Great Sermon! Mark Driscoll is a heretic. Eph 5:3-7 tells us to put away filthy language, coarse jesting, etc and not to have fellowship with people like that. This is speaking to those whp say they are believers. Pro 6:17-19 says God hates a lying tongue, and those who cause trouble with his brother. 2John:10-11 tells believers not to let a false teacher into their homes this validating them. Gal 1:8-9 brings a curse to anuone preaching another gospel. 1Tim6:3-5 tells us what a false teacher looks like. The person is contentious. 1Tim 3:1-9 gives the qualifications of an elder. From what we know about Mark Driscoll, does he fall in line? We are to distance ourselves from false teachers and have no fellowship with them. Grace Community did well to take his books and politely send him away based on scripture. There are other passages not listed here to back that up. Mark was a plant of satan. Satan is at the heart of the charismatic movement and was seething about it taking place. We are sheep. Dumb, fearful, and easily led astray. It would have been dangerous and foolish to let him in and pass out books. We know what he is by his teaching. Shephard's are to protect sheep or else they are not real shephards, but hirelings.
Charasmania That was the most rational charasmatic I've heard. I haven't heard him preach though. Knowing MacArthur the way I do, his focus is on the fringe or over the top groups, if you will. Perhaps The Strange Fire Conference, could have done a better job of promoting who the problem is, but it gets to be a slippery slope. Dr. Brown mentioned not throwing out the baby with the bathwater but we are reminded a little leaven spoils the whole lump. I had been involved with Calvary Chapels for many years and there was no tongues or heavy revy's going on. Raising hands during music was about as charasmitic as it got. Nothing strange at all in MA and TX.
Good speaker. Some charismatics like Joel Osteen seems so irrelevant. In these cases, I cannot detect a single baby in the bath water. So it doesnt matter if we just dump the water away w impunity.
Great Sermon! We owe an unimaginable amount of money. How could we ever possibly pay this back? Even if we spent all the money the government takes from the citizens on the debt, how long would that take to pay off? Talk about a government shut down. Eventually this is gonna blow up in our faces, and the people smelling the flowers and gazing at the pretty pictures are gonna go coo coo for cocoa puffs. Scary times we live in, especially if people are sober and paying attention.....I pray Christ comes soon. I don't want my kids to have to deal with this garbage.
U rock pastor Hammack, thanks for doing what u do.
Charismadness! If McAuthor is painting with a broad brush an it causes True penticostals (an baptist) to wake up an examine a growing witchcraft type cult in their movement... because they haven't done it.....Then so be it!!!.....Todd bentley an those false Apostles that he's affiliated with just to name a few....
Impressive conference. Listened to one of the first speakers but fell asleep and when awoke next morning it had ended with the announcement of an impressive buffet dinner for the participants. Hope the organisers will broadcast all the speaches after conference ends in 3days. Thks vry much for informing everyone abt this conference or many would not know abt it. Btw your newsif has always been EXTREMELY useful in getting the word out abt present events. Thats y i listen to u everyday.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Hammack for the heads up
about this conference. Yes this is VERY
important as the Word Faith movement is VERY dangerous and more conferences like this is needed!I pray tons of people watch it and the word is spread about these poisonous teachings!
Great Sermon! I think it is important to have an understanding of Catholicism. More than 1 billion people are Catholic so it just makes sense. Also I agree that people should hear everything the Pope says in interviews before they take certain things out of context.
Great Sermon! Biblical commentary from unbelievers. Satan is busy whispering lies into their ears which are itching. I think unbelievers and "christians" will
go see it. Remember Roma Downey and her husbands Bible miniseries.
Fantastic News in Foucus Program! After sharing your program with Catholics, this is what they had to say:
'I have found this to be a very interesting link and it has raised many questions for me and I HAVE to agree with Trevor when he says that if one condemns Catholicism then everyone wants to listen and likes you but if one tries to be fair and reasonable nobody wants to know, I have experienced the very same!'
It is great to see that you are making a difference even if it is just one Catholic at the time. Praying for this person's salvation.
