Great Sermon! Watch the MUSIC they listen to. This could happen anywhere. Ive heard from my step grandson about someting called BLACK METAL, DEATH METAL TOO--WHICH IS SATANIC. IMO any hard ROCK that doesnt have a strong melody is and preaching agains family. This is why i really dont like I-pods OR private music with headphones--(the GRANDSON OF Mr. WALKMAN)
Great Sermon! yup..FEminism is just another way to enslave women. BTW WHAT KIND OF FATHER WOULD LET THEIR DAUGHTERS do that unless they were a 'shot in the dark'..this is NOT INDEPENDENCE... it just could be the CURSE OF ABORTION ON DEMAND....in the human female, it takes 40 WEEKS from conception to birth..now, today is the 40th year 1/22/13 abortion has been legal--the Sarah Palins like you said are just as bad...give their daughters a false sense of security...just look at her DAUGHTERS.. they would be better being housewives of real men instead of what they are doing with man-children, like Levi, etc....
Great Sermon! I think a Godly form of entertainment is to read books to children. I am not married, and cannot believe that married people would go to bars when they could be with and talk to their spouse. What a treasure. Not everyone has such a treasure as a spouse. I have always prayed that God would grant me a wife to build up, disciple and lead into Christ's service. But He has provided kids at a children's English school to teach and read to. Much, much better than ESPN or the bar scene!
Great Sermon! I believe girls are the ones who SUFFER THE MOST on NO ABSOLUTES...I found out on a website that the DATE IS DEAD..the NEW YORK TIMES said Feminists made war on LOVE AND ROMANCE and the Feminists WON. the Article is on americanthinker.com by a Ms. Keller..she WOULD HATE to be a young lady today--she said most young women had to be WHORES to have any kind of social life--this is from a secular mindset to even think this way.
Since you have daughters,and only one son, its good you work with young men--it would be a good way to find your future son-in-laws..LOL
Dont forget: Exodus, Leviticus 2013--(colon left out for emphasis)its the VERSE!--and IMO we need to repent before December this year--i may be wrong though
@Lady Day Remember the socalled 'modern' invention America brought to the world -fast food, tv, cinema, rockn'roll, movies, entertainment, be rich and famous(or at least do so and get the new this and that via credits),and last the incredible proudness, which all together formed the new worlds. It destroyed families, values, ethic and religion.
Great Sermon! Sigh..and 'double sigh"!! and BABIES DONT STAY BABIES FOREVER... they just grow up and perpetuate the SAME THING!..besides many in the extended family are also gone...they have been ABORTED!
Great Sermon! Although I like C.S.Lewis and his Narnia books, i wouldnt like the Hobbit or 'usually' anything else out of England. Wasnt England going 'downhill' spiritually when they let Darwin get a foothold in their country? besides I notice that many occultic scenarios come out of that country especilaly since the late 60s--this is just a thought
Thank you and Self-Defense Many thanks to Kevin and Em for getting fathers and daughters to think more deeply, more biblically, and honor and obey the laws of God to glorify Him more! Tremendous insights by both of you. Even if one doesn't agree with every single point you make, I agree wholeheartedly in the desire to discern the culture and obey God and His laws at all times. Regading self-defense (the one area you say there's not a strong Biblical base for), I hear you, but I think there definitely is a basis for it (Jesus told disciples to sell something a buy a sword if they didn't have one), but it is not an atomistic right, but is a subset of the even more important Biblical right to defend one's family and in just (primarily defensive) war as outlined Biblically by Augustine and other church fathers. Please pray for all us fathers to lead better by example and word in discerning the culture, fighting evil and encouraging our children on this same pathway of obeying and honoring God. The cultural nephilim are daunting and ubiquitous but all things are possible with God. Like David against Goliath, we, the fathersr, as well as our sons and daughters can defeat any nephilim that rises up against the knowledge of God and we can and shall defeat them through Christ, our Lord Sabaoth!
Great Sermon! What a great reminder to dig into the past for the strengths of the past generations of Christians! Our church sings "O Sacred Head Now Wounded", and I never realized it was written in the medieval period. Thanks and God bless!
A look at the motivation of Rick Warren Here is an interesting article looking at Rick Warren's motivation: http://orthosphere.org/2012/12/13/peter-druckers-key-role-in-the-corruption-of-evangelicalism/
Actually, considering the above, it is no surprise that he would waffle.
God bless you, Mr. Swanson for your work!
Thank you Rev. Swanson,
Thank you so much for this message. You and your guest hit the nail on the head when you pointed out that the CT school massacre is a SIN problem. I also benefited from your link of this tragedy to abortion and violent media. Thank you for this thoughtful, Biblical response to the terrible tragedy in Newtown.
