Its very interesting why everybody is so worried about the outbreak. If everybody else is vaccianted why should they worry about Us bring it onto them? Like Hello? Is there freedom out there yet? How about living in accordance with the Bible?
If only Cleveland pitched this good I admit Rev. Modene is a guilty pleasure for me because I am Reformed. As usual, he pitches a fast ball at the head of the "professional" pastors. He's right that you will not see this preached in many pulpits. It really gives you pause to think.
Alcohol The "wine really means grape juice" is a Mormon belief. It's an example of clear Scripture being muddied to fit a church belief.
From a societal standpoint, condemning alcohol was a valid belief. Alcohol was destroying families wholesale in the early 1900's leading to the Prohibition Movement. The Prohibition Movement was not a religious movement. It was a response to what was occuring in society. Somehow, it managed to become doctrine in many churches.
Good message on teachers Lots of good insights here on false teachers and "prophets". You can certainly see that today. He makes a good case against modern day "prophets".
The swerve into VT didn't really make sense.
Very good explanation This is very good explanation of the power of sin to affect our lives. I was heartened by the reminder that "Sin abounds but Grace abounds more". Grace is abounded more here in Blacksburg.
Just what we needed A beautiful message from the pulpit. We do need to mourn and we do need to reach out to each other during times of tragedy. It was a fitting message to download and hear on the first day of classes here at Virginia Tech.
Be Ready, Not Getting Ready An outstanding message that is so obvious but so lost to our minds. We need to BE ready, not getting ready. We end up like the foolish virgins, always thinking we have time. When time is up, where are we? We are still not ready.
Great Sermon! We hear the message; we know it comes from the Lord yet we ignore it. A convicting message for our age. It contains a very good comparison of Jehoshaphat and Ahab that bears repeating.
The hardest words you'll ever hear It is a tough sermon. If you are not sure of your faith, it will buckle your knees. But you need to hear it. Churches don't like to preach this message to the folks in the pews but they desparately need to hear it before it is too late.
What does it cost? The concept of the "pearl of great price" is pretty deep. You must give up everything to get it yet you give up nothing of any lasting value to you. Of course, it doesn't look that way at the time. The question is whether you have truly given up the temporal things of life to obtain the True Prize.
