Great Sermon! Very interesting! When I was a new believer, someone asked me "what is the difference between most bathing suits and walking around in underwear?" I am a mom of multiple sons so attending public swimming pools are not usually an option for us. I am trying to teach them to see girls/women as people and to discern how our culture treats them as objects. Also, to understand why some females seem to desire to be treated as an object (I used to be one of them)and to have compassion for these people.
Great Sermon! This was such a blessing to me. I expected to hear a sermon about why I should be praying more (which I already know). Instead, I heard a message which stirred up my desire to pray more and also encouraged me to persevere in the areas that I have grown weary. Thank you!
Interesting and to-the-point I was amazed at the huge amount of attention the Ken Ham v. Bill Nye debate received. I watched the full debate and was honestly disappointed in it, mostly due to the fact that Bill Nye through out way too many claims and Ken Ham did not have near enough time to sort through them.
My brother and spent hours discussing possible rebuttals. For example Bill Nye mentioned the TV program in which the face of murder victims can be re-created using only skulls, therefore we should trust scientists who do this with ancient fossils supposedly recreating prehistoric men? But how can CIA recreate faces? By observing thousands of similar cases and making deductions. Obviously, there are not thousands of ancient photographs we can compare with thousands of skeletons until we observe trends and patterns needed to recreate ancient men from fossils.
There was just no way to condense all the refuting needed into 5 min blocks.
I was so glad to find that my favorite apologetic's podcast had done a series with the scientific answers to Bill Nye's claims. These podcasts were interesting, to-the-point and easy to understand. I highly recommend them to all.
Practical and Biblical! This is such an important principle for living a life of purity! We are setting our youth up for failure if we ignore this wisdom. I wish I would have learned this when I was younger.
Great Sermon! I needed to hear this message! I am convicted of my unthankful heart and encouraged to repent. I pray that I, and all who listen, will be filled with the Spirit and give thanks at all times!
