context is key Mr.Brown would have totally lost a debate with John MacArthur. sola Scriptura is rendered null if not for CONTEXT! Brown essentially misused Scripture right off the bat in his arguments.Of course, God's sheep hears His voice as they are prompted by God as pointed out by MacArthur...the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is present today as in the new birth and our yielding to Him but that doesn't automatically mean that we are to do the signs and wonders. The greatest thing that any Christian has the privilege of doing is being obedient to the Great Commission. God can heal. God can do anything. We don't need "healers"...btw it is the "gifts" (plural) of healing..not the "gift" of healing.It was a gift to those who were recipients of said gift. We don't need affirmation of new revelation. We have the completed Word of God.Prophecy is the speaking forth of the Word, not new revelation. We have His Word and His Spirit. Seemingly, we also have poverty in discernment among the more in-your-face charismatic "brethren".
Great Topic! Very funny to hear how the media doesn't have any effort to make their own topics up and do their own research. We need more reporters like you Pastor,who takes the time out and does your research in times that you are not well and literally just having a seizure. I will continue to Pray for your strength and comfort and thanks again for all that you do.
Great program! So true! Many times while doing research I find the same thing! Many sources with the same story, same pictures. I would say it is a worldwide problem. I often read articles from overseas and I find the same thing happening all the time.
Great Comment! SC from Ohio - I echo your statements - "Get that plastic defiled "baby" out of the manger and focus on proclaiming the Good News (all of it) daily.I am thankful that others are listening to these programs.How sweet it is to hear my brothers and sisters so eager to see our Savior glorified! Those are two words I never want to see together!
get real Forget Horus ruining christmas. How about the Truth putting a dent in it? The veracity of pagan roots are irrelevant. The truth is that God never gave us the date of Christ's Incarnation which in and of itself is problematic, particularly when dealing with the foundation of Christianity, which is Truth. Besides using the blasphemous, oxymoron "christmas" which tries to blend Christ, the One time, it is finished, Sacrifice/Propitiation with the term "mass" which is an ongoing re-offering up of Christ. No matter how one observes a day or intends to use a phrase, "mass" (when affiliated with the catholic church) still means "mass". Would zealous Christians still hurl greetings if the day were called "gay day"? The only holy days that God ever gave were the Jewish ones which were a foreshadowing of Christ Who has come (past tense) which would automatically make man-made religious "holidays" of non-effect.Please get the plastic, defiled "baby" out of the manger and focus on proclaiming the Good News (all of it) daily.
Good Comments on Christian Radio Thanks for your comments on Camping's Family Radio network and Christian radio; you could do a whole series of messages on that, or an article in the business media.
I still listen to FR for its music; it has the same stuff my church choir sings many times, so much so that I think the choir director is getting ideas from FR.
As to why Camping went off track? Maybe the focus on end-times theology. Many sects like 7th Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses got their start from that focus, though today they are known for other emphasis.
Great Sermon! http://soundofanalarm.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/what-is-christian-rap-holy-hip-hop-music.html#more
'The Apostles, who when they went out to minister to the Gentile world and confronted pagan culture, didn't resort to employing practices found in that same pagan culture to present the gospel to these pagans. They remained faithful to the methods God had ordained. The preaching of the cross of Christ was 'foolishness' to the Gentiles, 1 Corinthians 1:23, but it was blessed of God to the saving of souls and the separating of a people out from among pagan culture to live for and serve the living and the truth God. Surely it is best and Scriptural to remain true to what has the blessing of God upon it!'
