    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Just when I almost was ready to give up my search for a faithful church not an entertainment club to satisfy my hunger for the rightly divided word of truth I tuned in to this sermon. May God continue to bless your ministry and give you continued wisdom in His magnificent and Holy word.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Nothing comes before the Lord. There was never special music before Jesus spoke. There was however those who needed to be saved and healed. So needed that a man was lowered by friends from a roof. May we lower the lost through the roof instead of offering entertainment may we offer what is pleasing to God. To preach the word.

    “ Fantastic Sermon!!! ”
    This is a timely and OUTSTANDING message. I was immensely blessed by hearing this edifying, encouraging, and courageous sermon. If there was ever a message that today's church was in need of, it is this one! May God blessed this servant of God for taking on the "church growth" issue.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    A great sermon. Oh how well Rev. Stephen sets out what the Bible really teaches about worship. So many churches today are falling away from the Word to other "man made" ways to attract more people into their churches.
