Great Sermon! Anytime an articulate and learned man speaks from the pulpit, it can be interpreted as, "great."
Here's the real problem with charasmatics: they don't really believe what Paul said in chapter twelve. (That's First Corinthians Twelve, the controversial Spiritual Gifts chapter; the dividing line for the denominations.) If that were so, we wouldn't have to deal with guys with doves on their jackets, or people rolling on the floor laughing like big Brown dogs.
I am a pentecostal. I believe every word in the Bible. I do not listen to other men and base my feelings of safety in Christianity on what they say. FYI the best preachers have already died. Tozer, Reidhead, Chambers, Wesley. Chambers, BTW was a Baptist who couldn't get ordained until he joined the Pentecostal Prayer League. Mr. Sprouse IS a wonderful speaker. So is Casey Treat in Washington State. My point exactly. BTW the Methodist Church is Wesley's legacy. Too bad they don't follow his teaching any longer....
I don't know who else saw this tidbit, but I noticed that among the "religious group leaders" listed, the media has managed to get race into the race. sadly, though, those opposing the loudest ARE "religious". The Church of Jesus Christ is largely sleeping, be they fundamentalist, evangelical or black, supposing there IS a third genre of protestant "religious group". I'm just disgusted with the whole affair. Too bad we have rainbows, if you catch my drift...
The only people who are dissatisfied are the "fully devoted followers of Christ". And the marketing gurus are going to tell them to "start learning how to take responsibility for their own feeding" -- maybe they'll be sent to sermonaudio? Good one! Too many people are stuck in the religious rut and don't know what to do to get out. I'm speaking from experience, here. I was in a spitiual coma. Once I was even force-fed purpose driven kibbles and bits until I hurled on the brand-new crimson carpet. Wake up! "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Eph 5:14 NASB (the REAL Bible )
Good one, Jerry! My immediate first reaction. This ties into something I've been doing re: the new hate crimes bill. America is on the fast track to Hell and the people love it so! "Medium"s on TV, Homosexuality in the "Church", God removed from the pledge... Don't get me started! Oops! too late! Awake! Awake! Put on strength! Arise from your sleep and Christ will give you light!
