Great Sermon! Why is this so hard to get through? :-/ Obviously He Chose us in him before the foundation of the world, but not until we receive him and believe are we sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, and are "in Christ". Again Gods free gift of salvation is offered FIRST, and Jesus died for ALL the sins of the whole world but not until you RECEIVE him are you "in Christ" Hey I've been Chosen for many things in this life but that didn't mean I received anything. weather chosen or not that act of receiving was on me. Answer this Calvin, what came first in Cornelius' Salvation? It was by 'HIS' prayer's and 'HIS' alms brought forth as memorial FIRST and then was Heard, Seen and Remembered by God! Don't pretend that you got the Bible all figured out friend, much has yet to be fulfilled.
Great Sermon! Your dying with a deadly disease and your house has been quarantined the doctor delivers you the Cure and leaves it at your doorstep in a box, if you don't open the door and receive the box with the cure you will die in your disease. However if you open the door and and by free will choose to accept the box and RECEIVE the cure inside you will live and no longer will you die in your disease, therefore you have been given a cure and a choice, to accept and receive the free gift of life that Jesus offers you, who are dead in your trespasses and sins, or not accept and receive God's free gift of salvation. AGAIN John 1:12 reads "But as many as RECEIVED him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name". Why won't you RECEIVE God's free gift friend, Jesus is calling, even all who are dead can hear his voice, you can answer the door... "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me"
Great Sermon! Question: Was Ruckman a saved man? If the answer is yes then the debate is over and Peter Ruckman wins. Because what ever error we believe him to have been in, he has, and is now, in the presence of the truth, Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. We can bash Ruckman all we want but it is a waste of time, for time and life is short and today is the day of salvation! We need to be sharing and spreading the Gospel to the lost, Ruckman took it to the streets, God isn't done with street preaching friends, what are you doing for the LORD? Bashing his saints? Uh huh, knock it off and get busy Jesus is coming. So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Great Sermon! The very title indiscriminately implied this was going to be a KJB comparison, and sure enough, as we've come to expect it turned into another KJB bashing session. It would be great to make this official and actually invite a gust speaker from the so called "kjv only" camp to offer salt and light to the lack of understanding from people who are not "kjv only". Sam Gipp would be a fantastic guest for you guys to invite on the show, please check into doing so, it would be amazing and wonderful to see if a fellowship could even be achieved by the Berean's in your studio with the "kjv only" camp. :-)
Great Sermon! Thanks for sharing, tough topic for sure. I'll be brief, just a couple things to take note of: God told Adam to replenish the earth, this prefix (re) is a key to understanding something was before, and in Jeremiah we also see God's anger destroying a city of the fallen angels no doubt, before man was created. How are we to place this context in a post Adamic earth. Also I have no problem with Adam being around 6000 years ago or dinosaurs living right up to the great flood none of this is a problem for me it's biblical and modern science is even finding blood cells in dinosaur bone, which means they are not millions of year's old.
Great Sermon! I love you guys but this KJV bashing (yes, when you called them 'ignorant' you are bashing) is hard to listen to, please at least have someone from thier "camp" present to clear up all your mistakes or at least share with you some reason, logic and love as to why they support that translation. This sermon could of been five minuts long and we would have got your point but the longer you guys went on the more I started to question your validity and simply checked it out for myself (yes on the computer as I listened) and all the confusion you said was present with the KJV was cleared up and easily solved. I don't understand what the point of this cast is unless this is your call to challenge a KJV believer to a debate.
Great Sermon! ¬†Jewish holiday¬†of¬†Purim, from the Book of Esther is a prime biblical example you should speak of and if not understood correctly it could easily be mistaken for an old testament "purge". We would love to hear your response in comparison. Thank you we love The Briefing.
Great Sermon! Wait a minute, part of all they need to do is perform two miracles? Isn't that what Catholic priest's do every time they turn the bread and wine into the real physical body and blood of Christ? Should not every Catholic priest be a saint by this standard of performance in the sacraments?
Great Sermon! What's the problem? Article #7 in the Statement of Faith (every broadcaster had to agree upon) reads as follows...
"We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Jesus Christ and cherish every Scriptural expression of that unity. However, we reject the unscriptural attempts at church union by such organizations as the World Council of Churches and Evangelicals and Catholics Together."
Great Sermon! Indeed, thanks for the clear up but I think more then a written or spoken apology is in order here. Perhaps a joint broadcast where a lasting friendship between two brothers in Christ could be established. I would hate to hear only an apology with guilt and remorse still heart felt and no friendship made. My prayers for both of you, be well and His bless. :)
Great Sermon! Very powerful sermon, but the pastor needs to wear a lavalier microphone, because at times his volume became so overbearing I had to take my headphones off because I couldn't lower the volume in time.
