Great class Thank you for availing us of your class on history of Holiness (and really the Chari/costal movement). Your connections to the Holiness groups were insightful. Most of all, your message was quite pastoral. I feel your pain when you discussed the wicked implications of health and wealth for those suffering in the Gospel.
Interesting commentary Thank you for the comments on Cotton Mather. I was looking for info on Salem because my family roots go back to that town. I had not considered the dark side of postmillenialism until hearing you and looking up Obadiah Holmes. It convinces me more that Christians at large are not meant to build earthly kingdoms, but rather to seek the heavenly city in Heb. 12.
Great Sermon! Clear exposition of Jude. Appreciated point that wherever the Gospel goes, Satan also chases with false teaching - and the latter days began since Jesus came the first time. Thank you for this message. I look forward to other installments on Jude.
Solid teaching Brother Peter's does a yeoman job in analyzing and refuting WoF heresy. More importantly, though, he also shows thru the pages of Scripture how God actually works in different ways through malady. Thank you for a strong presentation that stretches us to think and minister biblically.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this helpful message. It challenges me as a father to teach my children more intentionally on the doctrines of the faith.
I would agree, though, in many cases it is the role of parents, not youth group pastors, to train children in righteousness. We parents need to love our children enough to train them. That love engenders us parents spending less effort in pursuing the world's vanities and pursuing all means possible to equip ourselves and our children to live in this dark age.
I applaud you for training both children and adults. The youth pastor job description is miscast. He should be involved in training parents and families on the Gospel truths, not diverting youth with entertainment.
Great Sermon! Thank you, Brother Johnston. It is a helpful and sober reminder that the walk of us parents has great impact - good or bad - on our children. I seek to be more serious about prayer for the Lord's mercy on our family. Thank you.
Great Sermon! Thank you for providing this lesson in PDF. It allows the reader to reflect on the gravity of the subject of eternal destiny. Take time with people, especially family, and teach the Gospel.
Great Sermon! Thank you for this message on inner cowardice. Please include me in prayer that I would fear God more than man and love people more than protecting self from irrational fear. Blessings to you and your church!
Great exposition Thank you for this exposition of Abraham in Genesis 16-17. Your explanation of circumcision (true vs.false, outer and inner) was particularly helpful. As a father, I am concerned with showing my children what it truly means to be born again. Thank you.
Good perspective Thank you for your PDF on 1 John 4. A helpful contrast between the true comfort for the believer in Christ in the midst of a confusing and depraved world. Also appreciate the teaching that He can return at any time (yet we do not have to live in despair whether He does now or later).
