Mr. Chapman, I believe you could find hundreds if not thousands of Pastors who would strongly denounce ALL papal acts against Christ (such as offering up the daily sacrifice of mass as justification for sins). A quick search on this website alone yields numerous sermons on this very topic. No matter how illustrious a man may be in his organization, if he starts to slide into heresy (Mr. Shoemaker), it is a Christ-obeying Pastorâ€™s duty to rebuke him. Again, I commend Mr. Oâ€™Neal for his stand here, despite it costing him the FGBCâ€™s censure. Itâ€™s obvious to me the lawsuit was a convenient excuse to oust Oâ€™Neal for his Christ-honoring standards now distasteful to ecumenical groups. This happens all the time in compromised organizations. Additionally, our faith should never be the product of group think. We should aim to please Christ alone. Remember Noah? How many supported his ark building? And if I practiced DARING people to do something, I might dare you to name one leader in Noahâ€™s day that supported him.
It is disgusting to me that Mr. Howell would publish his revoking your credentials on an atheist site like The Wartburg Watch and Spritual Sounding. I've looked at your blog on what Julieanne Smith did and can't believe pastors didn't stick together against such evil. Mr. Howell should be ashamed of his work there.
Great Sermon! thank you for preaching the word of God. I missed the part about hugging, I totally agree. I always felt uncomfortable hugging someone not your spouse. awkward to say the least. thank you for clearing up the difference between Godly jealously and envy.
Great Sermon! Congratulations on your engagement. Its great to see a servant of God to find someone. Such happy news as I have heard your testimony. Its awesome to see that God does send someone your way.

Clearly Hillary and the Obama administration do not practice "Love thy neighbour." Bible states Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: I wonder if the Democrats will seek to legitimize beastiality next?
No. They love and protect their animals. Children? Not so much.
Great Sermon! Hello,
Just listened to this sermon. I agree with all you said. It does bring one thing to mind for me, which is 1 Cor.7:15
I'm curious about that verse. It sounds like if an unbeliever leaves, and you cannot stop them...it says the "believing" man or woman is not bound in such circumstances..
What about if the spouse who leaves is a proclaiming Christian, couldn't you say that they are not or they would follow God's commands.
Also, in the verses about allowing divorce due to adultery, what would you say to the verse (Matt.5:27) when Jesus talks about looking lustfully at another has already committed adultery?
This stuff can go on and on with digging into different verses.
My personal ideas are believing in forgiveness. I think that both people are probably not living up to what they should be in the marriage if adultery occurs too. (1 Cor. chpt. 7)
Some people look for loop holes.
Thanks for a very great sermon! I enjoy listening to many of your sermons and they've helped me grow a lot.
thank you for preaching God's word You hit the button right on the nose. There are preachers, albeit very few, out there who concentrate on soul winning almost to the point of works salvation. I am a weak baby Christian, I would be the wrong person to be out there trying to save souls. If anything people would be turned away by my example. I am the last person you would want out there witnessing to people. I hope to grow more but right now I am so carnal. I am learning much from your sermons. Thank you so much.
Great Sermon! Wonderful sermon! Everyone who walks into church every Sunday carrying or reading from an NIV, NASB, NKJV or ESV should listen to this! I've listened to it twice now and will probably hear it again soon. Tremendous lessons in this sermon, even beyond the obvious.
Great Sermon! I praise God for your courage and faithfulness in speaking out against the false yet dominating "church" in China for The Lord Jesus Christ. Even though your accurate peception and admonition may not be well received in the many many of the liberal and Baalic North American Chinese congregations,(I do wonder at times, which is worse, to be living under the overt Baal system in China or the subtle version of it here in North America), I am most certain that the Holy Spirit can continue to edify the true Church through your courageous voice. Thank you brother Pan.
Great Sermon! It'so refreshing to hear someone taking the Word literally. I get so weary of listening to a-millenist theology which seems to go to such convoluted lengths to avoid the simple meaning of the text. When I query things I seem to be regarded as a simpleton. Unfortunately I live in an area where this teaching prevails. We are also fairly isolated and my husband is disabled so we can't travel big distances. Thank you it was so encouraging.
I was so disappointed when I could no longer listen to Martyn Lloyd-Jones. You used to have about fifteen sermons of his posted and now none are available. I used to listen to his sermons several times over and over again.
