Great Sermon! What I thought was a difficult passage to understand, Pastor Hines has made abundantly clear, powerfully making the case for our salvation being entirely of grace and not of our own works. Thanks!
Everybody is entitled to their own opinion but lets not go to name calling. I'm a Liberal but I love everybody and seeing that this is a Gospel website it seems fitting that we stay focused on Jesus Christ
Woman from wisconsin...there is One who has suffered greater than you, and can sympathize with you in your suffering. stop comparing yourself with others, its leading you to bitterness, pride and apathy. turn to the one who knows, and let Him turn your sufferings into a chance to encourage others, not tear them down.
Steve, do you believe Christ is a victim to be offered some 200,000 times daily as a bloodless sacrifice to atone for the sins of the living and the dead? ANYONE who puts they're faith in that Jesus will perish. Read Hebrews 9-10. Do you believe it is a service to God to give these people false hope by affirming they're false Christ and false Gospel?
Amen Christopher. I too have family that are devoted to the RCC. I know far more Catholic doctrine and history than most Catholics do. Be not decieved my brothers, the Catholic church is a deception, a lie, a wolf in sheep's clothing, a demon masquerading as an angel of light, and she will put on any mask she has to to decieve as many as possible. She used to wave a sword, now she waves an olive branch, inside she is ravenous.
So SteveR, if I'm hearing you correctly, it doesn't really matter what Gospel you receive, as long as you are sincere? You preach a different Gospel Steve. Would you have rebuked Paul for anethematizing judaizers? After all, they were just trying to keep parts of the law. No Steve, every Catholic is responsible to the authority they submit to. Men suppression the truth in they're unrighteousness. Romans 1:18 and this is the judgement, the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil john 3:19. I loved my sin too, but Christ called me out of the darkness into his marvelous light! I deserved to stay in my condemnation. I have been praying for you steve
Great Sermon! Thanks for the helpful sermon. This was a very heartfelt and well organized/explained summary of a biblical approach to disciplining - including several comments regarding how young that can begin. I was looking for a sermon to give family members trying to understand what my wife and I are doing with our son, and this is perfect. Thanks!
Great Sermon! Great sermon BUT in Romans 1:28 the word "depraved" mind is used in the NASB. The KJV uses the word "reprobate" mind and these words bear two complete different meanings.
depraved - morally bad or debased; corrupt; perverted
reprobate - One who is predestined to damnation. To abandon to eternal damnation. Used of God.
I am a new believer but I am finding so many vast differences in English translations.
