    “ Really Great! ”
    I am terribly thankful for this sermon! The uncompromised truth of God's Word is needed so desperately in a time of so many who want to wrest the scripture, trying to conform it to their brand of theology! Praise God! This is TRUTH! Salvation is of HIM! And He says Everyone that thirsts, let HIM COME unto Me! Sovereign grace does not negate our responsibility! "Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!" -Romans 11:33 Thanks Pastor Harris

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Pastor Sean,  I have struggled for years understanding how to make sense of the Doctrine of Election. Sadly it seemed to me that the doctrine was taken and misinterpreted by many denominations so that most baptist's only opinion on election was to reject what they saw as the false teaching on it and have no opinion or explanation of the abundance of Biblical verses and references. I feel like I had been taught to skip over or ignore these verses and just reject any reference to "election" that I came across in the Scriptures. If a discussion or preaching was ever had about "election" it always ended up on Calvinism and was dismissed as heresy, but what am I to do with what is a continuing subject in the Bible. Like you mentioned, it runs from Genesis to Revelation with reference after do we understand this obviously important truth and how to apply it? Thank you for being a Godly leader and humble servant in tackling this doctrine. It was the most informative, applicable, solid preaching on the subject I have ever heard.
