Great Sermon! I didn't know much about what was going on in Nothern Ireland. This presentation puts America's freedom of religion into perspective, and shows a different Christianity where Christians pay a price for their beliefs.
Along with this sermon, I found a book "Teach Yourself The History Of Ireland" -- I do not know how good the material in this book is (anyone from Northern Ireland want to review it?), but it does help put the people, groups, dates, and places into context. This is extremely helpful background information for me. I would recommend skimming a book like this before listening to the lecture if you are not familiar with the Irish situation, to get more out of the talk.
Great Sermon! I only wish more Reformed believers would take time to listen to both part 1 and 2 to understand the real issues regarding bible translations. Both sermons will cause so many serious questions that need to be answered and so much relevant and interesting factual information that you just might not have previously heard on the blurb of those new versions or from Pastor!
Excellent sermons from the same reformed WCF Protestant view as The Trinitarian Bible Society!
More sermons needed like this! I couldn't concur more with Pastor Ralph. I truly appreciate more pastors speaking out against this fraudulent junk of the Roman Catholic Church. There is nothing Christain about it. There is no TRUTH to found and yet so many people have been seduced by satan and what's even more unconscionable is the fact that our leading Evangelical Brothers have come along side the Catholic Church in an alliance for so called "morality". ECT (Evangelicals and Catholics coming together) document is no equal partnership, but a one way street to Rome and Rome will gain final control to usurp and dominate the world (Rev. 17). There must be an urgency in true believers to warn continually against this blantant apostasy and to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered unto the saints. In you love Christ, you will be loyal to His Truth at all cost. No amount of money, political clout , or power can temp you to commit treason against Jesus Christ. Like Peter, these "new Evangelicals", as they are called, have betrayed our Lord and have denied Him. I pray for repentence from the likes of Billy Graham, Pat Robertson, Chuck Colson, James Dobson, J.I. Packer, and so many more and most importantly I pray for courage; for that is what is needed today. You can not compromise with the devil.
Great Sermon! As usual, great teaching from Pastor Ovadal! True Christians must resist the lie that the Roman Catholic Church represents Christ. Furthermore, we must pray for the salvation of those who are under the spell of the papacy.
Great Sermon! I agree with the thrust of this sermon - that the text of the original Bible needs to be translated word-for-word and accurately. There are too many translations now that take liberties with the Bible's meaning. Over the years, I've really come to understand just how important this is. Also, I'd really like a KJV defender to give me more information about two things: (1) Why do KJV defenders believe using the KJV implies a person has sound doctrine? My experience has been that doctrinal errors come from KJV users as much as anyone (especially the Word of Faith movement, which has all but replaced Christianity as America's belief system), and correct doctrine comes from NKJV,ESV, etc users; and (2) instead of dying over and over on the hill of trying to get people to use a translation they simply don't understand, why don't KJV defenders pool their resources and create a modern, readable, understandable translation based on the TR? The KJV may be perfect, but it is so antique that people don't understand it. Wasn't the Reformation meant to give us the Bible in our own language? If the NKJV and ESV are not acceptable, why not create a translation that is? I'm really curious about this.
A GODLY SAVING MESSAGE i wish the pastors &church leaders etc here in my home town northwich could even understand your message let alone act on it and preach it, as its sadly all prosperity gospel of love etc in my home town, that is why i travel the distance to chester to hear a like minded pastor to yourself
pastor David Carson
may God bless your ministries and work
Clear & forceful FOUNDATIONAL teaching! Thank you brother Ralph. A great outline of primary PROBLEMS with the corrupt [2 Cor. 2:17 ]'bibles'(like the MESS-age):
I really liked the warning against marketing ploys, and silly formated for demographics 'bible for teens','bible for women','bible for men' ad nauseum.
How dare anyone take the words of God and put it into THEIR words: this even applies in Ovadal's advice to "Forget about STUDY Bibles, read His Word, with a decent concordance, and read it over and over!"
