Great Sermon! This message from Pastor Don Fortner was just what I needed to hear. The Lord led me to this sermon earlier today, and I can say that I had never been so blessed by a sermon as I was by this one. Last few weeks I have been struggling with deep depression. some days better than others, but mostly very difficult. Sunday was one of the worst. This message by Bro. Fortner was medicine to my soul and I am forever grateful the Lord used it to bless me. To God be the glory. Thank you Pastor Fortner.

Great Sermon! A very important sermon. I didn't want to miss a word but...("cough, cough" ‚Äď missed a Bible reference..."riiight", "uh, huh"...various mumblings). Very distracting and annoying. Please, will you let the Pastor communicate the whole message without interruption?
Great Sermon! I never agree with you on every thing you've said on SermonAudio, but that would be UN realistic if I said I did. The thing appreciate about Berean is the willingness to take scripture for what it says. Stand strong and know that God will honor your effort to obey.
Great Sermon! This message comes up frequently in Mr. Washer's sermons, basically that there are no truly great men of God. But in all honesty those who have done the most were extremely intelligent, brought up with character-building discipline (usually in a Christian home too) and from upper class families. Brainerd, Judson, Luther, Amy Carmichael, Spurgeon, MLJ, and more. All of these were wise and noble. Mr. Washer himself could have been a gas & oil lawyer so he should not claim to be below average in intelligence. When I hear these kinds of messages it just crushes me. I wasnt raised in a Christian family, I barely graduated high school, and I struggle with huge faults. It is hard to believe that God would use me. The only really normal people I know of who were greatly used of God were Gladys Aylward and the disciples of Jesus. Anyways, just my reaponse to this sermon.
Heaven I just downloaded this sermon so I can't comment on it yet, but I've heard some things about Heaven.
Since God is infinite, what we learn from Him and about Him will never diminish. It will be knowledge forever expanding.
God will sing to us. If there is some music now that is so beautiful it can move us to tears, what about Him and the music He can express? What about our ability to receive His expressions of love with no sin nature to hinder us?
God is Beautiful. How can we even imagine anything remotely similar to beauty that He alone is? Again, no sin nature to hinder us from beholding and appreciating Him.
My two cents worth.
If a woman was pregnant with an adulterer, would God allow her to give birth to the baby before execution or would God will her to be stoned immediately? Why doesn't God spare pregnant women when He commanded the Isrealites to slaughter other cities? I personally will not judge those who had abortion if it was a product of rape or someone with genetic defect. I pray God have mercy on them and the aborted souls.
She hates it when people use Lord's name in vain. i hate it when I see images of "Jesus" in protestant churches. And some pastors still put images of "jesus" downloaded online and pasted on the powerpoints when giving a sermon. I believe that is idolatry and annoys me greatly.
Babies are sinful and evil just like everyone else. It is wrong for abortion to exist but it is also wrong to assume they were purely innocent as if babies deserve heaven. God never treats Children differently than the others. Has God ever spared infants when he executed his judgement? Not according to my memory of the Old Testament. Remember when a group of kids laughed at a prophet's baldness, God summoned a bear to tear them to pieces. God shows no favouritism. That was the point of my comment.
