eagerness of your congregation to agree and applaude to it. There will no doubt be people who will point to your speech as to why they can and do abuse the children they are supposed to love and protect. Your views are dispicable. Good people will do good things. Evil people will do evil things. But it takes religion to make good people do and say evil things. I shiver at the thought that you will continue to lead people, lie to children, and preach hatred and immoral ideas day after day.
Great Sermon! I really felt i had to mention what this sermon meant and still means to me. It is unreal how it is pertanent to how I am feeling right now. I lost my fiance and have been in termoil. God has now blessed me with these words. They were all so important. There are no explanations that can express how much i appreciate the man of God who blessed us through Christ with the truth. Thank You!
