Easter... Easter is born of paganism brother Waite. Easter is translated once in the KJV as such. Every other place it is translated as passover from the same root word. Easter has no place in the Christian Church. Please study the origins of Easter, it's as pagan as Christmas is.
Great Sermon! Beautiful singing... I love finding sermons on here that include the worship songs, as this one does. I wish I could hear such wonderful worship all the day every day! I praise God for this beautiful reminder of the fellowship of the saints & family of God
Great Sermon! This is a good reminder that it profits us nothing if we gain the whole world but forfeit our souls. That Jesus Christ is one and only treasure. I am greatful to God that in Jesus He saves ordinary and, especially, weak and foolish people.
I think it worth mentioning a story regarding Michael Jordan. I worked at a Bible camp and kids from Chicago were bused in one week. I shared with them that only through Jesus can a person be saved, and that the most famous and glorified people they knew of would not be saved because of their feats and exoneration, even Michael Jordan. That if they never repent and believe in Jesus Christ, they too will be cast out by God into eternal punishment for their sins. One of the kids said he couldn't believe that Michael Jordan might go to hell one day. "No way! Nah, not Michael!" He exclaimed.
I hope that God will turn MJ to Jesus and some day he will believe in the Savior. Mickey Mantle believed in Jesus shortly before his death, as is credibly testified by Bobby Richardson in "Impact Player." I hope and pray that Jordan will not reject the Lord.
Thanks again for the sermon.
Great Sermon! Very encouraging testimony of God's love. "My hope is not in an event (healing) but in a person, Jesus Christ." I am recovering from cancer and my health is terrible, so this testimony was very special to me.
Great Sermon! This sermon is a lot of food for thought to me. I am a football fan and have been increasingly bothered by things in the NFL (and other sports) which is prompting me to search the scriptures and find counsel of worthy pastors. The alcohol commercials, the wild heathen-like behavior of many fans, the incredible arrogance and quarreling of many sports analysts and enthusiasts--especially on facebook--, the rejection of Tim Tebow, the crimes of stars like Aaron Hernandez, and recently, the news of Aaron Rodger's extramarital sex life. I have been so disappointed about these things. This sermon was just what I was looking for. I hope I can take all of the scriptures that this preacher shared and diligently apply them to my heart and mind. I highly recommend this sermon to anyone wondering what God thinks about sports.
Wrong about the ALS challenge The money donated as a result of the ALS challenge does NOT go towards embryonic stem cell research. Not only are many people donating to organizations that have no part at all in that type of research, but the ALSA (the largest collector of donations from the challenge) put out a statement that the money coming in as a result of the challenge is not used for that purpose. Please do some research before making judgments about those who participate in the challenge.
Response to Faye of Atlanta @Faye from Atlanta,
Prayerfully consider this:
Jesus says that if you look lustfully at a woman you have already committed adultery. This reveals that whether we are married, remarried, or single not one of us is righteous because we all lust in our hearts. Thus, we are all aldulterers. We All are sinners and fall short of his glory. Only in Christ are we made righteous. As christ and Paul says, if you are married do not divorce. Very simple. Two wrongs dont make a right:)
Great Sermon! A powerful exposition and explaination of facts and Scripture surrounding not only the Preservation of God's Word but the Infaliability of it. I was deeply moved in my spirit at the humble confession of this man concerning Psalm 12:7 and his renewed understanding of it's context in Chapter 12. Sir, your fruits shine to a generation that do still seek after Him in Truth and spirit and I thank you for your tremendous effort in proclaiming this information.
Great Sermon! A great in-depth and very well communicated exposition of doctrinal terms and truths used within the churches. Harold uses an easy to understand format in his teaching that I really like, detailed facts and scriptural knowledge that clearly conveys the messages he speaks. Thanks and God Bless Harold.
Great Sermon! A great sermon which sheds much needed light on a topic that can leave many souls in confusion that at times lead to a believer's separation from the true doctrines of Jesus Christ. This information is vital to your understanding of the Bible's manuscripts and how God divinely preserves His Word through the ages and each generation. It helps reveal to the Christian that his or her spiritual battle is also against the worldly and demonic winds of doctrine that have cut through unto the spiritual bodies of certain denominational churches by subtle means of changing God's Word over time much like the serpent beguiled Adam's wife during the time of sin's first entrance into the world of man.
Char wrote: My parents work for Bluewater. My mother is completely horrified that there have been death threats, temper tantrums and all sorts of rude and nasty behavior from those claiming to be Christians, over this. Every time anyone around me hears about the hate mail and abuse involved, the first thing out of their mouth is "well I hope it's not coming from the Christian side!" and then there is this great shock when the reply is "it is..." ... and right now so-called Christians are now stooping lower than anyone else. It's frightening to think of the damage done and you can only pray that people are able to see that no true Christian could ever excuse such behavior.
Sadly, distribution of Bibles in schools is near pointless as they wont be opened and read if "Christians" conduct themselves with such self-rightoeus, hypocritical, murderous hearts.
Same often applies to these forums too. Lord have mercy.
