Great Message! You have presented a mindset/attitude needed by all believers, particularly in first-world cultures. Simple in explanation, yet needing deep and extensive application. Thanks Alastair.
Great Sermon! Great Sermon and I know that God will always love me.
BUT, how do I get back my time (in reality) if my time was always given/ taken from, others.
I am thankful that Jesus Christ died for me and took my sins, but I can't move forward until I get what I missed, doing for others, back for myself.
That is just the way it is. God Bless.
WE ARE FAR MORE ALIKE THAN DIFFERENT You really don't have anything to worry about. If you were to speak truth to power, you would have nothing to fear. Our number one enemies are ignorance and the belief that one religion is somehow superior to another. Perhaps if you led the way by showing acceptance, those unwitting subscribers of your rather extreme ideology might follow your example. This kind of very narrow view takes time to widen. You have our sincerest compassion and hope for a future free of ignorance. Freedom is really letting go, not adhering blindly to some extreme belief devoid of reason.
Great Sermon! As a two year convert to Catholicism I actually use these sermons as a comedy hour. We Catholics believe in faith AND works.Not just works. Not once I ever heard in bible class, RCIA, sermon etc did I hear that I will go to heaven just by doing good works. Anyways keep me entertained.
Great Sermon! This is an extremely doctrinal sermon. Unfortunately too many people get offended with truth because it contradicts their particular shallow understanding of proper division and context when studying scripture, as commanded by God (2 Tim.2:15). People give into popular myths and pour into the Bible their own tradition and assumptions. Let us study and search the scriptures to see whether those things be so. Excellent and poignant message! Where has the doctrine of hell disappeared to in our pulpits today???
Powerful message! I am in number person I love math. So I had wondered in the past last year of 2014 why Ash Wednesday and Easter didn't match to 40 days. It can either be 46 or 47 days. So I googled it before. Supposedly and I believe it's the Fridays that you don't have to do your 40 days of fasting. Then it adds to 40 days. But for example if you were fasting from soda or ice cream and you go to someone's house and they offer you a soda or ice creme on your fasting days you are obligated to take it because the gift of hospitality and you are not breaking your fast. But I haven't finished listening to the message yet I'm 18 minutes into it.
