Amazing amazing amazing! Anxiety was killing me, I think I could have made a career out of it because as the Pastor said, nobody pulls us up on it, as they would other sins. So anxiety just carried on in me, and I would have to say had gradually gotten worse and I didn't realise it. But AMEN to Dr Berg who had preached this amazing sermon on a topic that seems so trivial. This sermon is so clear, so Biblical, so practical, and so applicable that I'm going to play it to my non Christian friend who suffers with the same problem. This sermon is so universal because though we can all suffer from the same sins, there are some that people don't view as sins, but the way anxiety can control and hinder ones life, one cannot help but want to be free from it. Thank you Lord for using Dr Berg to open my eyes, and freeing me from the shackles of anxiety and worry. May God continue to bless and use you.
Great Sermon! Very powerful sermon, really breaks down our duty of forgiveness. This sermon really spoke to me as if it was written for me, because it covered everything I am going through in terms of forgiveness. God bless the pastor, and continue to preach the Truth.
Lance Eccles;-One last thing I want to say on this subject,When I pray to Jesus and call Him 'King of Kings' or 'Lord of Lords' the 'Mighty God',I am worshipping Him and rightly so. When catholics pray 'Mary Queen of Heaven' that is worship of her and that is wrong. Another story I have before I witnessed the rosary,is one Good Friday,I had to work,and missed the service at the anglican church I went to,so I went to the local catholic church with my catholic freind. Near the end of the service a big wooden cross was brought to the front of the church,and the congregation all queued up to kneel at this wooden cross and kiss it,My freind asked me if I wanted to go,I thought of Exodus 20 verse 4 nd 5,and I declined. I didn't know an awful lot of the bible in those days,my walk had not long started,but I knew enough not to worship and kiss a wooden cross. I was misled by the anglican church that I went to at that time and believed then, that catholics were christians. I was so confused about it all,especially after the rosary episode that I prayed to God to show me the truth,and Glory to God He did just that. It doesn't matter what you say to me,because I have the truth from the Highest Authority,God Himself. You could do the same thing,that is if you are brave enough?
GG I love catholic people,it's the doctrine of Rome I hate.I would not still be married to my husband if it were so,remember my husbands family is also catholic. I used to be what you call a 'prot' but now I am a christian,I go to a bible believing non-denominational church.I'm sorry but what I saw in that catholic church was worship of Mary,bowing down and calling her 'Queen of Heaven' all that was mentioned of Jesus is that He is the fruit of her womb,not 'The Saviour'. Have you read Luke1 verse 46-47? There is only one saviour Jesus Christ,the narrow way.NOT the catholic church or the Pope.My husband is an unbeliever,but one day I said to him'I'm sorry but I do not believe Mary is co-redeemer'that shocked him,he didn't know that catholics believed that. I used to go to an anglican church,but I left that because of doctrine,and because of ecumenalism,it took me a year of visiting churches to find a church that God told me was right. I love you GG,-read the new testament. If muslims believe in the same God as christians do,why do they have a cresent moon on their mosques? They say 'Allah has no son'.Jesus is the Son of God,so how do you fathom that they believe the same god of the bible? Allah is a moon god. To saved by grace-Thank you- sending you love in Jesus.
GG I have to correct myself,the sites are Berean Beacon,and Ex-catholics for Christ-sorry about that. Wayne M I agree with what you're saying,we need it in Great Britian too.But it can be difficult when a lot of Christians think that the God of the bible and Allah is the same God. Many Christians are asleep in England,recently there has been upset in London because the muslims wanted to build a mega mosque,right next door to where the stadium for the 2012 olympics are to be held,it would be bigger than St Paul's cathedral! And also to visitors coming by plane,it would be the first thing they see. Secular media is implying that Christians who object to the mosque are racists. Well I remember reading somewhere that the muslims would use the british sense of fair play against us to take over the UK. Well they are doing just that. The few christians that object to the mosque are being shouted down as intolerant racists,a petition that was being set up,which some churches had signed,-they should have checked,as the petition has been traced back to the BNP. So it looks like the muslims may win this battle,but I trust in Jesus that they will not win the war. Also it is interesting to note that the money to build this mosque will come from arabian oil money.
All should remember that catholic people are very indoctrinated,my husband is born into a catholic family (we married years before I knew Jesus) he doesn't believe in God,but if I say anything about how wrong the catholic faith is,he defends it tooth and nail,and he's not supposed to believe in God! Maybe GG should go to a site called 'Berean call' or 'Catholics for Christ' where other ex-catholics have found the truth. Early in my christian walk,when I was ignorant,I went with a catholic friend to pray in a catholic chapel with her. Someone started praying the rosary,which I'd never heard before,but I KNEW straitaway it was wrong.I was like 'Mary,queen of heaven?what the heck is this?' I immediately prayed "Lord Jesus let me out of here!" I was trapped between two people,and I just sat there watching them all nodding their heads to this repitition.It was repeated at least 20 times,I was so relieved to get out,I just turned to my freind and said "I do not want to be a catholic". I tried to tell her the truth over a period of time but she wouldn't listen,she'd get very angry. Where I live moslem people were quite rare 10 years ago,now I see them everywhere,but no way will I ever bow to or worship their false moon god! Jesus IS THE WAY,the TRUTH and the LIFE,the ONLY SAVIOUR!
