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.
Right on This message was exceptional, and refreshing to find someone willing to take a stand and teach what the Bible actually says, that Jesus taught believers that the church should expect persecution, and that churches should not be packed with believers packing guns, ready to put down persecution with weapons. I'm sure this wasn't a popular message, but what you taught in this message was completely consistent with what Scripture says. The only sword the Christian should wield is the sword of the spirit, not the carnal one.
Good and helpful overview of the role of songs I found this very helpful in explaining not just the role and importance of singing in worship, but also hearing a little more about the background of Machen and the Trinity hymnal.
Excellent message Excellent message, particularly the emphasis on fringy sects of Christianity that preach "the gospel AND...", of which I've been exposed to a lot of lately, so the timing of this was providentially wonderful. It's not just others, though, and it can be easy to slip into that "gospel plus" mentality, so this was a great message to hear and to apply.
Title taught my attention The title of this one got my curiosity, so I listened to this and was really impressed by the depth of this message, and the insight into how the principles of the Satanic bible aren't all that foreign to many mega-churches these days. A good message worth listening to.
