Great Sermon! A powerful, convicting message. The Church in England is sleeping too. The nation that once, under God, gave the English speaking world the King James Bible and exported missionaries around the globe, now exports the profanation of marriage and other evils . May it please the Lord to wake us before His judgement falls. Thank you for this message Dr Johnston. May God have mercy upon us.
Great Book! This is an excellent book, documenting the life of a man totally dedicated to the cause of Christ. The book presents Whitefield 'warts and all' and provides a warm portrait of a man who was truly 'after God's own heart'. The book is thoroughly researched and is both challenging and uplifting. Heartily recommended! A 'must read' for all those who have a longing for revival in our day.
Great Sermon! A powerful and sobering message. Many of us can testify to the bitter fruit that results from a life apart from God - fruit which can remain even after the Lord has graciously intervened to save us. Young people listen to this message particulalry - 'remember your Creator in the days of your youth.' Follow Christ whilst you are young. Don't dalay. Tomorrow may never come- or you may live to regret wicked choices. Thank you Pastor Ovadal.
Great Sermon! I agree 100% with the above comment. We need more of this kind of preaching in my country too. I find that these messages are so helpful and encouraging. They bring light in our darkness. May God have mercy upon us and send revival.Thank you Dr Johnston.
Great Sermon! Excellent message! There is a word for us all here. It can be a temptation to be sidetracked by secondary issues and forget that Christ and His Gospel are what the Christian life is all about. Praise God He sent the Lamb! Thank you Kevin.
Well, they aren't giving away planes for free, and his plane isn't safe to fly around anymore. The only question is whether or not you feel that his ministry is private plane worthy. I'm not really for Mr. Dollar, so I wouldn't be one to donate money for it.
As an expatriate living in the middle east...I wish they wouldn't release reports like this because folks who have nothing to do with the situation will target folks like me--who also have nothing to do with it--as backlash for what these soldiers did. It also hurts our soldiers, embassies and other assets.
Feminism is partially to blame as are our new/old "undocumented workers"...lazy men, liberal "presidents", as well as businesses who decided to avoid the liberal policies by moving their HQs overseas all factor into the situation also.
There looks to be a correlation between feminism and the subject of the article. If you can't read between the lines for yourself--it goes like this. Before the big women's movement a man with one job could support a family of four. I'm age 40 now. My dad was just barely able to do it, but I believe my brother and I are among the last to benefit from this. We were not well off. In fact my dad, who did not graduate from high school, did side jobs and maybe only had one day off a week--we were barely making it.
Nowadays though it's almost impossible. The woman of the house almost has to work to make ends meet. You are working in a country wherein you can't make a living without at least a high school diploma. It's mostly service industry--low paying--even for those who do. Associate degree? Ha! Bachelor's? Getting to be just as bad. Now we have the influx of undocumented workers. Not to mention Obama Clause picking the pockets of those who will work to support lazy men mentioned by other posters!
I wonder if she'll go on apology tours like Obama does these days. I hope the Pres tours all the states to apologize to us once his disastrous term is over. I still hope he's escorted out of the White House in handcuffs, but I'm afraid the "conservatives" are too afraid and/or are mostly R.I.N.O.s anyway, so we're probably stuck with him for two more years. Please don't vote for this witch people! I want to come back to America some day !
I've gotten to where I watch less and less of these shows. I like humor, and making fun of 'churches' or 'religion' in general is fair game, but when they start to make fun or Jesus or even Mary (I'm not Catholic, but she's still blessed and the mother of our Lord) and I have to turn it. Admittedly I don't always turn it fast enough...hence my desire to avoid the shows totally...but most the time once the line is crossed I'm quick to get out of there.
We all have our short comings and we shouldn't have our eyes on anything against the Lord, but I'm almost convinced that watching girls gone wild or the like is better than some of these cartoons and sit coms. It makes me sad that something can't be "funny" without emasculating men--especially fathers--on a side note I wish I'd given my own late father a lot more respect than 'joking' so much in my own life influenced by these shows--, throwing in a homosexual character or two, and generally belittling good, traditional values be they Christian specific or not.
I still struggle when it comes to watching some of my favorite shows, but when it comes down to it if the show promotes the sin and you support the show...then you are supporting the sin whether the show is 'real' or not has no bearing.
One of the times I'm glad to be an expatriate. America is going down the tubes. Sorry John, but Brown would still be alive today if he wasn't breaking the law. He brought all this trouble down on himself. If he had the least bit of common sense he would have gotten off the streets after committing that felony let alone antagonizing and attacking the officer. This thug was no gentle giant...look at his rap sheet! Do you expect the cop to keep his distance and wait until the thug turns himself in? I'm sure gentle Mike could be trusted to follow the "honor system" and turn himself in for that strong arm robbery. Give me a break.
As to the other recent shootings. People should watch their kids. I worked at a youth detention center for a brief period and we had "children" mini-thugs as young as five years old. I BS you not. A twelve year old is more than capable of pulling a trigger. The officers must defend themselves. Children should be taught better and this wouldn't happen.
I don't like that we're losing good judges over this, but I can see the reason why they are leaving. They are taking a stand by stepping down. I can see giving same sex couples a separate license with a "ceremony" performed by a government official that keeps the abomination outside of the church, but it makes the whole thing more and more acceptable to the young and the foolish as an acceptable norm. Certainly a judge with strong faith shouldn't be forced to perform the ceremony any more than a clergyman should, but you know it won't work out that way. Yes, our nation is depraved in so many ways.
This is why it's hard to vote in the States at this time. Neither party makes a legitimate stand for or against anything. Sure, I'm pro-life and most of you are, so we will likely vote Republican because--at least in their platform they are going to be the pro-life party--however, as Frank pointed out, in the end it will make little difference because the abortion mills will still be in business at the end of the day.
That being said, if a Republican in office means that 999,999 babies are murdered instead of 1,000,000 then I'll vote Republican every time. Each and every life is precious. You will have to do the legwork on this, but there are certain executive orders that provide funding and training to overseas doctors to perform abortions. These orders are inacted when the democrats are in office and redacted when the Republicans are in office. I haven't the time to look for the stats, but the were in place under Clinton--redacted under Bush--yeah, the guy most hate saved a few lives--and of course reinstated under Obozo.
If you are Christian and you believe what you claim to...you can't vote Democrat, at least not without repentance afterwords.
