Critique Use caution when defining words. "Wherein" does not have a sarcastic definition in and of itself. It simply means "in what way". The people in Malachi's day weren't sarcastic. They were blind, just like today.
Doing the same We're in the second year of a church plant. This coming Sunday we'll be holding our second vision meeting. We should, absolutely, remind ourselves of our purpose regularly. Thank you.
Great Sermon! I found this series several years ago and have listened to it 6 times since then. Pastor Donnelly's sermons have always been a blessing to me. His uncompromising teaching of the Word is accompanied by compassion, sincerity and due diligence. I have literally listened to every sermon of his that I can find and I thank God for such men.
Fantastic Excellent message about Luther's devotion to hymnody and how important hymns are not just for the times of saints gathering for worship, but for the blessing and edification of singing hymns in the home with children. Wonderful message.
You might want to take a fresh look at David Wilkerson's The Vision (you can find the audio on Youtube). What he said about this sort of thing and compromise is absolutely accurate. Chilling. There is a true Church and there is a harlot Church. What he have here is an example of the latter, obviously.
Excellent message I understand that this is not an easy passage to address, but Pastor Schortmann does an excellent job of emphasizing that God uses broken, undeserving people for his redemptive purposes. Why such a dark event was allowed to unfold in a situation like this is not easy to understand, but I believe that, as the sermon addresses, the horror of rape, the failure of Jacob as a father, the faults of Jacob's sons in seeking a vicious revenge, and ultimately in light of such a bleak situation how there is still grace and redemption. This is a hard passage of Scripture, but this sermon helps with some illumination.