Take notes on the list about 25 minutes in of the KEY verses showing the need for specific words being defended from deletion/corruption."For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ."
Doctrines are changed by subtle ( Gen 3:1) word changes: the real meat of this message, the doctrinal differences (30 minutes in) makes clear why this is not a periperal issue. The WEIRD Mess-Age Peterson version shows the way these drain the power of the fire of God's word: Jer.23:29-3
"Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbor..."
Is.30:9"speak unto us smooth things"?NO!
Thank you, Pastor Ovadal Dear Pastor Ovadal,
Thank you for preaching on the Cross of Christ.
I commend Christians who are reaching out to the youth as you have done, and are still doing. The good LORD knows the wicked are certainly distributing their ungodly message through gov't school books.

Great Sermon! pro sports is definatley an idol most people fight over it ,argue whose the best etc..this falls into idolatry, covetousness ,pride etc.
just another money making gimmick .
these atheletes "claim" to be christian but yet guess who they choose on Sunday the day their games are played on ,do they choose God & Church ? or the world ,self satisfaction
Great Sermon! God will certainly accomplish that which He pleases...this sermon is a great encouragement to continue in our evangelism no matter how discouraging our efforts humanly 'appear'.
Pastor Kevin Keenan testifies how as a Roman Catholic he was then converted having accepted a Christian Evangelistic Tract pointing to Christ. (How he consequently left that false system). The wonderful Sovereign grace of God.
Having also providentially heard this morning another sermon dealing with evangelism and trct distribution:God's Word Never Returns Void
(The Promises of God ¬∑ 10 of 10
9/11/2005 (SUN) ¬∑ Isaiah 55-Rev S Hamilton) http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?currSection=new&sermonID=2406212546
Hearing both sermons is sure to be a great blessing and encouragement to sow that precious seed which is the word of God!
May God greatly encourage Pastor Overdal, keenan and Hamilton in their labours to honour God.
Extremely Important Info! Every Christian should be aware of the doctrines of false prophet Benny Hinn, who continues to wreck Christianity with his bogus healings and flock-fleecing appeals for money. Be certain to listen to this sermon, and also to Pastor Ian Brown's sermon on Benny Hinn. Also, listen to the sermons by Pastor Trevor Hammack on the charismatic movement's false healing doctrines (parts 2 and 3 of his charismatic series). Disseminate these sermons widely!
A Must-Hear Program With Super Bowl Sunday just around the corner, this is a must-hear program! As stated on the program, spectator sports are worldly and effeminizing; and sports ministries, like Sports Spectrum, are unbiblical and profane. Thanks for hitting the nail right on the head!
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Ovadal,
Thank you for preaching on spiritual warfare, while exposing the darkness deceiving many, and encouraging Christians to stay faithful to Christ. I found this week's sermon to be very encouraging.
Great Sermon! Thank the Lord there are still men that preach with spiritual backbone.
This is an absolutely must hear sermon for today!
Rick Warren is evil, The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe do not depict Christ but rather are false and of satan. Here is a Pastor who does not "Beat around the bush".
Thank you Pastor Ovadal for being faithful and forthright.
Great Sermon! Dear Pastor Ovadal,
All I can do is bow my head in shame and ask God's forgiveness for breaking the LORD's first four commandments so often... Yet, I can also praise God for raising up preachers such as yourself whom He is using to lead us to repentance. Praise the LORD for your message. Thank you.
Your sister in Christ,
Great Sermon! Praise the LORD! I just listened to Pastor Ovadal's sermon preached at Londonderry Free Presbyterian Church, and I am pleased to say he has done America proud... For the christians who want their ears tickled, don't listen to this sermon; but for the Christians who want their hearts enlarged for King Jesus, please listen.
Thank you to Pastor Ovadal for a job well done. May the good LORD continue to bless His people with such fine preaching.
