Informative! Thanks for reposting this. This clears it up for me. As I listened to arguments against Christmas by other Christians, I kept thinking that it's not the pagan aspects of Christmas that bother atheists but the focus on God incarnate (our Lord Jesus Christ).
Great Message! 1 Peter 2:11-12 urges us, as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from those things that war against the soul, conducting ourselves in an honorable manner. Thanks, Jason for expounding on and giving examples of what these verses mean.
He's dead but the doctrine lives! Myles Munroe is dead but his devilish doctrine lives on in books, audio and video media. I knew he was a false teacher but I didn't know that Myles Munroe taught that the gospel was not about Jesus, no one needs to hear about the blood, and other such things like this. Thanks you, Saiko Woods, for the information.
Great Sermon! I did not know what Dominionism was; thanks for explaining it. Also, thanks for reminding me not to judge others through the lenses of my own knowledge and life influences. Do/did they have the same knowledge? What influence their way of thinking about a thing? I will remember this.
Great Message! Maybe I recognize pride in others because as the saying goes, "like knows like." Ouch! Pride comes in many shades and layers. P.S. - I like this reading of the message better than the other one.
Great Sermon! Am I just playing a game of religion (I look alive but am really dead) or do I have a new nature (I've been changed/made alive by the Spirit)? Am I living for God's approval ("Well done, good and faithful servant.") or man's ("I know you're one of us.")?
Oh My! Never read the books but did listen to a dramatized version of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Also listened to an audiobook of Prince Caspian. I remember thinking at the time, "...these allegories are too deep for me. Guess I like things were I know what's going on, like in Pilgrim's Progress. I don't understand 'deeper magic' and good centaurs, good dwarfs and good goat people...and the god Bacchus is good!" Now I know why I didn't get it.
Children of the Light Having Fun In the Dark When you think of what goes on around halloween, the theme of death and darkness...well, the enemy of our souls likes us to just think of this time as having a little harmless fun.
The Other Side of C.S. Lewis! For almost 30 years I'd only heard the orthodox Christian quotes of C.S. Lewis, so I just knew Pastor Jason had this one wrong! Well, I did the research after listening to this message. I haven't found anyone saying that these pagan/not orthodox Christian quotes didn't come from Lewis. In fact, I've found people trying to defend/get around the quotes.
