Very clear and helpful! Excellent resource to share with any who are struggling with an OT verses NT mentality of God and His law. It obviously doesn't address all questions inquiring minds will have, but gives sold principles and a faithful foundation from which to build. The lesson leads to a clear gospel, and even evangelistic, emphasis. Good job Curtis.
Great Sermon! A really encouraging sermon that there are people out there in the same boat and who understand and a great reminder that the Lord understands most of all. He mentioned at the end how encouraging it is to read reports from Heartcry of all that God is doing in the world. This is also where i find encouragement. In fact, my husband and i read a missionary report every night before we pray together just to encourage ourselves and remind ourselves there is real work being done for the kingdom out there and God still has his many out there even though we don't have any where we are.
Great Sermon! God bless you for this sermon.
Our hearts are so hardened to this abortion horror!
It is sad to know how hard our hearts are to the horrors of Nazi Germany also. How can any follower of Jesus Christ look for any justification for the destruction of His gift of life?
Great Sermon! Thank you for addressing gluttony. I don't know of many pastors that will do so.
There was one thing that I'm not sure I understood though. You said that if a person lacked self-control, they didn't have the Holy Spirit? Did I understand you correctly?
Can a person be struggling (yet lacking in self-control) but also a Christian? I believe so, but would like to hear your understanding on this, thanks!
Seek the Truth ! Why did Germany turn on the Jews ? Well, you wont find your answer in Jewish owned Hellywood propaganda movies or documentaries, nor will you find it in Jewish owned media outlets, publications and newspapers. If one would be a lover of the truth he would surely study himself approved unto GOD a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth-2Tim2:15. Germany turned on the Jews for a reason and it was because the Jews betrayed the very Country that gave them a place of freedom which allowed them to work, own businesses and provide abundantly for their families. These German "zionist Jews turned against their homeland and made a deal with Great Britain to get the US to go to war as allies with Great Britain against Germany. This deal was called " The Balfour Declaration" and it was Great Britain's promise to the German "zionist" Jews that if they got the US into the war (WW1)to side with them against Germany then they would seek to give them Palestine for their land.(Listen to Jewish Benjamin Freedman's Speech-1961). In brief, Germany soon came to a knowledge of the truth and turned on their betrayers "Jews" who they cared for and accepted equally as their Countrymen. The rest is History but not as Hellywood or the zionist owned media portrays it.Mat7:7
Some inaccuracies Brother, I spent over 10 years in the oneness pentecostal movement. I was saved while attending a UPC church in 2000. I left Oneness Pentecostalism in 2011 so I'm hardly an advocate for that segment of Christianity (though I strongly believe that many oneness pentecostals are regenerate, despite some bad theology/soteriology). I would just simply point out that there are several inaccuracies in your sermon, that very few if any oneness pentecostals believe. (Excepting some extreme fringe adherents).
To paint all oneness pentecostals (a movement that is very diverse and not at all monolithic) with such a broad brush is overly simplistic, and is about as accurate as unbelievers judging all of the claims and practice of Christianity based on the abuses prominent on Christian Television. Or for non trinitarians to conclude that all trinitarians believe in 9 persons of the godhead because Benny Hinn promoted such a bizarre view.
I would simply suggest approaching this subject in the future with continued humilty, charity, and increased accuracy.
True. Fellowship is pretty lean. As per Hebrews 3:13 we are suppose to encourage, exhort and admonish each other daily. Reality is barely weekly with Sunday worship. Looking forward to the heavenly place. When we see Him, we shall be like Him - 1 John
Needed more than Ever! Great Sermon! Thank you for teaching on this. I love my brethren and I have learned much in the way of theology. But holiness, and sin condemned is often over looked. I grieve for my brethren. I grieve for this nation. I grieve for myself and my own failings before the Lord. God give us strength to endure and intercede for the ones who just don't get it yet. Thank you. Feeling comforted
Great Sermon! Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil(Zep 1:12).
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God (1 Pet. 4:17).
The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16).
If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain(Jam 1:26);
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell (Jam 3:6);
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:(1 Pet 3:10);
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men(Titus 3:2).
