Great Sermon! My Husband is taking classes and next semester is the book KINGDOM OF THE CULTS!
I am so glad I came upon your teachings. This will be helpful to him.
PS. I was raised in Christian Science... But left it many years ago. My Brothet still (sadly) practices it.
May God Bless You for what you do. DEBBIE in Greenfield Indiana ...
Re: 'Us, rather then them' The statement "we give more money to enemies over seas than we do in food stamps" is not true. The US budget is public information. I did a follow up podcast in response to this comment titled "Foreign Aid and Food Stamps." Check it out learn what the actually numbers are. You will be surprised. Moreover, we might ask: Who are our enemies? Certainly not the small children starving to death in Africa.
Great Sermon! This was a fantastic commentary, but, how can we complain about the war on Christmas when 80% of the churches in america will have their doors locked on Christmas day? A couple of us have noticed, according to the websites, that neither berean nor the church of the pastor on O'Reillys show are holding a Christmas day service. If Jesus is really the reason for the season, shouldn't we spend a great deal of our time on Christmas say in fellowship, and worshipping Him? I know that we must sacrifice some of our time in order to attend Christmas day service, but is it really to much to ask? If he hung on a cross in sacrifice for us, I think the least we could do is sacrifice a little of our time for him. I love you guys and appreciate everything you do, but change needs to start with us.
Great Sermon! U don't know me, but as I was at the gym.....I listened to this message....It truly has taken me a little higher and a little closer to my Jesus, my husband, and my friend..
Thanks for your faithfulness in preaching the Word!
You just never know who is listening!
Walk with the King!
And be a Blessing!
Yours in Christ!
Thank you for proclaiming the truth. When we so often hear statements based on feelings or opinion, it is a blessing to have a biblical response given concerning such an important issue. Thank you for telling the truth.
Us, rather then them We give more money to enemies over seas than we do in food stamps. Why do most Right Wing Christian talk about food stamps but never and I mean never talk about Aid giving to enemies. No wonder people in low income area voted Obama even if they didn't agree with his postions.
The problem is the Church does really care about all people just their social circles and in their on buildings. This breeds hate & the moving away from Christ.
Great Sermon! I see that Rick Warren was going somewhere...there are definitely genes that are affected by sin, right? People are born with all types of "sinful" ailments, couldn't gayness be one of them? Rick was correct in that just because we have a feeling, doesn't mean we should act on it. We all have sinful weaknesses that we have to watch out for. This is on of the arguments I've been debating people with for a while.
