Awesome sermon! Hello Bryan
First off I really enjoy your ministry. You have revealed truths in the bible in months that I have not learned in yrs through regular church attendance. Your ministry through Bible believers fellowship was to the point that I down loaded all the messages and listened to a lot of them 2-3 times. God bless you for that.
I have a question that's nagged me for a while that I thought would tie in with your message on "the biblical def of repentance".
In the KJV I Jn 3:15-16 it uses the word "should" talking about belief. In the Niv and most other versions it uses the word " May and shall" in these two verses. Now is that not a contradiction in the Niv.
Also the word "should is a conditional word whereas " shall" is an affirmative action.
Using the KJV the word "should"ties in with the thought of repentance as well as belief. It is not the easy believisim that is being pushed by modern Babel churches.
I have always thought that there was more to salvation than belief, I guess that's why my bible is 1 1/2 inches thick.
Maybe this would be a nice message in itself in the light that Jn 3;16 is so often quoted in our easy believisim babel doctrine and the reason the KJV is the right one.
Maybe I've got some of this wrong Bryan but I do deeply respect your views and
Great Sermon! PRAISE GOD!!!! I thank God for His use of you ministry to preach His Word. What a gentle, yet dynamic plea of God for the sinner to come, acknowledge his sin,repent, and accept the sacrifice "God will provide Himself a lamb" to forgive sins.
The art of communication is quickly dying, when one drives the other is on the phone , when two go to dinner there each on the phone , the parents are losing there kids . Entertainment is the devils backbone .
Do yourself a favor and do away with the idiot box and don't watch any of this junk . Entertainment is the devils substitute for joy . I did away with the cable 5 yrs ago one of the best things I've done for my family .
I wonder if they will continue to practice after what has happened , if so and one gets bitten again and they refuse help they Die , if they get help will they be accused of not enough Faith . Either way it seems they loose .
