News in Focus Trevor Hanmack is a host of the News in Focus Program, hence the fact he reports on the news - and the Pope is often in the news. It is important to understand what the Catholics believe in order to be able to have an intelligent conversation with them if we want to witness to them.
Great News in Focus! All those who disagree with the Obama care should listen! Of course it is not without a fault. No program is perfect but it is foolish to dismiss it just because they don't like Obama. Especially when most people have not read it, ever! One of the things the NiFP taught me is to research, research, research before I voice my opinion. Thank you Trevor!
Great Sermon! It is so refreshing to hear of an godly example of marriage. Married couples should cherish each other and they should not take their marriage for granted. Sometimes people don't realise how privileged they are - not everybody has been granted a marriage partner.
A must hear! Hi Trevor, just listened to the first half of the latest NiFP. It is scary to think that someone can be assured of her faith for years then lose it completely. It bothers me greatly. How can one be sure that this will not happen to her/him? I know that I am a Christian. I do struggle with reading the Bible on a regular basis. I could listen to sermons all day though. I think it is our busy lifestyle and probably laziness on my part. Even so, I have assurance of my salvation. But when I hear a story like hers, it scares me. When she said she will burn in hell I felt so sad for her. Fair enough, she should have attempted to talk to her congregation earlier but I think the people of her church not treated her very well. Shunning her will not make her want to believe in God. What happened to showing love, compassion? Sad situation. I agree with you regarding doubt. Peter/Thomas had doubts. It makes you think rather then just believe because someone told you to do so. Great subject, well done!
Truth above all things! Hi, your SH interview was great. I am glad he had the chance to clear things up, everybody deserves that - regardless we like the person or not. He makes me feel a bit uneasy, I might be a bit sensitive about this but I don't agree with him saying we should not mix with non Christians and we should not call them friends. 4 yrs ago something similar started off a big thing in my church and half of the people left the congregation which resulted in a tiny church struggling even more. Even so, just because I don't particularly like SH I am glad he had the chance to set the record straight.√ā¬†
Wow! Great subject, a must hear! Thank you Priscilla for your honesty and testimony. I am confident it will help to those who struggle and those who don't! It is refreshing to hear a different approach to homosexuality. I never understood what it is like to struggle with this particular sin. Praying for you! And Trevor, that's exactly why I listen to you! You don't shy away from difficult subjects. Hope you will never change!
Keep up the good work! The NiFP is a much needed programme.Thank you for taking the time to record them, they are a blessing to us, listeners. I thank God for your wife and family as they keep supporting you greatly in your ministry!
Why don't we ever learn.. It is so very clear in the Bible:
Mat 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
Mat 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
Mat 18:17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
And of course the golden rule: context, context, context!!!
1Timothy 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless First of all, how can he still be a pastor after what he's done in the past? Yes, there is forgiveness for all kinds of sins but he should have stepped down long time ago as he does not qualify as a pastor any more. What happened to church discipline? No wonder the world calls us hypocrites. We need to pray for him and his church!
Strange combination! Katy Perry and Sesame street.. Somehow I can't see the logic in that. But as they say, there is no such a thing as a bad publicity! It is just another proof that protest is not the way.. Thanks for the News In Focus, as always!
Interesting topic! 'The lady in the UK' will give you another chance:) And that is because I agree with you, and your take on small groups. At our church, we 'don't do' small groups. I personally believe that it does not promote unity in the church. Thankfully, my pastor agrees. We do't have children's/young people's group either. On Tuesdays, when we have our Bible study we all sit together.I must admit we are not a big church, but even if we were, we still would not separate our people into small groups. There is no Biblical reason to do so. To be truthful,it is very popular in the UK, too (mainly in Pentecostal, Anglican and Charismatic churches).
My favourite News in Focus so far! I am glad you preached on this subject. I agree with you 100 %. This madness needs to stop. We need to preach/witness to Muslims the same way we do it to any unsaved person. Burning their holy book is not the way. Read it, then we can have an intelligent discussion about it with the Muslims! Thanks again (as always) for standing up for the truth rather then just trying to be a popular preacher.
Great Sermon! Wow that is not a cheap conference!How can people with families afford it? I agree, it is unnecessary to spend that much just to listen to good preaching. I would probably attend a conference for the social benefits only, everything else is available via the internet.
Praying for you and for your family! A very sad recording.. I just listened to your sermon which you recorded just a day before your father died. You preached about death, suffering without knowing how relevant it would become to you a day later. Death is very real, we need to remember that every day. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.
