Really helpful I really appreciate this, especially what he says about occasional meditation. That is something I do but have never heard a preacher describe. This is a relief to me. Last year, I was very sick and almost died. I was diagnosed with cancer just before easter. Just a few hours before I was diagnosed, I was at work and someone had given me an easter themed button that showed 3 crosses shilhouetted on golgotha. I started thinking about Jesus's death on the cross and about how he told the criminal who believed in Him that he would be with Him in paradise. These contemplations brought me great peace despite the chaos of my physical health. Well, I mentioned this a week later to friends from church and one of the ladies said what I did was idolatry and rebuked me. All that to say, I am relieved that other Christians such as this preacher do not think it is idolatry to be reminded of God by everyday things and meditate on the truths which we are reminded of.
Great Sermon! I have been listening to quite a few sermons on the topic of how to hear from God and yours stuck out as being right on. This sermon was much better than others I listened to but still I wish you had gone into more specifics when it came to knowing exactly that when your reading your bible, how you know that what you are reading is God speaking specifically to you and what is just refresher.
noooooooo Jesus gave all of his miracles credit to someone greater.. without the father.... his job was done...is God done??? Jesus was sent he didn't just appear... sent by who? ?? Risen by who? ? Someone greater? ?? 609.339.9189. Call me...
Great Sermon! Your definition of trinity is not in the bible... but if you believe that all three make up one "god".. takes away from what we know as of "God"..if so Jesus was sent by the"Father".. if Jesus gives homage to someone greater than he it's obvious that someone is greater than Jesus? ??
The arcticle was kind of misleading to say the least. It makes it out like the parents were upholding the teaching of the Word of God by what they did. They didn't even give us specifics on what they did to her.
This goes against the Bible on so many levels. How about the verse that says we are to "install from strong drink". As for just being there to try and reach the ones who won't come to church, doesn't it say in James that we are to be " in the world but not of it". Nowhere does it say "don't heed unto my words if you see differently" or " thou mayest be drunken with wine if thou useth thy better judgment"! I know that sounds a little corny, but that's what he's saying. Maybe he doesn't really know what the Bible says? I don't know. Hopefully someone will tell him as this "effort to evangelize" is further dragging the name of Christianity in the mud
The words "self-proclaimed" should tell us something right off the bat. Why is it that there are people all over the world that make totally outlandish claims about all sorts of things, but if someone does it, and says they're a christian, it's in the news or there's an article written about it. They're trying to male us seem like fools...
