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.
Great Sermon! I have listened to this sermon 6 times in the past few months and several of my friends have listened to it more than once. Voddie has so tightly packed truth in this sermon that it takes a while to fully unpack it.
Great Sermon! Bigger issue with colleges isn't just a man or woman taking classes, but rather the fact that Christians get just as carried away with the thinking of "sending away" their children to a college, and then letting the state school indoctrinate them for 4 years.
Great Sermon! While I think there are some good points made here, the problem I find is that there's the other side of the two-kingdom mindset, which tends to be more of a theocratic direction. When Jesus showed the denarius to the Pharisees, it was to draw a clear distinction between the earthly kingdom and the heavenly one.
I do not understand what non Christians who want to disprove the bible and creation are doing on a Christian site. The sermons etc here are free to enjoy so when u comment can you keep it clean and treat others with respect. Keep ur spewing to ur secular sites or if u are desperate to comment then find an evolution supporting forum and practice it there.
Keller is confused Keller was waffling, period. Giving him the benefit of the doubt is exercising too much liberty. The question is asked: does homosexuality send one to hell? The simple answer is yes. I'm not so sure why this is confusing. Now, let's add to this equation: does homosexuality send a repentant, gospel believing homosexual to hell? No, it does not. Why not? Because of repentance and faith in the gospel. Further, does a life ruled by homosexuality send one to hell? Paul says yes, in accordance with 1 Cor 6:9-10. Why is this so? Because the homosexuals life is ruled by homosexuality (sin), and this calls one's faith into question. A willful following of sin is far different than a daily fight against sin which results in failure. With the equation that I presented above, replace "homosexuality" with "any sin", and the formula still fits.
Great Sermon! Really, it was I greatly enjoyed this message, and thought in addition to just being good teaching, there were some genuinely funny moments (such as referencing the guy shooting the gun in the background.) You're right on with this message: gun-lovers are fond of mangling the Scripture to make it say what they want in terms of gun ownership, and for some it almost becomes like a new sacrament of the church, yet truth be told, our weapons should be the sword of the spirit, not a carnal weapon to take down perceived "enemies". Keep up the good work on addressing this topic.
Great Sermon! Good talking points Sean. I've talked with many professing believers that don't believe that the entire Bible is "true", and further, that much of it is allegorical. It's important that people realize just how outlandish such a view is. Jesus quoted many of the OT prophets in His NT ministry, in particular citing that Jonah was factual, and that Jonah was indeed 3 days and 3 nights in the whale's belly. That said, your point rings loud and true that if Jesus used this factual event as an illustration of His future resurrection, then it is to be taken as liter and factual, and not allegorical. Great points.
Great Sermon! first time hearing this show (on the net-SermonAudio.com) and its been very informative so far.
Remember, 2008, Ron Paul, who you mentioned, had over 30,000 small time, christian pastors, who supported him. Glad to hear you mention his name and the important role in saving America.
God Bless and much success.
