Thanks for the comment and encouragement David. There is much more information about the Christ-mass holy day at "Christ-Mass (Christmas): A Roman Catholic Missions Strategy" at http://ow.ly/rxv0E or at http://www.puritandownloads.com/christmas-is-a-roman-catholic-missions-strategy/.
Thanks for the sermon. I copied this 7 years ago in Texas when my children were young. They, last night at revival, challenged the traveling preacher if he celebrated Xmass. Well, they are now listening to your message as they could not fully answer the preacher who does celebrate Xmass. They are learning. And we, again, thank you for the very, very biblical sermon.
Thank you of this reminder of God's faithful provision when all we can see in front of us is a potential massacre, whether it is from illness, lack of finances, betrayal or even an all out spiritual war...He protects and provides for us when we raise our prayers to Him that is able. As long as we are walking in His will, having completely submitted our lives to Him, walking in His Light through the holy scriptures (His love letter to us),keeping in step with the Holy Spirit's prompting, we know we can turn to Him and with confidence, expect His answer and continual care. What a gift that we can call Him Abba, Father.
APA admitted there was an error in the DSM and announced plans to correct its manual to make it clear that it does not classify pedophilia as a sexual orientation.
âThe American Psychiatric Associationâs (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) has recently been published after a comprehensive multi-year research and review of all of its diagnostic categories,â the statement reads.
âIn the case of pedophilic disorder, the diagnostic criteria essentially remained the same as in DSM-IV-TR. Only the disorder name was changed from 'pedophilia' to âpedophilic disorderâ to maintain consistency with the chapterâs other disorder listings.
â'Sexual orientationâ is not a term used in the diagnostic criteria for pedophilic disorder and its use in the DSM-5 text discussion is an error and should read âsexual interest.â In fact, APA considers pedophilic disorder a âparaphilia,â not a âsexual orientation.â This error will be corrected in the electronic version of DSM-5 and the next printing of the manual.
I can't help leaving another message after listening to the morning service this past Sunday. Really love it.
What is interesting is that the pastor in my Shanghai church also preached the message of loving God with our whole heart, our whole mind, and our whole will. It was really touching. Also, he encouraged us to try our best to love the Lord.
God is great. We are all weak sinners but only His word can change us and hold us fast.
Finally, want to let Pastor Mercer know that I am praying for him when I think about FFPC.
God is good. We'll never regret about what we've done for Him when we eventually meet Him that day.
Seems as if tony's old boss Ray Comfort would make the case that women should preach the gospel in the open air. Here's an article from On the Box written just about 1-year ago: http://www.onthebox.us/2012/07/should-woman-testify-in-open-air.html
Hello! I am so excited to see this ministry. I was saved at Valley Church 23 years ago and I was so blessed to sit under Pastor Steele's preaching for the years until he passed. I consider him my earthly spiritual father. What a man of God! I am thankful that I was baptized by him because he taught me so much in the early days of my faith. How do I get copies of his messages? I have tapes at my family home in California but I would love to have them here where I live now.
