Great Sermon! At UN sponsored "Year of the Woman"--which was my formal introduction to feminism and "pro-choice"--(I was @ 15), where bus loads if us public school kids with malleable minds were bused in for "social studies" classes, Betty Ford was there. Betty, a Republican, gave a speech promoting the ERA.
Today, I have saved out of all I have been indoctrinated into.
I am pro-life from conception to natural death. I won't as much as take a flu shot (for many reasons)--uppermost, that it may contain diploid cells from aborted babies. That bothers me greatly.
With many Republicans, I can't see a scintilla of difference on the social issues from hardcore leftist Democrats. I have to remind myself daily that God is sovereign over all of this and thank Him for pulling me out of this.
Great Sermon! Thanks for another truth-packed sermon.
Writing to you today, it is 9/20/16. My husband and I drove by an accident scene on the Ohio turnpike yesterday I will never forget.
A motorcyclist had just been killed @ 10 minutes prior, and his body was covered with a white blanket. The state highway patrol and EMS were somberly handling the situation. My husband and I prayed in the car. For the man, his family, friends, colleagues and all those men on the turnpike for their strength and solace doing such difficult work.
As Christians, we were reminded of the fragility of life, how it's just a vapor. These are turbulent times, indeed. I try to keep up, but not let it overwhelm me. I read in the last 24 hours 2 things that really bothered me:
1). Daddy Bush is voting for Hillary Clinton
2). Catholic university Notre Dame is hosting Supreme Court justice
Ruth Bader Ginsberg for a speaking engagement.
What's wrong with this world? I went shopping at a cosmetics store and could not get help to buy one simple thing. Why? The clerk was helping 2 grown men select their cosmetics! I listen to SermonAudio so much these days in this upside side down world. God bless.
Waking up-Looking at the Sky like you I read this in one of my news sites:
So vile and evil. I am ready for Jesus' return. Anytime now.
Great Sermon! I loved it when the pastor said (paraphrasing): isn't it great (freeing) when we're not so eaten up with self?
It's so true. The things I used to care so much about, the right clothes, the right car, the right education--no longer mean a thing to me. What's important is that He took a once suicidal woman, dragged her out of the slimey muck and mire, and saved her!!!
That was me @ 8 years ago. Everything's different now.
Great Sermon! I enjoy the sermons as well. Super interesting. Does a lot of research.
Discusses the topics that so many modern churches avoid. Wish there was a church like this near me. I hope the members know how blessed they are.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this sermon. i have also read about the bestiality being legalized in Canada b their Supreme Court. I was doing chores and started to hyperventilate when the pastor mentioned about children and bestiality. Evil on steroids.
I, too, caught the remark by Mr. Thiel of PayPal at the RNC last Thursday night.
Apparently, the social issues I care about most are inconsequential now. I watched as his remarks were met with thunderous applause.
It also strikes me as odd that if these issues like bathroom bills are unimportant, why would PayPal pull 400 jobs from North Carolina?
As far as the DNC goes, I can't even watch because it upsets me too much. I understand Cecile Richards, the CEO of Planned Parenthood is scheduled to speak. They are still selling baby parts online, like nothing ever happened...
God bless and keep speaking the truth, Pastor Lawson.
Great Sermon! Just listened to your whole series on the cathedrals. Very interesting and informative. Would love the know the name of the book about how Darwinism has caused untold misery to millions. (It has-I understand now). Darwinism and evolution were taught me non-stop throughout my education. It took getting saved to remove this belief system!
Thanks again for your ministry. I like that you speak about hell and sins, which the emerging church lacks, and your message is strong, but you never lose your humility.
Great Sermon! Why is it that the animals and insects can tell between male and female, yet many humans can't seem to?
Example: we adopted a puppy from a pet rescue group years ago.
We considered adopting her mother as well. Since our dog's mother had been abused by men in a bad puppy mill situation, she learned to become fearful of male humans. Since my husband is a male, the rescue group said the momma would know this and have many issues.. Thus, she couldn't be adopted by us. My point? A dog can tell between male and female humans!
Right now, June 2016, we are experiencing the emergence of the 17 year periodical cicadas. It's an amazing phenomenon I've never experienced and reminds me of God's awesome creations.
The males cicadas by the billions call out to the females, and a new generation results. The insects know who is male and female!
I love your sermons. God bless you all.
Great Sermon! Our Republican governor, Kasich, did not participate in the lawsuit. What you talked about was so on point. I feel the spirit of anti-Christ almost everywhere I go. The mainline churches support this insanity. We live in a world where the consciences of large swaths of the population are unfathed by the most degenerate and evil of acts.
When Clinton and Sanders are fine with an unborn baby being murdered up to birth, and sliced open alive for parts, you know you are living in an especially wicked society. My soul feels like I don't belong here.
God bless, Pastor.
Great Sermon! Hi Pastor-
Told my husband about your sermons and we listened yesterday.
He said he used to listen to you years ago when he lived in Knoxville.
Everything you're talking about here is true, especially
how they're teaching children ungodly things in the schools and media (which they've been doing for decades).
God bless you and your congregation.
Great Sermon! Feel like you do. Pretty much alone in my family for being a Bible believer. You are right on about the Republican Party. Know people voting Republican for decades, going to liberal Christian churches.
