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.
A Response Todd, I agree with about most of what you said. But technically, 2.05 children is â€śincreasing.â€ť ;-) I say this tongue in cheek, but also to let you know I could never say that couples who have 3 or more children and then sterilize themselves are disobeying the command to â€śbe fruitful.â€ť
Also, I am very surprised at Vodieâ€™s example of people being upset about having 5 children, and your own example about being afraid that someone would be upset. I have honestly never seen or heard those attitudes in any Christian in my life! Surprise? yes! Questions about how to pay for college? yes! But upset? So Iâ€™m sorry you have encountered those attitudes.
The only thing close to that is when some Christians get so upset about a teenage young lady getting pregnant that they refuse to have a baby shower for the baby. This is where I step in and ask if we as the church want to welcome that child into the world? (In that case, we might as well pay for the abortion, right?) That has usually helped people realize where their attitude is leading.
Thank you for preaching with conviction, and inviting response as well.
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!

I would think that is because they don't allow anything but "positive" comments. I just listened to a sermon that was full of inaccuracies. I tried to leave a comment explaining that, but then saw their disclaimer. If you are going to allow comments, then ALL comments (except profane stuff) needs to be allowed. Not allowing people to point out errors, especially Biblical ones, does NOT help the site at all. False doctrine can easily be taught, misrepresentations of the Bible can get out, etc. Please, you need to fix this. I saw this site advertised in a very conservative magazine, but after ONE sermon I don't have much trust in it.
What does the Bible say about this? ... Jeremiah 3:16 And it will be when you have multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, says Jehovah, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of Jehovah! Nor shall it come to mind; nor shall they remember it; nor shall they visit it; nor shall it be made any more. Thank you for your Word, Lord!
Good sermon. This is a very good sermon; however, it is very, very similar to Ray Comfort's "True and False Conversion" first delivered in 1983.
I would encouarge those who read this to listen to Comfort's messages as well.