There really is no doctrinal difference between them and the most godless atheist or pagan on social issues. Pointed out to family member that his PresbyterianUSA church supports the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. It does. He was furious at me for daring to point that out (he's "pro-choice"). Not allowed to even speak at family events unless I agree with them. Stayed silent for years for fear of offending. I slowly "came out if the closet" as a pro-life, pro-family Christian conservative. There is no relationship anymore. I find I cannot fellowship with those with Hillary or Sanders bumper stickers. Family member thrilled when one of the kids was pursuing a Master's degree in either Gender Studies or Women's Studies. Felt sick.
I have been shunned (and mocked) from very leftist family. I know this comes with truly following the Bible, not cafeteria-style Christianity. All I do today is hold them in prayer.
And I thank God for showing me the truth.
My testimony If link to above testimony does not work, here's another way to read it:
Google: my only child (graphic) + abortion it is not easy to read.
My. first exposure to "pro-choice" (no baby should ever be a "choice"-so I detest this Madison Avenue created term), was in my public school, through U.N. sponsored social studies class "Year of the Woman" field trip. How easy it was to brainwash and indoctrinate a 15 year old. Always presented through euphemistic language, which makes me cringe.
I am about to get real here. ("I am the way, the truth and the life.")
THE ONLY TIME IN MY LIFE I GOT TO TOUCH MY CHILD WAS HOLDING HIS TINY, SHREDDED BLOODIED BODY PARTS IN KLEENEX, DUE TO INCOMPLETE ABORTION--Traumatizing me for life.
I crave hugging this baby I love so much. I thank God for His mercy
for even this sin and daily healing.
Of Pollywogs and Monkeys... Kids from the public schools are taught (like I was) that what exists in the human womb, especially in the early stages of pregnancy, is pretty much pre-human primordial life. I remember very primitive and minimalistic line drawings that represented such life. Pro-life censored. Then, we descended from apes... All manner of abortifacients & abortion as an option were taught. Christianity was mocked & chastity considered old-fashioned. They pumped some pretty lurid Rock n Roll into the halls. At age 15, I attended United Nations "Year of the Woman" rife with feminists. Came home with "pro-choice" literature & a condom. Parents unaware. Lost my way in art school & college. With respect to transparency, here is my story if you care to read it:
I don't mince words. It gets graphic to fight the euphemistic language of the abortion cartel. I am a highly repentant post-abortive mother. I have a story to tell. In one instance, I spoke to a group of pro-life Christian kids, who go to the clinics in Ohio. The leader's wife was reading "Tatooed Jesus" (in my library). I gave the kids my extra copy of book about the men who destroyed the West.
I care deeply about this issue--more so than any other issue.
Thanks for the show.
The LGBTQ & Abortion Biz Are they one & the same? Why do I ask? Have deeply cared about the pro-life issue for years, but I almost always see this fellowship between lesbians, etc. & those who run the clinics.
NARAL + accompanying "clinic" near me rented out a bowling alley for a fundraiser for abortions. As a business owner, if I owned that bowling alley, I could not rent for their purposes. The group looked very LGBTQ. What would happen to me if I declined their business because it violates my deeply held pro-life convictions? Can they use the LGBTQ card?
Also, you gave made many comments on Donald Trump, which I desperately need to try to discern this election through a Christian lens.
What are your thoughts about what he said to Chris Matthews of MSNBC about the scenario where if abortion were illegal, should aborting mothers bear some legal complicity, & thereby be in part punished?
I deeply struggle with this question. Especially coming from my hardcore leftist public school/university "pro-choice" indoctrination. I believe many who commit abortion (not all) are woefully misinformed of the gravity & reality of the act until too late. Suicide rates skyrocket.
I am in the grey area. No punishment at all diminishes the act, while I am not convinced stringing them up is an answer. Thoughts?
You're doing your job. If the Huffington Post attacked you, God bless you. Thank you for having the courage the speak out on these issues. I think you also qualified for some "right-wing-watch" hate groups, if I am not mistaken.
Early last summer, my pro-gay marriage PresbyterianUSA brother approached me for my opinion on the gay marriage issue. Using what I have learned from the Bible, and referring to all sexual sin (humbly including my own as a saved Christian, I told him that I did not agree). He and his adult child he had brought with him had implied that churches that didn't agree with them are basically bigoted. When I gently disagreed with him when asked. He didn't know what to say or do and packed up and left immediately.
Because I made a few posts about said incident on SermonAudio on another pastor's site, a Presbyterian website is now creeping and copying every remark I have ever stated on SermonAudio.
My crime? I disagreed with leftist ideology. I came out of extreme leftist indoctrination. Got saved. I told my husband recently: I refuse to lie and I discern everything for truth and righteousness. I am also an ex Girl Scout, which I no longer support.
California AB 154 Governor Jerry Brown passed this to expand abortion "care"-non-physicians can do this now before 13 weeks...
But-it's ILLEGAL to burn firewood in the Bay Area--with fears of being turned in with fat fines... "Because it could cause reproductive harm." No wonder Ben Shapiro got mobbed. These are the fascists who is running California and the universities.
I came out of this environment, undrank the Kool-Aid and now feel like a dissident in my own country.
